The checking in process was very good and the reception staff were excellent and very welcoming. We were very surprised to have a bottle of Fizz on ice with chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us in the room as a birthday gift from the hotel. Fantastic touch thank you so much it made a great start as we arrived. The... More

Great mid-range hotel with very pleasant and welcoming staff, comfortable and clean rooms and in the heart of the city. Located at the top of La Rambla, less than a mile walk south to the beach. Our room had a great view of Plaza Catalunya across the street and coming out of our room we had a spectacular view of... More

Just as most of the other reviewers have written , the hotel really could not be faulted on location, cleanliness and most of all its well trained staff. I would highly recommend this hotel for someone who wants to stay right in the centre of Barcelona.

The hotel is excellent. The staff are absolutely first class and friendly. The room was very good, especially with the view over the square. All in all a great stay. I would recommend this hotel to anybody.

...Well - it was for business during the mobile industry's annual zoo attended by 93,000 mainly white, male, middle-aged professionals on expenses (like me). So, hardly surprising. But it's a great location on the Catalunya Square at the top of the Ramblas. Loads of shops nearby and the "glamour" of the famous tree-lined boulevard round the corner. It's comfy, welcoming...

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

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.
