Very nice hotel, clean, accommodating, and wonderful breakfast. Retro modern deco; fabulous staff; just three blocks from main street where you will find the Predera and Casa Batillo. Also, main stop for Barcelona Hop On Hop Off tour bus. Very reasonable, especially for Barcelona. Good restaurants within walking distance. Must try, won't regret your stay. Ask for room with view.

Room Tip: Room with an outside view

Great design hotel that I would recommend to everyone! We (2 best friends) stayed at 'Emma' for 4 nights. The whole staff (from the people at the reception to the cleaning lady) was very helpful and friendly! We felt very welcome. We loved the design (interior & exterior) of the hotel. We had a deluxe room on the 7th floor, situated at the front of the hotel. Very modern room, great bathroom facilities, speakers throughout the room and very fast Wifi! The breakfast-buffet was very big and of great quality. Breakfast was available until noon (12), which perfectly fitted our Spanish rhythm :) The hotel is a 2-minute walk from metro stop 'Provença' (which has an underground walking-connection to the 'Diagonal' stop). Within 20 minutes you can walk to Plaça de Catalunya. The neighborhood around the hotel is full of great restaurants and bars (also many gay bars). We're definitely coming back!

Can't recommend this hotel enough.

As soon as we arrived the staff member on the desk (his name was Isaac) made us feel very welcome and looked after us the whole time we were here. Even going as far as to recommend and book us a table at a very nice restaurant.
The room was well sized, beds are so comfy and the sound system built into the wall meant I could listen to my music while chilling and getting ready to go out. A very clean hotel and our room was cleaned and towels etc changed daily.

Breakfast is continental but has cooked meats and scrambled eggs.
Well situated as it's only 5-10 mins walk from a lot of the central shopping areas etc.

We will definitely be back!

Although not within the main tourist area we havent regret staying there. The location of the hotel was near many good places to eat, compared to the low quality food offered in the main tourist area. The staff was very friendly and the rooms adequate although not very spacious. The breakfast was really good and free wifi was also available. Definately could recomend it.

While we were in Barcelona we stayed at three hotels. This was the first, and the best. My husband really liked this hotel.The room was a good size. Bathroom had an excellent shower. The bed was the most comfortable of all the hotels in which we stayed. Breakfast was very good, and consisted of both a hot (scrambled eggs, bacon,) and cold breakfast (a variety of cereals, including a delicious muesli, cheeses, cold meats, yoghurt, bread, rolls, pastries, and a variety of fresh fruit. The hotel was in a great location for exploring Barcelona. It was within walking distance of Las Ramblas and Placa de Cataluna, the square for which most tours departed. A cold refreshing drink (ice water, ice water with lemons, or ice water with oranges) greeted you as you entered the hotel. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Our second hotel was a four star hotel, but this hotel offered superior service to the four star hotel.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor, and when we arrived the elevator was broken. I was just recovering from a...

Great location close to heaps of tourist attractions (including some of Gaudi's houses) and the subway (which is fantastic). Modern, clean hotel with excellent facilities including an underground car park. It only has a few car spaces and it is supposed to be first come, first served but I managed to persuade them to guarantee us a spot, which so close to town is excellent, even if it does cost you more. And the staff are just wonderful. We had all our stuff stolen and they were just so helpful in helping us get back on track. It's not cheap but no worse than comparable hotels in the area.

The location of the hotel is great, next to the metro station and 5 minutes away from Las Ramblas. You can get by foot to many touristic sights. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived earlier and they kept our luggage until the room was ready. The room was clean and comfortable with an average size and free Wi-fi. Our room was a standard one with no street view and there was no noise at all. The breakfast was great with plenty to chose from.
I would definitely recommend this hotel!
