“The ONLY place you should stay whilst in Olympia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012 via mobile

I was looking for a clean, quiet hotel to stay at whilst visiting Olympia on my Greek holiday - I found this and so much more at the Hotel Pelops! The family run hotel is indeed clean and quiet but I never expected the friendly staff and amazing dinner I received - all at a great value as well!

The Spiliopoulos family treat you as if you are a member of the family, personally serving you dinner that they made personally and chatting to you about what to do in Olympia, the best places to eat (outside of their great offerings!) and how to get the most out of your time in Olympia and the surrounding area. Centrally located in town, it is a pleasant walk to the sites of Ancient Olympia and anything else you would wish to see and do.

I cannot recommend the Hotel Pelops enough - 5 stars!!!

We arrived late at night with no prior booking. Received a great welcome; nothing a problem. The rooms were large, the bed massive! and the kettle and coffee/tea supply a real bonus. Heater as well. Plentiful hot water and a lovely shower. We asked about breakfast and again not a problem in the beautiful dining room with a view of the town. Quiet, close to all amenities and the site itself as well as the bus stop. Looked after our luggage our final day. Well priced too.

My family (2 adults + 9 and 7 year-olds) stayed here in the depths of the off-season. The welcome was as warm as the open fire in the dining area and as friendly as when I had stayed there 7 years before. It is well fitted out; clean; good value and well located - far enough away from the main strip to be quiet but close enough for easy access to everything.

This hotel is situated in town, and easily accessible to both restaurants, cafes, and ancient Olympia by foot. The hotel lobby and dining area are plesent and well lit with ample windows. The rooms are rather drab, and need updating. We experienced difficultly when the bathroom emited tremendous odors from a ventalaton duct located in the floor. To counter the stench, we left the bathroom light/fan running non-stop, and placed a trash can over the vent. The floor creaked with each step. The owners were pleasent, but gaining assistance from their son is no simple task. Internet was available in the rooms and work well. We received a call to remind us to check out which I thought was strange, and the hot water was turned off while we were still occupying the room, which the owners turned on following my call, so I could shower. Quite odd?

Room Tip: check rooms prior to accepting, to ensure your rooms does not have plumbing issues.

Stayed 2 nights, in a nicely appointed room w/balcony. The bathroom was also nicer & roomier than most that we stayed in during a month in Greece! Breakfast buffet was plentiful and very good, with big windows looking out. The living room area was a pleasant place to spend a little 'down' time. Parking is right outside the door, and there is an elevator to rooms. The owner & his son, both very pleasant, have both carried the torch for Olympic games. Cost at the end of September was very reasonable! Tip: Drive to the ancient site--it's a long walk 'at' the site and you will not feel like walking back!

Room Tip: I'm guessing all of the rooms are good, but ask for a large room with a balcony.
