The location is absolutely wonderful. The rooms are very nice and big for European standards. We had a wonderful view of the piazza from our room. The staff is great and recommended different things for us to do. I highly recommend this hotel.

We just stayed at the Olivia hotel for 2 nights. The room we were in was beautiful, as it had a panoramic view of Placa Catalunya. The hotel is in a very central location. Metro is just a few seconds away from the hotel, and it is surrounded by numerous shops and cafes. La Ramblas is just round the corner. Excellent Hotel and highly recommended.

The breakfast is a little expensive, but cafeteria is just outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Room 906 is a must :)

We visited the hotel in the beginning of August. We used the Aerobus that takes you directly outside the hotel. We arrived at 12:00 at noon ant the Receptionist kindly asked as if we can wait until 15:00 to give as our room. It worth the delay since the room was great on the 10th floor with a great view. The only bad thing was that it was not 100% clean but still it was nice.
The breakfast is also great and of good quality. The Wifi was good but not constant.

The hotel is a couple doors away from the Hard Rock Cafe and faces Placa de Catalunya (City Center). The Aerobus from the airport drops you off just around the corner. The location was very convenient and a short walk to La Rambla and exploring the many interesting streets of the Barri Gotic. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. The view of Placa de Catalunya from our balcony was definitely a highlight of our trip.

The hotel is very conveniently located at Plaza Catalunya and within walking distance to Las Ramblas, Museu Picasso, Barri Gotic and the high end Eixample district. The staff is very friendly and always greet me with a smile. I was given a room on the 7th floor overlooking Plaza Catalunya and so had a great view. The double room comes with a huge bed with comfortable bedding.

There is a cafe immediately next to the hotel so it comes in handy for a quick charge of caffeine. The Carrefour Supermarket is about 10 minutes walk from the hotel.

The layout of the bathroom is very open, and one needs to strip in the room before getting in the shower stall. No problem if travelling as a couple but may be inconvenient for a family or friends.

We stayed at the Hotel Olivia July 28th to August 1st. Room 308. Took the Airport bus that dropped us off in the Square. Hotel Olivia is just across the square, a very convenient location to explore Barcelona. That room was great, I really cannot see why some individuals were complaining about the glass doors, the shutters and the lights. Can only believe these were tourists from the good old USA. Everything worked perfectly and were in immaculate condition. The receptionists at all times were very very helpful, the doorman also and the house cleaning staff. I really cannot say anything negative about the hotel nor location as we were extremely satisfied and we plan on returning befor the year is over. Thanks to all of the wonderful staff

Room Tip: Room 308 was overlooking the square and we never heard any noise even though I thought the whole of...

The room is simple good for the price and what if offers is great the location amazing in the center of everything but the internet as for my expierence in my room was impossible. I was in the 8 floor in a corner and i needed to go outside the room to catch the signal, a poor and slowwwww one, why is this, simple the internet has noo key and everybody i mean everybody can us it even in Plaza Cataluña there is free public wifi but even this people take the hotel signal easy faster and less crowded but that makes the guest in the hotel suffer fot the conection. But if you go to this wonderfull city dont wait and stay in Olivia but if you care about internet stay in the first floors.

Room Tip: ask lower levels looking to cataluña square or upper level looking at the sea but suffer internet pr...

Dear GuillermoSarah,

Thank so much for sharing your experience with us. I'm sorry you had trouble with the WIFI signal during your stay. Here at the Olivia Plaza we think that Internet is a MUST nowadays, and that´s the reason we offer free WIFI throughout the hotel as well as we do have a space on the mezzanine to work with both, WIFI and the Internet-connected computers available to customers.

I talked to the Maintenance Department, and we will work to find out a solution soon to this problem taking your feedback into consideration.

Besides that, I'm glad you had a really nice stay with us and in our city. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you again!

Best regards,


Ricardo Samaan
Guest Relation Manager
