Very Good8.0
Modern hotel with comfortable rooms
I stayed here for one night in a double room by myself. I picked Olivia mainly for the rooftop pool. The hotel design was smart and the use of space in my room was very clever with a walkthrough bathroom with separate toilet and shower, TV behind sliding walls and lots of mirrors to make the room feel bigger than it was. The bed was very comfortable. Ironically it was the one day of my trip when the skies were grey and it was wet and windy so my relaxing afternoon by the pool did not eventuate. I was pleasantly surprised by the restaurant where I had the set dinner menu option with complimentary tapas and wine for a reasonable price and breakfast the next morning was good. The only real negatives that I have for this hotel are the price (on the high side) and I experienced poor wifi connection from multiple sites (room, pool, restaurant). I would stay here again if I was looking to treat myself.

Excellent hotel
Hotel staff are extremely friendly, and the restaurant is excellent value. The hotel is right beside a subway stop making it easy to get to/from, but you can feel the vibrations from trains going by slightly, and only 15-20 min walk from plaza España. The pool was open when we were there in January, but the water was probably around 1 degree c. You can see one of the gaudi houses from the rooftop patio. Rainfall showers are really nice as well.
