The location of the hotel is perfect for visiting the sites, all in walking distance. Room is fine, nothing special, however there is no coffee/tea facility and no ironing table/iron which i needed for my shirts.

Great location many of the sights and restaurants in walking distance. Very helpful door staff always willing to give directions and recommendations. The restaurant has an amazing view and great food. Rooms are standard for this price bracket. Very good wifi strength.

Great location. A few minutes walk from major sights such as the Acropolis and museum. Wonderful buffet breakfast, slightly chaotic trying to locate a table but sorted quickly by attentive staff. Great views from the roof top breakfast in the morning which was even more spectacular in the evening at the bar. My only criticism is that the hotel allows... More

Hotel have a very intelligent location in Athens; you may go on foot for many sights around and enjoy walking. Hotel roof garden have a direct view to acropolis museum; you may have your coffee while looking to this amazing view. Staff is very co-operative and nice. Food is fine; but most of it not consider Islamic rules where most... More

We just returned from our trip to Istanbul, 7 day cruise of the Greek Isle and a two day stay at the Royal Olympic Hotel in Athens. We found this hotel to be first class, the staff friendly and helpful, our room was large, clean and a nice wall mounted picture frame TV. A dinner in the rooftop resturant is... More

The hotel itself is superbly positioned, rooms themselves are comfortable and cooled appropriately (albeit with noisy plumbing). Facilities good only downside is the price for the roof bar/food/extras

Our experience was that this was an overall a very good hotel. The roof top terrace breakfast room is lovely and definitely a big plus for the hotel. There is a very good choice of food and then sitting in the sunshine eating your breakfast while admiring the wonderful view over Athens, directly opposite the Temple of Zeus and with... More

This hotel is in a wonderful location with walking distance to great shopping and easy access to tourist attractions. The rooftop view is breathtaking. That said, the rooms are old, gross, and moldy. The beds are uncomfortable, the TV is from 1995. The service is poor, the employees are rude. The hotel charges for everything. They charged me six euros... More

Staff quickly accommodated us after loosing a precious item which was finally found. Man at the desk was professional, doorman friendly so was the staff in general. Room @ bathroom top ! I would recommend a 2 night stay, price is significant but worth it!

Royal Olympic Hotel offers excellent location - right next to Temple of Zeus, only a short stroll away from Acropolis Museum. It was a massive bonus for us since we did not have to spend any extra monies on public transport and/or taxis. Had we paid rack rate, we would not have been entirely happy with this hotel. However, we... More
