Two nights here on my own - loved the spacious room and bed ! Right in the middle of the action. I was exhausted when I arrived and loved watching the city from the comfort of my room. Staff always helpful - I had an issue with the bank and they were very helpful printing documents, faxing, etc. Breakfast OK.

We stayed foe three nights in this wonderfully central hotel. We booked a wheelchair accessible room and whilst the bathroom was a little bit tight we managed. The hotel is fabulously central and just around the corner from Las Ramblas. The staff are genuinely nice and extremely helpful.
We will definitely visit again......highly recommended.

Room Tip: We had room 314. Only fault is that it was internal and had no window that opened for fresh air.

Recently returned from a 3 night stay at this hotel. Very spacious room we had a city view on the 4th floor and were not bothered by the noise, that some reviews mentioned was a problem. I have to say the bed was the most comfortable I've experienced difficult to leave. Location perfect for exploring the city and good transport links for the airport. Highly recommended hotel.

Room Tip: City view on a high floor

Pros: We loved the location, the modern decor and the view from our room.
Cons: There was only one lift working which was a bit annoying when we had to wait for it to be free as we were on the 8th floor.
Location: It is beside the Rambla, shops and lots of nice restaurants. The tourist bus leaves from just outside the hotel as does the airport bus.
We were delighted with this hotel. We didn't realise just how good the location was when we booked it. It is just beside the Rambla which is the main pedestrian area in Barcelona and it is in Placa de Catalunya which is where you get all the main transport links. We paid extra for a superior room and were well pleased. As we entered the room the blind automatically went up revealing a view over the square.

Wow! Stunning hotel, friendly and helpful staff. The location is excellent, especially for first timers to Barcelona. Transport to and fro Barcelona airport is cheap using the Aerobus, 6€! Tickets are purchased at a stand next to the Aerobus, lower ground floor at T1. They can also be purchased on the bus for the return journey. If you're using Terminal 1, take the Aerobus T1, if using Terminal 2, then use Aerobus T2. No one else uses the bus except airport travellers, it's clean and not cramped. The buses terminate centrally in the Placa Catalunya which is at the top of The Ramblas. Lots of high street named stores, bus tours, beautiful beaches and lots to see. You can take the Metro underground 2 stops from Urquinanona to the Barceloneta beach or the no 17 bus. The Metro takes approx 10mins and the bus approx 25 mins. The Olivia Plaza is really spacious, clean, the rooms serviced well and the prettiest dining courtyard with a glass bottomed floor! I would highly recommend and definitely visit again!

Olivia Hotel was fabulous!! Fantastic location in plaza Cataluna. Central to everything.. La Ramblas, shopping, cafés. So easy to get to the airport (aerobus just outside). Tour bus is a must.. Again right outside. The plaza connects to La Ramblas, at the heart of Barcelona. The hotel itself is stylish, chic and sooooo clean! The staff are legendary. So helpful and friendly. Absolutely love it and will defo be staying there time and time again!!
