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 2141 reviews Very good
The breakfast was fantastic and the staff would use this time to ask us if we needed any assistance with our plans, which was a great time saver. Overall very professional experience.
A great position to explore a lovely part of the Plaka area of Athens
Good location. Quiet rooms. Friendly & helpful staff. Good breakfast. Clean.
We only stayed 1 night, to have a quick tour of Athens. Staff very helpful, comfortable beds, clean, nice balcony & great location.
Breakfast not convincing, furniture will have to be upgraded shortly.
Great staff, great breakfast. They were very caring with us and allowed a late check out when we really needed. The hostess is really helpful and location is very good!
The triple room is a bit small and double bed is two single beds with separated sheets, I didn't think it was a problem until I got there. The mattress separates all the time and you end with a role in the middle. The room was a bit noisy in the second floor.
great location, extremely helpful staff, and a very nice breakfast.
The location, staff and amenities were very nice. They also had free wifi, water, coffee and cookies available in the lobby until late afternoon. The included breakfast was also quite nice.
The elevator is extremely small and can only accommodat two people with small to medium luggage.
Very well located near Plaka, air conditioning, breakfast ok
Price a bit high but this is Athens....
-nice, helpful staff -good breakfast -good location
location quality of service friendly and helpful staff competitive rate
Location, near Syntagma Square.
Wi fi non existent in room, ok in lobby. Dated hotel, needs upgrading. Shower leaking, also needed maintenance for noisy fan in bathroom. No tea, coffee making facilities in room.
The location was great, staff helpful. The lady at breakfast helped a lot with the day's plans. Wifi reception was good in the room.
-the breakfast hall was very small and crowded. We could not get a table on the first day and had to sit in the lobby. -the room was a bit small and dated for the price and the hotel rating
Clean and functional hotel with good breakfasts
Bathroom was a bit on the small size
Nothing to fault
location, breakfast, clean, staff
The laundry facilities are cheap and very efficient The location is great and they let you go to the sister hotel. The hotel staff at plaka hotel seemed friendlier Good posters up which show places to go and where is free during the week
The street that you walk down from mitropoleous? Is a bit dodgy and if I was alone as a female would not feel safe. The other streets around seemed fine and street the hotel was on was nice. The reception staff were luke warm and not the friendliest and not very helpful with things to do in the area
Great location, perfect for a stop over or a couple nights stay, staff were really good, walking distance to plaka and shopping, breakfast was Lovely
Considering you were right in the hear of Athens this hotel was just fine
Professionalism of staff, quality of breakfast buffet. Location could not be better, everything within walking distance. Room was clean and comfortable with a nice balcony that overlooked the streets. Wifi signal strong.
We had a leaky air-con for the first night, but that was attended to immediately and fixed the next morning
Location was very good. Close to main square and metro stop. East to find even though it's off the main street. Hotel has a roof top view of the Acropolis at night but it's partially blocked. It's sister hotel down the street has a much better view of the Acropolis. Sitting up there at night was awesome! A/c worked great, which was wonderful after a long hot day in Athens!! Staff were very friendly and helpful!
Small rooms, small bathroom.
I was in Athens just for one night and needed a basic clean place to stay. Hermes is great value for money: clean modern rooms (i think recently renovated even), good wifi, good bathroom and shower. Location is excellent: in Plaka (the place to be for tourists). Breakfast starts very early (5am and maybe even earlier) for early checkout people: this is probably the first time i have ever seen this in a hotel Highly recommended for city trips etc. Will definitely go back to Hermes if i return to Athens
Nice hotel in the city centre. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff. Good WI-FI.
Nothing in particular.
+in the heart of athens(Plaka district) +underground private parking just 50m from Hermes entrence (Metropark Parking) additional 18€ per night +excellent breakfast +excellent wi-fi +small but nice roof terace with view of Acropolis +extra clean and very nice decoreted bathroom Tip:the best way to explore and visit the most important things in Athens is to take Sightseeing Bus tour which is 18Euro per person and the ticket is vaild for two days. Tip2: if it's possible don't visit Athens during the summer (extremly HOT)!
-old furniture in the lobby/room -old small TV set -view from the window is to the wall of the next building ( we have double economy room) -general friendly staff , except one person from front desk ( her name was Margarita ) -the hotel doesn't offer private parking which is very very important in city like Athens
The hotel is in a good location, the people are very friendly and the rooms are really comfortable.
This hotel was perfect for our first visit to Athens. Within walking distance of all the historical sights and some great shopping and eating. Staff were very helpful and friendly I would recommend a stay here
Wi Fi in rooms not too great but not a big deal.
