Stayed here from 13TH to 16th August. Gorgeous trendy boutique hotel. The hotel even smells lovely. Love the lighted candles in the evening. Our room and bathroom were great. Very big double bed. Slept really well but barcelona is very tiring. Didn't really use the hotel for anything other than shower, change and to sleep. Didn't book the 13 euro each per day breakfast as I knew we would find somewhere where we could just get a little something and a coffee which we did just straight up the road on the corner on the left found a really fab little cafe bar called la petite Paris where we had breakfast for 10 euros for both of us!!! All freshly made we had dinner also one evening. Use the metro to get around really easily. Rochford station 2 min walk down street. Love barcelona, added bonus of beach. Only disappointment for us was it poured down when we went to see the fountains which are on the place d espanya 10 min walk away. Hopefully return next year in the spring

A very stylish boutique hotel, away from the hectic atmosphere of Las Ramblas - but still close enough to it to enjoy the sights, shopping and dining offerings of Las Ramblas vicinity. Also, the metro just around the corner to it is ideal.

The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. Comfortable and clean beddings. We had 3 suitcases (2 medium + 1 large) and they fitted comfortably in the space and didn't cramp us even though we were 2 adults and 1 child in the room.

The amenities are good quality spa products. They have a nice body scrub and scented body lotions. A decent hair-dryer that actually lets you style your hair nicely, not like those that heats like a public toilet hand-dryer. The bathrooms are well stocked up with fluffy towels and the items are arranged nicely.

The entire hotel décor is stylish and modern and quirky and interesting.

Management puts on different event themes in the lounge.

Staff - Reception, management were all always attentive, courteous, friendly and informative.

Reasons why I gave it an AVERAGE rating:

Breakfast: The breakfast buffet offering is limited, unappetizing and appears of poor value. You boil your own egg too.
If you order a la carte; it's over priced. Croissants and pastries are mini-size and coffee sub-standard. For 3 small croissants, 2 coffees and 1 hot chocolate milk - cost us approx. 28euros.
Plus they sit you at a table where there are no place settings but bare cold, black tables with poor lighting and the service treatment is as if you are a 3rd class citizen for snobbing their pitiful breakfast buffet. They gave us our food without any cutleries or napkins - until we had to ask a waiter and he shuffled off huffing and puffing.

You'll get better quality, fresh and honest to goodness delicious breakfast two blocks down towards Las Ramblas for half the price and the staff are attentive and friendly like a local village café :)

Distance: Although approx 20min walk to Las Ramblas - it's still one of those things that's annoying when you're tired, and sweaty from the heat and you just want to drop off your shopping, take a quick siesta and go back out again...
Also we got tired of being among the throngs of tourist everywhere we turn.

Room Tip:
Choose one away from the supply closet. Because at 6-6.30am the housekeeping staff create a lot of noise - banging, clanking away.

Room Tip: Choose one away from the supply closet. We had Room 39, at 6.30am the housekeeping staff create a lot of noise.

Super boutique hotel, mainly couples stay here. Very comfortable rooms, breakfast usually included, is more than enough for anyone's appetite. Within a short walking distance of the centre of Barcelona, this hotel is in a quiet square and near to some excellent restaurants. We shall be staying at the Villa Emilia whenever we visit Barcelona.

From start to finish on a 3 night stay in August 2015, the staff could not have been more helpful, and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. The hotel itself was exceptionally clean, and the room was spacious enough for 2 people, although the wardrobe hanging space was small. Shower room was also nice. We ate there on 2 nights and found the restaurant meal was absolutely fabulous for the price 21 euros - top marks to the chef! We also tried their BBQ night at 26 euros up on the very pleasant roof terrace, but by comparison thought the restaurant meal was far and away the better choice. Breakfast was plentiful, and again the staff were attentive, polite and most helpful. Mostly we found English was well understood by staff. The location is slightly off the beaten track, but within 20 minutes walk you can be at Playa de Catalunya, and the metro is near although we didn't use it. Overall we had an extremely positive experience staying here and would highly recommend it without hesitation.

Room Tip: We were on the fourth floor overlooking the crossroads at the front of the hotel, and it wasn't at all noisy .
