“Trendy hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

I stayed at the Mirror Barcelona for one night in August. The hotel is located in a nice area and is walking distance from the main streets and a metro station. The hotel is very modern and trendy, everything white and mirrored. There is even a television in the washroom! The style does make it interesting however also not very cozy. Still, the room was clean and had a nice shower with rainfall shower head. There was also a private balcony that looked out onto other apartment buildings. Overall a good place to stay with friendly staff and worth the price.

This hotel may strike some travellers as weird, it will strike all travellers as quirky. I liked it. The quirky part is that the rooms are all white, with lots of mirrors and very smooth surfaces-- as in the closet doors have no knobs etc. Even the hallways are strange. When you step out of the elevator, you are presented with a short hallway with a door at each end. Wave your room key at one of these doors and it slides open to a landing with 3 room doors. There is a strange (white-- of course!) sitting area by the elevator with some interesting sculptures where a lot of the guests like to take pictures. I would best describe the hotel as Modernisme meets Apple!

Room Tip: Get cereal or other breakfast from grocery stores nearby and tea or coffee from room service. They w...

The Mirror Hotel, that's who! We had great welcome from FERNANDO and his team even though we had booked through Clever Hotels and they had gone burst and The Mirror Hotel had not been paid. FERNANDO sorted it all out and we thoroughly enjoyed our four nights.

Just got back from a stay here. These are my impressions:

Pros:

1. Central, just a three blocks from Las Ramblas and other shopping districts, and within walking distance to almost everything.

2. If you're a gay traveler, the hotel is a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction of Las Ramblas from almost every gay bar and club that you will need.

3. The staff were great with suggestions and directions, including train schedules for when we wanted to visit an out-of-town beach (Sitges).

4. The room was clean (although there were wear and tear marks throughout), the bed was amazing and I rather liked the various ways you could change the lighting.

5. Breakfast was standard continental (that Serrano Ham was great), with eggs and pancakes available by asking the waiter, instead of just serving yourself.

6. The elevator ride was always fun, since you could see your reflection throughout the hotel.

Cons:

1. I thought the room was small, and if we had more luggage and things, there would not have been any place to put them.

2. While breakfast was good, certain aspects were slow. There was only one waiter/waitress to take everyone's order, and one coffee maker for espresso drinks. This led to delays. Ordering eggs takes a while, since the kitchen (which looked fully staffed) took an abnormally long time to fry up eggs.

3. The design was not to my liking, but my husband loved it. To me, all white is rather cold. You may have the same reaction.

4. The towel rack in the shower was difficult to manage (a small quibble).

I would stay here again, if only for the location.

I went to Barcelona in July 2012 not 2013, but I loved this hotel, and as an architect, the design and style was very sharp and modern - interior and exterior. We stayed here 5 days total. From the minute we walked in, the receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. The attendants and staff were great as well during our entire stay. The area was quiet, about a 20 minute walk to Las Ramblas. I would recommend this!

Really great decor, really has the wow factor!
We stayed for 4 nights at the end of march and have no complaints at all! The hotel was spotless, a tough job considering everything was white and mirrors. Also great facilities and only a 10 minute walk to las ramblas.
The staff were always really friendly and welcoming.

After reading other reviews I'd like to comment that the lighting certainly wasn't difficult to understand and yes the floor had a couple of dark marks from suitcases but this is to be expected with white floors and really not noticeable! Also the toilet and shower doors are of such frosted glass that you are unable to see anything through, only faint figures, so no need to worry!
We didnt choose to have breakfast so can't comment on this, but overall such a great hotel, we would definitely return!!
