Eco friendly Hotel

The hotel is using solar panels to heat its waterMore than 85 percent of the hot water for Kronio Hotel’s 23 rooms is supplied through energy harnessed from solar panels. On February 2008 Kronio hotel became the first hotel in Olympia to make such a use of solar energy. 15 solar panels, covering a total area of 60 square meters, have been installed on the roof of Kronio hotel. Solar-heated water is stored in a tank with a capacity of 1.000 Liters. The solar panels were manufactured in Greece by SAMMLER, a renowned leader in the solar power sector.

The Kronio Hotel uses very little electricity, through the use of low consumption light led bulbs.
