“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

I spent with my wife a week in Room Mate Pau in March, 2014. The location of the hotel is the best possible: just next to the Placa de Catalunia but still peaceful. The personnel was excellently helpful in finding addresses etc. Our room was perfect and very clean. One of the funny things to enjoy was the breakfast that was served till 12 o'clock. Top experience, not the cheapest one but worth of every euro.

Room Tip: If you prefer quietness, please ask a room on the yard side.

I spent 1 night at Pau... was visiting some friends and decided to stay here mainly because of the location...

I arrived early at the hotel and the room I had originally paid for (cheapest available) was not ready, so they offer me to wait a couple of hours or upgrade to a bigger room for 10 eur... I did it and I think it was a great idea... do it if you can, I believe it is really worth it...

The room number, if I recall correctly, was 403... it was (or felt) brand new (or recently renovated) with a decent size (on the big side), nice toilet, separate huge rain shower, separate sink area and a nice and comfy bed... the room was mostly in white colour which gave a futuristic vibe... bed was super comfortable and bedding was nice and plush... there was a window with a balcony for smokers... no views though, but you are in BCN, go out and have the views...

Service was great, staff were really attentive and felt like they really cared for what they were doing...

Location is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, in particular for those visiting BCN for tourism... it is 1 minute away from Plaza Catalunya, and 5 minutes from Paseo de Gracia... most tourist attractions are walking distance and there are plenty of bars, restaurants and shops in the vicinity... I arrived by train, so connections were quite easy since the underground stations is 2 minutes away... the airport shuttle also stops right in the corner, I believe...

Breakfast area was pretty cool and breakfast spread was more than adequate... Internet worked perfectly at a good speed..

Overall, a really pleasant experience... I was not expecting to have such an "upscale" experience but Pau really delivered... good job for the team and the manager...

Room Tip: go for the second cheapest room I think it makes sense... bigger and better room and rate difference...

We stayed 2 nights here in September, it was fantastic. Centrally located, clean excellent breakfast, very well designed rooms, the greatest thing was the service especially from one of the girls on the front desk who went out of her way to help get tickets to la Familia.

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights last week. I have been to Barcelona several times before and wanted to be in a busy area when returning at night. The hotel was in a great position and we felt safe walking back to it at night. We had an executive room over looking the courtyard. The rooms were funky and fun and felt very calming with the white and black decor.We heard no other noise throughout our stay which was very relaxing when returning from the city. The staff at reception where very helpfull and friendly.I think it was a very good price for such a central position and good clean attractive rooms. We had breakfast in the hotel which was pleasant enough but maybe a little more variety would be good that is the only reason for not scoring excellent If you are just looking for a good quality hotel good price and good position this is perfect. If you want to spend time in a hotel bar and pool then not for you but if your in Barcelona you have to much to explore to spend your time in the hotel which I believe is the concept of the room mates. Thank you room mate pau my daughter and I had a fab time.

Room Mate Pau is a good value hotel perfectly situated to explore La Rambla and the Gothic area of Barcelona. Easy access to the Metro as well.
Staff are very friendly and always happy to help. Ask about tourist must-dos and the local Tapas restaurant "Taller Tapas" (it's a chain but you can get a free glass of bubbly via the hotel when eating there...also good, friendly service)
The hotel is clean and modern. A great room overlooking the street. Simple buffet style breakfast in a nice breakfast room with adjoining terrace.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We enjoyed our fourth floor street side room...

From the moment we arrived early Friday morning, we were made feel very welcome. Emma in reception was so helpful. We upgraded to an Executive room for only €10 per night, well worth it. The room was spacious and spotlessly clean. It was modern, functional and very well laid out. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the shower excellent. The hotel's location is fantastic. Within a very short walking distance of all major streets and tour, local and airport buses. Emma gave us a map of Barcelona and suggested were to visit and pin pointed exactly where we were to all places of interest. The whole experience was better than expected and I will definitely stay in the hotel again. My only one gripe is that they have a kettle in the room to make coffee or tea.

Room Tip: Upgrade to an executive room for only €10 per night.
