Very friendly people at the front desk, at the restaurant and bar. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated. If you are not used to Europe hotels, it is very noisy in the corridors, but it is pretty much always like that. The location is fantastic, close the taxis line up, buses, walking distance to so many good restaurants, etc we... More

The hotel itself is well situated, central at placa de Catalunya, making it easy to reach everything in Barcelona. Reception and staff are very welcoming. The only major problem is housekeeping. Rooms are not well done, beds not made correctly, we had a bed cover nicely put over an unmade bed, the shower tray was never cleaned in our 3... More

We spent 2 nights at the Olivia Plaza Hotel prior to a Mediterranean Cruise. The hotel couldn't have been better located. It is on Playa Cataluña, right in middle of tourist area. The Ramblas starts 1/2 block from the hotel, many tour busses stop within 1/2 block of hotel and others within 2 blocks. The desk staff were very friendly... More

We had a group stay at the Olivia Plaza before heading out on a cruise. Its location was ideal to walk the streets of a fabulous city. There was a huge selection of hot and cold entrees on the buffet breakfast, so we all left satisfied to start the day. Staff were attendant and helpful.

We stayed at Olivia Plaza for one night respectively pre- and post our Mediterranean Cruise. From the airport we took the 20min bus ride to catalunya plaza and within a 2min walk you are at the hotel, so don't waste your money on a taxi. Las Ramblas is literally around the corner as well. The hotel is modern and comfortable.... More

Nice Hotel, Nice Location After a recent transatlantic cruise we decided to spend a few days in one of our favorite cities, Barcelona Spain. There are many hotel choices in that exciting city so it took some time to make a selection. We wanted something that was close to Las Ramblas, modern and moderately priced. The Olivia Plaza Hotel met... More

We arrived early off a cruise ship and expected to only be able to store our luggage until our room was ready. They had an upgraded room they immediately assigned to us. It was spacious, modern, comfortable and even had a balcony. I LOVED this room and its modern atmosphere and eco concerns. Even though we only were able to... More
