Grand Hotel Olympic

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff couldn't be better. They are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is very good - do buy some more spoons - they ran out almost every morning. The room decor is extremely plain. Part of the enjoyment of being in Italy is having rooms that look Italian - not like a motel in a small town. Great location. Wonderful choice of restaurants all around the hotel.

Sheets were not changed! Bed was hard. Woke up around 3am due to cigarette smoke coming into room. Very out dated hotel. However, everything was close by.

I stayed seven nights at Grand Olympic Hotel. The location is perfect as it is very near the Vatican and it is located in a very nice shopping and restaurant district. The staff is very friendly and helpful. For example, when I asked for a taxi back to the airport, they called a personal driver who charged me less than I had paid for a taxi to the hotel. The cleaning staff was very friendly and attentive also. The free breakfast was perfect for starting each day. I will certainly return to this hotel.

The Hotel is super nice. It is very well located, easy access to many touristic points. The staff is friendly and the breakfast was really good. The only low point in my opinion it was the wifi signal, inside the bedroom the only place where we could access the wifi was in the bathroom, the closest room to the the door.

good área for visitings, museums, food and walking places

Close to shopping and restaurants. It is also close to the Vatican, and not far from other sites.

The hotel is a great location and easy walking to many attractions and the Vatican museums. Lots of great restaurants and shopping near the hotel. The hotel is old, needs updating, bathroom had mold on the walls and in shower, walls are thin and hear lots of noise, but that could of just been noisy guests. Staff were great and easy check in process.

Plus: close to Vatican. Free Breakfast. Cons: small bedroom; closet size shower.

Very nice and clean. It was close to the Vatican. They had free breakfast in the morning but unfortunately we always woke up late and didn’t get to try.

Hotel personnel was very helpful and nice. Continental breakfast was very good.

Good location for the hotel, but the hotel was a bit run down and the taxi service is terrible when getting a ride from the hotel. The front desk person was nice enough when ordering the taxi, but it took 40 mins to get a taxi for my ride to the airport.

It is just an ok Hotel. Breakfast just included coffee, juice, yogurt and a lot of pastries. It is walking distance to Vatican, shops and Los of restaurants. The beds were hard as a rock and Wi-Fi was only available in the bathroom.

Hotel check in & out was good. Staff was friendly and did their best trying to communicate in English or Spanish. Location was perfect, walking distance from the Vatican and metro stations. Seemed like a very safe neighborhood at night. The only "con" we have is that our refrigerator never worked and staff never came to fix it (even though a service ticket was put on by front desk). We had to constantly go and get our toiletries because they would put enough for 1 single day. Room was clean and A/C worked fine. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom could have used a little but more maintenance since the toilet water tank was leaking a little, but nothing that ruined our vacations. For the price I paid we could not have higher expectations. Breakfast was great: boiled eggs, pastires, cold cuts, juice and coffee. Thumbs up here! . Not bad after all. I would recommend this place as a very low cost lodging on a strategic location.

Very convenient to be near airport with easy parking in front of place Only issue was Siri got confused and signs are only in Greek and this is a non tourist area But we found it And loved it Easy 25 minute walk into central Heraklion

It was a good and pleasurable experience. Staff were ok place seems to be secure and reliable

The hotel is in a nice neighborhood with good shopping stores and restaurants nearby. Front desk staff friendly especially the female in the day time. Hotel needs major renovation. The bed was tough to sleep on. I had to use rubber band to close the drape at nights as the room was facing the road. Room 51 had mildew in the ceiling over small shower. The breakfast place was not inviting after walking down the un appealing staircase. The changing of sheets on the third day I can multi red stains on the sheet. Front desk staff never asked about my stay because they did not want to know. Do not answer me in Italian as this review is in English.

Excellent customer service. The bed is just too hard.

This is a very good hotel, close to Vatican, rooms are not that big, but include all you need. Bathrooms are clean although require some repairs (shower). Breakfast was very good as well, and included. If you stay there please check Paul Bianco's store located just around its corners. It carries very stylish and high quality men clothing, made in Italy.
