We arrived at Olivia Balmes Hotel early morning following a Mediterranean cruise. We had originally planned to just leave our bags as we were aware check-in wasn’t until the afternoon. We were greeted by Josep who arranged a complimentary welcome drink and a croissant while he checked to see if our room was ready - which it was! As this was our first time in Barcelona, Josep took his time to explain a map of the city, and highlighted the ‘must see’ locations whilst giving us directions how to get there. The hotel was centrally located for exploring the city. It was close to lots of good restaurants and bars, which Josep gave us some good recommendations for tapas and paella. The room was spacious for three people, modern and had good facilities. The pool area looked nice, even though we didn’t get chance to use it. Breakfast was varied and of good quality. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine and a discount for dinner in the hotel restaurant. The weather was hot, and we were offered a bottle of water when leaving the hotel each morning. For us, this hotel went the extra mile to ensure their guests have a very comfortable stay, it made the experience more personal. Those extra touches made such a difference and all the staff we encountered were polite and helpful. For our next trip to Barcelona we will be choosing this hotel again, and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona. Thank you to all the staff at Olivia Balmes Hotel for a fantastic stay!

This is such a great place. Rooms are smart, spotless and functional. Breakfast is plentiful, the roof top pool and gym are a real bonus but what makes this hotel stand out are the staff. Professional, multi-lingual and attentive, nothing os too much trouble, Within minutes of my arrival, I had a welcome drink in my hand, a list of 9 restaurant recommendations plus an offer to sort my pre-departure COVID test, Thank you Josep Highly, highly recommended.

Good location, nice interior design, private parking places and a roof-top swimming pool. Overall it’s a good stay. Price-performance wise it’s worth a 4-star hotel. However we notice that there are still details not well taken care of. For example the extractor (for ventilation) on the ceiling is full of dust; the stool is completely worn out.
