Hotel Ofelias Barcelona Review & Erfahrungen

By 09:59 ,

Before I´m gonna show you all the pics of gorgeous Barcelona I wanted to focus on the hotel I stayed in. For a weekend shopping break I was looking for a hotel that ticked the following boxes and I found OFELIAS

I do never rush into booking anything before checking all pictures I find and read all the reviews and again my tactics proved to be right again. OFELIAS is located in a small street, just off Plaza Espanya, that was surprisingly quiet at night! A metro station and the grand shopping mall Arenas Barcelona is just across the street, offering plenty of opportunity to grab food, get groceries or go shopping ( open until 10pm ). To get to all the important sights, metro was our transportation of choice and we found it very reliable, quick and safe ( especially compared to Paris), all points of interest were less than 15 min away from our hotel. Airport busses run just outside the hotel from Plaza Espanya to both terminal every 5 minutes, a taxi was 28€. 

The hotel is perfectly chic decorated, truly deserving the title "design boutique hotel". Less than 50 rooms make the atmosphere relaxed, quiet and for central Barcelona very un-touristy. Our room was spotlessly clean, enhancing the white clean interior of the room. The bathroom is openly integrated into the room, which gives the city-sized rooms a more spacious feel,  but don´t worry- of course the toilet is separated.

Exploring a new city I definitely need a good breakfast to start my day (nothing more boring than ending up in Starbucks every morning ) and I was surprised to find such a great choice in a country that doesn´t celebrate a big breakfast and rarely has more to offer than coffee/juice bread/ham/tomato.

As many hotels in Barcelona OFELIAS offered a lovely small roof top pool, with sun beds and complimentary towels, and this was one of the nicest and cleanest I have seen. Just perfect returning from a long day of walking and having a little dip before dinner to refresh. Don´t miss to head over to the magic fountain of Montjuic that is just a 5 min walk away, for a gorgeous light show every evening!

At all times I found the hotel staff very friendly and helpful and wouldn´t hesitate a second to book again
