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.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
