I stayed at the Hotel Olimpia for one night post cruise Sept 29th. It was a bittersweet stay as this was my last night in Europe after 16 amazing days! The service given by the frontdesk erased any melancholy as it was EXCELLENT! THis hotel is VERY easy to get to after arriving from the cruise terminal via the People mover. You basically walk across the Piazzale Roma, across one small bridge and you are there!
The room itself was beautful, recently renovated and overlooked the canal. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was beautiful!
I sadly did not get to enjoy breakfast due to the ungodly hour of my flight but the bread was baking when I left and it smelled divine! My early departure was another area whereI was wowed! It was too early to take the bus and the front desk arranged for me to share a cab with 2 other people taking the same flight..this significantly reduced the price for all three of us! ( and the cab that was arranged arrived on time...came to the hotel to walk us to the cab and handled all the luggage. AWESOME)
My only regret was that I did not spend longer here...perhaps next time! Grazie Mille!
