In contrast to the exterior the hotel inside is very modern and stylish in a very minimalistic way. The staff is always helpful and even though a mixup with our room lead to us receiving a smaller room during our first night - we arived around midnight - they discovered their mistake and took action immediately. Aside from the apology we were granted the lower room rate for all days.

The bed was excellent with a variety of choices for pillows. All rooms have an iPhone - soundsystem and free wifi.

The bar in the hotel is excellent with two bartenders making an art out of cocktails.

Breakfast is also very nice.

I can only recommend this hotel and will return for sure.

Check in and check out was a bit weird and long winded but the customer service was excellent and the rooms were perfect. Excellent quality with all the fixtures and fittings, very comfy bed and ideal location for Camp Nou, attractions and the Port.

I stayed with a friend for a weekend for my 40th birthday. The location is perfect. We were up-graded to the Junior Suite. The room is very contemporary as is the bathroom. However, there was no bath, only a rainfall-shower. The bathroom steams up very quickly if you are showering for anything longer than a quick shower and go. The mirrors are not steam-free. There is no other mirror in the main room at all. There didn't seem to be many channels on the tv, one or two british speaking channels. There is no tea and coffee facilities, you have to request these together with the fact that there are no ironing facilities in the room, which for a 5-star hotel I find surprising. The roof top pool area is lovely, although fairly small for a large hotel. They did organise a 'surprise' for my birthday which turned out only to be a bottle of wine - which unfortunately I don't drink. The breakfast is also a little disappointing for a 5-star hotel. We felt that we 'inconvenienced' the waiting staff for asking for something cooked. There is an internet facility which is by way of a notebook by the reception area. For the price and service, I would consider looking at other hotels in the area.

Room Tip: Although the room faced the suite, we were on the 7th floor so there was no road-noise.

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.

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
