Great Honeymoon - First Night in Greece

We could not have asked for a better hotel. We were looking for a low budget option the night before we departed to Santorini to spend our honeymoon. We booked this hotel because of the excellent price. We ended up loving it! We were able to walk to most of the sites in Athens from the location. The breakfast was out of this world. The views of the Acropolis were simply amazing. There was nothing like seeing ancient structures from your room window. The rooms were large. This is everything you would expect from a luxury hotel, just at a very reasonable cost.

Great hotel in a great location

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The hotel was conveniently located and within walking distance to most attractions. The staff was friendly and helpful. While the pool area was small we were still able to find lounge chairs and it was nice to have an outdoor space to relax in after a long morning out sightseeing. The only aspect of the hotel that we did not enjoy was the rooftop restaurant. While the service was great the food was inedible and very expensive. We ended up having to go out to find another place to eat. Overall we would definitely stay here again in the future but would remember not to eat at the restaurant!

stolen murano necklace while staying there

We just unpacked from the trip to Greece and found that we are missing two murano glass necklaces bought in Venice, Italy two weeks ago. We would like to file a claim with you. I saw the two boxs with necklaces three days ago at Royal Olympic Hotel inside the luggage. I figured at a 5 star hotel, the staff should be honest and not taking personal items from guests luggage. We stayed in Italy two weeks prior and nothing was taken from the luggage and they were 4 star hotels. This is disappointing as we cannot replace these gifts for the family. We paid 20 euros each. This is very disturbing that the hotel charged us 50 euros over the market price for a one day mini island cruise on top of taking our Italian gifts. Please email me and let me know what you can do to help us. Thanks, Jennie King

Great Holiday

Great location to stay for convenience of touring Athens. Great view of acropolis from the roof top restaurant and bar. Restaurant staff could be a little more patient and the breakfast is ok. We would recommend the hotel for future stays.

Amazing

The experience couldn't get better. Fantastic staff, amazing room that overlooks the ruins. Walking distance from everything of interest. I don't normally post a recommendation. But, this hotel deserves it.
