I recently stayed at the Olivia Balmes Hotel in January to visit my daughter in Barcelona. I was only staying for the weekend, traveling solo and had never been to Spain.
First, the hotel is centrally located, close to transits, cafes', Las Ramblas, and many other parks and locations.
Second, the hotel was spotless. The design of the hotel is boutique like and modern/sleek. The rooms are layed out very different and can be disconcerting at first. A glass partition seperates the shower/bath/bidet from the rest of the room but it works nicely with the space.
Toiletries and amenities are provided and the beds were extremely comfortable.
There's a bar /restaurant in the main lobby that serves good food and splendid cocktails, (had a delicious cosmopolitan)
Third, the hotel staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Lenin, who greeted me at the front desk after a long transatlantic flight, made me feel welcome and pointed out places I could visit after freshening up....a great tapas bar was what I needed.
My daughter and I spent a lovely weekend in Barcelona and Olivia Balmes was the perfect place to stay.
In the future when my husband and I visit Spain, we will be staying in the Olivia Balmes.
Only this time my visit will be longer than two days....I found Spain, the food, the people, the architecture and Barcelona to be beautiful!
