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 also a supermarket 5 minutes away if you want to have a few supplies in your room.
The air con in our room was essential and the TV came in useful now and then. We didn't eat in the restaurant (which was next door I think) so can't comment on that. There are plenty of places to eat around you anyhow.
I'd go back there if I returned to Roses.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Carmen is a tribute to Carmen & Josep, who first started welcoming travellers in their humble home in the early 1950's. The three buildings that make up the property have been recently refurbished and turned into a contemporary mediterranean hotel with a peaceful and delicate design that evoques those times. The house is located in the center of town among locals and their daily lives, and just 50m from the beach and Roses' magnificent sunset promenade. There are various rooms types available for guests, ranging from large rooms with balconies and terrasses, to smaller ones with windows. What all rooms have in common are great ergonomic mattresses & pillows, WiFi, a laptop sized safe, minibar, satelite TV, plus l'Occitane amenities and a haidryer in the bathroom. All rounded up with a nice breakfast with plenty of local products and freshly made coffee. For travellers arriving by car a garage is available as well. ... more less
