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

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...

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

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.
