“Comfortable, professional, but watch out for poor airconditioning”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

We enjoyed our 5 day stay two block north of the plaza espana and because this was on the fun city side of the plaza it was easy to get to major sites. As usually european rooms are small and this was no exception. Nice clean quiet rooms (even though we were on the street). My only complaint was the airconditioner units vary from room to room. OUr first room was way too hot and they moved us to an inside room on the same day. That room was really cool, but we wanted a room with an outside window. That air conditioner was barely adequate. I had to take a warm shower to make it feel cool at night. Did not have the breakfast, but I don't think it is worth the 10 euros. Go to a local bar for a cafe and croissant. A nice touch they do have International Herald Tribune available every day.

Dear guest,
Thank you for your comments. The air conditioning works properly but it has been really hot on these dates and the room takes a bit to get cold.Our Buffet Breakfast is nice but its easy to have breakfast everywhere around the city.
We hope to see you again in Barcelona.
Best Regards,
Marta

Clean, comfortable and quiet room. Near Placa Espana and Arena shops and dining which is a type of shopping mall. Take a ride up the lift to the top for great 360 view.
Hotel staff speaks English. Underground parking available for a daily fee. Near bicycle and scooter rental shop as well.

The rooms are not too big, but comfortable and clean. I was there for business, so it suited me perfectly. The breakfast was good and the service friendly and helpful. What I really appreciated was the free wifi and free water in the minibar. The location was good for both business (close to the convention centre) and for pleasure. Not too far from the shopping streets.

I stayed at Hotel Vilamari for 6 nights in June 2013.It's a great location as very close to Placa d'Espana which has the stop for Aerobus (15 mins from Airport and 5 mins walk from hotel).

Room was clean/quite small but sufficient.Plenty of towels and the room cleaning service each was excellent with the towels replenished each day-WiFi was good.The free fridge in the room was also very good and handy for water.Reception staff were helpful and pleasant especially when it came to recommending restaurants in the area.I did book a Cruise room which promised a special gift but this didn't' happen.Also my room was facing the lift area so it could be quite noisy at times.

The a/c in the room works well and there is also a room service available at a good price.Only 1 English channel on the t.b but I suppose it doesn't matter as your not in Barcelona to watch tv!

I would suggest that you purchase breakfast at the local boqueria (bakery) as you can easily get a juice/pastry for 2 euros.

Overall a good hotel and worth the money you pay.I was a happy camper and had an excellent stay.

Pro's:The hotel is situated near the metro and plaza de españa. It takes about 8 min to get to plaza de catalunya. Friendly hotel staff.

Con's: The beds have to pass as kingsize, but are in reality much smaller. Room is not very big (for short stays not a problem). Bath- and room were not verry clean.

Overall it was a disappointment. I had made a reservation for next August, but dicided to cancel it. Price/quality mix is not good and definitely not worth 4 stars

Dear guest,
We regret your feeling to Hotel Vilamari. All rooms are Double Standard Rooms with a Queen size bed and the size of the room is not huge but confortable. We apologize if you think the bathroom was not very clean but Housekeeping Deparment is excellent.
Hotel Vilamari is a 4 stars hotel, you could check 3 stars hotels and see the diference between. The rate change nearly everyday, from 80€ up to 300€ per night , depending the availability and events in the area. We have plenty of special promotions you could profit if you book in advance.
Best Regards,
Marta

Basic, comfy mattress and pillows. Room & bathroom are clean. Storage/closet space is adequate. Four little bottles of water daily are complimentary. Wi-Fi (free as well) worked well.

The Reception Desk was helpful, and prompt in responding to emails. The hotel is a short walk from the Aerobus drop-off and pick up points, and it’s in close proximity to 2 metro stations. The neighborhood is peaceful, and we felt safe walking around the area at night.

Wishlist: (1) An in-room safe; and (2) a door-stopper (?) for the stairwell doors. Our room was in the 1st floor, so we used the stairs often. The stairwell door has no device that makes it close gently, so you can hear the door bang close in your room if the person isn’t considerate/careful.

Dear guest,
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you have enjoyed your stay.
Hotel Vilamari is in "L'Eixample" district, which is a really quiet area and close to public transport and tourist atractions and 15 minutes walk to La Rambla, 3 stops by metro.
We apologize for the noisy door, we will do our best to stop this noise. We have safe deposit boxes at the front desk. Guest can use them for free and come down whenever they need. We ask for a deposit of 20€ for the safe key. Sorry for that, maybe you did not know.
We look forward to welcoming you next time in Barcelona.
Best Regards,
Marta

The rooms are nice and comfortable but not real big. This is not anything real unusual for Europe. The staff was very nice and helpful. The hotel is located near some good sites and is convenient to a couple of Metro stops. The only complaint that I had is our room facing the street could be loud at times.

Dear guest,
Thank you for your comments. Hotel Vilamari has Double Standard rooms, all same size, nice and modern design.
Some rooms are facing Vilamari street, other rooms are facing our terrace. If you are on vacation is better to ask for a room facing the terrace. The district is very quiet but from 8am it gets busy.
