We arrived at the hotel after a very hot traipse through Athens and were so relieved to see two very smartly door staff hurry towards us and relieve us of our cases. That was the first of many good experiences at this hotel.
Our honeymoon was a stay in Athens followed by a flight to Istanbul and a further stay there. The Olympic was fantastic; extremely luxurious with a beautiful pool area and roof top bar/ restaurant with amazing views of Athens.
The breakfast was very varied and of a good quality, served over a long period. Our only criticism would be that it would be better to be able to serve yourself coffee.
The hotel was well sited, close to everything in a very safe feeling area.
Ok, the drinks and food were on the pricey side but in reality you are in a city and you are on holiday- everything is pricey. For a few euros more it is well worth it for the service, nothing was a problem, the environment and the location. Should we to go to Athens again we will definitely stay here again and would advise anyone else to do likewise.
