Recent guest reviews

Looking for a cheap weekend getaway to Brugge we were visiting on a budget and welcomed the competitive price for staying at the Hotel Olympia. The hotel is typically european and dated, however there is free weekend parking nearby, staff are helpful and speak good english, and the beds were very comfortable. Would recommend to friends but stress that it is dated, so if you're looking for comfort and cleanliness on a budget with no frills, then this is ideal to you. Another plus - in walking distance to Brugge,

Nice, quiet hotel. It's pretty basic - your standard door key leading into a bedroom. Our room had two beds pushed together which wasn't an issue for us but might be for some.There is really no frills with this place at all but if you're just looking for a place to lay your head it will do! Staff are really lovely and you are only about a 15 minute walk into the centre of the old town and it's quite a direct route. Honestly, I would recommend it if you aren't fussy but for someone who enjoys their comfort and the finer things in life it might not be for them.

Just back from a two night trip and had a good stay here at this budget plus 3 star hotel. Yes the rooms and some of the general areas are outdated and room lighting is very poor with low wattage bulbs. The hotel is tired but we understand is due a modernisation in early 2018. The positives are clean rooms, comfy beds, clean linen, always hot water and central heating very good and individually controlled. The staff at reception were very helpful and happy to give information and advice. Our included continental breakfast was perfectly satisfactory. I saw various contradictory comments regarding the distance from Bruges centre but can confirm from the hotel to the Markt, which is pretty much in the centre, is a 20 minute pleasant walk. It's about 15 minutes to the actual start of the city centre. We went to see the Christmas Market which was very disappointing but Bruges is a lovely city with so much to see and do. Be prepared to spend plenty as it is not a cheap city at all.

For the price of the hotel I was disappointed, very damp smell in the room everyday. Beds were ok but my girlfriend went for a shower and due to the bathtub being very old she slipped in the shower and badly injured her back which ruined Brugge a little. The staff were however quite friendly and helpful but defo wouldn’t stay here again. Has to be better options elsewhere

It is very easy to reach from the train station(10-15 minutes walk),and from the hotel to the center is 15 minutes by walking,people in the front desk is always kind and helpful, rooms were very clean, hot water 24/7, good quality, good price! We hope to our roads shall cross again, Derya&Yagmur

Furniture dated and worn out, dark corridors at most of time as you need to switch lights on every time you walk through them, which I found very annoying, especially at night time. Hard to imagine it's a hotel in 21st century. Some of staff are extremely helpful but others quite rude. Quite a distance to walk from the train station or to the city centre. You MUST drive if you want to stay in this hotel!

I stayed here for 4 nights this September and had a perfectly pleasant time. Bruges can be quite expensive so I wanted to stay somewhere relatively cheap and I got great value for money. Room was very clean, comfortable big bed and towels were changed every day and I had no complaints regarding room. Wifi was good. Location, was a 10min walk from the city centre which was absolutely fine, a nice walk to get there and easy to navigate. I didn't eat at the hotel as breakfast was expensive at 12 euros a head and there were so many bakeries nearby. Overall a great place to stay. Not very modern or luxurious but perfectly fine, cheap, friendly staff and no problems at all, exactly what I would want from a hotel.

The hotel was ok, nothing special if I'm being honest. However, the man at the front desk was exceptional! Super polite and helpful with everything. I was really greatful for how accommodating he was for me and my other guest.

The hotel has friendly staff. The furniture of the breakfast room is old and worn out. We stayed two nights. The location of the hotel is fine. To the city center is a short walk and you can park your car for free near the hotel.

A 3 star hotel located in a pleasant suburb & probably a 30 minute stroll from Bruges (Brugge) old town. There Is no car parking facility at the hotel. On street parking is in a disc parking zone, prior to 6.00pm there is a maximum 4 hours stay, (when hiring a car, companies supply such a blue disc - similar to a disabled badge). However approximately 200 yards away is limited free parking. Main entrance was not wheelchair friendly, a couple of steps but no ramp. Small hotel reception area. Staff pleasant, polite & helpful. English spoken along with other European languages. Small bar off the entrance/lounge area is pleasant, clean & tidy. Small selection of bottled beer, wine & spirits. Small outside area to the side of the hotel with tables & chairs, but this is where a vehicle is also parked (presumably the proprietor), therefore not particularly condusive to sitting & relaxing with a drink. Steep staircase to the 1st floor. Unsure if there is a lift. Corridors & bedrooms are very dated with dark red carpets & brown woodwork, furniture is dark brown “flat pack” design. Adequately sized room, comfortable bed(s) - 2 singles pushed together to make a double, clean linen, plump pillows, large window which brightened the room. In our room water marks on ceiling/wall & wallpaper peeling. Small free standing flatscreen TV. WiFi. Bathroom very small & cramped. Mini bath with shower thereover & plastic curtain, dark brown tiles & woodwork, there is a hairdryer. Good water pressure. Rooms cleaned daily by the same lady whom organises the breakfasts. Breakfast/dining room was pleasant, bright with tables & chairs well spaced. Continental breakfast: Toast, croissant’s, various meats & cheeses, fruit, yogurt, orange juice, coffee, etc, etc. The only hot food on offer was hard boiled eggs. I felt a little pricey at €12.00 per person per sitting. This hotel really does need modernising & lifting into the 21 Century. This venue is okay for an overnight stop or short stay where it serves its purpose. I understand children are catered for & pets are welcome. Check in: 2.30pm. Check out: 10.30am. My wife & l were disappointed with this hotel & will not revisit this venue.
