Reviewed yesterday NEW

I scrutinized a lot of hotel reviews before deciding to book this one for our trip to Spain in April 2017, and I'm so glad this all worked out so nicely. The Ohla had a clean, big, modern room, a great breakfast, friendly staff, and a central location. And they also have a terrific onsite restaurant (Plassohla). All in all,...

Building is very interesting with good cafe/bar, cocktail bar and rooftop terrace with excellent views. We had a Junior suite which was spacious and well appointed. Good bed, plenty of wardrobe space and a...

The hotel has perfect location in the central part of the city, our room was nice and spacious, but if you don't like the "bathroom in the bedroom" trend you should consider another hotel as the shower is in a close proximity to the bed and so is the sink. The room and the 00 are a bit dark though....

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

Dear Mrs. Felton,

First of all we would like to thank you for the interest shown in Ohla Hotel.

As you are traveling with your daughter I would recommend booking either one of our Essential rooms (this is our standard room category) or go for the Junior Suites. Both these options will offer you a bit more privacy as both our Design and Design Deluxe rooms (available twin bedded) have the see-through shower in the middle of the room.

Ohla Hotel is located in the center of Barcelona and our building has the same height as the surrounding buildings. Excellent views (overlooking the old Barcelona) you will have from our rooftop terrace. The views from our rooms are street views rather than city views.

Pre-booking your tickets for Sagrada Familia can be done on sagradafamilia.cat (this is the official site) and for Parc Guell on parkguell.cat (official site). You can do this prior to coming to Barcelona or if you prefer once at the hotel our concierge can assist you with this.

Pick pockets are around unfortunately, but in general there is no violence and if you take precautions there should not be any issue.

We are looking forward to welcoming you with us on July, and remain at your entire disposal for any further assistance you might require.

With kindest regards,

Yves Vandekerckhove

Dear Sir / Madame,

First of all, I would like to thank you for contacting us and for your interest in Ohla Hotel to finish your honeymoon.

Following your enquiry, let me inform you that both Deluxe and Junior Suites are located all over the property facing either Via Laietana (main avenue in front of the hotel) or Carrer Comtal (pedestrian street on the side), and they are at all the floors (starting on the first and finishing on the 6th). Therefore they view from the room will be either Via Laietana or Carrer Comtal.

In regards to the “things to do”, I am glad to inform you that one of the best qualities of the property is the location. We are exactly at El Gothic, which is the oldest district of Barcelona, and it is right the city center of the town. We have around us plenty of restaurants (of many different types of cuisine), museums, bars, and sightseeing spots. Also, the beach is at 10 minutes walking from us.

Please feel free to contact us in order to give you accurate suggestions according to your likes and dislikes, we will be more than happy to assist you on everything and welcome you to our lovely property.

Kind regards,

Yves Vandekerckhove
