Very strategic location close to restaurants and metro stations. Very convenient when going or coming to airport because Aerobus stops few meters away from hotel. There is also a big department store close by for shopping. Most enjoyable for us is eating in the market or boqueria. Very fresh seafoods for grilling to go with cava or wine.

Good modern hotel”

location, modern, value

I had a pleasant stay at the hotel. The concierge was very helpful with booking restaurants and tourist attractions while the doorman was also very helpful and friendly. Rooms were modern and clean. One peculiarity would be the bathroom which had no door and if you stand in front of the sink (which one would, considering you cannot get change in the shower), your roomie could very well see your reflection from the mirror. Location is great with a cafe right next door and all shops within 2 minutes reach. Taxi stand is also only a few steps away from the hotel entrance.

Perfection”

We had 8 nights in Barcelona and initially wanted to stay at different districts. Due to the hassle of moving luggages, we decided to just book one hotel and i guess by sheer luck, we booked Olivia Plaza. The airport transfer which cost 5.90 euros one way stopped 2 mins from this hotel at the plaza Catalunya. So that was amazing. Upon check in, it must be another stroke of luck that we met marko/marco who gave us a map and brief us on everything good in the area. This hotel is at the intersection of 2 main shopping streets. La Rambla to the left, Passeig de Gracia slightly to the right. Everything you wanted to buy in Barcelona, i suppose you could find it within walking distance. It is also a short 2 mins walk to the train station. So getting around is really convenient. Now for some cons. If you don't like people, then this hotel being in a busy district is not for you. As mentioned by some other travellers, things do break down in the room. The 1st room we stayed in had a crack in the glass. Cold air was coming in. We were upgraded to other room the next day. The next room had a creaky toilet door. We spoke to the reception and they repaired it while we were out. And they offered us another upgrade to a plaza facing room! This time we declined because we were already comfortably settled in the room. So while things do break down, service recovery was prompt and sincere. Barcelona is a walking town and from this hotel, i believe you can get to many of the attractions that Barcelona has to offer. Good hotel to explore the city from. Without a doubt, i will stay here again.

We had a very pleasant stay . Upon arrival the porter met us with a very big smile and carried our luggage. The front office staff was very welcoming,helpful and efficient. Again the same porter took our bags to our room. It all took lees than 15 minutes. Wonderful ,as we just arrived from a 14hour flight. After unpacking we went downstairs to the restaurant where we had an excellent dinner. The waiting staff were terrific . Nothing was too much for them. Afterwards back to the room which was a decent size.., very clean and the bathroom had all the amenities. The breakfast buffet was very good. There were many choices. Again the waiting staff here were great. Coffee was excellent! The checking out was very efficient . Highly recomment this hotel

Hotel is located centrally in Plaza Catalunya. Tours usually start from this point. Shopping and restaurants are located walking distance from the hotel. For improvement, they can improve soundproofing of rooms because I can hear people adjacent tobis and even the people staying above us.

Centrally Located!!”

Location, Staff, Convenient

Olivia Plaza hotel, was centrally located however it was just a left turn away from the la ramblas stretch. Infact we were very happy that it was not located in that stretch. As during the peak season the street la ramblas gets very crowded. So Olivia plaza is at a perfect location. All the staff members are very helpful and they helped us through out our trip. This hotel is close to every where all the shopping malls, restaurants, the hop on and hop off buses and the airport buses are just the street across. Even a taxi ride to various areas such as the spanish village or the picasso museum are not very expensive if there is four of you sharing a cab (Approx 3 euros per person). However the restaurant staffs were a bit slow at service. Housekeeping staffs are alert as we had a stain bedsheet and we asked the housekeeper to change it and the change was done immediately. Overall very satisfied with our stay and we also recommended this hotel to another fren. Oh we also got an upgrade with a nice view for free.

Great location, big room, very clean

The value is higher than it's cost. I was very happy to find a hotel like this. In a great location, hard rock is just right next to the hotel. And it is also cost to Metro , supermarket, stores, restaurants, super cool! Room is quite big , very well designed, convenient and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel. Except the wi-fi connection is not very well in the room. Not sure if it because of my room's location. Maybe next time I should try another room. yes I definitely will like to stay in this hotel again next time in Barcelona. Their staff speaks English too, it is helpful.
