“Excellent little hotel by the sea near Barcelona and away from the tourists”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

I stayed at the Mirmar this weekend as I was going to Badalona for a friend's birthday party and we all stayed there. Badalona is a dormitary town 15 mins by train from the centre of Barcelona and the hotel is the only one by the beach. There are hardly any tourists there and Badalona has not been converted into a mini Bendorm despite it's very big beach maybe because of the railway line next to it. However from the hotel you just go across the road and under the tunnel to reach it. The hotel is simple, clean and cheap with comfortable rooms. It is a very good 3 star hotel which offers free and good working wifi and an excellent breakfast for just 10 euros. On top of that you can use the swimming pool at the yachting club opposite and which has direct access to the beach for just 3 euros. The hotel also provides free towels. All in all it is an unpretentious well run and clean hotel - albeit no lift to the top floor but there are only 3 floors - right by a relatively empty beach. Badalona itself has a great shopping street in Calle de Mar and the train station is between 5 and 10 mins walk along the very pleasant Rambla. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Get a room with a view to the sea and preferably with a terrace

we have just returned from this hotel. we stayed from 31st Aug to 1st Sept. It was a small hotel. staff friendly and helpful. especially the night clerk. We had a sea view room which I wold recommend as you can see the sunrise and watch everyone on the ramblas in the evening, It is also lovely to have time lay on the beach which is less than 5mins from the hotel. we didn't have breakfast in the hotel we took a travel kettle and bought croissants for breakfast every morning. I would highly recommend anyone who has to phone that downloads apps to get the Barcelona Metro offline it only cost about 69p and it well get you around on the metro without any effort, I would recommend Barcelona and Miramar hotel to everyone

we stayed here in april 2012 when visiting barcelona and this was a very lovely hotel, we had a front facing room which was clean and had a lovely view of the beach. the staff were very helpful and friendly, the sports bar a few doors away was a little noisey until about 2-3am on the friday and saturday night but as we were on holiday we didn't mind. 1 minute walk to the lovely sandy beach and busy promanade, lots of cheap places to eat, 5 minutes walk to the train which was good value and only 20 mins to les ramblas barcellona, we had a 4 day travel ticket and we travelled all over ,the trains are very clean and crowd free. a very good value stay that could have been very expensive if we had stayed in barcellona. we would deffinately stay here again.

The location alone is worthy of 5*s for us, let alone the beautiful rooms, beautiful decor and very helpful staff. we couldn't comment on the food as we didn't bother, however there are plenty of places to eat nearby. Ensure you get a sea view because its amazing to wake up to the sunrise. also, ensure your on the 3rd/4th floor, it will be worth it! 10min walk from the metro and the train station too. the restaurants on the sea front can get really busy over the weekend and each restaurant only have around 2/3 porters (in some cases 1) so getting served can take a while, i would recommend finding restaurants away from the sea front. A great hotel all round!

Room Tip: MAKE SURE - SEA VIEW ON 3/4TH FLOOR - when i arrived i asked if we could get a room upgrade, as he m...

My friend and I stayed here last August on a last minute deal. The location was brilliant-right on the beach front and we had sea views from our room (a twin room). It was very easy to find the hotel from the train station and Badalona was only a 20minute/15 minute train ride into the centre of Barcelona. We travelled into Barcelona every day of our 5 day trip and felt completely comfortable to be on the train late at night (even though we were two young women). The beach was lovely and the sea was the perfect place to cool down in the sun. I have very fond memories when thinking of this hotel and would recommend to others as the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely little hotel right by the sea. Our room (twin) was a nice size with views of the ocean. Everything was very clean and the staff were friendly. Badalona is just on the outskirts of the main part of Barcelona and is right by the train station so it’s an easy 15 min journey to the main sites. It’s nice to get out of the bustle of the main part of Barcelona. The hotel is on a long road by the sea and there are plenty of restaurants and a lovely palm tree-lined avenue. The only thing is it’s a bit less touristy so you may need a couple of phrases to get you by as there seems to be less English speakers there. It’s actually quite nice; it’s very easy to be lazy with your catalan in Barcelona because there’s so much tourism. Go to Badalona and flex your linguistic muscles. Very good value hotel and exactly what we needed.

Room Tip: We had a twin room that had a lovely view of the sea

My partner and I stayed for 6 nights in May, was a stones throw from the beach, about an hour from the airport by train and 20 mins to centre of Barcelona. The staff were all excellent, friendly and very helpful, nothing seemed too much trouble. There is no English tv channel, this is an observation to assist people and not a complaint, the rooms were a bit dated and noise could be heard from next door. However, our room was cleaned to an excellent standard. The bed wasn't the comfiest. We stayed room only so cannot comment on food. Restaurants and cafes are close by and so are the supermarkets or small shops. Although the beach is right on the doorstep. We found it a shame that despite the no dog signs the locals seemed to totally ignore this leting dogs foul the beach. This is the only downside we could think of and overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recomend the hotel to anyone wanting to combine city and beach. The train line is right outside and the noise never affected our stay, Badalona station is a 5 min walk to the hotel. Lovely promenade to walk along in an evening. Cost 8 euro by train from airport to the hotel and was easy to do via Sants station.
