We traveled for about 5 weeks this trip and found the Europa Hotel to be one of our favorites. It is not located within the village of Olympia, but it is nicely located up the hill and has a gorgeous view and a wonderful pool. (You can see everyone loves the pool by the number of photos of it submitted!) The rooms are very nice as are all of the common areas. There is a lovely pool bar and the outdoor dining area is spectacular at sunset and after dark when the candles and lights take over the ambience. We ate dinner there both nights of our visit and were not disappointed. Though we were in Olympia to see the UNESCO recognized ancient ruins, the choice of this hotel was perfect. We were able to visit the ruins (which are fabulous!) and have a relaxing afternoon and evening at the hotel. And not being in the village of Olympia was fine! Once you visit the ruins and museum, there is really not much there... a few souvenir shops, a chance to get a beer or have an ice cream. The Hotel Europa was a wonderful choice. One other tip...we were there in mid September. It was not that crowded and the weather was not sweltering the way Greece can be in summer months.
