Olivia Plaza is a very nice, modern and stylish hotel that couldn't be more centrally located for tourism. It is right on the Placa de Catalunya where Las Ramblas starts, the tourist buses gather and the Aerobus from the airport drops you off. But being right on the Placa means you hear how popular and bustling this place is at all hours of the day and night if your room overlooks it. Interior rooms are MUCH quieter and highly recommended. The staff are very attentive and nice and the breakfast is pretty good. They have a nice enclosed but open to the air patio where breakfast is served.
We stayed in a standard, interior room the first night - quiet but very small (but highly functional). Good for one person but cramped for two. After that we upgraded to a suite. These are very luxurious (by European standards) featuring a jacuzzi tub large sitting room and full floor to ceiling views. That's the good and the bad. Doesn't matter how high a floor you are on as sound travels up through the placa.
If you want to be right in the thick of things, this is the place to stay. If you are looking for something less busy, go into Barri Gothic.
