    The location was perfect all the main sights were a short walk, also it was only a 30min journey to the port and to the airport. The concierge staff were very helpful.

    Breakfast was chaotic, not enough tables for the number of persons staying at the hotel, not enough staff to clear tables and replenish breakfast items. The reception staff were not very welcoming.

    Great view of parthenon from top restaurant.

    Asked desk person to print boarding passes because printer did not work in the business center. Person was very nice to have them in an envelope delivered to the room. We where five and go only two boarding passes got printed! You can imagine the havoc at the airport...

    Clean enough and comfortable. High score due to great location in the historical center of Athens.Normal rates for a 4 star hotel, nothing special. Good breakfast but I've seen better at this price.

    Parking is charged, they should find a way to avoid this. You come to Athens by car and for sure you do not use it to much when visiting the city but you stell need it for the rest of the trip.Then you pay for nothing an extra, 15 euro/day for hotel parking.

    Location is close to city centre. Spacious rooms. Hotel staff are friendly.

    We booked the 150 euros /day deluxe room w/o breakfast included by mistake. In the first place I wanted to book 160 euro with breakfast included. then I wanted to modify my booking to 160 Breakfast included. the hotel staff told us that it is quite impossible to modify the booking if it was done through Booked.net. they offered me 25 euro /person for breakfast which makes no sense. Instead of paying 10 euro / day extra, I was asked to pay additional 50 euro per person. anyways we did not buy the breakfast but we experiences the dinner at Ionnis Rest which was a disaster. At 10'o clock we waited at least 30 mins to order and the food was quite expensive.

    Superb

    Perfect location...only 100 meters to the Acropolis park entrance. Lots of nearby shopping, cafes and restaurants. Full equipped 5-star with major restaurant and a roof bar and grill, which over looks the city.

    Hotel parking attendent was very rude and and bossy. Hotel staff seem to be be a bit jaded by tourists, which is understandable given it's Athens.

    Royal Olympic is a great hotel. The location is excellent, everything is near: Akropolis, old town, Lycabettus hill, trams, metro, buses. We especially enjoyed the fantastic view and roof garden restaurant. The pool area is fairly small, but really classy. Hotel staff is professional, helpful and very friendly. Our room was nice and quiet, despite the heavy traffic.

    We booked a Deluxe room. The first room did not quite match the description on the web pages, it was far from being spacious, as was stated on the confirmation sheet. However, we only had to mention this to the staff and were moved to a much bigger room next day.
