5 Star and Luxury Hotels
Barcelona Hotel Ohla
The Barcelona Hotel Ohla is a new five-star hotel located in the heart of Barcelona, an ideal setting for tourists, shoppers and business people offering a world of experience, service and wellbeing. The calmness and serenity of the hotel combined with the hustle-and-bustle of downtown Barcelona offers a unique blend.
The Ohla Hotel is built on the site of a former Roman water canal and the palace of the first Count of Barcelona, Guifre el Pilos. The current building dates back 20 years and was initially the site of Barcelona’s first department store (Casa Vilardell). The building was renovated under the direction of Alonso, Balaguer y Arquitectos Asociados with artistic assistance by Frederic Amat. During the renovation, the historical building facade and other historical elements of the initial building have been preserved in their entirety, whilst the interior design of the building is avant-garde in its approach, combining different white and black textures with oak wood.
The end result is a 74-room boutique hotel with conference facilities, a wellness centre, sundeck and a variety of dining options in a luxurious setting with all of the details and personalised service one would expect from an establishment whose goal is nothing short of excellence.
