Recent guest reviews

We spent the weekend at this hotel and it was perfect. The staff were extremely attentive and could not do enough for us. Our room was fabulous and we even had a welcome Bottle of Cava waiting for us as a birthday treat. The location was at the top of the Gothic Quarter, overlooking Plaza Catalunya. It could not have been better, as everything was easily accessible from here. Would definitely go back.

From the moment we arrived at the Olivia plaza Hotel we were made to feel very welcome, we were lucky enough to receive a free room upgrade and had a wonderful view of the square. Thank you to everyone who made our stay so special and when we visit again in Barcelona we will be sure to come back.

You know how it feels like when you are traveling to a new destination and constantly looking for the best place to stay… well you stop looking you have just found it. We have stayed at the Olivia Plaze Hotel over the weekend ( Friday to Sunday ) following my sisters recommendation, and I am happy to share that it was a good recommendation to follow . If you want to know why, here are the 5 reasons why you want to stay at the Olivia Plaza 1. Location, Location, Location – The best Location in town – at the center of the center - the hotel is actually located on Plaza Catalunya 5 Min walk from Passeig de Gracia and the Rambla, whatever you can think of is in the reach of your hands. Despite the location, the hotel is quite, cozy and Very comfortable. 2. Rooms- The Rooms are modern, spacious and nicely decorated. The bed is comfortable and some of them have a spectacular view ( Ask for a room with the Piaza View) 3. Customer Service - the hotel Stuff was very friendly , professional , welcoming and very pleasant ( Specially Claudia)- they made us feel welcome the entire stay. Very unusual ! 4. Guest Relations – Returning to our on the first night, we were happy to find a cold ice bottle of Cava and strawberries deeded in chocolate - nice gesture by the hotel management. 5. Public Spaces- The hotel itself is very nice as well, the overall look and feel is clean and modern - the décor and furniture's are contemporary and stylish Bottom Line- stop looking for accommodation and instead book your reservation, you have just found to the right place to stay in your next visit to Barcelona …..Thank me later…

Stayed at this hotel Nov 2017 stunning room on the top floor with beautiful view front and back excellent room service ,and very good service at reception the room was to a very high standard and very clean ,there was also tea and coffee available in the room and it was topped up everyday well worth a visit .

Last stayed here in 2016 and was impressed enough to book this hotel directly for a return trip. The bus from the airport costing 5.90 stops 2 mins from this hotel at the plaza Catalunya. Very very convenient compared to hotels that claim they are 5 mins from La Rambla. This hotel is at the intersection of 2 main shopping streets. La Rambla to the left, Passeig de Gracia slightly to the right. There are many good tapas restaurant within a 10-15 mins walk from the hotel. our favourite being Vinitus or Ciudad Condal or Catalana. When we checked in, the hotel upgraded us to a room that has a terrace that overlooks the plaza. Probably because we were return travellers.Very thankful! Hope I don't set an unrealistic expectations but they also gave us 2 glasses of cava in the room. VIP service. Nothing to complain about, 100% satisfied.

Nearly ON the Placa Catalunya. Good beds, nice rainshower, nice size rooms. Sound isolation is good as well, no disturbing noise from the rooms next door. Breakfast buffet is on the small side, however all the essentials are present. Pleasant to be seated in the veranda.

I was having a flu while I was in Barcelona, staying at Olivia Plaza Hotel. Thanks to kind staff of Olivia Plaza I recovered sooner.. I want to deliver my special thanks to Mexxi from the restaurant services who was so sincere in his desire to help me and prepared me a herbal tea with lemon and fresh ginger, I will never forget it. People are satisfied with their jobs here, and it is reflected on their behaviour. Thank you Olivia Plaza for being able to create such a welcoming environment supported with a lot of nice employees:)

Very nice hotel, in good location, close to all attractions. the rooms are spacious and clean. the staff are super nice and professional. The best service. .Parking is available in the place We will come again

Stayed for one night. Room was clean and well equipped (the rainforest shower was wonderful!) and the bed was very comfortable. Reception staff were so friendly and helpful, especially with my bad Spanish and their good English. Hotel is ideally placed, just across the street from the Plaza square and all the connections you need. The restaurant has a street area for socialising. Highly recommended.

Since the moment we arrived til the day we left we felt at ease! Their friendliness and hospitality was the best thus far! Not to mention they had all the answers to our questions. Laura, Eli and the young bellman (don’t know his name) were very nice and helpful! Not once did they make us feel uncomfortable for asking too many questions. If we are ever back in Barcelona this will be our to go place!
