About Olivia Balmes Hotel, Barcelona

Stylish haven with rooftop pool in elegant Eixample

Close to Diagonal metro

Ideally located in the Eixample district, Barcelona's grid-like upscale shopping area, Olivia Balmes Hotel is just 5 minutes' walk from the nearest metro stop at Diagonal. Also under 10 minutes' stroll away is the Passeig de Gràcia, one of Barcelona's major shopping streets.

5 minutes to Gaudí museum

The hotel is a great base for exploring the work of architect Antoni Gaudí, one of Barcelona's greatest and most enduring figures. Two favorites, Casa Batlló and Casa Mila, now a museum dedicated to his work, are 5 minutes' walk away, it's 2 metro stops to the Sagrada Família.

Swimming pool with a view

Barcelona's mild climate means you'll be able to take advantage of the rooftop terrace and pool in any season. The hotel's sprawling, modern Seventeen restaurant serves Mediterranean and Catalan cuisine, including plenty of freshly caught seafood.

Stylish rooms, free WiFi

Guests praise the sleek, stylish rooms, which are particularly spacious for a city hotel and feature floor-to-ceiling windows. Each of the 128 rooms offers free WiFi, flat-screen satellite TV, a minibar, and soundproofing so you can more sleep comfortably.

Olivia Balmes Hotel, Barcelona
I only stayed one night at the end of my long trip. Instead of staying at the other hotel that I stayed before, I decided to try Olivia Balmes. I must say that it was the right decision to make. The room is big though the bathroom layout is a bit unusual. Staff are very friendly and helpful, provided us clear and useful information. There are many good restaurants in the neighborhood if you don’t want to travel too far for dinner or even lunch. I wish I could have stayed there longer,

The staff is incredible.
We had an amazing stay at Olivia Balmes. We had a small problem with our rooms at check in but we were compensated fairly. The rooms were spacious,clean and quiet. The breakfast was outstanding. However the main reason that this hotel is the place to stay in Barcelona is the staff. They were all professional and courteous. All of our questions about recommendations about restaurants and directions to different attractions were always done with a smile. Also the employees in the restaurant were equally hospitable. A special thank you to Ania who made our stay special. I would highly recommend Olivia Balmes.

Great location. Great Hotel. Overall yes for sure would consider staying their again. On what they can improve to get an exceptional rating..I would suggest more training for house keeping staff to improve cleaning of rooms ( my guess is staff work very hard - thank you) but quite a few weakness in their daily process. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
