“A great experience”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We stayed 6 nights and overall a fantastic experience. We changed our junior suite from 211 which was nice but the bathroom was so dark. We changed to 604 and that was a good move, better light and fantastic view. The rooms ending in 11 have a great aspect.The rooftop bar is intimate with stunning views. Breakfast was good with lively view to the street. We found the overall hotel service to be efficient, caring and informative.

Room Tip: Bathroom light is not so good , so ladies take a mirror for make up

A very good hotel. I loved the rooms and the design of the shower. There are also quite a few English channels on the TV which is useful for news. The breakfast was good but you had to get up and help yourself to coffee. Quite a lot of hotels will server coffee and tea to the table even with buffet breakfasts. The only problem with my room was that it faced the street and was very noisy. When you check in make sure that you ask for a room that does not face the front.
I found the check in and check out experience very bizarre as it is too formal and the whole process seemed to be like a job interview. It involves you sitting in front of an office desk as you check your bill. Overall not bad though

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street or the front are much quiter

Albert set the tone for our stay here by warmly greeting us andmaking useful suggestions for making the most of our three day stay in Barcelona. Our room was spacious, by European standards, well-appointed and immaculate. The hi-tech plumbing and electrical components are more novelty than practicality, but fun, nevertheless. High quality linens and excellent mattress were perfect respite for our jet-lagged bodies. Breakfast was fresh and offered many options. The roof top pool is a wonderful way to view the city, where Alessandro extends the same warm hospitality we have experienced while staying at Ohla.

Lovely building in a great location. Rooms are spacious and very cool and comfortable. Breakfast was poor (for a 5 star hotel). Average food but very tight space and very poor service. Worse thing being told that we could order only one of the hot dishes as otherwise we would be charged extra (the case was that we did not want any hot food and had enough with the buffet but the comentary delivered in quite poor English felt quite mean). In any case, no one came to our table to ask if we wanted any hot dish. Coffee was quite bad.

Service all the way through, from check in to check out felt friendly enough but a bit unprofessional, definitely not 5 star level. At a 4 star level and price, this hotel would probably work much better.

I stayed here for a short while for business and a bit of pleasure. Got an early checkin which was a bonus. Stayed in the Junior Suite room 311. Very quiet room not facing the main street. Very large with a lounge area. Note it has a balcony but you cannot go on it. You can ask the consierge to open the windows for you to let some natural air in. You also get to choose your quality of bedding! The best is the rooftop pool area with stunning views of the city. If you go early enough or late in the afternoon you can get a sun lounger. The pool is large enough to swim in. Its made of glass and is very refreshing in the hot sun. The views are amazing. The michelin star restaurant Sauc is an experience not to be missed!! The advantage of room 311 is that the shower is not in the middle of the room like other rooms and you cannot hear a thing at night! The staff are very attentive and speak very fluent english. Note the drinks are very very pricey!! 14 Euro for a Gin and Tonic! If you want to save money on drinks there is a supermarket across the road on Via Laietana. Breakfast is very good as it was included in the price. Go before 10am to be seated. Overall its very well located near to all the main attractions. For the beach take a taxi to Marbella beach. Taxi fares are very reasonable to get anywhere from the hotel. This hotel should be in the top 10!

We stayed in the Ohla Hotel in Barcelona in July 2012. The hotel is located about 10 mins walk up from the marina next to the Plaza Catalunya and Barri Gothic areas in the city centre. We found the hotel was chic and sophisticated. We were greeted by the bell staff on arrival and we were allowed early check-in which, given we arrived before lunch, we really appreciated. The room was very large, overlooking the side street, well-appointed and a fabulous bathroom. We were offered our choice of pillows and slept very well there!

A roof-top pool in Barcelona is a must, and we loved the roof terrace bar/pool area of the hotel. The pool is not Olympi-size, but we were in the city centre, and the chance to cool off after trekking the town all day was great! The views from the terrace are also fantastic.

We ate in Souk, the hotel's Michelin-starred restaurant, on the weekend. The food was excellent, in fact some of the best we have eaten. You have to try the chocolate signature dessert, you will "WOW" when the server brings to the table! Main courses were also excellent.

We cannot understand why Ohla is not higher up on TripAdvisor ratings. Reading the reviews, we think the smaller rooms are not as good as the suites, we recommend the Junior Suite for your stay. The service and breakfast were also excellent. Thank you Ohla for a great weekend, we were so pleased with our stay.

Room Tip: Junior Suite

Ohla Barcelona Hotel is a five-star boutique hotel located in the historical center of the city Barcelona, surrounded by three of the city's most popular sight-seeing and shopping areas: the Gothic Quarter, the Born and the Eixample. Inaugurated in February 2011, its location is perfect for tourism, shopping or business, with a fusion of calm serenity and the bustle of downtown Barcelona. The project has left untouched the building's historical facade from 1920 and other listed elements, including the main staircase, while giving the establishment a cutting-edge, minimalist interior design that combines various textures of black, white and oak wood. The building stands out for the sculpture on the facade by world-renowned artist, Frederic Amat. The hotel has 74 rooms, all equipped with a 40-inch TV screen and satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, telephone, safe box with room for a 17-inch laptop, adjustable lighting, individual thermostat, Egyptian cotton sheets, robe, slippers, kettle and minibar. Its culinary spaces are one of the highlights of the hotel, which locals consider great meeting points: Caelis restaurant, awarded with a Michelin star; La Plassohla, 'tapas' and small plates and Vistro 49, a boutique bar specialized in wines and cocktails. The terrace and the enclosed pool, the only one of its kind in Barcelona, have been called one of the best places to relax and enjoy a spectacular view of the city. Meeting rooms, gym, sauna and massage room, internet corner and parking garage are just some of the other services the department of Public Relations can offer to even further personalize each guest's stay and ensure it is an unforgettable experience. In short, a world of experiences that the whole Ohla Barcelona team offers guests looking for a hotel with charm and personality in the center of Barcelona. ... more   less
