“Hotel Olivia earns it's stars from it's employees”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel is right in the middle of Barcelona so it is very handy for the tours to everything. It is beautifully decorated for a small boutique hotel. The rooms are not huge so look carefully when you book but they are very well designed and comfortable.
My wife and I are from Canada and came in to the hotel at night on the end of a great upscale holiday in Spain and were greeted wonderfully and taken care of by Rebecca as she checked us in. During the 4 day stay I was always greeted with a smile and the attention to every need by Laura and Rebecca and the concierge was a great treat for me as I travel a lot and don't see it enough.
I had mentioned to Rebecca on the first night of a small problem I had and the next day the Manager, Señor Nacho (spelling?) sought me out and went wayyy out of his way to make sure that I was more than satisfied. I have to recommend this hotel highly due to the staff that make the stay a great experience. Well done. And btw, I know this may sound like a phoney review but I believe that good service deserves compliments.
PS: Use the hotel's electric bikes, it is a great way to get around.
Cheers,

Room Tip: Higher is quieter as the hotel is the main square that is crowded, but the hotel is quite quiet anyw...

My Husband treated me to this hotel as a 40th birthday gift. We arrived very early on the Friday morning room wasn't ready but they told us to return at 1pm, we returned and we had a room over looking the square, spectacular view and the bed was very large and extremely comfortable. I have never stayed anywhere quiet like it before. The breakfast was lovely and the staff were all so friendly, We only had 3 days in Barcelona, the bus tour is a must, fantastic and you see the whole city. I hope to return, I just hope it won't be for my 50th!!!! Sooner rather thank later. A big thank you to Marc Camps the manager.

Some kind of hotel in the center if the city. So nice and organized, all staff were helpful, the only thing we did not like is the noise coming from the street in to our room which is in the first floor.

We really enjoyed our stay in Barcelona ,it's a lovely glamorous city as well we enjoyed our stay with the Olivia plaza
We stayed their for 3days two nights ,1st we had a small incident then Mr. Marc camps the director & general manager of the hotel did all what he can to make us happy,relaxed & enchanted in our vacation
He is really one of the best managers I had ever seen in my whole life with his sense of respect & hospitality .. My family & my self are used to 5 stars hotels but with this hotel & this superb type of management you would just feel @ home .
I've to mention the location of this hotel is the best.

This hotel is in a fantastic location. We took the shuttle bus from the airport and the first stop was at the square outside the hotel. We walked everywhere. The hotel is clean, modern and bright. The hotel gave us a complimentary upgrade and we were very pleased with our room. It was bright, modern and had a small living room. The bathroom was well designed and had excellent amenities. A complimentary breakfast was served in a bright sun room.

We stayed at this hotel in early April 2015 for three nights. The hotel is located steps from La Rambla, near Plaça de Catalunya, where you can buy tickets for and board the ho-ho buses. The hotel itself was very clean with good sized rooms (for European standards). We had an inside room, i.e., away from the Plaça, and it was very quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We ate breakfast there a couple of times and it was very good. We'd definitely go back.
