Ohla Barcelona 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: Caelis restaurant, awarded with a Michelin star; La Plassohla, 'tapas' and small plates and Vistro 49, a boutique bar specialized in wines and cocktails. 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 Barcelona team offers guests looking for a hotel with charm and personality in the center of Barcelona.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in the Gothic Quarter, Hotel Ohla Barcelona garners praise for its prime location, putting guests steps away from top attractions and shopping. The hotel's staff dedication and personalized service frequently receive accolades, contributing to the exceptional and welcoming atmosphere that defines the property. While the stylish rooms are celebrated for their cleanliness and comfort, a few guests mention they are on the smaller side. The rooftop bar's panoramic city views alongside other top-notch amenities are popular highlights, though opinions on the hotel's value for money do vary.

My wife and I just had the best short break in Barcelona staying at the wonderful Ohla Barcelona. All the staff were lovely, friendly and could not do enough for you and it's location for us to walk to all the sights was fantastic. Plus it was only 5 minute walk away from Placa de Catalunya, which is where the Aerobus stops, meaning the transfers to/from the airport was very easy. Check-in was a very smooth experience and we liked the nice touch of being offered a variety of refreshing drinks to quench the thirst. When we got to to the room we were very pleasantly surprised to find a nice bottle of cava on ice. The Concierge was very helpful in taking the time to inform us of some places/bars to visit. The Roof Top Bar was also a lovely experience, with a great ambience and views of the city. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

So, here’s the scoop on our adventure at Ohla Barcelona. My partner and I hit this spot to toast to our engagement—big times, right? The welcome wagon at this joint was top-notch. Think of walking into a party where you’re the guest of honor. That’s how the staff made us feel the second we stepped in. A solid gold start for what we hoped would be an epic stay. Room Roulette: Our first room was a blast from the past, but not the cool, vintage kind. More like, “Oops, we forgot to update heavily used items.” The shower wood was all swollen and cracked, like it took a long soak and never dried off. The buzz from the street made it feel like we were sleeping on the sidewalk, and the decor? Let’s just say it had seen better days. We’re talking chipped furniture, a TV that’s seen too many late nights, and some “vintage” (not in a good way) cupboard action. Service with a Smile: Not ones to settle, we voiced our concerns. And guess what? The Ohla team came through. They whisked us away to a room that was everything the first one should’ve been—modern, quiet, and just right. Plus, they surprised us with a little something to celebrate our engagement. Talk about turning things around! Wishlist Wonders: If I could ask for a bit more, it’d be those little luxuries that make a stay extra special. A shoe shine kit for those night outs, a comb (because who remembers to pack those?), and a few more of those fancy coffee pods and teas. It’s the little things that count, especially when you’re dropping some serious cash. Morning Glory: Breakfast at Ohla was like hitting the buffet jackpot—so much to choose from, so little time. Though, a fresh egg and some real-deal butter would’ve made my morning. But hey, the spread was still pretty awesome. Staff Shoutouts: The real MVPs of Ohla? The staff. These folks know how to treat you right, making sure we felt like the stars of the show. From the rooftop bar to the unseen sauna (next time, for sure), they made every moment count. The Verdict: Would I hit up Ohla Barcelona again? In a heartbeat. Sure, there are spots that might get the little things a tad more spot-on, but the vibe and service here? Unmatched.

We (Family of 4) would give Ohla Hotels 5 stars! The location is in the middle of the old town, easy to reach and perfect if you want to discover the city by food. The rooms are perfect - very nice interior, practical and super clean. The breakfast is very rich in terms of juices and quality of food. The roof top provided us a nice swim every morning and some unforgettable nights. And last but not least: we saw an extremely motivated, positive, competent and very friendly team from before our arrival to the very last minutes. We all four felt welcome and super positive for our complete stay of one week. We rarely ever say this: we clearly will come back to Ohla and can fully recommend a stay here.

The decor in the hotel is amazing, such cool interiors. The rooms are a good size and the decor follows through to the rooms. The staff could not have been more helpful with anything we needed. The rooftop bar is perfect for a drink after a day sightseeing...even in February. The breakfast is not extensive but is more than plenty and fresh. The location is great just on the edge of the Gothic Quarter so just a short walk to fantastic restaurants and bars. Highly recommended!

Great location and rooftop restaurant and pool. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room size was good but the bathroom was black so a little dark and hard to see what you were doing. You can walk to almost anything from here and teh metro is very close.
