Just back from a very enjoyable weekend stay at the hotel.

We booked the hotel via a voucher website and decided to upgrade to a Superior room.

The room was very spacious with a variety of mod cons (iPhone docking station was a nice touch) and the bathroom featured both a large bath and shower area with high quality marble style finishings.

Our room offered excellent panoramic views over the bustling city and I believe rooms to the front of the hotel offer stunning sea views.

We used the Spa facilities including indoor pool, steam room, jacuzzi and sauna and all good on that front.

Breakfast had everything you need such as cereal, meats, fruit, eggs, bacon and we certainly had no complaints.

We decided to get a taxi to the hotel from the airport and this cost €25. Check-in was painless and we were given a map with key points circled including the location of the hotel.

As many reviewers have stated the hotel is located at the top of a rather steep hill overlooking the city and perhaps the location of the hotel is the only reason I can think people would choose an alternative option.

For us it was actually perfect as we would walk into the city centre which would take about 15 to 20 minutes do a bus tour or have an evening out and then get a taxi back which would cost around €10. Because the hotel is removed from the city centre I would say the difference in tranquillity between this hotel and one that is slap bang in the city centre is tangible.

For a weekend the above is fine but I could see how someone might tire of having a twenty minute walk or a taxi each day if you were staying for a week or two

If however you are looking for a hotel that can offer both luxurious relaxation while offering access to a captivating city and you don't mind walking or can afford the additional taxis then you can't really go wrong with the Miramar.

Finally, for the geeks and Facebook addicts the code free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel was also very welcome.

There's no denying the fantastic location, beautiful views and proximity to the centre of Barcelona due to the cable car and public transport.

All the staff were incredibly helpful and the breakfast (though rather pricy) gorgeous. We ate in the restaurant on our first evening and apart from having to wait a rather long time for our main course, it was worth is as everything we were served was delicious. (The head waiter apologised profusely for the delay and offered us a drink on the house as compensation.) We also tried out room service which again was superb (and actually reasonably priced). The free wi-fi worked without any problems.

The room was very boutique as described on the hotel's website, however: The doors to the shower didn't meet properly, hence one stepped into a pool of water after each shower. Obviously a design fault. The flatscreen TV was quite small - I had expected something bigger for a room this size. It almost felt like an afterthought.

What was really frustrating was the noise from other guests and the bar. The layout of the different floors means that most rooms are facing a 'common area' which is the centre of the hotel. Consequently, as sound travels upwards, we could hear people talking on our own floor and below us. Friday and Saturday evening we couldn't choose to listen to the pianist as the music was audible in our room behind our closed door. The room doors also slammed from early morning and into the late evening. So noise was an issue.

For the price of our stay, we did expect something more exceptional and unfortunately, we didn't feel that the hotel lived up to that.

We spent 9 days at this hotel from 25th March till the 3rd April, we chose the Hotel Miramar because of all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We had upgraded to a suite before our stay and upon our arrival, the reception staff were helpful and our room was ready straightaway. I would say after staying in Barcelona for that length of time that this hotel has got one of the best views, we certainly picked the right hotel for us. Our suite was very spacious, queen bed and large bathroom. The only problem we had was that the canopy kept coming out onto the balcony shading the sun, to cut a long story short we changed rooms to another suite, which was not as big as the first but had better views. We used the gym and spa facilities, I had one of the best massages (called Journey to the nile) i've ever had. Overall the hotel ticked all our boxes, very helpful front desk staff, bar staff good fun and the waitresses at breakfast, brilliant! and we could relax and chill out using the hotel facilities and then head off downtown when it suited us. The only gripe we had was the rather unhelpful restaurant manager, we liked to go and get our breakfast, take it up to the room then go have a gym workout and eat our breakfast later, he didn't like this and certainly told us so. We did speak to the general manager who was very helpful and kind, all in all if you are looking for a relaxing break in a busy city, we would definately recommend this hotel. Tip: A great locals tapas bar called Canete, just off the La Ramblas in Union Street is a must!

Room Tip: We had room 402 & 517, the dual aspect rooms are better as you have a very good view of obth the city and the sea

This was my first time in Hotel Miramar so I did not know what to expect. I was very surprised with the warm welcoming at the reception. The staff explained me what to do where to go in barcelona and gave me many good adresses. The room was beatiful with a breathtaking seaview. I had really good dishes and amazing wine in their restaurant Forestier. I'd say that was one of my best vacations, I could enjoy the calm relaxing atmosphere of the hotel and the fun of Barcelona at the same time

An outstanding hotel in a stunning location. Satff were brilliant and the rooms clean and beautifully turned out. One slight problem - though the weather was anything but red hot - the ouitdoor pool was closed for renovation work. Let's hope we can enjoy it on our next stay.
The Forestiere restaurant where we ate on the final night was stunning. I can highly recommend the sample menu - and reckon the six course menu is probably even better if that's possible!! Thoroughly enjoyable and would recommend this hotel to anyone who fancies an upmarket stay in this fantastic city.
