Room Mate Emma is a fantastic value hotel. We arrived early, and our room was not yet made up. We were offered the penthouse room as an upgrade, for only a few Euros more, (aroudn £50 extra for 2 nights). We could not have been happier!
The penthouse room has a private roof terrace with a large stone raised bath, (amazing for nigh-time bubble baths under the stars!) You can see over the rooftops of Barcelona, and there is a double bed outside for lounging in the sun, or cuddles in the evening. The room is very 'spcae age' in appearance and the bed is extremely comfy.
The biggest asset of the hotel are it's staff; they are very helpful and recommended some fantastic restaurants to us; They recommended a local Catalan restaurant to us that was out of this world, (can't remember the name but it's not the Cerveceria Catalunya, it was much more upmarket and well worth a visit!)
The only thing that stopped this hotel getting a 5 out of 5 was that the breakfast was rather mediocre, and the Ipod docking system in the room had a light that we couldn't turn off, which created a little unwanted disco at night.
All in all this is a brilliant value hotel, and the penthouse is unbelievably good value if you are lucky enough to be able to request the upgrade. Emma is a little gem.
Go for the upgrade to the penthouse if you can, and it's good weather.
