Great location right in the piazza, walking distance to absolutely everything. Metro is a 10 minute walk, Ponte Vecchio is steps away, the Duomo is right in front of you and all the best restaurants are nearby. The hotel is currently under renovation but didn't provide any discomfort or noise. Lots to see and hear in the piazza, live street... More

Hotel Olimpia is a perfectly located in Piazza Della Republica, a convenient spot to start a city tour with many places of interest in the area such as Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Vecchio, Dumo, Ponte Vecchio, etc. It is small but comfortable and clean. Decent breakfast is served in the dining room overlooking the piazza

It was comfortable. The bathroom facilities were minimal. We were four altogether in one room, space was comfortable but we had no view from our window. It was clean and breakfast was simple. Good reasonable choice for center of Florence.

Hotel Olimpia is located on la Piazza Della Republica, which is a perfect location for touring around the city of Florence. From there, you are at a short distance of the Duomo, the galleries of the Uffizi and Academia, and the ponte vecchio. Now, this is an old building, and the prices of the rooms are quite cheap; don't expect... More

Getting to the Olympia Hotel located in the Plaza d Republica was comical for us. We typed in the address provided by the hotel and followed our GPS directions. We arrived in the city after sunset and navigated the alleys in the dark. Evidently our GPS decided we needed a quicker and better view then the Italian law provides, because... More

This hotel is in a great location. But the rooms are muggy. My husband & I both woke up feeling sick & congested. The hotel agent was very rude. I took my luggage & 9 month old downstairs to wait for my husband to bring our rental car around, and the agent came and told me to move because it... More

The hotel is centrally-located, and economically-priced as Italian hotels go. It is on Piazza della Republica, an easy walk to almost every notable sight in Florence. There are numerous bars and restaurants in the area, and lots of high-end shops. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Florence that is close to all the attractions, this... More

I stayed at this hotel in May 2013 and it was a wonderful experience. Stayed again in May 2014 and it was not a wonderful experience. When making the reservation we made sure there was air conditioning. Upon our arrival we were advised the air conditioning could not be turned on until June. It was an extremely hot night and...

Hotel Olimpia is right in the middle of Florence. All the main attractions are within easy walking distance, for the price you get all the essentials, a clean room comfortable bed and helpful staff. Yes there are other hotels with bigger rooms/bathrooms better decor but you don't come to Florence to sit in your Hotel. For the Price this is... More
