“Fabulous hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

I recently spent three nights in this delightful hotel. The room was spacious, clean and well appointed. The bed was large and extremely comfortable and the linen crisp and clean. It is very well located just off Placa de Catalunya and only a short walk from the Aerobus stop. The staff were friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Spent 4 nites here, first time in Barcelona. Front desk staff always helpful and friendly! They will sore the luggage for you if you arrive early. We really loved the modern hotel quirks, including the singing elevator, sleekly designed rooms. The breakfast buffet was a great start to the day. The front desk can make print outs of any of any advance tourist tickets, and it was very convenient - forward an email of what needs to be printed, and they have the print ready waiting for pickup. Its a very short walk from the bus and metro.

Room Tip: We had the room overlooking the breakfast terrace. It was nice and quiet!

We just stayed there with a large group of people and we could not have been happier with the hotel. It is in a perfect central location. The rooms are very unique and comfortable. The breakfast room and terrace is outstanding. The staff was very friendly and could not have been more helpful. We took the bus from the airport which stops less than a block away. Our friends had booked a suite with a terrace which was just beautiful. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

However the rooms and bathrooms do not leave a design feel when inside, but the photos actually look nicer. The location is very good at Placa Catalunya, the staff is very friendly, the rooms are tiny. There is some basic breakfast buffet. Depending on the time of travel, there might be better deals at a similar location. Specifically for business purposes the rooms are not comfortable to work from.

Located just round the corner from Plaça de Catalunya, the hotel is ideally situated for exploring Central Barcelona and transport links to the airport. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, spacious and quiet, overlooking an inner courtyard rather than the street. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was small but functional, well designed and with good range of toiletries. Decidedly a notch up compared to Room Mate establishments in Madrid.

This was definitely the highlight of our honeymoon and our best accommodation in Europe. Beautifully designed rooms which were very modern but warm. We were offered a room upgrade for €10 per night (5 night stay) but we declined and when we got up to our room we were glad we did as our room had everything we wanted plus more. Lots of storage for clothes and bathroom amenities. The shower was AMAZING!! The bed was also huge and comfortable and the aircon/heating was very easy to use. Our balcony had no furniture but this didn't bother us as we didn't use it but it had a lovely view of the outdoor breakfast area. The location is perfect- close to metro, taxi ranks and buses. Walking distance to all the main sites- sagrada familia, casa Batlló, the beach, las rambles, the old gothic quarter, the food markets and lots more! Staff were super friendly and check in and out was efficient. We could not recommend this hotel enough!!

Really modern with a quirky, light and airy feel Room Mate Pau is in a great location to make your stay in Barcelona as convenient as possible, we stayed for 4 nights, we'd booked a standard room but decided to upgrade to an Executive room for an extra 10 Euro per night so we could have a balcony, it was well worth it.

The beds really comfy, the bath was nice and deep, just what you need to relax after a hard day sight seeing. The cleaners did a great job everyday. The room had almost everything we needed (though and iron and ironing board would have been useful, we had brought a travel iron after finding out you'd have to send things to laundry to get it pressed), safe, fridge, the Wi-Fi worked brilliantly and the aircon/heating was easy to control.

The staff are really friendly and knowledgeable and were always happy to help with any advice we needed. I would happily stay here again.
