This large, fully established hotel is a cool oasis in a hot city. Centrally located to all the historical sites it is very welcoming and efficient. The pool is so essential after trekking around the acropolis, Temple of Zeus (across the road), changing of the Guard (up the road) and street markets (down the road). The breakfast was good and included in our tariff. Large tour groups stay here so you could time your breakfast before or after the horde arrive at the breakfast room. We stayed for a further night after returning from the Greek Islands and were upgraded to an amazing room on the 6th floor (Room 601). Even a view from the shower/bath. It would be worth requesting this room - you will not be sorry. The view is breathtaking from the balcony, watch the sunset over the acropolis and see the monuments lit up at night. We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Olympic.
