About Hotel Olimpia

Set in the historical heart of Florence, Hotel Olimpia is right next to the lively Piazza della Repubblica public square. The casual hotel features classically decorated rooms with views of the Duomo, Museum of Orsanmichele, or the plaza.

The subdued rooms are ornamented with classic frescoes. All offer the conveniences of independent heating and air-conditioning systems, cable TVs, and safes. Private bathrooms come with basic toiletries and hairdryers.

Hotel Olimpia has a 24-hour front desk handling luggage storage and city-tour arrangements. Wi-Fi access is available in all areas of the hotel.

Every morning, a typical Italian breakfast is served in a dining room overlooking the plaza. There is also a small bar offering a selection of beverages. The celebrated Perchè No! – a long-established ice cream shop offering vegan-friendly gelato, is less than a 200-metre walk away.

Piazza del Duomo – a Cathedral-flanked plaza considered as one of the most visited places in Europe, is a five-minute stroll from the hotel.

Positive Reviews

Central location in Florence

The central location of the property suits well to travellers’ preference. Major tourist attractions and historic sites are reachable by foot. Moreover, they enjoy strolling past loads of shops and restaurants nearby. Still yet, going to farther areas around Florence is just as convenient, since bus stations are easily accessible.

Cosy accommodations

Travellers find the hotel accommodations, which feature high ceilings, simple decor, and basic amenities, airy and comfortable. These rooms, according to guests, are spacious enough for free movement and storing luggage. Likewise, the cleanliness of the rooms is satisfactory.

Delicious breakfast spread

Visitors are impressed with the breakfast service of the hotel. According to their feedback, the wide selection of meals in the breakfast buffet satisfies their varying palates and tastes. They are pleased with having different sets of entries every day. In addition, the coffees available are one of a kind.

Negative Reviews

Inadequate soundproofing

Since the building is dated, the soundproofing of the property is inadequate. Guests complain about hearing noises from the street outside, as well as from the hallways of the hotel. Also, activities of other guests staying in neighbouring rooms are loud enough to here.

Unreliable Wi-Fi service

The Wi-Fi facility of the hotel, though complimentary, does not satisfy guests. They mention that they experience spotty connections when accessing the Internet. Moreover, data speed is slow and frustrating.

Bathroom issues

Guests encounter some issues with the en-suite bathrooms. In comparison to their preference, the bathrooms are uncomfortably small. Also, the shower area is poorly designed with no tray or partition so that water can splash all over and wet the entire bathroom floor.
