“Full of style.. Exquisite taste..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2012

Stayed in junior suite. Spacious, great layout, simple and not over pretentious. Concierge was very helpful. Suggested few great restaurants nearby. Lovely experience. Location couldn't be better. 5 mins to la ramblas and plaza catalunya yet still located in quieter area of town. Enjoyed my stay.. Simple stylish vacation..!

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Ohla Hotel and found it to be a wonderful Hotel in an excellent location. Walking distance from the Aerobus which drops off at Placa Catalunya. ALL the staff were very helpful and friendly and not at all stuffy as we expected from a 5 Star Hotel. The AirCon failed on the 5th floor on day 2 and we were moved, and upgraded, to another room within 20 minutes. The highlight of the Hotel for us was the food. We ate at their Bar Gastronomique which served delicious and reasonably priced Tapas style food AND at their Sauc Restaurant where we had their Taster Menu which was FANTASTIC. The roof terrace is amazing, and if the sun is shining an amazing place to chill. The Cocktail Bar is also an unmissable experience. We cannot recommend the Hotel enough. FABULOUS!!

Ohla is a relative newcomer to Barcelona and it's easy to think that the last thing the city needs is another design over substance hotel. However, this one seems to have most things sussed and I won't be looking any further on my next visit.
We picked a design deluxe room, and were very happy with the size and amenities. Everything you'd expect from a 5 star design hotel was present - ipod docks, check; free wifi, check; shower in the middle of the room; check. The only mildly irritating point was the poor performance of the hairdryer but hopefully that was just our room - and was reported.
Breakfast was very well organised and had a good selection with a hot menu of items cooked to order.
The restaurant in the evening was buzzy and offered an interesting selection of food and it's open on a Sunday evening, something of a minor miracle.
The concierge staff were very helpful and keen to offer recommendations and when we arrived from the airport, they welcomed us by name. Clearly we were the last people that night to be arriving, but it was a very nice touch.
A great addition to the Barcelona scene.

We wanted to find a place to entertain friend and clients on Sunday evening. Anyone who has been to Barcelona would know the challenge of finding a restaurant that opens on Sunday evening in Barcelona. After a lot of internet searching we came across reviews about the bar at the Ohla hotel. Apart from drinks, it serves good food too. The atmosphere there was nice. The bar is quite spacious with tables along the wall to seat groups of 4 - 6 people. I am glad we found a nice bar with good food.

We spent 3 nights in a design room on the 5th floor. The room was very clean and comfortable, and just far enough from the noise on the busy street below. The location of the hotel is excellent - right across the street from a metro stop, and just a short walk away from a stylish neighborhood with many restaurants and cute shops. The cocktail bar on the ground floor was a little expensive but definitely worth it (try the boutique martini).

Everything was excellent, specially all the people in the reception were really polite, helpful and always with a smile. the only thing is that the service on the 1 star michelin restaurant wasnt the one i expected.
the room, we had a suite, was exactelly what i was expecting, from the photos etc. very very nice, so modern and stylish, i felt really cosy.
Finally the location is ideal, city centre, but not in the noisy places. Of course, ask for a higher floor, to avoid the trafiic noise.

Room Tip: ask for a higher floor, to avoid the trafiic noise.

From the moment we arrived until 3 days later we were treated like Royalty. Yves Vandekerckhove requires an honourable mention as he was so kind and always accommodated our needs. Hotel breakfast buffet has a good selection and was tasty. Chocolates on the bed in the evening a nice touch. Concierge service exceptional. Our favourite restaurant in close proximity was the 4CATS. Subway close by and easy to get around the City. We were on the 4th floor and had no problems. Beds and sheets were so comfy.
Thanks to all the staff for a great STAY.

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
