The location could not better. The room was nicely furnished and the bathroom facilities are quite unusual, but very functional with a great shower. The breakfast buffet had many choices and the quality of the food was excellent. Lovely roof top area with beautiful pool and gym. The employees were helpful and always pleasant. I would definitely stay at this... More

Our welcome to Olivia Balmes warmed my heart. Mr Narcis is outstanding at his job, our luggage was lost, he made us forget all about such things. Our room was perfect, with my favorite, the balcony. The bed was large and so comfortable and the linens soft. Very nice bath, soft towels and plenty of toiletries. The housekeeping staff are... More

My husband and I visited Barcelona in May 2016. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel which was clean, conveniently located in the heart of the city and one where the staff was super helpful. Although the rooms face the main road, it was not noisy. The breakfast is great but on the expensive side. There is a wonderful... More

Staff very friendly and helpful. Great room and breakfast good. The roof terrace is a good place to relax, it has a nice pool and gym. Also like their environmental ethos. It is well situated for visiting the sites in Barcelona with a Metro station outside the hotel.

Check in was great complete with complementary champagne! And entering and leaving hotel one could not fault the staff attentiveness, door opening and beckoning taxis. Great hotel from that point of view. Location was ok, 7 blocks to Placa de Catalunya the start of the touristy areas, which I thought initially was disappointing but the crush of tourists and locals... More

The hotel itself is modern and new, with beautiful interiors. The room is properly soundproofed that you don't hear any noise from the nearby roads, and is relatively spacious. Joseph from the concierge in particular was very helpful in guiding us for directions and securing tickets for various attractions. Only downside is the room layout as the toilet, sink and... More

The Olivia Balmes actually surpassed our expectations of a good hotel. The staff at the Hotel were the highlight as they made our stay comfortable and very easy in a city we were visiting for the first time.

Lovely hotel in a fabulous location in one of the nicest parts of Barcelona. Rooms were extremely modern and well maintained, and spotlessly clean. All staff we encountered were well trained and friendly.

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.
