“Amazing stay”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

Writing this from room 810....great room, join the membership program for free before you check in and you will most likely get upgraded. This hotel could not have a better location...exactly in the middle of the touristy ramblas and the great restaurants of the exaimple. We literally got off the bus from airport and were right at the hotel....couldn't have been easier if it tried. Room is awesome, especially bathroom and staff is really friendly...could not recommend enough! Saw lots of hotels while here that I had looked at before picking this one and didn't see one that I wished I had booked instead

Room Tip: 810 is a great room! View of the square, quiet, beautiful room!

This was my second time at Olivia Plaza over last few Years. The hotel rooms are simplistic, yet well designed and very comfortable, free WIFI. My room was clean with almost no wear and tear and one of the best rain showers I have recently seen. I do like the modern bathrooms with open space to the guest rooms. A few things for the hotel to work on is the free WIFI code that you must enter into your device almost every time you want to sign in. My room 103 had an interesting view, but was next to the service entrance, where staff was banging the door all morning and I could not sleep, this should not happen. Also did not find the staff overall friendly. All together, you can not beat the location of the hotel and it is for sure value for money. Book them direct!

Room Tip: Rooms with Plaza Catalunya Views are nicer.

We spent two nights before and one night after our cruise vacation. The Aerobus (airport bus) stop, Metro station, Tourist Information Center are just across the street. Popular restaurants, major shopping district, La Boqueria Market are all within easy walking distance. Staffs are very polite & friendly, especially Fernando at the Front Desk. The Room we had was small, but functional and very clean. One thing is Hard Rock Café just next door of the hotel, so groups of people crowded outside the hotel whole day long.

Room Tip: Rm # 311 was very small, only has a single panel slide door for both toilet and shower. (Maybe this...

Very modern hotel facing Catalunya Sq. i cannot fault the location as we were able to walk everywhere. The Aerobus stop is literally over the road.

Service is good, very polite & friendly.

Rooms are spacious & comfy. I love the rain shower. Only thing i didnt like was although hotel was very contemporary in design, there were lots of snags in the room - floor was cracked by sink, shower door has no internal handle so difficult to slide & tears in carpet.

Overall very good, safe location.

We spent at Olivia Plaza hotel 5 days during October. It is a nice, clean and modern hotel in an excellent location. Everything is easily accessible - main tourist spots, restaurants, shops, subway etc. Friendly staff, clean, quiet and modern room with a nice view. Only food was average - we decided to eat outside.
