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...

Good Location right at the middle of the city with all major attractions and river at walking distance. Good breakfast and friendly staff. only complaint was for rooms with no view and average decor and very small bathrooms where you struggle to bath with no pressure at shower. No free internet and small and old style lift to go to... More

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

The only positive thing about this hotel is it's central location. Otherwise I would not stay there again. It has an atmosphere of a cheap shady hostel, rude and obnoxious night staff, the bathroom is a joke- shower is pretty much above toilet. Oh and you totally get ripped off with wifi (note: it's per device, so if you are... More

Fantastic location, very central but surprisingly quiet during the night and early morning. Basic room and bathroom but all we needed. Great breakfast included in the very cheap price. Would recommend and go back!

I stayed at this same hotel in 2013 and liked it very much. It's in a great location in Florence. However, when I went back again this year, they must have changed management. The hotel was rather dirty in one of our rooms. They also had NO air conditioning despite it being advertised on their website. A/C was the MAIN... More

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights while staying in Florence and I can definitely agree with all the other reviews about the fantastic location! It is very central and convenient to almost everything, considering how small Florence actually is. However, upon our arrival I immediately noticed how loud our room was - we could hear everything going on... More
