I stayed in this hotel, now called Business Class Hotel, from 5-14 November 2014. Pros:- - Very close to downtown of Port Vila. - Spacey, good-conditioned guest-room with free WiFi (room #1 which they called apartment #1). - Well-manner hotel staff. They were so nice and able to speak English. - Nice and enjoyable public terrace on the 2nd floor.... More

I usually stay here as I travel for work, it is close to good places to eat, is clean with large rooms, a fridge, jug, TV and Iron etc. Probably would stay elsewhere for holiday as no pool, restaurant, breakfast or sea views. Early in the morning you will need to run the shower at full for a while to... More

Hi all, I had the pleasure to stay at the Olympic Hotel in Port Vila last week. During my stay I found the hotel to clean and a plesent place to stay. Being central in Vila in was easy to move around the town centre.

The bath tub did not have any bath mats. And the bath tub was quite slimy that I had a terrible slip and had a very nasty fall. This was in late March last year, and I still have the bruised mark on my body. During the fall I had hit the floor with a slump, as I was totally... More

We were running low on funds, when we booked into Olympic hotel, for our last night in Vanuatu. The rooms were comfortable, and spotless. The carpet was a little bit dated and worn in parts, but acceptable. Nice shower

We stayed here for a week in a twin room in April. Location: The Hotel is very central and walking distance to lots of restaurants, cafes and shops which was great. It also on a busy main road which didnt really bother us too much but bring some ear plugs if you are a very light sleeper! Rooms: The room... More

My stay at the Hotel Olympic was a happy experience. The staff were friendly and very knowledgable of the local attractions that Port Vila have to offer. The hotel is right in the centre of Port Vila with local eateries within walking distance. My room had been recently refurbished in a tasteful calming colour palette and was very spacious and...

I give top rating to this hotel because it was simply great value for money. All you could reasonably ask is that the rooms were of a high standard and they were with comfortable beds, large white tiled floors and spacious en suite. Cafes, restaurants, breakfast bars were all around and the Vanuatu Cruising Yacht Club 5 minutes away. MALCOLM... More

I spent a month in the Olympic. It's a short walk to most of the businesses in Vila, and handy to many restaurants, cafes, the Tropical Market, Anchor Inn and Nambawan Cafe. I had two rooms - a large double with basic kitchen facilities (electric frypan, jug, microwave and refrigerator), and a two room suite with a full kitchen. The... More

I stayed here for five nights in October. The hotel is conveniently located on the main street of Port Vila, on the northern side of town. Restaurants, bars and night-life are within close walking distance. If you want a swimming pool you'll be disappointed. Breakfast is not included: it's an optional extra if one desires it. I found the staff... More
