Ohla

Ohla

Ohla can be described as an obsession with fashion and style - aka "trendiness" - as embodied in the shape and form of a hotel. And to the nth degree, at that. The 74-room Ohla Hotel is the latest addition to Barcelona's boutique-luxury-hotel niche. Located in a historic, neoclassical building with a facade covered in stylized black and white eyeballs, your own eyes will, most likely, widen with wonder once you enter the building itself. The interior design is decidedly contemporary and completely uncharacteristic of the Barcelona hotel scene (as it's been up to now, that is): industrial minimalism, with black, white and brown being the dominant colors. The rooms are large, with a glassed-in shower cabin set right next to the bed (guests on the bashful side have the option of covering up "the view"), and a cleverly hidden door to the lavatory. There's also a roof-top terrace with a lounge/bar and swimming pool. If it weren't for the surrounding panorama of Barcelona, you could almost swear you were idling away in a private New York club. If you like a completely cosmopolitan atmosphere, then Ohla's location is ideal - it's not far from the Plaza de Catalunya.
