Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Europa Hotel Olympia
Great place for tourists
I came here on a tour of Olympia. the beds were comfortable, the garden and pool were beatiful, and the food was great. I would come here on my next trip to Greece.
Really a good choice
It is located on a hill, 3 minutes by car from Olympia village. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and spacious. Dinner at the restaurant was convenient and tasty. A good choice and a great value. It is definively a four star hotel.
An excellent hotel...
This hotel would be hard to fault. The service and rooms were clearly four star. Rooms were large, fresh and clean with the area divided into a sleeping and sitting area, The bathroom was excellent and adequate bathroom needs were supplied, Restaurant facilities were first rate. The only slightly negative aspect of this hotel was the food, which was fairly ordinary by international standards.
A nice place to relax after a day at the ruins
We stayed one night in connection with a visit to Olympia ruins and museum. Our room was clean, fairly recently remodeled with a pool view. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is nice and great after a day of fighting off the tourists in the August sun. Dinner at the garden restaurant was convenient and tasty. A good choice and a great value.
We were here for a night in July. The hotel is attractive, high above the town, with nice views. Rooms are spacious. There is a good sized pool, outside dining, and a large breakfast room.
We came in at night and left in the morning. If we were doing it again, we'd spend a second night and leave some time to relax around the pool.
This is a fantastic hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and modern, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the pool area is superb with a very convenient pool bar, with waiting staff who cannot do enough to help you!
Very quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of Ancient Olympia. It is possible to walk into town, but it will take you a good 15-20 minutes and really hard work on the way back up! We stayed here on the Bike & Sun Greece 2005 Tour. Our motorcycle was perfectly safe and plenty of parking for our group of 6 motorbikes.
If possible, I would have given the hotel 4.5 rather than 5 due to a slightly limited menu (but the hotel is better than a 4!). The food itself was superb, however because we stayed for 3 nights, by the 3rd night we were beginning to run out of choices! The outside dining area is very atmospheric with tables placed under grape vines and you really do not want to go any where else to eat and miss the stunning sunsets!
Perfect Pelopenese Hotel
The Europa in Olympia is absolutely gorgeous. The views from the balconies overlook the beautiful pool and the rolling hills of the Pelopenese. The hotel is up a quiet little hill not far from Ancient Olympia and is very quiet and serene. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were a great size with a beautiful bathroom. Pricing is great for what you get. Would definitely stay here again.
A 4.5 Star Hotel with the Price of a 3 Star !!! Best Hotel in Olympia
Myself and my girlfriend have stayed in this hotel for 1 night in January 2005. We are astonished by the professionalism and standard of what this hotel has offered us.
++ The Location ++
The hotel is located at the top of the mountain in Olympia, its easy to find but unless you are very fit, walking to the hotel from the train station is not easy. It took as about 5 minutes to drive uphill to get to the hotel. On the good note, the hotel is away from the city, which provides a quite location with a great view.
++ The Hotel ++
The hotel is modern and new. There are about 20 parking spaces and its has 2 separate buildings. It also has a tennis court, a big garden (with birds and rabbits wondering around), a good fireplace restaurant, 2 large lobby (1 in each lobby) and an internet centre (with 4 computers). We stayed in the new building which has 2 storeys. There is no lift to the building.
++ The Room ++
The room is huge, clean and modern. It's like a suite with TV, 3 person L spade sofa, a coffee table, writing desk, 1 king size bed, electronic safe and a balcony (with table and chairs outside the balcony). The TV has numerous channels to choose from and if you are not TV person, they even have a radio system near the bed.
The king size bed is extremely comfortable - it's a pain to get out of bed.
The lighting is adequate with lights everywhere. The bathroom is clean with a good supply of things like soaps, shower caps, shampoos and even shoes polisher.
++ The Service ++
The service was excellent, we were provided with free breakfast. The breakfast was a fest !! Next to the fireplace and overlooking the garden.
Check in/check out is efficient. Show your passport, pay money and done.

Best Western International in Olympia is a true 4.5 star hotel (even it rate itself 4 star). If you have a car or dont mind catching a taxi, This is definitely the hotel you should stay in Olympia.
I wish I can stay there for longer.
Very Pleasant Place
This family run US style hotel has good sized rooms and baths, a big breakfast in is in a quiet location away from the throngs. Also internet access is available. Worth the money.
The owners of this hotel have been in the business for many years. There is no room for anything other than care, good management, and quiet luxury, high up on the hill above Olympia away from traffic noise. A dream stay (we've been there twice) Would recommend this hotel moist highly.

Travel Blogs from Olympia
Our first bus tour of Greece. Our first stop was the Corinth Canal. It was cold, so we warmed up with a cup of coffee. We continued on to a delightful coastal town called Nafplio where we had lunch. We continued on via Arcadia, Tripoli and Meganopili. Stopped for a break at Kalamatta, region where the Kalamatta Olives are grown. The olive trees in this area are about 200 yrs old.
... hike a little to get to the ruins, but the view alone was worth the hike! The stadium was really neat eto see as this is where the Pythian games were routinely held. The rest of the site is mostly the area around a temple where many people would come to hear the oracle. The oracle was kinda like a fortune teller and people would come from all over to find out what the oracl would say to them. They had to hike quite a bit to get to this site so that was pretty crazy to me! The museum ...
... the games started 2000 years ago so we headed for that and left Kyparissi for another day. We arrived there about 2:30 in the afternoon .. Found a room in the small town of Olympia and decided to tour the ruins where the Olympic Games all began. Started in the museum which it's pretty impressive. Full of relics recovered from the site dating back from 1300 BC to post roman rule in 500 AD. Lots of items were quite advanced technologically and artistically ...
... to actually put deleted emails into the Deleted folder. :( We left Nafplio fairly early as the hotel wasn't the greatest and we decided to eat on the way. We had a few missed turns and had to go across country to get back to our planned route which added about 1/2 hour. On we pressed, found the freeway and a stop on the way to fill our stomachs. After leaving the rest stop we came to an exit to Olimpia (yes that's how it was spelled) and I turned down ...
We awoke at the beautiful Camping Alphios overlooking Olympia and after a quickish ( for us) breakfast set off down the hill for the archaeological ruins of ancient Olympia. We were surprised by how quit it was with only 1 tour bus parked in the campground and when we arrived t the ticket office there was no queue. Ticket prices were very reasonable and the kids were free - as they are for all of Greece's archaeological ruins. The site is just amazing. Firstly it is set along ...
