Nice hotel

Posted Apr 13, 2017
Cons: Get rid of that smell
This hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff were helpful and spoke English. There was not a good smell in our room when we arrived but they changed us to another room without fuss. It's about a 30 minute walk to the old town, and plenty of tapas on the way if you want to avoid the main street. Barcelona is a wonderful city to walk around and this hotel was a comfortable end to every day

Great hotel in every way...

Posted Mar 28, 2017
Pros: Friendly staff team
Cons: Nothing I can think of
We spent three nights staying at Hotel Vilamari and were extremely pleased with all aspects of the hotel. It is conveniently located a 15 minute walk to the centre, is a few minutes walk to two Metro stations, which incidentally are very easy to navigate around and very reasonable in cost too. The area is nice and quiet without being isolated so we got a good nights sleep away from the noise and bustle of the more central part of the city which as previously mentioned is still very close by. The hotel was very clean and comfortable and stylishly decorated and furnished with a relaxing atmosphere. We booked a 'Standard Room' which was very nice and clean and comfortable. All of the staff we met were absolutely lovely, very friendly and helpful and some of the nicest hotel staff we have met on our travels. I would highly recommend booking this hotel and would certainly return here when we come back to visit this beautiful city. Thank you Hotel Vilamari team for helping make our long weekend staying with you an exceptionally enjoyable trip.

Dear Michael & Neil, First of all thank you for your stay in our hotel. We really appreciate your exceptional comments concerning Hotel Vilamarí. As you said, we are in a privileged area for the proximity to the city center, the communications with public transport and at the same time, for the tranquility of the area. We ever try to take care of all the details, of course, starting with cleaning, decoration and finnishing with little details as free water into minibar. Our staff would like to thank you for your kind words and, please, feel welcome if you comeback Barcelona. We will be happy to welcome you again. Best wishes from Hotel Vilamarí,

Nice neighborhood; good enough hotel

Posted Mar 24, 2017
Pros: The neighborhood is great! I could live there. Arena shopping mall by the Plaza Espana. Tons of inexpensive corner restaurants and bars. Laundromat.
Cons: Cooling control really wasn't that bad, but it could be better.
Location: Short walk to metro and it's an easy system to use so all Barcelona is at your beck & call. Local bars and cafes fit any budget, even upscale.
It would be a five, except the room is very small and the A/C seemed only to "work" if the window was open.

Excellent location, cheap/old rooms

Posted Jan 6, 2017
Pros: Location, stuff.
Cons: The rooms and the what comes in them.
Location: Plaza de toros de las Arenas, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, Avinguda del Paral·lel, Palau Nacional, Avinguda de la Reina Maria Cristina, Metro
The hotel has an awesome location, very close to the Plaça d'Espanya with the main tourist attractions at the door step, a subway (Metro) station nearby and one of the two stops for the Barcelona Airport bus shuttle - Aerobus. The stuff is very professional, enthusiastic and friendly. Now about the not so good. The rooms although clean are very outdated and look like being maintained on the last dime. There are no slippers or bathrobes. For those coming from the tea drinking nations I have to warn you that there are no tea/coffee sets. That would've been O.K. on it' own (although totally bizarre for a hotel that promotes itself as a 4-star hotel) if not for the fact that during the complementary breakfast at the hotel the hot liquids are poured into the cups with a volume of four table spoons. I realize that Barcelona is located in the warm climate and it's more custom here to drink cold drinks but if you like your tea/coffee the North American style you will be hard to pres to find any place which serves it like that. Also the glass screen in the shower wasn't sealed half way so when taking a shower there was a puddle of water in the washroom half the size of the Olympic pool. Now if you don't care about the cleaning stuff and a possible rain in the room under you you could leave it like that but I had to use one of the towels just to soak it all in. Needless to say, by the time we were returning from our daily excursions the room was clean.

Dear Mr. Dimitry, Thank you very much for your kind words regarding our staff as well as our fantastic location. We are happy about your good rating.

Very central and convenient for the metro

Posted Dec 12, 2016
Very central and convenient for the metro. Just down the road, about 300 yards, is the Barcelona arena with loads of shops and good restaurants on the roof. We didn't have the hotel breakfast but made do with coffee and croissants from the many little cafes in the area. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, spoke excellent English which helps with my Spanish being restricted to "Cervaza"! They looked after our bags for us on the last day and let us check in early as the room was already ready. A nice touch was the 4 bottles of water in the fridge every day. The room was basic but very clean and was just what we wanted. I'd go to this hotel again.

Good value for money hotel.

Posted Nov 28, 2016 on Hotels
Nice comfortable hotel. Smallish but well-appointed, clean rooms. Friendly staff and in a great location for the fountains and art museum at Placa Espanya. Only slight gripe is that the rooms were a bit too warm and the air conditioning didn't seem to cool them much (but there was a window that opened out fully so we used this to cool the room).

Ideally located, fantastic hotel

Posted Nov 17, 2016
Pros: Staff, cleanliness, location and price
This was ideally located, not in the very centre but only a five minute walk to the nearest metro and shopping centre (old bull ring). The hotel itself was lovely, staff were so helpful, day and night, and would never let you walk past without a quick hello and goodbye. the services at the hotel were great, i only wish we had more time to utilise them. We would definitely stay here again.
