About Olivia Balmes Hotel

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
Immaculate hotel with very helpful and friendly staff. Room just the right size with little touches here and there which made our stay a more pleasant experience. Location is in a reasonably quiet area, but smack bang in the middle of Barcelona and right next to Provenca metro station (this connects to Diagonal by walking along the platform although you will need a ticket to switch between stations as there are barriers) making it easy to get around. Lots of cafes and bars nearby for your Tapas fix. Would definitely stay here again.

Olivia Balmes Hotel
Perfect stay in Barcelona!
This is a first class hotel in a quieter part of Barcelona, but still within easy walking distance of Las Ramblas and the designer shopping streets of Barcelona. There is a Metro station directly opposite the hotel, giving quick, easy access to all of Barcelona if you prefer. The entire hotel is immaculate and the staff are first class, always providing service with a smile. Nothing is too much trouble; their attention to detail deserves special praise, especially Ania in reception. The rooftop pool and bar were the ‘icing on the cake’ for us and provided the perfect retreat from the bustle of the city. When we return to Barcelona, we will certainly consider staying at the Olivia Balmes Hotel again.

Very Good8.0
A great location for a hotel
The hotel is beautifully located within walking distance from great restaurants and shops as well as some major attractions. The room was big enough and quite comfortable but as we stayed in a front facing room, still quite noisy. The pool area is a lot smaller than the photos make it out to be and the gym was a great disappointment. A few free weights would have been much better than the multi gym machine they have which doesn’t work so well. We loved the Cevejaria Catalana, literally 2 minutes walk from the hotel - great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Overall, a lovely stay. Would definitely recommend
