I stayed here for five nights in October. The hotel is conveniently located on the main street of Port Vila, on the northern side of town. Restaurants, bars and night-life are within close walking distance. If you want a swimming pool you'll be disappointed. Breakfast is not included: it's an optional extra if one desires it. I found the staff...

We enjoy staying central to everything going on, so we loved the location of Hotel Olympic in the centre of town. Walking distance to the cafes and restaurants, the supermarket, and ferry to Iririki. Accommodation in Port Vila is quite expensive, particularly for what you get for your money. We paid $90 a night for Hotel Olympic standard twin room...

The Olympic is an institution in Vanuatu. I stay there every three to four months fo business. The location is perfect for me being in the heart of town. Most of the rooms are large & self contained. Free Wireless internet is a big bonus for any commercial traveller. The satff are always helpful & friendly & currently the rooms...

The Olympic got great service and is really a clean hotel to an affordable price. The standard is of what you might expect on any european hotels. The friendly girl at the counter even recognized us from our last visit and we`ll be back at another occation. The cons are that the internet connection is among the worlds slowest and...

Reviewed 9 March 2011

We booked into the Olympic for two main reasons: because it was downtown (which we generally prefer); and because a large double room with a/c for under 8000VTUs seemed excellent value for money compared with all the resort hotels which surround Port Vila. Being downtown offered a choice of places for breakfast and dinner (not possible if you're staying in...

Working close by I had intended to stay in the hotel for seven weeks. Ordinarily, I think it would have been adequate for that. My room, with its kitchenette with microwave, electrically heated frying-pan, toaster, kettle, etc. (but no stove or oven) functioned more as a serviced apartment than a hotel room which suited me well. The place is well...

We stayed two nights her at different times and in different rooms.

A nice, basic hotel that provides an adequate stay. The best thing about the place is its location in downtown Port Vila, and was a step up on other downtown hotels. The staff is very friendly, as everywhere in Vanuatu, and assisted with anything that you needed. The only pitfall is that the walls between rooms are thin and you...

We stayed at many places in Vila but one of the best value for money was The Olympic. It was Quiet because of the solid walls and the rooms were clean, lovely and cool and central to the middle of Vila. We would definately return. Sonja and Phil.
