Room Mate Pau

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Our stay in this hotel, as a young married couple was excellent. First of all the location is perfect, near Placa Catalunya. The receptionists were so kind and friendly. The room was clean and furnished in an interesting modern style. At the 5th floor the wi-fi signal was very good. We definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: The rooms with street view are noisier but with a better view, while the rooms on the courtyard side...

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in June and loved the location. We felt we were so central to everything. Just steps away from the Barri Gothic, La Rambla, and several metro stations. We could also take a longer walk or just metro a few stops to get to the beach, Gracia, and several Gaudi locations (Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, Sagrada Familia). I also loved that the hotel is 1/2 a block from the Aerobus stop (don't take a cab to the hotel from the airport, just take the Aerobus for 5.90 euros/person. It's super easy. Get on the bus at BCN airport, then take the bus all the way to the last stop at Placa Catalunya. The hotel is right around the corner. Note that the bus only stops 3 times - it's a bus designed for travellers)

About the room itself...

We booked the executive room, but we got upgraded to the executive room with a terrace. The terrace overlooked the hotels courtyard, so not much of a view. The terrace was also only big enough to stand on. (I'm not complaining, just letting you know what size of terrace to expect) The room was big enough for a king-sized bed, two nightstands, and small table and chair, and a closet for clothing.

The bathroom had a full bathtub with shower. However the bathroom itself is not very private. The door has about a 1" gap between the frame and the door itself and did not lock. I've been with my husband for 18 years, so this wasn't a huge deal, but again, something to be aware of.

I found the room to be extremely clean. The sheets and towels were changed daily and everything was crisp and white.

The décor of the room is "modern". It was different and I kind of liked it. Lots of good lighting too.

The hotel felt very safe, as the front desk was right by the hotel entrance. The front door locked around dinner time, and the front desk staff always buzzed you in. You also need your key card to get to your floor. Given how centrally located the hotel is, I appreciated the extra security. (The neighbourhood felt safe, just very busy) The hotel room also had a safe.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again, and would recommend it to others.

We recently stayed at this hotel and cannot fault it.
We had a twin room, and although on the small side, it was very clean and cleaned to the same standard each day. There were no tea/coffee making facilities in the room, so if you like your brews, take a travel kettle as we did! Wifi was brilliant, and you could connect throughout the hotel.
We had the breakfast each day, and at €8.95, we thought it was very good value.
Location of this hotel is spot on, close to everything!
If i was going to travel back to Barcelona, i would definitely stay here again!

We really enjoyed our stay at Room Mate Pau! The receptionists were friendly and had a secure luggage room for us to use. The rooms exceeded our expectations :) Big spaceous shower and modern room decor. We enjoyed our stay so much we booked here again when we came back to Barcelona the 2nd time. Highly recommended.

This hotel has such a small frontage our cab driver drove right past it. But once you enter through the elevators it opens up right to the back. The rooms were pretty small, but managed to squeeze in a baby cot. Cool design, although starting to age a little as the bathroom area has wooden panelling on the floors and walls. Great location as everyone else has mentioned, and very friendly staff. Pretty average hotel, and saw a few silverfish running around - probably due to the damp wooden floors.
