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!
