"What a great time"
We were there in the off season but we still enjoyed the private beach and ocean and pool. Staff was great. Shuttle was easy. It did not run between the 10 and 2pm shuttle times which made it a little hard on our train times but we made it work. It was a perfect stay. Had so much fun.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Eric, Thank you so much for your candid review! Sounds like you took advantage of our convenient location and easy access to public transportation to explore the Amalfi Coast! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us.

"Very classy hotel at reasonalble price"
We received exactly what we were expecting during our overnight stay at the hotel. Quality hotel and immediate surrounding grounds, pleasant evening dining and breakfast experience with fresh tasting food, and a well maintained private beach area with many small amenities that showed the staff cared about the guests. The area is safe but not close to […] anything else, and we knew this when we booked it. The overall experience for the price we paid was well worth it and we recommend this hotel to others.

"Great beach getaway"
Perfect spot with private beach. Quiet. Good food at breakfast and hotel restaurant. Better if you rent a car as its a 20min drive from downtown salerno but feels worlds away! Another 20 min south and you can see the ruins at Paestum (amazing). We loved our time here and would def go back. Great place to relax and soak up the sun. We actually didn't […] end up going to amalfi coast since we enjoyed the private beach so much. Spectacular sunset too! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"This hotel is a great bargain"
At first we had concerns because not downtown Salerno but we quickly revised our view. This is a clean and attractive hotel that is within easy car access to downtown Salerno, the Amalfi coast, Pompi and points south like Paestum and Palinuro (beautiful without the tourists of Capri). Excellent food and service. Plus with the money saved on this economical […] but quality hotel, you can enjoy all of the sights without mortgaging your home. We highly recommend it!

"Far away from everything"
It was farther away than expected, very inconvenient on the location and the beds in the room where rock hard.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Guest- We are very sorry you found the mattress hard. Had you stated this during your stay we would have rectified the issue immediately. As you may have noted we are a resort that is family run and it is also our home so we go to great lengths to ensure the satisfaction of all our guests. We are located outside Salerno so that we are able to give our guests a resort atmosphere complete with pool and a beach, something you cannot find in Salerno proper. We offer a shuttle service for our guests that takes them to all ports and to Salerno proper, which our guests take full advantage of and appreciate quite a bit. We attempt to please all our guests and to create a relaxing resort atmosphere complete with restaurants and games for children and adults. Gaetano Serluca General Manager
"Great staff and shuttle service!"
I traveled to Italy with my three kids (15, 14 & 11). We found that the most challenging part of our vacation was transportation, whether via airline, train, metro, taxi or bus. We did not rent a car and none of us spoke italian. The hotel had a free shuttle service from the train station to the hotel. It also provided free shuttle service to ports, […] train and bus stations for all daily excursions. This was soooo nice! They also had a great breakfast buffet which had something for everyone. It even includes fresh omelettes and crepes made to order. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good hotel with pool and beach access"
We enjoyed this hotel for winding down after a whirlwind tour of all the major Italy cities. I will say that it is about 20 minutes out of town and although they have a free shuttle it is firmly scheduled for about 4 times a day. They will work with you to add a shuttle if you have train schedules to meet but only to some degree. The staff was helpful […] and the restaurant is good if not a bit pricey. You can eat across the street at Ristorante Heaven for a fraction of the cost and a tasty meal. The breakfast at the hotel is wonderful with plenty of fresh fruit, pasteries, salami and ham, you name it. Overall an enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice Hotel But Far Location"
Very nice hotel with good facilities and helpful staff. Comfortable room with balcony and close to sea. A little farther than anticipated from Salerno - Really need a car to see attractionsGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear guest from London Thank you for evaluating the Hotel Olimpico on ‘Expedia’. About our location, is true that we are located at 10 minutes south from the caotic downtown BUT we are the only hotel in Salerno with private beach access, pool and shuttle shuttle service!. With our comfortable minibus, we’ll have you at Salerno’s center in just 10 minutes, where you can depart for Amalfi, Positano or Capri, by ferryboat or hydrofoil; or for Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples by train.

"A Magical Place"
I loved this hotel. Visiting my son in Naples and he suggested that he and his girlfriend and myself...visit Salerno. Hotel is adorable and so special. We went May 12th and 13th so a little cool to swim. It must be wonderful in the summer. Dinners were so good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Guest: Thank you very much for your nice words spent on this website. The whole staff is pleased you have had an unforgettable time here in our hotel, and we gladly thank you for it. It is in fact a lovely place to be, and the we all members of the staff try to give our best in order to be always professional and efficient. We really look forward to your next stay in our hotel. See you soon. Warm Regards Gaetano Serluca
"Looks are deceiving"
We were very nervous as we approaced the area of the hotel, having never been in that area. However, on going in, it was very clean and the room was a front room view of the sea. We were very tired from a long drive and wanted food, but the restaurant across the street was not open until 8:00 pm. It did not look great, but to our surprise the food was […] the best of our trip in price and quality. They sent us to a local grocery where we purchase some great wine and low prices. the staff was nice, but very little English. That is our fault, we should speak more Italian. The area does not look nice, but assume it is a summer resort area. We were there in March and lots of cold rainly days. There was lots of garbage out so now sure if there was a strike or just not being picked up. It was close to our business meeting, so it worked out great. Would recommend it.

"A nice little seaside getaway"
This hotel was our base for visiting the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii, and Paestum. The room was nice and we had a walkout balcony, which was cool. The onsite restaurant is also pretty good, and I especially liked the pizzeria. This hotel also had the best breakfast of any hotel during our stay in Italy. There was a cook making crepes to order, in addition […] to the traditional cured meats, fruits, pastries, juices, and other assorted Italian breakfast items. The only negative thing I have to say is that it is a 15-20 minute commute to Salerno, but the hotel offers a free shuttle service. The hotel's private beach looked quite nice, and it was still warm when we visited in September. Unfortunately, we didn't get to visit the beach since it rained every day we had free. I'm not really sure that the relatively remote location of the hotel is a bad thing. If you're looking for a quiet, scenic getaway spot on the sea, this is perfect. Everything you need is right at the hotel, so you can just relax at the beach or pool all day, have drinks and lunch at the bar, and then have a lovely dinner in the evening. The staff was also very friendly and willing to help with organizing trips to Pompeii and Paestum. Overall this was a great hotel, but the next time we're in the Amalfi Coast, we'll probably stay somewhere in Salerno. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Nicolas Thank you very much for your feedback. We are indeed outside of Salerno but we do offer regular shuttle service to Salerno as well as direct transport to access all major tourist locations not only in Salerno but also to Capri and the Amalfi Coast, as well as all tourist destinations to the north and south of us for our guests' convenience. In addition to this, due to our location, we are able to offer on site parking free to our guests, a pool, a restaurant and a pizzeria as well as a beach which is very lively during the season. To offer these services we need to be located outside of Salerno proper. In addition we will be offering a new and improved breakfast buffet later this year and also will have a new pool bar for our guests to enjoy cocktails while lounging in the pool area. As the General Manager of this family run hotel, and our personal residence, we always welcome you back and hope you do come back during the season to enjoy all that we have to offer here at Hotel Olimpico. Kind regards, Gaetano Serluca General Manager
"Distance from Salerno"
There was a warm and embracing feeling at this family run hotel. Everything you could need was there. A bit far from the city, and shopping and restaurants, they made up for it with a shuttle service into Salerno or, as an option, a very good restaurant on the premises. Breakfast was outstanding - thevpool quite beautiful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff very helpful This hotel is not close to town but they have a shuttle with the last pick up at 8:00 pm, so you can't have dinner in town unless you return by taxi (35.E) Otherwise great little hotel . Beach is across the street, well cared for with a snack bar and full time attendant. Very Few of the staff speak English.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico We would like to thank you for your valuable comments as well as your patronage of the Hotel Olimpico. We are pleased to know that you enjoyed our private beach located just opposite the hotel and our new brand BAR. Our Hotel is located on the South Coast of Salerno, between the AMALFI and CILENTO COASTS. It is only 50 meters from the Mediterranean sea, and ideally located for excursions to the main attractions of this wonderful region. We provide free shuttle service to and from Salerno. With our comfortable minibus, we’ll have you at Salerno’s center in just 10 minutes, where you can depart for Amalfi, Positano or Capri, by ferryboat or hydrofoil; or for Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples by train. The minibus operates throughout the day and evening, so you can also enjoy downtown Salerno’s fantastic restaurants, bars and shopping. It’s a great value if you want to save on car rentals and still be able to enjoy our fabulous region. And remember the shuttle service is FREE OF CHARGE! For the entire month of April, and from October 11th-30th, there is an additional shuttle that departs Salerno at 21:45 (9:45PM)., so you can try all the wonderful restaurants and experience the historical center at night. We really look forward to your next stay in our hotel. See you soon. Warm Regards
"A little out of the way. Not close to city."
Once we got to the Hotel Olimpico it was very nice and clean. Hotel staff was very helpful. It was our last stop coming from the Amalfi Coast. We arrived in Salerno and needed a taxi to the hotel which was about 25 miles outside of the city. They do have a van which will take you from hotel to the city of Salerno. The breakfast was also very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing in everyway"
We decided to stay in Salerno instead of some of the other larger cities near the Amalfi Coast. We are very glad we did. The service, food, amenities, and upkeep of this hotel was amazing. I know for a fact that I will be visiting again the next time I visit that part of Italy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but noisy on weekends"
This is a beautiful hotel with nice people right across the street from the beach. When we were there the A/C hadn't been turned on for the summer so we had to leave the patio doors open for some cool air. (Be aware that in Italy just because they 'have' A/C doesn't mean you'll get to use it! I carefully checked for A/C in booking for our trip, but […] NONE of 3 weeks of hotels had the A/C turned on in May even though it was much warmer than usual for that time of year.) Because we had to have the patio doors open, the noise from partying, music, loud speaker and fireworks was very noticeable. You may want to check with hotel if this is just weekends or every night during summer months. Also beware of using your GPS. Ours had us lost for hours although it shouldn't be that hard to find. We also had a bit of trouble finding our way back to the main road. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Lovely Hotel"
We recently spent two enjoyable days at the Olympico. A lovely and relaxing resort hotel, it features a swimming pool, tennis court, outside dining area, and its own private beach. Our room that also inluded a balcony was smartly designed, comfortble and more than adequate and like the well-appointed bathroom, was spotless. The staff spoke English and […] were both knowledgeable and helpful. An excellent buffet style breakfast was included. While situated about 15 minutes by car from Salerno, the hotel provides a shuttle service into the city. Just across the street from the hotel, you can catch a bus to Paestum whose ancient and awe-inspiring Greek temples and its remarkable museum should not be missed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would rate this a 5 had the shuttle service been a bit better. On one pick up, I only had 1/2 a seat due to too many pick ups and on another (unbelieveably) we had to go pick up a bunch of high school kids at school. The driver was only a mile or two from the hotel and could have dropped hotel guests off and then gone but instead we were forced to […] wait in a parking lot for a bunch of kids for over 45 minutes. There were some hotel guests who had a problem with even getting picked up. Other than that, great place with fabulous food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a very comfortable overnight stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Driving up to this hotel made us wonder if we had made a mistake booking this hotel but when we drove into the property we were pleasantly pleased. The hotel was clean, comfortable and friendly. The Mediterranean Sea was right across the road and it was wonderful to eat dinner in their restaurant and look out over the water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A real find when you can't afford to stay on the Amalfi Coast!"
This small hotel was a hit with us...right across the street from a beautiful beach area with showers, lounge chairs, umbrellas, etc There was a beautiful pool area but the ocean water was so warm we opted for that. The restaurant was good, reasonably priced. The included breakfast was outstanding. Everything from eggs to cereal, pastries, etc. There […] are also several restaurants and pizzerias within walking distance. Overall this place was a real find, from the free parking to the internet and beautifully maintained grounds. The rooms were a tad small but this is the way with European hotels in general. Did I mention the free shuttle that took us to the train station? Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
A wonderful place to stay, the Hotel Olimpico was a beautiful oasis away from downtown Salerno. Very secure, well staffed and spotlessly clean both inside and out! Our rooms were modern and comfortable with great bathrooms and FREE wi-fi. Food was very, very good and the breakfast buffet was amazing. Although we didn't use the pool, it was sparkling […] clean. And the beach!? Lovely and clean with spectacular views of the sun setting over the Amalfi coastline. The Hotel is within walking distance to many other great Restaurants, and the FREE parking and FREE shuttle service made our stay even better. We traveled mid-September and enjoyed a crowd-free stay. As American travelers, we expected to encounter people who spoke little Englsh: we were, after all, in Italy. The staff, always very patient and friendly, did their best with English as did we with our Italian and we had no difficulties. Isn't travel all about adventure, anyway?! Having stayed at other "4 star" hotels during our visit, Hotel Olimpico was, by far, a true 4 star rating. A true gem!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was in and out of Sorrento very quickly and didn't realize until I got there that though it was only a 15 minute taxi drive from the train station to the hotel...it was 31 Euro...EACH WAY. They do have a free shuttle but I didn't know about it and it would not have worked for my schedule anyway. The staff was very nice and very helpful and the food […] at the restaurant was excellent but it is a really bad location if you have to get to the train station.

Great hotel with fantastic, friendly service from all the staff. Rooms a little small for a family of 4 but it didn't spoil our stay.

"service was impeccable , but isolated location"
this hotel is about 20 min drive from the city of salerno so u will prob take a shuttle which is provided. the hotel is modern looking, maintenance is perfect, very clean, the staff really want to help you as best as they can and they are very friendly. since the location is isolated, you must rely on their restaurant at additional cost. wasnt impressed […] with food. breakfast however was really good lots of selection. overall it is a resort like place to stay but far from salerno. although they offer a shuttle to the station/port if you want to go to amalfi/positano,(like we did) it might be better to stay in central salerno and walk to the station as this place is very removed and further away from amalfi. google map it, you will see what i mean.

Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Guest: We do appreciate your taking the time to review our hotel but politely wish to point out some facts. Our hotel is in a resort area, not in Salerno proper because Salerno proper is quite chaotic and there is not space for a resort such as ours. For sightseeing we offer shuttles, free of charge, to all major ports to Capri, Positano, and Amalfi as well as the train station to Pompeii and Naples, so our guests are never more than a shuttle ride away from the sites. In fact, due to our location we are able to offer space, a pool, a private beach and a resort atmosphere; something few other places in the entire region can offer. We put great emphasis on the opinion of our guests and it is our main ambition to guarantee a consistently high level of service. Therefore, we are especially happy about your positive evaluation. We are looking forward to welcoming you again at the Hotel Olimpico soon. Gaetano Serluca Hotel Olimpico owner and G.Manager

Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Guest from Vancouver We do appreciate your taking the time to review our hotel but politely wish to point out some facts. Our hotel is in a resort area, not in Salerno proper because Salerno proper is quite chaotic and there is not space for a resort such as ours. For sightseeing we offer shuttles, free of charge, to all major ports to Capri, Positano, and Amalfi as well as the train station to Pompeii and Naples, so our guests are never more than a shuttle ride away from the sites. In regard to Salerno you are actually incorrect, like much of southern Europe we have a "siesta" schedule here in the South of Italy and the stores open at 16:30/4:30pm and close at 20:00/8:00pm. We time our shuttles to accommodate the store hours. In fact, due to our location we are able to offer space, a pool, a private beach and a resort atmosphere; something few other places in the entire region can offer. Finally I apologise for any odours you may have encountered, this is the first complaint we had in regard to any offending odours in our rooms which are usually rated as some of the cleanest in the region by Trip Advisor reviewers. Thank you again. Regards, Gaetano Serluca
The hotel is good overall, the room is good size and nice deco, but the curtain doesn't block the light so kids wake up very early. One thing worth to mention is the excellent breakfast. Lots of choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Simply Fantastic. Highly Recommended."
Just awesome. Don't let the distance from Solerno stop you from staying here as it is a plus. Besides they have a free shuttle. Some light maintenance was underway during our stay (although it did not disturb us at all) to re-invigorate the facilities of the hotel, the only issue being that our 16 month old son could not use all of the play equipment […] (it was being painted). This was not really an issue though as there was plenty of room to run around and the pool was great. He didn't seem to mind. All the staff were exceptional and their English was easy to understand. Nothing seemed to be a bother for them and they were so interactive with our son. It made for a very homely feel. In fact we were booked in for three nights but ended up staying four and wished it could have been longer. Food was also brilliant. Best hotel in 3 weeks of traveling Italy.

"Best buffet breakfast ever"
The staff at Hotel Olimpico were lovely and accommodating. The area in which the hotel is situated is not the best area, but the hotel makes up for it in providing plenty of reasons to not travel far - eg. excellent pool and service. The buffet breakfast was the best buffet breakfast I've ever seen - the variety and quality of food was amazing. We had […] to leave early to make a train for Rome, yet still talk of our disappointment at missing a chance to make a dent in the huge selection of food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

very bad surroundings, hotel is nice, breakfast is perfect. location very bad! far away from everything. not clean surroundingsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to compliment our hotel and our breakfast, we truly appreciate the feedback. In regard to the location we are in a location that comes alive during season. We offer shuttle service to all the major ports, attractions as well as Salerno proper. Hotels located within Salerno proper would be unable to offer the amenities we offer or have the space and beach we have for our guests. The area itself is quite lively and impressive during season but as we choose to remain open year round, we do understand that, as with many resort locations, they can seem desolate off-season. Than you again and please feel free to come see the difference in ambience the season brings. Regards, Gaetano Serluca

The good; You can get a v decent pizza in this hotel. The bad; Reception awful - v poor English, and didn't respect the requests we made saying it was "50:50" whether they could make up two single beds rather than not push the two together. There is a motorway next to the hotel and it looked nothing like it did in the pictures. Electricity failed […] twice and the air conditioning didn't work in the room. Building is decrepit. I would avoid this place at all costs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico I am very sorry and surprised to read such a review and would like to actually have you contact me to discuss this, please feel free to send an email to my attention or call. I also must add this is a most unusual review as we are a family run hotel and we see to that any repairs needing doing are done as soon as possible. Furthermore, our staff is known to be very good at English, in comparison with most of Italy, and also Spanish and other languages from various staff members. Finally, the street you were on is not a highway it is the street that goes from the Amalfi Coast's end and the beginning of Salerno City past the coastline. In order for us to offer a private beach, as with all hotels in this tourist district, we have no choice but to be located here, which most guests describe as serene and quiet and at worse a little dirty, as resort area streets tend to get, I truly am sorry for your experience but assure you this is an unusual situation and if the beds were refused you in any way I would like to know as I will personally discuss the issue with staff.
"Good base for exploring Amalfi coast and Naples"
Good hotel. Good food and service. Enjoyable open space area for lunch/dinner. Nice pool, the sea not far away either. The hotel location slightly remote, but if you have a car not a problem. Our room did not have balcony/terrace. My wife thought this was the only room in the hotel with no balcony. Without balcony or terrace the room is on the small […] side. Overall, the hotel Olimpico was a nice base for us to explore Amalfi coast, Naples, Pompeii etc. Driving, as always in Italy, very risky so you have to be extra careful especially with a rented car. We witnessed two traffic accidents, one on the Amalfi coast and the other one near the Naples airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Olimpico Thank you for your glowing review. We take a lot of pride in our family run hotel and we are very pleased that you had such positive things to say about our hotel. I do believe you are right and you got the only room without a balcony or terrace, and I think I know which room it was. In hopes you will visit again please mention this when you check-in or ask for me on your next visit and I will be happy to ensure you get a much larger room to make up for the lack of balcony or terrace. While having a car does give you freedom you rightfully pointed out something we in Italy live with every day; horrible drivers. It is for this reason we offer a free shuttle service from our hotel to Salerno Centre. This enables you to catch ferries to Capri and the Amalfi Coast towns as well as the train to Pompei or just see the city of Salerno. Again thank you for such a kind review and we look forward to welcoming you back with a nice balcony in your room the next time.
"Far away from anything you would want to see"
No free internet, internet only works in lobby not in rooms. Some of the front desk personel is helpful. Pool is under construction, restaurant is too expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A lovely hotel"
The manager was very welcoming and the first impression of the hotel was that it was maintained to an excellent standard. The gardens and surrounding area around the swimming pool and hotel were immaculate. Rooms were spotless. We only stayed for one night as we were on our way back from holiday. Breakfast was excellent. The only downside was that it […] was about 3 miles from Salerno and you would need a car to visit must-see sights. However, the hotel offered a shuttle service into Salerno and the manager seemed very willing to help in any way he could. They had tennis, table tennis, swimming and other games. A private beach was available but you had to cross the main road to get to it. We felt that the evening menu was restrictive and expensive. There did not seem to be any other ristorantes in the area and you would have to go into Salerno to get a selection of restaurants. Car parking is free. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Italian Hospitality at its best."
We were made to feel welcome from the first moment. Friendly, helpful staff always willing to go the extra mile to be of service. Great Restaurant with wide range of well prepared food at a very affordable price. Most pleasant surprises were the minibar prices, same as the snack bar - so often one is ripped off by inflated prices for that midnight thirst, […] not here - WELL DONE Olimpico! We came to Italy for a wedding and were so impressed by our experience here that we had no hesitation in recommending the hotel to another couple at the wedding who were unhappy with their hotel.They thanked us profusely, and agreed with our enthusiasm for the Hotel, especially for the FREE WiFi, really fast and no dead spots. We enjoyed a day at Pompeii, the free hotel shuttle whisked us through the crowded streets of Salerno to the railway station where a fast train took us to the famous ruins. A most enjoyable 6 days. Thank You Hotel Olimpico. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Salerno Experience Feb 2012"
The hotel is situated 12kms out of town at the beach at Pontecagnano. The hotel stay was exceptional. The room was really nice, jacuzzi in the bathroom,nice hot water & a really big comfy bed. The hotel service was excellent. Breakfast was sumptuous with nice eggs and toast, cereal, fruits, tea and coffee. On site parking included, lots of room. Across […] from the hotel was the nicest little family restaurant that served a delicious hearty Italian meal for next to nothing. Fautless stay on our way to Paestum. HIGHLY recommend as an alternative to the stressful bustle of Salerno city..We will stay again without hesitation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Olimpico, Litoranea Di Pontecagnano 1"
This was an excellent and very helpfull/friendly hotel. The entire experience was clean and charming. One negative factor was the fact that it was Autumn, just the one restaurant across the road, although extremely good food and helpful, a choice of restaurants would have been an option. Nothing else closeby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was in wonderful condition and had a lovely pool. The private beach was a real bonus as well! The location is a bit in the middle of know where, so we would reccomend that you have a car to travel round. The food in the hotel was lovely, a bit on the expensive side, but still delicious. The room was perfect, with good air con and fantastic […] black out shutters!!! All the staff were very friendly an their english was very good. All together a wonderful stay and we would definatly return! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
