Reviewed October 30, 2013

We spent a night at this hotel. Adequate is the best description. Rooms are dated but still functional; Staff who were on duty were not really interested and the breakfast was extremely limited. However, the place is cheap.

The ancient site at Olympia is amazing and well worth a detour. However, modern Olympia itself has nothing to recommend it in terms of character, accommodation or eating.

This hotel was very pleasant. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted and quickly checked in. A map of the town marking the hotel and the ruins were given to us as well as a couple of restaurant recommendations. We were only there one night and opted to try La Belle Helene. It was an excellent recommendation. We had a larger bathroom and shower than typical in Greece as well as a larger room with a King bed. Will return if we stay in Olympia again.

An ideal place for relaxing after a day exploring Ancient Olympia. Helpful & friendly couple who directed us to great places to eat and visit.
Excellent spacious room with tea & coffee making facilities & a good breakfast, with plenty of street parking and close to all the amenities in Olympia, yet quiet.
Would definitely recommend this hotel.

The rooms were very nice with a coffee/tea service and ann actual bath tub, which is not common in greek small hotels.
The Greek/Australian family were very helpful in directing us to the ancient Olympic sites and in finding good restaurants.
The breakfast was great too.

Excellent hotel near the ancient Greek Olympic site, run by a combination Greek/Australian family. The place has clean spacious rooms with a coffee and tea service. The friendly and helpful owners and staff were eager to give us directions and information about the nearby ancient Olympic ruins and museum, which are within walking distance. They will also recommend some good restaurants in the town.

Room Tip: Some, if not all rooms, have actual bath tubs. Many Greek hotels only have showers. It might be go...

The hotel is nicely maintained and is a half block off the main road. The owners are very nice and provide you with information on where to eat and how to get to the archeological site of Ancient Olympia, which is just a short walk up the road. There are also several shops and restaurants all in the area. The bathroom was a bit small and so was the shower, but it's no different from the rest of the hotels when travelling around Greece.

Room Tip: A room with a view is always nice. We could see the Church from our room.

We stayed for just one day/night, which was enough for us to see the Olympia site. The hotel was fine. The room was clean, the owners were nice enough, breakfast was OK. Overall, we didn't find much to be enthusiastic about, but also nothing to complain about. It's not one of our memorable hotel experiences, but it was perfectly fine for the night.
