Nice, comfy, big bed, decent room, even has a coffee maker! Good breakfast. Best thing about this place is the host and owner, Theo. He gave us advice on where to eat in town, where to visit in the Peloponnese, and even let us check out late in the afternoon so we could spend the day sightseeing.

This hotel is nothing special: the room was clean but bare bones, the breakfast was mediocre at best, and the decor is badly in need of "refreshing"; still, it's an inexpensive place to stay and the owner was quite helpful with suggestions of restaurants. One note: be aware that the mediocre breakfast (at best) is not free, and runs six... More

While this hotel is highly rated in the Rick Steeves guidebook we found it to be a quite ordinary budget hotel in need of up dating. The location is fine ( as with most hotels in Olympia ) and the rooms are OK but nothing special. The king size bed was quite comfortable but the air conditioning was basically non... More

In a town that overflows with hotels, the Pelops is a cut above. Not just because it is well located, features comfortable, larger than normal rooms and serves a great breakfast. The family that run the place make an extra effort to ensure you enjoy your stay in Olympia.

Well located in the village of Olympia. The rooms are spacious (with a full bath!!!) - a rarity in Greece. Strong wifi. The place is spotlessly clean and the Spiliopoulos family goes out of their way to make sure your stay is pleasant and meaningful. We've been to Olympia many times before, but this was by far the best hotel... More

This is a nice and friendly hotel that has been operated by the same family for 50 years. Pride of ownership shows throughout the hotel. The rooms are clean and spacious, with small balconies. We loved the high ceilings and even the quaint 1960's TV which we didn't open but brought back memories. The downstairs lounge and breakfast area is... More

We got lost while driving to Olympia so we arrived extremely late to check in (around 1am). The owner was accommodating of our situation, waiting up until we arrived and helping us to settle in. They had some Olympics memorabilia on the wall which he was happy to chat to us about the next day so he obviously didn't hold... More

What a great place to stay in Olympia. Right on the edge of the shopping centre, restaurants, cafes, walking distance to the museums and the ancient Olypmic site. Suzanna, our host was super helpful with organising our time which was limited. Also gave us a free pass in Hotel Europa pool and their lovely restaurant. Don't miss the view up... More

A nice and small hotel in Old Olympia. The hotel is not directly on the main road, and therefore a bit more calm. Rooms are spacious and calm, and the greek yoghurt at breakfast is really good. You can walk to the Archeological site from the hotel. One of the best features of this hotel is that you can use... More

LOVED our stay at Hotel Pelops! Very welcoming and comfortable, with a huge balcony! Most comfortable bed of our entire trip, and the owner has a relationship with the Garden Taverna up the hill, where you should totally go for dinner. Centrally located, comfortable, and welcoming, what more could you want?
