A wonderful hotel. Rooms were nicely furnished, staff was incredibly friendly, hotel was quiet, and the bar downstairs was nice. The only "drawback" is the location--a bit removed from the main tourist attractions in a quiet, residential district. But with a metro stop about 100 yards away, this was hardly an issue.
Clean and modern hotel with spectacular glass sail structure. Walking into reception you are faced with a four story coloured light display in the atrium. I was lucky enough to have a room high up, which had a good view over the port.
The staff for booking in and checking out were efficient and polite.
The hotel is a little out of the centre with a long walk around the harbour, but the walk along the seafront to get to the hotel is pleasant.
The rooms were nicely furnished with the bed facing the picture window.
We checked in at 7am in the morning right after leaving our cruise. We had a seamless check-in process at the front office. The employees were very professional and very accommodating since our rooms were not ready. They took our luggage and kept them safe and gave us a quiet room to relax and use the internet and free wifi access since we didn't have our rooms yet. We left to explore the city 2 hours later and when we came back to the hotel later on that day, our luggage was in our room all ready for us. Amazing room if you like the super modern theme.
The hotel was a very comfortable and relaxing hotel, the rooms were pleasantly decorated and clean. The buffet breakfast was in a clean environment, the range of food was good and we enjoyed a nice breakfast each day of our stay. The hotel was right next to the city centre and a short distance to Las Ramblas and the local bars and restaurants. I would certainly stay at the hotel again.
We were welcomed by a wonderful front desk employee when we first checked in. He suggested a good restaurant for our first night. Breakfast at the hotel was a very nice buffet. Our room was quiet and great for sleeping in with our jetlag.
Couldn't have picked a better location for las ramblas & local attractions.
The hotel Olivia Balmas was of a very high standard & the staff top notch - they couldn't do enough for us.
We would recommend anyone wanting to be able to walk to great bars & restaurants to use this hotel as a base - we will definitely be going back.
Happy traveller from Middlesbrough, UK
