Historical Traveller Reviews of Olympic Hotel
Great place to stayfrom LynneP
hardboiled eggs/cereal. If you want fruit, there's a nice open market across the street. Also LOTS of shopping nearby: restaurants, clothing, ATM's, coffee bars, bakery, etc. There is also a grocery store in the basement of the "Coin" store down the street. The Metro is within reasonable distance. The bus stop for bus #81 is nearby, which is handy for the sites. Most you can metro to. Great location to walk to the Vatican Museums (get in line early!!) ,St. Peter's, and Castel Sant'Angelo. Seemed to be a very safe area. The hotel staff was very helpful with any questions. They arranged the ride back to the airport for us. Maid service was excellent. The only slight negative I have is there were times the room smelled slightly. It's only occasionally something you notice, not unbearable. Always smelled fresh and clean after the maid service. We would stay again. I'd just take an air freshener next time. Reading other reviews, I believe the room sizes must vary. Especially if you want a single room.

Splendid hotel, great location!from borlandoflorida
Breakfast was typical continental breakfast of croissants, cereal, cold cuts, tea, coffee, fruit juice etc. No hot food though. The hotel bar was really expensive though, cost us 16 euros for 2 drinks! Hotel room has a mini bar, which was lots cheaper.
The hotel was a 5 minute walk to St Peter's Basilica, the Vatican and about 20 minutes walk from the impressive Piazza Novona, where there are plenty of restaurants and cafe's. The Colosseum was another 15 minute walk from there.
Overall, my girlfriend and I were impressed with the hotel. The location was good and the cleanliness was excellent. Some staff could do with a bit more 'customer care' training though. We would stay there again based on what we experienced. Good stuff!
Excellent Hotelfrom sleepingbeauty83
Do Not Stay Therefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Great Spot!from JamieLampitt
shoppingfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel location is very convenient for Vatican (3 blocks away) and shopping is right on Via Cola (the main street outside the hotel). There's a neighborhood green market in the large white building across the street.
The first room we stayed was a little noisy, facing Via Cola. We asked for a room away from that street and got it the next night. No noise problems after the 1st night.
The rooms are of a good 3-star. It's hard to characterize the whole hotel as each floor of the hotel was going through different stages of renovation and our rooms were recently updated.
The night manager can be easily ruffled, but he's helpful in most cases. The rest of the night staff might not speak english. The entire day staff are fluent in english.
Olympic Aurem Clean Convenient and Helpfulfrom cherylcampbell
Near the hotel - Eat at the restaurants near the Metro, not towards the Vatican. They are ALL RIPOFFS charging 200-300% over other "self serve" restaurants.
This hotel is recommended.
Charming hotel!from Maizie3213
Great location, friendly helpful staff!from MissThing606
It's a great hotel, 5 minuted walk from the Vatican, 10 minutes walk from to Metro stations and on a main road with some great shops, such as Furla, Calvin Kien and Italian High Street stores.
I booked via Expedia and requested a small fridge - and got it.
the staff speak good English and helped me out with Transport advice and called me a cab back to Termini.
My room was a bit small, but it was a single - and I didn't go Rome to stay in my hotel room!
The room had a double bed, air-condtioning. The bathroom had a tub and bidet with a small hairdryer by the basin.
The linen and towels were changed every-day and the room was so quiet, I slept through the night!
I was there from 19 September 2004 till 23 September 2004.
I'd recommend this hotel to anyone!
Top Local Tips for Rome
agree price before hand According to notices in Ciampino airport, since the en of last year all taxi rides from that airport should be 30 Euros. However, we were charged 40 Euros and my Dad was charged 50. Just agree what the price will be before hand when you get a taxi from the airport!
Metro Use it as much as possible to get around (saves the feet) - just take care of your valuables and be aware. It's only 1 Euro for 75 mins and can be used on buses and trains - get on and off as often as you like! 4 Euro for day ticket. make sure you have change as the machines tend to not give change.
Roma Pass The Roma Pass is worth the purchase and the metro is very easy to use.
