While the hotel itself is in a marvelous location, the amenities, service and noise level were not worth it. One could find a much better hotel than this one. My friend and I stayed here during mid May, as soon as we arrived I knew the hotel was going to be interesting. The hotel itself is located on the 3rd... More

Too old of a hotel, really needs to be updated especially the bathroom left after one night to find another hotel which was wonderful. Breakfast was so so had better, too bad just a beautiful area for this hotel but not at all appealing. Maybe if they update everything will try again!!!!

Overall: I didn't have a bad experience, but I probably would not stay here again Pros: very clean, friendly staff, overlooking the Piazza dell Repubblica, almost exactly halfway between the Duomo (with the Accademia not far from there) and the Ponte Vecchio, taxi stop right out front, 15-20 minute drive to the airport, 10 minutes from the train station, free...

Great hotel for the price. The location could not be better. Rooms spacious and traditional with nice high ceilings. Two problems: 1. Breakfast is served only until 9am which I think is a bit too early for holidaymakers - it was for us! and 2. The shower is in the main part of the small toilet area - as in... More

I was there a few days ago. Although rooms have to be renewed and the bathrooms are quite old, this hotel is worth a stay as the location and the breakfast are awsome, meanwhile it is very clean and all staff is indeed very kind. When looking for it, please note that it has the reception on the 4th fl... More

At these price points, it's hard to complain too much. The rooms are... well, they have a certain charm. Breakfast is very simple, but does the job. Wi-Fi is not too expensive and has OK prices. Location-wise, it could be pretty much as good as it gets in Florence. Walking distance to everything in Florence. Watch out for the restaurants... More

This hotel was a perfect location in Florence. Steps away from the heart of Florence.....The Duomo! Just outside a wonderful Piazza. Quiet hotel. Rooms were large and the bathroom was large too. The breakfast was ok. Loads of sweet breads.....I wish there was more meat and cheese. All in all I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The people were... More

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.
