While the rooms, facilities, and location are very nice, the hotel comes across as rather cold and characterless. The service was perfunctory at best and our one meal (breakfast) was poor. The property seems geared to the large tour group and is not concerned with amenities that others in this price point offer.

The best part of this hotel is the lobby and the rooftop view, but the buffet breakfast is quite disappointing considering the apparent luxury. The breakfast maître d is rude, and don't have the scrambled eggs unless you enjoy the texture of powder. The rooms are small, the air conditioning doesn't work, the walls are thin and you can hear...

This Hotel is 300m (5 mins walk) from Acropolis Metro Station... It's an excellent location, close to the Acropolis and the Museum. One can reach the Hotel conveniently from the Airport by the Metro with one change over at Syntagma Square station (just 1 stop away). Clean & spacious room with complimentary wifi ! Courteous house keeping staff. Grand breakfast...

This central location has great views of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus from the rooftop restaurant and terrace. A drop off & collection point is directly outside and you will be assisted with your bags. It is a short flat walk to a mini mart and other restaurants & attractions.

This hotel was beautiful. We absolutely loved the room we were given. It was so clean, spacious and fancy! The views and the service we received was impeccable. The breakfast had endless choices and such beautiful views. The only thing that could be improved was the services around the pool area. I thought the staff would could offer a towel...

The location is good and we had an extremely spacious room with a fantastic view. The hotel should have been much better but it lacked charm and vibrancy. While it looked like a five star property it felt and acted like a convention hotel. The little things matter and sadly the Royal Olympic did not deliver. No one greeted us...

Arriving at this hotel after a long long flight is like discovering an oasis in the desert! It looks absolutely beautiful and the service was very good.
