“If you return to the same hotel its gotta be good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is a great five star hotel in a prime, location between the Barri Gothic and El Born we stayed here last year and liked it so much we came back. Great service, good staff, lovely breakfasts in a super restaurant. Lovely room, unusual shower location! Great beds with super soft linens and to cap it all a rooftop pool and bar which we could swim in enen in early June. One day we must go and see the sites!!! (just joking). Enjoy.

This is a very good hotel in a brilliant location for exploring the city. We spent 4 nights at Ohla and enjoyed them all. The rooms are clean, modern and very trendy - our shower was in the middle of the room! The little rooftop terrace and pool are great for chilling out after the a busy day sight seeing. The best cocktails ever are to be found downstairs in the cocktail bar. The only critism we had was of their 'Michelin Starred' Sauc restaurant which we found disappointing and completely without any atmosphere - play some background music for goodness sake Guys! Staff are very attentive and the pre-arrival service is superb. Would definitely go back (to the hotel, not the restaurant!).

Had a long weekend away with my girlfriends. This hotel was perfect for our particular requirements. The central location was ideal for sightseeing. We very much enjoyed the roof top deck and pool late afternoon/early evening. Fabulous views over the city. Service a bit slow at the roof terrace, my only complaint. Rooms fairly small, and some may be put off by glass shower cubicle in the room (rather than in a separate bathroom) but we all had our own rooms, so no issue for us. Lovely breakfast. Great restaurant recommendation from the concierge on Saturday night followed by late cocktails in the hotel bar afterwards.

Clean hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. A call for an iron to the front desk is immediate and staff are at your room within minutes. Sexy pool and modern rooms. Only one complaint. The shower door is flush with bathroom floor and when showering the water would leak from shower into the rest of the bathroom floor which connects to the room. A towel will help soak it up but makes a mess and the floor is wet. Complimentary cava for our honeymoon. Great stay. Oh and sexy shower viewing for honeymooners!

Spent 3 nights and was very satisfied with all aspects of the hotel. The service is consistently professional, the rooms are stylish. Did not have the opportunity to try either breakfast or restaurant, but the boutique bar is excellent.

The roof top offers an aquarium-like pool, sunloungers and deliciously strong mojitos. Utmost relaxation.

The hotel has a great location and fairly nice rooms. The staff seemed very attentive and nice, only issue was some of the concierge seemed a bit too eager to jump on the same internet sites you can do yourself, not exactly value add. The restaurant for breakfast was good but needs better staffing. There was one guy who ran around doing everything and two girls who seemed clueless. Overall I would recommend the hotel.

This hotel is amazing. It is uber cool from the massive see through showers to the roof top pool. You won't regret it.
Excellent location.
Make sure to have a cockail in the bar downstairs - they are delicious!

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
