The Bacchus Taverna/Hotel is located in a small and very friendly village about ten minutes drive from Olympia. We toured the acheological site, and drove by the touristy hotels enroute to Archaia Olympia (also shown as Miraka on our map). The host greeted us with a smile, and lead us to our very tastefully decorated room. The bath was small, but immaculate and modern.The bed was very comfortable. See separate reviews of the restaurant, which was good.
One the minus side: balcony was smallish, and the views were just OK, not as spectacular as others have raved. There is little parking in front, so you have to park at a small lot 50 meters away. Our room (104) was a little warm, with a wiff of smoke. We finally realized this was from the kitchen/grill immediately below us. If wasn't troublesome, just had us going until we figured out nothing in the room was burning. My wife found the bed a bit hard for her liking.
