“Excellent location, excellent staff, just right!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

My husband and I stayed for a three night break commencing 7th April 2014. We booked back in September for a central location and for the junior suite. We arrived about 11 to be told that unfortunately our room was not ready (we were not expecting it to be) they were very apologetic about this and offered to keep our cases for us for the time until our room was ready. We went off to explore the city, came back and went up to the room. Having been in a few city breaks we were very pleased with the size and of the quality of the room. The best mid price hotel we have stayed in. Breakfast is what you expect in a European country. A mix of 'hot' toast, bacon, scrambled eggs, mini hot dogs. To yogurts, fruit, cheeses, hams, pastries. All well presented and constantly filled. Served from 7:30-12! Beautiful coffees and for people like myself a good selection of all teas including fruit. We had one small problem with a sound of water leaking from somewhere but this issue was delt with very efficantly and has not altered my views of Roommate Pau at all!

We loved the central location of this hotel, we in the junior suite heard no noise. If your planning on staying here, do not bother with transfers just get the airport bus as it ends directly on the road the hotel is.

I would without a doubt stay at this hotel again, thank you to all the staff that made our trip and excellent one.

Stayed at the Room Mate Pau for a long weekend during springtime. The hotel has a nice conteporary feel with a friendly and helpful staff. The standard room was of a decent size, not big but well planned.

My wife and I spent two nights here celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. The hotel itself was ideal for what we wanted - helpful staff, comfortable room - but what really made it was the location. The shuttle bus from the (very efficient) airport runs 2 or 3 times an hour, takes only 30 minutes and stops at Placa de Catalunya, less than a minutes walk from the hotel. This then places you at the centre of the action, with the Ramblas on your doorstep. There are no additional facilities though - so if you're looking for a hotel with a gym, pool, bar, etc, look elsewhere; but for a short city break it is perfect.

As soon as you walk through the doors of this hotel you felt at home. The staff in reception were first class, helpful as to where to eat, as well as to sightseeing around the city. I had booked the city break to celebrate my wife`s 50th birthday and we were happily surprised when we saw a bottle of champagne in our room as complements of the hotel. What a wonderful touch. We have stayed in Barcelona before on a few occasions and I can honestly say that this hotel is the best yet. The rooms were spacious and clean. We loved the shower. The breakfast was more than adequate as there was a good choice of food. Location was brilliant, as from when you got off the plane you caught the city bus which stopped in the city centre at Placa de Catalunya then the hotel is only some 50 metres away. I couldn`t ask for more. I have and i will be recommending this hotel to my family and friends as well as my work colleagues.

Room Tip: the reception staff will give you good and honest advice

I spent with my wife a week in Room Mate Pau in March, 2014. The location of the hotel is the best possible: just next to the Placa de Catalunia but still peaceful. The personnel was excellently helpful in finding addresses etc. Our room was perfect and very clean. One of the funny things to enjoy was the breakfast that was served till 12 o'clock. Top experience, not the cheapest one but worth of every euro.

Room Tip: If you prefer quietness, please ask a room on the yard side.

I spent 1 night at Pau... was visiting some friends and decided to stay here mainly because of the location...

I arrived early at the hotel and the room I had originally paid for (cheapest available) was not ready, so they offer me to wait a couple of hours or upgrade to a bigger room for 10 eur... I did it and I think it was a great idea... do it if you can, I believe it is really worth it...

The room number, if I recall correctly, was 403... it was (or felt) brand new (or recently renovated) with a decent size (on the big side), nice toilet, separate huge rain shower, separate sink area and a nice and comfy bed... the room was mostly in white colour which gave a futuristic vibe... bed was super comfortable and bedding was nice and plush... there was a window with a balcony for smokers... no views though, but you are in BCN, go out and have the views...

Service was great, staff were really attentive and felt like they really cared for what they were doing...

Location is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, in particular for those visiting BCN for tourism... it is 1 minute away from Plaza Catalunya, and 5 minutes from Paseo de Gracia... most tourist attractions are walking distance and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in the vicinity... I arrived by train, so connections were quite easy since the underground stations is 2 minutes away... the airport shuttle also stops right in the corner, I believe...

Breakfast area was pretty cool and breakfast spread was more than adequate... Internet worked perfectly at a good speed..

Overall, a really pleasant experience... I was not expecting to have such an "upscale" experience but Pau really delivered... good job for the team and the manager...

Room Tip: go for the second cheapest room I think it makes sense... bigger and better room and rate difference...
