“Spotless, excellent location and very modern.”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We stayed here for a belated anniversary. Only mentioned it when checking in. The hotel upgraded our room without knowing and the first night got a wonderful surprise in our room. Chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne with a lovely happy anniversary note. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The ensuite was very modern like the rest of the hotel. Location was perfect. Overlooking the square and a perfect view. Would definitely stay here again and recommend.

Had a fantastic stay mid December. The location of the hotel is perfect. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Even left a bottle of wine and some strawberries as it was my birthday. If I'm ever in Barcelona again, this will be the place I'll be staying.

This hotel is lovely, beautiful and is characterized by an excellent location. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Breakfast is limited but could be suitable for those who are in diet. Everything was fine however the noise of that busy street can't be solved for the first floor rooms. Anyhow Barcelona is a great city and Spanish people are so kind so nice and polite, I like them all.

Room Tip: Customers staying in the first floor rooms could be suffering from the street noises.

This was a lovely hotel right next to Plaza Catalunya. 2 minute walk from the airport express bus. Metro stations are 2 minute walk away. Lovely coffee shop next door. Really close to Barcelona Cathedral. Staff were wonderful and the room was comfortable and had everything I needed - very modern. Loved it - highly recommend!

We stayed in July 2013 - as this seemed to be the most popular month it was more expensive than what I would normally pay, however it was worth it!

The location was excellent - only a few minutes walk from the main shopping district and La Ramba which made it really convenient for a weekend break. The room itself was clean, modern and bed very comfy. They also made excellent use of the space (try finding the shower when you go in!) I would definately consider staying here again.

When my friend and I checked-in at the hotel's standard room, we were quite surprised to find it small in size, with an awkwardly looking pillar in the middle of the room, while the separation of the toilet and the shower isn't ideal if you are sharing a room with a friend, as there is no privacy. However, after our feedback to the Front Office Manager, Martha, she was kind enough to upgrade us to a top floor, superior room. It was definitely better than our experience at the standard room. We had a great view of Plaza Catalunya, a door that provides privacy for the bathroom area, although the toilet and shower were still separated. But if you are open to contemporary style hotels and great location, then this is the hotel for you! In addition, service at the front desk was excellent, as the whole Front Office team was always hospitable, friendly and helpful. One of the Front Office staff even walked us to a nearby ticket kiosk when we wanted to buy the tickets to the Sagrada Familia. Martha, the Front Office Manager has certainly set a great example to her team. Stayed 4 nights and would choose the hotel again but would stay at the superior top floor room.

Room Tip: Choose a superior room or suite as a standard room is quite small and not comfy to move around.

My husband and I stayed at the Olivia Plaza as a part of our honeymoon, and we really enjoyed it! It provided a GREAT base for sightseeing (right on Plaza Catalynya), and the staff was able to answer all of our questions. The room was comfortable and well appointed, and we really appreciated the extra gift for our honeymoon. The breakfast service was delicious as well!
