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.

I stayed there end of august during 2 nights : perfect location , in the center , 20 minutes from airport with taxi and 10 minutes to the beach. Friendly and efficient welcome ( lobby is small , you have to go to restaurant or bar for a discussion ) .I took a standard room , quite modern, nice design . But : the shower is in the middle of the room so it was good that i was alone , otherwise no real privacy . Bed is very good ,room was quiet . Great roof top , pool is beautiful but quite narrow , so no more that 4 or 5 people at a time . Service is nice and effcient but the waiters were joking among themselves a bit too loudly for a 5 star hotel . Breakfast is excellent, buffet with good choice in a nice dining room . I also had lunch there , it was delicious. I will come back !!!

Stayed here for three nights in July. We ended up here by accident after our original hotel cancelled, but couldn’t have worked out better. The junior suite is generous by any hotel’s standards and the bathroom is excellent. The hotel is really well located, and we more or less walked everywhere. You can walk to the really nice restaurant district of Born and the beach very easily as well. The staff were really helpful and couldn’t do enough for you, despite the challenging circumstances all hotels find themselves in at the moment. The rooftop bar is the highlight though, with stunning views across the city, great cocktails and and a great soundtrack. Sitting in the pool and then having drinks up there was a highlight of the holiday. We especially enjoyed the rooftop bar’s ‘Instagram corner’ where bored but clearly well trained boyfriends/husbands would take 847 pictures of a partner pouting at various different angles or acrobatic poses. The one woman dance routine on one occasion was a little much though. Maybe we’re just too British. When things return to normal (please!) we will definitely be back. Strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bit of style and luxury in their holiday. Special shout out to the reception staff who were very patient with my Spanish! It made me feel much more competent than I am.

We had an incredible time here. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel safe and reassure us about Covid and hygiene policies. The room was astounding. I’ve never seen such an impressive shower! The bed was huge and the pillows were astonishingly comfy. The rooftop pool is wonderful.

My husband and I stayed 3 nights here in 2019 summer. We came here mainly becoz the a US TV series "Blind spot", thats why the 1st thing we did after checkin was going to the rooftop pool with bar had a bottle of champagne. The view was super but the pool was smaller than I expected, yet it was still magnificent to take nice selfies with your love one ^^ Room was nice, very clean. . Housekeeping superb. Loved the scent of the aromatherapy. Even staffs were very friendly and but yet not so professional, few things we wre not really happy with. 1. Rooms were not ready, it was 1.5 hr later than when we should get. 2. the breakfast was just OKAY , we were there around 9am , it was not late. But bread counter already some dry bread left. Not much choice that we were a bit upset. We did complain to the hotel manager, and I have to say they did make up everything. Next morning the buffet was much nicer, so we were happy again. Overall, it is still a very nice hotel. The room was really beautiful that we could stay 2 weeks easily. At last, thanks Rafa , he was a really nice guy who always took care of our luggage and my car.
