Been in Omm now three times over two years. This time for six nights, because an Iberia strike forced us, or rather provided us with a perfect excuse to stay long. The hotel is perfectly located at the upper end of the Passeig de Gracia. The design is stunningly contemporary, yet very warm and comfortable. The large square room that serves as reception, lobby, bar, breakfast room and two restaurants is a masterpiece of 21st century design. Square bar in the middle, minimalistic fireplace, flexible separations, comfortable furniture, cool jazz music (most of the time), flower arrangements, books, roof lights, lighting, abundant space: it all makes you relaxed. A hangout for guests, as well as the local chic. Extremely friendly and attentive staff round the clock, under the eye of the frequently present owner, a stern looking lady who may hold business meetings at a table next to you. Food and drinks are delicious and abundant. (Gin & Tonics are mixed on a "say when" basis, which is quite unique in a five star hotel.) Breakfast is a treat every day with Iberico ham and other assorted mini baguettes or sandwiches, local sausages and cheeses, top quality patisserie, fruits and an espresso bar, eggs to order, all you can savour for €25. Dinner or lunch can be enjoyed in the Roca Moovida restaurant, for relaxed tapas and other modern dishes. You can also go gourmet at the Moo, which is the first spinoff of El Celler de Can Roca, the 2nd best restaurant in the San Pellerino top 50. Moo serves incredible creations with great wine pairings in a more formal, yet still comfortable setting.
The rooms are spacious, comfortable, with large windows, perfectly blinded at night, quiet, with wooden floors, smart lighting and a smart design with a separation between bathroom and sleeping room, serving as cupboard on both sides. Many rooms have a large (at the backside) or small (on the streetside) balcony. The hallways are interestingly lit, i.e. rather dark.
The hotel in addition has a beautiful roof terrace with swimming pool and views of the famous La Pedrera roof architecture by Gaudi, a rather nice spa if you are in to that and is rumoured to have a night club somewhere in the cellar, which we never saw of heard.
In summary, the Omm is the perfect city hotel, where everything is relaxed and esthetic. I could live here.
