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.

Booked a trip in May and had to cancel due to covid as I couldn’t travel, cancelled in accordance with hotel and Booking.com policy, still got charged the full amount for the stay. Unbelievable ! Both hotel and booking site both denied I had cancelled the reservation despite being told by Booking.com it was in fact cancelled ! NO POINT CALLING HOTEL, MANAGERS ARE CONSTANTLY UNAVAILABLE 👀🙄

Dear Mr. Cook, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. After having investigated the issue, we have noticed that your reservation contracted with a free cancelation policy via Booking.com was never cancelled neither via Booking.com or directly with us, and therefore incurred in one night penalty per room. We are very sorry to read this post, as at Ohla Barcelona we are always open to find a solution for all our guests. If you could please kindly proof that the reservation was cancelled in any way at some point, please provide us the related information. We are sorry for your discomfort and we hope you will reconsider your review. Kind regards,

The Sangria was tasty on a beautiful rooftop! We had 3 glasses each for 33€ so it’s a bit pricy but first it’s a 5 stars hotel and you’re well located with an amazing view… it becomes acceptable on holidays! Unfortunately, the sun wasn’t here for us but still the pool and the music made us enjoying our moment there!

I stayed there end of august during 2 nights : perfect location , in the center , 20 minutes from airport with taxi and 10 minutes to the beach. Friendly and efficient welcome ( lobby is small , you have to go to restaurant or bar for a discussion ) .I took a standard room , quite modern, nice design . But : the shower is in the middle of the room so it was good that i was alone , otherwise no real privacy . Bed is very good ,room was quiet . Great roof top , pool is beautiful but quite narrow , so no more that 4 or 5 people at a time . Service is nice and effcient but the waiters were joking among themselves a bit too loudly for a 5 star hotel . Breakfast is excellent, buffet with good choice in a nice dining room . I also had lunch there , it was delicious. I will come back !!!

Dear balay29, We are glad to read that your overall stay at Ohla Barcelona was satisfactory. Location, gastronomy, rooftop terrace and staff service are among our best and most appreciated strengths, although we will address your comment about the non-5-star behaviour, so it never happens again. Thank you very much for your feedback. Looking forward to welcoming you back in future.

Stayed here for three nights in July. We ended up here by accident after our original hotel cancelled, but couldn’t have worked out better. The junior suite is generous by any hotel’s standards and the bathroom is excellent. The hotel is really well located, and we more or less walked everywhere. You can walk to the really nice restaurant district of Born and the beach very easily as well. The staff were really helpful and couldn’t do enough for you, despite the challenging circumstances all hotels find themselves in at the moment. The rooftop bar is the highlight though, with stunning views across the city, great cocktails and and a great soundtrack. Sitting in the pool and then having drinks up there was a highlight of the holiday. We especially enjoyed the rooftop bar’s ‘Instagram corner’ where bored but clearly well trained boyfriends/husbands would take 847 pictures of a partner pouting at various different angles or acrobatic poses. The one woman dance routine on one occasion was a little much though. Maybe we’re just too British. When things return to normal (please!) we will definitely be back. Strongly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a bit of style and luxury in their holiday. Special shout out to the reception staff who were very patient with my Spanish! It made me feel much more competent than I am.
