Olympia Hotel Genova

Reviewed 10 July 2014

Although Genova was not our favorite city for children, this hotel is well situated in the center. We loved the attentiveness of the staff at Hotel Olympia. The room was spacious and the price was right. It is a bit noisy at night, but we all slept very well. This is similar to a motel experience in the USA, but with better service, nicer beds, bigger towels and a cute dog, Tommy, that my kids loved. We didn't have breakfast there, so I cannot speak if it. The shower is small but it worked just fine. They provided a hair dryer up request. The wi-fi is really fast. City and food recommendations were excellent. Great budget hotel.

I stayed two nights at the Olympia, where I felt very welcome from the start, and slept like a baby; a perfect starting point for heavy duty sightseeing in Genova. Please understand though, that it’s a cheap and basic option, not a classy hotel. However, the services offered clearly outrank most other cheap hotels I’ve stayed at. My room was ready when I arrived, both bathroom and room was clean and welcoming, wifi worked non-stop with high capacity, keys and explanations given for late night returns.
Two pointers on how to find the place though:
1. Many streets in Genova have both red and black house numbers. The Olympia is located at Via XX Settembre #21 of the BLACK number series. The entrance is across the road from a shop called Coin.
2. The hotel is on the 8th floor of the building, but since the elevator only stops on every second floor, press 4 and you’ll arrive directly at the entrance.
If you want a cheap, clean, friendly, central and well kept place to stay – I’d recommend the Olympia for you!

Room Tip: If you want a private bathroom and not a shared one, make sure you understand what you book since th...

This hotel is very near to Brignole Station which meant that we did not need a taxi. There is a good bus service from the airport on Volabus to the station. The hotel is on 4th floor of a charming grand building and the rooms are spacious with high ceilings. The beds are comfortable and clean.The lift is quaint and tiny but is reliable.
Breakfast was at a nearby café/bar with fresh croissants/focaccia and tea/coffee.
The host does not speak much English and we do not speak much Italian but we managed to communicate well and when things got too hard he used his computer with Google translation. His lovely dog, Tommy has no problem with communication!
They both made us very welcome. We enjoyed a pleasant few days here. Thank you.

It is a really nice small hotel, which is located exactly in the city centre and very accessible to Piazza De Ferrari and Brignole Train Station . Although it's a bit difficult to find, the hotel makes up for it with its simplicity and warm hospitality. The owner of the hotel was really nice and accommodating to our stay. He was very helpful when we asked him for directions and he even said when was the best time to head down to Cinque Terre (highly recommended place to visit to be honest) and he always have bottles of water in hand when we come back from our outings. Despite being a budget hotel, it provides very fast and free internet everywhere in the hotel. Rooms were very clean with a turn down service; very impressive for this kind of hotel.
Not to mention his beloved dog Tommy. A very adorable and good pet which i would consider as the mascot of the hotel. I recommend anyone who stays at the place to take a picture with Tommy at least once.
All in all, we would definitely come back and stay in this hotel if we make a trip back to Genova.

Though the owner speak little English, he is nice and friendly ( and not to mention his lovely dog). When we park our car in COIN, as our rented car is too big, we cannot handle to park it right. We call the owner and he come to help us park, we are really grateful. Very clean hotel and in nice location, a small supermarket nearby to get what one need. If you are driving, remember to ask the hotel the entrance of the car park in advance! It is not on the same street.

I stayed here for a couple of days as a base to do a little business. The location of this hotel is excellent and puts you right in the heart of the city.

Due to a car problem I arrived in the dead of night at 3:30am, there was no problem and someone was still waiting up, I was helped to some nearby parking and given a warm friendly welcome.

The only down side to this hotel is a very small bathroom, I'm a big guy ;-) but for me this doesn't detract from awarding 5 stars as everything else given the hotels size is great for the price.

So, what else do you need? Here you get a comfy bed, clean room, great location, restaurants a few steps away, secure off street parking and fast WIFI !!

In my five weeks in Italy, this was perhaps the best hotel I stayed at. It had it all -- stylish and comfortable accommodations, an extremely friendly staff and an unbeatable location. (Fast and free wifi, as well.) As far as budget hotels go, it doesn't get any better than this -- highly recommended.
