We stayed here for one night pre-cruise - fab location in the centre of Barcelona. Funky, trendy vibe. Friendly, welcoming service everywhere. We were upgraded to a junior suite on arrival which was a nice surprise, plus a bottle of cava in the room. Drinks before dinner in the bar were superb - very passionate and professional barman from Italy.... More

My husband and I stayed at Ohla for two nights celebrating our wedding anniversary. The rooms are nice and clean; the location is great, everything is within a walking distance; we were lucky to benefit from the recommendations of the concierge (Mathieu) who was very helpful and provided excellent advice. There is something negative however, one hour prior to check... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was wonderful. Breakfast was included and there was lots of choices. We could wa K everywhere in the Old Town and even to Gaudi's cathedral . We had dinner at the restaurant which was exquisite. The 'Chill Out' zone was really fun and the mojitos were to die for!

We didn't stay in the hotel as we were on a package deal, however, next time we definitely will! The views over Barcelona are much better than the recommended W Hotel. The jazz and soul music on the roof top was amazing. Highly recommend this place

This is my kind of hotel. I love a good boutique hotel and Ohla did not disappoint. It has a hip and trendy vibe and the food in the restaurants was excellent. We stayed there for my husband's birthday. I noted this in my reservation and we had a yummy bottle of cava waiting for us when we arrived. Our... More

We ended up at the Ohla Hotel by accident. We had planned to stay in Peniscola, but could not find rooms. We headed towards Barcelona, calling hotels from our rental car along the way. Everything was booked, however the Ohla hotel had one room, a junior suite, available for one night. We reserved it over the phone, knowing nothing about... More

We stayed there for 4 days. Best part - middle of the city, great rooms, excellent service, breakfast spread is good (esp. for us being vegetarian). The hotel staff is really nice! They guide you very well and i remember one of them dropping us off to the midway so that we dont have any problem in locating the restaurant.... More

For me, it embodies a perfect marriage between luxury and design hotel. The minute you step out of your taxi you will notice many eyes on you. And that’s not the concierge and bellboy’s eyes I’m talking about. It is the thousands of eyes which cover the classic façade of the building, that are part of the artistic design from... 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
