The one night we stayed at this hotel was one of the longest nights of our trip. It was awful. I am not ignorant, I knew this was a 3 star rated hotel in the middle of the countryside in Greece, so I knew we were not walking into any type of luxurious accommodations. The atrocious smell of stale cigarettes... More

Everything you write does not relate in any way to my Hotel. My hotel is established by many travel agencies and customers as it engaged 20 years in the tourism business and never had problems with my customers .I don't accept reviews by people who doubt whether they are ever my clients. Please be more careful in what you write.... More

The location of the hotel is one of the advantages.You can reach Olympia in about 15 minutes by car, while at the same time the town Krestena is within walking distance in case you want to get an idea of local life.As for the hotel, the owner really did his best to make us feel at home but there is...

who reduced our rate (quoted 90 euros for a room for 3 adults on booking, reduced to 80, including breakfast). We cannot fault the owner who was helpful and ever-present but the room was tired, dusty, smelled of mould. Pool looked clean and inviting (too cold to try!) and wi-fi fine, plentiful hot water....breakfast very limited indeed. Seems to be... More

I stayed at the Athina for one night with a group of 37 teenagers. In general, we had a pleasant experience staying at this hotel, which is situated in quite a charming little village near Olympia. Orange trees grow all around and chickens are kept by many people in their back gardens. This is very much the countryside! Rooms are... More

I stayed here summer of 09 and most likely will be staying here again summer '10. I really prefer Krestena to Olympia as a town, and although you will need a car if you choose to stay here, Olympia is quite close and this should be considered as an alternative to staying in the tourist-trap town of Olympia (the town...

I just recently returned from a trip to Greece just 5 days ago. During my trip I spent two nights at the Athina Hotel. Overall I found the hotel to be very charming. The owners were very sweet and always extreamly welcoming. The swimming pool was nice and the food was good. The actual hotel rooms were "soso". The beds... More

Dear visitor, thank you a lot for your flattering words and for staying in Hotel Athina. The dimensions of the bathrooms are defined by the law and are the suitable and proper for a tree star hotel. I dont think that other 3 star hotels have larger. At the evening you can also enjoy the songs of the nightingales(birds) Best... More

We chose to stay at the Athina rather than in Olympia itself during a visit to the Olympia ruins. I'm not sure it was the right choice. First of all, Olympia is not that bad as Greek tourist towns go. Sure, it's 100% built for tourists but it's better done than other archeological tourist towns such as Delphi or Mycene... More

Dear visitor, First of all, excuse me but I think that the word "ruins" is not the most suitable to describe the archeologic site, the ancient stadium and the museum of ancient Olympia. I also would like to thank you for your describing-characterizing us as "kind" ,we try to do our best and have our visitors satisfied and happy. We... More

We spent one night at the easy-going Athina Hotel in Krestena last September. This village is a very good compromise to Olympia which is definitely too much touristic! Hotel was okay but the bathroom, though quite big, was really old: no shower curtain and mildew. Swimming pool, some deckchairs, parking. Unfortunately, at the check-out, we have been told that credit... More
