Unsatisfied with the service and level of another hotel I amended our booking to the Ohla hotel - upon arrival I knew i had made the right decision. Customer service was second to none all the staff were immaulclate, polite and very friend and not at all pretentious or stuffy which can be the case with some 5* establishments. The check in process was delightful as opposed to the normal dragged out routine, we were whisked to away to another area and offered a seat and complimentary glass of champagne in a private check in area. I really liked this personalised touch as felt it was a delightful way to start and end our vist. ( on check out my husband cheekily asked if we could get another and the request was met with of course! Which I thought was lovely) nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the level of training was of an incredible standard. In regards to the decor and furnishings they were elegant and minimal and the menu for the restaurant looked great - although we didn't dine there. The location of the hotel was perfect for us in the historic gothic quarter a mere hop and skip to the action. The building itself was a traditional building with only 75 rooms and the highlight was the roof top terrace; compromising of sofa's, sun beds and a modern small pool and bar. Note the pools in central barca aren't really pools per say and seeing some of the others - this is one you can actually swim in. Its glass structure is a great design feature and the views over the cathedral and barcelona in the distance are perfect. The room was a great size and included a seating area, lighting and very comfortable beds. In the evenings there was a turn down service and our room was always perfectly cleaned. We opted for of the quieter rooms at the back of the hotel room 202. There are a plethora of stunning tapas resto and shops nearby and i think I found the perfect hotel to experience this wonderful city in- will be back!
