“Great hotel in a fantastic location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in October 2012. The first day we checked in very early and didn't expect to get a room as it was only 10am. They very helpful staff provided us with a room right away and we were able to nap and shower after a long day of travelling. The rooms are a little small but come with a fridge well stocked with free drinks including water, coke and fanta that are restocked daily but the cleaning staff. The TV was very small and there was no wifi for free in the rooms but free wifi was provided in their lounge so that was fine. There are no in room safes but you can get a safe at the front desk with your own key and separate locker space so that worked well.

The location of this hotel is amazing. Just one bus stop from the hotel (a 20 min ride) and 2 short blocks from the Plaza di Espana... a sight to see and also a public transportation hub with buses, subways and tour vehicles all stoping here. The dining in the area is fantastic as well and we found delicious food just steps away. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask that your room does not face the inner courtyard. There a few rooms that face inward and the bed...

We chose this hotel as we wanted a reasonably priced hotel in a good location. The hotel and its staff deliver so much more than the price you pay! We got the Aerobus from the airport to PlaÇa Espanya. Hotel is so easy to find and it took us less then 5mins to walk down with cases and a pram. Warm welcome from the staff and free softdrinks in the minibar. Everything is immaclate and clean. The lobby, hallways, lifts, rooms and bathroom. There is quite a selection of toileteries too including razor, toothbrush, comb, shoe buffer and the regular shampoo etc. Quite impressive for a relatively cheap 4* in Barcelona.
Location is amazing. Mini supermarché on the same block, so many cafés, fresh fruit stores, bars and the huge Arena. Spoilt for choice, even if you've not inlcuded breakfast in with your room. You can hire bikes from 2 blocks up for 6euro a day which is great value and fun! Or there's bus and metro stops literally metres from the hotel door. Definitely recommend to anyone who wants a bit of luxury for less in Barcelona!

This not our first stay in Hotel Vilamari and not much has changed over the years. I consider the location to be excellent. Close to all important things (bus to the airport, main transportation hub, famous Magic Fountain, good restaurants...
At the same time it is not too close to La Rambla (it is not far), so the the neighborhood feels friendly, not noisy.Staff is really helpful, minibar is not fancy but it is free and is replenished daily. Internet is free in the lobby. Rooms are really small but modern. Bathroom is nice spacious and clean, as everything in the hotel.
The main thing that is not ideal is that they have not changed beds since several years ago when they were perfect and now they feel a bit rundown.

Hotel Vilamari is one of the few that offers free underground parking and was one of the reasons we chose this hotel. We also found out that the hotel location was ideal as it was only a few minutes’ walk to the plaza de Espana where you can board the City hop on hop off bus tours. Also a large shopping center is at the Plaza de Espana. There are numerous restaurants within a few minutes’ walk, a bakery 50 meters from the hotel entrance and a fresh fruit store directly across the street.

The hotel accommodations were good. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only negative comments is that the breakfast is not worth the price and bordering on the cheap side compared to most of the places we stayed. I had seen other comments on this and was glad we listened.

We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had asked for a room away from the street since some reviewers commented on the noise. Our room...

The problem with this hotel is that some rooms are a lot smaller than the other small double rooms, and some have a walk in shower, some a bath and if you can get between the toilet and the glass sink then you need to get around the glass screen but if you can manage that, you must be flexible and under 12stone,slip and you have had it.Yes everything is nice and it should be its 4*, if you get the corner rooms I guess this is the same on all floors SO BEWARE AT CHECK IN the walk in shower room is ok but if over 70pounds look somewhere else.It is clean and very smart but you need to be able to move around and no coffee machines on any floors or in the room.The courtyard is overlooked by some shabby appartments but get the right room at he right price then go for it THATS WHY THE REVIEWS ARE MIXED............Bobby S

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 501 601 or any corner rooms.

Located near 2 metro stations and a big shopping mall. The room was clean and quite modern. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. Safety box by the reception and free wifi in the lobby (we had a signal on the 2nd floor too). Free minibar with soft drinks. Payed 330 eur for a double room for 4 nights, can highly recommend it
