Despite the overwhelming number of accommodation options in Barcelona, Spanish group OD Hotels has still chosen to plant its roots in the Catalan capital, marking its fifth opening – and its first on the mainland – and completing the company’s Mallorcan and Ibizan portfolio. 

Located in the city’s Eixample district, where Gaudí’s masterpieces Casa Milà and Casa Batlló are some of the main draws, the 98-room hotel is a light and spacious sanctuary filled with Mediterranean-inflected bespoke furnishings and textiles courtesy of designers Victor Rahola and Mayte Matutes. 

In the summer months, get social at the signature Sky Bar, swimming pool and sun deck, or opt for plush privacy in the Grand Suite, which comes complete with its own terrace, private swimming pool and enviable views.
