Arrived by water bus and found hotel with no problem, had a great welcome on arrival and shown room, greatly impressed with how clean and tidy everything was. Staff were attentive and helpful to all our needs, the complementary breakfast was a treat and we found we didn't need lunch. Staff helped us find all the places of interest and were keen to assist, can't complement them highly enough.
This was our second time at this hotel. It's still just as good, the staff are terrific and friendly, just be nice to them and you'll get a cheerful reply always. Location is great, especially if you come by train or car. This is our favourite hotel in Venice.
The hotel is just blocks from San Marco. Fabulous location, walk to major sights, shopping, vaporetto/water taxi, restaurants, etc. The room was spacious, very comfortable bed, full tub, nice hot water, but still quiet. We were on the top floor and had a cute balcony with a nice view of the neighboring rooftops.
We arrived in Venice after dark and crossed the wrong bridge from the train station and that caused us extra time at finding the hotel. Once found, the Olimpia was great. Check in, the beatiful room, the breakfast and checkout were great. and the staff was very willing to hold our luggage all day while we toured.
Great location... Don't get fooled by the outside apperencence. From the outside the hotel looks a bit scary and looks like y may have made a bad choice. The location is very us close to everything
And rooms are roomy.and clean. Staff I as great.
