You will love this place. It is very reasonably priced for the location. It's close to the ocean and spectacular views and is very quiet since it's not right on the main street. The only minor problem is the main street is one way so you don't want to miss your turn on the very narrow street to get to...

Very friendly reception in any respect, authentic, cordial and never obtrusive. Excellent service with a good breakfast. You can walk to the sea in only two minutes. Highly recommendable. Will definitely stay here again my next time in Spain.

The hotel was clean with excellent services and a short walk from the sea front. The staff were very friendly. We had champagne for breakfast to celebrate our Anniversaries. Good places to eat locally.

Used TripAdvisor to find a hotel in Roses for a week's stay in September. This was the number two rated at the time and proved to be absolutely perfect for our needs. The hotel is centrally located in a warren of narrow streets and only one minute to the sea front. The standard throughout the hotel is excellent and the...

If you rather stay in a boutique hotel other than one of the big ones, we would highly recommend this charming and friendly hotel. 1 min walk from the beach, spotless clean little room (if you are willing to add 10 euros you can get a room with a lovely terrace). Secure parking for 5 euros a night. Excellent breakfast....

We have stayed in this lovely resort many times but this was our first stay in this family run hotel. We loved it. It is so well situated - near to the beach and town centre. The parking was safe and secure - a short walk from the hotel. Our room was spacious - especially the bathroom. The pretty balcony...

Was able to find a room here last minute. Was a little skeptical because of the 2star rating but the reviews were good and they were spot on. We loved our stay; quiet, comfortable room and bed, very friendly, helpful reception. We actually tried to book a second night but hotel was full due to the busy season. Breakfast was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Carmen is a tribute to Carmen & Josep, who first started welcoming travellers in their humble home in the early 1950's. The three buildings that make up the property have been recently refurbished and turned into a contemporary mediterranean hotel with a peaceful and delicate design that evoques those times. The house is located in the center of town among locals and their daily lives, and just 50m from the beach and Roses' magnificent sunset promenade. There are various rooms types available for guests, ranging from large rooms with balconies and terrasses, to smaller ones with windows. What all rooms have in common are great ergonomic mattresses & pillows, WiFi, a laptop sized safe, minibar, satelite TV, plus l'Occitane amenities and a haidryer in the bathroom. All rounded up with a nice breakfast with plenty of local products and freshly made coffee. For travellers arriving by car a garage is available as well. ... more   less
