“Just about perfect in great Barcelona location”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

I stayed here by myself for about a week in early April. The location is perfect for exploring the city, especially the older areas like the Born and the Barri Gotic. It is right across the street from the Palau of Catalan Musica. While meandering the streets and neighborhoods of Barcelona is a true pleasure, the hotel also is right across the street from the blue subway line and an easy area in which to get a taxi. In addition to a prime location, the hotel itself is very modern and beautiful. Know before you book, this isn't an old style Spanish hotel. Instead, it is highly designed and modern. The junior suite I was in was very cleanly designed and extremely comfortable. The suite had three floor to ceiling windows that overlooked beautiful buildings and a quiet pedestrian only street. While the windows didn't open the air conditioning in the room was top notch, something you don't always find in Barcelona. The room had a very comfortable sofa on which to relax, very reminiscent of a sectional. There were several English speaking TV stations, although they were all news related. One of the nicest aspects of the hotel is the roof deck where I tended to find myself most late afternoons, relaxing on a lounge chair, drinking an aperetif and reading my book. Lovely place to while away a couple of hours between sight seeing and heading out to dinner. The hotel also features a great breakfast with a wide variety of food available in one of the hotel restaurants. But as much as the hotel itself was terrific, the best aspect of the Ohla is the staff. To a person, each and everyone I came into contact with was helpful and attentive and just plain nice. A special appreciation goes to Albert at the front desk who was always delightful and helped me with a million questions and recommendations. I felt that he really wanted to take care of me. All in all, I honestly don't think you can go wrong staying at the Ohla. It's a wonderful ambassador for the city of Barcelona!

Room Tip: If you can spring for one, the junior suites are really large and comfortable. My corner suites see...

Ohla Hotel was by far the best hotel I've ever stayed at. I've traveled throughout Europe and was expecting a small room even though we booked a Junior Suite. To our surprise the room was huge! And even though we were on the 2nd floor the views were beautiful. The breakfast that was included was worth at least 40 Euros each but was free for hotel guests, amazing. But the best thing by far were the employees. They were attentive, polite, and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. There's a super sweet gentlemen that "manned" the entryway desk named Albert that seriously made the trip worth it. Location is close to everything and the car service we booked through Ohla to take us to Montserrat was perfect as well.

Stayed here for a few days. Excellent location very close to Catalonya Square and Las Ramblas. Leave the car at home! Staff were attentive and very helpful. We ate at Sauc restaurant and that was a total pleasure for us and our taste buds.

Room was very comfortable

We stayed at the hotel this April with 2 other couples. We had a really comfortable stay. The hotel was in fantastic location and the rooms and facilities were of a very high standard. The concierge was very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were superb. Excellent selection of choice for both hot and cold options. From smoked salmon to bacon & eggs! Buck's Fizz & fresh coffee on tap!

We would all highly recommend the Ohla Hotel for comfort, location, friendly helpful staff and legendary breakfasts!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the main road but it was completely sound proof. Didn't hear a thing...

Excellent location to visit the town, very central and you can do most by foor from here. Junior suite is a good tip: modern but still cosy and lots of space, ipod connector included,...Pool roof nice to relax inbetween town visits. Customer experience service that was offered also very nice advantage, gave that little extra to our city trip.

Room Tip: Junior suite.

On the edge of the Old Town the Ohla is perfectly located for strolling around the Old Town with its bars, restaurants, sites and shops. Also for taxis and buses with metro stop 100m away. For the hot season the roof top pool (small) and bar would be wonderful to escape the heat. The shower in a glass surround in the middle of the room a bit unusual and not for room sharing! Reviews have said breakfast is great but would say just descent with better at other 5star hotels. Usual cold spread. Charging €4 for an egg where I would expect an egg station or at least included in the room price - at least the wifi was free but why do such top end establishments try to make such small but annoying charges. Leaving the room for 3 hours was disappointing that each day the cleaners had not been in for when we got back after lunch for a rest. Would use again and keep with the designer room which I think is one up from the basic one. Consierge was excellent advising and helping with bookings - for all the big sites get a prebooked time slot and prepaid ticket otherwise you can have to wait until 'next round' an hour or two later or have to queue in the heat for upto 2 hours. For Familiar cathedral we just walked in at or time slot ahead of a 200m queue.

Small hotel, well situated for walking tourism. Rooms were modern and quirky. A shower cube in centre of room. Wonderful roof area with a small pool and seating area, plus sunning area. Bar downstairs was open late and had all the right drinks. Staff pleasant and efficient.

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
