The Hostal Oliva is in a superb location, very close to many restaurants, shopping and less than 10 minutes walk from the Aerobus (airport transfer) point at Placa de Catalunya. And if you like to walk, less than an hour will take you to most...More

We loved Hostal Oliva (don't be put off by the word 'hostal' — it means a small, family-run hotel, not a hostel). The location in the upmarket Passeig de Gracia is amazing, with near neighbours like Tiffany and Manolo Blahnik, and there are lots of...More

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you

translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
