This hotel is perfect in the centre of the old city, but not crowdy. In 4 minutes you walk on the great La Rambla, it is near the harbor.
The rooms are nog big, but the facilities are great. We had breakfast and this was perfect.
Very friendly personal. And also the sunroof is realy great.

Room Tip: hotel is on a perfect location

Great hotel, good location just 5 mins walk to La Ramblas. We stayed here at the end our cycle trip and they were really helpful letting us store our bikes until the airport the next day. Room was fun - white decor and open shower. Very modern. Good place to stay for a night or two whilst visiting Barcelona.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights just recently. We had a great time. The hotel staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. Upon arrival we were given the option to have a regular room or a room with 2 floors. We chose the room with 2 floors, because let's face it - It just sounds better (and there was no extra cost)!

The room itself was laid out with the bathroom and toilet downstairs, and the bed upstairs. The room size was modest but perfectly fine. The open plan style made good use of the space and suited our tastes, although it may not be for everyone. The bed was extremely comfortable, and absolutely no noise at night. There is no traditional wardrobe but there is a rail system that offers about 5 hangers (Guess which one of us got priority to hang our clothes!). There is also a safe in the room which we made use of.

The location felt safe and was very well situated. About a 3 minute walk from La Rambla and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. The price is excellent - We paid about £50 per night. The rooms, although basic gave us everything we needed. That was - somewhere cool and clean to sleep and wash before heading out to enjoy the city. In light of reading other reviews, I should mention, there was no problem with our air conditioning or other faults in the room. The TV didn't have many English speaking channels as others mentioned, but fortunately we didn't go on holiday to watch TV!

All in all a great experience, we'd happily stay here again.

Room Tip: To my knowledge all rooms have no window that opens but that wasn't a problem for us. Could be a...

Stayed four nights in Barcelona four night. Arrived late at the evening and first thought about room was "ecxuse me?" One wall is glass, ok. I saw it already from web. But when i realised that shover is straight next that glasswall...
Infact the corridor was first when i think hmm...what is this place anyway? Black walls and tiny red lightbuttons witch give light.

When we woke up first morning at sunrise, i just look when light get brighter like those "daylight lamps" what are selling everywhere. Execpt this one brights up whole room and give gentle warm when going near that wall. We like that very much.
View from our room was very good. Trees and those angels on the roof at that old customs building, Palacio de la Aduana. Very nice.

Breakfast was ok, not something gourmet, but that we did not except. Special thanks for coffeemachine. It's very crucial to people get proper coffee at the morning :)

Location of Mimic is very good. We like that La Rambla was not so close than we first think (Yes, there is people who don't like places like Ramblas etc.)
We like local places, like nearby Leonés, at the Parallel. Infact food was superior at there. But that's another story.

People at Mimic reception, was very kind and very very fast gave help to us when we needed that. Thank you for that.

If something were there wrong, that was this "client computer" at the ground floor. When we use it for printing and we use it with money, it did not work. Computer today without pdf-reader is not usefull. Even there was no browser with internal pdf-reader.
And that printer was also something that did not work. But anyway, we get what we want, thanks for those guys at the desk

Yes, if we come another time to Barcelona, Mimic is our hotell. There is no doubt about that.

If you are looking for the place to sleep and keep your bags it's the good to stay in this hotel! All furniture from IKEA! The hotel is clean and staff is very friendly and speaking well English! If youare peoples with 5 star hotel requirements this hotel is not for you! All hotels in Barcelona are the same! The only one difference is very expensive hotels, but you are not comming to Spain just to stay in hotel!!

At first, when you arrive, you think the hotel is located in a abandoned area. But this is the reason that the hotel is very quiet ! And there are some small cafés where only spanisch people come. The drinks are cheap there (3,5 € for a coctail !) and very good instead of 8 € at Ramblas...
The rooms are very clean, confortable and modern.
Helpfull personel.
Very good breakfast (12 € e.p.).
Metro nearby. Just book it :-).

We have stayed in this hotel for 3 nights during our stay in Barcelona and enjoyed it very much.
Nice and friendly staff, never tired answering tourist questions. The hotel is very modern as you can see from the pictures with milk glass facade on exterior and glass wall to the bathroom. Rooms are equipped very functional with bed,TV, safe, a/c. The breakfast buffet offers a great variety in comparison to other hotels,and was great. The lounge area and terrace downstairs are great and very inviting to spend time there. There is a PC with printer that is set up for the guests to use.
The location is awesome,the hotel is very central:only a 5minute walk to La Rambla, 10 minutes to the sea,close to 2 metro stations.
I don't give 5 stars as I found the mattress too soft (but this is personal taste) and think a small refrigerator in the room would make the rooms perfect.
