HE SAID: Stayed at the Catedral Hotel www.barcleonacatedral.com. This location was perfect! We found an amazing restaurant right next to the Catedral hotel called "Nonelle". It was one of the best meals of my entire life! So good that we went back again which was difficult to go to the same place for dinner when we only had about 6 nights in …
... near by and I am not sure why.
Catalan Art Museum
I thought that the outside of this building was more spectacular then the art inside. I usually enjoy photography and they had a temporary exhibit by Joan Colom a Spanish photographer who was famous in the 50’s and 60’s. His claim to fame was how he shot his subjects. He would hide the camera on his hip or under a jacket and take pictures of unsuspecting people. ...
... beyond the security check-in—ha! Gillian waited in the line with me for my boarding—I think she didn't like to wait by herself. I had an easy flight back to Barcelona and then, after collecting my checked suitcase, caught a taxi to the apartment I had booked for just one night since the cruise leaves tomorrow.
This apartment was also in the El Born District, actually just a few streets away from the last one. I ...
... so pretty and colorful. After the park we said our goodbyes and I headed back, so I could go to the other hotel. For the rest of the day, I relaxed in my room and got ready for a long day of traveling. Barcelona has been amazing and I'm so glad that I went and experienced the city! I met some really awesome travelers as well from all ...
We slept in again which didn’t even matter because it was the absolute worst sleep ever sleeping in +28 with another person in a room where you cant open the window because its too damn loud and the street light is literally beside your bedroom window is horrible. oh did I mention there was no freaking air conditioning and it is stinking hot outside which means its horrible inside, it felt like sleeping with a ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Villa Emilia Barcelona
Great location & great hotel
Excellent location - 15-20min walk from La Ramblas or 10min on the Metro - close to the hub of action but far enough to get a good night sleep. Owners clearly tried (successfully) to create a Boutique Hotel feel. The terrace on the 7th floor is great for chilling out with a drink after a whole day of sightseeing. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely go back.
We have just returned from three days holidays in Barcelona where we stayed at Villa Emilia.
I´ve been reading the apraising reviews about Villa Emilia and couldn´t agree more! As exiting and fun it is to plan a trip and look for accomodation through internet, it also feels a bit risky. We planned to stay near The Ramblas but luckily enough, ended up to Villa Emilia. Metrostation was very near and made sight-seeing easy, but the neighborough was so much quiter and more tourist-free area, that we appreciated it. The hotel itself was very stylishly decorated and trendy, yet being cosy and warm in athmosphere! It was also very clean. We loved our comfortable, spacious room! The breakfast (included on offer) was also classy with fresh fruits, baguettes and cold plates etc. We also enjoyed the roof terrace on a sunny day, beautiful! And last but definitely not the least - the staff. Most friendly and helpful people at the reception desk were easy to approach and made us feel really welcomed! We are looking forward to coming back, take our children with us and stay at Villa Emilia in lovely Barcelona again!
We stayed at the Emilia for 3 nights at the end of April '07.
This was my first visit to Barcelona, we booked the Villa Emila through Spainbookers.com.
This hotel was the highlight of our Portugal/Spain trip accomodation-wise. The room was boutique modern and had all the amenities that we needed and was of a nice size and cleanand quiet (unlike many other European hotel rooms). The breakfast included in the room price was phenomenal - the artisanal sausages, cheeses, breads, pastries and hams were clearly handpicked and the boil your own egg contraption was darling. The juices were all fresh squeezed and the coffee was good. Also - cava in the morning - who could complain! We loved it so much that we had dinner there on our last night and loved our dinner just as much as the wonderful breakfasts. The location was great - a short half block away from the Rocafort station which is nice and centrally located. Additionally, it was within walking distance to the city center as well as all of the sights in the Eixample. Needless to say, I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone needing affordable WONDERFUL accomodation in Barcelona.
We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights with my man. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful (which is not always the case in Spain).
