Great modern hotel -Posted Jun 9, 2014
Beautiful hotel- Clean, Modern efficient Beds, like all over Spain, very very hard. However staff were able to place some cushioning when requested to do so. All chairs in lobby, bar and restaurant very low, awkward to get up from. But they look marvelous!

Excellent hotelPosted Jun 1, 2014
Pros: Helpful staff. Cleanliness. Decor. Comfort. Rooftop terrace.
Cons: Tea and coffee making facilities in rooms.
Just returned from 4 day break in Barcelona. Weather was not the best but hotel was excellent. All staff were very polite and helpful at all times. Hotel is a little further out in terms of walking to Rambla, Port, La Sagrada Familia but Metro is easy to use and less than a minute away.

Good hotel for exploring BarcelonaPosted May 23, 2014
Hotel Villa Emilia offers the tourist a very comfortable base to explore all of the best things Barcelona has to offer. It is close enough to walk or hop on the Metro to see the Gaudi sights, museums and the most interesting areas of the city.

Nice hotel just for stayPosted May 17, 2014
We stayed in villa Emilia from the rave reviews it got from TripAdvisor. The hotel room is excellent. Clean, nice and modern. 5 stars for cleanliness. However, they don't provide bottled water for their guests. It is chargeable. Neither do they provide a kettle for boiling water. Breakfast is also chargeable at eur15 per person. The lifts to the hotel room are quite slow and we had this experience where there was a big group of people who just checked in and were waiting at the lift. We had to wait a long time for the lift to ferry them up then come back down. Aside from that, this hotel is located near Rochafort metro station. It is one stop away from espanyol station where you can find the old bull fighting stadium which is now converted to a shopping mall. Hence, location is great if you prefer an enclosed shopping environment vs passieg De gracia, which is very open and you have to walk to many blocks just to get to one store. Overall I felt that the hotel stay was good due to the proximity to the metro and excellent room condition. What I felt was a letdown was the lack of customer experience. The service staff felt cold. If you just want a nice hotel to sleep in, I would still recommend villa Emilia. Just don't expect any service or water from them. Everything here is chargeable.

Nice Hotel-Not For UsPosted May 14, 2014
Pros: The cleanliness of the hotel in general and the rooms.
Cons: The attitude of the front desk women. The two guys were quite the opposite. They were very coutreous, friendly and helpful.
Location: If you're planning on spending a lot of time in your hotel and around the immediate area, this hotel is fine. There are nice cafes in the area.
We booked this hotel based on the good reviews, the website and the good price. We travel quite frequently, so I am basing my comments on similar hotels. We spent 5 nights the last week of April. At registration, it was brought to our attention that we booked through Expedia instead of the hotel, and therefore, were not entitled to some of the perks. We've encountered this negative reaction at other hotels, and will remember this when making future bookings. The room was lovely with a nice bathroom. The hotel was clean and modern.The location was far from the main tourist sites. We were led to believe the hotel would be more centrally located. We like to walk but this was much further than we expected. After discovering that we needed to download tickets to the Sagrada Familia, I asked the ladies at the front desk for help. Theirs is the only printer in the hotel. This was at night when no one else was around. They said they were too busy. We found them aloof, unfriendly and put out. If you are coming to Barcelona to enjoy the major sites and a friendly staff, this is not the hotel for you.

A modern, comfortable, clean hotelPosted May 12, 2014
Pros: The staff were friendly and very helpful, the food excellent and good value for money and there was wonderful live jazz music on two nights.
Cons: Can't think of anything particularly we felt could be improved.
Location: The hotel is very near metro station Rocafort. It only takes 5 minutes to get to the city centre. There are bars, ice creams, restaurants etc nearby
Hotel Villa Emilia was prefect for us. It is an ideal location just outside the centre . The facilites are modern and clean, the staff are amazing. We had two evening meals at the hotel which was ecellent quality and good value at 25 euros for 3 courses. Also it was lovely to finish our bottle of Cava on the rooftop terrace. We got around the city using the metro which is very quick, cheap and user friendly. It's best to pre-book the busy tourist attractions (Sagrada Familia, Gaudi houses etc) which we did via the Tourist Information Office in Placa Catalunya and also using the hotel's free internet. We hope to come back to Barcelona and would definitely stay at Hotel Villa Emilia again.
