The worst choice of hotel I have ever made

Posted 21-Jul-2014
Pros: Nothing
Location: It is close to all the attractions in Florence. Very noisy at night since it is in one of the main Piazzas.
Very Overpriced rooms. Far from train station, it is not within walking distance, especially if you have luggage. Staff very rude. Poor, very poor selection and quality of breakfast, basically not fresh pastries. Dirty room and bathroom. No basic services like TV and the facility to open the dark wood window. The hotel is located in the fourth floor of a building with no sign with the name of the hotel. Small cage elevator to get to the fourth floor. Hotel is popular for receiving large groups of teenagers from the USA, therefore is very crowded in the small lounge in the mornings and noisy at night. Room very small with thin and old pillows. No WIFI. I regretted and understood why my reservation was non-refundable.

Perfect location.

Posted 14-Jul-2014 on Hotels.com
Most perfect location with restaurants literally right outside the front door. Shopping +++ all around. Very easy walking access to sights. The bathroom was quite small with the shower a little different in that it was just in a corner with a curtain drawn right over the toilet. Everything got soaked and that made the floor very slippery and required some drying attention in order to continue with morning routine. Breakfast was very nice with lots of good coffee.

Love the Location

Posted 08-Jul-2014
We drove through Europe this summer. Parked in a lot and took the tram to the train station and walked about 10 minutes to the hotel. This hotel is in a perfect location and we walked everywhere and saw everything we wanted to in Florence! Wifi was a little odd in that only one device at a time could log on at a time and each person/device had to disconnect and log out and then the next person could get on. We paid 5 euros for 4 hours of internet and it was enough for our stay. Beds and pillows could be more comfortable...flat and hard. And yes, bathrooms could use a remodel, but we made it work and were so tired each day it was nice to not have far to walk to crash for the night. I would stay here again and the staff were very friendly, helpful, and breakfast was good. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but few are in Europe unless you really want to pay and it's not worth it when you are not actually in the room that much. I would definitely recommend to a friend and a friend had recommended it to me because of the location.

Hotel Olimpia - "Excellent price and location"

Posted 28-Jun-2014
Pros: Location, Location, Location.
Cons: for the price nothing.
Location: Excellent every thing is nearby we did not have to walk far.
Hotel Olimpia is set in the middle of Florence close to all the main attractions. There are numerous restaurants within a stones throw of the hotel and even more shops. You cannot fault this hotel, for the price you get everything, a great breakfast, very friendly staff and a clean room with comfortable beds. Would stay there again.

Great affordable hotel

Posted 14-Jun-2014 on Hotels.com
This gem is right on the piazza Della republicca and a perfect spot for getting to everything. Rooms were clean, employees were helpful & accommodating. Only draw back was the tiny bathroom where you could sit on the toilet to shower. Breakfast included was typical continental & elevator was unique but serviceable & easy to operate. Very important as rooms are on 3rd & 4th floor.

Awesome location

Posted 08-Jun-2014
Pros: Location, location - it's a room with a view!
Cons: Be aware of the bathroom, but it isn't a show stopper.
Location: It is central florence!
Awesome location in Florence's Piazza del Republicca. The rooms were old but clean. The only minor issue was the shower in the bathroom, which had terrible water pressure andvrequired pulling the shower curtain across a small corner of the bathroom. this meant that we had to and wipe down the bathroom after each shower. A first world problem really and well worth it to stay in a hotel in this location for the price.
