"One of the best in Athens!"
We have stayed at the Royal Olympic many times in the past, as well as at other hotels in the Athens are. Royal Olympic is by far one of the best hotels in Athens. The front desk staff, especially Vasily, are outstanding. Polite, courteous and professional. The restaurant staff is well trained and well managed and the food is excellent. The service at the bar should have been a little better for the price but the view makes up for that. In general the hotel is very well maintained and very clean. The location is perfect since it is walking distance from the Acropolis the museum and plaka. I have recomended this hotel to many friends and none have been disappointed. After staying there so many times I figured it is time to leave a review.

"Fairly close to all major historic sites"
Loved that I could walk to all major historical sites. Beautiful hotel. I'd spend the few extra $ for the better room/jr suite next time. Regular rooms are not nearly as nice as what the pics shows. From past experiences, that goes for all hotels I've stayed at. With the exception of most luxury Hilton Brand hotels... Super expensive breakfast, though! I recommend to book a room with breakfast included. €25 per head otherwise.

"Rude Patronizing Reception Personnel"
We booked the Executive room because the picture looked good. Actually the room was smelly and dirty (like a cheap motel room) We complained to the reception people and they just got rude and huffy --Finally got a clean non musty room --If you stay at this hotel you better book the deluxe room or you will find the accomodations poor ---And the staff certainly doesn't know much about pleasing their customers ---They just cop and attitude!!!!!!

"Good choice for uu"
Very nice large suite with very large terrace on the fourth floor. Weak city view with no view of antiquities. Great marble bathroom with excellent bathtub. The front desk personnel told that the AC does not run after the summer so we had to keep the terrace doors open and adjust the noise and coolness balance thus. Great location near Acropolis and metro/trams. Amazing Indian restaurant next door. Friendly staff, nice breakfast, good internet. It was an excellent choice for us to stay here.

"Average room, but great location"
Location across the street from the Temple of Zues and convenient to the Acropolis were big pluses. The hotel areas were very nice, but the rooms were not special but were clean and the beds were comfortable. As noted by others the view from the rooftop restaurant was outstanding. Be sure to see it at both day and night. I paid the price for convenience but would probably opt for something else as transportation was very good in Athens. There was a $15 surcharge for taking a taxi to the airport between 10 pm and 5 am bringing the cost to $53 Euro or around $70!

"Fantastic Hotel and Location"
I spent two nights in Athens at the Royal Olympic en route to Mykonos where I attended a family wedding. I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Room was large, clean, and had every comfort. The rooftop restaurant served a delicious and varied breakfast buffet that didn't seem like a buffet because the food (even the scrambled eggs) seemed like it was made to order. A dinner in the rooftop restaurant at a table with a full view of the Acropolis was first-rate. Easy walk to the Acropolis the next day. The gym was one of the best inner-city hotel gyms I've ever used, and the pool was a nice surprise: large and deep, with nice loungers and large towels at the pool itself. Very international crowd staying at the hotel.

"Great Location - Hotel maintenance lacks"
The hotel appears to be a collection of buildings that are connected with endless corridors. The elevators are spread, very small and do not stop on all floors. The only elevator going all the way to the roof-top kept having problems, one morning it stopped only on the first and top floor. The "business center" has one computer from 1995. When I asked the reception on the eve of my departure for the missing laundry bags, I was told to wait for 14hours until housekeeping would come back to the room. Too bad I had left by than...

"Must Stay for Honeymooners"
EXCELLENT hotel. Extremely clean. Amazing service. Perfect location very central to Acropolis and food-friendly Plaka area. I indicated that my stay was for my honeymoon in my booking comments, and they gave us an upgrade to a beautiful room overlooking Hadrian's arch, with a large balcony from which we could even see the Acropolis! To make matters better, they delivered fruit & free wine to the room. Their rooftop bar/restaurant is excellent, if for nothing else than a nightcap. Will definitely stay here again next time in Athens. THANK YOU Royal Olympic!!!

"Athens Visit"
The Royal Olympic Hotel is a property located directly in the middle of the Parthenon / Acropolis and Olympian / Zeus historical sites which are "must-see" sites while in Athens and furthermore only minutes away from its beautiful downtown shops which must be visited as well for some of the most beautiful artifacts and Greek made souvenirs you can purchase to bring back home with you. The hotel has a gym and a pool which are perfect amenities to get a quick work out in before your daily adventures. The restaurant and lounge upstairs have a spectacular sunset and evening view and must be visited for happy hour at the end of your day. The food was phenomenal and the service from the staff could not have been better. When I visit again, I will definitely stay here.

"Nice hotel with Acropolis view"
This is a nice clean hotel, ideal if you are planning to stay in Athens for a day or two to visit Acropolis. A walking distance to Plaka, the old part of Athens, is also convenient. The style of the hotel is classic, so not for those looking for something hip and modern. The roof top restaurant offers a decent menu with quite expensive prices, however the view of the temple of Zeus and Acropolis especially at night make it worth spending money there at least for drinks. The hotel has a swimming pool area, which can be quite crowded, but usually not so much in the mornings.

close to many attractions, the hotel is right behind the Temple of Zeus. In the rest/bar in the roof top the view of the Acropolis is amazing. Also walking distance to the Plaka. And lots of restaurants around it. The hotel is fascinating. My room was great, very comfortable, plenty of room. The Pool area is not as big as you would like but it does its job pretty well. The View from our room was to the Temple of Zeus. The Room and hotel was extremely clean, well preserved and cared for. Although in front to a busy street, the rooms are very quiet.

"Gorgeous Accommodations in the Heart of Athens"
This Hotel is GORGEOUS! Me and my friends spent 10 days abroad touring Turkey and Greece and this was by far the nicest place we stayed in. The rooms are cleanest I have seen in eastern Europe. The lobby is beautiful. The pool is also gorgeous but they have limited lounge space so if you want a chair you'll have to get there early. They have a rooftop lounge and dining area which you have to check out even if it is only for a minute to take a picture of the beautiful Parthenon and Temple of Zeus. The best part about this hotel is that it is walking distance to the major sites in Athens AKA the Parthenon, Temple of Zeus, Syntagma Square (shopping/ restaurant district) and the First Olympic Stadium. The convenience of this location cannot be beat! The only hic-up we had was that I booked a "double room" which is meant for 2 people, where as the description/ picture I saw when I was booking was of 2 double beds (which would have been perfect for me and my 2 friends.) but when I got to reception they were going to charge me 50 extra euros to put a cot in the room - luckily the receptionist worked it out and got us a king bed for no extra money and we were so tired we didn't care at that point and slept comfortably.
