“Great Location Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

I really enjoyed my stay at Ohla hotel. You cannot beat the location and the hotel itself is a beautiful old building which has been redone inside. It's not really my taste, very modern but it was nicely done. We got a junior suite which I hear you should do because the other rooms are very small. Our room was large. Loved the view and they give you great bath products. The hotel is very expensive and I would say that I was a little disappointed with the pool situation. The pool area is very beautiful but entirely too small for how many guests they have. We tried to get a seat at the pool about 3 times. When we asked if they had any extra chairs the staff said "no, that's just how it is." I was a little put off by this because there was room to perhaps bring up an extra chair. Also the day beds are impossible to get and people go in the morning put there stuff there and hold them for the entire day which is unfair. They should have some sort of time limit so everyone can enjoy the pool for at least a couple of hours. On the plus side, the Gastro Tapas Bar was one of the best meals I've ever had. It was truly amazing. Get the mussels! Staff was great in the restaurant and was very helpful in general. Everyone in the hotel speaks English, and many other languages so it makes travel easy. Overall enjoyed my stay very much, maybe a touch expensive for what you get.

The hotel is lovely, and great central location. The stairs are v dark (modern) but you have to use them as you can't wait a while for lifts. Our room was stunning like a suite but at night still 3 floors up you could still hear underground so took a while to get used to the drone before you could drop off. Asked to move higher up but had no space but despite complaining they didn't do anyhow - such a shame as loved hotel and pool top is amazing view and cocktails .

An outstanding hotel which is extremely close to Catalunya Square. A brisk walk of five to ten minutes and you are in the centre of things with a major Metro hub at hand. The staff were warm and welcoming and the concierge gave us masses of information as to how to enjoy the city in the relatively short time we were there. The buffet breakfast was excellent and, once again, the staff were extremely attentive. The room was beautifully appointed.
The Aerobus service runs from Catalunya Square so the hotel is actually very conveniently located for airport access.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked a quiet residential street but it is possible to have a room which overlooks the...

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.

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
