“Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

Spent an amazing 4 days in Barcelona staying at the Villa Emilia. This hotel does not disappoint as a 4 star it was truly perfect.

The first thing you'll notice on arrival is how amazing the reception area smells all the time from all the scented candles. The decor is very modern with quirky little touches. Staff are super attentive and very friendly. The rooms are a really good size for a city hotel. Really nice touches with both full size windows opening onto Juliette balconies. Spotlessly clean bathroom with walk in shower. Huge fluffy towels changed daily.

We ate in the restaurant once during our stay and found the food to be of very high standard. The set menu is reasonable at €25 each including wine.

The roof top terrace bar really was the icing on the cake, hand poured g&ts at your table could not have been any better. Lots of comfy seating and fairy lit palm trees.

The location just 1 minute from a metro and 15 mins walk to La Ramblas was ideal.

Stayed July 2014

Beautiful hotel with a lovely breakfast, which was discounted if you signed up when you arrived. Nice little bar on roof terrace with free coffee, cold drinks and pastries between 5-7 each day. Only criticism was that the rooms are supposed to be soundproofed, road noise was acceptable but anyone coming out of lift or just talking near your room door could be heard very clearly. Maybe some soundproofing around doors would solve this. Very comfortable beds.

A lovely boutique hotel situated just 20 mins waking distance from Las Ramblas and just 2 mins from the closest metro stationfrom las Ramblas.

My Wife booked this as a surprise for my 40th Birthday. The hotel was small and had a fantastic and stylish decor, the rooms were well appointed and comfortable. The room terrace bar was wonderful we went there both evenings to enjoy the complimentary pastries washed down with a refreshing beer or glass of cava.

The continental breakfasts were nicely presented with plenty of choice.

We picked up the open top bus from Espanya which was just one stop from the metro.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed 2 nights at Emilia and it was perfect in every way , the rooms are very spacious, clean and modern , free wifi and location is just perfect , and quiet . Very easy to get around from the hotel just a 20min or so stroll through the streets which are designed for pedestrians and pushbike riders to all the great attractions. We were fortunate as the Harley Davidson Bike rally was on over the weekend we stayed and was great entertainment as well. Also an easy walk to del Rambla strip and the Cathedral and port. Enjoyed listening to the pianist at the hotel in the evening with a lovely glass of wine all in all just a fabulous hotel with a wonderful atmosphere . Would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here for three nights - everything was very nice. Good sized room, great bathroom - very clean. Good location - easy walk or short, inexpensive taxi ride to sights. Stayed on 2nd floor with room facing street - lots of traffic but literally didn't hear it with the windows closed & AC on. Minor complaints would be - Beds are a bit hard & wifi is slow. Staff was very kind - & helpful. Went out of their way to help us print tickets, suggestions etc. Would definitely stay here again!

Attentive, clean, wonderful staff, great quiet location. Six of us stayed four nights before a cruise. The staff helped track down my sister-in-laws missing luggage from a flight, and also found us transportation to the cruise ship when an unexpected taxi strike occurred. Always willing to help. Great wi-fi, and the rooftop lounge perfect after a long day of seeing the beautiful sites of Barcelona.

We stayed here for 2 nights after a cruise. The hotel is a little off the normal tourist path which was a plus for us. The hotel is a block from the metro which provides easy access to all of the attractions of Barcelona.The staff is extremely friendly and helpful! We received some great restaurant recommendations. Rooms were very comfortable and spacious. We would definitely stay here again.
