It was in a good location on the seafront in Roses and there are restauruants/bars nearby. The buffet breakfast and room were reasonable but nothing special. Very limited facilities - bar and restaurant closed most of the time. Nothing in the evening or even self service machines. I know it was November, but some facilities for residents would have been useful.
All included, breakfast, dog, WiFi (reception), parkering No WiFi in room
The location, the staff, the rooms.
Location, price, room spacious
Hotel was simple, but very clean and plenty comfortable.
I was given an ocean view room which was unexpected. The room was large for Spainish standards and clean. The staff were very accomodatng. The breakfast was average, however the overall price compensated for that.
Excellent breakfast and room with balcony overlooking the beach and our car parked over the road in public car park The hotels private car park is a ten minute walk from the hotel but the 12 euro 24hour public park across the road is well lit at night and secure
great friendly staff and very very clean
excellent location, very helpfull staff, very pleasent stay Breakfast is really over at 10:00 and after 9:45 you can´t get almost anything. We were on vacation and wanted to sleep a bit more
Meget serice minded personale. Hotellet ligger perfekt i forhold til stranden. Deres pool er utrolig lille - nok den mindste jeg har set til et hotel.
Dejligt hotel med fin beliggenhed på stranden. Gode parkeringsmuligheder
beliggenheden helt fantastisk. Super service i baren. Værelset skønt og rent. Alt i alt rigtig godt.
Beliggenheden er fremragende når man taler om badeferie og det var en god morgenmadsbuff'é Deres senge var ikke ret gode og når der nu skal forstille en dobbeltseng, kan de to boxmadraser godt være lige høje.
værelsets størrelse samt at der var aircondition, det har jeg ikke regnet med bedre tv-kanaler
Super beliggenhed og parkeringsmuligheder til rimelig priser. Fantastisk med den lækre tagterrasse.
God beliggenhed, Venligt og velklædt personale, høflig og hjælpsom betjening. Lækkert morgenbord.
Hotellets beliggenhéd er perfekt. Et hit med poolen og terressen på taget.Byen er turistet men på den gode måde - du kan få det hele men også trække dig.
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. Just on the seafront with beautiful views of the bay. The hotel restaurant served great food - at lunch and at dinner and the breakfast was good to.
At hotellet ligger ud til strandpromenaden
der er ikke noget godt, kun dårlig oplevelse. da vi booker hotellet beder vi om værelse med altan , og da vi ankommer kan vi kun få værelse med vindue ud til en skakt, dette er meget for dårligt da bestilling er 1,5 md før ankomst, og personale er meget uvenlige og taler kun spansk, hvis det ikke er muligt at få det værelse man bestiller ,bedes man meddele os det pr mail så vi kan afbestille i god tid før ankomst.
Friendly staff, central location, great view No parking, breakfast not great
Breakfast was very poor, parking was difficult, hotel was dated, no balcony or even a view
Great location, overlooking the beach and in the heart of the town. I had a great room on the front / top floor with a great terrace and sea view. There was also a fridge and mini kitchen in the room which was useful. The hotel was a little dated - think posh 80's hotel - but I quite liked that and it was perfect for my 2 day visit to Roses. The (seafood) restaurant is good. I can't fault it really.
During the off peak periods this hotel is excellent value. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and include some self catering equipment. The location is good, near the beach and within the old town of Roses providing access to it's many bars and restaraunts. Our room was slightly worn and needed some upgrading but as stated above still clean and comfortable.
Service and comfort -attitude of the staff was excellent.location near town centre and all facilities was good.Overall a very good choice. Parking was difficult.
We liked the location of the hotel and the room to accomodate our family of four. No services available. No internet connection proposed. No help in the front desk practically inexistent.
Excellent Sea view and breakfast.
Nothing Hotel dated, unclean and staff not highly motivated
We were on our way to Barcelona, and found this place very refreshing and reposing. the hotel was a nice surprise, big suite apartment, nicely decorated and quiet as it's March.Great breakfast buffet. The personel was very pleasant and helpful It's true , it could be a difficulty for parking at peak times, we had to juggle with bags, where we could, as it was busy when we arrived. It was more of a problem for my husband as it is confusing when you don't know the city,
Location, sea view, excellent restaurant downstairs Lack of tea and coffee cups in the apartment, cigarette smoke in the hallways.
friendly and helpful staff No fruit for breakfast - but you can take your own.
atmosphere in hotel (guests), friendly and helpfull employees/staff too little shade around pool and poolbar, (the few umbrella's available where broken/not suitable for the wind) , not possible to book for rooms with airconditioning
Staff were friendly and the hotel was quiet at night;; for a hotel by the beach it was adequate Breakfast was so unpleasant even although it was included in the price we didn't go back after the first morning and didn't attempt the evening meal.Rooms extremely hot even with the air con machines on 24/24
Quiet. Staff were amused when we spoke Spanish, although we speak French too. We are Irish. Thanks for the private Parking.
nice place internet was failure
The staff are very friendly and this hotel has a genuine family atmosphere. The same staff have been working at the hotel for years. Could improve the evening entertainment
Cleane room, nice staff. Stink of sewerage outside the hotel
we like everything the food especially.....
Quiet location The hotel did not cater for the English at all. Rooms were very basic, no sun loungers, no parasols. It took half an hour to get a drink. Food was poor.
Nice sightseeing, nice bedrooms and nice countryside area no separations between bathroom and bedroom (no door between the two), not enough insulation as well
The room was very nice and the restaurant was excellent. The staff were helpful and kind The portable A/C unit in the room was new but noisy and not functional. The hotel would have been better advised to install another system. up to four silent room units can be installed on one outside compressor for probably a similar cost. i hope this comment is paased on as it is intended to be constructive.
very friendly staff
Acceptance of pets, ease of access to countryside. The litter problem is sad.
The buildings are very nice and so is the setting - an original farm at the foot of the hills of a nature reserve, away from the concrete blocks of Roses. The staff were very nice and friendly/helpful. The rooms were last removated some time ago and the furniture, interior decoration and facilities could do with an upgrade soon - looks like 1970s right now. Some facilities like water glasses, bedside tables both sides of the double bed (not just one) etc were missing. Breakfast should start earlier than 9AM. We booked this hotel at a 50% discount. On the full rate, it would have been unthinkable.
excellent location, unfortunately not warm enough to enjoy the great garden an pool. love the room with open bathroom/ jacuzzi and seperate toilet. great tasting food in the restaurant with reasonable prices. Some great home made deserts. missing a complete door on the toilet so you the other person doesnt have to enjoy the smell
The old building was very attractive and the room was unique in its design. The location out in the country was very restful. There was no heat in the room on a cool night. The lighting did not cover important areas of the room. Although the stone sink was very attractive, it was not practical for washing. Instead of the exercise machine in the room, it would have been better to have a place to keep your baggage so that it could be accessed without putting it on the bed
very sophisticated design of the rooms and the hotel itself; moreover hotel is placed in the beautiful countryside, between beaches of picturesque town named Roses and the national park nearby Cap de Creus, giving you the possibility to admire truly awe-inspiring landscapes; ideal for a romantic trip ;); I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Spacious clean room with a fine breakfast included. Right beside beach and other amenities. Air conditioning in rooms would be a major improvement
good location, sounds of the sea at night small bathroom
excelent location, clean room, nice breakfast no parking
Well presented, clean, comfortable, friendly and efficient. Nothing
Nice beachside location. The beach was groomed every morning. No air conditioning, and very noisy night life when patio door left open. None of the hotel staff we encountered was able to speak english. Would have been better if you spoke Spanish. Still having trouble making sure bill had been paid (due to communication gap), but Booking.com people have helped very much to take on that responsibility. Happy to know they were available to assist!
Easy parking out of season. Size of room. Breakfast very good selection The wash basin very shallow
Good standard .no air condishing which was needed at times .
The hotel is placed in a nice area, it's quite clean and at nights there were some musical events (during my stay it was a big fiesta at Catalonia - St. Jose). Big advantage that they offer a meal with 14 euros per person and you can eat as much as you want, including wine and water You have to avoid rooms at the backside at the first 2 floors because of poor view and noise from the ventilation. Ask for upper floor rooms. Suprisingly they cleaned our room at 14:30 (when we wanted to go for a nap)!!! Many old people (this is propably an advantage because of more silent). A very rude responsible lady for the lunch meal...
The closeness of the beach and other amenities was a real bonus, together with a great swimming pool It is in a popular area and the area was noisy until late
The desk staff are really friendly and efficient. We were greatful to have a reasonably priced place to stay in a sold-out area at the height of the season. One really nice touch is complementary soft drinks and mineral water in the room fridge. Rather uncomfortable beds and no aircon - lots of families and an unwittingly amusing guy sings into the night umpah versions of popular numbers such as 'achy breaky heart' accompanied by a loud organ whilst people line dance! Mornings promise the rousing sound of beach paddle tennis to prepare for a classy breakfast - cattle class - I attempted to get a soft boiled egg and gave up. In fairness the hotel was full to capacity and the staff coped admirably.
rigtig god beliggenhed med egen altan ud til vandet. Hvis man trænger til rolige dage ved stranden i et område med charme er dette en attraktiv mulighed nej, det levede helt op til forventningerne
Kun forsiden af hotellet ud mod stranden/bugten virker romantisk - samt har en renoveret facade....
et dejligt hotel med smagfuldt indrettede værelser, køleskab og stor balkon med havudsigt og bjerge. Nedenfor balkon lille pool og lille grønt område med teakhavemøbler, samt restaurant - fremragende mad. På den anden side af vejen fin sandstrand. Venligt personale både i reception og restaurant. Fin rengøring. Roligt byområde. Med stil. Vi vil meget gerne komme igen ! Nej.
Breathtaking scenery of Roses from each balcony; no frills, functional hotel with friendly staff; restaurant was very good value for residents. No air- conditioning/fan; no soap in bathroom. Very basic facilities in bedroom.
the views are amazing
breakfast was better than expected, perfect view over the whole village don't expec too much comfort for the price you are paying- but good enough for spending a few nights there
Nice hotel at a great location with a fabulous view over the Town and Marina of Roses. Very friendly staff who were very helpful. You can have lunch and dinner for only 7 euro. Great large pool. If we have find someting they didn´t have enough deck-chairs by the pool.
The only good thing about this hotel is the pool. You still have to be pretty fit to get to it. Built on the side of a mountain at the back of Roses this hotel was possibly very good in the 60's or 70's as it does have a restaurant, lift, discotheque 1 night per week, a bar and a very large pool. However, by todays standards this would rate as a 2 star hotel at best. The rooms smell of damp (stench of oldness), the beds are singles and old, the lift door is dangerous for kids plus you have dozens of steps to get to the bar and even more to the pool (the lift doesn't go down that far). The restaurant is really only to be used in case of starvation.
The facilities, the location The smell in the rooms (disinfectant?)
We loved the facilities, food and room. The staff where excellent and we had no problems with languages even though we don't speak spanish, thanks for a lovely stay
excellent food - breakfasts and dinners. located very close to the sea and the centre of roses. nice pool and the interior of the hotel and rooms. the staff did not speak english
Good place, excellent meal, garage. Poor change shampoos snd soaps -two times in five days it is not inaf.
Everything. Lovely friendly clean hotel right on the beach The food was good and staff very friendly. We liked it so much we stayed another night at the end of our holiday which we booked direct with the hotel.
The hotel was in an amazing location, you can lay in bed and still see and hear the sea lapping up against the rocks! The staff couldn't do enough during our stay......will definitely be visiting there again Nothing!!
position and comfort off season so only very expensive restaurants open
Good service When asked about buses to Girona, the receptionist found that a bus went at 1030am, but didn't bother to come and let us know while we had a leisurely breakfast (she knew we were there), leaving us to rush and pack and take a cab to catch the bus! An annoying ending to an otherwise lovely stay
Fantastic 5 day break. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Beautiful location with great sea views. Staff were very friendly and attentive without being obtrusive.
Excellent hotel, great staff, fabulous location. Slightly dated in a few ways. Smoking in or near the eating areas is a real problem for Californians
Beatiful hotel. Ideal setting. Staff exceptional, friendly, very welcoming. Excellent restaurant, food worth a Mitchelin star.
The service and location
The staff were very homily and made our stay very special.The gourmet restaurant was excellant and also the restaurant for lunch had freshly caught fish which was perfect
Excellant Location, Very clean and modern.Good sized terrace off room with sun loungers. Room small, but compact okay for a couple of nights. Would definatly recommend and will stay there again. The bathroom is finished to an excellant standard, my one recomendation would be a glass shower door instead of a plastic shower curtain which can detract from the final impression
This is a really lovely new hotel and the owners pride is obvious in the attention to detail. The superior room is well worth the extra as it has a large private terrace with sun beds and arm chairs.. The linens are top quality, bath robes and slippers supplied. The beds are large and comfortable, with good lighting. The hotel is extremely quiet, yet close to the beach. Excellent!
I loved my stay at hotel Carmen. Their attention to details, staff's hospitality, and clean and pleasant room made our trip memorable. The breakfast was excellent too. I had a much better stay at this hotel than many 4 and 5 start hotels in the area.
The design, cleanliness, the courteous and helpful staff. Everything was fantastic.
Hotel was really clean and the staff was very helpful. Hotel as everyting that a decent accommodaiton needs, it was simğle clean, new and very conmfortable. Locationwise it is perfect as well.
Very friendly and helpfull staff. Nice and clean room with a cosy balcony and a spacious bathroom.
Nothing. It was so bad. No one spoke English and the staff not helpful. The beds were not comfortable and the bathroom was old and dirty and the towels had holes in them.
I liked that it was not as expensive as the other places and had good service and an ocean view!!! No we got what we paid for
Excellent location Rooms very poor decor and small with tiny balcony although good sea view
We could see the sea and boats from the balcony at the front of the hotel. The staff were friendly and the 8.50 euros buffet was very good. The first room we were in at the back of the hotel had no air conditioning and was noisy.
I did not like anything. Most of the hotel staff was unfriendly. The room did not have an A/C but just some fan mode. Breakfast was served until 10:20 but cheese was finished from 9:10 and when I told them so they answered me that they are going to have more the next day. The room was not clean and either was the elevator and other hotel rooms. I am almost sure that they had not even changed the sheets because the was some hairs on them. Really bad value for money. So expensive hotel and one of the worst we have been in.
Hotellet er hyggeligt med en god atmosfære. Man føler sig straks hjemme og godt tilpas. Helpension er mere end pengene værd og kan anbefales. Jeg vil helt sikkert vende tilbage til dette hotel, tæt på stranden og midt i centrum. Perfekt for mig. Jeg læste om hotellet her på siden, men er ikke enig med 'brokkerne'.
Central, men rolig beliggenhed. Fint værelse med altan. Meget venlig receptionist, der talte godt engelsk.
Flot service fra alt personale, dejlige værelser, perfekt beliggenhed. nej
Meget venligt og hjælpsomt personale. Føler sig velkommen.
Servicen fra receptionen var fremragende. Gjorde alt for at gøre det godt for os. Aften buffeten. Var godt nok billig, men der blev hurtigt udsolgt af retterne og varede meget længe før der kom opfyldning. Og ikke alt kom igen.
Vi boede på hotellet en uge i 2010 og var rigtiggodt tilfreds. Denne gan skulle vi blot bruge en overnatnin på vejen hjem fra, Costa Blanca, hvor vi havde været til familiesammenkomst. Vi kendte adressen på hotellet og det var derfor nemt at booke online. Vi er måske blevet mere støjfølsomme med alderen. I modsætning til vores besøg i 2010 bemærkede vi denne gang, at der var tydelig støj fra nærliggende værelser.
Et hotel jeg gerne vender tilbage til. Personalet meget imødekommende. Parkering var lige nedenfor hotellet, men dyr(10 Euro). Hvis man går en 800 til 900 m hen mod havnen kan man parkere for 2 Euro i døgnet. måske rigeligt støj fra gaden.
Udvid det trådløse internet, både hvad angår kapacitet og rækkevidde.
et dejligt hotel i byen og ved stranden vi har været der flere gange og synes det er et dejligt hotel
Det er et sted man kan overnatte. Men vil på alle måder råde folk til at gå i byen og spise da der er en fremragende små resturanter. Maden på hotellet vil jeg beskrive som Junk food....!!! Der ud over ungå etage 5 :-) et + er der er rygning på hotel værelserne Lav blæseren på taget.....!!!
Særligt den gode beliggenhed. Derudover var morgenmaden rigtig god og med god betjening. Betjeningen ved hotelskrankem var fin og de ansatte var meget rare at snakke med og brugte tid på at opfylde vores ønsker, Det ene værelse, som stødte ud til en skakt var meget vármt om aftenen og natten.
The location; it was a 5min walk from the beach. (1) Rooms: It should have been mentionned that the beds were cots and not matresses; (2) We had an unpleasant experience when we asked whether we could use the hotel fridge to store a bottle of gaspacho which we opened but did not finish (gaspacho will spoil in the heat). There were no fridges in our rooms, and the hotel refused to keep it in their fridge for us. (3) Food: At breakfast time, coffee was not good (tasted burnt and sometimes way too much water) and bread was stale a few times. (4) Although according to your website, free public parking is available at a location nearby, it should be mentioned that parking is usually full and it is time-consuming to find a spot as the hotel has no reserved spots. (5) Value for $ was not great.
Clean and the owner/manager was very helpful. breakfast was good. sheets and towels clean. Completely shut up when we arrived and looked deserted. nowhere to go and have a drink as everything was totally shut up.
Location is ok, rooms are basic and super old, no soap or shampoo, no A/C, no much space, noisy..toilet is just fine, shower a bit funny... reception is open till 2330 only, breakfast is ok thou... Said above, this hotel maybe was nice, now it is not so pleasant...considered the plenty of choices around it.
