Reviewed December 8, 2012

Me & my husband, who uses a wheelchair stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights in November. Our room was good and the accessible walk in shower was great. I must say the dark corridors are a bit odd but did not affect our stay. Breakfast was good and the Staff were helpful.
Our only disappontment was that we had booked half board and the first night went down for dinner, only to be told the Chef finishes after lunch and we could only have anything on the menu as long as the lone worker could microwave it. We found this to be not good so after speaking to Reception, changed to B&B and ate on Las Ramblas all the other evenings, much better & so many to choose from, tapas & paella being our favourite.
Barcelona itself is an ideal place for wheelchair users.

Cheap hotel clean, functional, quirky rooms. We really liked the lay out of the rooms and how they'd used the space to maximum effect. Very bright, modern and hardly any noise from other guests. Our room was cleaned to a high standard each dayThe breakfast area/ bar is cool with lots of individual sofa spaces all with their own tv and you control the remote.

When you first arrive the location seems a bit dodgy but actually we were here 3 nights/ 4 days and it was fine, good walking access to the metros, la ramblas, port vell, Barrio Gothic and barceloneta.

Some of the reviews on here are unfair, it is not 5 star but it is very good value for the money. Me, my partner and our 2 friends would all stay here again.

Thank to you for choose our establishment for your last stay in Barcelona, and for your positive assessment. Your comments about our service and quality are the best reward and encouragement to continue making our guests' stay an unforgettable experience.
Referring to the location, Hotel Acta Mimic is right in the centre of the city where all the shops, restaurants and bars are. The hotel is well-connected with the mean main transport, lets you go to the center and to the most emblematic touristic sites of the city easily.
We would love to welcome you in the future. Please, don't hesitate to contact us for the next time you visit the city.

I never write reviews, but felt compelled to as so many things in this hotel were way below average. I usually get a little annoyed by people moaning about every single detail.. but now I FEEL YOUR PAIN!

My boyfriend took me to Barcelona for our aniversary. i was very excited (short lived). When we eventually got to the hotel from the airport - after paying 30 EURO'S!!! in a taxi- we were 'greeted' by the most miserable man ive ever come across in a hotel, who practically grunted at us when we came in, threw over our room card and palmed off. I'll just mention now that this hotel does not look 'trendy' as has been stated in other reviews - it looked like a hostel to me from the outside, and inside to be honest!We then waited about 10/15 mins to get into a lift as they were both pretty broken! The corridors are pitch black with tacky red lights. Our room was bright - thats the only positive thing i can say about it really. Huge hole in the wall where the toilet was. Not quite enough frosting on the windows, so i can imagine the spanish locals over the road got a few eye fulls. Beds are brick hard, floors were scraped and generally horrendous. No tea/coffee making facilities, marks all over the walls. A large bulb which changes colour... which actually hangs over one persons head while they sleep (tad dangerous!?). Oh and if you think youre going to watch TV.. think again if your British! (that is if the only thing you want to watch is the national geographic channel or.. the disney channel.

Hotel 'take-away' food was lethal. we were so tired after the first evening that we ordered a pizza and paella. The pizza was TINY and was clearly a rubbish frozen pizza, and the paella also tiny was awful. Go out to eat!!!!!!!

Couldnt wait to get out of the room, went down for breakfast. It feels like youre sitting in a school canteen. Staff seemed friendly, but food was terrible. Not really a great option for us Brits. Lots for the spaniards, germans and french.

Surrounding area is a little dodgy, id suggest running to the marina where its safer. La Ramblas is great at night (stay in the middle strip of it especially if you have children - i was heckled by prostitutes as we walked up the wrong side).

Barcelona as a city was beautiful - go on the cable car up the mountain, and to the aquarium on the beach. DO NOT stay at this 'hotel', its horrendous. And i really dont blame others for leaving the hotel to book into another which a couple we met actually did. Look for another hotel, i assure you you will be disapointed with this one!

Dear Chloe,

We appreciate the time that you took to post your comments and we regret to know that your expectations weren't satisfied during your stay.

The Acta Mimic Hotel is situated in the old Teatro Colon, which has preserved the facade. Therefore, the decor and soft lighting in the hallways (in contrast with red colors) evokes a theater. The Hotel has an innovative design, and we understand that is not liked by all our customers.

Referring to the restaurant service, we are surprised about your comments, we have a good reviews for the restaurant, but we will talk with the responsible person to know what happened.

In reference to the location, it is important for us to let you know that the Acta Mimic Hotel is located in the city center just minutes’ walk from Plaza Catalunya. It is a safe area, which is under constant surveillance.

Ultimately, This information is very useful for us, it allows us to keep improving to achieve excellence in service to our customers.

We deeply regret the stay at ACTA MiMiC hotel has not lived up to your expectations and look forward to serving you in future.

Sincerely.

When I travel I prefer newer hotels and Acta Mimic is really good!
With Modern stuff it has a good price if compared to Barcelona standards.
Service was also good.
I would stay there again in my next visit.

Our usually competent travel agent booked us in this hotel. On the way in from the airport our taxi driver, who did not speak English, could only say "area no good." The property was the hotel equivelant of a "biker bar." My wife and I could not get out of their quick enough. We immedaitely booked another hotel and did not spend the night there. We did not feel safe. I read these other reviews and wonder if there are actually two Hotel Acta Mimics.

Lovely clean quirky hotel! Nice and close to everything! The side streets were a little bit seedy but nothing much to worry about.
Breakfast was good, plenty of choice and staff were helpful at all times, would definitely recommend this hotel.
