The hotel is good enough, but there is no bottled water in the rooms. One should buy it in the bar or in the nearest shop. A marvelous view from the restaurant. The biggest minus- cockroaches in the room! Luckily, we noticed them only on the day of leave, but still this spoiled our mood a lot. The management should...

This is not a 5 star hotel, although for this price it shouldn't be expected. The location is its main selling point, close to the Parthenon and walkable distance to the touristy centre with restaurants and cafes. Okay rooms and bathrooms, there is also a pool available.

On our last day in Athens, we stayed at an elegant hotel called “Royal Olympic”. A copy of the “Charioteer” of Delphi stared at the tourist in the lobby. It looked like the original in the Delphi Museum. We had a suite of room that made you want to stay indoors. Oil paintings of Greece adorned the halls. The big...

My room facing Temple of Olympian what a spectacular view day & night you stay for hours staring from the. My room was spacious a bit old fashioned but had all essentials. The...

We visited Athens and stayed at this hotel. We were given an up-grade upon arrival. The room was absolutely gorgeous with a view on the temple of Zeus. The bed was extremely comfortable, huge marble bathroom with wonderful towels, bathrobes and very quiet to sleep. The delicious breakfast was served on the rooftop with an amazing view of the Acropolis....

It's a nice hotel, good location, comfortable rooms; however, despite the lobby, restaurant, and other public areas be luxurious, the rooms are lacking the 5-star factor. This is an average hotel, 3 stars MAX. It desperately needs a full renovation in the rooms and hotel amenities. Breakfast buffet is alright, nothing special. Staff is friendly and helpful. We had to...
