The hotel was great and the staff was super helpful as well. If you didn't get tickets of things to do they were able to sell it to you right there. It was also located near a lot of attractions and places to eat.

The hotel was one of the highlights of the trip. The staff was one of the friendliest and most accommodating hotel staff I have experienced. The rooftop terrace was a highlight-sipping sangria from the hotel bar while watching the sunset over the city. A perfect location surrounded by tons of delicious cafes/restaurants. We highly recommend this hotel!

Incredible and friendly staff

As stated in the title the staff couldn’t have been any better. Very kind and wanted to make sure my time in Barcelona was enjoyable. They recommended the specific tours I needed for the attractions I wanted to visit. They also mentioned the restaurants with the best paellas and tapas. Most of Gaudi’s incredible work is within walking distance from the hotel. The only time I needed the bus was to go to Barceloneta Beach. The only reasons why I didn’t give the overall rating of 5 was 1) the pool was very small. Basically 2 people can swim at the same time. I would assume this is just for lounging. I was able to do a few laps when the pool was opened first thing 2) while the breakfast buffet was nice, as an American who loves pancakes, waffles, and French toast, they were not available. But it is possible they are not a delicacy in Spain.

We were very impressed with our recent four night stay the end of May 2018 at Olivia Balmes! We arrived early morning and the room was not ready, but the staff warmly welcomed us and offered us Cava in the dining area while we waited. They finished preparing our room so we could check in early,which we greatly appreciated. The hotel was centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere. The staff was courteous, helpful and very accommodating and spoke English. We liked the modern and airy feeling of the room. We plan to stay at Olivia Balmes the next time we visit Barcelona and plan to recommend Olivia Balmes to our friends,family and colleagues when they visit Barcelona.
