Olympia Palace
Ranked #11 of 15 Hotels in Olympia
Reviewed 17 March 2014

The hotel is located steps away from both the ancient archaeological site and the modern town. However, the rooms and lobby are rather tired and worn. Small, not-very-clean bathrooms, stiflingly hot rooms, lobby looks like it's straight from the '80s. Not the worst, but certainly not the best, even in its own budget category.

Stayed with cosmos tour group, and would have to be one of the highlights of tour. Great location, great experience, best food of entire Europe trip. Yes the hairdryer does not work properly, but hey that's traveling. Olympia is such a pleasant area great to relax away from busier regions. Highly recommend this hotel, friendly staff,, great chef, and ideal location

Stayed here as part of a Cosmos trip of Greece. The hotel is situated in the town of Olympia and is ideally located for visiting the archaeological site and museums. The rooms were very large with ample room in the sleeping area and bathroom. The shower was one of the best we had on our trip to Greece, although the hairdryer in the bathroom was one of the worst I have ever had to use. The hotel would benefit from refurbishment as some of the carpets and furnishings are looking a little tired and in need of an update, however it was comfortable for one nights stay. During our stay we also had breakfast and dinner included, the meals were buffett style and there was ample choice of a variety of tasty dishes. Overall the service was of a high standard.

Best thing about the hotel was its proximity to the Ancient Olympia site. The whole place could do with an update but was fine for a couple of nights. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were fine. Room reasonable size, clean and had a balcony.

The nearest hotel to the Ancient Olympia site, at the end of the main street and facing the small town hall and the old Olympic Games museum which has lots of story boards giving you the background info behind how the games were organised etc. Our room was a bit tired as some of the paint was peeling off the walls high up, but otherwise the room was very clean and comfortable. Staff very pleasant; had a job connecting to the free wifi but receptionist was an IT expert and fixed it. Had a buffet evening meal which was OK and plentiful, just not particularly inspiring. Would recommend if you get a good price and are there to visit the antiquities.

The Olympia Palace is situated in the heart of the small village of Olympia and is run very professionally by the one family.

The rooms are reasonable size but the bathroom is a bit small for my liking but nevertheless practical.

It has a great restaurant and the meals that we had, dinner and breakfast, were excellent. The staff were helpful although the internet was a hit and miss affair (none of our group were able to log on).

The main street of Olympia is just outside and there are plenty of cafes, restaurants and souvenir shops to purchase items a lot cheaper than elsewhere in Greece. The ruins of Olympia are just down the road within walking distance as is the beautiful but small museum both of which are worth a visit.

Stayed here for a night as part of Cosmos/Archers trip. Right opposite the hotel is the Olympic Museum a let down! Very little labelled and not much different than anything else seen in Olympia Museum! A short walk about 20 mins and you reach the famouds Olympic stadium awesome place. the steps to get to this place are opposite the hotel. Toiletries in the bathroom. The room was a bit noisy as we are close to the street The hotel has a very good restaurant where our group had a buffet meal. Plenty to choose from hot and cold food. Visit the local station about 5 mins walk. Plenty of shops open until late 10pm and cafes. safe place to walk around in. Everyone was very frindle. A supermarket was in the main street.

Room Tip: side street room best
