Great place to stay. Very nice location. Walking distance to train station and taxi cab to airport. Just don't forget to plug in the bug thingy :) Would highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and very comfortable to stay in."
This hotel was located very close to both the train station and the bus terminal, making connections easy. The hotel was clean and the staff helpful, the room was clean and the beds nice. We had a garden view which was nice, especially since the window would open and we could get some nice fresh air. Breakfast room was bright and sunny, looking onto […] a back garden area, breakfast was good. I would have no problem recommending this place, nor would I hesitate to stay here again if I get to Venice again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, watch out fo the steps"
This was a very fine hotel of its class. The staffs' English was very good, and they were very helpful. My room was in an annex to the hotel which did not have an elevator, but this was no problem for me, and the bellman helped bring my bags up stairs. The breakfast was a high point because they had scrambled eggs and a European style bacon on the menu. […] The location is only a short walk from the St. Lucia train station, and can be easily walked to. I wanted to visit the Church of St. Nicolas on the island of Lido. Looking at the map, it seemed that it would be impossible without a car. When I asked at the desk, they were able to give clear instructions on how to take the waterbus over to the island. The cab ride to the church was only 7.80 euros. It was fixed. There is a 20 euro 12-hour pass for the waterbus, and a person may want to consider that if one is moving around Venice. Finally, the downer was the canal bridge to the east of the train station. It does not have a ramp structure, and even though the steps are only 4-5 inches high, one has to carry one's bags up the bridge. Going down, with the small steps is no problem. Watch out for the folks who want to "help" you with your bags. They don't accept "no" easily. If they carry your bag, expect to be hounded by them for a tip. These guys aren't motivated out of charity to help the stranger. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location for pre/post cruise."
This was a perfect hotel for our post cruise overnight stay. Located right across the canal from the bus station, there is only one easy bridge to cross with bags taking about 5 minutes to walk. After getting off the ship we were able to check in and drop our bags, then spent the day exploring Venice. Returning late afternoon, our bags were in our room. […] Our room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. We were able to make our 6:45am flight by leaving the hotel at 4:40am, walking to the bus station to take the 5am ATVO airport express bus to the Marco Polo Venice airport. I would deninitely choose this hotel for another pre or post cruise stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Recent stay at Hotel Olimpia in Venice"
The hotel staff was very helpful. The breakfast was fantastic. The mattresses on the beds, however, are much too hard. It was almost painful to sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient to cruise ships and Venice sights."
A very nice hotel in a convenient neighborhood. Close to cruise ships, train and bus station. The rooms and bathrooms were small (but have found this in most European hotels) but clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean, comfortable, close to port and bus/train"
This hotel is just one street/canal from the bus station, very close to the train station and cruise ships, yet you still feel like you are part of old Venice. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. The place was clean and well maintained. The breakfest buffet (included in our stay) was very nice. The room we had, on the top floor, was very small […] with a low ceiling - but was quite lovely and charming with a very nice modern bath. However, if you are over six foot tall you might have trouble with the ceiling height esp. in the shower. The elevator is TINY. never seen one so small, not much bigger than a large dumbwaiter. Overall, I would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely place to stay in Venice."
The hotel was in a great location. We could see it when we arrived by shuttle from the airport and were able to walk over one bridge with our luggage with no problems. The staff was friendly and helpful. We loved our room which overlooked the garden area where we ate our breakfast every morning. Breakfast was included with our room and was delicious. […] It was available early enough so that we could start our day with time enough to see everything on our daily agenda. They do have an elevator which was very small but adequate. We would stay again and recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Fantastic location, close to airport/cruise dock"
This hotel had fantastic facilities with large rooms (by Venice standards) and a beautiful breakfast room with garden seating. The desk staff were extremely friendly and offered great recommendations for local walks and restaurants. We especially enjoyed talking with Robert at the desk, he was very funny and went out of his way to make our stay excellent. […] The included breakfast was very extensive and the free wifi very fast. We stayed here because the hotel was an easy walk from the cruise terminal and also very close to the bus to the airport. It was our favorite hotel of our stay in Venice.

"An hotel with 4 floor without elevator is unaccept"
Our room was located out of he hotel in an other bilding without elevator in floor number 3.You don´t had reception in this building therefore everyone can go in. I don´t recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a reasonable price"
Very friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary breakfast was better than I expected. This was very close to the cruise port and the train station which made it easy for access to the modes of transportation we were using for our trip. Very quaint room overlooking the courtyard. The room had more space than anticipated and 2 separate air conditioners […] which was nice to have. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Venice. It was a reasonable price with great access. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was very clean and nice, everyone was friendly, very close to mostly all the sights, but what isnt in venice right? Great restaurants nearby, and close to the vaparetto station and bus station!

The hotel met all of our needs and so much more. The staff were very friendly and ready to give assistance at any time. We especially liked talking to Robert who gave excellent directions and suggestions on what we should see during our visit. The hotel was located in a good area and very close to the cruise ship terminal and railway station as well […] as the water buses. The breakfast was excellent with a very good selection. The service was also very good. Would stay again and highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Venice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"perfect for short stay"
I was in venice foe one night. The hotel is not even a 5 minutes walk to P. Roma, which has the express bus from and to the airport. When I got there, they had a map that was ready for a short walk tour of venice. Very friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Definitely used a wide angle lens"
The accommodations were comfortable and clean. The room was tiny. Did I say tiny, I meant tiny. We were in the attic room with sloped ceilings and very tight accommodations. The rooms were non-smoking in our wing of the hotel, yet four days in a row, two times a day we lodged complaints about our downstairs neighbors smoking both in the room and with […] the window open and rolling into our room. Each time, we would hear the phone below us ring and arguing ensued in Italian. The smoking was terrible, it is one thing on the streets, but a completely different story when we are supposed to be in a non-smoking room and all of the rooms below us were non-smoking as well. Very, very disappointing. Other than that, the staff was very good, but the constant smoke seeping into our room was awful. If I had paid any more than we did, the hotel staff would have got a very large verbal confrontation from me, but, I wasn't willing to risk having to find new accommodations over the hotel's inability to deal with their issue.

"Location, Location, Location!"
A (currently five euro) bus ride (or 80 euro taxi ride) from the airport will take you to the transportation hub of Venice, Piazalle Roma. where you can take a vaporetto (boat) down the Grand Canal, take the (currently 1 euro) PeopleMover to the Cruise ship terminal, ride a gondola, or walk over a small bridge to the Hotel Olimpia which can be readily […] seen- no searching back streets - it's RIGHT THERE! The English-speaking staff was very friendly and helpful. As we checked in, I asked if there was coffee in the room. They don't come with coffee, but the desk person went over to a room behind the bar and produced a tray with a hot water pot, instant coffee, tea, etc and handed it to me so I could take to the room (complimentary). The elevator is small (two people and a suitcase will fill it up) but they will deliver your luggage to your room. Just off the lobby is a dining room where a nice (again complimentary) breakfast (rolls, muffins, cold cereal, meats and cheeses - nothing hot 'cept coffee and tea) is served, a storage room for luggage if you need to leave some things for a few hours after you've checked out, and free internet. We probably had the smallest room they had - I glimpsed larger rooms as I walked around. The quad rooms are good sized, so if you need more room... This is not 4 or 5 star hotel. It IS a good basic room to stash your stuff while you're visiting. I'd highly recommend it and wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else on a Venice visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a GREAT city."
The Olympia is located quite well in Venice with very easy access to buses and other transportation. It is only a block away from the "People Mover", which gives you absolute access to the wharves which dock the cruise ships and have only 1 canal bridge to cross, so your luggage won't have to be lugged too far. :) Also, Venice is a small city (as far […] as walking is concerned), so access to the streets is immediate. There are great maps available in the hotel which will get you anywhere you want to go in the city by foot. They also make good souvenirs, so get two. The hotel itself is quite nice with good decor and a very acceptable breakfast. The rooms are a nice size, not spacious, but usable. Our room overlooked the canal outside the entrance. The noise was not objectionable, even barely noticeable. The windows are easily opened so you can enjoy the outside sites and sounds as you desire. The temperature in the room was easily controlled, though I can't speak to any air conditioning since we visited in late October and it was cool. For those who like them, there is a bidet in the bath. The shower comes without a curtain, so shower carefully. The shower/tub is not at all cramped, something I've noted as a problem across Europe, so this was a plus for me. All in all, I found the Olympia a good resting place while visiting one of the most memorable places in Europe. I highly recommend it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

aircon was not working when we stayed for 1 day. the night was quite uncomfortable esp with mosquitoes outside.. Also while the rooms are well done, the ceiling is very low giving a very claustrophobic feeling...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was our second stay at the Best Western Hotel Olympia. The hotel was great again, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a lovely room with a very luxurious en-suite and a very comfortable bed. There were good views out to canals and Piazza Roma from the windows. The room was very quiet so we got a really good night’s sleep. The breakfast […] had a wide selection of good food and there was plenty of it. Being so close to Piazza Roma made it very convenient for great local transport links including the water bus around Venice, the direct bus (ATVO) to the airport and the train station.

"Excellent hotel close to bus and train stn"
Had a brilliant long weekend stay at this hotel which was located very close to public transport and only a 40 min walk from San Marco. The room was compact but very comfortable and clean. We had a room (406) overlooking the canal. The noise level was high due to the bus Stn opposite but with window closed it was ok although room did get a bit hot. […] Too early for the air con. After all it is a busy city you expect some noise. The service was excellent and I must mention in particularly the manager Roberto, Remi (the barman) and the trainee young man. Their sense of humour was brilliant and they kept us entertained when we came in from dinner for a drink. I have never laughed so much. Breakfast was good constantly being replenished, choice of cakes, cheese cold meats, eggs, bacon etc. Thanks for making it a wonderful stay. Will be back soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was perfect for our pre-cruise shopping. Although we did have stairs in the annex, the third floor room was large and spacious )like an apartment), clean and comfortable. I loved the garden view. The staff were terrific in providing guidance for our specific shopping requests and where to go, especially since I wanted Murano glass watches […] for souvenirs. The breakfast was substantial and fresh...lots to select from. Since it rained so hard on the one day it was so nice to have so many cafes to choose from for close dining. This hotel was much quieter than the one we stayed in by San Marco square and the close proximity to all of the transportation services made it the perfect place to stay for our repeat visit to Venice. I would stay here again. We love Venice! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Journey of Excellence"
This hotel in Vienna was worth my whole visit even if I did not get to stay very long. The staff were superb going out of their way to make you feel wanted. The chef in the morning prepared a breakfast that I had never before experienced in terms of variety, plenty, taste and display. The room floors are marble and everything about this hotel symbolizes […] elegance. Robert, the evening operator recommended an excellent restaurant for us and you felt like you wanted to stay much longer. I would recommend this hotel as the best hotel I have ever stayed in America and Canada and I have stayed in many. Congratulations to all staff and the independent owner/operator for running a top quality hotel in every sense of the word. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
