We booked three nights at Kronio with intention to visit the immense archeological site and the three museums of Olympia and eventually make a day trip in the region.
Panayiotis, the young gentelman at the reception, went out of his way to organise a day-excursion to Zakynthos from Olympia. While we were enjoying the antiquities, he spent his time on the phone inquiring timetables and prices. After finding the best prices and schedule for us (a travel agent's job, realy...), he finally adviced us to leave the hotel one day earlier and sleep at Zakynthos instead.
The confort and satisfaction of the clients counts for the owners of this hotel more than one night's fee! This is what I call outstanding professionalism. My wife and I will certainly and strongly recoment this hotel to evry one visiting Olympia (a lifetime obligation!)
Besides, the hotel is conveniently situated right next to the railway station. The antiquities, the museums and everything else you will need in that small village is within a few minutes of pleasent walk from Kronio.
