A small, modern hotel close to everything but not in the middle of it. The staff, sharing advice on what to visit, where to eat and having umbrellas to share when the rain poured and booking taxis, efficiently and with no effort stands out.

The hotel was modern and comfortable with a beautiful rooftop outdoor pool and deck area. It was an easy walk to sights or to the metro for places further afield. The staff was very, very helpful. A great place to stay in Barcelona.

Modern business hotel with easy access to the city , very good service and fabulously quiet. Lovely pool up top that's under-utilised at this time of year. View not quite what we wanted but you can't have it all. Bed very comfy and I'm picky. Rooms look exactly like the picture. Would choose the brand again. Placa catalunya next ....

From the moment we checked in until we left everyone was so friendly & helpful. Great experience!! We were offered a glass of Cava on check in due to our room being delayed. Which was all of 10 minutes. Great for walking around.

Even if the poolarea was small, it was enough space for the amount of guests that were there at the same time! Very nice area! We didn't eat in the restaurant, but it looked very nice! Very friendly & helpful staff!

A wonderful hotel experience. We began our two-week trip to Spain at the Olivia Balmes in Barcelona. After spending time in Madrid, Toledo and Sevilla we returned to Barcelona the day before our flight home. We had the initially booked another hotel for our last night here but had so enjoyed our first stay that we cancelled the other reservation...

The staff is very friendly and the room was quite spacious and comfortable for the price, and also quiet. The location is near the Passeig de GARCIA, which means you are within walking distance of most of the interesting areas of Barcelona

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.
