“One of our finest experiences ever...”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We had a fabulous experience!!! The hotel and staff were great. We especially want to say great things about our experience with Rebecca. She was a consummate professional and not only took care of us like we were family, she consistently went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable.

Highly recommend this hotel, and suggest you see Rebecca if you have any issues or concerns. She is the best!

The property is beautiful and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. In particular, Ms Rebecca Alonso from the Front Office was wonderful. She was most professional, knowledgeable and helpful with all our special requests and made us feel welcome straight away. Thanks to Rebecca, who did go above and beyond the call of duty - we had a fantastic time and made our stay at the Hotel Olivia Plaza the highlight of our trip. We will definitely be back!

I don’t normally write a review on places I stop at, but I am making an exception this time. The reason for this is because our recent weekend away was fantastic from the moment we booked in until we checked out. The staff are very friendly and offer great customer service. We had no complaints about the room we stopped in as it was clean and tidy.
On arrival the hotel had left a bottle of Champaign and chocolate coated strawberries in our room as a surprise for my wife’s birthday, which went down very well with he wife:)) also the view from the room was fantastic as it overlook the square, especially at night!!
Overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely stay here again. Thank You

This hotel is on Las Ramblas. The rooms were very modern, streamline and clean. We had double twin beds which were perfect for me and a friend. The staff were polite and helpful. We will certainly stay here again. The staff made excellent recommendations as to places to eat. They also made our reservation for the flamenco show in the area. This was fantastic.

We stayed for 5 nights and had a fantastic time!! This hotel is in the perfect location to get to everything in Barcelona. Rooms were big enough. Novel bath arrangement but shower was nice and everything worked well. Only negatives were no washcloths and woefully slow of nonfunctional wifi.

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.
