“Great option to downtown hotels”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

I spent three nights at Miramar Barcelona in April. The hotel is beautiful - contemporary and elegant in an understated way. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable. Ours had a balcony overlooking the ocean, which is not as glamorous as it sounds as this area is where cargo and cruise lines dock, but a nice view nonetheless. The staff were wonderful and very helpful in making suggestions of restaurants (Cal Pep and Bar Toro were two excellent recommendations) and where to go. I thought one of the advantages of the hotel was that it is slightly out of the way - certainly within a good walk to the shopping areas - but not in the thick of things. Barcelona was crowded and noisy and it was nice to escape from the action each night. The surrounding property is gorgeous and lovely to walk around.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the water. I understand there is a shooting range on the back side and that t...

I and my husband visited Hotel Miramar Barcelona four days in April 2013. We liked the hotel very much. It is situated on Montjuïc with a fantastic view over Barcelona and with marvellous parks and museums nearby. We had to use a taxi when we wanted to go down-town, but it was just a short drive. The staff was friendly, the room nice and the terrace was marvellous with its view over Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. The breakfast was very tasty, but could have been even better with more fruits and berries. We absolutely want to stay in this nice hotel again!

I went for a long weekend in the one of the Premium rooms looking over the gardens.
The rooms are very clean and modern looking with an open bathroom and terrace. If you look at the website the picture is spot on! (looks just like the room I was in, minus the flower petals lol). The toilet and shower has frosted glass but you can also pull a cutain (still quiet see through) around the bathroom area for a bit more privacy. The bath is a stange shape (egg) but really nice, would have loved some bubble bath thou. I didnt get to use the spar or gym but took a look on my first day, they look very clean and the staff in here are extreemly helpful and gave me a tour. I also didnt have breakfast but enjoyed a burger from the dinner time menu one afternoon, quiet £ but a great burger. The staff in reception are really helpfull.
Overall a great stay, shame I only had a long weekend and didnt have enough time to really enjoy the facilitys.

Just returned from 3 nights in Barcelona at the Miramar......cannot wait to return. Extremely helpful staff, fantastic location and the views are the best in Barcelona. Lovely rooms and all the facilities you expect from a 5 star hotel.

Room Tip: Shooting range at rear of hotel open during the day, can be a bit noisy

I went to Hotel Miramar during the Mobile World Congress 2013 and spent 4 days in the second week of February.
The staff members are courteous and polite. Although they have a strong Spanish accent, its understandable. The morning buffet breakfast was good but repetitive. I didnt see much variations in the 4 days breakfast. You should specially try the strawberry punch, which in my opinion was one of the best I have had till now.
What makes this hotel so awesome is the view that you get from the top of the hill across the Mediterranean sea. I wish they had a better bar considering the price they charge for the stay. I saw El Clasico on saturday night at the bar but was disappointed to realize that there was no projector and a large TV instead.
The cleaning lady didn't seem to speak a word of English and that was a bit of problem because she wouldn't understand what I was trying to say.
Not to forget how these people hike the price during an international event, which is beyond my understanding. And its not a marginal increase but 250% increase in the room tariff.
All in all, I had a great time in this hotel, specially because of the view and clean rooms !

Room Tip: Ask for a sea facing room. They give the worse rooms initially. Also, negotiate on security money th...

I stayed here for a week with my friend at the end of August 2012.

The view is absolutely breathtaking and the rooms were very spacious. The breakfast was delicious and so was the room service.

I spent a lot of time at the pool just relaxing and taking in the sun. The hotel staff was very helpful and gave us good tips on where to eat as night.

One does need to take a taxi into town which really adds up. But the location and view was worth it.

Overall, a great experience and a lovely hotel!

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.
