They say that men are from Mars and Women are from Visa. Maybe true, maybe not. I prefer to think that we just look at two sides of the same coin.

Take today for instance. It's breakfast time and we’ve elected to take up the offer of buffet breakfast in the hotel dining area. My plan is to try as many things as I can, so I come back …

We've arrived safely in Zurich. For the first time ever, following recent events, the flight from southeast Asia to Europe was the one that almost had us concerned. We admit we are both a little relieved when wheels hit tarmac, even if it’s too foggy to confirm we are even in the country that we’re supposed to be.

We had …

... room and kitchen was moved into our bedroom, our bathroom or upstairs one day before we left and was set to be put back one day after we returned home. I walked in the door at 5:30 p.m. last Saturday and screamed out an expletive. The patch didn't match and looked awful!!!

Luckily, I was able to reach the movers and cancel Monday. Then I called the ...

On to the Cruise

... bigger, bathroom has a bath and again it is bigger and it has a decent balcony. We met our steward whose name is Mono and his offsider is I-Ful (pronounced Evil).

We did the usual and walked all over the ship checking out which bar we would call home and were very impressed with the ship. One of the pool areas is enclosed but the roof opens (like etihad's roof). The showroom is huge, 3 tiers, very plush. So having said that it is as nice ...

King of Spain

... so I corked up and started way to early again. And it was the same story basically. Still a lot of fun but I only managed to 3am then I thought it was enough. Next day was a walk again, went up to park guell and had a stroll around there. Then back down to the old city and all the small little walkways there. Sat in a park and played some guitar too but too cold so couldn't stand it for long. Thought I'd take it easy the third night since I thought ...

    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.

    Just a bad experience !


    We have just returned from three days holidays in Barcelona where we stayed at Villa Emilia.

    Warmly recommend 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!

    Would Recommend Villa Emilia


    We stayed at the Emilia for 3 nights at the end of April '07.

    Absouletly loved the Villa Emilia


    This was my first visit to Barcelona, we booked the Villa Emila through

    Absolutely Loved The Villa Emilia!


    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.

    Absolutely recommended


    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).

    Excellent hotel, very stylish


    Cant give the hotel enough praise. The rooms are stunning. Really contemporary and stylish. The staff were friendly and welcoming.
