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.

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.

Helpful and informative staff
We would definitely recommend this hotel. The staff were very friendly and professional. Josep on reception was extremely helpful with our enquiries. We loved the location in a calmer more Spanish area of Barcelona yet only 2 minutes walk to the tourist busses and some of the attractions.
