I had a trip planned with a stay at the Olivia Plaza Hotel (Superior Room) in Barcelona Spain in September 2011. I had emergency surgery on August 28, 2011. I contacted the hotel to let them know what had happened and asked for a refund of my $600+ dollars. To date they not even responded to my request. I understand that this is a very nice hotel. It is sad they treat people the way they do! My bad luck!

Loved this hotel! I was already on the check-out page of another hotel when I had doubts and ultimately switched to Hotel Olivia and I'm glad I did! The location is nothing short of perfect at the Placa Catalunya and just around the corner of the famous La Rambla. The rooms have a beautiful, contemporary design. Fantastic shower! My room had Plaza view which is great. Despite that it was nice an quiet at night. Bed was big and comfortable. I'm not sure how it would be with children but I'm sure other reviewers will cover that. The only thing I missed was a coffee/tea maker in the room and it was a tad short on closet space.

I didn't use breakfast in the hotel. When I went down to get coffee it looked good but I'm not sure it's worth the E17.50 price.

The staff is friendly, courteous and helpful and speaks English well. On the whole my stay here was a very pleasant experience. I would book again.

Room Tip: Plaza view on the 5th floor was beautiful and very quiet at night.

Reviewed 27 March 2012

Stayed in this hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of March. The location is perfect if you want to be in the centre of the city, you are steps away from the Ramblas.

We stayed in a standard room, facing away from the Plaza (be sure to request a Plaza facing room if you want one). The view even from the back of the hotel was lovely. The bed was very comfortable, and the room had all the amenities you would expect.

One minor point is that the carpet was a little strange, made of a material that clearly showed mrks of bags being wheeled across it - I would question how they keep it clean. There is also very little storage space in the rooms, if you were to stay at the hotel for more than 2-3 nights, you would struggle with hanging and storage space for clothing.

We did not try the restaurant/bar, although they looked lovely. The wifi is free and worked reasonably well.

The staff were polite, and helpful when we had any queries.

The hotel is on the expensive side, but you are paying for the central location. I would consider going back on another visit to the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Plaza if you want one - windows are floor to ceiling in all rooms so great...

I recently planned a business visit to Barcelona for about 22 people. We needed a hotel that would work with a group, had English-speaking staff, was close to public transportation, and in the proximity of good restaurants for dinner. We found all that and much more at Olivia Plaza. Olalla, the Events Manager, and her colleagues made the experience unforgettable. We enjoyed the modern and spacious rooms, but it was the friendly and accommodating staff that made our stay so enjoyable. Olalla, in particular, went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs and to handle every detail in the most friendly and professional manner. I plan visits like this in different countries every year. This was the best hotel experience we have had on any of our visits. We will be back!
