We stayed at Hotel Miramar in July 2009 with our small children. The hotel is located in Montjuic park above the city and boasts amazing 180+ degree views of the city and the Mediterranean. We stayed for 3 days prior to a cruise with our 3 small children. Our parents and some friends from London also stayed at the hotel so we were able to see several rooms.
The hotel is located just above the city and it is about a 7-10 minute walk down into the center of the city. Our 3 year old was able to walk into the city with ease, but we took a taxi back up the hill. (Tip: Taxi's in Barcelona only hold 4 people so we had to split up and take two unfortunately. It cost us about $10-15 per taxi to get back up to the hotel.) The hotel is located within a large public park with many beautiful walking trails. It is also located right next to the Fenicular (Sky tram) which you can take down to the sea.
The hotel is very neat, clean and modern. I do not think you will find a better bathroom in any hotel in Europe. We were able to get rooms that joined by a short private hallway. The original rooms we had were farily small with lovely balconies that looked over the city and the Mediterranean. Unfortunately the battery on our adjoining door ran out so we had to be moved. We were disappointed to lose our view, but the ground level rooms they gave us did not dissappoint. One had a very large deck that must have been over 700 square feet and the other room was very large- probably 700 square feet as well. All the Superior view rooms are a bit smaller than the "delux" rooms. The hotel is built into the hill and many of the rooms also come with private hot tubs.
There are two pools: one indoor and one out. They have bar and lunch service at the outdoor pool during the day. It is a large pool with lots of grass around it and nice lounge chairs and tables. The have a nice breakfast, but it is $25 Euros. They have a smaller coffee/pastries option for 10 Euros.
The staff was very friendly and English speaking. They made sure that we were taken care of and were very nice to the children. Check in time was later in the afternoon, but when they saw us arrive at 8am with 3 jet lagged kids they put us in a room as soon as one opened so the kids could sleep.
If you want to be in the hussle and bussel of the center of the city, this is not the hotel for you. If you want to be in a position to take in the sheer beauty of the area this hotel is great! We will definately stay here when we come back.
