“Before you die:) you have to stay here!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

This is my favourite hotel on the planet! :)
My G/F & I decided to go to Barcelona for the first time, for a short break ( 5 days ) and I searched high and low for the perfect hotel which offered luxury, relaxation, views, and the WOW factor... and then I found it.

This hotel is ontop of a very high hill/cliff with stunning views of Barcelona. You can see the whole of Barcelona from the front of the hotel and many of the landmarks it has to offer... its simply breathtaking. The hotel entrance is hidden away under a small tunnel, and then their it is... and we both said OMG this s our hotel as the taxi pulled up as it is incredible. Straight away a porter was there to open the taxi door and take our bags to our room while another member of staff welcomed us and asked us to come and sign in. The staff are so welcoming, professional and anything you want or any questions you need answering they are 1st class. As we were escourted to our room all we could do is stare at the architecture of the hotel, the furnishings, and the amazing function rooms, gym, indoor pool, and spas. When we got to our room, our mouths hit the floor, is was the most incredible room and view we have ever got ( and we've stayed in a few pretty amazing las vegas hotels ). Our room was more of a suite than a standard room... huge bed, cd/ipod player that could play in the bedroom our through to the bathroom with a flick of a switch. A huge flatscreen, nice mini bar, a massive free standing deep bath, the shower and toilet were behind two seperate doors in the bathroom which was nice, and the sink had a huge mirror, and lots of free toiletries. There was also a walk in wardrobe, and a few comfy chairs. Our room was on the corner of the upper floor with views of the gardens on one side and a few of the pool and sea/port on the other. Our balcony had very comfy chairs and a table, and they supplied robes and slippers for free.
The poolside is beautiful, the grounds are so well looked after, beautiful bushes/flowers, the sun loungers are so chic and comfortable, and the pool itself is perfect. This hotel although high up, feels so private, safe, and everything is onsite, so you dont even have to leave the hotel if you dont want to. Also at the back of the hotel is the cable car that takes you down to the beach.
We had the best time ever here, and the hotel owners/staff should be very proud and happy, because they have a gem and make all there guests feel special and give them a great holiday :)
We would love to return someday!!

Afer returning to my room my last nightt, I found that we were burglarized. After noyifying management and calling the police, the manager refused to reimburse for my loss ( around $900 ). Subsequent calls have been ignored. I would not recommend this hotel. It is not safe and management is non responsive. Many better hotels in Barcelona.

This is a fantastic hotel ! It is a bit further from the centre, but well connected by public transport or even by taxi that you can share if it is more of you for acceptable price. It has a wonderful orange garden with a view over the city and the sea, where you can sip your morning coffee which, is excellent by the way! We were having coffee outside even in December! Also delicious french style pastries are available for brekafast.
The rooms are spacious and in modern style, super clean. Contrary to some reviews we had had great experience with the staff in the hotel.
The spa is nice, but I have personally enjoyed the swimming pool the most. Unlike many, quasi 5 star hotels. this one has a decent size and I was having my morning workout there. Gym is also available, but I have not tested it as I prefer swimming. I could not recommend this place more!

The Miramar is a great hotel in a great location, it is quiet with a great view of the city and it is a great location to retreat to from the intensity of the main tourist areas. The rooms are great, the shower in our room was so good I had to be dragged out of it, the staff are friendly.

Here are a couple of things I think this hotel needs to improve on:
1. The hotel bar could be such a great place, the views are perfect but for some reason the place is generally empty. If they could create a but of a buzz here it would be a fantastic place to
2. The hotel seems to have a general problem with water, when it rains staff need to put buckets at strategic points around the common areas as the rain come through the roof. Lucky for them that Barcelona doesnt get a lot of rain. In some of the rooms there is damp by windows or in showers.
3. The hotel breakfast is too expensive which is a real shame because it is a great location and their buffet is very good.
4. We did a couple of Spa treatments and although they were good again the prices we felt were higher than what we thought they should be even for such a highly rated hotel

Dont let any of the above put you off going to the hotel, it is really a nice hotel and I will go back to it.

Spent a fantastic weekend at the hotel during mid-december. The price for our spacious double room was a joke given the quality and stunning location of the hotel! Our balcony including nice outdoor furniture with cushions etc that actually made you want to spend time there had a beautiful view over both the city beneath as well as the ocean...not sure if many other hotels can actually offer that in Barcelona. Don't get too worried about the distance from the hotel to the city centre. It's an easy 5-10min walk down and after a long day out in Barcelona we always took a very affordable cab back. Taking cleanliness and the nice spa as a given the most striking positive feature was the great staff. In my experience Barcelona unfortunately increasingly develops Parisien traits when it comes to hospitality and giving it an effort to actually make tourists feel welcome. The Miramar staff was a refreshing exception! Very good English (I know it's sad that this is a feature worth mentioning...welcome to Barcelona), extremely friendly at all times and going the extra mile to make your stay more pleasant.

Especially during the off-season a great value-for-money hotel that will make your entire experience of Barcelona just a little bit more special.

What a great hotel! The registration staff was attentive and couldn't do enough for us. We stayed for 2 nights prior to our cruise and returned for a 1 night stay after the cruise before flying home to USA. Our first room was fabulous, beautifully appointed and very spacious, with a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean and the beautiful gardens. Our room on return was on the 5th floor, equally beautiful, with a balcony facing the pool and cruise marina. We had brunch in the restaurant which was absolutely wonderful, lots of delicious choices and a very attentive staff. The hotel, no matter where we went, from the gardens to our balcony or the hotel lobby was just beautiful, clean and very peaceful and quiet. I highly recommend it for pre- or post-cruising or a visit to the wonderful city of Barcelona!! Will certainly return if I have the opportunity,

Having had a really bad stay here during 2010 we were invited back, and we thought hey ho lets give a go for 1 night.

In fact this time we had such an enjoyable stay we decided to stay for an additional 3 nights.

We stayed in a room with a view over the city, this room had a large balcony which was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the amazing views.

Wow what a staff transformation - this time we found them all to be very helpful and personable.

We know where we will be staying on our next trip to Barcelona - many thanks everyone for making our stay so enjoyable :-)

Room Tip: The rooms at the back of the hotel are larger, quieter and have amazing views of Barcelona.
