One block from the very user friendly Barca metro. The hotel is slightly modern, very tasteflly decorated, great bar and breakfast (included for us). Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are nice and just large enough. We had an exterior room overlooking the block. It was never too loud or too busy. The one thing I would caution is if you... More

Really spacious rooms, extremely helpful staff, 5 mins walk to train, and my goodness, when we stayed, the most beautiful pianist playing in the bar/restaurant in the evenings. We really were spoiled. Rooftop bar to enjoy a drink, and lounge. Highly highly recommend

With so much choice in Barcelona and never being there before I think that Villa Emilia hits the spot. So easy to get to from the airport - Aerobus to second stop Urgell, cross the road walk back two blocks and you are there. Checked in straight away, room very nice and airy, plenty of space and amenities. The metro... More

Pretentious and overrated. My girlfriend and I spent three nights in this hotel. Having read all the positive reviews we arrived we expected more than what was delivered. First of was the load music played in the hotel reception area. Tired from having spent all day walking around the streets of Barcelona, it would have been nice to arrive back... More

We chose Villa Emilia based on other reviews and were very pleased. Our stay was last minute due to airline delays and we had to make a quick decision. The hotel more than exceeded our expectations. Lovely room and fantastic staff!

The rooms are nice and comfortable but I couldn't turn off the heating in my room (apparently its kept on non-stop during winter) so had to keep the window open. The rooftop is ok but would have been great if it also had a pool. The breakfast was excellent and the bar/restaurant area cosy. It's quite a walk from the... More

After a less then mediocre night at the Ght Maritim Hotel in Calella, this hotel is bliss. Close to La Rambla and the tube, with a rather too tempting bar on the roof... Can parking available nearby as well. We will be back.

Good location for reaching everywhere. Infront of the metro station. Far away from city crowd... Rooms are a little bit small. Average breakfast. Good to stay compared with price. I may choose next tlme again

We stayed here last month for three days. We had been in Barcelona a few weeks earlier at a different place but this time stayed a little further from the harbour area. It has a little more flavour of Barcelona, not just tourists. The hotel is very clean and welcoming. The room was small, not tiny, and most appropriate for... More

...a seven day stay in Barcelona for a conference cannot be considered a hardship, but when the standard of service is of the standard at this hotel it leaves one hankering for an even longer stay. This is a gem. It is slightly off from the main attractions but immediately adjacent to a metro and so easily accessible to almost... More

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
