Well located hotel just one street back from the promenade. All the staff were friendly and helpful, they very kindly garaged our bikes for us. Excellent breakfast and complimentary tea & coffee available through out the day. We ate Sunday lunch and dinner at the sister property Hostal Rom, good choice of dishes and very good value.

I would rate this hotel very highly for its reasonable rates, very helpful and friendly staff, brilliant location and great breakfast. It is also clean and tastefully decorated. Don't be put off by the location being one street back from the seafront. We had a great view with a little bit of sea and the street is quite peaceful. There's... More

This is a well-located hotel, in the heart of the town but on a quiet road, beautifully furnished and with kind and helpful staff. We have been several times and will come again. But it is not the cheapest place in town and there is no easy parking (10 euros extra), no swimming pool, no bar.

We didn't intend staying in Roses being captivated by Cadaques across the bay and closer to the Dali house at Portlligat but could not find any vacancy there so we opted for Roses and the hotel Carmen. This turned out to be a great choice. Very affordable, close to the beach promenade with really friendly staff and first class breakfast... More

We found this hotel through TA, and really enjoyed our stay. The two brothers are really welcoming and helped us get to know the area. We got a lot of help in planning our little trip around the neighboring towns. Had great time as a result. Another highlight was the breakfast. It came with all the best ingredients and carefully...

The hotel is better than we expect. The Superior Double Room is spacious and comfortable. The finishes of the room have good quality. Hotel staff is very friendly and helped us in everything that we need. The breakfast is very complete and very good. There is a close free parking, 150 meters from the hotel.

We spent a fantastic weekend in hotel Carmen. Its location is excellent because you are very near the beach and it's very central. The hotel facilities are very good for the price you pay and everything is really comfortable and clean. I'm sure we'll come back again!
