A true boutique hotel

Pros: The proximity to everything the visitor to Barcelona would want - La Rambla , Marina, lovely shops and endless bars and tapas bars.
Cons: I can't think of anything that would improve the visitor experience.
Location: Excellent. I was visiting Barcelona for the first time and I was a female alone. I walked to La Pedrera and La Rambla. The metro and buses are near
It was very easy to find this hotel as it is a couple of minutes walk from Metro station Rocafort. Upon arrival I was checked in very swiftly to my lovely room on the sixth floor. I was given a voucher for a free drink and snack in the bar - very nice touch. The room, bistro and bar area were exactly as in the pictures on line with lovely candles burning. The room was fantastic with a very large bed, desk and chair and comfy chair too. A very practical and contemporary wooden floor with beautiful rug throughout the room was fab! The bathroom was also very contemporary with lovely soaps and toiletries (which were changed from small tubes to larger tubes on the first full day - probably as I was staying 3 nights). The bar was lovely and buzzy in the evenings with bowls of nuts served with all drinks. On a couple of evenings there was excellent live entertainment. I did not have a meal in the hotel but the bistro was very inviting and always busy with locals and visitors alike - very good sign. If anything the roof terrace was even better than the pictures online. As it was December when I visited, the terrace was open but not the bar - there is an intercom system to call for drinks and lovely cosy duvets to wrap around oneself to keep out the chilly night air. Overall an absolutely wonderful stay - I will definitely be back.

We travelled for my wife's 40th birthday and the hotel was perfect. It wasn't too expensive to eat or drink and the breakfast which we paid for in advance was just what you needed before heading out for a days sightseeing. The location is spot on in a quiet neighbourhood but with access to the metro only 50 meters away from the hotel you have the city at your finger tips without the hustle and Bustle of the centre. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Mr Lee, Thank you for your review of your recent stay at Villa Emilia, We are delighted you had a wonderful stay at our four star boutique hotel for your special celebration. It is kind of you to compliment the quality of our breakfast. We are glad you enjoyed the food at Villa Emilia Bistrot and Villa Emilia la Terrassa. It is rewarding that you considered the food to be good value. We appreciate your positive feedback about our tranquil yet central location in the elegant neighbourhood of Eixample at the heart of the city. It is satisfying that you found it very convenient having Rocafort L1 Metro station on the doorstep, just three stops away from Plaça Catalunya. Your high rating for service, room comfort and cleanliness is thankfully received. Thank you for letting us know you will return. Your loyalty is greatly valued. The whole team look forward to welcoming you back in the future. My best regards,

excellent experience

Pros: Quiet, civilised, convenient, yet away from the crowds. Attentive staff. Very clean. Handy for Place de Espagna.
Cons: Could find no fault with the hotel or service. A kettle in the room would be a useful amenity.
Location: 20 minutes walk to Cataluna. Rockafort metro station is at the bottom of the street and with a T10 ticket it works out at 1 Euro per journey.
The hotel is well situated in a quiet area, and a metro station at the end of the street. Plenty of restaurants and small shops in the surrounding streets. You can easily walk to Universitat for more action. Buffet breakfast is good and starts at 7.30 so that you can hit the town while it is still cool. There is a bar on the roof terrace if you prefer to relax on the premises. The staff are attentive and the rooms are very clean. Barcelona is buzzing with lots to see - Gaudi and Miro were 'musts' for us and we made use of the beach for catching breath.

Superb break

We stayed for a 4 night break after choosing the Villa Emilia through e-bookers.com. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful from arrival to departure . The hotel has a calm chic atmosphere and the rooms are suitably appointed. The area is fairly quiet but close the one of the main thoroughfares to take you to the main areas of interest. Handy for the bus and metro . All in all we can't recommend the hotel highly enough. Slight negative point was lack of drink making facilities in the room although this isn't enough to be a deal breaker.

Beautiful 3 day Barcelona break!

Villa Emilia was a perfect place for our stay. The staff at the hotel were so helpful & friendly, events before we arrived! I emailed to check some details & they responded quickly, with all the info I needed, & more! The hotel is beautiful. Luxurious, spacious & quiet, open rooms with aircon & the best showers I have had abroad! Everything was 1st class. We were on a 3day break (couple, early 30's). The rooftop terrace bar is amazing!!! Especially at night. & the location is perfect, only 2min walk to main metro line. 10mins metro to reach most of barcelona, although we walked most of it (& the big comfy bed in our room was a much needed retreat to rest!!) The ambience at villa emilia is very relaxing, you feel right at home. I would recommend the hotel to anyone & I will stay again next time we visit this beautiful city! Thankyou so much for our wonderful holiday!

Friendly, quiet, very well presented hotel

The staff at this hotel are great; very enthusiastic and helpful. The place is extremely well furnished and presented and feels a lot more homely than most faceless city hotels. Location is a little away from city centre but this means it is very quiet and it's really very easy to get into town either on the metro [three stops from station at end of street] or on foot [about 25 mins walk]. And it's only 10 mins walk from Plaza Espana where you can get the airport buses to/from. Free afternoon coffee and pastries from 5pm-7pm are a nice touch. We also ate in the restaurant every night; it's a fairly limited tapas-orientated menu but all good stuff and decent value. I was in Barcelona for the marathon and they also laid on a special pasta menu the previous evening plus an early breakfast at 6:30 for the runners. My only suggestions to make the hotel perfect would be complementary tea/coffee making facilities either in the room or in the lobby or some other communal location. I also found the beds slightly on the firm side, but that's a personal thing. Overall though, I'd definitely recommend this hotel.
