“Dreaming place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2011

I've been there many times and in all seasons - it is really a special place , Gianluca & Roberta, the owners of Hotel Olimpia, made our staying more than special with their friendness and professionality. The hotel is very nice and worm, i'd say familiar - here you can find anything you need. The position is unic, you are right in the center of the Village - closed to the ski resort, the citylife and the beautiful shops!! Go and enjoy it!!!.

We were at the Hotel Olimpia on the last night before they closed for a break before the winter season. The whole town wasn't exactly bustling, but the Olimpia did its best. We did get a good restaurant recommendation, for the Restaurant Lago Skin, which was about a 10 minute drive out of town (if you don't have a car, it would be a pretty long walk.) We got to the restaurant about when they opened, and were naturally the first ones there. The food was a great mix of Italian and Austrian (it's only about 10 miles to the Austrian border) and was well served.

Because I stayed at this hotel after the summer season was over, there were not so
many activities. Buses to the mountains and cable cars were closed. But the hotel staff tried to find us the amusements and places to go.
The location is in between bus terminal and the main street and it offers the easy
access to everywhere you want to go. Also the restaurants were so close.
The room was very comfortable and clean.
In the end, I want to thank Michel, as he is the great guy!

We stayed here for a week in July. The temperature was really warm 24 - 27C. The hotel value for money is very good compared with others that are only slightly better located, we found that the lack of air con was the only real downside- our room, which had a wonderful balcony at the front of the hotel, was very close to a noisy bar and the necessity to have the windows open meant that you could hear people on their way home from this lively town so earplugs were very handy!! The rooms at the rear of the hotel would be far quieter but you would miss all the on street action! This wouldn't put us off going back to the same hotel at all - the service was great, a really good choice of continental style breakfast with extra bacon and eggs type available at a charge. The maids were brilliant and the rooms were always spotless. Lovely new and clean bathroom

Also car parking is free round the back of the hotel with a handy rear hotel access to it (make sure you state this requirement when booking!) which makes a huge difference to cost - on street parking is not cheap

Reception were extremely helpful throughout with loads of good advice (Venice is only 2 hours away by car if you want to visit, and we were given excellent advice as to where to park, how to get there most effectively etc etc.)

We spent a lot of time up in the mountains in the cooler air - the refugios are great places for lunch and you can get to some really good ones by cable car. It's worth visiting these - not only really handy for food, drink, loo, rest etc, but really well spaced for a good walk from one to the next - and you can walk up, down, or both as many are serviced by cable car.

My partner and I stayed for a week and found the hotel to be very good. It is a good 3 star value hotel with a quality breakfast, friendly and helpful staff and owners and a great location situated in the village and an easy walk to ski lifts. We would stay again. The only negative comments would be the bed was not very comfortable and the afterski parties were quite loud outside our room on the weekends.

I enjoyed staying at this hotel! I have rated them with 5 dots ("Excellent"). There are, however, a few caveats.

First, the good stuff:
1. The owners. The owners of this hotel are WONDERFUL! Roberta and the others are extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. Their welcoming and always cheery demeanor will more than make up for any short-comings that this hotel may have. In fact, I would choose them over a higher-end, ultra-luxury hotel. Not only do they care about your stay at their hotel, they genuinely want you to enjoy and experience all of Cortina d'Ampezzo to its fullest. They are always ready with excellent recommendations for restaurants, shopping & sight-seeing, etc. They are also a good source for suggestions on where to go skiing for the day based on a combination of your level of skiing, the type of skiing you want to do, and the current weather forecast. Speaking of skiing: if you want an instructor or guide, they will arrange one for you. (Here's a big shout-out to Cristina Bondi -- the BEST instructor/guide in Dolomiti Superski!).

2. Cleanliness. My room and bathroom were very clean and the house keepers kept it that way through-out my week-long stay.

3. The location. This hotel is very centrally located (see also not-so-good stuff). It is convenient to any number of restaurants, bars & shopping. The cable car to Faloria as well as the bus station for the various ski buses is a very short walk from the hotel.

4. The breakfast. They have a great breakfast spread -- lots of baked goods, cereals, sliced cheeses & meats, coffee/cappuccino, teas & juices.

5. The bar. The hotel has a charming little bar off the lobby. It is definitely NOT a nightlife hot spot; instead, it is a nice quiet place to meet up with friends and grab a quick drink before heading out to dinner.

6. The spa area. The have a nice spa area. There is a sauna, hot tub (see also not-so-good stuff), showers & changing rooms, and lounge area. If you are traveling with friends, this is a nice space for relaxing after a day of skiing.

The not-so-good stuff:
1. Location/noise. While the central location of this hotel makes it extremely convenient to bars, restaurants, shopping & skiing (you can easily walk to the cable car that takes up up to Faloria), it is also a noisy location. Other reviews have commented on the noise issue as well. I am a moderate-to-heavy sleeper; so, I was able to sleep through it, but some other members of my group had difficulty falling asleep and/or staying asleep. I think some rooms may have been more noise-prone than others (My room was directly over the main entrance). One night, the screaming & yelling of people in the street was shockingly loud -- especially for a mid-week night (and Europeans think Americans are loud! heh-heh-heh-heh). Unfortunately, this is something over which the hotel has no real control.

2. Room size. Though the rooms are very clean and neat, many of them are quite small by U.S. standards. Even so, they still retain a quaint charm. The bathroom was also very small by U.S. standards. However, it was very clean and that's what counts!

3. Hot tub. As nice as the spa area was. We all jokingly referred to the hot tub as the "tepid tub." It was barely lukewarm.

I would highly recommend this hotel to almost anyone. Unfortunately, if you are a very light sleeper, you might want to consider a different hotel.

Convenient city center location and one street down (so to speak) from the autostazione. Supermercado very close. No car necessary. Roberta & Michele are wonderful, hospitable & engaging people. I plan to visit Cortina again and will definitely stay here. Large toilette with full bath. Friendly, friendly staff. Charming hotel. Still has circa 1950s flavor but has been upgraded with modern amenities. WIFI throughout. Drawbacks = no restaurant; Cristallo nightclub across the street can get noisy until 2am.
