Wow! Stunning hotel, friendly and helpful staff. The location is excellent, especially for first timers to Barcelona. Transport to and fro Barcelona airport is cheap using the Aerobus, 6€! Tickets are purchased at a stand next to the Aerobus, lower ground floor at T1. They can also be purchased on the bus for the return journey. If you're using Terminal... More

Olivia Hotel was fabulous!! Fantastic location in plaza Cataluna. Central to everything.. La Ramblas, shopping, cafés. So easy to get to the airport (aerobus just outside). Tour bus is a must.. Again right outside. The plaza connects to La Ramblas, at the heart of Barcelona. The hotel itself is stylish, chic and sooooo clean! The staff are legendary. So helpful... More

Great central location on Plaza Catalyuna, easy access to many of Barcelona's attractions. Good modern rooms, friendly helpful staff. Attractive indoor-outdoor eating area, and excellent buffet breakfast - omelettes made to order and any hotel that puts cava on the breakfast buffet gets my attention! Our only advice would be to try for a room away from the main square... More

Located in the very buzzing plaza catalunya which is very touristy and full of restaurants. The metro station is a 5 min walk and the city tour operators are just down the road 100 meters away and if you go around the corner you're in Ramblas which is pretty much the essence of Barcelona..It's the perfect boutique hotel and the...

Hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly. All speak English. Rooms are clean, well appointed and roomy. Restaurant has great view. Food is delicious with excellent service. Great location right on the Plaza de Catalunya so close to La Rambla and a short walk to the Barri Gottic area. The hotel went out of their way to help us celebrate... More

It's the perfect choice to be just moments away from Modernista Barcelona, Las Ramblas, the financial and shopping districts and the best museums.

The hotel combines style, comfort, quality and personalized service to provide all guests, whether business or pleasure, with the best possible service. Its privileged location allows guests to walk to Barcelona's most emblematic monuments, as well as to the city's best shopping areas. Likewise, it is very close to many public transport options so guests can move around the city or to and from the Barcelona Airport, with the Aerobus just outside the hotel. At Olivia Plaza Hotel, YOU are the center of Barcelona. Olivia Plaza Hotel belongs to the Olivia Hotel group, alongside Olivia Balmes Hotel, in the center of Barcelona in the Eixample, and the Cava & Hotel Mastinell, a 5-star enotourism hotel in Vilafranca del Penedes.
