the place is very nice, rooms are modern with local material for furniture, simple but complete. Everything we needed for a good stay.
Restaurant is very nice. Service a bit unequal: some things came VERY fast, others we had to wait quite a bit, in the evening, but very good overall.
Only disadvantage, but not keeping us away for next time: it is a bit noisy, by being close to the main road with a bit of traffic early in the morning. Bring ear plugs if you are noise sensitive and it will all be perfect!
Breakfast is also very nice.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Olga's the Italian Corner is the final stage of an educational project for the most vulnerable youth of Livingstone. It opened in 2008 as a production unit in support of YCTC (Youth Community Training Centre), a certified school built by the Diocese of Livingstone and CELIM (an Italian NGO). All Olga's profits go to YCTC which provides training in catering, tailoring, plumbing, electrical, metal construction, computer studies and bricklaying to orphans and vulnerable youth. Most of Olga's employees come from the YCTC's catering course, which results in the project being self-sustainable. Olga's is located in the center of Livingstone and only 9 kilometres far from the famous Victoria Falls, easily reachable with minibus or cab. It is 15 minutes far from the airport and walking distance from the main attractions of Livingstone: bars, travel agencies, shops, museum, grocerystore, etc. ... more less
