Very helpful and polite staff, everyone seemed friendly, the building itself was stylish and nicely decorated, everything clean, comfortable beds and wide range of pillow selection. Perfect location.
We had stayed at the room suitable for handicapped people (which we didn't need at all, and of course that was not what we ordered). For this reason, we got a very uncomfortable bathtub instead of a shower. The glass wall did not cover anything so after each showering we had to sacrifise a towel just to mop the floor. The room was rather small, too small for our preferences. There was no coffee at the room (not a five star thing) and no ironing possibility at the room itself (once again not a really five star thing). The breakfast selection was not wide, but it wasn't a big issue as we had been staying only for 4days.
Overall, not the worst experience, definitely. The hotel has its pros and cons, just please note that it is not a five star hotel, well at least not a 5star hotel in British or Scandinavian level. Seemed more of a 4star hotel to us. Pretty reasonable prise, though.

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.
