Terrific location, one block to the Diagonal metro which is a hub to everywhere in Barcelona. We managed to see everything we wanted to see in the 4 days we were there, either by walking or using the metro. Staff were super friendly and helpful. Comfortable beds and nice shower/ bathroom area. Yes the rooms are small but perfectly adequate. Excellent buffet breakfast, though serving area got crowded at times and only one slow coffee machine. All kinds of eateries near bye.

The rooms are spacious, stay in good condition, bed is comfortable, and they had a tea/coffee making facilities in the room, which I really liked. Next trip I will be back.

Wonderful friendly, helpful staff has to be the most important facet of this hotel. The area is perfect away from the tourist crowd but close enough to walk. Some great little neighborhood cafes, restaurants and bars within a block. Well maintained, clean we loved our room at the front, the staff cautioned it might be noisy, we loved it, kept the window open most of the time, just a fun part of being in the city.

Stayed for 7 nights. Near a metro station, walking distance from Passeig de Gracia and Plaza de Catalu√Īa, wonderful friendly and helpful staff (Rut, Isaac, David, Karem and Leticia) close to some very good restaurants, very good breakfast, quiet, left nothing to desire except the illumination in the room that could and should be better and caused an unpleasant feeling as if something were missing. Very confortable bed and very good shower! We felt immediately as if we were at home.

We stayed at Room Mate Emma Barcelona as a couple for 3 nights in a superior category room. The location is close to almost every major points of interest and we always walked down to those places. Super friendly and smiling staff at the front office. We never used room service but I understand that in most of such budget type hotels, you should not expect room service and we never had any requirements for room service. Buffer breakfast was excellent and despite being purely vegetarian, we were ... Read more

For the price and location this hotel is so perfect. You are walking distance from EVERYTHING and I mean everything... we walked to the Sagrada Familia, a few different Gaudi buildings and even all the way to the Picasso Museum and restaurants. The staff is so friendly and helpful!! The rooms are clean and comfortable. This hotel is a little gem in Barcelona!

Room Mate Emma looks great on the outside, very good location, and we were pleasantly surprised by a wonderful staff! The value is excellent considering the staff and location. However, the quirky decor was not quite our style, seemed to be white plastic Ikea furniture everywhere! Though it was very clean, the furniture and neon lighting was a little odd. But, once the lights were off, a very pleasant sleep, very little road noise even though we were facing a busy street and the bed was comf... Read more

We checked-in for 2 nights to enjoy Barcelona night life right in its center. The hotel is located in Eixample near Ave Diagonal with great restaurants and bars near by. The room was specious and clean but quite simple for its price. Staff is helpful with many tips what to do in the city (don't hesitate to ask for advice) and smiling all the time.The breakfast offered is fine though basic and we decided to have it out on the second day.

The location is great and in the center but not in a noisy area. The staff was so generous and welcoming. They happily answered every question we had. The room is very nice and the radio inside is a cool feature :) The shower was the best we had. The bad was comfort and the room and hotel were always clean and tidy. We defenetly recommend adding the breakfest, yum. The design of the hotel is unusual. We enjoyed our stay very much and would love to come back!

Hotel in good location, not far from Diagonal MRT. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, giving us information on which places to visit for our 3 day stay. Room was really nice, modern and roomy with comfy beds. Breakfast was good with a variety of options to choose from for ‚?¨9. Hotel near shops, restaurants and supermarkets, not far from the attractions.

very nice and Cousy hotel, nice staff - very polite and helpful (and english speaking, which is not common in the area), great location - full of restaurants bars and shops around. they upgraded us to the deluxe room since the regular room we ordered was on the first floor and they figured it could be too noisy for us. the room was very clean and well equipped.

I really liked this hotel. The staff was super nice and the location was good. We had one of the rooms with terrace and it was great to lay there and enjoy the sun. Room was, well small, but not too small, compact would be the right word. The bathroom was big enough and the terrace extended the room area nicely. WiFi worked great and the portable WiFi was a great addition to their services. Breakfast was sufficient, although the variety did not change at all during our 4 nights visit. Few sma... Read more

We spent 4 nights in a triple room at Room Mate Emma. The staff were always cheerful and very helpful and the hotel was in a great location which was close to the city centre (10-15 min walk) and with lots of great places to eat. Great hotel for families too.

Well trained staff, helpful and hard working. Busy hotel, but well kept and clean. Room size and amenities are ok. Shower is silly, for both pressure and temperature control. BUT I paid $380/night booked online. Absolutely a crime. If you can get a room for $150, this hotel is fine.

Room Mate Emma is in central Barcelona and only about 10 or 11 blocks from the Sagrada Familia and about 4-5 from major shopping streets and Gaudi buildings The rooms are small but very well designed and have that wonderful luxury, rare in Europe, of coffee and tea making facilities in the room. The breakfast is great and the keen young staff at the front desk are really on the ball with healpful advice. This is an interesting and comfortable place to stay.

We had a great stay in Barcelona, Room Mate Emma. Location is good, close to shopping streets and easy access to metro. The hotel is very clean and modern, and the staff helpful. Breakfast was quite good and served till noon! If you are a light sleeper you might need earplugs (noice from the hallway).

It was everything i wanted and even more! I enjoyed my stay in this hotel for one week! Excellent location, very near to everything, helpfull staff and a very good breakfast! It is a small boutique hotel but you will have everything you need. My room was perfect. Very clean...large comfortable bed and great soft music. The only problem was that some nights there was noise from people outside the hotel. But because i was always too tired i could continue my sleep... Indeed highly recommended

Spent 3 nights here as a mini honeymoon and everything was fantastic. Staff welcoming when upon arrival and made us aware of everything in the hotel. We had a suite with terrace as it was a special occasion. Lots of room, Air con was very cooling and the room had everything and more.

We stayed here for five nights. The staff were wonderful, genuinely want to make certain you have a good trip. Helpful with suggestions and assistance. Easy walk to the metro station and many attrations, Breakfast was awesome! The room was spacious by Eurpoean standards. I was not thrilled with the modern bathroom as it did not allow for much privacy, Bed was comfortable and room was quite, no street noise. Would stay here again!

I stayed for 1 night at this hotel with my family. The location is great, of you want to be in this area. Not a lot of traffic on the street, but that only counts if you have a room to the front. I guess that there are 1 or 2 rooms with view to the street and 3 with view to another street on the back (but you can only see part of the building s. The lock of the door is a little tricky, honestly we did not like it. A lock that you need to try 2-3 times, every time, to open it, is quite annoying. ... Read more

we stayed in this hotel July 3-5, 2016 before we got onto a 12-day cruise. On July 5, when we were having the buffet breakfast inside the hotel, my wife's backpack was stolen from her chair by the dining table, while we just walked out to get our food. It was a very small dining room. We realized it missing just a few minutes later and immediately notified the front desk staff of what happened and requested to have the security camera to be reviewed.

I would absolutely recommend this hotel for a couples stay - me and my partner stayed here last weekend and upgraded to a deluxe room for a small fee (10 euros), the whole hotel was spotlessly clean and slick.

My wife, son and I stayed for three nights during what was a very hot/muggy week in August. We selected this hotel as it was a two-minute walk to a Metro stop (Diagonal), and with a five-month old baby - and associated paraphernalia - in tow, it was easy to see why this hotel was an obvious option! The reviews were good; I had stayed in a Room Mate hotel in Madrid last December, so knew the level of service would be high. And I wasn't disappointed.

Hotel Room Mate Emma - is a well priced hotel, modern with some very nice touches (like chilled ambient music on in the room when you arrive) It is located just outside the center which helps with the price, so it's usually about a 20mins walk to the middle of all the activity, so at night the hotel is quiet which is great for a city location. Breakfast is brilliant, full range of everything and you wont find a cheaper breakfast for the quality anywhere else, so I would eat at the hotel in th... Read more

The hotel is reasonably well located. many important tourist places are walkable distance away and the metro stations too are close. However the rooms are small and basic in facilities. the rooms are also a little over-priced. I was informed on check-in that my breakfast was included - I confirmed the same on my first morning and then on check-out, they charged me. They said they had made a mistake at the time of check-in. Since I was getting late for my train, I had no alternative but to pay b... Read more

A group of us stayed here for 3 nights in four rooms. Two on the 1st floor & two on the 6th floor. The metro appears to run directly under the hotel which causes some disturbance, although it doesn't run between midnight & 6am, Monday to Thursday. The stay on the 6th floor was excellent. The breakfast buffet was a little limited, but excellent quality. The staff were also extremely helpful. A great location.
