Prior to travelling to Greece, friends had recounted there own stories, and I had investigaed safety in Athens which raised concerns. The Royal Olympic Hotel was a beautiful hotel, with great decor and an excellent location to the major Athens attractions. It is directly across the road from Zeus and a 10 minute walk to the Acropolis, with cafe's in between the Acropolis and the hotel.
The room in the hotel was ok, with dated decor, however for the price it was excellent value.
The highlight of this hotel was definitely the rooftop area. The open rooftop bar overlooks the temple of Zeus, and the restaurant area provides views of the Acropolis. The food was really nice in the restaurant and was an overall great experience. If staying in Athens i would highly recommend this hotel for the location and value.
