"Beautiful Old Quarter Location ! Fantastic bar!"
Right by the cathedral and Palau de la Musica Catalana was across the street. We loved the upstairs bar on the roof but the Mojitos were very pricey. The tiny pool is useless. The real rockstar place in the hotel was the main street restaurant. We ate there three times and had breakfast there also since it was included in our hotel package and the food […] was incredibly delicious. The waitstaff in there were truly magnificent - the Maitre D' was fabulous - we absolutely loved him - so charming! As for our hotel room, the double glazed windows were great. We were on the 2nd floor and could here the distant rumbling of the underground but did not find it too disturbing. Everything was very clean but we were a bit upset that we had a queen size bed instead of a king size bed we paid for. We were only there for two nights and were too tired to complain when we came in but I hate it when the check in woman just can't be bothered to do it right. The concierge desk were very nice but seemed more interested in the football scores sometimes and did not order a taxi for the airport when we asked the night before. Luckily we came down for breakfast and doubled checked so it was there when we came down with our luggage. It is about total 35 euros to the airport by taxi. They add about a 10 euro charge to the fares so don't be surprised if you see another charge tacked on to your fare. All in all, not a bad place to stay if you use the restaurant and the bar.

"boutique hotel experience"
Loved staying at the Ohla. The concierge was extraordinarily helpful. Great location, breakfast and upscale design.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Boutique Hotel"
The staff at the Ohla couldn't have been nicer, and Barcelona is a happening city. We got wonderful assistance and recommendations from the concierges, each of whom were helpful and attentive. The hotel is modern and incredibly well located. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. The rooftop pool is beautiful with a view of the city stretching out […] below you. We'll definitely go back to Barcelona (we were only there three nights) and look forward to staying again at the Ohla. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"staff was not very cooperative or friendly"
had a booking issue and the staff was unwilling to work with us atall to reolve our issue. would not recomend this hotel. used to be the old police department/jail that was recently remodeled. shower in middle of room not very appealing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Can't wait to come back!"
It was our first time in Barcelona - the hotel location was in the perfect area - walking distance to Las Ramblas & Eixample. The room was beautiful, hotel staff helpful & friendly, & there was a small roof area bar/pool. Great breakfast included each day as well. We'd definitely be back again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Nouveau Hotel"
This hotel could be classed as Nouveau. Very modern, very art deco-ish. The location is in the heart of the gothic area. Easy walking distance to Las Ramblas and the Cathedral. As others have written, the shower is open to the room, so modesty is out the window. The toilette is hidden behind a door that blends with the wall, so a little confusing at […] first. But overall I found the room very comfortable, clean and unique. The bellhop and concierge service are superb! They answered all our questions and then some! And there is the nicest lounge area on the roof that gives you a great view of the city. If you like super modern hotels, this is the place to be! Would I go back you ask, my answer would be ABOSULETLY! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great hotel in the perfect location...."
Had a great stay at the Ohla. Perfect location in the gothic quarter, close to everything and everyone. Was the perfect spot before our cruise. Room was clean and stylish... the shower was off the hook. Gay friendly with a helpful staff. Mojitos in the bar best over.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The OHLA was a perfect hotel for our stay in Barcelona. The room was outstanding, the roof top bar was wonderful, the breakfast was delicious and the concierge service was A+. I highly recommend the OHLA for anyone staying in Barcelona.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Barcelona Great Experience (Starts with the hotel)"
First timer in Barcelona. We arrived at Barcelona really early so our room was not ready but they allowed us to pre-check in our bags allowing us to go discover Barcelona. To top that they even upgraded our room for free since we were only staying there for one day. The complimentary breakfast was also amazing not like a cheap HoJo complimentary breakfast. […] The staff really goes out of their way to meet your needs. If you plan on going to Barcelona I highly recommend this hotel and ask for Angelo in the front desk he will bend over backwards to help you out. Great experience!

"Walking Distance to Everything!!!"
Other than them taking a while to get our room ready at check-in, it was an excellent stay. The free breakfast each morning was amazing!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and elegant"
The hotel is well situated in old Barcelona. The taxi fare from the airport was around 38 euros for 2 people and luggage. It is a fairly new hotel and the condition of the room was top notch. We stayed in a junior suite which was quite roomy by European standards and had a separate tub and shower. After a long day of sightseeing, the room was a comfortable […] place to unwind and get ready for the next day. One thing that is worth noting is that the HVAC/climate control was very quiet and comfortable. It was never too cold or too warm in the room. The bed was comfortable and the towels were fluffy and soft. The breakfast that was included with the room was filling. You get a choice of 1 hot dish (eggs with bacon, pancakes, or hamburger) with unlimited croissants, breads, cheeses, sliced coldcuts, fruit, juice and coffee. The staff was very helpful. Albert ,the concierge, arranged reservations at a few restaurants for us. We chose to dine at Sauc, the hotel's restaurant with 1 Michelin star. It's a cozy place that only has about 10 tables. We ordered from the "tasting menu" and were expecting to be hungry at the end, but the portions for the main course were generous and we were not able to finish every single morsel of that delicious dinner. Another concierge showed how to get a taxi quickly. On our departure, they arranged a taxi for us to the airport and the fee was approximately the same as the arrival. I would stay here again the next time I visit Barcelona. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Within walking distance - nice neighborhood"
I only had 48 hours to spend in Barcelona. The Ohla Hotel made it possible to enjoy every minute. Well situated in old Barcelona, it was quick walk to La Rambla and all the sights in between. We arrived early and just expected to drop off our luggage and check in later, but they gave upgraded us from a design room to a junior suite. The concierge service […] was personalized. Albert, the head concierge made dining reservations for us at Can Majo, Sauc and El Nou Ramonet as well as summon a cab for us when we left. Our junior suite was spacious by european standards. The wifi worked well. The ipod dock meant that i could keep my charger cables packed away. As mentioned before, there aren't any doors to the bathroom area except for the toilet. The room has some neat design inspirations and lighting. The climate control system works well. The room was never too hot or too cold. The bed was firm and comfortable for us. Although it rained on our last evening, the pool area and lounge on the 8th floor was a nice place to hang out. There is a phone that can be used to call for drinks from the bar. An attendant came up within a few minutes while we were up there to check on us and to let us know how things worked. Dining at Sauc was an experience. They modified the tasting menu for us. The portions for the tasting menu were generous. I actually got full by the main course entrees. Service was a little slow towards the end. The breakfast buffet is a treat from all the croissants, cheeses, fruits, cold cuts. They give you one hot dish per person, which was a choice between eggs and bacon, pancakes/waffles or a hamburger with cheese and bacon, which was very good :) It was almost 40 euros to take a cab from the airport to this hotel. About 9 euros to take a cab to Can Majon from this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Barcelona in two days"
Great location. Staff was responsive and helpful. Very modern decor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Eyeballs in the middle of Barcelona...."
As an Expedia VIP member we did not receive any benefits which was disappointing. Otherwise the location of the hotel was great as was the breakfast they served each morning. Loved the outside of the building with eyeballs all over the backside and the pool roof top had a spectacular view with a glass pool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a 5 star hotel"
This is certainly not a 5-star hotel. The lobby is tiny and the reservation desk is in a miniscule alcove on the mezzanine floor. The room we had was real small with a non-existent view. We basically looked over the rooftops of surrounding buildings. A view room was available but they wanted to charge us 90 Euros a day more. Breakfast was OK - nothing […] to write home about. We had just come from a stay at the W which offered a terrific breakfast in comparison. The location is excellent. It is very close to the Barcelona Cathedral and abuts the Gothic district. It is an easy walk to many major sights, including the Spanish Arc de Triomphe. The finest bakery in Barcelona, Hoffmans, in the Born Plaza has croissants to die for and is a 7 minute walk from the hotel. The subway is across the front door and the main Gaudi house is 10-15 minutes walking distance. Unbeatable location. If you intend to spend any time in the hotel to relax, it is just too tiny for that. When we left, the hotel either made an error or tried to gyp us by charging us for an upgraded room that we never took. Seems like they were presenting us with someone else's bill. Left a bad taste in the mouth. Overall, it should be a 3-1/2 stars hotel and does not qualify as a 5-star property Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazing hotel in a great location"
The room, staff, and atmosphere in this hotel are all amazing. Also, the breakfasts we ate there along with the one dinner were delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel to couples who enjoy being able to walk to all the major areas in Barcelona.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Don't pass this Hotel up!"
My partner and I booked a junior suite and requested an early checkin. The room was ready and waiting. Our package included breakfast and we were not disappointed. The room was great as was the service. The rooftop pool was incredible and the views of the sunset should not be missed. This hotel is conveniently located, with the metro close by, the gothic […] quarter, Picasso Museum, and Gothic Cathedral. Exceptional value. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Ohla Hotel- Ola!"
This hotel was beautiful- it was in a convenient location and was easy to get to most places from there. The lobby, retaurant and rooms are beautiful and immaculate. All of the people were warm and friendly and went out of their way to provide great service. Two minor issues to be aware of: one is the bathroom arrangement. Some rooms have glass enclosed […] showers in the middle of the room with no privacy. Others have a more private shower area, but generally only toilets are behind a closed door. We just found this odd. The other is that the room was very spacious with ample closet space for hanging, but no drawer space for folded stuff. Other than that we loved the place and would recommend it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

The Ohla is a fantastic hotel! The staff was polite, helpful, professional, courteous and went above and beyond to ensure a great stay.

My husband and I spent one week at the Ohla Hotel in Barcelona.

“A great Hotel!” Oct 15, 2011 skuwaiti This was my first visit to Barcelona. I picked this hotel based on reviews of other travelling and i was very pleased with my choice. central location, brand new hotel (less than a year old). very pleasant staff who were quite humble and helpful. very quick room service. nice breakfast buffet. clean and quiet […] rooms. A few stuff missing to make it a superb hotel: 1. Movie services ( they must have been kidding me when they brought me a DVD player when i requested watching some paid movies!) 2. make sure you dont get two adjacent twin beds when u requested specifically a king size bed! 3. Lower the prices a bit! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Loved this Hotel"
This hotel was beautiful and in a great location. It was within a 5 min walk of the Cathedral and within a 10-15 min walk from great shopping. The hotel staff was great. The concierge was very nice and made some great restaurant recommendations. The restaurant at the hotel was really good too. We had breakfast there every day because we loved the fried […] bread coated with cinnamon and sugar - it was delicious. The wait staff was really nice, but they needed more people. Service was slow. We didn't mind so much though because we weren't in a hurry. The rooftop pool was really cool and had amazing views of the city. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything about the Ohla was wonderful. Rooms were nicely appointed and comfortable, the breakfasts were outstanding and the location could not be beat. The hotel staff was professional and very helpful and helped us whenever we needed it. Wonderful rooftop bar/pool area. Always clean, plenty of towels and excellent staff at the bar.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel and fantastic location. Very modern and new. Fitness room was small, but appropriate for vacation workouts. The rooms are better suited for couples, and are not particularly family friendly, as the shower is basically a windowed showcase in the middle of the room. Staff was courteous, attentive, polite and helpful. Language barriers were […] rarely an issue. Rooftop pool area was small, but lovely. We stayed on the first floor, and you definitely could hear the street noise, and the sound of the metro, so if silence is what you are looking for, you might wish to ask for another floor. Would definitely stay at Ohla again, and do recommend. it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not all that impressed"
First of all the hotel itself was wonderfully located. However, I didn't understand why the shower was in the middle of the room no frosted glass. I was there with my mother so you can imagine the situation? We had an issue working the shower and asked repeatedly to have someone come to the room and show us. Nobody ever came to assist us luckily I was […] able to figure it out. Not completely dissatified but not totally happy with the situation especially since I was only there for one night.

Great Hotel, very friendly staff. The room was different from any room I have ever been in and my wife and I both loved it.

"Good central option"
Nice central hotel. I booked a deluxe room for my three day visit in Barcelona which could have been a bit bigger. Modern decoration, beautiful terrace on top of the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
We recently vacationed in Barcelona at the Ohla Hotel at the end of July and truly enjoyed our stay. We booked the Design Deluxe room, and were given a room on the 1st floor which was not optimal due to the noise from the metro and the noise from the street. I immediately asked reception if they could switch the room, but was told they were completely […] sold out. But after being awoken the next morning at 8am from the noise I called reception and they were extremely accommodating moving us to the 6th floor and even let us look at the room to make sure we were happy before making the change. The hotel is in a great location in the Barri Gotic neighborhood with an extremely friendly staff. The decor is modern and clean with a fantastic roof top deck with incredible views. I would definitely stay at the Ohla Hotel on my next visit to Barcelona! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Hotel close to La Rambla"
My wife and I decided to stay at Ohla Hotel following our European cruise. It was a very pleasant surprise compared to previous hotels we stayed in Barcelona before our cruise! We arrived at the hotel very early in the morning before check-in, but the staff was extremely accommodating and provided us with lots of information on things to do before check […] in. The room was large, modern, and very clean. We defintely enjoyed the rainforest shower head. An incredible aspect of the hotel is the beaitiful roof-top swimming pool/lounge area. It had an incredible view of the surrounding city. It was within a 5 minute walk to La Rambla. The staff was very nice and went out of their way to make us comfortable. We would definitely stay at Ohla Hotel again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ohla Hotel in Barcelona Jly 2011"
The hotel is located in a perfect spot in the Gothic quarter of Barcelona, surrounded by incredible ancient architecture. The hotel just opened in February of this year and has some interesting "modern" decorations stuck into a classic old museum exterior. The accomodations are very modern and comfortable if a little strange with several all black interiors. […] Less than 5 min walk to Las Ramblas, the Cathedral, Placa Catalunya and as many tapas and sangria places as you can handle. The weather stayed in the high 70's and low 80's until the sun went down at 930. We took the "tourist bus" to get an idea of the city and highly recommend it if you haven't been to the city before. Do not miss the Picasso museum (mostly early works) nor either of the Gaudi masterpieces (Casa Batllo or Casa Sagrada). Casa Sagrada is a ways away from the hotel, but on the toursit bus, you can get off and reboard anytime you want. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Ohla Hotel - In the Heart of Barcelona"
Ohla Hotel is located in downtown Barcelona. The hotel is conveniently located within reasonable walking distance to Barcelona metro transportation including subway stops. The neighborhood is good, and we were never concerned with late night walks in the area. Hotel rooms are of good size, and room had an interesting shower in the middle of the room, […] with glass walls (leaving nothing to the imagination :-). Hotel had a roof bar with a great view of Barcelona and a infinity lap pool, and downstairs there was an excellent bar/restaurant specializing in tapas. The hotel staff was very helpful in us enjoying our stay in Barcelona. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Odd feel and smell. They tried to take an old building and make it modern and new..black on white motif throughout. Lots of dark which instead of elegant, I thought was just there. The pool on top of the building was refreshing.... a aquarium for people.Genuine Expedia guest review
"All about location!"
We loved our stay @ Ohla ! It was not our first time in Barcelona- Ohla is located just in the center of the gothic area. All is in walking distance; attractions, shopping and great food! We will come back !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great new hotel in Barcelona!"
We were on a cruise ship prior to coming to this hotel, the hotel held our luggage for us until our room was ready, they were very accommodating to us. We booked this hotel because it was new, loved the contemporary decor. The shower is in the middle of the bath and is 3 clear glass walls so if you don't like showering in front of your travel companions […] then this hotel is not for you! The beds were extremely comfortable. We didn't use the fitness room so can't rate that, we looked at the pool terrace, if we had time it would have been nice to use it. Pool was small, for swimming laps only, since it was on the roof there were limited lounge chairs so you would have to stake out a chair early in the day. The concierge were all nice and friendly except for the older gentleman who didn't really understand English very well. I think they were all from France. The lights required a key card at the door, a bit confusing but my daughter figured it out and was able to turn lights on when needed. We were provided with a complimentary bottle of water at check in in our room and free WiFi during our whole stay as a plus. We ate dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, it's pricey but excellent quality, portions were small. The bar is phenomenal, just as mentioned in an earlier review that we read, the bar tender puts on a show when making the drinks, drinks are very exotic and strong too, not watered down. We would definitely return to this hotel if we travel to Barcelona again. Loved it! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic hotel in Barcelona!"
Incredible hotel,great location, more than helpful staff and beautiful rooms Cant wait to go backGenuine Expedia guest review
Great stay. Ultra modern style hotel in really good location of Barcelona. Room was great and everything in order. One funny thing though: The shower is like a glass box smack in the middle of the room. Its like showering with an audience. No privacy whatsoever in the shower. Did not bother me at all but if you are embarrassed about your body in front […] of your partner may not be for you. Hotel may have different kind of showers so you may ask them about that before you reserve. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great design hotel in a central location"
We stayed a long weekend at the Ohla and enjoyed excellent service from every staff member we met. The rooftop terrace is fantastic, with a panoramic view of the Gothic Quarter from the pool. The street outside is busy, but the rooms are quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very impressive, but lacks attention to detail."
Firstly, the Ohla Hotel is very nice indeed. A stunning building in a great location. We received a very warm welcome, and all staff speak English to a decent standard. We were slightly early for our room, so were invited to the 'welcome lounge'. There was complimentary coffee, but no cups. Complimentary juices, but no glasses. Not a particularly impressive […] start. The room (a 'design' room) was quite small, but well designed. The centre-piece shower is a bit strange, but as we were on a 'romantic getaway', it was perfectly acceptable! The free wi-fi was fine. The lighting arrangements were somewhat strange, with at least 2 bulbs not working at all. Bed was hard but comfortable. Tea/coffee facilities were there, but no coffee! A pretty basic mistake. Overall, the room was okay, but definitely not 5-star. The cocktail bar was wonderful, featuring some extremely elaborate and delicious concoctions. However, the hotel's michelin-starred restaurant ('Sauc') was truly INCREDIBLE. One of the best meals I've had in years, and the perfect end to our short trip. Overall, I probably wouldn't return to the hotel (too many loose-ends and lack of attention to the small details), but I'd DEFINITELY return to drink at the bar and to eat at the restaurant.
