Hotel Olympia is a warm and friendly family run business. At first we were a little worried after missing our ferry stop and arriving in Santorini at 2am with nowhere to stay! However, the chap at the 'last minute rates' accommodation in the port assured us it was great.
I am sure we could be forgiven for being a little tense about this as it seemed like the perfect opportunity to rip off some tourists.
But alas! Hotel Olympia is modest and clean. The beds are comfortable and the pool area is a welcome retreat from the heat of the day. The hotel is located a short (10-15min) walk from the town centre of Fira - the capital. There is a supermarket nearby, however, there are no cooking facilities in the room. Also be warned - many of the closer restaurants and bars are overpriced for meals and drinks. Make sure you scout the place first for cheaper deals in the town centre.
What really made our stay was the warm hospitality of the family. Everyone has a smile and is happy to help where they can. They even offer a free transfer service!
