ROYAL OLYMPIC Hotel – Cat. 5* - Acropolis area. After a thorough and very
expensive renovation that was completed in 2006, the Royal Olympic has
finally reached the standard of its official category and meets the
expectations of its guests who come from around the world. Mosaics, quality statues, original gravures,
marble, wood and bronze all blend harmoniously with each other, creating an
impressive yet warm atmosphere. One of the highlights of the hotel is a copy
of the Delphi bronze charioteer that stands in the foyer of the hotel under
a star-lit ceiling. There are 272 rooms, all comfortably furnished and with
many amenities for the guests’ convenience: private facilities
(shower/bathtub and WC) with full bath amenities, soundproof windows,
mini bar, safe box, ISDN lines, direct dial phone with voice mail, PC
outlets, FREE Wi-Fi Internet access, satellite TV with pay channels and
in-house movies, radio, and hairdryer. The majority of the rooms have view to the well cared interior quadrangle and a wonderful outdoor pool and pool bar.
There are 45 rooms that offer one of the best views in Athens, the Athenian Panorama
rooms, which offer unobstructed views to the Temple of Zeus (right
across the street from the hotel), Lycabettus Hill and the Acropolis
(3rd floor and above). The hotel also features 11 suites,
interconnecting rooms for families, non-smoking rooms and rooms for
guests with disabilities.
The Royal Olympic Hotel is only a short walk from the Acropolis, Plaka, Constitution square and other major sights of Athens, thus making it ideal for those who want to explore the city. After a long day of sightseeing, one can relax at the hotel’s beautifully designed pool while sipping a drink from the pool bar or the lounge bars, read a book at the hotel’s cosy library lounge, have a sauna or dine in the restaurant that also has a wonderful view of the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. For the business travellers there is a well equipped business centre and Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel. A number of versatile and multifunctional seminar and conference rooms are available. A hair salon, a beauty parlour and a shopping arcade are also at in-house guests’ disposal. The hotel has an area with spa and gym facilities. Other services: 24-hour room service, laundry, dry cleaning, concierge and parking.
I stayed here summer 2010 and it is a great hotel. Also the restaurant is one of the best modern Greek restaurants in Athens with an amazing view. You should be able to get discounted rates by using the link to Fantasy Travel below- Matt Barrett
