      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.


      Superb Hotel


      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.

      1. The Location

      2. um. ... oh yes .. i cant find the coffee maker.


      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.

      Richard Hayes

      Sheer professionalism


      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.

      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.

It was found together with the helmet of a Persian general - whose name escapes me. :-) The Hermes of Praxiteles is very impressive in size and beauty. Praxiteles had his own workshop at the site. This statue was found in the ruins of the Temple of Hera and is seven feet tall. Hermes' expression changes with every ...

We toured the caves in open boats holding 6 passengers plus the oarsman. I have never been on a cave tour before - it was amazing but we had to keep our heads down most of the time to avoid bonks on the ceiling or sides. We went about 1400 meters into the caves, then disembarked inside and climbed our ...

      ... because we did not have to tour it. We did stop down by the seaside town and have burgers and beer before heading onward. We then drove around the coast and up, up, and up into an amazing valley to go to the oracle of Delphi. We were both surprised that Delphi is literally built into a cliffside - these Greeks do not make things easy for themselves. We checked in to our travelers hotel and headed out for dinner. I thought ...

We had lunch of stuffed tomatoes and greek salad at a local cafe before seeing a pottery demonstration at a local Mycenaean art studio. We bought a couple of small pieces before heading off to Olympia while listening to relaxing Greek music ...
