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
5* Star Stay
I have taken my partner on the Birthday Trip to Barcelona. It was incredible experience at the hotel, the service is so thoughtful and friendly. The room was immaculately clean, great atmosphere and delicious breakfast with a real coffee. We have also tasted their other dishes during dinner time, it was very good quality food. Also had a good fitness area on the roof top with a beautiful pool. Overall, I would recommend this place as 5 Star Hotel in great location.

Location extremely convenient, staffs were efficient and friendly. The disadvantage is the vibration of the metro. Pool was not heated and water was almost freezing though the weather was very good that day, 23 degree.
