This place was excellent the breakfast was out standing the room was better than some off the big hotels in Barcelona the service from staff very good got there very early and got a room no hassle the hotel is about 20mins to the rambles to walk but there is a lot of bars and resturants near by .we just got the number 46 bus from airport and walked across the round about to hotel by the old bull ring if getting the bus you need to get a T10 ticket only 10:90 euro from the train station at airport this will give you a pass to use on the bus +train+ underground if a couple five trips can use the same ticket hope this is help full.

I took my wife to Barcelona for her birthday and some sunshine. The hotel was better than expected and the room was superb after an upgrade due to a booking confusion.

The arrivals Manager was very helpful and understanding. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us.

Breakfast was a good selection and fresh.

Hotel was in good location to walk into the City or catch the Metro.

We would stay here again if we went back to Barcelona for a long weekend.

We stayed here for four nights for my birthday. The hotel was absolutely stunning! When we first saw the bar from the street when we were trying to find the hotel we thought it looked great, then we were very pleasantly surprised to find that was our actual hotel! Our room was lovely, spacious, really comfy bed with views (and openable doors!) onto the street below and great bathroom. Absolutely loved it and had trouble getting up in the morning! We had a similar issue in the evening as we were often tempted not to venture out as the bar was so warm, cosy and stylish, the drinks were great and the bar staff were lovely. The hotel is a 1 minute walk (if that) from a tube stop which made getting around mega easy. There were some nice places to eat nearby but we spent most of the time getting the tube to other places of interest. I can't speak highly enough of this hotel and feel very privileged to have found it, it even smelt great! If you're not sure where to go in Barcelona this is the perfect place to get easy access to the city but have a wonderful hotel at an affordable price.

Unfortunately we only got to stay here one night during our trip as we were travelling to girona but wish we could have enjoyed this hotel for longer. Walked from main train station in around 15-20 minutes and a few minutes walk to rocafort metro. Deli's and local restsurants plentiful closeby. From the minute the sound proof doors opened we were welcomed by live music, scented candles and a friendly member of staff to check us in. Room was clean and modern with a large walk in shower. Roof terrace lovely and would be great in warmer weather. Free wifi in room but would have liked tea/coffee facilities in room but wasn't a deal breaker for us. No hesitation to stay here again. Thankyou for a lovely stay and would hope to be back

8 of us booked a 3 day 2 night weekend in Barcelona. Whilst Villa Emilia is not right in the centre of the tourist area, it is only a 20 minute walk. Value for money this hotel is excellent. It is small with only 56 rooms, has a great atmosphere and the staff are really friendly. They could not have been more helpful. The rooms were modern, clean and extremely comfortable. We would definitely stay at Villa Emilia again. Thanks to all the wonderful staff and our great Cuban waiter who made amazing Mohitos.

Room Tip: We all had rooms on different floors. They were all good.

The hotel is extremely noisy (in many ways). The hotel management was theatrical and too visible, it looked like the working atmosphere in hotel was not good. The breakfast was too minimal and it was one-sided.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced regarding your stay with us; however, in all centrally-located hotel it is challenging to avoid certain types of noise, especially those coming from outside. Also we inform you that all the rooms were built with the best insulation and soundproof materials, reducing 98% of the noise. We are truly sorry to read that your impression of the breakfast and the working atmosphere in hotel so sadly differs from that of other guests. But thank you for your comments!

Modern and quality finished with very friendly staff who could not do more to please

20 min wander to the busier part of the city. Quiet overnight and beautifully presented rooms on your return from sightseeing.

A good balance of price and quality for what is a long weekend visit with friends
