We stayed here for just 2 nights, when we first got to Italy, enroute to Calabria. We were just looking for somewhere that would provide a good base at a reasonable price, and this hotel did exactly that. The directions on the website from the airport were exactly right, and we found the place without any problems at all. The...

Hotel grounds and reception/bar area are very nice. Rooms are old fashoned but clean. The shower in the en-suite was tiny. I'm of average build and found that you'd knock off the water if you turned around. The Hotel is a good distance from Salerno, 40 mins by bus. We found some of the staff arrogant/rude (the owners sons, I...

The Hotel Olimpico advertises that they would supply a shuttle from the train station to the hotel. We alerted the hotel of our arrival date and time - four days prior to arriving in Salerno. The management at hotel Olympico confirmed that they would pick us up on our requested date. So we were all set - Wrong... When we...

After looking at the hotel website I arrived expecting a little more from this hotel than what we got. With the exception of the gentleman behind the bar and the staff in the restaurant everyone else was just rude and gave the impression that we were an inconvenience. I was travelling with a friend of mine and we had specifically...

The hotel and grounds were very clean and well taken care of. The room was a little small for 3 of us but it worked out. What was really excellent was the breakfast - best of the trip. It spoiled us for breakfasts at the places we stayed later!

I noticed some important details missing from some of these reviews. I stayed here in Sept. 2003 with my family and there were no reviews written at that point in time. These are the things I would have liked to have known: Yes, the hotel is clean and the rooms are large and inexpensive. It is also situated in an...

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Olimpico. It was everything its website promised and more. Gaetano is a very attentive host, and very helpful especially since his command of the English language is excellent. Some extra features provided his guests are maps, bus schedules and brochures of the many interesting places nearby (including Positano, Amalfi,...
