“Great hotel in fantastic location ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights on the way to ibiza having cancelled our booking at the overpriced W hotel. We were not disappointed as the hotel offers great value with very good and helpful service in the central of Barcelona. The cocktail bar is also well worth a visit as whilst it is quiet the cocktails were very innovative . Def return visit.

Spent 3 nights here-loved the rooftop terrace bar. Would recommend a suite. Not so keen on the breakfast-should be better for a hotel of this type. Location is superb. Pricey but worth it a a treat. Overall recommend.

Room Tip: Book a suite if you can afford it, street view

My partner and I recently returned from a 9 night stay at Ohla and apart from a few minor details cannot fault this wonderful hotel. From the moment we booked our stay we were met with pleasant, friendly staff who were happy to help us gain the most from our stay.

We stayed in the junior suite which was spacious and modern and I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a little more room. The rooftop which includes a pool, bar and comfortable booths, as well as skyline views of the city is an obvious plus point, and we enjoyed spending time there at various points throughout the day both to sunbathe or recline with a cocktail. The hotel is in a terrific location to use as a base for exploring the city and within walking distance to most sites.

A few negatives are that while we were happy with the breakfast offering, we felt that more options should have been available in a 5-star hotel even if this meant at an additional cost. We were also disappointed at being turned away for lunch one afternoon at the gastrobar and felt that we should have been advised that bookings are essential, particularly as we were long-staying guests. Another small point was the fact that on a few occasions our room was not cleaned until late afternoon which could have been inconvenient for some.

Overall we had a fantastic stay and we will definitely return in the future. We would also like to Jorge for helping us to arrange our stay and taking the time to give us a tour of the amazing dome suite.

The service was for the most part good, with the staff at the restaurants being particularly friendly. We were fortunate to get a lunch reservation at sauc restaurant which I would highly recommend. Sometimes the staff in the lobby were not quite so welcoming. The check in and out also was a pain free process. I was pleased to note there was free wifi in the room. The room was comfortable but rather small given the almost 300 euro per night fee. The biggest let down was the rooftop pool which although very nice you are kicked out of at 18:30 in favour of setting up the bar. The location is very good and close to many attractions and good shopping. The spa is also nice and I had a very pleasant massage one evening. Overall a good stay but I feel that the price is a little steep compared to other comparable properties nearby.

Booked this for my Wife's 40th. We were not disappointed. Superb hotel within walking distance of all the main sites and ideal for exploring the old town. Junior suite room was spacious and comfortable and the staff could not have been more polite and helpful.

The rooftop bar and pool was the icing on the cake with great views across the city.

Would definitely stay there again to spend time in this beautiful city.

Room Tip: The junior suites are worth the extra due to the increased space.

We have just returned from a 4 night break at Ohla Hotel.

The hotel is perfectly situated in the centre of Barcelona with only a few minutes walk from some of the big squares, las ramblas and shopping areas.

We stayed in a design room which was a lovely size and the bed was huge and extremely comfy. The wardrobe had plenty storage space and the shower was fantastic. Check in was a breeze and we were given a lovely glass of chilled cava upon arrival. Unfortunately our room was not ready when we arrived at 2PM but we only had to wait for an hour and went straight up to the rooftop pool while we waited – this was the best part of the hotel for me -. It boasted beautiful views of the city and the pool was a perfect size to chill in the sunshine with sun loungers and large sofa areas. I noticed a few reviewers complain about not getting a seat but we were always able to get and we stayed over a busy weekend.

The staff at the hotel were all lovely and a special recommendation to the Concierge who were fantastic, all of their restaurants they suggested were 5 star and in particular recommended one of the best Seafood Restaurants in Barcelona where we had one of the greatest meals of our life. The hotel also gave us a complimentary bottle of Cava for my partners birthday which was a lovely treat.

My only fault of the hotel would be the price of the cocktails averaging at 16 euros per cocktail. This was quite excessive considering some of the bars nearby sold cocktails for half the price. However, some of the cocktails in the bar downstairs were worth the price as they were made by a world-class cocktail maker.

During our stay we also got the chance to take part in the Cocktail Making Class which was absolutely fabulous and worth every penny!

I would definitely stay at Ohla next time I visit Barcelona and will highly recommend to all my friends and family.

Wow! Well worth the money. From the moment we walked in the service was brilliant! Room was on the small side but nice. Roof top bar views are amazing and staff can t do enough for you. I really don t mind paying for somewhere where this attention to service and detail is this good.

The building stands out for the sculpture on the facade by world-renowned artist, Frederic Amat.

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.
