We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It is im downtown Barcelona near the metro and everything you need. It is on the fourth floor of a gorgeous old building and you ascend in a quaint old elevator. Our room was a corner room, huge big windows a little noisy at night. Definitely a great experience.

Perfectly located in best part of town on a famous street, this establishment is on a 4th floor in a l930's builiding. Elevator is the old varnished wood with bench seat to sit whilst elevator takes it time climbing to top floor- wonderful!. Hostal is no frills, no meals offered, but you don't need that when so many tapas bars... More

Hostal Oliva was a wonderful,very affordable find in a most interesting area of Barcelona. After two full days of sightseeing I looked forward to returning to my little home away from home. An extra bonus was having two windows which opened onto the sights and sounds of Passeig de gracia. I felt welcomed and very safe at all times. Loved... More

Travel weary after 2 weeks moving around the Costa Brava, our last night was spent at this little gem. Modernista architect Gaudi has buildings nearby, also plenty of cafes. Airport transport, taxi rank and Metro all very close. English was spoken by a housemaid, while the friendly lady owner had none. A little bit like stepping back in time, esp.... More

Hostal Oliva is located in a stunning modernist building in the chic and salubrious area of L'Eixample. I absolutely loved the location. Passeig de Gracia is a mix of high end designer fashion and high st chains while trendy boutique shops line the off streets. In the midst of this are cute cafes, gourmet restaurants, small art galleries and much... More

Hostal Oliva is a great stay right in the heart of Barcelona on Passeig de Gracia. Well-priced, clean and warm and quiet! Access is via a panelled/glass elevator for two, or three at a pinch, and you have to press the buzzer so Signora knows to release the lock.

Located just blocks from Las Ramblas and Placa de Catalunya, this gem is affordable, clean, safe and modern. You are buzzed in by the 24 hour staff at the street level, let into the fourth floor and given your key. No breakfast included but many good places nearby. Also, we ate at three very good tapas places within a couple... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
