“Charming place to stay”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

Thanks to TripAdvisor reviews, we spent three nights at Villa Emilia a few weeks ago. Attractive boutique hotel with attentive, helpful staff. We were delighted with the location - quieter neighborhood, but short walk to the sites - especially lovely Montjuic Park and fabulous Miro Museum and an even shorter walk to two metro stops. We would not have been happy had we stayed on the crowded Las Ramblas. Room was well appointed & bed was very comfortable. Appreciated having a safe in the room. Liked the afternoon coffee/ pastry refreshments.

Slightly away from the main part of Barcelona Las Ramblas is a good 1.5 mile walk away. It is though close to the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc and a taxi ride to Poble Espanyolmore (well worth a visit really enjoyed visiting here. 6/10

I’ve given this a good rating purely for the service given to us by Izabel in the Zinc Bar, very friendly and polite. Reception staff were also very good assisting us with taxis and accommodating us with a late check-out. Bar staff were also very friendly. 9/10

The room was comfortable but rather on the small size for two people (room 53). Unfortunately I had a bad night’s sleep due to the poor quality pillows and the stuffiness of the room at times. The wardrobe lacked a good supply of hangers and there were none for women wishing to hang skirts etc. Bathroom was adequate but soon steamed up and I didn’t like the sliding door to the bathroom. There is a long mirror in the b/room but this could be position better in the bedroom. Though the room does have a minibar I was surprise at having to pay for bottle water thought this might be complimentary. 6/10

We ate at the Zinc Bar on the first night and have to say it was a delicious meal. Afternoon tea on the mezzanine is not that great a pot of coffee/tea with a selection of 2 pastries (probably left over from breakfast)! I was though very pleased with the breakfast selection all very good. 9/10

Overall – a pleasant stay for two nights (no more) would have preferred a larger room, and the location was too far for me.

Wife and I travel frequently even before we were married. We decided to start giving our feedback on hotels, restaurants and attractions as this site has helped us a lot in the pass.

First review is hotel Emilia in Barcelona, Spain. Due to our busy lives we had to postpone our honeymoon. So we stayed here for 1st leg of our European honeymoon June 1, 2014 for 4 nights.

The welcome drink they gave us was lovely, rooms, lobby, restaurant lounge was super nice and clean. We've stayed at some "high end" chain hotels, but must say hotel Emilia is one of our top 2 hotels we"ve ever stayed at. The service from the staff was so friendly, and the maids did such a great job cleaning our room! Beds were super comfortable especially after a long flight on air canada rouge :(

Location was fantastic. We were only a couple of min away from Rockfort metro, and also close to the aerobus. My advise if your coming from the airport and taking the aerobus get off at Urgell station.

Unlikely we will not visit this hotel again :( as we don't travel to the same cities twice outside North America. But we will defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to visit Barcelona.

We stayed at this hotel at the end of May as a group of 6. First impressions are always important and Villa Emilia did not dis-appoint. A lovely reception area, bar and roof terrace!
The rooms are spacious, very comfy beds, a safe (always a bonus) and a modern bathroom (with a hairdryer). We had a view overlooking the crossroads and the road noise at all times was minimal.
The continental breakfast was really tasty and excellent coffees were freely delivered. In our party we had two coeliacs (gluten free) and the hotel were very accommodating. We had a call the day before our arrival to ask what we would like for breakfast and were supplied with a variety of gluten free goodies each morning.
The location of the hotel is ideal! Far enough away to get some peace, but equally, within walking distance of the key places and a short walk from the Metro station.
Finally, the staff were all extremely friendly and very attentive! Nothing was too much trouble.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and can't wait to return!

We stayed here for 3 nights recently and are overall pleased with our stay. The hotel is in a great location for touring the city, 1 block away from subway, waling distance to many sights. The staff was always pleasant, helpful...just excellent. The hotel is charming and clean. Room was a bit noisy at night up to about 11:00 PM, as we could hear every door on our floor open/close. Room is small, but not atypical for a European hotel. Bathroom was just fine. The terrace on the 7th floor was really nice place to hangout before venturing out for dinner. We also ate breakfast there a couple of morning and it was quite a delicious, typical Euro style breakfast buffet.

Would we stay here again? Absolutely!

We just got back from 3 nights at Villa Emilia. We chose it because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor and because of the relatively reasonable price. What a great choice! The hotel is beautifully designed, with wonderful attention to every detail. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Very nice bar in the entrance floor and rooftop bar (generous bartenders doll out great portions of drinks!). The location is not in the touristic center but its a very nice neighborhood, close to a lot of places. The only grips are the shower which goes too hot every once in a while (the staff are aware and taking care of it).
Thanks

I have been here now three times, it is still great: staff super friendly, unique roof top terrace for a drink or a quiet read, best breakfast in town and well equipped rooms. Fast wifi and decent working space in room. Price/value very good! I will be back!
