Score from 856 reviews Very good
We had an awesome view of the Temple to Zeus from our window every morning and even though we were on the first floor there was no street noise. Location location location. I couldn't have asked for better. All the attractions of Athens were walking distance from the Royal Olympic. The daily breakfast was superb with great quality and impeccable service and the view of the Parthenon was breathtaking.
There was nothing I didn't like about the Royal Olympic
the distance to syntagma
The beds and the food
In Athens Acropolis charming eternity of gods temples, royal sixteen ray Sun and man's best way to conquer knowledge and wisdom in the holy wind whisper of Alexandros'desire for culture koine. Merci beaucoup Royal Olympic Hotel. Alexandra d'Epiro Dusmet de Beaulieu A
Concierge friendly and competent The Library Room Pool area
Front desk staff unprofessional/need training how to treat guests and greet them especially! We were upgraded to an old Superior room instead of Executive pool view that was originally booked. It was noisy , road side and only one curtain drape. Complained and was given the only twin executive pool view available instead of double that was originally booked, told they were booked out from Marathon. No a/c so room was hot, was told it doesn't get turned on Autumn & Winter No irons, told would have to pay for a service No jug for tea/ coffee and don 't supply them Flat pillows Very tired and worn out rooms No pay TV, was told it wasn't working and wouldn't be fixed. Worm in the OJ but when told the manager he didn't remove the juice! We stayed at much better quality hotels for cheaper rates through out our trip. My advise , avoid this hotel there are many others in Athens that will be happy to greet you and obliging!!! This is a 2-3 star rating not a 4 star !
Location reception area
Rooms are a bit small, breakfast for a 4 star and not for 5, but the worst for me was that the staff in the bar and in the restaurant were unfriendly and very unconcerned!
The breakfast is very good(many choices). The view of the dinning hall is wonderful. 3-5 minutes walk to subway and Acropolis.
On our last day we asked the concierge for a TAXI to the airport. Apparently he called one of his "friends" that set us up with a very poor car, and he overcharged us as the taxi driver claimed there is a fix rate to the airport (although the meter was running) and these was a 5 euro surcharge for ordering a taxi by phone. I am sure that the concierge was involved in the "deal" because when we ordered the taxi he jumped calling this taxi from his mobile phone. Hate to feel been " raped"
Pleasant temperature to sit and enjoy the floodlit ruins of the Parthenon and other ancient monuments.
Cost of food on the menu in this restaurant meant we only dined there once.
the location and service. Friendly staff
towels and pillows need to be replaced
It is very well situated next to Temple of Zeus and on the edge of the Monasterakis district with it's windy streets, souvenir shops and restaurants with views of Acropolis. Beautiful hotel too, very comfortable. Would stay here again.
Breakfast was ok, would have like more fresh fruit and stronger coffee!
Good location Great view from the rooftop terrace
Great location with a fantastic view ! Breakfast was a treat up on the rooftop !
Bed was hard and need more pillows !
Location Roof Top Bar and its Staff Doorman
1. Room - dark 2. Room Lobby had no lighting as an oversized wardrobe "hid" the wall light. 3. No room service on one day. 4. Towels taken away but not replaced. 5. Corridor carpet rucked and threadbare 6. Breakfast a disorganised lottery 7. Front Desk staff - sullen 8. No one asked after paying the bill - did you enjoy your stay. 9. Felt like a back of house guest.
Rooftop Restaurant with great views Excellent breakfast buffet Friendliness & helpfulness of staff Ease of getting to Acropolis area & Hop -on-hop-off bustop
Hotel, room and location were all excellent! Staff was very couriuos and helpful. Hotel is within 1 a 2 km of most landmarks. May have been lucky, but the weather was excellent (sunny, slight breeze, 68 F).
Room was a little bit warm and couldn't get it cooled down (visit was in November). Made sleeping uncomfortable, but not impossible.
Views from roof garden
The old part of the hotel is really 2 star but you still get charged for 5star. Only filter coffee or instant at breakfast. Room cleanliness poor. Bathroom small and from the fifties. Old dusty and ugly flowers out side our room. Cheap toiletries. Housekeeping rude and lacking in training
The location close to the Plaka. Also close to acropolis
The room was very warm could not sleep Lots of Mosquitos and had many bites Would never go back!
The website looked wonderful. The location was excellent. The reception and facilities looked fabulous.
Our room was pathetic. One of our children was in a room with no windows & no light. If we left the window in the other room open we were attacked by mosquitoes which was a difficult decision as the air con didn't work properly. The sheets didn't fit the beds. Our "queen" bed was actually two singles shoved together - no chance for intimacy. I wrote a long complaint letter and no-one responded to it. Would never recommend it and would never stay there again.
Location.Views from the bar.Value for money for 4 nights.
No turn down,slippers,shower gown,tea/coffee in room,worn look to room.Breakfast-no tea/ coffee service.Lounge bar closed at 6.30pm and guests who had just returned from a trip were told 'go up to the roof top bar'.4 STAR AT BEST.Shops closed/empty in reception. We had an executive room-disappointed.
The hotel was in an excellent location and within walking distance of many of the sites - The Acropolis, The New Acropolis Museum, The Temple of Zeus for example. The roof top restaurant was fabulous and the views of these sites were like a film scene- a wonderful panoramic image of Athens. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast was of a good standard.
The view from our room was very disappointing - it looked out onto a wall and if you stretched your neck you could see the swimming pool below. I asked for a Temple view but the receptionist said that they were reserved for the junior suite rooms, contrary to what I had led to believe. I was also not happy that there were hairs left in the bath before I had a shower.
Very narrow bath with a shower attachment. It was dangerous to shower in it and, unless you were a size 10 or less, very difficult to bath. For this reason, we would not go back there unless we were assured that this problem has been rectified.
Perfect hotel, excellent, friendly staff
