"Sadly, not a great experience."
I would love to give this hotel an excellent rating, but I am stretching it giving it a very good rating. The staff is fantastic. David at the front desk was so personable and accommodating, but he could not turn the heat off! The entire hotel is centrally heated or air conditioned We had it turned off and the heat in the room was still unbearable! We opened the window while we slept and the noise from the street made sleeping impossible. The party revelers and street traffic were echoed by the surrounding buildings. Very disappointing because the hotel is ideally located and charming.
"Fabulous stay at Villa Emilia"
We loved our 3-night stay at Villa Emilia! Our flight to Barcelona was delayed and we didn't arrive at the hotel until 2 am, but everything still went extremely smoothly. We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel and it was about 25 Euro, which I believe is cheaper than the usual taxi cost (30-35 Euro) due to the lack of traffic since it was so late at night. Checking in went smoothly and the concierge was very friendly. We didn't have breakfast included with the price of our room, and although I'm sure it is delicious, it costs 14 Euro, so we opted to simply walk out each morning and find inexpensive pastries and coffee at the bakeries nearby. The location of the hotel is perfect since it is very close to the metro station. We prefer to walk, so we decided to walk to La Rambla to eat and found that the walk was quite enjoyable and it took us about 15 minutes. The walk to the beautiful Plaça d'Espanya is about 10 minutes away. We also walked back to the hotel each night and found the walk very safe. The hotel is in a very clean and safe location. The room itself is modern and clean. We found the beds to be quite comfortable and loved that the room was quiet. Amenities include body wash and shampoo, so ladies, make sure to bring your conditioner! I read that taking the public shuttle bus to and from the airport is quite inexpensive and easy, but we opted to take a taxi back to the airport. The front desk called one for us and it arrived in 5 minutes and luckily, the ride costed under 30 Euro once again. All in all, our stay was lovely and relaxing and we would gladly book Villa Emilia should we ever visit Barcelona again.
We stayed here for five days and were treated with the nicest and most genuine hospitality. We arrived in time for their tenth anniversary and were invited to their party. We expected nothing. We were wrong!!!The best of Rioja and Cava endlessly poured along with fabulous food. Brilliant Catalan company also!!!!! Highly recommend.
Wonderful hotel, fantastic decor, superb food and the staff were extremely helpful. The rooms were spotless as well and always done perfectly. Perhaps a little warm at times though. Would go back in a heartbeat! 10/10
"Excellent hotel - great staff"
Stayed at the hotel in October when meeting family for a birthday night out. The staff were excellent and friendly upon check in, room was spotless and a good size. Bed was comfy - Hotel has a roof top bar which we got a free glass of wine in for booking through the hotel direct. 2 min walk to a sub way station which is a great way to travel around. We walked to La Rambla a few times it took approx 20 mins - nice walk on a main road
