Kronios is a place easy to reach and very close to the Museum and the archeological site. The attention is superb. The place is neat and quiet. Panagiotis is a very friendly and helpful person. You'd find his advice very useful to move in and out of the Pelopponese. Cheers!

This hotel is a real gem. From phoning to confirm booking due to a mistake in the email address i sent, through to providing help to get to a great local out of town restaurant. Nothing seems to be too much trouble. Hotel is clean and nicely decorated providing great value. Easy walk to Olympia site. Top marks for great customer service.

Overall a very nice, clean room within a short stroll of Olympia ruins and museum. Owners were exceptionally nice and helpful -- made you feel very welcome. Breakfast was very nice, and late checkout was no issue at all. A great value!

Very nice hotel, great rooms, good breakfast, very clean and walking distance to the archaeological site in Olympia, best way to beat the tour buses coming from Athens is to stay overnight on Olympia get up early and visit this beautiful site before it is to warm and busy. This hotel is in great shape and was a good choice to make the visit to Olympia a success. Owners are very helpful giving directions and travel advice

Good hotel for the price. Central location; just a short walk to archaeological site and museums. Very helpful and gracious innkeeper and very clean room. Great internet connection. Breakfast was a bit skimpy but adequate.

We stayed for one night in the family room. It was clean, spacious and comfortable. The hotel is walking distance from the museum as well as the ancient Olympia site. The owners are nice and always ready to help. Though we checked out later than the given time, they had no issues. Overall a nice, clean and comfortable place to stay.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the Ancient Olympia site and Museum and we stayed in a triple sharing room for 1 night. You can find many souvenir shops and restaurants just outside the hotel but for food, you’re better off going to the nearby village of Floka to the O Thea taverna.

The hotel has been renovated a few years back and it has a lift which is helpful if you have luggage and staying on the higher floors. It is clean and the owner (Panagiotis) is very helpful and speaks good English (along with a few other languages!). There is also hair dryer in the bathroom. Breakfast comes with the room rate and we loved the home made yoghurt that is served there. You can make your own coffee or tea with the coffee machine. The family stays close to the hotel hence they are there almost the whole day. Even Panagiotis’ mother (I think) was helpful in trying to provide us direction to our next destination in Nafplio in her limited English.

We had a good time there and had no issues with leaving our luggage in the hotel while we visited the ancient site before leaving the town. The site does get many tourists around 10am each day from the various cruise ships docked in a town about 30 min away hence better to start early if you want to avoid the crowds.

Hotel makes good stay for a visit to Ancient Olympia and would recommend for people to stay there. Good value for money too!
