Decor, ambience and service from greeting to goodbye were faultless. the hotel is situated close to the stations and most things are within walking distance, if not a quick cab ride. You can easily take the train from the airport and walk 6-7 minutes from the station to the hotel. The roof top pool is huge, but then again it... More

Exceptionally helpful and caring staff. No concierge service needed as all the staff helped us so much. Lots of attention to detail and made our honeymoon extra special. Great location as well as a great restaurant on location.

We had a lovely stay in Olivia Balmes in May. Hotel is located very close to some of the main attractions in town and is on a Metro line. We walked to the city center, Plaza Catalunya & Las Ramblas as well as to the La Sagrada Familia. There are also many nice restaurants around for fine dining. But more... More

We have just returned from a trip to Spain and we spent the last four days in Barcelona. The hotel was well located and we were upgraded to a modern comfortable room. The best part of our stay was the helpful, friendly staff. We were particularly impressed with Josep who suggested sights to visit and booked them for us to... More

The hotel was superb in all ways. Staff are helpful,. rooms are very cleaned and well decorated. But, rooms are narrow, and there are no wash clothes. Bring your own. It is in a nice area of Barcelona .

This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in anywhere. I liked the staff, the room and the neighborhood. If I ever come to Barcelona again, this is the only hotel I will consider. Great hotel!

We spent a splendid week in Barcelona in June. This was our Honeymoon and we mentioned that to the hotel before our arrival. The first impression with the staff at the hotel was perfect, they greeted us and served a glass of cava. Overall the service at the hotel was top notch. Our room was tidy and modern and we... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
