“Definitely not a 4 star hotel, but suits the purpose”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2011

We stayed at the Europa for the weekend as we were visiting Olympia for our daughter's school festivities. The hotel is old but in pretty good shape, located in a very nice spot right at nature's heart and has a great view.
We found our room spacious but the furniture and decoration was pretty dated and the maid had not cleaned very well.
Breakfast was quite good and dinner at the garden restaurant was also pretty good. The staff of the restaurant was very polite and attentive but a little slow, as they were quite few for the guests gathered to dine. Surely though they made their best to keep us happy.
All in all the hotel suits the purpose of a nice hotel to stay for a few days and visit ancient Olympia.

This property was fantastic. We had two rooms for myself, my wife and 2 daughters. The front desk showed us different options for rooom locations until we found the configuration which worked for us. That in itself was very caring. This hotel is an incredible value. The breakfast buffet was one of the best in Greece and I will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I spent 2 nights here with our 2 adult children. We had a huge, quiet, and spacious suite for a very competitive price. I am grateful for the assistance from the staff while I was working on my reservation, as they helped me find the perfect arrangement for our family at a great price. Excellent beds, spotlessly clean, and very comfortable. Everyone at the hotel is gracious and friendly (and speaks excellent English). We had dinner on the outdoor terrace on both nights-it was just too pretty, too good, and too comfortable, for us to want to walk or drive anywhere else for a meal! The breakfast buffet was generous and quite good, too. Just one word of caution-the drive to Olympia can be long and difficult so allow plenty of time.

Room Tip: Email the hotel and tell them what you need

The best thing about the hotel was the sunset view from the outdoor evening dining garden. The food and service was good. Plenty of signs to the hotel. Nice pool and bar. Rooms were roomy. Good value.

At first we were a little dubious, with the hotel being toted as a 4 star and not looking all that special from the road. But this place was great. The reno to the hotel was wonderful and our room was really comfortable and clean. The grounds were also beautiful. But it was the staff and the food at the hotel that wins our 5 stars. The hotel staff was fantastic - so friendly. The food was fab and so fresh (most ingredients come from their own farm) and our server was fantastic. We ate several plates and it was worth it!!! Overall, we really liked our stay here.

FYI - one of the ladies who works there also has a gold store (where we went to buy a little trinket) so make sure to visit it and tell them you stayed at the hotel (if she's not there) - her husband will give you a good deal.

We enjoyed it, and as a matter of fact, we have already booked again for this summer! We stayed at this hotel in August 2010. It is situated in a very nice location, just above the village of Ancient Olympia, on a hiil with a great view, the room are spacy, sound proof, clean. The pool, not enormous, but big enough, and clean, towels provided for free, the surrounding area very nice, too. Quiet, peacefull. The breakfast meets the european standards, local products (home made jams, sweets etc) offered also. The stuff was helpfull, and overall, the price is good for what you get. Nice job!

Room Tip: Ask for the upper level rooms.

Everything about this hotel was great. The front desk was really helpful and friendly, and the room was so clean and large. Ours overlooked the pool. It was too bad that it was pouring when we were there, but luckily they had some small umbrellas in front that we could borrow. The breakfast buffet was delicious and had a lot of variety including eggs, meats, breads/pastries. We'd stay here again.
