We stayed 2 nights here in September, it was fantastic. Centrally located, clean excellent breakfast, very well designed rooms, the greatest thing was the service especially from one of the girls on the front desk who went out of her way to help get tickets to la Familia.

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights last week. I have been to Barcelona several times before and wanted to be in a busy area when returning at night. The hotel was in a great position and we felt safe walking back to it at night. We had an executive room over looking the courtyard. The rooms were funky and fun and felt very calming with the white and black decor.We heard no other noise throughout our stay which was very relaxing when returning from the city. The staff at reception where very helpfull and friendly.I think it was a very good price for such a central position and good clean attractive rooms. We had breakfast in the hotel which was pleasant enough but maybe a little more variety would be good that is the only reason for not scoring excellent If you are just looking for a good quality hotel good price and good position this is perfect. If you want to spend time in a hotel bar and pool then not for you but if your in Barcelona you have to much to explore to spend your time in the hotel which I believe is the concept of the room mates. Thank you room mate pau my daughter and I had a fab time.

Room Mate Pau is a good value hotel perfectly situated to explore La Rambla and the Gothic area of Barcelona. Easy access to the Metro as well.
Staff are very friendly and always happy to help. Ask about tourist must-dos and the local Tapas restaurant "Taller Tapas" (it's a chain but you can get a free glass of bubbly via the hotel when eating there...also good, friendly service)
The hotel is clean and modern. A great room overlooking the street. Simple buffet style breakfast in a nice breakfast room with adjoining terrace.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our fourth floor street side room...

From the moment we arrived early Friday morning, we were made feel very welcome. Emma in reception was so helpful. We upgraded to an Executive room for only €10 per night, well worth it. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. It was modern, functional and very well laid out. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the shower excellent. The hotel's location is fantastic. Within a very short walking distance of all major streets and tour, local and airport buses. Emma gave us a map of Barcelona and suggested were to visit and pin pointed exactly where we were to all places of interest. The whole experience was better than expected and I will definitely stay in the hotel again. My only one gripe is that they have a kettle in the room to make coffee or tea.

Room Tip: Upgrade to an executive room for only €10 per night.

The hotel provided exactly what I needed: a great place in a great location; a great price. The lobby is quite small, but you are in Barcelona! There is a computer available for guests to use in the waiting area. And the entire staff was AMAZING!

The bed was comfortable; a phone, safe, and refrigerator were also in the room. My only negative is the window shade; it was not opaque, but translucent and it was on the main street. Noise from the street really wasn't much of an issue though.

The room actually made me think of Gaudi a little; the chair/table/divider had holes. Everything was white and so clean. Lighting was adequate.

The room had a room for the shower, a room for the toilet, and the sink with bathroom amenities (lots of amenities) behind the cabinet door.

You are one block from where the airport bus stops; you are two blocks from La Rambla. If I were planning another trip to Barcelona, this is where I would stay. Loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for one in the back of the hotel.

Lovely cosy little hotel in a brilliant location. Rooms are not big but well appointed and comfortable. Great shower, lovely soft lighting and very comfy bed. Breakfast was more than sufficient for me but if you're after a selection of cooked items you might be left wanting more. The lounge where breakfast is served is a little underused in my opinion and would be a great place for a few drinks if there was a bar there. But it is in a brilliant location so from the guests point of view there is no shortage of places to have a drink. All in all, would definitely come back and will recommend to everyone visiting Barcelona.

We stayed for 3 nights for a weekend break and found the hotel to be excellent value for money. The location is very central, literally round the corner from the Areobus stop direct from the airport so once off the plane you are in your hotel room in no time at all. The hotel itself is modern, I would say it's a more stylish and well equipped version of a Premier Inn. The Room Mate brand have definitely got it all right! We had an Executive room with a balcony overlooking the courtyard and we found this to be spacious and conformable and everything felt very stylish. All the members of staff were friendly and helpful and willing to give advice on directs to sights. We didn't eat in the hotel for breakfast as other reviewers said the food was poor but there are plenty of cafes in the vicinity to have a delicious breakfast.
I would say my only criticism would be that the toilet paper and towels felt quite cheap, seriously not the end of the world and I would most certainly stay again and recommend to others. I would also be interested in staying in other Room Mate hotels in other cities.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are more spacious and request a balcony
