My wife and I and two family members stayed in this hotels for 2 nights before we go on the cruise,the rooms are a bit tiny according to the american style,( most of the european hotel rooms are about the same size)but if you only want a place to sleep while on vaccation,this hotel is just about right,it's clean,quite, the price is very reasonable,and located in the cental of everything(it's like the time square of NYC).If we have a chance to visit Barcelona again(which I think we will),we will use the same hotel again.I also like to thank Susana(the front desk lady),for her friendly smile and help.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the rear are quieter.

My wife and I and just returned from a week at this hotel.

The hotel itself is located just a few minutes walk from Placa de Espanya. This is one of the main transport hubs in Barcelona. From here, you can catch the metro to anywhere in the city and the shuttle bus to and from the airport. There is also an excellent shopping centre (very plush and expensive I might add!) there, together with the majic fountains. There a number of cheap eateries nearby as well which are designed for non tourists so it all helps with saving £££.

The hotel is a small, boutique style hotel. The entrance area and patio at the rear are very nice. The rooms are a little on the small side but I guess that's to be expected in a city centre hotel. The bathrooms were nice and the showers were very powerful. The only downside was that the extractor fan only came on at certain times. After a hot shower, the room did get a bit misty!

Overall, this is a nice hotel for those who like it plain and simple!

Pretty central placed right next to the metro and placa d'espanya. A relatively small hotel with
good value for money. The rooms where very small, and just a glassdoor separates the toilet/shower and the bed. If you are two in the room there are really no privacy using the bathroom.
Brekfast was good. Will stay in another hotel next time in barca.

Smallish room but very well designed. May not be suitable for taller guests. Very shallow closets such that items had to be hung parallel to the closet door. Beautiful bathroom fixtures.
Three suggestions: Second waste basket under the desk (there's room for it!), conditioner (in addition to shampoo) and a 2nd bar of soap in the shower. Breakfast OK, but I've had better at other Barcelona hotels.

The hotel's public spaces are very attractive. Excellent location for tourism. On site parking.
Good value

This wasn't the cheapest option so a little disappointed with the room, although clean and did the job I thought it would be slightly better. The bed was uncomfortable and squeaky, and I would not have wanted to sleep another night in it. Booked through Expedia as a cruise special with welcome gift - not sure what that was as we didn't get It and it wasn't mentioned on check in or out! No safe in the room which nearly all hotels now supply but the free bottles of water were a nice touch. Good location for transport. Breakfast was overpriced so we passed on it and went to a café nearby. However the staff were friendly and helpful and allowed us a free late check out as they weren't fully booked. Good enough for a pre cruise one nighter but I would want more for a longer stay.

We stayed at this hotel before and after our cruise on the NCL Epic. October 2013. They do not have a cruise package. You will need a cab to the cruise ship ( cost was 20 euro) and to the airport (cost was 35 euro) Hotel was very clean, some staff were friendly and some staff not so much. All spoke english, so no communication problems. Never received our ordered wake up call, so set the alarm on your phone. You will need an adaptor for europe so you can plug in your cell phone etc. as they only have 1 available to loan out and its a 5 euro deposit . Very accommodating in ordering us cabs. Room was very small and TV was 15 inch, floor were wooden, bathroom had tile floors and very slippery if it gets wet. No rugs. It did have free WIFI, which was great. Bathroom was a shower in a tub, very difficult to get in and out of especially if you are elderly. If you want the breakfast buffet, you must book it on check in or else the price will increase. The breakfast buffet was good, limited selection from US standards, however you have to remember you are in Spain. Shopping mall is very close only 3 blocks away, and have an excellent selection of restaurants for dinner, and very safe to walk to. Several restaurants in this mall on the 5th floor had menus in English, but some did not open until 7pm. We ate at Happy Rock and had an excellent meal. This hotel did have dinner but I would not recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the shower only, no tub. Remember to reserve the breakfast buffet when you arriv...

Dear guest,
Thank youfor your comments. To the cruise terminal the best option is by taxi but to the airport you could take the Aerobus, running from 5am until 1am and it costs only 6€.
We usually do wake up calls and in case the guest is not answering the phone we go up and we knock the door until the guest is up.
Buffet breakfast is a good value for money and excellent quality of products. Maybe you are use to a different kind of breakfast. Hotel Vilamari is located in a quite district and close to public transport and tourist atractions.
Best Regards,
Marta

We stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Vilamari and we'd like to thank the Hotel/kitchen staff that made our stay so pleasant. They all spoke fluent English, so communication was no problem and always answered our questions and suggested things we could do with our baby.

The rooms are a bit on the smaller side, but, I guess that is the norm in Europe. The rooms were cleaned everyday and beds made, so the service really was excellent.

The breakfast had your standard fare of eggs, sausages, coffee, juices and muffins. Good stuff, but you've also got to try bakeries outside that serve local Spanish pastries.

I'd definitely recommend the Vilamari to anyone visiting Barcelona.

thank you guys for accommodating us and our 11 month old so well.
