    The AC was on in the room and set to 23 degrees celsius. It was amazing to walk into. It was extremely convenient to all locations. And there was an elevator.

    Excellent location near to Duomo, right at centre of shopping streets near to good eating joints. 15 min walk to station. Hotel is located in the old township of Florence.

    Stayed at room 9. Very old room with furniture in horrible condition. Badly needs makeover. Room was clean however felt depressing. Bathroom is very small/claustrophobic. Badly needs renovation. Very very old with no space to stand for shower. Water pressure leaves shower much desired Buffet breakfast with bread that either is few weeks stale or cheap leftover from bakeries. Bread roll hard enough to break your tooth. Juice diluted with water. Only Cake was good. Hard finding anything good to eat. Better to book without breakfast if you desperately need to stay in this hotel. No iron avlble. Wifi avlble at euro 5 per day Definitely put it on the NOT RECOMMENDED List. Would never stay there again even for 50% of price.

    It was a good location and the hotel gave you a map and could arrange parking for you (expensive - but typical in a city). We stayed 2 nights and got a really good price on one night but almost double on the second. The cheaper night was really good value for money and the more expensive night - too high. The hotel was clean and the room had everything that you needed. I would recomend this to anyone who wanted to use the hotel as a base to go out and explore the city.

    The cost of the seond night. - there was a festival on. Also it was really noisey because of the good location so if you are a light sleeper really not a good idea.

    Hotel Olimpia is in a very central location in Florence, right on Piazza della Republica, which is only a 5 minute walk to all of the wonders of Florence. Our room was really clean and pleasant, although didn't have any view to speak of. The breakfast room is lovely with a great view over the square and a glimpse of the Duomo. The fellow on reception when we arrived was very friendly and helpful, giving us plenty of info about Florence and showing us on the map. All other staff we met were really friendly, and our room was air conditioned, which is very welcome in the heat of summer. The hotel is good value for money and a really nice place to stay.

    This trip was my first time alone after 40 years of travels, My priority was for safety to get to and from the hotel at anytime of the day, Surprisingly, all corners of Florence is at reach from the hotel location, whether on foot, bus, taxi, train or to the city tour bus stop. Personel at the frontdesk were very helpful specially Mr. Marciano who was always friendly and ready for assistance, The cleaning ladies were at all times polite and had a smile on their faces. Floor was cleaned everyday and bathroom disinfected. Shower was in a narrow corner like any other 3 star hotel in Italy. Beds were clean and comfortable. Had airconditoning and a safe. Not to forget, there is an elevator.

    Because I traveled alone, I would have liked to have a room with a window overlooking the piaza. Sinds the hotel occupies only the one floor on the forth floor of the building and have a number of rooms, I realized, it would have been impossible to supply every client with the luxury of a window overlooking de piaza. In my case, solo, I would like to have been entertained with the sounds/noise from the piaza until the wee hours of the night (and sound proof close the window when I decide to get my rest). The room I got was situated on the inside of the building, with a window overlooking other windows on the same floor and that of below floors. It was extremely quiet (if you have no company), a room perfect for elderly clients or families with children whose sleep could not be disturbed. But, jah! We can't have it all!.. I slept well all through the 7 nights...... I had a double bed for myself!... And yes, I felt safe. If I get another chance, I shall return...

    We have a room near reception - little noise ... till ~ 22:00

  • 5.8

    The location is excellent, right in the heart of the city and a comfortable walk from the train station. The breakfast is substantial and has a nice range of things (no meant but boiled eggs). The day staff are very friendly and helpful. Let me leave my luggage next to reception on checkout day. Housekeeping was good. Room straightened up every day.

    Do not let them put you in room 16. Right next to reception and the kitchen area. For 2 nights I did not sleep. The night porter was watching loud films, the walls are paper thin and neighbours noisy when they came to get their keys from the porter. When I did finally sleep, I was awoken at ~5:30 when the day shift started to arrive. I basically paid for luggage storage and breakfast. Wet room shower is a little weird for anyone not used to them, but they give you plenty of towels. The location does not justify the cost. I was disappointed and I will not stay again.
