"Hotel Villa Emilia Ambiance!"
Hotel Villa Emilia had Ambiance, Ambiance, Ambiance! Beautiful hotel, clean and classy! Rooms were comfortable and inviting! Free coffee, tea and sweets offered on the mezzanine floor, a lounge bar on the top floor with views and 1 free cocktail in the bar next to the grand piano where musicians played jazz music. Located near the old bull ring now turned into a mall, food court, grocery store, movie theater and upscale restaurants with views of the city on the very top floors. Subway & city bus easily accessed on Rockefort steps from hotel.
"Great Staff, Lovely Hotel"
We chose this hotel as it was one of the nearest within walking distance of the Palau Sant Jordi concert hall. Should you be going to a concert then I would say this is a great option as it's only half an hour walk via the Placa Espana and then up several sets of escalators,all very easy. For other tourism it's 100 yards from the Rocafort metro station or 20 minute walk to the Placa de Catalunya. The Hotel's website doesn't convey how above average this hotel is, It's stylish in a very relaxed way and this ethos applies to the staff who are fantastic. The zinc bar is very mellow and open until 1am, The buffet breakfast runs from 7am to 11am during the week and extends to 11.30am at weekends, there was a great choice of cold meats, smoked salmon, tortilla, pastries and fruit. The hotel has a restaurant which was also very good and finally the room was clean, nicely appointed apart from lacking a full length mirror. Would highly recommend.
"Nice boutique Hotel"
Rooms are good and comfortable, amenities in the room can be upgraded, like having wash-cloth (we went to the market and get sponge) more soap and shower cap. But really clean, nice people at front desk, bar and all the employees are great. Great location with access to public transportation, close to plaza espana and a lots of restaurants and bars around. Quite and safe neighborhood, has a bar in the lobby really nice for drink and have conversation with music and great prices. We spent 9 days and we really enjoy it, fast ckeck in and check out, everything was ready for us when we arrive after a long trip from USA.
"A really nice hotel"
A few days trip to Barcelona in November. Stayed in this lovely hotel a few metro stops away from the city centre. The room was tidy and beautiful with a bath tub. The hotel has a nice restaurant/lobby with live music in the evenings. The breakfast was great quality. Extra plus for the complimentary afternoon tea and the glasses of wine with tapas. Would warmly recommend.
We ended up having to stay in Barcelona unexpectedly. I looked on TA and found this hotel and for some reason it was very reasonably priced. Booked right away and arrived a few hours later. !Magnifico! As noted elsewhere, great vib, nice smell, quirky but fascinating decor, welcoming staff, cozy comfy QUIET room, lovely breakfast buffet. Can't wait to return.
