My wife and I stayed at Hostal Oliva for three nights in early October. It was perfect for us. We'd asked for a quite room off the street, which was not a problem. Comfortable beds, nice bathroom, great stay. Very friendly owners and staff. You have to ring a buzzer to be admitted, but it never took more than a...

I think it is fair quality/price It is clean.. Friendly Receptionist. Near to pg Garcia metro station. You can find many restaurants around. The only thing is that the reception was in the 4th floor and it took me a while to discover it since there is no labeling for that.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and absolutely loved it here!! It's extremely cozy and lovely. There's an old fashioned elevator to get to the fourth floor that was always quick. You had to be buzzed in to the building but again they were always fast to let you in and waiting for when you get out...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It is im downtown Barcelona near the metro and everything you need. It is on the fourth floor of a gorgeous old building and you ascend in a quaint old elevator. Our room was a corner room, huge big windows a little noisy at night. Definitely a great experience.

Perfectly located in best part of town on a famous street, this establishment is on a 4th floor in a l930's builiding. Elevator is the old varnished wood with bench seat to sit whilst elevator takes it time climbing to top floor- wonderful!. Hostal is no frills, no meals offered, but you don't need that when so many tapas bars...

Hostal Oliva was a wonderful,very affordable find in a most interesting area of Barcelona. After two full days of sightseeing I looked forward to returning to my little home away from home. An extra bonus was having two windows which opened onto the sights and sounds of Passeig de gracia. I felt welcomed and very safe at all times. Loved...

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
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.
