OD Barcelona is a brand new 5 star boutique hotel, opening on 15 th August 2017 in the cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. Located in the heart of the Eixample district, just 200 metres from Paseo de Gracia, OD Barcelona is the perfect place from which to explore the city’s vibrant food scene, culture, and shopping.
Part of the OD Hotels group, which has hotels in Ibiza and Mallorca, OD Barcelona is the group’s first hotel on the Spanish mainland and like the Balearic hotels it will combine a great location with contemporary luxury design and truly personalised service. Throughout the 98 rooms and suites, the lobby lounge, restaurant with terrace and garden, and the OD Sky Bar, the design will be centred around one of OD Hotels most important concepts; light and space, to create a relaxed oasis within the busy city.
Once again, the group is using the architectural studio of Victor Rahola and interior designer Mayte Matutes to create elegant architecture with fluid spaces and refined interiors including a selection of furnishings and textiles made exclusively for the hotel. The rooms are spacious and well equipped offering the best in comfort and style with Mediterranean influences to give a sense of place. This new hotel also offers various suites and an extremely generously–sized Grand Suite, which has its own private terrace with swimming pool and great city views.
When not exploring the city, guests will love unwinding in the lobby bar, restaurant and terrace which will service breakfast, lunch and dinner with health-conscious, delicious cuisine. The favourite spot at the new hotel will no doubt be the terrace on the rooftop, where guests will find the roof top sun-deck and swimming pool. It’s a place to enjoy great views, drinks, company and music from local and guest DJs. The roof terrace can also be hired for private events. The hotel’s own events, such as the after work ‘Burger Meets Gin’ or the ‘Mexican Brunch’ mean guests have some unique options to make the most of their stay at OD Barcelona.
A knowledgable concierge team will ensure the best experience in the city connecting guests with the top places to eat, drink, shop and discover. The work of Gaudí in the emblematic Paseo de Gracia, the Sagrada Familia and the famous Plaza de Catalunya are only a few minutes from the hotel on foot or guests can choose to use one of the OD Barcelona smart cars, which are available across the group to give guests the flexibility to explore their locations.
There’s also a large focus on sustainability with eco-friendly training and systems, like the green, vegetated façade, efficient building insulation, solar panels and a state-of-the-art heating and air- conditioning system that reduces energy consumption by 35%. OD Barcelona was nominated as one of the Top 10 sustainable hotel development projects in Spain at Re Think Hotel 2017.
This exciting addition to the OD Hotels collection is part of a bigger plan to expand and in 2019, the group will open its first hotel in the United States with OD Miami which will see one of the city’s most emblematic buildings – the Dade-Commonwealth building – renovated and transformed into a 169 bedroom luxury design hotel.
