“Olivia Plaza Hotel- First Class!”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Wow! Stunning hotel, friendly and helpful staff. The location is excellent, especially for first timers to Barcelona. Transport to and fro Barcelona airport is cheap using the Aerobus, 6€! Tickets are purchased at a stand next to the Aerobus, lower ground floor at T1. They can also be purchased on the bus for the return journey. If you're using Terminal 1, take the Aerobus T1, if using Terminal 2, then use Aerobus T2. No one else uses the bus except airport travellers, it's clean and not cramped. The buses terminate centrally in the Placa Catalunya which is at the top of The Ramblas. Lots of high street named stores, bus tours, beautiful beaches and lots to see. You can take the Metro underground 2 stops from Urquinanona to the Barceloneta beach or the no 17 bus. The Metro takes approx 10mins and the bus approx 25 mins. The Olivia Plaza is really spacious, clean, the rooms serviced well and the prettiest dining courtyard with a glass bottomed floor! I would highly recommend and definitely visit again!

Olivia Hotel was fabulous!! Fantastic location in plaza Cataluna. Central to everything.. La Ramblas, shopping, cafés. So easy to get to the airport (aerobus just outside). Tour bus is a must.. Again right outside. The plaza connects to La Ramblas, at the heart of Barcelona. The hotel itself is stylish, chic and sooooo clean! The staff are legendary. So helpful and friendly. Absolutely love it and will defo be staying there time and time again!!

in the heart of the beautiful city Barcelona, at the center of Placa Catalunya square. you find everything around you and easy access to any place in the city.
The staff are friendly, and it feels the warmth of home with all that you may need in a hotel.

Room Tip: take the AeroBus from the airport and it will drop you just in front of the hotel

Great central location on Plaza Catalyuna, easy access to many of Barcelona's attractions. Good modern rooms, friendly helpful staff. Attractive indoor-outdoor eating area, and excellent buffet breakfast - omelettes made to order and any hotel that puts cava on the breakfast buffet gets my attention!

Our only advice would be to try for a room away from the main square - rooms fronting onto the square can get a bit noisy.

Room Tip: try for a room not fronting onto Plaza Catalyuna - a bit quieter

Located in the very buzzing plaza catalunya which is very touristy and full of restaurants. The metro station is a 5 min walk and the city tour operators are just down the road 100 meters away and if you go around the corner you're in Ramblas which is pretty much the essence of Barcelona..It's the perfect boutique hotel and the rooms are impeccable overlooking plaza catalunya! Can't find any faults really so will definitely be staying here the next time I'm in Barcelona

If you're visitting barcelona for the first time, and you wanna see the beauty of the city, it is a perfect hotel. You can find a taxi easily. Metro station is a five minute walk " we took five minuets because we had a toddler with us" and the plaza is right across the street. Plenty of restaurants and cafes, plenty of starbucks, and supermarkets, pharmacies.. etc. the only bad thing i can think of about the hotel, is that they dont have or provide a water boiler in the room. which was very important for us since we had a 2 years old child with us that drinks baby formula, but if you call the restaurant they will get you some warm water free of charge. another fault for me is that they dont have an iron in the room, and cannot provide one "hotel policy" they said, but you can send your clothes to be pressed with extra charge.
