Just returned from a 4-night stay (19th to 23rd June) and had a great time. The location is outstanding with amazing views of the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. The hotel is within 10 minute walk to excellent restaurants and bars as well as most of the historical spots.The staff were very friendly throughout and cannot fault them on... More

The hotel has ideal central location with great view of the historical temple of Zeus and Acropolice. The staff is helpful and courteous but the hotel lacks basic facilities. No tea or coffee making facility. No proper toiletries in the room. No drinking water . Everything is high priced, pool location and facilities are sub standard. One of the worst... More

The views from the hotel rooms and especially from the roof top restaurant are amazing of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. The hotel staff are very professional and helpful. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very clean. The hall carpets need to be replaced but otherwise an excellent hotel to stay in Athens. Close to all historic sites and... More

Currently staying at this hotel. Three nights here before leaving Greece after a 3 week visit. I've been to Santorini, Mykonos, Fiskardo, Pyrgos and Rome during my trip and encountered the most wonderful people and hospitality. My husband is a Greek Citizen and this hotel gives Greeks a bad name! The staff seems to be under a directive of some... More

First experience was 3 phone calls and an email to hotel to arrange a taxi pick up from airport. Guess what, no taxi. Then went to pool which was smaller than expected. There was no Sun as pool area is surrounded by 3 high buildings. Male and female staff members too busy flirting to get me a towel, quite rude.... More

I stayed here with my husband and two friends at the beginning of May. Our room was one of the Athenian Panorama Suites at the front of the hotel overlooking the road with views towards the Parthenon. Super room, comfortable bed, and absolutely no traffic noise. The restaurant was very good, again the open air part had superb views towards... More

This hotel is fantastic being very close to Plaka, the Acropolis and the museum and across the road from the temple of Zeus. There is a great roof top restaurant where breakfast is served whilst enjoying amazing views. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble, would definitely stay here again next time I come back to Athens. Just... More

We stayed 3 nights in Athens at the grande Bretagne, hotel staff and experience was top notch. We stayed in Mykonos and Santorini, then had one night left back in Athens in which we stayed at Royal Olympic. Reviews seems good online, not sure how many are made up or paid for. Upon arrival staff was not friendly or warm,... More

We stayed at The Royal Olympic for three nights as part of our Athens & The Greek Isles Tour. I am sure as a group we didn't get any of the real posh rooms, but there were no complaints from anyone in my group of 65 travelers. The breakfast was phenomenal and the view of the Parthenon from the rooftop... More
