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.
... at a near vertical 80 degree angle. From there we drove 2.5 hours passing millions of olive trees & into the orange grove province. A quick stop at the Epidaurus Amphitheatre and on towards Nafplio which looked like a lovely sea village that is surrounded by two Castles. This stop was only 15 minutes so there was no time to explore. Lunch was late around 2.30pm then onto the ruins of Mycenae (Kingdom of King Agamemon). We then took a long coach ride to ...
... bring on the alcohol.
Against our better judgment, we
elected to eat dinner on the sail away pool side Greek barbecue, not
one of our better choices, worse meal of the trip. There were
virtually no Greek dishes, the few they did have were done poorly,
and the remaining food was tasteless and overcooked. Early to bed,
tomorrow, we say farewell to Greece.
... We ended up at a small family restaurant across the road from where we ate at lunch. The food was good and plentiful and David even picked up a 500 ml Mythos beer glass for 5 euros so he was happy. We rounded off the night with a glass of ouzo back at the hotel to celebrate David's day and headed off to bed. I would definitely recommend the visit to Olympia if you head to Greece but then again there isn't much of this country which isn't worth a visit. ...
... was pretty cool, just to stand there, where 1300 years ago people stood at the first Olympic games. Competing in events, not exactly like we do today but nonetheless.
The Olympic flame of the modern-day Olympics is lit by reflection of sunlight in a parabolic mirror in front of the Temple of Hera and then transported by a torch to the place where the games are held. When the modern Olympics return to Athens in 2004, ...
