Paradoxically the hotel seems under-dimensioned for the actual volume of guests: The elevators are small, so expect long waits and crowded rides. The breastfast restaurant is overly...More

The Royal Olympic is a newly fully refurbished 5* hotel located just in the centre of Athens, at a walking distance from all major archaeological sites, points of interest and public transports of the city, ...More and within easy reach to/from the airport. The 264 rooms, and especially the unique Athenian Panorama rooms with a breathtaking view over the temple of Zeus and other major sites of the city, the 18 state of the art meeting rooms, the roof garden restaurant & bar lying in front of the Acropolis, temple of Zeus and Lycabettus Hill, the swimming pool, create a luxurious and warm environment where personal touch, service and attention to every single detail are very well looked after.Should it be for leisure, corporate or MICE travelers, the Royal Olympic offers a unique and authentic Athenian experience that will remain unforgettable to each guest.

Sorry, I didn’t see this. Yes it’s that deep . It opens at 9:30am , not sure when it closes. The Europeans like to stare, my daughter felt uncomfortable. We only swam when there wasn’t too many people.
