"It's the tops in every way."
• This modern hotel in central Barcelona is the tops. All the staff are highly professional and helpful; nothing is too much trouble and they do things fast. • Blissfully comfortable big bedroom on the 3rd floor. Also, we could open the French windows a decent amount – we always like to sleep with open windows. Lovely bathroom too, with bath & shower taps that you don't have to be a rocket scientist to operate bleary-eyed first thing in the morning, and you can run the water as hot as you like. Each day we came back to immaculately cleaned, replenished and tidied bedroom & bathroom. • Good selection at breakfast to help yourself to, including proper fresh orange juice. (To have a boiled egg, you put it onto a wired spoon into simmering water that holds up to 6 of them, for the time you'd like it – 5 mins for mine, 10 mins for companion's). • The two lifts were ultrafast - we didn't ever have to wait for more than 5-10 seconds. • The icing on the cake is the glorious rooftop terrace, where we enjoyed drinks & tapas on their comfy sofas & chairs, served by very charming barmen – Hermes stands out, who we chatted to on our last night. (Thank you, Hermes, for being lovely!) And on the rooftop terrace I could have a cigarette and my boyfriend his pipe – a very important plus to bear in mind if you smoke nowadays. • Just as we'd checked out after our four-day stay, and were sitting at one of their pavement tables outside waiting for our taxi, a member of staff (maybe the manager) dashed out to warn us not to put any small baggage on the pavement, because of the danger of someone nicking it quickly. It's that sort of touch – feeling looked after by them, even though they'd already been paid and could well just focus on their next customers – that distinguishes a great hotel from a mediocre one. Thank you, all at Villa Emilia, for welcoming us and looking after us superbly and hospitably. X
"Hotel. Of Destinction"
Beautiful hotel. Great front desk with English speaking personal. Rooms are extremely clean and updated. Fine linens and quiet rooms. Bathrooms provide everything you need. Great location and walking distance to all the great tourist sites. Metro just a block away. Main train station just 15 minutes away. Beautiful lobby bar but hard to get waited on. Very cool rooftop bar but open only for special barbaque special when we were there. Location and rooms makeup for short comings.
"clean, convenient, comfortable"
Great little boutique hotel, 1 block from metro (which is super easy to use) with quick access to everything. Great little rooftop bar to unwind with a drink at the end of the day. The only minor point was there wasn't an abundance of good restaurants nearby (i.e. within a 5 minute walking radius)
"Wonderful boutique hotel in Barcelona"
Villa Emilia is situated in a part of Barcelona that is mainly locals and thus the restaurants and the shops are full of Barcelonians going about their daily business. The hotel facilities are great, with the Zinc Bar upstairs being a highlight. Good access to public transport and taxis. The service staff were very very friendly and very helpful, and we had a couple of jokes with them about not being able to speak Spanish. You are still walking distance from some of the highlights of Barcelona, but not surrounded by tourists when you walk out the door. This hotel is definitely worth checking out as an alternative to more centrally located hotels.
"Great rooftop terrace, great staff"
In a residential area with multiple restaurants within a couple blocks, only a block from the Rocafort metro stop so very easy to get around. Staff very pleasant. Nice breakfast buffet, lots of options, and one can order an omelette or eggs. Quiet and clean. Nice bath and room. We discovered that we were only a few blocks from the airport bus stop as well so on our way back to airport we just rolled our bags to the bus stop. Highly recommended.
