For an all-out shopping splurge in the Catalan capital, the location of Barcelona’s very first ‘design hotel’ is totally on-point; just off the Passeig de Gràcia and within easy reach of Avinguda Diagonal – the much-lauded five-kilometre shopping stretch that is home to flagship stores from most of the planet’s high-end designers.
But it’s not all about the shopping at this five-star city slicker. Beneath its unusual limestone façade is a feast of avant-garde design, most apparent in the 91 guest rooms. Matched with chic-as-you-like bathrooms, each is styled as a super-sleek living space with oak parquet flooring, bold splashes of colour, modish fixtures and fittings, and all the luxuries and gadgetry you could desire.
Days can be spent lounging and people-watching by the rooftop terrace pool that overlooks Gaudi’s Casa Milà, sampling adventurous Catalan fare at the award-winning Michelin-starred restaurant, and kicking back with potent cocktails in the cool-looking lobby bar. Equally alluring is the Oriental-styled spa with its indoor pool and excellent pampering menu. The on-site nightclub will have you getting your groove on right into the early hours.
Each of the 91 rooms, which includes eight suites, are styled as super-sleek living spaces with oak parquet flooring, designer-led furnishings, bold splashes of colour, hand-woven rugs, and modish fixtures and fittings. Bathrooms are equally chic and kitted out with a bathtub and shower, complimentary toiletries, bathrobes and slippers. The Standard room and the larger Superior room both have comfortable king-size beds or two twin beds. The more spacious Junior suite has a canopy bed and a separate lounge area. All accommodation overlooks either the inner courtyard or Passeig de Gràcia.
Managed by Barcelona’s esteemed El Celler de Can Roca, signature restaurant Roca Moo is a Michelin-star hangout that takes a modern twist on Catalan cooking. Choose from the à la carte menu, or opt for the more adventurous tasting menus with matching wines. Less formal is the lobby-based Roca Bar – an all-day spot with comfortable sofas and a fireplace where you can enjoy speciality teas, potent cocktails, snacks, and casual fare. There is also an on-site nightclub with a resident DJ on Fridays from 10pm to 4am, and a mix-up of singers, saxophones, percussion and DJ beats that kicks off after midnight on Saturdays.
For Zen-like calm, Spaciomm is an Oriental-styled pampering haven with an indoor pool, hamman, water circuit, pilates and gravitation spaces, treatment cabins and concept hairdressing salon. Each of the signature Rituals of the World treatments are wonderfully named; choose from Diamond Magnetic by Natura Bissé, Desert Moon Ritual, Thousand and One Nights and more. The spa opens from 10am to 9.30pm from Monday to Saturday, and from 10am to 6pm on Sunday. Personal training is available on request.
Just off the Passeig de Gràcia and a five-minute stroll from Gaudí’s Casa Milà, you’ll be close to Avinguda Diagonal – Barcelona’s famous five-kilometre shopping stretch that is home to most of the world’s high-end designer boutiques. You’ll also be within a 15-minute walk from Plaza de Catalunya and Las Ramblas, and just 100 years from Diagonal Metro Station. City must-dos include riding the hop-on-hop-off Bus Turistic for unrivalled sightseeing, chilling out on a mosaic bench at Parc Güell, browsing the quirky shops in the Gothic Quarter, and fuelling your passion for FC Barcelona at the spectacular Camp Nou.
How to Get There
It’s a second time we’ve stayed at Omm after 7 or 8 years. And the thing which surprised us – the hotel is still as nice as it was years ago and remains contemporary and well-designed one even after our multiple visits to different other places. It was a pleasant feeling that all small things (like selection of pillows, comfortable beds or toiletries, complimentary water or chocolates every night) remained unchanged in a good sense of this word – they were simply very good and pleasant. Rooms were spacious and bright (we had one overlooking the street). During your sleep there are dark night shades which let you sleep as long as you want (and we took advantage of this).
The breakfast is served till 11.30, which is amazing for people like us, who like to sleep a little longer. And the breakfast is really nice. At first glance it looks like it is very simple, but then you find out that there’s plenty of everything and once you had a bite of everything you feel stuffed.
The staff is just amazing. Should it be an advice or booking request, they try to do it the best way possible.
So, thanks for everybody in the hotel, who made our stay wonderful.
I had a fantastic stay at Hotel Omm. For starters, the location was perfect for the touristy/shopping oriented stay that I had in mind. The staff was friendly, and the Concierge was very helpful with recommendations. I enjoyed sunbathing on the rooftop very much, and loved the pool's layout, with a fantastic view on the city.The breakfast selection and quality was outstanding, and I recommend it highly. My room was always spotless and very comfortable in terms of size and layout. This hotel is perfect if you want something boutique and luxurious, but not pompous, and I can not wait to be back!
Our stay was very good. All the family enjoyed the hotel. Thank you very much. We will come again soon and recommend your hotel to our friends who want to visit Barcelona.
Best regards, Lubov Abbasova
We went through a travel agent that booked us at Hotel Omm. It was probably the fanciest place we had ever stayed in. The room was amazing, service was amazing, and I only wish we had more time to enjoy the other amenities like the spa! The included breakfast buffet was great and vegetarian friendly.
Very attentive and friendly staff, good modern facilities. The highlight was the quality of the bar menu, simply excellent food. Location is convenient for tourism. The roof top bar has wonderful views of the city scape and is a pleasant place for a pre dinner drink. BJC.
