About these Venice hotel pages:
We've included customized Google maps that you can zoom, rotate, or drag for better views.
If you see a conflict between our directions and a hotel's, rely on ours. (Hotel sites are often years out of date.) Ditto for maps: Our icons are hand-placed for accuracy, while GPS-based labels can be off by a street or more.

Walking directions to
Best Western Hotel Olimpia
Powered by iMapBuilder
ABOVE: The Best Western Hotel
across one small bridge from the Piazzale Roma. (The
People Mover to the Marittima
cruise terminals and Tronchetto parking garage is shown at upper left.) BELOW:
The Olimpia has a large garden where breakfast is served in the warmer months.
Best Western Hotel Olimpia occupies
several historic buildings with a private garden next to the Rio delle Burchielle, a canal that
isolates its quiet Santa Croce neighborhood from the hustle and bustle of the
Piazzale Roma. It's a convenient hotel if you're arriving or departing by plane,
bus, cruise ship, or bicycle. (Bike parking is on the premises.)
How to reach the Best Western Hotel Olimpia from the
Walk toward the tree-lined side of the Piazzale Roma.
Continue through the trees to the water.
Turn right onto the fondamenta or sidewalk
along the canal.
A few meters ahead, you'll see a food kiosk just before the
Tre Ponti (three bridges). Bearing left to stay by the main canal, walk past the
food kiosk to the bridge.
Cross the bridge and immediately turn right. Walk past the
Arlecchino (a sister hotel that we also recommend).
- The Best Western Hotel Olimpia is just beyond the
tiny cross street by the Hotel Arlecchino's entrance.
From the railroad station:
As you leave the train station, turn right and follow the
crowd toward the modern Calatrava Bridge.
Cross the Calatrava Bridge (officially named the "Ponte
della Costituzione") to the Piazzale Roma, then follow the directions above.
From the Marittima cruise terminals:
Take the People Mover elevated tramway to the Piazzale Roma.
Once you're in the Piazzale Roma, follow the directions
