Barcelona, Spain50 contributions10 helpful votes
During this complicated times, and before the weekends confinement took place, we decided to spend the weekend in Barcelona. I can tell you that everything was perfect. We felt safe and welcome. We had a beautiful room facing Balmes street with a lot of light, the food was great and they gave us a bottle of cava for free. Furthermore, we were allowed to make a very late check out. Very good value for money.

We’ve stayed here twice now and we’ve loved every time. The staff are excellent - attentive and welcoming. The hotel is away from the tourist areas, but within easy walking distance, some very good restaurants are a short walk away, as is the tour bus (when it’s running). Our most recent stay was during COVID, but the hotel was very clean and safe and many tourist attractions are empty, we haven’t had to use for anything, so more time for sightseeing / eating /drinking. Now is a perfect time to visit Barcelona.

My fiancee planned our trip to Barcelona and this was the hotel that she picked for our stay and was I ever glad! The service at this hotel was second to none. This was an extra special trip for us and staying here made the trip even more special. Before heading to Barcelona, we began searching for tickets to an FC Barcelona football game. We were searching for months and were unable to secure tickets to a game... Needless to say we were pretty disappointed heading to Barcelona without tickets. When we got to Barcelona, finding transportation from the airport to the hotel was effortless. We were able to catch the train from the airport and with 2 transfers we were outside the Olivia Balmes hotel. Upon entering, we were greeted by Alexei at the front desk. What an amazing and helpful gentleman. He inquired if we knew what sights we were going to visit while we were here, we told him our plans and he had some fantastic suggestions (Mont Serrat) which we followed and were grateful for his advice. We also told him that we were hoping to get tickets to a football game and he immediately sprung in to action. He asked us what seats we were interested in (with a seat map of Camp Nu), we told him what we were interested and he called, secured and had the tickets delivered to the hotel the next day!

Excellent service and attention. The location was great, most tourist attractions are at walk able distance, there is also public transportation near and there are multiple restaurants and places to eat near by. You can also request taxis to take you directly to the airport with the hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for a few days and returned for our second trip to Barcelona. The staff is phenomenal from the front desk to the doormen and bartenders and especially the housekeeping staff. We loved the rooftop pool area which also offers a great view of the city rooftops and the sun set. The location of the hotel is perfect. You can walk almost anywhere you want to go, public transportation is very close by, or the hotel can arrange a taxi if you need a ride to the airport for an early flight. Highly recommended. We will be staying here again.
