HOTEL INFORMATION:

 

Royal Olympic Hotel - (Athens) Beneath the shadow of Acropolis and just in front of the famous Temple of Zeus lays one of the most luxurious hotels in Athens. This 5-star property is right next to the picturesque “Plaka” (the Old Town), the Royal Gardens and the Ancient Stadium.  The total renovation that took place last year transformed this Athens hotel and turned the Athenian Panorama Rooms into the finest rooms in town. Upgrades to these rooms are available at an extra charge.

  

Hotel Hera -  Ideally located within a short walk  to the Acropolis and Plaka and only a 15- minute walk to the Olympic Stadium, this 38 room, 4-star boutique style is a great choice for those looking for quality, moderately-priced accommodations.

 

Hagia Sophia Hotel - Our 5-star hotel, located in the heart of Sultanahmet, has 63 rooms which were completely renovated in August 2011.  There is an LCD television, espresso machine and two capsules, kettle, two waters, coffee, cream and various aromatic teas, air-conditioning, digital safe, blow dryer, desk, free high-speed and wireless internet connection. The North Shield Pub is a popular gathering spot for guests and locals. Our welcome reception will be hosted here. You are less than a 5 minute walk from the finish of the marathon.

 

Ottoman Hotel - Located at the heart of Istanbul's historical old city with views of two of the most magnificent masterpieces of world architecture, Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, the Ottoman  Hotel offers a unique experience to the guests. Ottoman Hotel Imperial was built as an Ottoman school and hospital in the mid of 1800's. The building has gone through several renovations in 2005 and has turned out to be a premium & superior historic hotel. The Malbah Restaurant is famous for its 13th and 14th century recipes researched by its owners to offer some unique dining opportunities in an elegant setting. You are less than a 5 minute walk from the finish of the marathon.
