Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 September 2012

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Miramar for a week. I researched a lot of different Barcelona hotels before settling on this property.

The front desk service was great. After checking in, we had a problem with our credit card allowing international charges which affected room payment. The front desk staff were very gracious and patient while we contacted the credit union back in the United States to fix the problem. The front desk staff also provided great tips for sightseeing and getting around Barcelona.

The hotel is set in a great mountainside location that provides breathtaking views of the city. The hotel grounds include a beautiful courtyard with nice greenery, flowers, fountains, statutes, and park benches for taking a break after strolling. The red sightseeing bus stops at the front of the hotel and there is also a taxi stand. The metro is a 5 minute walk down the mountain through a Barcelona community.

The Mirarmar Cafe (not run by the hotel) and the city's trolley are on the other side of the courtyard. Food at the cafe was okay. The cafe has indoor and outdoor seating. Like Hotel Miramar, the cafe offers magnificent views of Barcelona. Two medium size cats freely roam the cafe waiting for patrons to drop a morsel. We even saw one cat jump into a chair and start eating remains of a meal left on the table after patrons departed. Service was quick and courteuous.

The city's trolley that leaves from the courtyard of Hotel Miramar is not for those who have a fear of heights. The trolley ends at the beach. So, it's a quick and inexpensive (7 euros) way of getting to the beach. The entire trolley trip from hotel to beach took about 10 minutes. It can get crowded during mid-day and late afternoon when the queue is longer than the trip itself.

Hotel Miramar's interior is upscale boutique. Their resaturant's breakfast buffet was pricey (50 euros) but good. We found ourselves eating elsewhere due to the restaurant's high prices. The lounge areas are very nice and the pool area is nice as well.

The rooms are nicely appointed. The balconies are large with nice furniture and a table for resting your drink. We found ourselves resting on the large balcony enjoying the Barcelona city view and sunset each evening, not really wanting to move. We stayed in a Premium Room which was nice. Premium Room Pros: decor, lovely shower with rainfall, refrigerator, iPhone and music centers. Premium Room Cons: very hard bed mattress, bathtub had awkward structure (seemed like it was installed with the wrong end at the faucet), since the bathroom is in the room light woke me up when husband used it in the middle of night, and the maids kept leaving just one washcloth when there were two of us in the room. My husband and I love each other but didn't want to share washcloths while on vacation. Each night, my husband had to contact housekeeping to obtain an extra washcloth.

Overall, Hotel Miramar is a good choice when staying in Barcelona. We are travelling to Barcelona again in 2013 and will stay at this hotel.

Amazing hotel and very luxurious. When we arrived there were buildings renovations ongoing in front of hotel(its been a while since we stayed) We were given a room looking onto building so asked to get moved straight away. This was no problem and they moved us immediately to another room but to a twin room. We again asked to be moved to a double room as this was waht we paid for. We felt bad complaining but staff were so professional and friendly and more than happy to accomodate us and we got a beautiful room. The pool is so relaxing with comfortable loungers. The only negative thing I would say is not enough pool space and loungers for all guests. Pool bar and restaurant are way over priced. 16euro for a club sandwich. Spas and indoor pool are amazing also.

Room Tip: Rooms looking onto docks are amazing and cable car is at hotel.

This Hotel was perfect in every way. It is clean and fresh, spacious with calming, subtle decor. The reception staff are extremely pleasant and helpful inviting you to sit with a cool drink while checking in. The foyer is area is lovely & smells fresh. it has a nice bar and sitting area.

The room was nice & not too small, pleasant decor, spotlessly clean, light and airy with big windows and a good balcony. The beds are big and comfortable and the pillows are nice. The cupboard is big for all your hanging needs. The only thing lacking is a rack for all the suitcases, then the room would stay clutter free. The bed for our 11 year old child was a fold out which is always a disappointment, especially at a 5 star hotel. A mini bar fridge is available much to the kids delight!

The bathroom was a favorite of mine and I am a bit fussy with bathrooms. Spotlessly clean, it is a really good size with the toilet having it's own door within the bathroom. The shower is great, and a free standing big bath. The toiletries were very nice with all you need. Fluffy towels as well as robes and slippers were supplied and thankfully, face washers (which I discovered are not the standard throughout Europe).

The outdoor pool area is wonderful, the bar staff absolutely perfect, they really know how to pour a nice cold drink and they find you if you wander off to the beautiful shaded area outside the pool to give you your yummy order. The pool was clean and really nice with big fluffy towels given fresh to you while you're there. Plenty of comfy sun lounges are scattered around. The gym is convenient and an indoor pool is next to it. We never located the indoor spa pool shown in the pictures of the hotel .... where is it?

Breakfast was really delicious with plenty to choose from, all fresh and lovely with nice chilled bottled water amongst other choices. The dining on the balcony is delightful.

The view from this hotel is spectacular, You can see the big ships down in the port which is especially exciting for those waiting to take a cruise as we were.No way would I stay down right in the city after staying here. It is easy to jump on a bus (they run until 9pm) and go down the hill to see all the sights etc. If you're fit you can walk it. It was very hot during our stay (our excuse), we caught a taxi back after dinner it was about 10 Euros. The hop on hop off tourist bus is right outside the hotel door as shown by the reception staff (thank you) and it's an awesome way to see Barcelona & highly recommended.

Check out the special packages before you book, that way you'll get breakfast included. I think the breakfast should be included with all the reservations and not "an extra". It's the only Hotel we stayed at in Europe that didn't automatically include breakfast in the price. Kids stay free though which encourages families and we met some lovely people at this hotel. We felt safe at all times. It would be a lovely place to have a function, such as a wedding.

We loved our stay here and would return in a heartbeat. Thank you for a lovely stay, we just wish we had longer!

For our final three days in Barcleona as part of our holiday we had decided to stay in a hotel with a pool where we could relax and spend time by the pool and visit the Fundacio Joan Miro.
We chose this one as we also found a very good deal.
We ended up staying in one of their luxury suites a 35sqm room with a beautiful bath own terrace a beautiful sofa.. about four of us could have stayed in a room this sizw.
The bed was a wonderful kingsize.. enormous and very very comfortable.
There was a great view from this hotel.
The cleaniliness was not great and we did not find all the toiletries we were promised , plus annoyingly the car we had booked with the deal never materliased until two hours before our departure which meant we could not use it.
However the location is stunning. The pool which was generally quite clean except on the day they had a trainee staff member covering the pool.
I really enjoyed being there for the comfort of the room, the beautiful location and the pool.
However the breakfast is not the best nor is the food the greatest I have had .
However the location of where we could have breakfast on a terrace overlooking Barcelona on this mountain top hotel was stunning.
It is very romantic and comfortable

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms with a view over Barcelona overlooking the sea front

Stayed in a standard room with double bed. Room was perfect including separate bath, shower, double bed, balcony, large flat screen tv. Everything you could need in perfect condition. Everything was very clean and well presented.

Hotel pool, pool bar and restaurant was all amazing. Very nice indeed. Only downside would be the prices. Abit expensive but that is to be expected with a hotel of this standard. Not really a moan, rather a heads up.

Also has a lovely spa which is complementary with the rooms.

Great location away from busy streets, but close enough to walk to las ramblas, although it is at the top of a large hill, way back takes a while longer, we normally got a cab which was about 5 - 6 euros. Beach easy to get to, sky rail just next to the hotel (dont eat in the restaurant next to it though).

fantastic time had. Would 100% go back.

Got this hotel on a special 'club' rate. Overall the room was fins- a litte dated and dark (brown ). The thing that made the room (and the stay) was the private terrace/balcony. It was very cool and following the recent hot weather- it was great to have a shaded area. The views on an evening on the bright lights below were fantastic and that is where we spent the evenings sharing a bottle of wine and enjoying the views. On the last day- the heat just proved too much and it was nice to be able to retreat to the shade of the balcony and relax on the loungers in the afternoon. The interior of the hotel had quirky touches and, for some reason, I felt it had a 70's feel about it - but very plush.

Had breakfast on the first day. It was very nice. Typical hotel breakfast but lots of choice. Found lots of places to eat within walking distance. The bar was very busy and appeared under staffed. That is the only gripe. Would stay here again. You really get the best of both-cool parklands and easy access to all the major attractions- either by public transport or on foot. I would reccomend as you can be in the thick of it in 10 minutes or you can treat the hotel as a resort to mooch around when you feel like having a mid holiday 'lazy day'.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a premium room- the balconies are more spacious and the views unhindered.
