I am working on a floor plan in OO Drawing and I would like to find the area of each room. Is there some way to do that?

Not that I am aware of (I had the same issue)
I ended up creating a new layer, layering the whole floor plan with rectangles (or right angle triangles for simple calculation) and calculate it manually entering all sizes in Calc ...
