    Highly Recommend Hotel!

    Olivia Balmes had been recommended to us by friends who had recently stayed there. Originally we had an Air BnB in El Born, but we're so thankful after it cancelled on us, that we found the Olivia Balmes and L'Eiixample. We loved the area, and the fact that it was another 10-minutes away from the craziness of Las Ramblas, gave us a nice respite. The staff service is exemplary, always willing to help with any local advise, drinks upon arrival, coffee to go for our early morning departure, restaurant recommendations etc. It took some getting used to the bathroom situation in the middle of the room, but all was immaculate and the room very hip! Good value. We walked everywhere in Barcelona from the hotel and found it very convenient.

    A Very Nice Hotel

    The hotel is very modern with many amenities. I arrived at the hotel around 4pm, well after the check in time. The gentleman at the desk was lovely. He said the hotel wanted to offer me a drink of my choice. Since I had traveled many hours, I just wanted to go to my room so I informed the desk agent. In fact, my room wasn't ready despite it being after the check in time. The wait was bearable and I made my way to the room. Of note, I made my reservation the website because the rate was preferable, an upgrade guaranteed and a welcome gift offered. I received the preferable rate but no welcome gift or upgrade. Now, the room was very nice(freezing and thermostat set to 16) but a very particular layout to be aware of. As you enter, the toilet closet is immediately to the right(in my room on the 7th floor) as all of the 'bathroom' is not a separate space from the room itself. The sink/mirror is in the open and on the right was well. Next on the right is a shower with a slider closing door. The shower had a hand shower head and rainfall fixture above spacious and good water pressure. No tub. The bed was large, the flat screen adequate and a nice desk with chair. The lighting was good and easily controllable. Now, the flooring. The floor was wood plank. Apparently, without the proper sub-board to mute the walking above. So, quite often while in my room, I heard the person above 'click, clak click clak' across their floor and my ceiling. I think there was the same click clak from the adjacent room as well. (not sure the source of the sound on the same floor level. Now, if you are not sound sensitive, don't sweat it. If you are sound sensitive like I am, don't stay here. I couldn't take it. To be fair, I did not complain I did not want to move if moving would have solved this issue. In my case the flooring issue was a deal breaker for a return visit.
