The “hotel with a thousand eyes”, as it is known by neighbours, does its name proud. The one-thousand ceramic eyes on the main façade, created by Frederic Amat and executed by master ceramicist Antoni Cumella, create a dialogue of gazes between passers-by and the hotel itself.
This dialogue permeates all of the hotel spaces, where locals and guests intermingle. The areas set aside exclusively for hotel guests offer the privacy you need for a comfortable, intimate, tranquil stay in Barcelona’s liveliest neighbourhood.
Even the contemporary artwork at the hotel participates in this open dialogue with the historical surroundings and neo-classic façade of the building.
A hotel in constant dialogue with the city.
The lift on the left side will take you up to the eighth floor, where you’ll find one of the city’s hidden treasures: our rooftop terrace. This spot is much loved by locals and visitors alike, looking out at the Barcelona Cathedral and with an excellent 180º panoramic view of the lower part of the city.
The space centres on a 13-metre-long pool, with glass walls, where you can find respite from the warm summer days.
The rooftop of Ohla Barcelona is listed among the best rooftop bars in Barcelona for The Rooftop Guide,
the world’s leading website and social media about rooftop bars.
Check with reception for hours when outside guests are allowed and when it is only open to hotel guests.
Our terrace is one of those special places where locals and visitors alike seek a bit of peace and quiet. Its fantastic location and privileged views of the Cathedral make it an oasis right in the heart of the bustling city centre. A place to have an aperitif, cocktail after work or, if you’d like something to eat, a selection of the best tapas from La Passohla.
Weather permitting, you’re likely to find some sort of event going on. Projections, DJs in the evening or presentations from international fashion brands are the most common. And we’re proud to belong to the Circuit of luxury hotel rooftop bars in the city. We’re sure you’ll always be in good company.
“A hotel should have soul. It should make staying there an experience in wellness, warmth and, even, culture. And a warm welcome means being at our guest's service. But it’s not a matter of strict adherence to protocol; it’s an attitude.”
Personally involved in the development and concept of the Ohla Boutique Hotels project from the very beginning, he has been especially excited about Frederic Amat’s intervention on the façade and the artwork of Samuel Salcedo and Joan Priego, as well as the gastronomical delights on offer at the establishments, which have garnered prestige and become part of the city’s top-notch culinary scene.
