The Ohla hotel is housed in a very beautiful building right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. The service at reception is very good and the concierge very helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are modern with good quality bed linen etc.
The roof terrace and pool has a great ambience but it is practically impossible to get a sunbed unless you get up at the crack of dawn to reserve one with your towel.
Overall this hotel is good but there was one major disappointment. The quality and choice of the food in the breakfast restaurant is decidedly average. The portions of the ordered hot dishes are tiny. It's almost as if they have cut corners because the breakfast is included in the nightly rate.
The staff in the restaurant have a completely different attitude to the staff in the rest of the hotel, being slow and apathetic. We ate in this restaurant once during our stay and I would advise anybody coming here toy eat out as there are some fantastic restaurants in Barcelona.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ohla Hotel is a five-star boutique hotel located in the historical center of the city Barcelona, surrounded by three of the city's most popular sight-seeing and shopping areas: the Gothic Quarter, the Born and the Eixample. Inaugurated in February 2011, its location is perfect for tourism, shopping or business, with a fusion of calm serenity and the bustle of downtown Barcelona. The project has left untouched the building's historical facade from 1920 and other listed elements, including the main staircase, while giving the establishment a cutting-edge, minimalist interior design that combines various textures of black, white and oak wood. The building stands out for the sculpture on the facade by world-renowned artist, Frederic Amat. The hotel has 74 rooms, all equipped with a 40-inch TV screen and satellite channels, free Wi-Fi, telephone, safe box with room for a 17-inch laptop, adjustable lighting, individual thermostat, Egyptian cotton sheets, robe, slippers, kettle and minibar. Its culinary spaces are one of the highlights of the hotel, which locals consider great meeting points: La Plassohla (tapas and small plates), Sauc Restaurant (with one Michelin star) and Boutique Bar (considered one of the best cocktail bars in the world by the international trade press). Foodies that want to get a first-hand look at how our chef works have the opportunity to sit at the "KitchenBar" inside the kitchen at Sauc Restaurant. The terrace and the enclosed pool, the only one of its kind in Barcelona, have been called one of the best places to relax and enjoy a spectacular view of the city. Meeting rooms, gym, sauna and massage room, internet corner and parking garage are just some of the other services the department of Public Relations can offer to even further personalize each guest's stay and ensure it is an unforgettable experience. In short, a world of experiences that the whole Ohla Hotel team offers guests looking for a hotel with charm and personality in the center of Barcelona. ... more less
