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.
