Reviewed 13 May 2014

We stayed 5 nights for Barcelona sightseeing at Ville Emilia. It was a great place with clean rooms and an excellent service, especially during breakfast and at the bar.

The hotel is located close to the city center and a subway station. We used the bike rental offer from the hotel for 2 days. The bikes are perfect!

We can recommend this hotel!

Nice, clean hotel in the middle of Barca. 20 min. walk to Centre of Barcelona or you can walk 10 minutes the other way to the Magic Fountain and a nice Shoppingcentre(Tip; go to the roof of the centre, nice view over the founain, squere and Museum, lots of Resturants on the roof). The Hotel is also located 1 min walk to the Rocafort underground, very easy to get around. The beds could be softer, they where very hard.

Room Tip: Take a corner room, 58, 68 they are supposed to be bigger.

Booked this hotel due to all the good reviews. It certainly lived up to its reputation and would want to stay here again on our next visit to the city. Everything was perfect. Superb ambience, comfortable rooms, good food, delightful sincere staff & the complimentary tea/coffee and pastries between 5 & 7pm was a very nice touch and much appreciated.

Stayed here four nights. Staff were mostly pleasant and helpful but quality of information provided varied depending on who was manning the front desk. Rooms are definitely on the smaller side, even for Europe, but generally comfortable. Good A/C for a few warmer days. Generally quiet except our first night when a room full of unattended children were allowed by their parents staying in a different room to run the halls and slam doors until after 11:30. The situation was handled efficiently by front desk staff after just one call. Beds were a bit on the harder side but provided a good night's sleep. Strange square pillows mentioned in other reviews really were difficult to get used to and shower was architecturally interesting but challenging to use. Hotel conveniently located to underground but a hike to most sites otherwise. Breakfast was purchased and food and staff were good. Overall would feel safe recommending this hotel but would check out other properties in the future.

Thank you for having chosen Villa Emilia hotel as your accommodation in Barcelona. We have seen that the perception of the size of the rooms varies from one client to another depending on where they come from; despite that, the comfort is always there. Our hotel’s staff are always available to solve any doubt and make you enjoy your stay. It is important that you always inform us of any kind of problem in order to find the best solution. This extends to the hardness of matrasses and the shape of the pillows. Please comment these aspects at the hotel’s reception; we can offer alternatives, which will help you to have a good rest. Thank you for recommending our hotel. We wish you all the best.

Just returned following a 5 night stay at the Villa Emilia Hotel with my wife - we had a fabulous time in Barcelona which was enhanced by this excellent hotel. Great location 100 metres from Rocafort metro station plenty of local cafes etc and a pleasant 20 minute walk to the centre. This has to be one of the best hotels we have stayed in great room very comfotable bed, fantastic en suite. The roof top bar is great place to relax at the end of the day. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful - special mention for the bar staff especially RUI great fun excellent cocktails - try the Bellota ham in the restaurant you wont be dissapointed we also recommend a restaurant called "Bardot" fantastic Catalan cuisine - we will be back

Just returned from 3 nights at Villa Emilia and honestly can't find fault with anything about the hotel or the service. Right from the moment you walk through the doors to be greeted by the most wonderful smell, akin to Jasmine, the experience was pretty much perfect.
Location wise, the Rocafort metro station is 20 yards away, and 20 minutes gentle walk will see you at either the Plaza Espanya or the top of Las Ramblas. Great starting point for a day exploring the city in any direction.
Thanks to all the staff for helping make a fantastic weekend in a fantastic city.

Stayed 4 nights at Villa Emilia in April. Location is quite convenient and staff is helpful and pleasant. - bar staff are good fun, great Mojitos ! Rooms are a little on the small side and the beds too firm for my liking. Ask for an extra mattress pad. Recommend.

Thank you very much for highlighting our hotel’s location and its staff’s kindness, as well as other aspects which you decided to share with other travellers. Concerning the rooms of the Villa Emilia hotel, they have a standard size, between 23 and 27 m2. It is true that we don’t have Junior Suites or Suites. However, in Barcelona standard rooms are typically larger compared with what is considered normal in most European destinations. We also appreciate you recommending an extra mattress pad, given that, above all, we care for our clients’ comfort, and try to satisfy those aspects which can vary from one client to another. We wish you all the best!
