Royal Olympic’s central-Athens location places it within walking distance to all major attractions – Temple of Olympion Zeus is just opposite the hotel, the Acropolis and the Pantheon are both five minutes walk, while the National Archeological Museum is simply 45 minute walk from Syntagma. No matter how you feel about fish, meat and vegetables you won't find a livelier place than the Central market on Athinas Street. And if that is not enough the Market is also the beginning of Athens Chinatown and Eolou Street, the pedestrian shopping district. More active guests can take a walk to the Monastiraki Flea Market.

  • Perfect position great view and most attractions in walking distance. Beautiful stay in Athens and good price. Lovely lobby and friendly staff. I liked the rooms and clean sheets.

    Pool area is a little small and the hotel is nice. The bathroom had no counter space and the door had to be closed in order to use the toilet, the breakfast can only be described as unimpressive.

  • Perfect location in Athens and just blocks from the Plaka. Hotel staff are friendly and the lobby is fantastic and the inclusive breakfast excellent. The room are spacious, the Library is a very nice touch THE PRICE OF A CUP OF COFFEE IS REDICULOUS and the pool is lovely.

    Great views disappointing service, overall 's not worth paying that much money and personnel awful. Bathrooms are not well stocked, minibar drink are far more than expensive and the facility is unimpressive and even tacky.

  • The views were fantastic and gym was disappointing as I had to go outside the hotel. The lobby was impressive and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was perfect and sandwiches served at the pool bar were decent.

    The breakfast area was very crowded and toilet paper was of poor quality and fell. Wow, prices were absolutely ridiculous, reception was unfriendly and the lady receptionist was not very nice. Bed was a little uncomfortable and at 10o clock we waited at least 30 mins to order and the food was quite expensive.
