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.

Hotel Olivia Balmas is one of the best I have been in. The stuff is very friendly and willing to help in any moment. The hotel is very modern in its design, and it is very convenient that the shower and toilet are separated. Breakfast is rich enough, and has options to choose

Rooms were "different" in that the bathroom and bedroom were "integrated", but however surprising, it actually worked. Good service, good, clean rooms and otherwise. Located centrally, with walking distance to virtually everything. I am used to "breakfast included", but as soon

Looking down on Barcelona's Calle Balmes in front of the hotel from my 6th floor room ...
A simple shot of the room interior showing only the wood floors, bed(s) and hidden TV panels to the left! Very stylish and comfortable boutique accommodations.

Is the pool heated, please?
We were there in early November and it was too cool for the pool. So I would say the pool is not heated. To confirm, I recommend calling the hotel and asking. The folks at the front desk are a pleasure to deal with.

Can you get the train from the airport to a nearby station?
Sorry I have not experienced the train , I do not know if there is any , but I think it is better a bus to Placa Catalogna which is not far from the hotel , taxi from airport to Hotel is in the range of 30-35 euro, enjoy

Approximately what is the surcharge for breakfast?
I7 euros looks about right. If a cup of coffee and croissant is enough for you then eat out. We enjoy the comprehensive choice and find that we last well into the afternoon before needing to eat. The coffee is either nespresso or another very good brand and you can help yourself. Tea, Cava, fresh juices,cereals, yoghurts, cold meats, cheeses, variety of breads, cooked items including any type of egg and a variety of pastries and cakes all in a relaxing restaurant or if the weather is nice in the courtyard.
