I am just back from a 3night stay in Barcelona staying at the Olivia Plaza. Location is excellent, on the Playa de Catalunya square with metro, bus's only yards away & La Rambles only round the corner. Checkin was quick and easy, the receptionist acknowledged that we were here for a special occasion (my boyfriends b'day) & shook his hand.... More

Olivia Plaza Hotel has an excellent location on Placa de Catalunya. The airport bus has its arrival/departure point just 150 meters from the hotel door, the Ramblas starts 100 meters left from the hotel door and the old town, El Barri Gotic is just a short walk away. We had a superior room on the third floor, facing the Placa.... More

The hotel is right on Plaza Catalunya, next to Ramblas where you want to be visiting Barcelona. The buffet breakfast is well arranged. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are strange with an attempt at being modern. The one sliding door into the shower and toilet is annoying as is the plastic floor. My room overlooked the noisy... More

I was here during a business trip off two day's. It was also during the world cup football 2014. The food was perfect, the service was great and the hotel room was also perfect. In the neighborhood there are a lot of shops. Just a minor thing: As a foreigner you are asked frequently if you need something. From drugs... More

I was here for about 5 days with my father and the stay was extremely pleasant. It's right on the plaça catalunya and besides la ramblas so the location is wonderful as well. The hotel staff made us feel right at home and went out of their way to make our trip memorable. Marc and Laura were wonderful hosts to... More

We stayed there only one night for our "second wedding night" after our second wedding party (at the hotel also). Yep, we had two parties as we are from different parts of the world and we couldn't get all our families and friends together in one plane. Our friends gave us as a present one of the junior suites with... More

We were here over the Christmas Holiday. The staff made us feel like we were home. "Tito" at the bar was so funny and could not have treated us any better. Our room was large and comfortable. Very modern and had a GREAT shower large enough for my 6'4 husband! The Olivia Plaza is located in a perfect spot. Walking... More

Service staff is very friendly and the location is the best in town. Walking distance to literally all the Shopping Locations which any Lady would desire. Rooms are nice and modern. Hesitant to share this review as I want to have the hotel all to myself :-)

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
