A family easter break in Barcelona was made all the better by the friendly and polite staff. Special mention for the member of staff Godson who was always very helpful with tips to make our city break everything it could be. His brilliant command of various languages was also something I noticed as after speaking to us in English, he put a couple to ease answering their questions in French. I have removed one star for the hotel not having any element of the hot breakfast prepared to order such as scrambled eggs and hot porridge, little things but this did take away from the experience but everything else was gorgeous including the lovely bottle of cava waiting on our arrival.

The service from all staff at the Olivia Balmes is excellent. They made our family celebration extra special. The rooms are clean & modern. The location was perfect for accessing all Barcelona & the rooftop pool was a bonus. We would definitely stay again.

Great stay. Fab staff, rooms comfy and big enough. Location also really nice with lots of restaurants within easy access but calm. Didn't try the breakfast, pool area and gym very nice to have. Thoroughly recommend. Only caveat is that walls are not completely soundproofed, we were kept awake late by next door room having TV on late, as it's mounted on dividing wall. Parking available 22 euros a day which is fair but cheaper available e.g. H clinic provenca Interparking, download their app for rates down to 12 euros per day.

I stayed the weekend in Barcelona between two business trips in the region. The hotel and the location was great. What makes it a top hotel for me was the service. The reception was the nicest and most professional I’ve met in a long time. Asking how I was, opening the door, printing and scanning, giving advice. I saw them giving this service to everyone. And the breakfast - excellent. I did not try the rooftop pool but it was open as well as the gym.

Visited Barcelona, stay here for 4 night, it was a amazing experience for me and my bestie... Hotel location is near City Centre, very comfort. Receptionist at counter very friendly and always there for you.. We reach earlier before the check in time at 12nn, our room is ready and room was upgrade to suite. I request cake and flower before we reach Barcelona since my bestie birthday, the make it so special beyond my thought. Tq for the great experience, definitely we will come back again to this hotel, strongly recommended

Great stay. Staff were very warm and welcoming and ready to help wherever they could. Lovely clean accommodation! Breakfast was good, however some changes in the morning menu would benefit especially if there for a longer stay. Very nice hotel! Great service!

I really like this hotel, not only because of the nice and clean rooms and its good location but also because of the awesome staff at the front desk. Walid helped us find a doctor when my daughter got sick, Josep recommended many nice restaurants, and Adrian always warmly welcomed us back to the hotel. They consistently answered my questions and provided a lot of assistance. I'd also like to express gratitude to Cintia and Kaur for cleaning our room every day.

Excellent customer service, especially from Walid and Javier. With the booking made to celebrate my birthday, staff were friendly and went beyond to accommodate this and make it special. Rooms were spacious and clean, with great facilities. Rooftop pool area was great to relax in and gym looked good too. Fantastic hotel in a great location within walking distance of many restaurants, shops and excursions. I would definitely stay there again.
