Excellent price-quality ratio. Very cozy rooms, nice location, great ambiance, friendly service. Was surprised it was just a 4-star.

Amazing all-you-can-eat lunch buffet with meat and champagne for a very reasonable price. Was surprised that there was live music at lunch during the week!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for such an amazing review.

We are pleased to know that you had a wonderful holiday during your stay at Villa Emilia Bistrot, a 4-star boutique hotel! Thank you for your compliments on our boutique style decor and the restaurant.

It's humbling to know that you consider us 'one of the best' and we were able to create such an impression on you.

We are glad you enjoyed the exquisite bistro cuisine. We take pride in both exterior and interior decor of our hotel. Above all that, we put our guest's comfort first. We aim to provide affordable packages and provide the best amenities to all our guests.

Also, our terrace is one of the areas most valued for having different activities such as Live music, the BBQ menu at Villa Emilia La Terrassa.

We are so happy that you were able to experience, enjoy and be part of it.

We are looking forward to welcoming you again for another memorable stay.

All the best!

I really enjoyed my two-night stay in this lovely, boutique hotel. The staff were friendly and personable so it was immediately a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. The rooms were tidy and a nice and cosy size; the baths were also very clean too.

The common areas of this hotel are very cosy and comfortable- the lobby has a nice seating area with a bar etc. Although I didn’t go to the terrace, they served tea and coffee between 5-7pm.

The only negative was that the weekend we were there, it was unusually hot and because of the season, the hotel had the winter settings on the AC which meant that it couldn’t go below a certain temperature. This meant that it was hot in the room (for me) at night and we weren’t able to change it. Nevertheless, when I told the member of staff at the desk he suggested alternatives and proposed that if these didn’t help he would try and sort something out for us.

Overall, it’s a lovely hotel and I would definitely recommend this to everyone, but especially couples.

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.

Room Tip: Purchase a T10 metro transportation pass, good for 10 metro subway, city bus trips!

Dear Victoria, Thank you for such an amazing review.
We are so pleased to know that you had a wonderful holiday during your stay at Villa Emilia, located close to the historical center of Barcelona. It is indeed one of the peaceful areas in the city. We do take pride in our hotel's interior and exterior decor designed with the combination of elegance, tradition, art and modern features. We are happy to know that you enjoyed the complimentary drinks and sweets. As you mentioned, we are indeed located in one of the best places in the city. Most of the tourist spots are very close to the hotel. We hope you were able to visit Plaça Catalunya and the Ramblas, as well as Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, accessible by foot. We aim to provide our guests with spotless, attractive and spacious rooms with all the amenities. Thank you for the great tip on the transportation. We appreciate it.
We are looking forward to welcoming you again. All the best and Happy Holidays.

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.

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.
