I have just returned from a short break in Barcelona. The Hotel Ofelias is very nicely appointed but my stay was somewhat spoilt by the attitude of management towards a couple of issues. There were problems with the safe in the bedroom (apparently a problem with many of them) and it required a person with a key every time we wanted to open it. Secondly, the room was incredibly hot and airless. The air conditioning was not switched on and therefore we had to sleep with the window open. It was very noisy and meant sleep during the 3 days was in very short supply. This was mentioned daily to staff on reception and even on their own admission the room was exceptionally hot The day before we left, we were offered another room but we were literally on our way out for the day and did not expect to back until late , so we declined the offer but requested that the inconvenience was reflected in the bill. What a joke - we were offered 20 euros off the bill. The receptionist was embarrassed and in a very difficult position as this was definitely not satisfactory. We suggested a figure of 20 Euros a night as a gesture to acknowledge our poor experience and asked to see a manager. We arranged a time to meet back at the hotel but no manager came and the receptionist had to inform us that the owner Senora Bondia was not prepared to make any further adjustment. In terms of management style it was appalling that nobody supported the receptionist who was definitely very anxious about dealing with the situation. As we didnt want to upset her further and had a plane to catch, we had no alternative but to pay the bill.

Customer care can make or break an experience or a reputation - the situation could have been dealt with so easily but as it was, it was grossly mishandled I am left with a poor opinion of this hotel and could not recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room and check the air con and safe are working at the outset

First impressions of The Ofrlias Hotel is a great looking boutique find, we arrived to a good welcome but sadly due to the airconditioning not being switched on we had three nights of no sleep ,the room was so hot and with the window open very noisy, when we complained we were told the air condoning was due to be commissioned.
This did not happen during our stay,when we complained on our departure though the receptionist tried to be as helpful as possible the manager was not available to speak to us, by way of compensation we were offered the reduction of a bottle of wine off the bill. We felt this was very poor compensation for our lack of sleep and leaving the receptionist to sort this delicate situation out was very bad management.
This lack of customer care on our departure left a very sour taste to our othwise fantastic trip to Barcelona a wonderful city.

We found the Ofelias to be a delightful hotel. From the beautiful fragrance that greets you when walking through the front door, to the ambient lighting, the art... it was just lovely.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it is in a great location close to the metro, handy to the Aerobus bus stop, and across the street from the large shopping plaza (Plaza de Espana).

The room was quiet, the bed was comfortable. Loved the shower with its huge shower head! And nice fancy toiletries. The toilet was a bit disconcerting with its glass wall (only the bottom half is opaque)!

Service was nice and helpful, bringing ice to our room, etc. Only wish we hadn't asked for their recommendation for an authentic tapas bar. They suggested Tapa Tapa (just across the road and around the corner on the front of the Plaza de Espana). It was crap! Worst meal we had in Barcelona.

We stopped by for coffee in the restaurant one morning, but felt the breakfast was too expensive for what it was, so we never ate in the hotel. We discovered a delicious bakery down on the lowest level of the Plaza. I can still conjure up the taste of the melt-in-your-mouth sugary pastry washed down with delicious coffee... mmmmmm... Seriously, the best pastry I've ever tasted!

We really enjoyed our stay at Ofelias. It's a lovely, quiet and very clean boutique hotel very near to Plaza de Espana, an Aerobus bus stop and a Barcelona underground metro station. Staff were very friendly and very accommodating and the interior has been beautifully and tastefully designed. We would definitely stay here again and although the surrounding area wasn't that great for eateries, the metro made it simple to visit other parts of Barcelona to feast on Catalan delights! :)

Excellent... great location and nice pool on the roof for when its hot. Next door to a main line station so easy access to travel inland of Spain. I went to Zaragoza and flew back on a cheap-cheap airline as Barcelona was too expensive at the time.
