Stayed here for 1 night in early Jan 2014. Room cost €75 incl breakfast for 2 ppl, parking (locked, underground) cost €10 extra. Did see sign for free car park but not close by hotel. Narrow back streets on approach to hotel, beware if travelling in big car. Staff v. friendly & helpful. Room clean and tidy but warm and humid, ac/heating system can only heat or cool, was set to heat. Opened window to get fresh air before going to bed but had some difficulty sleeping due to this. Mentioned on checkout and staff promised to look into issue and dehumidify if necessary. Possible to turn off heating in bathroom if necessary. 2 free bottles of still mineral water in fridge, appreciated. Supposed to have free tea/coffee making facilities but could not find, would have asked if needed. Safe box in room worked without problem. Bed + pillows comfortable. Bathroom clean. Room faced onto back side of hotel, overlooking streets (+ limited mountain view), close to local police station. V. little street noise. Wifi not included in room price, cost €2 for 24hrs. Did not purchase as free in most other hotels and only there for one night. Breakfast delicious, good selection. Good location v. close to seafront, restaurants. Would consider staying here again if returning to the area - if Wifi free and ac/heating issue improved.
- 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
