If you like minimalism and ultra modern, then this hotel won't disappoint. I prefer something with a bit more character. The hotel was very clean and stylish, but everywhere was so black! Our room was nice (and mostly black!). A huge bed with open plan bathroom. The shower was not very private as the glass was not obscured, but my friend was kind enough to turn the other way :)
The staff were of the highest quality (to be expected in a 5 star hotel). They were really kind, friendly and helpful. The rooftop terrace is lovely with great views. 3.50 euros for a glass of water is a bit steep though.
Breakfast was nice, but I've experienced better in other 5 star hotels. You have to get your own tea and coffee and can only order one cooked item, if you want more you have to pay more!
Location was really good, short walk from the Cathedral, La Rambla, The Picasso Museum and the lovely Born District.
Don't be put off, it is a lovely hotel.
- 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.
