“A hidden gem - ideal for Barcelona break”
Reviewed 10 December 2013

This was a list minute break via Secret Escapes and we were very impressed by the quality of this hotel.

It was described as a boutique hotel when I read the original description, and that describes it
Perfectly. It has a very welcoming foyer, and reception area. It has around 40 rooms and these are served by 2 glass fronted lifts which add to the experience. The rooms are veryclean and modern, with an excellent open plan shower facility consisting of a wand shower and a rain shower. The one negative is there was no bath mat which would be useful for the less mobile as the shower floor could get quite slippery.

Beds were very comfortable and we had no problems with any street noise even though we had a street facing room.

Location wise this hotel is excellent. It is next to the Arena shopping centre (originally the bullring), and an easy 5 minute walk from the Placa Espanya.

TRAVEL FROM BARCELONA AIRPORT
From the airport Terminal 2, for Easyjet, we took the airport bus, at a cost of 20ish euros return for 2, payable on the bus. The driver will give change, but It's worth checking if he accepts notes larger than 20 euros. Placa Espanya is the first stop, and when off bus, you'll see the Arenas shopping centre opposite. Head for that, and Hotel Ofelias is the next side road on the right hand side.

The staff are fantastic at this hotel, they identified a great Spanish restaurant (bodega monumental) where we ate a couple of times, and also arranged a cab when we had a meal at Cinc Sentuits on our last night.

Overall, this was a fantastic value hotel, great location, fabulous staff, and we will certainly use it again when we return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 606 which overlooked the street. Was small but comfortable.

This hotel was the third and nicest hotel we stayed at in Barca. The hotel was clean and had a king sized bed. The bathroom and rain shower was nice. There is a small pool on the roof that was nice. The location was great, right near the old bull ring and the fountains as well as the metro. We would stay here again.

An excellent quality hotel in a very good location, next to Plaza Espania and on a Metro line. The staff were helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble. The room was a good size, very clean with a modern bathroom. Breakfasts were to our tastes with a good variety of food to choose from, including proper coffee. There is a pool on the top deck but given the time of year we did not use it, it did look appealing.

We stayed at this lovely hotel during October to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. The rooms are immaculate, beds very comfortable, and the entire building is beautifully decorated throughout. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming no matter what we asked of them, and I'd highly recommend a stay here. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful too. Can't fault it really.

Stayed at this hotel for three days. The room was lovely, bathroom fab and breakfast was for us perfect! Fresh fruit, cooked meats, cheeses and great selection of breads and pastries. Cooked breakfast available also. Hotel about twenty minutes from the Ramblas which was a lovely walk! Really enjoyed our stay and hopefully will return as soon as possible.

We stayed at the Ofelias hotel for five nights in October, as part of a surprise birthday trip for my boyfriend. I was particularly looking for a small, quiet hotel, slightly out of the busier areas of Barcelona, but within easy reach of the main attractions, this hotel fitted the bill perfectly.
The decor is stunning and we were delighted from the moment we stepped foot into the reception, with its vintage feel decor. Our room was lovely, with a large very comfy double bed, great bathroom and amazing shower, however probably slightly more suitable for couples as there is no door. The room has two small wardrobes but plenty of space for the two of us for five days. I emailed the hotel prior to our stay to request a balcony room, and although I didn't receive a reply, my request was acknowledged on arrival at the hotel.
The hotel is on a side road with just a slight bit of noise from the restaurants opposite the hotel, but much quieter than your usual city hotel, I can imagine the rooms at the back of the hotel to be a bit quieter.
The free wifi was a bit intermittent in the room but fine by the rooftop pool and reception areas.
The location of the hotel was great, as the Espanya tube station is just a few minutes walk and easy to get to wherever you wanted to go, we also walked to las Ramblas a few times which took about 20 mins.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel as felt it was a little pricey, there are plenty of places to eat around the hotel, including patisseries, and at the arenas shopping centre across the road.
Overall a lovely boutique hotel, and great value for a touch of luxury, with a great location.

New hotel in l'eixample district. Spotlessly clean, excellent service and very good facilities including a roof top pool. One area for improvement is the breakfast. The range of breakfast food was ok but several items were not topped up so at times the choice was limited. Apart from this I would thoroughly recommend the hoel.
