Which Hotel...Royal Ramblas or Olivia Plaza??


We will be in Barcelona for 5 nights prior to a cruise. I have narrowed my accommodation choices down to the Olivia Plaza on Plaza Catalunya and Royal Ramblas on Les Ramblas.

The Olivia is closer to the transport/bus hub however Royal Ramblas is actually on Les Ramblas. Are they or equal merits or is one closer to restaurants/activites? I appreciate any advice or suggestions.

Both are close to most everything... they're a stone throw away one from the other.

Both have equally good locations, but I've heard great things about Royal Ramblas so that's the one I'd go for! Enjoy your cruise and stay in Barcelona!

We stayed at the end of last September, for five days at the hotel Royal Ramblas in Barcelona. Our bedroom was a bit small, but well-furnished and set. The double bed was comfortable with real pillows.

The well-equipped bathroom was surprisingly large considering the actual room’s size. The hotel was clean with a pleasant atmosphere. The staff were friendly and helpful. The food at the restaurant at the hotel was good but prices were on the high side.

The hotel location on the La Rambla road was very practical with many amenities, shops , restaurants not far away.

Overall it was a comfortable smooth stay, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this hotel to others.
