Great location, not enough to make up for staff

Hotel (lobby) is beautiful, but that's really where the 5 star experience ends. Front desk staff are sarcastic, impatient, demeaning and all around rude. Room quality is average with very poor quality linens. There is no air conditioning except for the couple months they've decided it's hot enough. If you happen on Athens the rest of the year when it's easily >25 c then you'll be very uncomfortable. The taxi service is a scam even from the hotel-mostly based around friends of the staff. The view from the restaurant is great and the breakfast is good and definitely adds to the value of the stay. If you're looking for true quality, not recommended. Try grand Bretagne

Loved, loved, this hotel. After reading reviews on this hotel I decided to book. It's directly across from the Temple of Zeus and walking distance to everything. Tour company next door and hotel staff very helpful in booking the tours for you. The rooftop restaurant and the view was amazing. The food was great and so were the waiters. The daily breakfast was outstanding. The feta cheese and Greek yogurt were "like butter" best ever. I ate this every morning. Our room had a balcony and overlooked the pool.

Beautiful hotel in a great location

The lobby, pool, and bar are stunning. The rooftop restaurant, where an excellent breakfast buffet is served, is also stunning and provides great views of the Temple of Olympian Zeus and the Acropolis. Between the first floor and the roof, the standard rooms are less impressive: clean and nicely decorated but a bit small. The location is a short walk from the Acropolis Museum and slightly longer walks to Syntagma Square and Plaka.

Just ok

Staff are good, but just for 7 days we stayed in a hotel, the breakfast is always the same. The plus factors are walking distance to the shops and some historical places. The hotel is just ok.

Athens is beautiful in the winter

Royal Olympic was more then willing to help with anything we needed during our stay. Bars and clubs being open till past sunrise was quite enjoyable.

Great Location, Walk to Famous Sights

Walking distance to all the ancient sightseeing spots in Athens. We did not bring any backpack, 'cause we can just walk back to hotel, if we missed something in our room. The staffs in this hotel are responsible and honest. My wife found she lost 300 Euro cash (one 200 Euro & one 100 Euro, we paid toll fee on the highway), while she could not remember when and where. We did not take time to look for the cash because these papers look same, and no one will be able to identify the ownership. When we walked back to our room in the late afternoon from , the phone rings in our room. It is from the video security room, inquiring if we have lost anything. I am hestated to tell them "cash", because I feel a little bit shame to tell the others lost of cash. The staff asked me to wait a few minutes for them to check in the video. Only half minute later, they called me again. This time is the owner of the hotel. He certified the amount and pieces wth me and tole me they found the cash beside my car in the hotel underground parking lot. By checking the video record, they identified the belongings. Thanks to their effots. The location was perfect. Returning the lost cashes that we did not expect to find is another pleasant experience in our trip.

Great Hotel close to Acropolis

This hotel was excellent. We only stayed for one night and only to see the Acropolis. The hotel was about 30 minutes from the airport and was a very nice hotel. It was beautiful and even had a swimming pool. There is a great rooftop bar and restaurant with an awesome view of the Acropolis, which is only about a ten minute walk. Our room was very large, clean, and comfortable. They even had a U.S. style outlet to plug in any appliances you might need. I would recommend this hotel. It is also close to Plaka where there are many shops and Greek restaurants.

Great location / Great views

Spent 2 days here staying in an Executive room with breakfast in the roof top restaurant . The location of the hotel is perfect very close to the tube and easy walking distance to the tourist area of acropolis and surrounding cafes. Breakfast in the roof top restaurant is well worth it large choice of food and the best views possible, also recommend a visit to the roof bar at night remember to take your camera. Room was very clean, good A/C and a view over the pool.
