Reviewed 10 February 2013

This hotel is a beautiful Boutique Hotel located in downtown Barcelona.
It is not too far from many of the attractions and is in a quieter area and not on a busy thoroghfare.
Renovated in recent years it relies on Trip Advisor referrals and I am glad to add it to the list of "Thumbs up" places to stay. It does not have resort type amenities but it is pleasant, clean and well maintained.
Great value for the money.

Just returned from a three night stay. Metro is a five minute walk away so location is not a problem. Indeed, it means that the hotel is in a quiet area but allows easy access to all main attractions. If using the metro a reasonable amount the T10 ticket is a MUST slicing the normal fares around a half. Rooms at the Villa Emelia are modern and cleaned every day - breakfasts were excellent - piano (live at weekends) bar full of atmosphere and warm surroundings. All staff were great...without exception. This hotel not only caters for its guests - it cares for them too! Excellent.

I picked this hotel based on Tripadvisor reviews and was so impressed. The hotel staff were so personable and the decor was spectacular. The breakfast was the best I've seen after recently visiting Paris, Vienna and Munich. It is a special find in the heart of Barcelona and easy to get around.

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in Jan 13.
The hotel was modern, friendly and clean.
The staff were very good too.
I think you would get more from this hotel during the summer months as you could sit on the beautiful roof terrace and relax. As there are no heaters it is impossible during colder spells which is a shame.
Although there are lots of restaurants and bars around the hotel it is not close to the main attractions. If you like a lot of walking you'll be happy here.
The only real downside was that the rooms were very warm and the air con is not switched on until summer. This means you have to have your window open which can be rather noisy.

We stayed at Villa Emilia in September 2012 and overall really loved the location, service and the rooms. The staff were extremely helpful and very attentive. My only critique would be, the pillows - were flat and hard (so bring your own) and the rooms don't have a bath tubs. I think hotel has some rooms with bath tubs, but VERY few. Obviously that is not a deal breaker.....
