Das Hotel allgemein
Ohla Barcelona is much more than a modern luxury boutique hotel. Its location downtown Barcelona, its exclusive access, the elegance of its 74 rooms, the spectacular terrace that offers possibly the best lookout to Barcelona, the mezzanine where the avant-garde gastronomy has its space, are enough reasons to visit this renovated building.
Located on a site full of history: the antique traces of a water supply channel from Roman times and the former palace of the first Count of Barcelona, Guifré el Pilós. It also witnessed the urban tear that followed the creation of Via Laietana, the headquarters of the first department stores (Can Vilardell) ever to exist in the city. Many generations remember it as the place where they delivered the letters to the Three Wise Men in Christmas when they were children.
The artistic dialogue of its facades and its different periods are very interesting. On one side, the Neoclassical front façade classified as historical heritage. On the other side, the Prussian-blue new facade, with geometrical designs and balanced with vertical windows.
The expressive power given by the artist Frederic Amat contributes with his sculptures to decorate as an attempt of a “constructive acupuncture” work. There are more than a thousand porcelain-headed needles in the façade polished in the shape of an eye hand-painted by the artist.
