Beautiful lobby in this hotel. Our room had a view over the pool but it was nice and quiet. Beds were comfortable as were the pillows. GREAT breakfast on the rooftop with superb views. VERY POOR internet connectivity in our room. Had to go to the lobby to connect. Staff were helpful and courteous. Rooms are getting dated and need...

The Royal Olympic is in a great location - 5 minutes' walk from the Plaka and the entrance to the Acropolis. We found we could reasonably walk just about everywhere we wanted to go from the hotel - pretty much all the major landmarks and points of interest are within walking distance. There are stunning (almost surreally beautiful) views of...

Stayed here over the weekend on our travel through greek. Had a room with the view on the historic temple of Zeus. The view from the room was amazing. To wake up and go to bed with so much history was cool. The price was definitely worth it. Also check out the roof top terrace!!! Pool was also nice, only...

This is about the 5th-6th time I have stayed here, but the first time in peak summer season. It is a very nice hotel, well located 5 mins from the Acropolis museum and another minute or two round to the entrance to the Acropolis. Maybe 15 min to Plaka or Constitution Square. Well appointed rooms but a quibble about the...

We stayed on two occasions at this hotel, after the first stay we had to come back for more. The staff were excellent and very friendly and knowledgeable, our room had the biggest bed I have ever had in a hotel and comfy too! Our room also had the pool view which I liked.

This hotel has a central location and a great view from the rooftop restaurant, which served a good buffet breakfast (though the servers were downright rude). But there were a number of inconveniences. - the rooms are small and the decorations are dated. Carpet in the hallway seemed to be peeling off the floor. - the beds were not very...

For a visit to Athens this is the must stay place. From our bedroom we could see both The Acropolis and The Temple of Zeus. Expensive to eat on the open area on the top floor but the views and lighting are worth it for a once in a lifetime meal. Food quality was very good but still expensive taking...

Not the best start to a month long holiday. We used this as a base hotel mainly for the pool. We booked an executive room which should be a view of the pool. Hmm not sure why I'm looking at the Ducati shop and a very grubby side street and the tram. Lobby is very beautiful and the view from...

This place was awesome. I'm not so sure I like how much it cost, and I'm not sure how much all of the other hotels go for, but aside from that, it was awesome. If you want to pay the money, this is a great place to do it. The pool was awesome, so was the bar and the food....

We stayed here for 5 nights during our honeymoon. For the price we paid ($150aud) for our room we really weren't expecting too much. Our room was in what seemed like an older building in the hotel. But overall our room was ok and we had a comfortable stay. The lobby, pool and rooftop bar are of 5 star standards....
