“Just perfect.”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

Took my girlfriend here for our first trip away together and the only fault I can find is I've probably set the bar WAY too high!

We stayed in January, and it was honestly the best hotel I've ever stayed in. From the moment we walked through the (impressive) door the service we received was everything you could hope for and beyond. The staff, every single one of them, were welcoming, attentive and gave the impression that absolutely nothing would be too much for them. Check in was a breeze (aided by some rather nice drinks) and the staff working took the time not only to fill us in on the hotel, but also of the main attractions of the city AND the best way to get around them and make the most of our trip. A nice touch was due to some roadworks at the entrance to the hotel we were upgraded to a side room (even though not once did we actually see or hear any roadworks). But it's this level of care and attention that really stands out.

And then we walked in to the room. The pictures on any website you may see don't do it justice. For a couple on a romantic break you simply could not get better. The bed, so incredibly comfy. The bathroom, perfect. The shower (yes it does deserve it's own mention!) simply incredible! Storage, great, facilities, great, wifi, great... You get the impression.

Breakfast was equally good. The selection was wide and the food fresh. Again service was spot on.

Overall I can not recommend the Ohla enough. Every single aspect exceeded my hopes. I did nearly knock one off for value, but even though the hotel's not the cheapest, you get what you pay for. And the Ohla was worth every single cent.

Room Tip: Book anything here and you won't be disappointed!

The Ohla is a very smart city hotel that oozes style and has excellent staff. It is ideally placed for seeing Barcelona with a five minute wander to the main square and shopping district. There are numerous quality tapas and other eateries all around although the hotel gastrobar is as good or better than any we tried. Tone of the highlights was STphe two daybus tour pass is worth getting if you want to see the sights although one of the highlights for us was the hospital of St Paul a few stops on the metro away. The theatre across the road is worth a visit - just for the architecture if nothing else. Barcelona is all about architecture and style. Four days is probably enough to see it and the Rambalas is overrated!.

Room Tip: The higher specification rooms to the front are worth the extra cost

Excellent hotel in the historical center and only 300metres from las ramblas. Very polite and available staff and above all the professionality of sig fausto; if you do not know what to do to ask him.
The breakfast has plenty of choice.
The terrace has a great view.
The cocktails are served at very original.
The rooms are stylish,quiet and very clean!
We will certainly return.

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend at Ohla hotel to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. The booking process was easy and it was lovely to be asked what bed linen, pillow type and bed sheet aroma we would like prior to the visit! (thanks Jorge!)

We had a junior suite on the 4th floor and it was clean and modern. Always smelt nice too! We found the rooftop a real treat, but weren't brave enough to have a swim!

Breakfast was really good, with a continental buffet. We didn't eat any other time in the hotel as felt it was a little over priced.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and we had a fantastic restaurant recommendation from Daniele which made our last night one to remember.

We would recommend Ohla to anyone visiting this beautiful city, it's conveniently located being right in the heart Barcelona.

we had a great stay at hotel ohla: the rooms are nice and well decorated, the staff is friendly and competent staff. The view form the roof top is gorgeous and you can enjoy a drink next to the pool whilst admiring the view on Barcelona...

Room Tip: rooms on the street can be a bit noisy

We stayed at the hotel in March for a long weekend. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and the hotel has not scrimped on style.
The bathrooms are well fitted with walk in showers.
The hotel is ideally located for the Gothic sector, Placa Catalunya, and the Rambla. Its a short walk to most places.

Tips: always use the bath mat as the bathroom is a wet room so you can end up with a puddle in the 'dry area'. And ask for a room on a higher floor. We were on the second floor and could hear the trains underground sometimes.

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.

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. ... more   less
