The boutique hotel Villa Emilia boasts of great location near the historic central area, while the nearby metro station means getting anywhere else with no fuss. The other big selling-point is the lovely rooftop terrace with superb city views. For socializing and mingling hang out at the ground floor Zink bar where you can enjoy live music at certain evenings.
The hotel is the house of Casanovas Catalan restaurant which presents a more formal dining option. The management has thought everything through, so you can demand an allergy-free room, meeting and event facilities, dry cleaning services and a parking space, but this comes at a surcharge.
