“Good value for money!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Very good location, new modern hotel. The building is not very impressive and there is no view. The great plus is the excellent service and the very friendly staff. Very good breakfast and convenient location.

This hotel has a good location, not that central but close enough to walk from the main sights. It has a nice feel to it and the staff are really friendly and efficient. Would definitely stay here again.

Friendly staff, great location (wallking distance to a lot of the main attractions) and nice bedrooms. A bit like a boutique hotel, quite trendy and funky decor. Would thoruoughly recommend.

Breakfast was of the standard continental style, but served until quite late and the breakfast bar is clean and tidy.

we chose R.M. Emma because it simply seemed to be the the less expensive choice, given location and services offered, in comparison to others on booking.com. it was actually easy to find, as it's close to psg. de gracia metro station (there's even a closer stop called Provenca,a few steps away from the hotel, and the line connects to pl. catalunya). pl. de catalunya is 10 minutes in walking distance down la rambla de catalunya (great walk on sunny mornings). lots of buses available around the block as well. the area is very cool (it's in beetween rambla catalunya, pasg. de gracia (high street fashion and las casas modernistas entre la manzana de la discordia) and carrer aribau, full of restaurants and tapas bars). staff is extremely nice, ready to advise on any matter: they make you feel more like a friend rather than a guest. they do not hurry you for rooms to be cleaned in the morning and check out is at a relaxed time. the room was very clean even though not immaculate (matched 3 stars standards, i'm not making a point for a hair in the shower). huge shower for fun time. lots of client treats (candies, free fashion and design press and cute messages from the director). heating system perfectly working (we got there in the year's coldest weekend in bcn..). deluxe rooms have windows, but it's not sea-view (you are in the middle of a XX-siecle area in the end..it might have its charm). don't have a clue on breakfast, since we decided to try the various forns de pa (bakeries) nearby, which also serve breakfast, to get in touch with the local atmosphere.

Yes the hotel is an good location and yes the breakfast is yummy, the wifi convenient and the rooms have a great design but what impressed us the most about this place was the service. The staff were just unbelievably nice and helpful. They took their time with everything when we were asking questions, had so much information about the sights and the city and were always cheerful. I don't think we've had a better experience with service at a hotel like this. Subway is a block or two away, La Rambla is a 10 minute walk and Av Diagonal also 5 to 10 min away. It's very close to wonderful restaurants and tapa joints, shopping and sights. Great value for money and even though we were in one of those rooms with no windows, it didn't bother us cause we were barely there. Def recommend.

I stayed at Room Mate Emma during my visit to Barcelona. The hotel is located in a more quiet area but still close to La Rambla and other attractions.
If you don´t like walking, which you would if you visit Barecelona ;), the hotel is located between two metrostations.

The hotel was very nice and modern with clean and spacious room and bathroom. Breakfast had everything you needed and the staff was very friendly and helpfull.
Free Wifi and a plus to the possibility to play music from your own device on the rooom.
Great small hangouts nearby the hotel and close to one of Barcelonas best tapasplace "Cervecería Catalana".

A very nice and affordable hotel!

Me and my partner have stayed at Room Mate Emma once before so we knew what to expect, our room was a good size,clean,modern and nice bathroom (blue flashing light was a bit annoying). The hotel put out a nice continental breakfast with a wide selection which we thought was good value for money.

I would like to thank the staff for being so helpful during our stay and making us feel welcome
