Grand Hotel Olympic
The Grand Hotel Olympic is a 3-star Rome hotel in the exclusive district of Borgo on the west bank of the River Tiber. The area has a long and fascinating history, mainly due to its proximity to Vatican City. Wealthy, important families have settled here since the days of the Empire, meaning that there are many historic, impressive buildings in the area surrounding this family-friendly Rome hotel.

Five minutes in the opposite direction will take you to Parco Adriano on the bank of the Tiber, where you can visit Castel Sant’Angelo, the mausoleum of the Emperor Hadrian. For photogenic views of the dome of St Peter’s Basilica, cross the Tiber by the Ponte Sant’Angelo footbridge dating from the 2nd century AD, taking time to admire its famous Bernini sculptures of angels holding instruments of the passion.
The Grand Hotel Olympic is a former papal palace decorated in the elegant manner of turn-of-the-century Art Nouveau, with stylish antique furnishings, eye-catching mirrors, and original artworks. Wake up each morning to a delicious free buffet breakfast offering continental favorites and local specialties, then linger over a coffee in the comfortable lounge bar while you plan your day. The hotel staff are always on hand to help book tickets or tours, suggest must-see attractions, or recommend good restaurants in the vicinity. They can also arrange a shuttle service to the airport.
