5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2012

One of the best hotels I have visited. Great view of square. Good food. Modern furn. Friendly staff. And By walking around you will find more than 50 interesting things to do. Like food, tour bus, shopping malls, ancient culture, la Ramblas street, dealer, hard rock, etc.

Olivia Plaza is the most perfect hotel you can imagine in the combination with the lovely staff, a very nice kitchen with both breakfast and proper food, perfect cleanliness, very nice and big rooms with everything you can possible need and the most perfect location. It cannot be better.I can imagine going back to Barcelona just because of the hotel!!

Best Regards,

Had a great stay here for christmas with the family. Central location, modern justified 4 star hotel, friendly staff. Our room was large and comfortable with a great view and no issues with noise despite the very central location. Buffet breakfast was varied and good. Overall we thought very good value for money and would definetely consider staying here again on a next trip to wonderful Barcelona.

Picked the hotel for 3 reasons - larger rooms than typical in Barcelona, free Wifi, and location. None disappointed. Airport bus stops right outside and metro is near, but hotel as other reviewers say is very quiet. Staff very pleasant, rooms immaculate, lots of storage space and wodnerfull showers. Room spacious, light and airy, (and onky a standard room, I think) good bed and terrific view over the Plaza. we stayed four days over Christmas and it was good value. Only ate in the restaurant once - breakfast was OK but obviously hotel prices and there are much better places down towards the old town. Our one dinner was good if unremarkable. Wifi signal weak in room (8th floor) but very good in public areas and computer area was nice.

Room Tip: ask for one with a view over the Plaza - ours was 8th floor

We recently stayed at Olivia Hotels for the first time, besides being right at the center of the City, the hotel was very well taken care of and their staff was always very helpful in any questions and needs we had.
We were staying at one of their suites, the room was very nice, comfortable beds and pretty big considering such a centered location, showers were very nice and with all the amenities needed..
Our room had a full wall window view of Placa Catalunya.
Very charming hotel and right at the heart of Barcelona, you can walk everywhere or take any subway, bus, train since you have the main station within 2 minutes walk.

We will be back.

Don't expect huge rooms unless you're booking their suites. The standard rooms are small but fantastically designed to make good use of space.

The best feature of this hotel is, without a doubt, the shower. They are monsoon style and simply wonderful.

The bar downstairs is useful as it's open late, staffed by a friendly team and usually quiet in the evenings.

The hotel location is ideal for checking out Barcelona -- it's right on Plaza Cataluna and about 100 paces from the top of Las Ramblas and the underground.

The internet has always been a problem. Some rooms have excellent WiFi reception, others not. So be explicit with the team when you check-in if you're needing a decent connection.

Located in the Plaza Catalunya, you can't stay a more central place in the city. Best for city dwellers. Good rooms, good breakfast and helpful staff.
