HOTEL REVIEW # 185 Olympia Nasty
MY TRAVEL STYLE: If possible, I try to stay away from business hotels and strongly prefer resorts that resemble the Four Seasons, Aman, and Oberoi but try to find similar properties at lower cost. I seek out the “wow” experiences.
LOCATION: Very good. The views and seclusion are nice but it’s definitely a car ride to town. Town is definitely not as good of a place to stay.
BEST WAY TO GET THERE: Need a car. Follow the signs to Hotel Europa as there were no signs in the main town of Olympia to this hotel. Asty is 2 minutes drive past Europa on the same road.
TYPE OF ROOM: Standard.
BED/SHEETS/PILLOW: Bed was too hard and sheets were of mediocre quality. Pillows were mediocre. Not an enjoyable bed.
LIGHTING: Good in both room and bathroom.
BATHROOM/SHOWER: Shower pressure was good but the positioning of the shower head was not in a good place for an enjoyable shower. Shower is in the bathtub. Some mold but overall clean. Bathroom has zero style and is very basic.
TOILETRIES: Mediocre… probably best to bring your own.
CLEANLINESS: Room is very clean.
A/C: Barely worked. We almost checked out because we were worried about not being able to sleep. We were told all rooms were the same. We went to Hotel Europa and it felt colder but not by much. Fortunately, the temperature outside the room became cold so the room temperature was adequate as a result.
STYLE OF ROOM:. Zero style. Ugly furniture. Surprising with this being a newer hotel that they choose such outdated and cheap furniture.
COMMON AREA: Definitely the highlight is the pool and that we felt away from the big tour groups that the other hotels attract. Lobby is nice but there was no AC and it was very hot inside.
QUIET: Our room was very quiet.
FOOD: Bad. We had spaghetti and pork souvlaki which were both not very good. I almost left mid-way through the meal to go to a different restaurant. Breakfast was also disappointing. Items are pre-cooked, and the cereal was stale. OJ was not freshly squeezed and food presentation was lacking.
TV/INTERNET: TV was very small and not a flat screen; laughable and probably the worst TV I have ever seen in a hotel. Internet signal did not reach our room so we had to go to the lobby for service.
SERVICE: Nothing special at restaurant or front desk.
SUMMARY: I’m not sure where would be better to stay but this place was not enjoyable. Beds at Europa were more comfortable but the style of the hotel was more like a business hotel than resort. There were many tour groups at Europa. I would probably still choose to stay at the Olympian Asty or perhaps try a 3rd property altogether.
