Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.

We stayed at the Olivia Balmes Barcelona in December 2018. It was a lovely experience right from the time we stepped into the hotel. From the bell boy to Rino at the reception everyone was so friendly and warm. Service is excellent. Location of the hotel is superb. Just a 5

Hotel Olivia Balmas is one of the best I have been in. The stuff is very friendly and willing to help in any moment. The hotel is very modern in its design, and it is very convenient that the shower and toilet are separated. Breakfast is rich enough, and has options to choose

We checked in on New Years Eve, and stayed for a week. The accommodations are very nice, and I love the modern decor. I wish my house looked like the hotel, dark grey wood everywhere and good mood lighting. The staff is SO nice; literally everyone from the front desk, bar

Can you get the train from the airport to a nearby station?
Sorry I have not experienced the train , I do not know if there is any , but I think it is better a bus to Placa Catalogna which is not far from the hotel , taxi from airport to Hotel is in the range of 30-35 euro, enjoy

Approximately what is the surcharge for breakfast?
I7 euros looks about right. If a cup of coffee and croissant is enough for you then eat out. We enjoy the comprehensive choice and find that we last well into the afternoon before needing to eat. The coffee is either nespresso or another very good brand and you can help yourself. Tea, Cava, fresh juices,cereals, yoghurts, cold meats, cheeses, variety of breads, cooked items including any type of egg and a variety of pastries and cakes all in a relaxing restaurant or if the weather is nice in the courtyard.
