Area description
Among the 3 star hotels in Venice, Best Western Hotel Olimpia offers a considerable advantage: it is located in Piazzale Roma - the only area in the city accessible by car - just steps from the vaporetto stop which sails the charming Canal Grande to reach San Marco. From the hotel it is easy to reach the cruise ship terminal and Santa Lucia train station; if you travel by plane, our hotel has a convenient landing for water taxis from Venice's Marco Polo airport.In a sheltered area in the Santa Croce neighborhood, in the peace of a silent fondamenta, Hotel Olimpia is a few minutes on foot from Basilica dei Frari - one of Venice's main churches - and Scuola di San Rocco, theater of Tintoretto's extraordinary works.

Great option if you are planing to get in a Cruise

We just spend one night at this hotel and it was perfectly located close to the Cruise station, walking distance. If you are going in a cruise this is a great option, if you want to be in Venice, then it is NOT.

Again if you are planing to go to a Cruise you can walk from this hotel to something called the "People Mover" pay 1 EURO and this will take you directly to your ship.

Great Hotel for Cruisers

This hotel is right next to the Piazza Roma, and is in a great location for people getting on or off a cruise. A short walk across 1 waterway and you are there. Cruise lines provide free buses to cruise terminal. Free wireless interent in lobby, however we were able to get a signal in our room on the second floor.

Location is EVERYTHING

WE were in Venice less than 24 hours. The Olympia was easy to find when we got off the cruise ship. We picked the hotel based on location, and was very pleased with the personnel, service and beautifully decorated room. Its in the perfect spot for an easy trip to the airport, for a very early flight back home to the U.S.

From middle aged couple

It was our first visit to Venice. The hotel location was great. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. Most spoke english, so that helped. The room wasn't overly big, but very quaint, clean and sufficient. As Venice is overall, there are lots of hallways and steps, but that's what made it quaint. Breakfast, which was included, was nice. Sufficient continental breakfast. Would use this hotel again.

Kaikin puolin miellyttävä ja mukava hotelli

Tämä hotelli oli todella mukava. Mukava ja rauhallinen huone, kävelymatkan päässä kaikista nähtävyyksistä ja rautatieasemasta.
