Making memories in barceona
The customer service was unbelievable and on point. The location was great for walking in many different directions to see roughly 20-30min. I was here with my two daughters and for our afternoon downtime enjoys the rooftop pool and bar. If I were to come to Barcelona again I would stay here again.

Exceeded expectations
Very accommodating staff. Rooms are big and there's plenty of natural light. Excellent location, with subway station and bus stops a short walk away (6 minutes). Breakfast is good enough, well worth the price.

Fabulous hotel
I loved everything about this Olivia Balmes from the check in to the room and all its amenities including the pool. It is located very conveniently to all the shopping and attractions of Barcelona center. The staff at front desk and bell are most friendly and accommodating, catering to every need, even when not asked for. I can't recommend this hotel more.
