Room Mate Emma
Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain|room-matehotels.com|
Official star rating:
Design-conscious travellers on a budget delight in this centrally located hotel, which packs more sophistication than its rates might suggest.
‘Emma’ is a fictional personality – a graphic designer born and bred in the surrounding Eixample district – who epitomises the laid-back cool and slightly futuristic tastes of this jazzy bolthole.
There’s mood lighting, candy-coloured walls and attractive white modular furniture throughout; the biggest rooms, with terraces, are up in the penthouse.
The breakfast buffet, complete with gluten-free and vegan choices, lasts until noon, so no need to get up early.
The hotel is located three minutes from the Passeig de Gracia, site of Gaudi’s Casa Battlo and the city’s most upmarket boutiques.
