I stayed here for 5 nights with my brother and boyfriend while visiting Barcelona. Initially was quite impressed with the hotel. Really nice room with lovely common areas. The rooftop bar is nice, which is one of the reasons why we initially booked the hotel. We had breakfast one day which was really nice, but opted to eat out the... More

The location of this hotel is perfect -a short walk from Place Espana which is one of the stops of the bus from the airport and within walking distance of the main tourist attractions, but being up a side street in a residential area, it was pleasantly quiet. There were many pavements cafés in the area frequented by tourists and... More

Location is perfect (if you don't mind to use metro) The hotel is 1 block (around 100 meters walk) away from Rocafort metro station. What means after a short metro ride you are in Passeig de Gracia and Placa de Catalunya. At the same time hotel is a silent and very safe area. The hotel is in 150 meters away... More

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Emilia. The hotel is not in the middle of Barcelona, but we enjoyed being away from all the touristy areas and preferred a quieter area. You can still walk to Las Ramblas and the metro station is just down the street, but if you preferred to be in the middle of all the "action",... More

Myself and my husband stopped at this little boutique'y hotel in July 2014 for our wedding anniversary. It was ideal for couple's who were wanting a nice quiet location, but close enough to walk to restaurants and shopping etc. It was very central and just short taxi rides away to see the sights! Our accommodation included breakfast, which was basic... More

Just walking into this hotel makes you feel welcome. the staff were extremely friendly and attentive and made you feel quite at home. The rooms were lovely with clean lines and modern décor. At breakfast I especially liked the 'boil your own egg' facility and the cut fruit was excellent quality, ripe, fresh and flavoursome. The hotel is situated close... More

We stayed in this hotel over the weekend and it was perfect. In a quite spot only a 15minute walk to the main square where all the tourist buses stopped. The staff were amazing so attentive and I really liked the rooftop terrace for afternoon drinks

This is a small boutique hotel in a residential area of Barcelona. It's far enough from the beaten track to be a great place to walk and explore and close enough that you're near any transportation you want to take to see all the sites. The rooms are quite small but well equipped. Breakfast was wonderful and plentiful. The rooftop... More

Thanks a million for your extensive review of the hotel. We are very happy that Villa Emilia remains your choice when you come back to Barcelona. Concerning the rooms, they have a standard size, between 23 and 27 m2. It is true that we don’t have Junior Suites or Suites. However, we can say that in Barcelona standard rooms are... More

Our stay here was nice and was conveniently located (close to most attractions). The roof terrace and the view was beautiful and peaceful. Only downfall was the bed we got wasn't what we asked for -we got to single beds put together instead of a Queens size bed. Also the bath towels were not changed that frequently. But overall, great... More

This is a modern hotel with small but comfortable rooms, great service, and a lovely roof terrace. It is located in a quiet mixed neighborhood one block from the metro. There are nearby shops to buy yogurt, fruit, wine etc. for breakfasts and snacks.
