A beautifully elegant yet 'cool' hotel with perpetually happy and helpful staff. My partner speaks a little Spanish, but all the staff spoke English fluently so he didn't get the chance to try. The bed was comfortable with plenty of room around it, the bathroom was huge and everything was spotlessly clean and appeared to have been newly decorated just for us!
We particularly enjoyed the complimentary early evening coffee & pastries on the mezzanine as a welcome pause between sightseeing and finding dinner. And the proximity of the Metro stop, just a few paces from the door, was ideal.
I never did find out what the delicious scent in the lobby, corridors and lifts was, but it became our 'homecoming' ritual to breathe it in and relax as we entered our hotel!
And do take the time to sit back and listen to the pianist of an evening if he is still there - the drinks are a bit pricey but the ambience makes them worth it.
We would both definitely return to the Villa Emilia if we visited Barcelona again.
