just had 4 ntights in this hotel and what a great place to stay. First of all dont let it put you off being near piaza roma, this is a plus point in many ways. Firstly when you arrive you have not far to go to get to the hotel and on your departure it is easy for the bus or train station whilst still being on one of the small canals. Also it is near the universaty so it is cheap for food and drinks. There are some great little bars nearby and at 1.20e for a glass of good wine in nice stemwear you cant go wrong. We stayed near san marco 5 years ago and paid 2e for a glass of wine then. Also some hotels are very difficult to find even after you have been there a few days you can still get lost but staying at the olimpia this was not a problem. The staff are friendly and proffesional and go out of there way to help you. Our room was overlooking the canal room 110 on the first floor, it was a very nice room spacious and very clean and nicely decorated. As the weather was cold it was nice to go back at the end of the day to a nice warm room and plenty of hot water. Breakfast was very nice lots of choice in a very nice little dining room. There was a lovely garden at the back of the hotel if you go in the warmer weather its a nice place to relax. If i return to venice again i would deffinately stay at this hotel.
