We visited Athens after long time, staying there for couple of days before cruise from Piraeus!
Wanted to choose a hotel with excellent location near center, and with being different from today's minimal style of interior design and architecture combining the rich history of the city with the great intellectual life which came through the centuries!
Royal Olympic meets all our expectations! Great location, very unique interesting aristocratic decoration, every corner of the hotel was carefully decorated with different furniture which makes you feel living in palace! Just opposite the Temple of Olympian Zeus, very near the Parthenon and Acropolis museum - very easy to move around the historical center of the city, near Zappeion and "Vasilikos Kipos" (National Gardens), few steps away from charming walking area of Plaka! Rooms very comfortable (i called a day before arrival and asked double bed and room in higher floor - a very polite woman from stuff immediately arranged both my requests), the furniture amazing, nothing modern there (but with all the technology someone needs today). Breakfast was excellent, with good variety of food and all very fresh. Quiet library for people who want to have a contact with the richest in intellectual aspect city in the world. And of course, as many people mentioned, the breathtaking view from the last floor restaurant,which people have to visit and enjoy day and night, gives the completion for the wonderful Royal Olympic! Only small suggestion for improvement, complimentary wi-fi is offered in many hotels lately.
