Had a lovely long weekend at the hotel and found it to be a short walk from the aerobus stop. It was in a quite location but easily accessible to the city centre by either the underground or walking as we always did. The bar on the rooftop was enjoyable each night and all the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely would recommend.

Thanks to Trip Advisor and numerous reviews, we decided to stay at the Villa Emilia. What a great decision! In addition to being charming, the hotel was immaculate and the staff extremely professional and helpful. Although the hotel is not close to Las Ramblas, there is a metro station almost outside the door. Taxis are another option.
If you decide to stay, we would recommend that you stay for breakfast. A first class operation all the way.

We've been in Villa Emillia for 3 nights. price was ok, and the rest was perfect!! we enjoyed all from the helpful staff, to the stylish rooms, the cool "Zinc bar" and the nicely decorated lobby. That was a heart warming experience! we definitely recomend (go for a deal with breakfast - it worth it)

Room Tip: from the airport - take the earobus to the hotel

If you are on a budget, visually like nice digs and don't mind cabs or metro, this is the place to be. IKEA furniture, beds AND pillows hard as stone. No privacy to the bathroom and no ability to turn off the heat. This hotel is cool and sexy, easy trip town town. Desk clerk can direct you to only a few places locally for ANYTHING. Otherwise it's perfect

We wanted to thank you for sharing your opinion with other travellers. It is really good to hear that you found our hotel cool and sexy. The Villa Emilia is a boutique hotel lovingly maintained with beautiful touches that stand out from the modern and stylish décor created by the most meticulous design team. Our range of top designers include lamps by Ardi, Artemide, Joana Bover and Sebastian, flooring by Totconsa, wall decorations by Vescom, furniture from Flamant, parasols by Tuuci, tables and chairs by Hans J. Wegner, and accessories from the Poldersman group, Henry Dean, and DK Home. Our rooms are comfortably designed and completely furnished. We are truly sorry to read that your impression of the furniture so sadly differs from that of other guests. But thank you for your comments!

We went on a couples trip for Memorial Day weekend to Barcelona and selected Villa Emilia for our stay based on great reviews, pics and price!

We prefer to be "out of the tourist zone", so being in this area was just perfect for us. We were able to walk to all the best parts of towns (from NYC so we LIKE to take long walks) and found a few places to use the "hop on/hop off" bus passes to get to some of the farther parts of town.

Villa Emilia was perfectly clean, basics were covered and it worked well for us. A solid boutique hotel stay abroad -- room was more spacious than we expected!

The hotel is a little away from main area but close to plaza espanol and arena. I stayed in the hotel for 8 days for both pleasure and biz. I had a quet room with nice bath which was really great. Deco was like you are at home. It's not fancy but comfortable. Room was cleaned very well everyday. I found that the hotel stuff were hit or miss. I had very nice welcome when I checked in but when I checked out, I was not even greeted and not asked how my stay was or if I need a cab. (different person from the check in) I was also charged 5 additional breakfast which I did not take and we needed to go back and forth to reconcile the issue. After those charges were removed, I said thank you and he just said ok. He didn't even bother to ask if I need taxi though I had huge luggage. He just disregard me and went back. Not sure because it was 7:30am and he was cranky but come on. You are in hospitality industry. The passport control at airport was much nicer than him. I think there are a few excellent stuff including the lady who works at the bar, always greeted me with nice "ola". Overall, room, breakfast and some stuff were nice so will give 4 star.
