“Imaginative and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

An intimate and friendly place near Plaza Espana, with very helpful staff. Decor is imaginative with jazz in the stylish bar/restaurant. Very clean and fresh. Only issue was had to wait for air conditioning to be switched on.

We loved this small boutique hotel with its very friendly staff. Great location whether you are heading out to explore by foot, metro or bus. Also a quick trip to the train station. The food in the restaurant was great. We enjoyed both morning breakfasts and dinner one evening. Hope we can get back here someday.

Room Tip: We were in Room 24 facing the street and it was just fine.

We were so pleased to hear about your wonderful experience at the Hotel Villa Emilia. We thank you for sharing your opinion with other travellers as it will undoubtedly be very useful to them, especially concerning the meals at the Zinc Bar, your comments about our staff and the great location of the hotel. We hope you can come back and see us again soon and do some more exploring of Barcelona and Catalonia! We're only a hop, skip, and a jump to Sants-Estació, where you can always grab a train to other beautiful places in our "pais petit." Enjoy the spring and do receive a warm embrace from all of us here at Villa Emilia!

This a very pleasant hotel in an ideal location slightly outside of the city centre but you can walk or take the metro which is only 50 metres away. The rooms are modern and very clean so are just what you need for a city break. The staff are very friendly and look after everything with a smile on their faces.

There is so much to do in Barcelona and this hotel is a really place to stay and see it all. Highly recommended!

I dont have a great deal to say about this hotel because it was just perfect !! highly recommended, clean, great service and excellent food. Roof top bar is beautiful and the perfect place to chill out after a days adventures in Barcelona. Far exceeded my expectations.

We booked this hotel following a write-up in The Times where it was rated one of the top 50 hotels in Europe under £100 per night and positive reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed.
Location is ideal - just 50 yards from the Metro and three stops to the centre. Being slightly away from the city means there are lots of good value restaurants nearby (frequented by locals). We ate at the hotel one night - very good.
The hotel is modern, stylish and not too big. Rooms are comfortable. Excellent friendly staff. Lively bar and pleasent roof terrace.

Plus points -

only a short walk from the airport bus.
Lovely free coffee at 5pm
really friendly waiters
nice terrace bar on roof.
Had a nice meal in the evening

Only downside was that it was a fair way away from las rambles and the beach but at the time of year we walked the whole way there.

Would stay there again.

We thank you so much for sharing your opinion and your point of view about the hotel Villa Emilia. Regarding the distance from the hotel to any point of interest in the city, the hotel is close to the underground Rocafort station (L1 red line). The underground in Barcelona is very fast, you can take it and arrive easyly to any point in the city. We appreciate your feedback as it will undoubtedly be very useful to other travelers. We hope to see you again soon. Best regards from all the team at Hotel Villa Emilia.
