“We had more expactations”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

we stayed for 5 nights at Ohla Hoel, it was nice hotel , but we found a bit expensive for its room size, service quality, and some details, we couldnt open the window when we were in room, I have allergic problem and call the concierge everyday to opn the windows whwn we were not in the room, we stayed in a design room.
During the breakfast we wanted hot apple cake,they served us an ordinary lemon cake cold one, and told us it was an apple cake, the room service they dont change your bed every day if you dont put a card of hotel, we recognize it last day , they sent us a plate of truffle for appologizing ,it was kind really and teastful.
Morning breakfast buffet was not as expected as we thaught, the swimming pool is not a pool actually, but terrace wiev is fascinating, We have generally high expactations after Turkey hotels because in Turkey service is amazing and to hard to find in Europe or Us same standarts.
But nice towels and bathroom , small but useful bedroom and very comfortabe beds
Mr Yves was very helpful all during the reservation and for all. Thanks for him.
Actually it worth half price less that its price

Room Tip: ask before the reservation that your Windows could be opened

We came here for our 10th wedding anniversary and our (high) expectations were met, and exceeded, in every way. From the chilled champagne on arrival, to the delicious Sauc restaurant and the stunning rooftop pool, everything was perfect. The staff are unobtrusive yet available, friendly and incredibly helpful. The standard room in it's cool modern style was easily big enough and well appointed. We'd come back here in a shot, if we had another good excuse!!

The hotel is well situated and the rooms are good if not very private due to the modern design of open toilets and bathrooms. Otherwise very comfortable and clean with nice views of the city. The big plus for Ohla other than location is that the staff here are genuinely friendly, helpful and efficient. The breakfast is in a well designed dining room and offers a well prepared quality fresh spread with a choice of a well cooked tasty breakfast. Again the staff treat you as a family and the service is OK but very friendly. Great atmosphere.
The other plus is free candy to put in your pocket for a full day in Barcelona.

Room Tip: All rooms are good but the rooms facing the City are quiet and offer a nice view in the morning. Als...

Ohla Hotel is in a great location in Barcelona and the staff are excellent - friendly and helpful. We were a little disappointed with the amenities in our Junior Suite and they went out their way to change the room. The room itself was comfortable although a little small.

We ate in both the contemporary tapas bar (delicious) and Sauc restaurant - also delicious, but somewhat "crammed in" to an awkward mezzanine space. They have struggled with the design of the reception areas on the lower floors and the corridors on the accommodation floors are dark and gloomy.

Also agree with comments about the ambience of the rooftop pool and bar - but impossible to get a seat.

The Ohla hotel is housed in a very beautiful building right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. The service at reception is very good and the concierge very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are modern with good quality bed linen etc.
The roof terrace and pool has a great ambience but it is practically impossible to get a sunbed unless you get up at the crack of dawn to reserve one with your towel.
Overall this hotel is good but there was one major disappointment. The quality and choice of the food in the breakfast restaurant is decidedly average. The portions of the ordered hot dishes are tiny. It's almost as if they have cut corners because the breakfast is included in the nightly rate.
The staff in the restaurant have a completely different attitude to the staff in the rest of the hotel, being slow and apathetic. We ate in this restaurant once during our stay and I would advise anybody coming here toy eat out as there are some fantastic restaurants in Barcelona.

The Ohla Hotel is by far and away the best hotel we have ever stayed in. From the moment we walked into the hotel we were treated very well, we were offered cava whilst we checked in and had a letter from the manager welcoming us. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff went out of their way to be as accommodating as possible. The hotel room was divine and immaculate, with the most comfortable bed. We especially loved the roof top pool and bar. Just total heaven!

Room Tip: Go to the restaurant Cal Pep for an amazing dining experience.

Fantastic hotel! Very modern. We received a very warm welcome and were offered a lovely glass of Cava when checking-in. It was my boyfriend's birthday and I had notified the hotel of this ahead of arrival - the staff personally wished him a happy birthday and arranged for a complimentary bottle of cava to be sent to the room.
Our room, a deluxe double, was lovely, very clean, with a nice view over the streets below. Despite being so central we hardly heard any noise from the street. The shower is wonderful! Its all glass and looks into the bedroom, so not for the shy!
The rooftop pool is lovely - quite small, but the area never seemed to get too busy. It does close at 6:30pm though, which is a bit early, but the area turns into a bar at night so understandable. As hotel guests we were given priority seating at the rooftop bar ie access to the lounge areas, which was nice!
We ate at the Sauc restaurant during our stay - we went for the a la carte menu - it was very good, we'd highly recommend it.
We also took part in the cocktail Master class - again I'd highly recommend this - it was lots of fun, the head bar man, clearly new his stuff and the cocktails both looked and tasted amazing.
The hotel is really well located - very central so could walk to most places and also 1 minute from the metro.
We had as lovely stay - Barcelona is a wonderful city and we were very lucky to have been able to have enjoyed it staying at such a great 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
