5 blissful days. Such a great location and for such an 'aggressively trendy' hotel it was delightful to find no 'attitude' - just amazingly welcoming and helpful staff. The rooms were immaculate, very quiet (most unexpected given the location on a busy street) and the pool was a haven from the midday heat and perfect for pre/after dinner drinks.

Ohla was welcoming (with a glass of fizz) as soon as we entered the hotel. The staff could not have been more attentive to our needs during our 3 night stay. Our room was clean and comfortable.

The hotel is perfectly located, the staff was very helpful and the room was great. Breakfast was excellent, too. It's close to all the nice places in old town Barcelona, and the area is very silent at night. We were unable to make use of the pool, which closes at 18:30 and is extremely small.

There are two outstanding reason to stay at the Ohla - the location and the delicious pas at their restaurant. Then rooms are modern and comfortable, ours had a beautiful view of the Via Lantana... The roof top bar/pool is a bit cramped and gets crowded very easily. But overall, this is a wonderful place to stay while visiting Barcelona.

Stayed 3 nights in June. A great location near El Born neighborhood. Close to Las Ramblas but I would recommend skipping that area due to warnings about being pick pocketed.

Conveniently located in Central Barcelona is this lovely modern hotel. The room boasted a very minimal design with very clean lines. We both love modern design and this hotel really made it shine. Bed was medium firm and the breakfast was good. Best part is the hotel bar downstairs, it has some of the best craft cocktails we've ever had.

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: La Plassohla (tapas and small plates) and Boutique Bar (considered one of the best cocktail bars in the world by the international trade press). 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
