Nice and modern hotel. When we arrived, the reception staff tried to upgrade our room for an extra charge, we have choose not to pay the extra charge and we received a small room with no window to open and no view. Nevertheless, the reception staff were very friendly but not so aware for touristic recommendations. The metro is close.... More

Handy for getting around - near the Hop On Hop Off bus stops and Metro. A little Super Market is opposite which was handy for provisions. The only slight criticism is there are no coffee/tea making facilities but bar that everything else was perfect. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Excellent hotel with a very modern style. The neon-lights make the hotel almost a landmark in itself. The rooms are spacious and the bed are very comfortable. Ask the reception for a room on the frontside of the hotel, such that you have daylight. The breakfast is okay but nothing special. The wifi is of excellent quality and for free... More

Our third stay at Room Mate Emma. This stay was four nights. Very helpful, multilingual staff, very comfortable beds/rooms, and superb breakfast with very friendly staff (Marty!). Very modern, minimalist. Perfect location; we never walked more than 15 minutes for a great restaurant and less than five minutes to the Metro. All this and a great value.

Couldn't recommend this hotel more highly. Absolutely spotless room, simply but entirely adequately furnished. Very good breakfast buffet included, free wi-fi, gracious and multi-lingual staff. Good location, near metro; walking distance to major shopping area. Best of all, rates proved substantially lower than comparable hotels (I did book two rooms months in advance).

We had booked a penthouse with terrace; we were upgraded to the best room in the hotel., the penthouse deluxe (possibly because we had used the chain earlier in the year). The room was a good size especially for Barcelona and it had a large terrace with an outdoor bath. This was a thing of wonder. It did require a... More

My third time in Barcelona, and of course third time in Room Mate! Why I chose it? Well, where to start from. First of all I chose it for its location - it's in the middle of everything in the BEAUTIFUL Barcelona! The neighborhood is great! Around the area there are many places to eat and shop, the people around... More

What's not to like? Location is brilliant, rooms are clean, spacious, chic and over all value for money this it probably the best hotel in Barcelona. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, friendly staff, free wifi, modest minibar prices and close to all amenities, transport and attractions.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
