Olivia Balmes Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was fantastic. I booked because of a reasonable rate and the other good reviews. This hotel is very good. The hotel staff is very friendly and helping. They all had a smile and greeted us everytime they saw us. The hotel is clean, modern, hip, and cool. I really enjoyed the 3 nights here. The rooms are very modern and mine had a nice view out to the street below. I would definitely recommend this place. There are so many restaurants and shops near by and major and name brand luxury shopping less than a 5-10 minute walk. So much stuff is within walking distance. I really like this hotel and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Hotel and room very clean, modern, quiet. Staff very friendly and helpful. Always greeted at door with smile. Close to Metro and walking distance to many shops ans restaurants.

Very nice hotel near La Perdrera. One block away from subway. SUPER nice staff. Great pool. Great breakfast. A perfect choice in Barcelona

We stayed for 8 nights. The hotel was fantastic; very clean and very modern. Everything was pretty much within walking distance, but the hotel is far enough away that you don't have to constantly be surrounded by large crowds of tourists. The hotel is across the street from a metro stop and near bus stops. Also, plenty of taxis parked just across the street. The staff was wonderful, especially Reda at the hotel bar. He was just the most polite and courteous bartender I have ever met. Only caution would be to avoid the laundry service. It's a little pricey. We ended up paying 55 euros to have a couple of shirts and shorts washed.

We loved our stay in Barcelona! This hotel is really great loved the room modern and comfortable. The staff was always helpful and very friendly.

This was a great choice... The staff could not have been more helpful. Great location ... We walked to all major attractions. Great breakfast .room was really nice

As we walked in to the Olivias Balmes Hotel we were welcomed warmly with the front desk and two glasses of Cava Champagne. Olivias Balmes is a newer Hotel in a beautiful neighborhood with many designer shops to see. The Hotel staff met our expectation, very accommodating to our needs. The concierge was excellent and gave us pointers to the attractions and restaurants.Down the street from the Olivias Balmes on the left side is a delicious Tapas/ Pinchos restaurants where they charge you buy food on the sticks. Very tasteful and reasonable compared to other tapas restaurants. Two people with many Pinchos and two drinks each is around $25 to 35 Euros total. I would highly recommend the Olivias Balmes Hotel to everyone.

Staff was fantastic spoke English fluently and helpful with sightseeing And dinner recommendations. Hotel has a very modern contemporary feel. I would stay there again if I return to Barcelona!!

Location is perfect, so many restaurants and shops are within walking distance. Getting to the Bus Turistico was only about 10-15min walk. Hotel itself is very fresh and clean, and the staff is very helpful. The bartender also hooked us up with generous pours. The only thing that was lacking was the pool on the roof. But all-in-all would definitely stay at again and also recommend to friends.

I really love the location. And the staff was very helpful and nice.

Such accommodating service. Best location l. Best everything
