Ratings/reviewsClick for full ratings

What we really like about the Hotel Olympia is the lovely staff and their friendly service. It's about 500 metres from Arabba centre, which can be walked in roughly 7 minutes. There is a great heated ski locker room you can use by the Burz ski lift, so you don't have to carry everything. The walk warms up the ski legs nicely, and you can just pop your ski boots on when you get there.

We'd recommend using the hotels sauna after coming back from the mountain. The restaurant serves good food, both breakfast and dinner. The hotel bar is nice and spacious. Its a good place for a drink in the evenings if you're not venturing into town. The hotel has a traditional Alpine feel throughout which we found gave it a nice warm character. It's slightly above the town, so you can get some really great views of the town and the mountains. Great for that holiday picture to make your family and friends envious.

Ski Holidays in Arabba

Of the resorts that make up the celebrated Sella Ronda circuit, Arabba has some of the most interesting slopes, and is a real skiers’ holiday base. It boasts excellent, challenging pistes, and the stunning slopes of the mighty Marmolada glacier are within easy reach. The highly recommended Hidden Valley is close by too. Part of the spectacular Dolomiti Superski area, the modern lift system ensures Arabba links easily to the Sella Ronda, with Canazei in the Val di Fassa to the West, and Corvara in the sunny Alta Badia ski area to the North. This compact, friendly village has a natural ice skating rink and a small selection of shops, bars, restaurants and pizzerias. Après-ski is low key and relaxed, the skiing anything but! The fast 'Ornella' run down to Pescoi is one of the big thrills for local skiers – and one of the biggest local challenges.

Facilities

There is a bar in the hotel to enjoy an evening drink and a small lounge area. The restaurant is where you will have a great breakfast and evening meal. It's Alpine decor and charming team make it a lovely atmosphere. There's a sauna to loosen the muscles after the day on the mountain. We felt reassured that you can book a massage or other treatment (pay at hotel), whether to soothe or just relax. The warming boot room next to the ski lift is so ideal. The short walk down the hill gets the legs nicely primed and you can then just squeeze on those boots near the lift. And of course it means less to carry. There's wifi in the hotel, is there anywhere without these days?

Meals

Fuel up for the mountain with a selection of continental items and hot options like bacon and scrambled egg. The staff are all so lovely and make meal times enjoyable. Come the night you'll tuck into four different courses from the menu and salad buffet. The traditional alpine features and furnishings certainly made it a charming place to enjoy our meals.
