boutique hotel in a good location
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

On arrival it felt special, reception was very friendly and helpful. Our room was a unique design and great for the one night we were staying. It was on two levels and again had a quite unique shower. Everything was top quality, and bed very comfortable. Had lunch in their tapas style restaurant, very good. The breakfast buffet was, however, very average. Would choose to stay again.

A great first experience

First of all, an incredible welcome outside by a concierge, while we were looking for the parking of the hotel.The concierge service is really efficient and pro-active for all kind of requests.

Moreover, we have had the chance to do the check-in with the Front Office Manager Mr. Jorge who has been very helpful, empathetic and friendly until the last minute of our stay.

Do not forget to have a diner in the One Star Michelin Restaurant of the hotel,(CAELIS - Chef Romain Fornell) you won't forget it at all. Once again a warm welcome and a great service. The food is just amazing and truly original using the last technics as fusion for some meals. Do not forget to book as it is one of the most famous place in the city.

The suite (Junior Suite de Luxe) we have had was very confortable, well equiped and not noisy at all even if it was situated one of the main boulevard of Barcelona. And the hotel is ideally situated for all kind of excursion and shopping (Passeig de Grassia).

Also, take the time to enjoy a drink at the main bar (Vistro 49 Wine Bar - Special thank to the french Sommelier in charge of the bar who gave us good advices) and the other one on the roof of the hotel for a late drink in a warm cove and cool/friendly service.

We shall probably be back as we have really appreciated the people, the service and the atmosphere.

We recommend you this hotel for a short or long stay.

Thanks for all.

Wonderful!

I’ve stayed in some better hotels but this place is lovely! Eye balls covering the outside and a rooftop pool make this such a unique hotel. The rooms are well catered, flat screen tv, mini bar, fully stocked with brand names too, feature shower and everything you need this was a lovely stay. The breakfast was lovely too, everything you would want cooked or continental. A glass of champagne and strawberries on arrival made this a cool stay and worthy of 5 stars! Close to the sights and a 5 minute walk to the marina. I would stay again!

Good choice
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The hotel is very central and it’s walking distance to most of the touristic attractions.
The room is spacious, clean and staff look after you with a great selection of amenities. We got a Cava wine as a welcome. Breakfast is good and there is a very good selection of savoury and sweet food. The same is for drinks. The terrace has an amazing view and it’s perfect for a cocktail. I highly recommend this place.

WHERE FORM LOVES FUNCTION

If you are fortunate enough to visit Barcelona, (whose many attractions and virtues are too numerous to extol here) do yourselves the favour of booking into the OHLA BARCELONA HOTEL on Via Laietana, 49, 08003 Barcelona, Spain, in the gothic quarter of this fantastic city.

You step into a strategically lit and very stylish hall which evokes an art gallery more than the usual hotel foyers. Concierges are polished and good at their job in mos quality hotels; the heartfelt and enthusiastic passion here immediately alert you that this is a place unlike others.

This trademark approach is continued when you take the lift up half a floor to reception to be warmly and professionally greeted by staff who goes the extra mile. This is your first taste of an approach to hospitality which is very definitely a cut above the very high standard which is expected - and usually found - in establishments of this category.

When you are ushered to your room, you are in for a treat. Again, ‘ushered’ is an inadequate term. This is usually perfectly fine in many places. Sometimes perfunctory, truth be told. Here, the approach is of a proud home owner showing cherished guests to their quarters. This was our second stay at the OHLA and this eye-widening moment applied both times. Again, this is a building dripping with architectural style and detail; unlike some ultra stylish places, however, this is ALSO a building where your every comfort is incorporated into the uber design. You will not be scrabbling around for a comfortable place to sit ….. or adequate storage for your bits and bobs, all in the name of design (as has happened to us in other places in other cities) These rooms are indeed magnificent; everything you could possibly need is there; an abundance of fluffy towels and quality amenities. Really comfortable and functional showers where the doors seal perfectly and the hot water is instantaneous. Both of these sound obvious, but again are not always the case, even in multi starred establishments. Well, here it is all perfect.

And how will you sleep? Well, having chosen the sheets and pillows you prefer prior to arrival, these are quite possibly the most comfortable beds ever! Both times we visited, the place was blissfully quiet so a wonderful night's sleep is guaranteed. By the way, your room is going to be looked after exceptionally. Again: Perfection.

Do tear yourselves away from the paradisial bed however, because breakfast is something else again. Step down to the restaurant from the foyer, again in a very stylish space. Ana attends to you with the trademark OHLA professional warmth. The buffet is varied and generous. Anyone who is not fully delighted with breakfast here, frankly, must be one of those people it is impossible to please!

This OHLA (there is another further uptown) is ideally situated in the gothic quarter, within easy distance of excellent gastronomic haunts, fabulous shopping and attractions. To mention but a few, you are minutes’ walk away (see map) from the 800year old Cathedral (450m); Gaudi’s Casa Batillo (1km); Las Ramblas (500m); the Picasso Museum (750m) in the El Born area; elegant shopping in Passeig de Gràcia (500m) and cosy treasure troves for delicious gastronomic delights. It’s all easy walking. The stunning Sagrada Familia is only a 10 minute cab ride away. Or a gorgeous walk, if you feel like discovering unexpectedly amazing architecture along the wide tree lined boulevards.

The fact that we returned for a second taste of the OHLA speaks for itself. Indeed, we would not dream of returning to Barcelona and staying anywhere else. But don't take our word for it: Go and find out for yourselves!
