Hotel Ohla Barcelona

The front of house are attentive and friendly. The hotel is nicely designed with some lovely touches and a very comfortable bed.
Location is in walking distance of most of the central places you'd want to visit. It is near the metro line so you will get the odd rumbling vibration.
Roof top bar has one of the best views in Barcelona although you will only want to use the pool if you're comfortable being exposed to all by the glass siding.

The cocktail bar is a real highlight. It has some of the most expertly mixed, creative cocktails I've ever had the pleasure of drinking! Try the 5 Drop Ritual for craft or the Gentlemans Secret for fun :)

Service here was reasonable, lady at check in was a little short as I think she'd been busy and the ceremonious paperwork was a bit of a pain.

Otherwise the hotel is modern and clean, food in the restaurant is good quality - barman super fast and attentive.

Room was to a high standard, not particularly unique but perfectly clean, good quality of furnishings and facilities.

The boutique cocktail bar is where it's at. They don't fail to please with their unique twist on pretty much anything you throw at them to make.

The rooftop bar is great if the weather is warm and dry.

The spa leaves much to be desired. It's a tiny sauna and some showers.

Location is ideal to see the city hotspots.

I'd stay again if we go back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up, not so far to travel to the rooftop bar :)

We stayed there for two nights and loved it. The restaurant is very good, the tapas bar also.
The front desk and consierge was always there to help. Nice roof top view!!!! We enjoy every aspect of the hotel starting with the location, which is the Gotic area, close to many restaurants, bars, museums, and shops.

We recently stayed at the Ohla Hotel. WOW - what can we say except for excellent - ideally located for sightseeing in Barcelona. The reception staff and concierge were first class - extremely helpful and professional. The room was spotlessly clean - the bed comfortable and the linens a real treat.

If we had to make any criticism at all it would be that the rooftop terrace could have had a few more comfortale chairs and was a bit pricey, the completely see-through shower - a little more privacy would have been nice and the waiters in the breakfast restaurant a little more friendly.

Would definitely recommend this hotel and would consider it again for any future stays in Barcelona.

Very nice scenery on the rooftop. Hotel very well located for visiting the nice places of Barcelona & shopping. Would rate it more a 4,5 start than 5star hotel.
Rooms are well equiped (we had a junior suite) but have done Mandarin hotel & W hotel and that were really 5star hotels
Just one advice : be on time for breakfast because there's little space to eat.... First in are the lucky ones

Room Tip: Take a junior suite, standard room are small

I stayed 2 nights and the services from this hotel were warm , not exaggerated but courteous.
Breakfast was was so wonderful, and the manager was so nice and kind, dishes were clean and delicious
lunch in restaurant was also good( Michelin star restaurant, I can't remember the name)
room is somewhat tiny and small
there was no bathtub in my room and I was embarrased because there was no door to toilet
Not approprate for business trip, adequat with honeymoon or for couples ^^

But the location of this hotel is perfect! very quiet but central location, not far from Catalunya platz or Ramblas street. very close to lovely Catalunya music hall or Cathedral, Gothic Quarter.
Great for sightseeing!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
