Last night tonight in this gem of a place. Found on booking.com, great price. I was travelling alone and the single room was very much like the traveller photos on here, I had a private bathroom and it was spotless! Bed made daily and fresh towels daily. They take a lot of pride in keeping this place gleaming and welcoming....

The Hostal Oliva is great! The staff is very friendly (they speak limited English but we were able to communicate just fine), the room was large for Europe, and everything was incredibly clean. The hostal is located in an elegant building in a wonderful shopping/eating district - one block away from some of the famous Moderisme homes. It was exciting...

I am so pleased my friend suggested this place it really is a hidden gem. Its on the Passig Gracia, half way down so firstly a great safe neighbour (especially for single female), good for shopping, restaurants and easy access to the tourist attractions. There is a cash machine opposite, the Metro in 100 yds and a number of cafes...

I arrived in Barcelona on January 20 th with my boyfriend, and left on 22nd with my fiancé 💍 We chose Hostal Oliva as a base for our break as it was well located and inexpensive, but were blown away with the charm of the place. It's situated on the fourth floor of the building and accessed by the most...

We stayed just one night but intend returning very soon. You would never notice the Hostal Oliva as it is almost completely hidden. You have to ring the bell and the door then clicks open. Up just a few steps is the charming, tiny lift. Nothing tells you but the reception is on the 4th floor. The decor on the...

I merely chose this hostal based on the excellent reviews and i was happy that i did. I booked a quad room for the 4 of us. We arrived at around 8am which was way early than the check-in time. Upon arrival, the room was ready and we we allowed in. So we had good rest before going out. The...

We have stayed in a number of different (and high-end) hotels in Barcelona, but we keep returning to this reasonably priced and brilliantly situated family-run hostal. It ticks all the boxes for a couple of nights in Barcelona - clean, comfortable and convenient.

Very friendly and helpful family run Hostal in an excellent location. The Passeig de Gracia metro and mainline stations are very close by. From the mainline station there are trains direct to the airport, Barcelona Sants, Franca and out to Montmello if you want to go to any of the events at the Circuit de Catalunya such as the Spanish...

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...

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.
