Our one night stay was very enjoyable because the quality of care and attention from our hosts. We weren't just tourists passing through town but people getting invited into someone's home. Room was comfortable and clean with plenty of hot water.The a/c worked well and the small terrace was nice. The wifi network was fast and strong. The location was great in the town, within walking distance of the archeological sites. Overall a great stay.

An excellent Small Family hotel, so it felt like personal service from very friendly and helpful staff, recommending good tavernas and even helping us to print on-line tickets. Our room and bathroom was lovely. Air-conditioning and mini-bar/fridge were appreciated. The buffet breakfast was good (home made marmelades, Cakes, ham, honey, cheese, yogurt, boiled eggs, tea etc..), Location of the hotel is only few steps from Museum. Overall - a really, really good choice for the price we payed.

The family who operate the Kronio are friendly and go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. The rooms (I saw 3 before picking my favorite) were spotless and my bed was very comfortable. All of the rooms have bathtubs. I had been wanting a good soak and this was the first tub I had in Greece. The free wifi worked perfectly. They have a lift, which means all of the rooms are accessible, even for people with difficulty walking. My only minor quibbles were (1) that there were fewer breakfast options than in the other hotels where I've stayed in Greece and (2) in spite of the good soundproofing, the hotel is right by the area where motorists (and motorcyclists) rev their motors as they head out of town, so it can be a bit noisy for a light sleeper. I imagine this is true of most if not all hotels in Olympia as it is so small and drivers slow down briefly through town and then get back up to speed quickly.

This family hotel is located very near to the museum of Olympia. Decent sized rooms, tastefully decorated with new looking bathrooms. Staff was welcoming and friendly and make you feel at home. They gave a map of the city and many hints about our trip to Nafplio next day. Breakfast was nice and had lots of choice. There is free private parking right outside the hotel.

Hotel Kronio was very nice and had the added bonus of free wi-fi. The breakfast, however, which is included, left something to be desired.

Ottimo rapporto qualità prezzo, l'hotel è stato probabilmente rinnovato in occasione delle Olimpiadi del 2004. Pulito, confortevole, con accesso wi-fi gratuito. Breakfast nella norma (ottimo yogurt).

The Kronio was an excellent choice. The family owned and run hotel was very accommodating and free internet was a nice plus. I would recommend highly. I would also recommend getting directions to and from Olympia from the owners. They are very nice in getting you there and to other locations efficiently. A 10 minute walk to the archaeological site and museum. In the heart of town for easy dining.

A good, basic hotel. Village of Olympia is walking distance to museum & site of ancient Olympia but little there otherwise, aside from souvenir/jewelry shops and restaurants/hotels. Hotel is easy to find, well-located, suited our needs perfectly. Simple but clean rooms. Owner (good English)went above & beyond to be helpful to us and even assisted us with getting bus to our next city and booking that city's hotel. Simple, satisfying breakfast with a rarity -- eggs! -- served by owner's mama (little English but very nice lady). Computer w/internet in lobby, no charge to guests. We definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend if you are looking for simple, pleasant accommodations.

This was a GREAT little hotel. Very reasonably priced and the staff was exceptionally friendly. The only thing missing was a refrigerator in the room. It was very well decorated, clean and had a very large bathroom. Much nicer than the 4 star hotels we have stayed in during our trips to Europe. The breakfast was satisfying and fulfilling. This hotel is a "can't miss" and at an excellent price! It made us contemplate changing our whole itinery to stay longer.

The Hotel Kronio is a very fine hotel, especially for the price. An older hotel that has been remodeled, still it retains much of its character and charm. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect for touring Olympia. It is a very easy walk to the museum and archeological site. It is also in the heart of the town of Olympia with easy access to restaurants and shopping. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would not consider staying anywhere else.

Nice hotel, but the elderly desk clerk was very slow and had trouble understanding the check-in check-out procedures. Rooms were a little shabby, but acceptable for a one-night visit. The Town is great, but is stuffed full of jewelry stores, leather shops and souvenier stands, but it is within walking distance of the ruins.

Nice hotel, friendly staff, room is probably a bit small for the 3 of us but otherwise the stay was brilliant. Nothing to do with the hotel - we took a taxi after getting off the train at Pyrgos at about 9pm. We were a bit afraid that we might not be able to find any transport but taxi from Pyrgos is quite handy.

Hotel Kronio is a good choice for a short or a long stay in Olympia. It is in a very good location, perfect for people coming or leaving by train (the station is a short walking distance). Also good for those coming by car or by bus. The rooms are clean and spacious and the best is the relationship between price and quality. A really good option.
