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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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.

We stayed for four nights and were very pleased with the hotel location, room cleanliness and comfort, staff attentiveness, and overall experience. The rooftop pool is pretty but small, and the views from it are spectacular. I would recommend this hotel!

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were so excited based on pictures and reviews. However, for the price, I wasn't overly impressed with the detail. I've stayed in other hotels around the same price point and the difference, and what i expect from a 5 star hotel, is a real attention to detail - little touches like chocolates,... More

We came back for our anniversary after spending part of our honeymoon here. The suite we booked was beautiful, no different to last time and I honestly cannot fault it. The food in the brasserie is great, a very different spin on traditional tapas and the wine list is good. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. You have to stay... More

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... More

The location of this hip hotel is fantastic and is in walking distance of most things. It is ultra cool and the Design rooms are great although, as others have said, the glass shower in the middle of the room is not for the shy! The Michelin star restaurant is highly recommended - really special. I had the suckling pig... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ohla Hotel is a new five-star hotel located in the heart of Barcelona, an ideal setting for tourists, shoppers and businesspeople offering a world of experience, service and wellbeing. The calmness and serenity of the hotel combined with the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Barcelona offers a unique blend. The Ohla Hotel is built on the site of a former Roman water canal and the palace of the first Count of Barcelona, Guifré el Pilós. The current building dates back 20 years and was initially the site of Barcelona’s first department store (Casa Vilardell). The building was renovated under the direction of Alonso, Balaguer y Arquitectos Asociados with artistic assistance by Frederic Amat. During the renovation, the historical building façade and other historical elements of the initial building have been preserved in their entirety, whilst the interior design of the building is avant-garde in its approach, combining different white and black textures with oak wood. ... more   less
