A short walk from the Acropolis, 5-star Royal Olympic Hotel is centrally located near the picturesque Plaka neighborhood. The luxurious rooms overlook Zeus’s Temple, or the swimming pool garden.

Location, beautiful public areas
Restaurant not as good as before
excellent location, lovely bedrooms.
Everything is excellent The best place to stay in Plaka.
Friendly staff, nice size rooms and good facilities
Bathrooms are a little tired!
Great view from roof bar, able to stil by pool at night with a glass of wine and admire Acropolis before going out to explore the streets and find dinner.
Great view from the swimming pool/restaurant area. Really pretty. Great location
Tired in places I had a couple of absolutely rubbish massages. The spa area is not exactly the a luxurious haven you would expect from a 5 star hotel. Breakfast not great
spacious lobby; garden area
room furnishings mediocre; room overlooked balconies of other rooms
Great service, beautiful layout, comfortable bed, bedding and pillows; fantastic view of the Acropolis from the lovely balcony; fantastic breakfast
We loved the pool, the view to the Parthenon, the ease of walking to shops and restaurants
the place was lovely, good location, clean, the view from the roof bar was fantastic at sunset. We had dinner on the first night in the hotel roof top restaurant and it was very yummy. Breakfast was nice and fresh every morning. I would return to this hotel.
Outdoor swimming pool with view of Acropolis. Restaurant with inside and outside dining, again with view of the Acropolis. Free wifi throughout the hotel. Location - within easy walking distance of all the main tourist sites. First class service.
breakfast buffet location view of acropolis from roof top restaurant
staff, breakfast, cleanliness
Small rooms, narrow beds, non-adjustable thermostat
Rooftop and location. Nicely appointed lobby. Free WiFi in room.
Front desk willing to please but defensive if a problem arises. Service spotty and inconsistent. Staff seemed tired.
Breakfast, location, lobby
Great location in the Plaka. Fabulous views of Acropolis from pool and restaurant. Upgrade to a good sized room with all ammenities and comfort.
Nutritious breakfast; convenient location, walking distance to all the scenic spots in athens; helpful staff!
Position very central
Rooms although clean were small & basic view overlooked apartments & offices
Location was excellent; easy walk to all the main attractions and eating.
Staff was unfriendly. No one was rude, but I think they must train their people not to smile. Perhaps it was a language or cultural thing (several could not speak fluent English), or perhaps they are just burned out from the constant contact with tourists.
Location Excellent breakfast Quality of bedroom Rooftop pool and bar Helpful front desk
Noisy machinery at back of hotel Traffic jams in front of hotel for parts of day, especially around mid day
This is a great place to stay in Athens: superb location and services. The staff are incredibly helpful and the views from the rooftop restaurant and the pool are to die for.
View sit at pool and many rooms view Acropolis. Breakfast is wonderful. Staff speaks English well. Computers with wifi and printers complimentary.
Liked everything not a single negative
Electra Palace is ideally located, beautifully maintained, and worth the prices. Our room was charming, clean, with outstanding amenities. Housekeeping was excellent and the staff was professional. The view on the top floor can't be beat. Breakfasts out on the intimate courtyard were delicious! This is a fabulous hotel.
I would have loved to have had a gym available to me. I would also like to have seen larger, softer bath towels, as I have enjoyed elsewhere. Not much else to complain about.
Friendly, courteous, clean, attentive. Our first room had a bad odor which the staff picked up on immediately and quickly got us into another room which they upgraded because they felt badly.
Location, great buffet breakfast, friendly and clean atmosphere, the view from the pool.
