What We Love

What To Know

  • Catalunya metro station is a three-minute walk away, and the bus to/from the airport stops at the end of the block
  • There's no bar or restaurant on-site, but there are plenty of eateries in the neighborhood
  • Street noise isn't really bothersome, but the rooms facing the inner courtyard are the quietest


  •  Free WiFi

A small hotel with big design cred and a fantastic city center location close to Plaza Catalunya

The Lowdown

A block from Plaza Catalunya in downtown Barcelona, Room Mate Pau is within strolling distance of the street artists and flower stalls of Las Ramblas, the chic cocktail bars of La Barceloneta and the upscale boutiques on the Paseo de Gracia. Designed by lauded local architect and interior designer Teresa Sapey, the 66 guestrooms are clean and modern, dominated by white with playful splashes of color and chic dark wood bathrooms. The upper-floor suites also feature terraces complete with Jacuzzis and views of La Sagrada Familia. Breakfast is served every day until noon, either in the colorful dining room or on a terrace dotted with sculptures.

In the Area

For an art fix, visit La Pedrera, one of Gaudí’s most avant-garde creations, with its decorative rooftop terraces and great views of the city, and the Museu Picasso, to see a variety of works by the Spanish master, including early sketches as well as more famous pieces. For incredible food head to Montiel Espai Gastronomic, a romantic stone-clad restaurant in the alleyways of the Born and one of Barcelona’s best-kept secrets. To see the city from above, take the cable car to Montjuic, the big hill that looms over Barcelona, to check out the national art gallery and the Olympic stadium. At night, start with drinks at Ginger, a voguish wine and cocktail bar with a film noir vibe, before bar-hopping to La Vinya del Senyor, where you can work your way through the extensive list of Spanish and Catalan wines until the wee hours.

The location of the Hotel is very central and convenient for all visits and close to all transportations. The room is very comfortable and clean and the breakfast offer is large, delicious and fresh for its price.
The front desk and all people working in the hotel is kind and supportive in all the requests we could have during our stay. We highly recommend this hotel and will try another Room Mate in our next trips in another country.

Excellent Location
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and I can say that this hotel has the best location in the city center. It is very near Placa Catalunya, El Corte Ingles, Las Ramblas, and the Gothic Quarter. It’s also very near the Aerobus to and from the airport. The room is clean and has adequate space for luggages. Breakfast buffet though has limited variety.
