My girlfriend and I stayed in July and would happily return.

Take the aerobus from the airport, as it's cheap and very tourist friendly. Get off at the first stop (plaza espanya), hotel is about 100m away. Lovely entrance, and smell, as you walk into the hotel. Rooms are clean, neat and have everything you need, yes, including Wifi!!! (Note to all hotels, tourists need wifi as much as we need things like towels and toilet paper!!!). About a 30 min walk into las ramblas and the gothic qtr where it is very busy. Train ride is only about three stops to catalunya station. Take trains everywhere, it's so easy once you get the hang of it and is much cheaper than taxis. Lastly, for a quick easy meal after a long flight, just go yo the top of the shopping centre straight across the road from the hotel. Once you settled in though, eat in the main city area around las ramblas, it's so cheap. Take the aerobus back to the airport but ask reception where it is as it is in a slightly different spot to the first drop off

We had a 3 night stay here in July 2014. I decided to book a luxury room with a spa bath, bathrobe slippers, free mini bar, tea/coffee facilities etc. When we arrived they said the room wasnt ready but they could get a room with a terrace ready in half an hour. When we got into our room it was lovely and clean etc but the bed was two singles pushed together (not great for a romantic couples break) and there was no bath, no tea/coffee no bathrobe/slippers and the mini bar was incomplete and came with a price list. I contacted reception (where the staff were continually pleasant, welcoming and helpful) and explained this. She said I could see the other type of room the morning after but she recommended seeing it first as the ones with the king size bed and spa bath did not have a terrace/balcony. My partner and I viewed the room but he decided it was nicer to have a terrace than the bath (the terrace does not have a very nice view but there's nothing the hotel can do about that). I informed reception that we wished to stay where we were but could we have all the extras sent to the room which was promptly obliged. I do feel as though this should have been their idea but they were very obliging.

The room was very clean and tidy, the shower very good, the terrace had a lovely comfy sofa and a table and chair with red flowering plants and a lamp. The air con in the room can get cold but is adjustable. Perhaps quite a personal room for a non-couple to share as the shower was open with no door and had an opaque panel in the middle for modesty, as did the toilet (so in theory someone could look over!). There is a flat screen tv but only 1 English speaking channel (BBC World or something). Everywhere in the hotel is BEAUTIFULLY decorated, very classed and tastefully lit. The hotel is exactly as their own pictures described. The whole place is very classy; glass lifts, designer lighting, wooden floors, flowers, massive bookcases etc.

The pool is rather small but very clean and great for a cool off. It is only wide enough for one person to do lengths and not deep enough to jump in but we still enjoyed it. Around the pool there are proper upholstered beds (3 doubles which were singles pushed together) and a couple of table and chairs. There is always a bucket of pillows and clean towels at the stairs and the staff fold towels and place them on the beds during the day.

Breakfast was really nice. Literally something for everyone: scrambled egg, bacon, grilled tomatoes, chipolatas (which unfortunately were usually cold) a fresh white and brown sliced bloomer everyday, normal sliced bread and a toasting machine, different types of bread rolls, different pots of jams marmalades and nutella, pastries, cereals, cured meats and sliced cheeses, fresh fruit, yoghurts with bowls of oats, coconut, apricots, dates, honey and walnuts, orange juice, oat milk, normal milk, peach juice, different sorts of teas and lovely coffees. If you say there was nothing on there for you then its definitely not the Ofelias' fault! Again the breakfast room was nicely air conditioned and beautifully decorated with an outdoor area to sit in.

All in all we loved staying here. It was a bit more expensive than what I'd usually paid but you do get quality. Staff were great, free wifi was great, rooms great, breakfast great, location was great, seconds away from a main metro station and the simply stunning musical fountain displays next to the Placa d'Espanya. Shopping centre literally outside the front door and if you stay here you should try Dim Sum Wok just on the same street and Pura Brasa just out onto the main street. If... when we go back to the beautiful city of Barcelona I would want to stay here again. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Get a room with a balcony, good for siestas, drying out clothes, sunbathing when the sun is there

Stayed for the second time for two nights at Hotel Ofelias in June. The location is very good and the pool on the roof is great, although the weather did not cooperate. The shower is great and beds are comfortable.

The only thing I would suggest is that they are better at recognizing repeat customers. When I mentioned we stayed last year, the receptionist was very happy and "put a star" on our reservation. The star doesn't mean or get us anything, so why tell us we have a star? Also, some of the daytime front desk staff couldn't seem to be bothered to say hello.

Otherwise, this is a great hotel and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure to request a double bed as otherwise you will get two twins pushed together.

Great staff always enthusiastic. Helped us book for the Sagrada Familia ( don't go without booking).
Well positioned hotel,we enjoyed the walking and taking in the street life but easy to get a taxi and when the hotel did call one it was very quick. Light and modem rooms and everything worked. No bathroom door ( presumably to save space) not a problem for us, the loo did have a door!
Breakfast buffet was refreshed regularly but suggest you check what is included in your room rate, gorgeous fresh coffee.
We loved our stay and would recommend this hotel to couples and families with civilised children.

My boyfriend suprised me for my birthday to a trip to Barcelona ;) when he showed me where we would be staying I was stunned ;) it looked beautiful!!!
When we arrived to the hotel the entrance was just breath taking and it smelt of fig (really warm and inviting) we was created by a lovely lady who then upgraded us to the Deluxe Double bedroom on the 6th floor ;) the room was stunning, double mirror bathroom, shower, massage bath, robes, slippers, hair dryer, glass of champagne and water! We was amazed at the room, very clean and spacious - overlooking real Barcelona and seeing how they live!!
The hotel was very quiet which was lovely!
The pool on the 7th floor is really nice ;) the first day we arrived we had it all to ourselves, but the next two days we where there it was busy as it was bank holiday weekend so a lot of shops in the main area was shut!
The breakfast was AMAZING!!! Super delish, lots to choose from and laid out nicely!
Staff where very helpful and made our 3 days pleasant!

I would highly recxomend this hotel for short breaks :)
It's great for couples!!

Spent 3 nights in this very convenient hotel. Staff helpful, good breakfast, well thought out room layout and liked the overall decoration which is very modern.
Near metro and tourist bus stop, so very easy to get around the city. My flight wasn't leaving until the evening so I paid a supplement to stay longer in the room.

Room Tip: I had a room at the back. No noise issues but you also see the back of the nearby buildings, not th...
