“Best Genoa option for a tight budget”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The price-point of this hotel is in the region of the B+B's at the scummy end of town around Principe station, but the Olympia is on a busy and attractive shopping street, very close to the centre of the old town. Agostino, the proprietor, couldn't be more friendly or helpful. If you don't speak Italian or French, this will possibly involve google translate on his laptop. Don't expect a spotless room or new towels every day, and breakfast is quite basic, at a cafe around the corner, but the hotel represents extremely good value for money.

Room Tip: You could try asking for a room with a balcony

This is a nice b&b for no-frills travelers. On a main street in the new part of town, near the old historic part of town. The place is kind of hard to spot, it's just to the left of the Hotel Bel Soggiorno, it has a floor in a building with other businesses, so look for the small sign near the doorway. The room was nice, the shower worked well, the TV was so-so. Friendly helpful proprietor. Show up late, sleep, and be gone. No frills, good cheap place to stay while in town.

We stayed at The Olympia for three nights, in one of the newly renovated rooms. The hotel has only recently changed ownership and the new owners are currently renovating the whole place. Our room was the first one to be renovated and was perfect for us. It was light and airy and everything was very new and fresh. The brand new bed and mattress made it very comfortable.The owner, a wonderful Signora, is a real character and made us feel right at home. Our two young children loved her. Olympia Hotel is located on Via XX Settembre which is perfect and although quite noisy at night, as our room faced this main street, we slept pretty well. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the renovated rooms.
