The Hotel Hercules is quite simple. The rooms are OK. Unfortunately the walls are very thin so we were able to hear our neighbour snorring. The owner of the hotel is friendly. Best thing was the freshly made orange juice for breakfast. The rest was nothing special. Using some money and own work effort could help the hotel to improve... More

My friends and I booked Hercules Hotel for 2 nights and left half an hour after our arrival. There was no hot water, the doors to the balcony did not close and cleanliness was not their strong point. They asked for 30 euros per night for a double room (no breakfast included). This old hotel does not worth the money.

The staff here is amazing. We caught one of the owners painting and we talked to him for 20 minutes about his recommendations for things to see in Greece. He was very helpful and spoke English very well. The room is simple and everyone works well and is just a room. But we don't recommend you spend very much time... More

Nikolas was very accommodating. The hotel we planned on staying at in late August was booked up so the manager called Nikolas at the hercules hotel and he came and picked us up and took us to hercules. Very nice guy. Rooms are a great value with great air conditioning. Don't expect outstanding rooms but they do the job and... More

Travelled with friends and stayed at this hotel for a night. Cosy and value for money. It's close to a low priced family owned restaurant around the corner. Nikolas and his wife were helpful , directing us to low priced but good eateries and Nikolas even makes fresh orange juice for breakfast. Wifi works better in the lobby though and... More

We had a last minute change of plans and arrived at the hotel one day early, with no clean clothes and having just driver for 8 hours! The owner found us a room quickly and checked us in, then helped us get our laundry done the next day. The breakfast was wonderful, and he freshly squeezed the orange juice while... More

The hotel was continently located close to the archaeological site. It was also quite close to the bus stop. We travelled by bus from Athens to Olympia and took the bus from Olympia to Delphi, so this was helpful. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

We had a great stay at Hotel Hercules which provides very good value for money. Do not expect luxury, but the rooms were clean and comfortable with great air conditioning. Nikolas was very friendly and helpful - anything we asked for was provided. Breakfast was basic but lovely and fresh - boiled egg, fresh bread, greek yoghurt, madeira cake and... More

Reviews on Tripadvisor were quite good and from the outside the hotel looks modern: we were therefore disappointed to find that the rooms were dated, service was tired and breakfast was below average (although the freshly squeezed orange juice was great). What was worse was quite a strong urine smell coming from the bathroom. Not all bad though: the hotel... More

The hotel is very centrally located in Olympia but unlike most of the other hotels in town there are no signs that we could see for it. The man at the front desk spoke sufficient english and was friendly and our stay was hastle free. All the restaurants and bars in town are a very short walk away and the... More
