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.

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
