Very close to metro station, so it was is easy to travel around Barcelona. The breakfast was excellent: fresh orange juice, different coffees, cava, different breads, hams, cheeses etc.

We had our room in the first floor. The room itself was nice and clean but the voices from the lobby bar disturbed a bit. One night (Sat-Sun) I woke up several times from noise coming from the street (?). The beds are rather hard but otherwise OK. The pictures at the hotel web-page describe the hotel rather well (no tricks :)).

Friendly and helpful staff. The technical problems with the safe were solved exactly the way they should have been solved. Nice work from the reception and the maintenance.

Room Tip: Ask a room from upper floors (not the 1st floor). In the first floor the noice from the lobby bar may disturb you.

Our first time in Barcelona and the research we did on this hotel was confirmed immediately on our arrival. Beautifully scented air, clean and contemporary design and staff who bent over backwards to put the meaning in "hospitality." We arrived early (10 am) after a 10 hr flight from ATL and jet-lagged out of our minds...but the VE staff went out of their way to get us in a room ASAP....and a great room it was: 55. It was right at the elevator, but with the heavy door, there was no guest-transit or elevator noise that disturbed us during the entire stay. It was over the street, but the heavy glazed windows (two of which opened as doors!) kept all but the most excessive of noise out. The bathroom had a tub, but as mentioned elsewhere, only half of the shower area was glassed...I imagine that the shower-only rooms have the potential for a lot of water on the floor...BUT, merely turn the shower head towards the wall while soaping up and that problem mostly goes away.
Showered, changed and down to the restaurant to sample their "Formula" three-course lunch (the "big" meal in Spain/Catalonia) for 18 Euros. Lunch and a couple of glasses of CAVA later, we were oriented again and ready to go.
We think the 10 E breakfast deal was well worth it, in terms of quality AND convenience...the breakfast is usuall 14E, but if you sign up at check-in, it is 10E per person, per day. Believe me, after a day and night of walking, sightseeing, tapas-ing, cava-ing and generally "groovin' with the ambience," it's nice to just walk downstairs the next morning, say 'cincuenta y cinco" (room number) to Paulo, and chow down on a range of fresh fruits, jamon iberico (eat as much of this ham as you can...it makes prosciutto look like Jimmy Dean, and you can't take any back with you!), sausages, pastries, yogurt, cereals (including muesli), cheeses, a "boil-it-your-way" egg station with beautiful free-range eggs, breads and more. Oh, and drinks...fresh squeezed OJ, Mango nectar, and others. Good, dark Spanish coffee with hot milk is ready to go, or you can have an espresso, capuccino or HOT CHOCOLATE custom made for you on request. Cava, still white and red wine are also on stand-by if you need a little "bracer" to get the day crankin'. Yeah...this beats the neighborhood eateries unless you really have to go on the cheap.
The only downside of this hotel is its location. It is in a residential neighborhood with a limited selection of suitable restaurants, bars or brasseries, or shopping if you're into that. You really have to take the METRO down to the GRACIAS area near the Placa Catalunya or to Ramblas or Bario Gotico or Barceloneta Beach to get the best of what Barcelona has to offer for food, drink and fun. That said, the ROCAFORT metro station (on Line 1) is a mere block from the hotel entrance...and it will take you anywhere via Line 1 or transfers to any of the other 4 main lines at numerous transfer points. Be careful to not spend too much time in the METRO, though, and take the buses, too, as your T-10 METRO card is good on them too. GO AHEAD AND BUY THE T-10 METRO CARD! It is good for 10 rides, and can be used by multiple people...I would run it through the turnstile, pull it out, and hand it to my wife to use next as I passed through....easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy, eh? You can charge it, or cash it....around 9.5 E...cheap!
Pay attention to the big maps on the walls...the white part of the line tells you where the train on that side of that station HAS BEEN, and the read tells you where it is going to GO. That way, you will go to the proper side and get the train you want and go to where you want to go.
TO AVOID THE LONG LINES AT MANY ATTRACTIONS...there are two bank "SERVI CAXIAs" (pron. "servee cashas")right across the steets from the hotel. You can get cash AND TICKETS to many attractions...Sagrada Familia being most notable. We got our SF tickets at the servi caxia and DID NOT HAVE TO STAND IN LINE FOR A SECOND on arrival there, even though there was a 2-block long line of people waiting...tickets from the SERVI CAXIA are considered "on-line tickets" and there is never a line at that entrance! The people in queue are waiting for TICKETS, not entry! So, get your tickets at the SERVI CAXIA...look for the tab at the top of the touch-screen that says "tickets" or "attractions" or the like. (oh, and once you put your atm/debit card in, you get to pick your language, so no worries there) and avoid a lot of wasted queue time.
Finally, don't forget to go "...up on the rooooffff" at Villa Emilia. It is a great terrace that overlooks the neighborhood and on up to Tibidabo Mt, I believe, down one street. There is a bar up there that is staffed during high season. BUT, if it is not staffed while you are there, there is an intercom to the Restaurant, and they will bring you up drinks, tapasitas, and more in minutes (if it's not too busy downstairs...we never had to wait more than a couple of minutes, though.) Th-Sun, there is music in the main bar downstairs in the evening, and that was a wonderful thing to come back to either to close the day, or to segue into a new part of the day.
On a non-hotel-review note...these people get TWO days out each day with their meal and activity scheduling. Awake early and have a breakfast...go out and about working and/or playing...around 2-3, have a BIG meal for lunch, with a little cava, of course...after, take a little walk and a short nappeee...awake to your "second day" and work/play some more...around 7/8-ish or so, start snacking on tapas and such...and, if you are hardy enough and don't have to get up TOO early, around midnite, hit the CLOOBZ and dance the night away.

The hotel was excellent. We do not know Barcelona well enough to know how the hotel's location compares to other hotels' but we found it very convenient with the metro only one short block away and an elevator entrance to the metro two blocks away. The rooms were clean and modern (strange but there was no clock in the room and the free wifi was not always as good as it should have been) and well maintained. The staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat, making reservations for us and getting cabs at the requested times. Since the weather was fine we were able to use the rooftop bar on a number of occasions. The breakfast (14 euros 'on demand' but 10 euros/day if you book it for the length of your stay) had all the usual items one expects including real, fresh orange juice, breads, meats, cheeses, fruit, boiled eggs, etc. We ate dinner at the hotel one night and the food was quite good (the menu was a bit limited but we all found something to eat). The bar, which has entertainment on weekends was well attended and very reasonably priced. My wife loved the hotel's decor and we all felt extremely comfortable there.

I would certainly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Barcelona.

From the minute we entered the Reception of Villa Emelia we were impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of all the staff and management, as well as the beautiful fragrance of the public areas! Our room was very clean and well furnished. The added bonus in the bathroom was a bath and it was wonderful to be able to soak in it after a long day sightseeing! The breakfast was beautifully presented, the food constantly replenished and nothing was too much trouble for the busy restaurant and bar staff.
We loved the complementary tea, coffee and pastries that were served every day between 5 and 7 pm. The rooftop terrace is a good place but unfortunately, the weather during our stay was a little unsettled!!
We thoroughly recommend this Hotel for its facilities and easy access to the city centre via the Metro which is only 2 minutes walk from the Hotel.( only 3 stops to the beginning of Las Ramblers).

Room Tip: The rooms at the front of the hotel are bigger and lighter
