Amazing 4-star Hotel!”

Upon our check-in, Joseph spent a good amount of time showing us a map of the city and giving us recommendations of where to go and tips for seeing/getting around the city. It was awesome to be greeted with warmth and recommendations! We were given a small upgrade to a bigger room and it was not only large but very comfortable. The staff are friendly, gracious, helpful and always greet you when you come in/out, even getting the door for you. The only small complaints we have are that the toilet paper was one-ply, rough and small rolls that we had to call up daily to be brought more. And the bath towels are on the thinner side and not very soft. These are so minor and shouldn't stop you from booking. This hotel was in a perfect, clean, comfortable condition. We would stay again next time we are in Barcelona!!

Great Services!”

1. Friendly, speedy check-in. 2. Haul my luggage to my room while I am still checking in. 3. Accommodate my needs for a room with special needs, complimentary. 4. A welcome card from the hotel manager along with a glass of wine and snacks, for my first visit. 5. The room is very clean, good vibe, comfortable. 6. The room is quiet. 7. Ask if I want to have bottles of water after I check out, and ask if I need any help to getting me to the airport. 8. Close to most attraction by walking 20-30 minutes, train station to BCN airport is 9 minutes walking. Very pleasant stay. Sure will stay here again on my next visit.

Superb location and fantastic staff! ”

This is our belated honey moon/anniversary with our 3 years old daughter. Everything is perfect, and we love the friendly, helpful and down-to-details staff that welcome us every time they see us. The room is well-equipped, spacious and quiet if you think of you are actually sitting in the center of the city and right next to the bustling street. Walking distance to most of the famous attractions, great selections of restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. We’ll definitely come back again! Thank you for having us!

Dear Yiwen, What a great review! From the moment you booked until now, it has been a great pleasure to deal with you! It is very grateful to receive this rating that involves all the staff and hotel services. That kind of feedback encourages us to keep working in this direction. We always try to work in a good mood and the best of that is that spreads to everyone who is around:). Thank you very much for your kindness! Warmest regards, Lenin Marte Front Desk Manager

Great experience without actually staying at the hotel!!”

This hotel is the BEST at communicating with their guests even before they arrive! The staff has a heart and are very thoughtful. I didn’t even stay there and I was so impressed. THAT is what you call service. I will tell everyone. 2 days before I checked in to the hotel I r’cd a call that my mum had passed. I emailed the hotel who advised that b/c I booked with Agoda I had to cancel thru them. The hotel constantly wrote me emails of comfort and even reached to Agoda on my behalf to assist me with a refund. Agoda you were not nice. It was an extenuating circumstance despite the type of booking. I can produce the death certificate and was hoping for a full refund. The Olivia Balmes hotel will get my booking directly when next I visit Spain. Sadly, Agoda you and your team will not get any good reviews from me. Your service to me was not considerate during my time of unexpected grief. The hotel Olivia gets 5 stars and more. Regrettably Agoda gets no stars.
