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.
