“Very helpful staff, and better than saying in barcelona”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We went by train to barcelona so arrived at 9.30am, instead of just taking our bags in, they let
us have the room early as it was free (not saying that could always happen) but they could of said no.Great room No 442. Sea view, with balcony, no palm tree in the way, Slightly bigger than all the others on fourth floor. Very comfortable double bed. Blackout blinds as well as curtains, which we found handy. Plastic loungers plus table on balcony, you lose the sun about 4.30pm as the sun sets slightly behind the hotel. No tea/coffee making in any rooms so take your own travel kettle if you like a cuppa early morning. Very handy for train into Barcelona, about 70p with a T10 ticket.
Didn`t eat at hotel so can`t comment, as we like to eat locally, but quite a few people did eat in,

Thank you very much for such a good opinion. Customers satisfaction is our goal, so if we can do it, we will. Rooms with balcony are a plus. In Spain, usually, there is no tea/coffe facilities in the room, but you can always ask for room service in the morning.

Enjoyed 5 nights at the Miramar just before Easter and was pleasantly surprised. It is a clean pleasant hotel and the room we were staying in was big with a balcony and a nice bathroom. We did not eat int he hotel but breakfast looked fine though expensive we chose to eat out at a local cafe.
Badalona is a pleasant town with a good beach a good range of shops and excellent train link into to Barcelona taking no more than 20 minutes. There are plenty of bars and restaurants even out of season we could find nice places to eat.
Barcelona is a great city location and even after 5 nights where we tried hard to see as much as we can we will come back as there is much more still to see.
The Miramar provided an excellent base and we certainly preferred it to being in the centre of Barcelona. We would certainly go back to this hotel in the future

Room Tip: 336 was large, with balcony and sea view. We did not find the railway in between the beach and the h...

Minutes from badalona rail station with connections to and from the airport for only €3.60, a beach opposite the hotel and plenty of restaurants and shops, a bit tight for space in the bathroom but usable. The staff were friendly and helpful even printed my boarding pass free of charge by email. I will use this hotel again.

My husband and I stayed at the Miramar from Thursday 17 until Sunday 20 November. We had Room 336 which is right at the front with a lovely balcony with fab views. It is a large room, with two comfy beds, a sofa which opens into a bed, television and a nice sized shower room. There was a proper hairdryer, not one of those wall attached things that don't work properly. At this time of year, the room was only €88 per night which I thought was very reasonable. Everything is just a little bit faded and it probably needs a bit of a touch-up; for instance, there was some wallpaper falling off the wall behind the curtain in our room but it is right on the sea and they probably have a big problem with damp. But, it was clean. The staff were friendly and helpful as well. Other reviews have mentioned the noise; because it was November, we had the window shut and we did not hear a thing, even the trains. But, even with the window open, they do not run during the night although I think they start quite early. We did not have breakfast in the hotel but can recommend two places. One is La Granja located in C/Prim (out of the hotel, left and left again, and up a few hundred yards on the right) where they do a great bacon and cheese sandwich with hot chocolate. The second place is El Grevol located on Santa Madrona, same as the hotel (left out of the hotel and up a few hundred yards on the left). We chose this hotel because it was close to Barcelona (about 15 minutes to Plaza Catalyuna) but we were also visiting friends who live in Badalona. The general location of the hotel is great; right on the front with loads of bars on the promenade. Sunday was a lovely sunny morning and the whole world and was out with wife, kids, grannies, etc. A really lovely atmosphere.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 336.

We stayed in hotel Miramar Badalona near Barcelona from 17 to 20th of August.
This Hotel is ideally situated on a pedestrianized palm tree avenue by the Badalona beach, using the subway right in front of the hotel to go under the railway line. So early morning swim, breakfast, train to Barcelona, sightseeing, back early eking, another swim and out for dinner in one of the restaurant nearby.
Reasonably priced, 5 minutes’ walk to mainline station and a 10 minute ride to the centre of Barcelona. The station is in Zone 1 so if you have a Barcelona card, it is valid for this journey.
The hotel itself is clean and the rooms are reasonably furnished. A good buffet breakfast is available every morning. I found the guy at the reception very helpful, when making an enquiry or if you need help. We had a room on 3rd floor with balcony; passing trains did not spoil our sleep.
Although the hotel advertises Wi-Fi in rooms and you have this big blue sign outside your room “Wi-Fi Zone” Just don’t bother it frustrate you and spoils a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room on 3rd floor.

All in all a superb little friendly hotel with an excellent beach front location. Simple and clean with all the usual hotel room comforts (Clean towels, hair dryer, TV, air con). Staff all very friendly and gave excellent advice on local restaurants and travel.
Hotel is situated in an up-market cafe-bar promenade with beautiful palm trees along the way. Beach is truly fantastic.

We had a sea view room which was a bonus and although there is railway line running along nearby it's electric and not very noticeable. Big bonus is the rail link runs to Barcelona in minutes.

Local night life comprises of smart tapas bars which all of which drop the noise down to almost zero after 2:30am. The area is bustling between 10pm and 2am which means you can sightsee in Barcelona during the day and then carry on the day back in the comfort and safety of Badalona

To sum up a great simple clean hotel with friendly staff... Highly recommended

Room Tip: Go for a sea view balcony

The location is central but close to the train that passes by every 10-15 minutes and close to bars and coffee places (=noise). It is clean and the service acceptable. However I would have expected more for the price of 70-90 EUR.
