The royal Olympic hotel does not disappoint. Our second visit was just as nice as the first. We were upgraded room wise to a room with a view of the Olympian Zeus temple. They also serve a lovely breakfast upstairs where the terrace has one of the best views of the Acropolis. The hotel is clean and the staff very...

Their claim of being a 5 star hotel needs a lot of hard work to be put in. Best feature is their central and convenient location. The rooftop restaurant has amazing views of the Parthenon and the Temple of Zeus. Room for improvement - Acoustics are bad the rooms are far from being soundproof. They need to relook in their...

An above average clean hotel with a great location! In Athens you will probably only sleep in the hotel so location is extremely important. The hotel has a great location and is quite cheap for what it offers.

considering that it is in Greece and everything is quite cheap there, I have been left disappointed with the room simplicity and the reception impolite service. In the room, the bathroom was quite simple, the bath was not p to standards for a 5-star hotel and there was not a key to lock the bathroom door. The frontman at the...

This hotel is beautiful. The room was fantastic with amazing views. The location is perfect too in a very central part of the city. All of the staff were lovely and friendly. The bar on the top floor offers fantastic views across the city. Highly recommended.

The room was a good size, the breakfast was very good and the rooftop restaurant where it was served had brilliant views of the Acropolis. However I would not class this as 5 star. The bathroom was old and the toilet flush sounded like an airplane coming in to land. Our neighbors flushing in the night woke us twice. We...

This hotel is lovely. Staff are really friendly and rooms are a good size. We stayed for 3 nights on a weekend break and the location was ideal. It is easy walking distance to all local attractions. The hotel staff gave us great recommendations for local food. Big breakfast selection. Highly recommend this hotel in winter and summer.

Arrived in Athens and stayed at the lovely Hotel Olympic. The roof top restaurant served an excellent breakfast with breath-taking views of the Parthenon, especially at night. It was easy walking distance to The Plaka, the shopping and dining mecca of Athens. With curving cobblestone streets and quaint shops and restaurants, it was easy to spend hours perusing well-priced goods...
