First of all I'm shocked that when I looked into this hotel prior to our trip, it had 4 stars! The only thing worth of 4 stars is the food they serve on the 7th floor overlooking ancient ruins ( which good food is not hard to find anywhere in Greece and a lot cheaper at that!)and the proximity to...

Good hotel, great decor, good location with the Acropolis a 10 min. walk away and good underground links. Plus the big attraction seems to be the view of the acropolis and temple of Zeus from the rooftop restaurant. Has an indoor swimming pool, did not get to use it but looked occupied through the day. The hotel does have some...

We were in Athens for two nights before traveling around Greece. This hotel was ideal. It's in a perfect location- just a short walk to the Acropolis and Plaka district. The pool is very nice, though it gets crowded in mid-afternoon. We did not have a great view, but the room was very nice and the much needed air-conditioning worked...

We stayed for two nights during August at Royal Olympic and over all a disappointing stay. The pool area is nice and the roof top is impressive but I would recommend staying elsewhere in Athens. The WIFI was poor and the air conditioning in our room didn't work. Whilst we complained about the aircon they offered us another room but...

Breakfast is rich but the dishes and cups smell very bad , also overcrowded we spent waiting half an hour so they find us a table. In rooms they offer you limited number of towels and they did not even change the used ones . The shampoo and conditioner were used and they did not renew them . The AC...

Definitely request a room with a view, it is stunning. Excellent hotel tastefully decorated and all of the comforts you would dream for. I particularly liked the labelled light switches beside the bed - I can't believe more hotels don't have this. Excellent. Make sure you do breakfast or evening drinks on the terrace, stunning!

Highly overrated as a 5 star. Dining staff were unfriendly and reception staff were unaccommodating on a room request made 2 months prior to arrival. The excuse was that all rooms with a view were smoking and as. Was pregnant it would not be suitable(!!?) Could also only recommend their (overpriced) transport and dining. Good rooftop view for sundowners but...

We stayed here for one night on our way home before our noon flight. The staff was very nice and helpful and even gave us a complimentary upgrade! The room we ended up with with quite lavish, particularly for a european hotel which are typically quite small. We had a great view of Zeus' Temple across the street. The hotel...

The hotel itself is in a convenient location which is pretty much the only reason its still in operation. The Front desk staff need to remember their actually at work. Their attitude was one of general distain for guests. It was an effort for them to look up from the desk when you stood in front of them. The views...

Yes, we had an amazing view of the Acropolis and the rooftop dining at sunset was spectacular, however the "amazing" part ends there. The hotel rooms (we rented three) all smelled of sewage, we could not cool the rooms enough to sleep in, we were not able to get face cloths or enough towels for our bathrooms, the service was...
