    Location 9.55 /10

    The Royal Olympic is a 5-minute walk away from the Acropolis and 25 minutes by subway from the airport.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The rooms are, without doubt, large and comfortable. Wood and fitted carpet add the final touches to the atmosphere. Well equipped, each room has satellite television, a safe and a mini bar. The bathrooms are as clean as the rooms and have a large mirror, a bathtub, many personal skin care products and a hair dryer. The rooms offer a view on either the swimming pool or the temple of Zeus.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    Built in 1969 on 6 floors, the Royal Olympic was renovated in 2006 when more rooms were added, raising the total number to 272. The façade of the hotel is very modern, while the interior spaces stick to a more classical style (moulding, marble and gilding...) and offer very good air conditioned comfort. The swimming pool allows for a nice period of relaxation in the middle of the capital, on a pleasant interior patio. The bar and the restaurants have a warm and quiet ambiance.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The restaurant, in an atmosphere of stones and arches, decorated in medieval style, offers three meals, which can be served on the roof terrace on sunny days. The tables are well arranged, luxury is at hand, as anywhere else. Breakfast is served from 7 AM to 10 AM, lunch and dinner include Greek and international cuisine, served a la carte. Lunch is served from 12:30 AM to 3 PM and dinner is available from 7 PM to 10 PM. The bar is open from 10 AM to 2 AM.

    Spa 7.7 /10

    The Olive Tree Spa is open every day from 10:00am to 8:00pm. It has an aquatic area with a Jacuzzi, a steam room and a sauna. Like in all spas, guests are asked to take a shower before using these facilities. In terms of pampering, it offers classic treatments such as aromatic massage, hot stone massages and anti-cellulite treatments. The prices are reasonable without being great value: an hour of reflexology will cost you ?70 (£55), a 45-minute Oriental foot massage ?50 (£40) and a purifying facial ?90 (£71). The most expensive treatment is a romantic couples massage for ?135 (£107). This takes place in a room with two massage beds. Make sure you arrive 15 minutes early to ensure you get the full treatment time as advertised in the brochure!

    To know

    The restaurant on the roof opened in June 2006. It has a gorgeous view of the Temple of Zeus. Two out of 6 floors are non-smoking. The hotel provides 33 rooms for disabled guests.

        Hôtel très bien situé pour visiter Athènes et les sites historiques. Nous y avons passé 1 semaine en 07/14. Nous avons apprécié la piscine, même petite, elle était la bienvenue. Cet hôtel 5* a une certaine classe. Les chambres mériteraient une restauration, elles sont correctes Nous avions une chambre côté piscine Certaines ont vu sur le temple de Zeus situé face à l'hôtel. Le petit déj est correct mais pour un 5*, il y a mieux. la vue depuis le restaurant est magnifique, vue sur l'acropole.

        Séjour très agréable, idéal pour se retrouver en amoureux. L'hôtel est idéalement situé, les chambres sont simples mais cosy, et les petits "plus" ne laissent pas insensibles, surtout pour le prix global.

      • Advantages

        Le restaurant sur le toit, le spa, l'emplacement à 2 pas de l'acropole et la vue imprenable.

      • Disavantages

        l'hôtel est très bien situé par rapport aux sites à visiter. On peut tout faire à pied. Il est à 5 mn à pied du quartier animé de la plaka où l'on peut trouver quantité de petit restaurants. notre chambre avait vue sur la piscine, bien agréable en plein mois de juillet de pouvoir se baigner après avoir sillonné la ville. le petit déjeuner est assez basic mais on ne sort pas avec la faim. La vue du 7ème étage est magnifique (acropole - temple de Zeus)

      The Dorian Inn is located about twenty minutes away from the historic district of Plaka. It is a very good three-star hotel which was built in 1974 and has been regularly renovated ever since. Considering the lack of originality of Athenian hotels in general, this one will quite surprise you.

      Well-located in the heart of Athens and two steps from the Plaka district and the Acropolis, this hotel is primarily for small budgets. But to make your dream holiday come true, you must definitely venture out of your room and out of the hotel. Because the architecture, the furniture or the decoration will not exceed in magnificence the scenery that you have certainly come to seek in Athens. This hotel is first of all functional.
