Great experience without actually staying at the hotel!!”
This hotel is the BEST at communicating with their guests even before they arrive! The staff has a heart and are very thoughtful. I didn’t even stay there and I was so impressed. THAT is what you call service. I will tell everyone. 2 days before I checked in to the hotel I r’cd a call that my mum had passed. I emailed the hotel who advised that b/c I booked with Agoda I had to cancel thru them. The hotel constantly wrote me emails of comfort and even reached to Agoda on my behalf to assist me with a refund. Agoda you were not nice. It was an extenuating circumstance despite the type of booking. I can produce the death certificate and was hoping for a full refund. The Olivia Balmes hotel will get my booking directly when next I visit Spain. Sadly, Agoda you and your team will not get any good reviews from me. Your service to me was not considerate during my time of unexpected grief. The hotel Olivia gets 5 stars and more. Regrettably Agoda gets no stars.
Thank you very much for your comments and assessment. We look forward to greeting you again on your next trip to Barcelona.
Great spot in a bustling location”
I wouldn't want to stay in Eixamples area for long, but it's nice for part of a trip, and Olivia Balmes is a terrific choice in the area. The staff are very helpful and the hotel is surrounded by great places to eat, drink, etc. Be careful about restaurant recommendations, though--I asked for a booking and was told the place I'd chosen was "touristic," which was great info as I wasn't looking for a tourist experience, but the substitute the hotel chose for me was totally touristic as well.
Excellent hotel and staff, highly recommended.”
The Olivia Balmes actually surpassed our expectations of a good hotel. The staff at the Hotel were the highlight as they made our stay comfortable and very easy in a city we were visiting for the first time. I can't emphasis how exceptional they were in helping us find our way around, to recommending excellent restaurants and finding us transport. The hotel itself was great too with modern, stylish and very clean rooms. The laundry and cleaning staff were super efficient too. Location was decent as well, being just a 10-15 minute walk away from the centre of the city and having a number of great tapas another restaurants around the corner. Pro tip: Ask the reception for some great restaurant recommendations. Thoroughly enjoyed the stay and will be looking out for Olivia Hotels for our future stays.
We were very pleased with our stay at the Olivia Balmes Hotel. The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful and the location was perfect in having close proximity to the activities we were interested in doing. Our next visit to Barcelona will definitely be spent at the OB hotel. Many thanks!
Had a wonderful time over the long new years eve weekend at Olivia balmes hotel.”
The service at the olivia balmes hotel stood out way above the norm. 5 Star level professionalism and courtesy. Joseph, reception manager, was especially helpful for us as first timers to Barcelona. Restaurant was superb both in food quality and service. We loved it here. I'll always come back to olivia balmes when in Barca.
fantastic stay at Olivia balmes”
Staff at Olivia Balmes are really fantastic. Extremely helpful, and always smiling. We enjoyed our stay at Olivia Balmes hotel. It is a modern hotel, clean and comfortable. Rooms are well sound proof. You can't hear the road noise even though it is next to a busy street. The only thing to improve on would be the pillows. They were a bit too soft for me.
Great location- walking distance to most sights. Great restaurants all around the hotel. Hotel staff so welcoming upon arrival and helpful during the stay. Hey even upgraded us to a larger room when we checked in!!! That was so nice of them. The pool is amazing to relax after a day of sightseeing. Next time we come to Barcelona we will definitely be staying at Olivia Balmes!
20 min walk from Placa de Catalunya”
My first hotel option was sold out so I opted to take a chance at Olivia Balmes Hotel. It is a 20 minute walk from Placa de Catalunya which can be far for some. I personally did not mind the walk. There is a train station across the street and ample buses within a few minutes. The room was well designed, very clean and comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
Honeymoon Trip in Paradise”
Olivia Balmes Hotel greets you with a glass of champagne on check-in (which was a rather nice touch). The service was also excellent, and the room was quite comfortable. We did not get to explore much of the facilities available because we were always out in the city with it being walking distance to major attractions. A value for money, comfortable stay.
Olivia Balmes Hotel was wonderful. Near city center but away from the more tourist centric areas such as La Rambla. Easy walk to the Gaudi Building and the Segrada Familia. Wonderful breakfast and although cool/cold, the rooftop was gorgeous at night looking out over the city. Highly recommended.
Great Hotel and Staff”
What an incredibly friendly and helpful staff! This was our first time staying at the Olivia Balmes Hotel when in Barcelona, and it will always be our hotel of choice in the future.
Quiet location near center, great staff”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Olivia Balmes. The staff, especially Lenin at the front desk, made us feel at home and were very helpful. The room was airy, chic and modern. Location was good as well- close to the shopping area and bus stop.
Loved everything about the Olivia Balmes and will definitely return when next in Barcelona.
Excellent stay this weekend at Olibia Balmes. My husband and I stayed for two nights and would rate this hotel highly. The staff were fantastic and really made us feel welcome. The pool is small and lovely, with an excellent bar which serves food all day (great food). The room (600), a suite, which we paid an upgrade for was lovely - all the rooms are nice, with not much difference between a design room or superior room. The suite however had a small balcony, and larger bathroom, plus divide to small sitting room which definitely made our stay more comfortable. Not many English language Tv channels, but not a problem - we came to sightsee so didn't watch much TV. The walk into Sagrada familia was about 20 mins, and same to main tourist area (museums/cathedral). All past nice shops/dining venues. We didn't have breakfast at hotel (not in our room rate), but are at a cafe 2 mins walk just right out of hotel (€15 approx for 2 person, compared with €15 per person at hotel). There is a gluten free bakery opposite the hotel if you have coeliac disease, and hotel I think are good at accommodating food choices. We ate out each night - 1st on La Ramblas which not great so I forget the name, 2nd at a nice restaurant booked by the hotel called 2254 - had a taster menu (very high quality - approx £55/person). The price for this hotel is fairly standard for a luxury hotel in a major city, so have rated a 4 star for that as reasonable value for money but not excellent. The food was great, but the staff are just fantastic, and the rooms clean and well made up huge bed, just some areas where a bit tired (one small area of peeling wall paper in the suite). L Overall I would recommend a weekend stay, great for couples.
Very good hotel”
Had a great time at the Olivia. From the time we checked in until we checked out, it was perfect. We only had a few days to do everything. At check in, Joseph (the tall one, apparently there are two), got us a great room. Better than expected. He was extremely helpful providing suggestions for the "must see" sites and some very good dining options. The day we checked in, it was my wife's birthday. Joseph surprised us with a bottle of Cava when we returned from dinner that evening. I rated the dining as 5 to give the benefit of doubt. We didn't dine at the hotel at all. Although it was a bit more than we intended to spend, we would certainly return to this hotel on a future stay.
Everything is execellent ”
We stay at this hotel for 10days at its was our first time in Barcelona and everything was extremely excellent and we are so happy that our stay was been so wonderful the staff neither the employee really very hospitable,friends and they are are enthusiastic serving all there guest. These people we will not forget as they bring so much good exemplary in this hotel like Josep,Godson,Alberto,Reda,Paola and many to mention. They are always willing to extend there assistance and help and you always see them smiling. This kind of people are the best employee that can be the best assets in the industry or in this hotel. They spread the kindness and warmth feeling to there guest. The food is delish and fantastic from breakfast to lunch. One thing we only concern is that the walls gap in the room to another room maybe quite thinner as we can here the sounds to other room esp when the housekeeping start to clean but overall is perfect. I hope they can able to read our message to them as me and my husband are really happy and pleased staying in this hotel bec of them. We will definetly share and recommend this hotel to others and will surely be back staying here in this hotel. Thank you for making our stay great.
We stayed here for a weekend trip to Barcelona. It was a great location in Eixample, the hotel is modern and comfortable and the staff were fantastic. Absolutely loved our stay
Hotel was amazing, clean, quiet and in a great location. After checking, we were pleasantly surprised that the hotel sent up a bottle of champagne and a desert plate as a honeymoon gift to congratulate us on our recent wedding. My wife and I spent every night on the beautiful roof top patio before and after going out to enjoy the nightlife in Barcelona. Location of this hotel is amazing! Walking distance to amazing cafes, restaurants and all the tourist attractions! Would definitely stay here again when visiting Barcelona. Staff made it such a pleasant visit! Thank you!
Everything you need in a perfect hotel! ”
The minute we stepped into the hotel, we were greeted by great service, brought to the restaurant for a nice glass of Cava while our rooms were processed. The staff never fails to greet us everyday and are always so warm and helpful. The subway is right at the door step with Passeig de Gracia just right next door. The rooms are clean, spacious and modern. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone heading to Barcelona!
Great place to stay ”
This hotel is in a great location, 10 min walk to La Rambla and lots of lovely restaurants on your door step. The staff are what makes this Hotel a five star experience, helpful friendly and extreemly accommodating. Lovely rooms with a great rain shower. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Barcelona.
