Modern, clean, comfortable hotel right in the centre of Barcelona. We will always going to come back to this hotel. The room layout was refreshingly new and different. Comfortable bed and quiet ambience. Enjoyed the stay enormously. The bathroom layout was very clever indeed. The staff are always cheerful and helpful. Would recommend this hotel to friends in a heartbeat.

Booked this hotel after reading the good reviews and it lived up expectations. Perfect central location, clean chic rooms with safe, mini fridge and plenty of power points. Stayed for a few nights and couldn't fault anything. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful especially Gener. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We spent two nights at the end of a two week cruise in the wonderful hotel. It is a true gem. Perfectly located within easy walking distance of the Ramblas, Gothic Quarter and modern Barcelona. Rooms were very modern, sleek and comfortable. The whole hotel gives a very modern vibe. Certainly, the best aspect of the hotel is its staff. They were extremely helpful in all aspects, from helping us print our boarding passes to assistance and advice with purchasing advance tickets for the popular sites. I would certainly highly recommend this place and will come back.

A good night's sleep is what I require in a hotel and you certainly get that in this hotel. Although it is located literally yards away from Placa Catelunya, we could have been the only people in the hotel - I did not hear any noise from either outside or from other guests. This is in part due to the room's location, - we had an executive room on the forth floor around one of the internal courtyard wells, where we backed onto only one other room; and due to the room's design, for example double ceilings. The room was quite small but had everything you needed, was exceptionally clean with a powerful shower. It is very modern - white walls and furniture, dashes of colours here and there and hidden lighting. funky but effective.

the young staff were fabulous - very friendly and helpful. They recommended a reasonably priced restaurant for which they had free drinks vouchers, made telephone bookings for us and phoned up a restaurant where my daughter had left her sunglasses behind.

Breakfast was adequate, but can be found cheaper in local cafes. One morning we went to the café in the adjoining department store which is located on the top floor and has fantastic views. We had a lovely meal at Cachitos in Rambla de Catalunya - the inside is very Spanish and tasteful. Also for a treat in Casa Calvert a ten mins walk away and one of Gaudi's first houses he designed - ask to see the lift and vestibule.

Two other trips for visitors: go after 6pm to Sagrada Familia to avoid the queues and pre-book for Parc Guell.

Room Tip: Room 410 was exceptionally quiet

You can't want for anything more from this hotel - central location, extremely helpful and friendly staff (we forgot to print some tickets and needed them urgently and they were more than accommodating), a clean/modern room and oh the bed was comfy! Price was also reasonable for the city centre and good value for money given the size of the room.

This hotel is really everything you need for a pre-cruise stay: clean, comfortable room with an awesome shower, convenient location when taking the A2 airport bus, and helpful staff. The modern design may not be to everyone's taste but it seems to work. The room is Euro-sized but very functional. It includes a safe, mini fridge, and flawless wifi. We booked the room with breakfast included and felt we received good value for the price. Breakfast was more than adequate. All in all a very pleasant stay.

It was hard to find a good hotel in Barcelona with a good location. But with Room Mate Pau, we founded the perfect place (100 meters away from Place de Cataluyna). Nice and clean rooms. The staff was super friendly.

They suggested us an upgrade to an executive room (10 €/night extra).
