The Athenian Panorama Room
We are at the Royal Olympic Hotel celebrating my birthday.
It is indeed a luxurious hotel worth visiting and below there is the Review I have posted on TripAdvisor for members or other people who come across this entry.

The Ultimate of Discreet Luxury!
We spent two unforgettable nights at the Royal Olympic Hotel when in Athens celebrating my birthday.
The location is more than perfect away from the centre where the protests take place from time to time, but still close in an ideal spot opposite the Temple of Zeus
We had the Athenian Panorama Room #403 on the 4th floor just opposite the Temple of Zeus with an unbelievable view, a room with many windows flooding with natural light. For several minutes I was standing looking outside instead of unpacking. The outside beauty had turned our window into a live work of art. This beauty became more impressive later on in the evening with lights coming from the Archaeological Temple, further behind the Lycabettus Hill and from the lighted buildings and streets around.
The room was big, beautifully decorated and very impressive with huge mirrors making it look even bigger. There was hidden lighting on two sides and three or four stylish brass sconce with yellow lamp shades with a couple of paintings on the walls that added more luxury to it. The navy blue thick carpet with yellow/gold designs was matching with the stylish curtains, the bed and the sofa set. Even the marble on the small table was matching with the colours of the room. The bed was huge and comfortable and I appreciated the side corner desk where I had my laptop to check for possible urgent e mails.
There was a separate, very impressive closet to slot our bags with shelves on both sides and a central mirror with a stool or seat
Something else that highlights our room are the two separate connecting rooms of the marble bathroom and toilet which is beyond expectations impressive with a real king size bath tub, with stylish tap and shower facilities in the colour of silver and gold. The hotel uses exclusively the Jade by Caterways products and skin essential gentle soap,-all toiletries found in a sea shell.
There is a separate very spacious shower room all in marble with a thick glass door and an impressive glass handle. There are so many mirrors in the bathroom area and the lights are really bright out there that it is so inviting and personally I spent much time here.
Breakfast was on the Roof Garden and it truly included everything to meet the expectations of the most difficult guest.
We had dinner the first night at the new Gourmet Ioannis Restaurant and we found everything so fresh and tasty – a creative cuisine so beautifully presented
Internet is totally free here –the oasis for businessmen. There are many meeting rooms each with its own unique character and charm.
I found the staff professionals and they were all very helpful when I needed them.
The hotel has a small swimming pool in beautiful gardens but it was closed since it is winter. I highly recommend the hotel as guests can find the absolute elegance of style and taste, and enjoy the ultimate of discreet luxury and warm hospitality here.
