The BEST WESTERN Hotel Olimpia boasts a central position in the ever romantic mystic Venice alongside a typical living canal. It is close to the Basilica dei Frari (the School of San Rocco) and few minutes walk from the Grand Canal. The position of the BEST WESTERN Hotel Olimpia makes easy access via car / airplane/ train or even cruise ship, and is extremely close to the Piazzale Roma and to the train station, a position which allows the guest to easily reach Venice making any transport of luggage, trouble free. Car parking, if necessary, is pre-arranged by the management. We have recently completed a renovation making our services more inviting: reading room, bar, Internet access and a nice garden, a real bonus by Venetian standards. The breakfast room has wall to wall windows facing into one of the typical canal. The bedrooms are all decorated in a typical Venetian style dating back to the early 18th century complete with private bath/shower room, hairdryer, air conditioning, telephone, satellite television, radio and mini-bar. Where not included in the rate, breakfast can be purchased at the hotel, at 5 EUR per person, per day. City fee excluded, up to 3.5 EUR per night, per adult over 10 years old and 10% VAT included.
great location lovely atmosphere
Staff were accommodating and more then helpful, this hotel has so much charm and is so inviting on arrival. The rooms are spacious and the location is great! Right near the major bus terminal and so easy to access from the airport. We really enjoyed our stay and recommend it to anyone looking for affordable accommodation in Venice! We would definitely stay here on return.
They do not have wireless internet throughout the hotel, you have to pay for it, and use it in the lobby and its not value for money.
We loved the friendliness and hospitality of the staff, especially Roberto. We also thought this location is perfect for those who are going on a cruise from Port of Venice since it is adjacent to the plaza where the shuttle bus picks up Breakfast also was fantastic!
Great location, very nice room, bit complicated corridor system (but I guess its just Venice thing:), great breakfast.
Bit stinky corridor outside our room but not a big deal really...
The staffs are friendly. The location is excellent - just next to Piazzale Roma, and a bridge away from the rail station.
Breakfast good. Room very comfortable. Position excellent for accessing all areas of Venice.
On arrival , member of reception staff very brusque but subsequent staff very helpful and courteous.
Close to train station and water bus transport. Good restaurants in close proximity. Overall a good locaton to enjoy Venice.
A minor inconvenience was the policy relating to continental breakfast room service. There was a different menu for room service which was not suitable and the staff (or policy) does not allow the guests to choose their own breakfast and take it to their room.
Closness to places we wanted to go and near the Rome Termini for Train service
It's central location was terrific for access to the city itself plus the bus and train services. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
Staff were very helpful, room very clean, breakfast very good.
It was about a 30 minutes walk from st marks square.
