A hotel that is a little past its best but not without its charms. The rooms were a bit tattered - we had a large mark on one carpet - and the interconnecting room situation was unique in that it required access from a mutual vestibule with one locking door. However, I really loved the breakfast restaurant. An unbelievable view...

The only thing positive in this hotel is the location, all the rest is just terrible. The entrance is nice and looks luxurious but it is only a cover for a really bad hotel. The rooms are not particularly clean and really need a refurbishing. The rooms are very dark and could use some lamps. In addition if you need...

When you first get there , the hotel looks impressive,however after you get inside you see how much of an update it needs. The beds are horrible (we stayed at the panoramic view) I thought we'll be getting one big bed instead my boyfriend and I end up with two twin beds. Not iron in the room or anywhere in...

nice location, walking distance to all of the attractions. Easy access to the hop on/hop off bus, they upgraded us to a Jr. suite since we had out 15 year with us. The room was large, spacious, although our view of the pool, it was still nice. The breakfast was included and my husband took advantage of that feature --...

The Royal Olympic was a nice surprise. Not five star rooms, but a solid four. The location is minutes from the Acropoli subway, and the views from the roof are breathtaking. The best thing about the hotel is the breakfast - the best I've ever had! The rooms are clean, a bit tired, but cozy and well-sized, nonetheless. The lobby...

Roof restaurant was a complete ripoff- advice to travelers who book this hotel next year: stay away from the so called 'gala dinner' at the rooftop resto.. Drinks not included- menu served cold and after it's too late

This is my second time that I stay to this hotel. Royal Olympic is in the heart of the city, a walking distance to Acropoli, Plaka and to the other Athens attractions. Breakfast is on the roof overlooking the Temple of Zeus and Acropolis. The staff is friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy room with balcony.

A quite superb hotel situated directly facing the Temple of Zeus with the Acropolis to the left and St George's Hotel atop a hill to the right. The restaurant is stunning as it has panoramic views of the above mentioned from its seventh floor location. The rooms are more than adequate with the bed sizes rivalling and often beating the...

Amenities are few including no indoor pool. The rooms were like sauna - had to leave windows half open to be able to sleep. Asked for a small table fan but hotel was not able to locate even one.
