“Great spot, great staff, great town!”
Reviewed February 5, 2008

We just spent 5 nights in beautiful Cortina recently, staying at the Hotel Olimpia. The hotel is centrally located in town, very convenient to everything. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the staff was very helpful: making restaurant recommendations, bus transfers, directions to ski areas, and just generally helping two Americans in Italy. They have all the local knowledge needed to make your stay easy and enjoyable. The room was nice, clean, and just what we had expected based on what we saw on the website. We loved our stay and our trip will never be forgotten!

We have just returned from one week spent at the Hotel Olimpia in Cortina dÁmpezzo. The hotel is very centrally located making it ideal for walking around the town and if you are a skier for walking to theFaloria Ski Lift. The hotel/B&B has a warm and cozy feeling to it and we immediately felt at ease. The rooms are tastefully decorated in rustic mountain style and very clean with good sized balconies should you wish to watch the world go by.
Our hosts John Luca and Roberta were extremely accommodating, helping us with every enquiry we had during our stay.The meuble (B&B) has an inviting bar area which we used before and after our dinner each night. Although we did not use the fitness centre one is available. Our children were pleased for the computer in the lobby area which they could use to keep in contact with various friends throughout the week for an hourly charge. Breakfast was a selection of continental style foods, eggs were available should you wish. Once again the breakfast staff were courteous and helpful
For the price of our holiday , we really found it extremely good value, we were made to feel completely at home and that nothing was too much trouble for us. The one overriding factor about the holiday was the friendliness of the Italian people and the fab food!

We only stayed one night as we were on a rally accross europe but the room the staff and the area the hotel is in was great, nice view across the mountian (we were in room 14). I could not fault this hotel one bit not cheap but worth the money.
I wouldnt use the place if you are not up to climbing a few stairs though, the enterance has about 40.

En-suite Shower was powerful and the bathroom clean.

We had a bottle of wine from the bar it was only £7 and not bad at all.

Breakfast was the normal continental style but a good standard of food, they had loads of different teas and coffee was fresh, the only thing was as we got there late we had to wait for bowls etc.

The town is only small and mainly used for ski winters but the cafes, shops and resturants all cater for the higher end of the market.

Other Services the hotel had were WiFi and a sauna for a fee.

A quick review to say that we had a good experience at Olimpia. It's so centrally located, and it is great value compared to other options in Cortina - clean, cute (enough) decor. Only thing is that you do have to pay for the spa, which we didn't realize till we arrived. The hotel did give us a complimentary pass to the spa, but turned out both the hot tub and sauna were less-than-hot. And the breakfast isn't great - pre-packaged pastries in one of those warmers and less than impressive bread. But tolerable. On the other hand the concierge, Micaela, was super helpful on a couple of counts: one, helping us find great restaurants, and two, helping us find the carabinieri when our rental car got banged up overnight.

I have been skiing in Cortina d'Ampezzo with friends and family for over 20 years. We have seen the extensive renovations throughout the years which have made this hotel a very confortable one.

More important than it's perfect location in the center of Cortina d'Ampezzo, the legendary ampezzan hospitality of the Lorenzi family and its dedicated employees always make it a most memorable stay. The wilingness of all the employees in wanting to assist is what makes the difference inn this legendary and unique resort destination.
