A secluded quiet haven on Placa Catalunya, the heart of Barcelona
Plaça Catalunya is the most prominent location in the center of Barcelona, a lively and interesting public square, a short walk from the city’s most emblematic sights, the main shopping streets and countless forms of entertainment. But one needs to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, to have peace and quiet, to relax. In a busy location like Plaça Catalunya it is a real treasure to find a place like the 4-star Hotel Olivia Plaza, a secluded tranquil haven.
Hotel Olivia Plaza, standing right on Placa Catalunya, is in a modern building, its exterior not revealing too much from the outside. Once inside, however, the contemporary designer feel is captivating from the first moment – and then you discover more and more of the hidden secrets. There is a tranquil, green inner garden enclosed by the stone walls of the Romanesque church of Santa Ana – it is indeed an “unexpected surprise”. Then you’ll find inside a state-of-the-art cyber corner and an ambient library-relaxation room. There is also a great restaurant with excellent food as well as an intimate bar. Other services include 24-hour room service, business facilities and meeting/banquet rooms.
The 113 hotel rooms are all very spacious, they are almost like little ultra-modern studio apartments, without the kitchen. The contemporary décor and furnishing are stunning, and so is the bathroom elegantly separated by a glass wall. The spectacular view from the rooms is also worth mentioning, right on busy Placa Catalunya and the skyline of Barcelona. The double glazed floor-to-ceiling windows guarantee peace and quiet at night, and the air-conditioning a pleasant temperature even in the hottest months.
Reasonably priced for the class, quality and style alone, Hotel Olivia Plaza is in one of the best possible locations of Barcelona, providing a tranquil haven in the very center of this amazing city.
