Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Omm Barcelona
Bad service, food ridiculous
at the "famous" restaurant the tasting menue dishes were extremely small, really a laugh - thats nouvelle cusine at its worse! moreover the fish was halfraw and really noting special --- 60 € per person! better to eat outside! at the bar round the lobby next day they let us wait for 40 minutes - they just forgot our order (toast, sandwich)! but they gave us the drinks for free ... the pool on the rooftop is not a pool its a laugh - and they do not serve drinks to the rooftop in may! it`s just too expensive for what they offer!
My Partner and I got a great deal at Hotel Omm and very much enjoyed our 2 day stay in Barcelona.
The rooms are very funky and ours had a fabulous views of the chimneys at 'Casa de Milo' and the Paseigo de Gracia. The bathroom toiletries are gorgeous and the beds, extremely comfortable.
We didn't eat in the restaurant but enjoyed cocktails in the bar which was brilliantly designed and great for people watching.
Overall we found the staff very helpful and curteous although the hotel could possibly do with increasing staff levels in the bar at busy times.
One thing i would suggest is to skip the breakfast. There are loads of fantastic cafe's nearby offering much more for half the price.
I'll definitely stay there again and am looking forward to returning to enjoy the spa which opens early next year.
Head waitress should be sacked
Would not stay at this hotel on the basis of having had one meal at the restaurant!!!
The food was good, although the waitress did tell us that the portions were very large - they were actually, VERY small!!!
The head waitress took our order and then brought us the wrong dish. Instead of apologising, she accused me of changing my mind. Then when the bill came she charged us for food we didn't even have.
Awful service - one VERY rude member of staff!!!
I did not stay here, but did eat at their restaurant. The service was very poor. Our waitress was rude, unattentive and unapologetic when the kitchen delivered the wrong meal - and then charged us for her mistake. I found the whole experience totally unsatisfactory, which is a shame because the space is great and the food was good.
Hotel Omm...sophisticated, central, great stay for an adult trip
I had 2 nights in Barcelona, and didn't quite know where to stay. After searching the internet, I found the Hotel Omm, and was very pleased when we arrived. It was just what I was hoping for. Great rooms, central location, and an modern feel. It was a true find for us, and would highly recommend it. It is well worth the price.
Do not take children
spent a weekend in august for my friends 40th birthday. rooms very minimal, separate toilet in the room but no sink in it, quite noisy and can here occupants on upper floors. we had two children with us, one member of staff was very unfriendly to the 3yr old in the lobby, my friend was also asked to remove her buggy, was it spoiling the look? had to get own drink menu from bar then go back and order, service was none existant. we were made to feel very unwelcome when my husband complained about it he was told they have a very strict manager! so strict they will end up with no patrons.the girls on reception were great and very helpfull. if hotels do not welcome children they should state so, i wouldnt stay here again, its as though they are doing you a favour.
Great Central Barcelona modern chic
Stayed here late April when they were offering deals. Rooms are lovely - good beds, TVs, interesting design, nice smellies, very functional bathing area, quiet while right in the middle of Barca - only down side was the sliding door to the loo nearly jammed me in. However the newness commented on in other crits has gone. On the work front, could not get Internet access to work (even after dismantling the phone) - so not greatif you are there for work. Front of house varies from friendly to rather pretentious (one of those places where everyone is under 25 and wears black), but food is of great quality, if sometimes modest portions. Wonderful coffee. And great artwork. Restaurant in the evenings has brilliant food - impressed client greatly by taking them there.
Barcelona, Hotel Omm smelled like rubber cement
We were checked in at the Hotel Omm in Barcelona, but when we got to our room it smelled so new that we needed to ckeck out immediately. They just opened 3 months ago and there was still construction on the 2nd floor. There were no windows that you can open and the smell of paint and varnish was overpowering. They were very nice about letting us check out without charging us and were very apologetic.We checked into the Hotel Inglaterra and had a great room with a terrace. The price they gave us when we showed up in person to the Inglaterra was 70 Euro less than they quoted on the phone. The location is very central too.
Staff ignored me the whole time!
I did not stay at the hotel but I was horribly treated in their restaurant. 20 mins seated before I got a menu and I was the first guest for lunch. The food was excellent but tthe service was terrible, the maitre had an attitude and the staff was very cold and did not pay me any attention. Although the food was great the staff was awful, I would never recommend this hotel.
I didn't actually stay at the hotel but I had the most fabulous dinner at their restaurant Moo. A feast for all senses. We came a bit early (20:30) and were told that if we wanted to, we could have a drink in their lobby bar. The bar is beautiful with lots of sofas and a fireplace and views to the restaurant. When people finally began to arrive in the restaurant (21:30) we got a great table and had their tasting menu with matching wines. The food was outstanding and so is the decor, I've never seen anything like it. Great service, too. I would definitely go back and next time I'll stay at the hotel.

... to go to our room. So, we checked in, left our luggage and do what we do best. Walk! We learned, from our Concierge, of a newly opened Gaudi Landmark. The Palau Guel, a home Gaudi designed and built for the industrialist and his “benefactor/friend”. We decided to walk and when the “museum” opened, we’d go.

First stop, Casa Pedraro (also called Casa Mila for the family who commissioned it), an apartment building Gaudi designed in 1906 which has wonderful chimneys and ventilation ducts on the roof mosaiced in white tile shards.

Back to Barcelona. Final destination of the day was another of Gaudi's masterpieces, Guell Parc. Guell was a well-to-do fellow who bought a hill on the outskirts of town to turn into a 'gated community/housing estate' for 60 homes for the wealthy. Gaudi was employed to ...
... in one way or another has been under construction since 1882 and is not due for final completion until 2040... It is the most unusual building I have ever seen, and is a total mish mash. Different parts of it have been built at different times, by different builders, following different architectural styles and none of it seems to compliment each other. We only walked around the outside of each of the buildings & took photos as time was at ...

Early the next morning we packed, showered, check out at made our way to the train station for Madrid. Barcelona was a really nice place and I really enjoyed it a lot more than I thought I would especially seeing another cathedral! I don't think we even scraped the surface of things to do in Barcelona or the surrounding villages! Its definitely a place to come back ...
