This is our favorite hotel in Europe. Perfect location, great staff, excellent value. We had a suite facing the plaza (I think room 606). Everything was excellent from the bed to the pull out sofa, to the a/c. Very clean and contemporary. Will stay here again.

Stayed at the hotel for just one night, end of oct. Was travelling alone and it was so easy to get to the hotel..as soon as you get out of the airport , i found buses waiting and in a few minutes i was on the way to plaza catalunya! The bus stops you just a few metres away from the hotel and no problems finding it!

The lobby area is quite small but nice and modern. Staff were great, and one could always find security bythe main door! Had a room on the 6 floor, modern,amazing views! Breakfast was quite good and unfortunatly late check out was not available in my case ( i understand this as i work in hotels)..only thing i didnt understand was..if i wanted to charge my mobile throughout the night, i had to leave my living room light on...its like if you turn off the lights, all the sockets in the area wnt work..so had to sleep with the living room light on to charge mobile( or maybe i was doing something wrong!).

Room Tip: Had a suite on the 6 floor, great views, big room, no noise!

I spent three nights here earlier this month. The location can not be beat: it's a 45-second walk from the Aerobus stop. I was greeted warmly by Daniel a reception and given the key to my room on the seventh floor. The room turned out to be a three-part suite with a picture window over Placa Catalunya.

The amenities were fantastic: nice linens, great toiletries. The sofa in the sitting room was comfy though there was no reason to sit there when I was smack in the middle of town.

The staff was beyond friendly and I will absolutely try to stay here the next time I'm in Barcelona.

The good: wonderful location, excellent view (city side), beautiful property.

The bad: horribly inadequate heating and cooling controls, poor lighting, dirt in room corners, lots of street and construction noise.

Room Tip: Your choice: view or sleep.

Amazing location, lovely room, excellent view and very helpful staff.

We were very pleased to find just how central the Olivia Plaza was. We arrived 2 hours early and were checked straight in with an upgrade to a room with a view of the Plaza Cataluña, amazing! The room was clean (and kept that way throughout our stay), the bed was comfy and the shower was powerful. As mentioned in many other reviews, the set up of the rooms is slightly different, the almost open plan bathroom could be a little uncomfortable if staying with someone you don't know that well.

We did not pay for breakfast as it seemed a little expensive but it did look like a good spread whenever we passed it.

If you are looking for a central hotel, near the tourist bus, areobus, metro and La Rambla then this is the one for you.
