For a hotel that looks so impersonal. the Hotel Olivia treats you as if you are a best friend staying in the one spare room. They know who you are at all times. My partner and I share a birthday and when we checked in, although this was the day before, it was remarked upon by the receptionist. After dinner... More

We booked this hotel for the last leg of our 2.5 week Spain trip and we were glad we did it! We were so tired of moving around and walking too much, so the central location fit us perfectly. Just 100m to the left of the hotel entrance was La Ramblas and the Catalunya metro station. The city hop on... More

The hotel is located at plaza catalynua. From there you can go by foot nearly everywhere (besides park guel and Montjuic) and there is a metro station one minute away. The aerobus (bus from/to airport) is right in front of the hotel. Rooms are spacious and clean, breakfast is awesome (one of the finest omelates I have ever ate in... More

This hotel really blasted all my expectations, very polite staff, excellent location and the rooms are of a very high quality. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a hotel that's convenient for sight seeing as it really is in the middle of everything.

This hotel was really great. First the location is just fabulous, right in the heart of the city and less than a block away from the airport shuttle bus stop. The staff was wonderful and polite. The hotel itself is just very chic, modern, and sleek. The beds are very comfortable. The view of the street is great and with... More

Last week we visited the Olivia Plaza Hotel for the 6th time. We choose this hotel again and again for the perfect location. Straight on the Plaza de Catalunya, half a minute walking from department store El Corte Ingles (love to come here for sales). Underground, busses, taxis, hop-on-hop-off and the Aerobus to the airport are in front of the... More

Location is excellent , just walk till all main objects and transport stops. Rooms are not good for friends, especially bathrooms are not good designed. If one person is using toilet, then to take a shower is impossible. Glass wall is not best way of design, in other hotels design is much more better and comfortable. Cleanness of rooms should...

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

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.
