Good location near Plaka district. Room was a good size however didn’t have any natural light. Breakfast was excellent with endless choices of food. A stunning view from the balcony of the ruins too. The staff were hit and miss, some were really friendly, others not at all. The gym is not what is advertised and is very basic with old equipment - enough to get in a workout however. Lovely looking hotel with great conference facilities.

The room given to us did not resemble the photos on their site! It was called an “ Internal” room , No Windows , No Ventilation , No Daylight whatsoever , this in a supposed 5 Star Hotel, a prison cell has better facilities , will never ever stay there or recommend this place to anyone!

Tired rooms put dampner on stay

The pool and lobby area and breakfast on the roof are all great, but the rooms are very tired and in need of some love especially given the price point. I enjoyed the little balcony however.

Fantastic view of the Acropolis

True luxury hotel, right in the middle of the attractions. 5 mins walk to the Acropolis museum and the Acropolis.

Service is dreadful

I needed to leave the hotel early and was told by a rude man on the front desk that they couldn't handle an early check out on a weekend. I needed to pay for the extra days and then email for a refund. I did this (three times) and never got a reply.

Great entrance and view but that's it.

The entrance to the Royal Olympic suggested luxury but in reality the room that we were given was a through back from the 70's. The staff were rude and arrogant and the rooms decor tired and neglected. Don't stay here it's a waste of money.
