If you are looking for a fantastic hotel in the city center of Barcelona, this is it. Olivia Plaza Hotel is located in the Plaza de Catalyuna.
This is a main tourist spot in the center of Barcelona. It’s the drop off point of the Aerobus from the airport and where most tours start. La Rambla is right there as well and a few blocks from Gothic quarter. It really can’t be beat!
So how was the hotel? It’s a four star hotel but almost like a three star in the USA. But a good four star in Europe. The room is clean and very generic.
Check in was quick and easy. Staff was very pleasant. I got my room and headed up the elevator.
The room has a open format so the bathroom is somewhat open to the bedroom with the shower and toilet having their own glass doors. Not a lot of privacy.
The bed was fine. A thin mattress that’s a little hard but overall I slept fine. The window is just into the middle courtyard of the hotel which is indoors. So there’s no street noise.
The room wasn’t a place you necessarily want to spend the day in but perfect after a busy day of sightseeing.
I would definitely come back here for the location. I paid 123 euro for out of season.
