No better location and extremely convenient for people who are using the Aerobus. Very near La Ramblas, Passeig de Gràcia, all major shops, Catalunya metro station, etc.
Staff was very friendly. Hotel room was very comfortable and clean. We got a room on the highest floor and enjoyed superb views onto Placa Catalunya!
Safety was a big concern for us when we were booking a hotel. Originally we were looking at hotels on Passeig de Gràcia but chose Hotel Olivia on Placa Catalunya because of the convenient location. Turned out to be a great choice. We felt safe walking back to the hotel even around midnight! It is true that there are many pickpockets in Barcelona but as long as you take the necessary precautions and are aware of your surroundings at all times, you should be fine. We did not feel unsafe in the Metro or La Ramblas. I chose not to bring my DLSR because I was afraid of being a target but in retrospect given the amazing photography opportunities in Barcelona I regret not having done so.
Just a tip to other travelers - shops are NOT open on Sunday. Do not make the mistake we did and plan for Sunday as shopping day. The only mall open on Sunday is the mall near the Harbour.
