“delightful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Olympia surprised me by being such a pleasant little town, but the Hotel Pelops was an even more pleasant surprise. Suzanne our Australian hostess couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful, and the room was light and airy with a balcony on 2 sides. I'd love to return some time and stay a little longer

Room Tip: we had room 17--couldn't have been nicer

I have visited this lovely small town on three occasions, staying at the Hotel Pelops each time. The rooms are very comfortable, breakfasts well prepared and the location of the hotel is perfect for walking and exploring. The owners are very gracious and helpful. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. The next time I visit Olympia I will certainly stay here.

Owners are friendly and welcoming, and generously helped us plan a route for the remainder of our trip. The room was a good size, and clean- although there was some mold on the shower curtain. The balcony offered a pleasant view of the church and town.

The ownder of Hotel Pelops is a very nice gentleman who we meet in a nearby restaurant. He quickly showed us the way to his hotel and helped us move all our things into the room. Additionally the hotel was very nice with large rooms and bathrooms. The owner was really helpful in helping us plan the route to our next destination, giving us useful advice to avoid the difficult roads.

We stayed at this hotel for one night only, and we are sure to come back, should we ever return to Ancient Olympia or its environs. The hotel has been recently renovated, it's clean, it's family-owned and it's simply wonderful. The beds are very comfortable, the breakfast is great - make sure you sample the best Kalamata olives you can find. There's no dedicated hotel parking, but we had no trouble finding parking on the street when we went.

We paid 50 euros and the value for the money was exceptional. I think if you book through the hotel, the rate is around 100 euro (something we would never pay in Greece, but at the height of the tourist season, it's supply and demand, like everywhere).

Excellent hotel, excellent service. Go.

hotelpelops, Owner at Hotel Pelops, responded to this review, April 28, 2014
Well.... we are lost for words..... “Stay Here!” SAYS IT ALL!
THANK YOU for your kind review :)
We are happy when you are happy.
Just a quick note that when you book through our own website you get the best possible online price so the amount you paid is spot on!
Anywhere else would be more expensive and we are always talking for a double room with breakfast INCLUDED.
Thanks again!

great small hotel run by a nice man, lovely wood and brass finishing throughout spacious room, bath shower doors were broken and leaked water. breakfast limited, but fresh orange juice and greek yogurt was plenty for us. we would stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for room on side street with church view... great morning sun!
