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.
Score from 2147 reviews Very good
This hotel has a prestigious location in the historic heart of Athens. It has 4-star facilities, excellent views of the Acropolis and Temple of Olympian Zeus, and fine cuisine.
Score from 686 reviews Excellent
In one of the most central locations in Athens, the Electra Hotel Athens is next to Syntagma Square. A 5-minute walk through charming Plaka takes you to the Acropolis.
Score from 565 reviews Very good
Centrally located in Syntagma Square in Athens, the Amalia Hotel is right across from the National Gardens. It features comfortable rooms with satellite and pay-per-view TV, and Wi-Fi internet access....
Score from 1719 reviews Excellent
The room was great, we got an upgrade to a suite and enjoyed the classic furniture with a great acropolis view. Service is prompt and quick.
Pool was pathetic, too small, restaurant by the pool is also small and not 5 star standards.
A pool in the centre of Athens is unheard of!! These guys have 2. So close to everything you won't a taxi or car!! Super clean super staff !! Will definetly stay here on our next trip
Decor was very stylish throughout Staff were very friendly and helpful Central location close to Acropolis Fantastic view of Acropolis at night
Location a little hard to find
Location, staff helpfulness and knowledge, comfort
breakfast preparation, sloooow elevator
Prompt service of staff, location, view of Acropolis in roof restaurant , shopping ,museum ,bus and Metro within short walk, outdoor and indoor swimming pools, breakfast, decoration in style,not many big big group of tourists stuffing the lobby and hallways....
half glass shower curtain easy to spill water, small area of vanity unit and wash basin, little table top area in toilet, hangers cannot detached from wardrobe, tea/coffee bags/sugar/creamer not refilled, NO complimentary bottle water in hot Athens ?
Breakfast great - waffles delicious. Service good too. Very central position to old Athens. Had a lovely time.
Would have liked a few more English speaking TV channels - bbc world isn't ideal all the time.
Beds we're amazing. So comfortable Hotel roof bar and restaurant spectacular !
The view of Acropolis from the rooftop swimming pool, the spa, the breakfast, the location, the facilities, the free wifi in the rooms...
The room for 3 people was a little bit small, and they just made the room like if it was just for 2 people (2 cups of coffee, 2 bathrobe,...)
Great location near the Plaka with plenty of shops, sights, restaurants. Roof top pool was good after a hot day sightseeing but it got busy. Having a swim looking at the Acropolis was memorable. Staff were so helpful - especially with a nice upgrade in room- thank you!
Close proximity to the city but within a quiet neighbourhood. Each morning we enjoyed an excellent buffet breakfast in the delightful garden.
Whilst most staff were very friendly and accommodating, a couple of the breakfast waiters could benefit from some customer service training.
Excellent staff - very friendly and helpful. Lovely hotel with very nice facilities and fantastic breakfast. Would definitely recommend
Location and view of the Acropolis from the hotel room balcony and pool is excellent. Roof top restaurant also excellent - one of the best vegetarian risottos I have eaten! The hotel is located with the Plaka area of Athens so there are lots of shops and restaurants with a couple of minutes walk. Hotel room very clean and the king size bed very comfortable, although the sofa bed was not - very hard according to our teenage daughter. Spa very small but the service excellent so booked a second back massage!
Spa - very small pool that tended to have kids in due to the intense temperature outside.
Electra Palace Hotel Athens proved to be in a very central location in Athens. The staff were very accomodating during our stay, including a late check out. Breakfast each morning was fantastic and overall we thoroughly enjoyed outr stay at this hotel.
Free upgrade to a suite on arrival. Perfect location. Gorgeous room with amazing view.
View of the Restaurant Pool Location
Huge bathroom, small bedroom
the location is perfect
the breakfast is too simple, and our rooms were without balcony, the swimming poor is too small
Everything except two things which i will write in the next box
1. the pool closes at 7! Honestly, this was a disappointment. No matter what the reasons behind that are, I think you should allow people to come back from their day trip and enjoy a nice evening by the pool facing the acropolis. This is one of the strong points about the hotel! 2. The wifi system first of all was only free in the lobby. it should be free everywhere as it is in all places in the world especially in hotels of this caliber. I should also say that the wifi system was not working properly as well ( even when you have paid for this service). it had a tendency to go and come back. This needs some attention.
Location is excellent, front desk staff very helpful and friendly, breakfast very good
The location was wonderful: quiet side street, easy to walk to sites, leafy garden where you could eat breakfast and lunch. We loved our room's balcony. The rooftop restaurant was excellent--our best meal in Athens with an incredible view of the Parthanon. And a cool dip in the rooftop pool was perfect after a morning sweltering on the Acropolis. The staff was helpful. The bathrooms were very nice.
Rooms were a little small and cramped
Breakfast was excellent, service and staff were excellent.
The smell of cigarette smoke in the corridor on the 7th floor.
The location,hospitality,nice staff,highly recommended ...;))
Amazingly friendly staff, fantastic location definetly coming back!!
Nothing everything was excellent
no free wifi in the room
Location is very central Rooms are spacious and clean Very friendly and professional staff Nice and clean pool at the roof top Fantastic restaurant "Roof Garden" at the roof top, outstanding Greek cuisine and nice staff with great service. Very friendly Barman (Menelaos). Highly recommended Hotel.
