Hotel Olimpic is just 50m from the town centre and 200m from the ski lifts, in front of the Sestriere Sports Hall, overlooking the splendid slopes of the Vialattea area, offers its guests the opportunity to spend a holiday in the high mountains, dedicated to sport, relaxation and good food, in a family environment.
The rooms of the Hotel Olimpic, modernized during the change of management (October 2015), are furnished in a simple and comfortable way. The restaurant offers tasty traditional cuisine, accompanied by excellent local and national wines.
This hotel comes it the does exactly what it does on the tin! Right on the slopes with basic family accommodation - a wee bit spartan but well laid out and with nearly everything you need. A few essential items were missing when we arrived pillow cases, covers etc for the pull out bed but were found for us. Pull out bed not very comfy for our 12 year old. No kettle in the room, no kitchen cloths or dishcloths which was a pain and obviously no wifi in any of the rooms. Room could have been cleaner (behind pull out bed had been ignored for a while) so loads of dust. The location could not be better and the ski lock area is well thought through. The cafe is excellent and well priced the restaurant we never used as it seemed overpriced for what it offered. We were there just before Easter and it was very busy with school kids running about the hotel after a busy day skiing so be aware it is not a place to chill. Anyway for a family for 4 ( 13 and 12 year old) on our fist ever ski trip is was on the money!
Good hotel for the price - The hotel is located in central Sestriere a short walk from the slopes. It is a three star rated hotel and has mostly plusses with one minus. One of the plusses is the food. For the price we found the food in the evening to be of a very high standard. Second plus were the staff, all of whom are very friendly and helpful. The bedrooms are clean and acceptable for this class of hotel. The décor is a little dated. The only negative I think worth mentioning were the beds, these are unforgiving, unless you prefer a hard mattress. Hotel is overall good value for money.
Very nice stay. Amazing dinners. We were staying here for our skiing trip. The hotel is in very good location. Everything was super nice. The rooms is very clean and really comfortable. The food was more delicious than we could expect. Dinners and service were absolutely amazing. But the most important thing that made us feel so welcome here, is the people that work here. These are the people that love their job. We want to thank everybody and especially Simon and Daniella for such kindness. We will really recommend this place for others that go to Sestriere. Thank You guys for making our vacation so special!
Fabulous ski holiday accom - We had an absolutely brilliant time staying at Olimpic hotel for our weeks skiing in Sestriere. Simon (Templar) and Daniella were such fantastic hosts. Simon provided many laughs and good humour over dinner and they were both always around to help out and did a fanstastic job serving us at the restaurant each morning and night. Daniella made good strong cocktails. The dinners were fantastic, we were expecting a buffet and turns out there is not only a salad/vege buffet but also a three course meal each night, rediculous amount of delicious food, the chef did a great job. The rooms were comfortable and perfectly adequate for the week, they did tend to get a bit hot at night but nothing an open window can't fix. Only gripe perhaps would be that you need to buy water of an evening, perhaps this is the norm in Italy. But cannot fault anything else, pics do the place justice and also being able to leave your skis at a rental shop near the mountain is perfect. Great hotel, fantastic food, lovely staff. Thanks so much for a great week!!!
Friendly hotel and excellent food It's taken a while to write this review, we stayed in January 2019. I stayed at the hotel with 4 others. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The staff are really friendly and they make this hotel such an enjoyable stay. They always have time to have a chat and ensure everyone is happy. Breakfast - very good choice. No hot food but there is enough choice from pastries, to fruit to cheese and ham. There are two coffee machines so no queuing. Dinner - all my meals were excellent. You choose your 3 course meal the night before and there is a antipasti buffet. I rarely had room for dessert as the starters and mains were so tasty and filling. Cost of wine is also reasonable. Rooms - comfortable bed, plenty of hot water. I asked for an extra pillow and it was immediately provided.
Excellent breakfast and good location. 3 minutes walking from the town center and 10 from the slopes. They also give you the opportunity to leave your gear in a ski rent right on the slopes for free. The room is very small though. But a very good price quality ratio overall!
Lovely hotel with great service. Particularly like the conservatory looking out over the mountains - the perfect spot to enjoy the afternoon tea and cakes on offer. The hotel is well located for accessing the ski lifts.

Sestriere is part of the Vialattea ski area, an international ski area that includes 7 other mountain resorts all connected to each other. The other locations are Sauze d’Oulx, Oulx, Sansicario, Cesana, Pragelato, Claviere and the French Montgenèvre. They offer 400 Km of slopes: more than 249 runs (7 green ones, 80 blue ones, 120 red ones and 42 black ones) and 70 lifts. The ski area is vast and varied, thus able to meet all expectations. Either alone or along with one of the 800 ski and snowboard instructors from one of the 14 schools in the area you’ll discover how unique these places are, the tracks, slopes and the paths that twist and turn between the firs and larches… and why not, relax and enjoy a nice glass of red wine or an extraordinary traditional dish in one of the lodges in the ski area. Italian cuisine lovers won’t be disappointed in the Vialattea villages; more than 30 lodges give comfort to the skiers who prefer to stay out on the slopes all day without giving up their deserved break in front of a typical dish.
