So Olympia is a small modern looking town that doesn't really have much to offer except for it's ancient ruins and very impressive museum. The city itself has quite a few closed down hotels and looks partially abandoned at times. There are restaurants that cater to tourists and locals alike and then there are about 50 souvenir shops, all selling...

The owner was very nice and helpful and the hotel is charming. The location was perfect to access the main street with shopping and taverns. The balcony had a nice view of the church across the road. Great value for an overnight stay!! Highly recommended for traveling on a budget!

For an overnight stay to visit the amazing site of Olympia, this hotel cannot be surpassed. Rooms are very basic and a bit dated, but clean and comfortable. The manager on the desk was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent.

The hotel needs an urgent renovation but the warm treatment received during our stay, madr our choice worth it. The hotel is right in front of Archea Olympia's church, a few meters walk from the main street and the archeological site. Breakfast was simple but enough for us.

In front of the church, near the shopping street snd 5 minutes by walk to the Ruins. The rooms are little bit vintage and pretty small. WiFi works perfectly. Very good breakfast and the owner tries al the time to keep you confortable. Good for value.

The staff were very friendly and eager to please. The room was clean and tidy, although we had trouble getting the water to run hot in the morning. Parking was easy. The owner recommended a decent place to eat, was turned out to be good. The hotel itself is only about 5 mins walk to ruins.

Everybody of the staff was kind with me and my girlfriend. The breakfast and the rooms are awesome. Our only problems were the AC - that didn't work in making the room hotter for the night - and the church ringing bell in the morning, right across the street. I recommend.

The Hotel Hercules is quite simple. The rooms are OK. Unfortunately the walls are very thin so we were able to hear our neighbour snorring. The owner of the hotel is friendly. Best thing was the freshly made orange juice for breakfast. The rest was nothing special. Using some money and own work effort could help the hotel to improve...

My friends and I booked Hercules Hotel for 2 nights and left half an hour after our arrival. There was no hot water, the doors to the balcony did not close and cleanliness was not their strong point. They asked for 30 euros per night for a double room (no breakfast included). This old hotel does not worth the money.

The staff here is amazing. We caught one of the owners painting and we talked to him for 20 minutes about his recommendations for things to see in Greece. He was very helpful and spoke English very well. The room is simple and everyone works well and is just a room. But we don't recommend you spend very much time...

“They will accommodate your needs. We were asked many times if our room was okay. He said he put us in a quiet room, but I think most would be quiet in this town. For better wifi ask for a room near the entrance.”
