What a great hotel. A little off the beaten path but very, very nice. 5 star quality for 3.5 star pricing. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Everyone really cares and wants to help. The food in the lobby bar was good and the wifi is excellent.
Loved this hotel, very peaceful, ideal for couples or families. Great view of Barcelona . We stayed as wanted to be near to Olympic stadium as we were watching a concert. Friendly staff and gorgeous rooms .
From the moment we walked into Miramar, we knew we had made the right choice of hotel to stay in Barcelona. The staff were, helpful, courteous and friendly. We had an early check-in time which meant the possibility of having to leave our luggage and wait for our room to be announced as ready. During check-in we were first told the room was not available. Within the short time it took to show our passports, the room was made ready and we were able to unpack, relax and unwind. The bar main area is a lovely feature offering a good selection of drinks and a choice variation of tapas style food. There was also a small selection of free candies at the end of the bar, much to the delight of our young daughter. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. My only small gripe would be the choice of TV channels. With today's technology, it would be relatively easy to supply channels such as Netflix and other international streaming programs. This would be a welcome addition if it could be made available. The only negative point was our in-room phone did not work. The hotel itself is fabulous. A mixture of international holiday guests and business professionals all mix together very well in this beautiful establishment. The views from the rooms and the terraces are superb. You are treated to a unique high point vista overlooking Barcelona. A huge recommendation has to go to the staff of the Miramar who were always friendly, accommodating and helpful. This goes for the people serving at the bar to those running the front desk. We spent a total of 3 nights at the hotel. We're a family of three. For us, this was a perfect short city break thanks to the ambience, comfort and care provided by the hotel. If you want to spend that little bit more and treat yourself to a great experience, we highly recommend the Hotel Miramar.
My wife and I visited Hotel Miramar in October 2017 with our four year old son. From arrival to departure the hotel was just perfect. The staff were friendly and helpful on every occasion - entertaining my beginners Spanish before breaking out into fluent English! They directed us, arranged our airport transfer and couldn’t help enough. Our room was amazing - we booked a premium room and were stunned by how perfect it was. A huge comfy bed (plus an extra single bed for our son), a balcony overlooking the beautiful city and a bathroom fit for a king! The hotel has both indoor and rooftop outdoor pools - I think we were the only people using either! The Spa was a perfect place to relax and unwind and the restaurant and lounge were ideal to spend a few hours soaking in the sun and views with a cappuccino or a cocktail! Breakfast was immense as tends to be the case and a must when travelling with children. If you want to venture out of the hotel the open top bus stops just outside the hotel and will take you all round the city. In the evening the night time views are breath-taking. People travel to the area just for the views, so we counted ourselves lucky to have them going to bed and when waking up. My only critique (and this is being ultra critical) is that the restaurant lunch and dinner menu is quite small (two pages) which offers limited choice. The food is tasty and great for perhaps one meal for adults. We used the lounge menu more for our son (who’s not quite the fine food connoisseur just yet ;-D) We would both return without hesitation - the hotel richly deserves its 5 stars. Great venue, great views, great rooms, pools, spa and staff to finish it off. Highly recommend
We were staying at the premium suite for the first two nights and moved to deluxe room for the third night. Needless to say the suit was spectacular with the Marina view. But th Deluxe units were as beautiful. The details in the room furniture was of excellence. The staff are super friendly. we were just a bit disappointed about the breakfast. I would expected more options and fresher alternatives that would match the excellence of the rooms and other services.
We've just got back from a 3 night stay at Hotel Miramar and could not fault it. The hotel itself is beautiful, well looked after and immaculately clean. The staff are amazing - all reception staff are friendly and offer good advice on things to do in Barcelona. Pool area was lovely and inside spa/pool were great. The hotel is a bit out of the way so you will need to use a taxi to get around. However, the tourist sight seeing buses stop right outside the hotel. A special thank you to guest relations for organising cava and chocolates for my birthday - it was much appreciated! Would definitely recommend.
I have been in Barcelona numerous times and this is my first time staying at Miramar Hotel. I can only say this hotel is one of the best in the area if not the best if you consider the open space and luck of traffic you get here, and on top of that, it's by the Montjuic a must see destination, don't forget about Tibidabo too.
We stayed in a premium suite and had the corner unit. It was the best view in the city, We could see the port from one side and the city from the other. I would say that if you are not into visiting each and every palace in the city or Europe, this pretty much covers it and you do not have to visit Montjuic. You can still take a cable car (located 5 minutes walking distance from the Hotel), that will take you around the mountain and to the palace. We did not take it as we are more of City experience folks and we have seen enough palaces. Now the best part: When I booked the hotel first, I was horrified that this will be an expensive commute to central areas like La Rambla, Passage de Garcia, Gothic Quarter etc. So basically, each trip costing around 20 EUR one way. However, a big shout-out to my man "Robert" for giving us an overview of how to get around in the city. Montjuic is connected to the Barcelona Metro/Subway system via another train called Funicular (5 minutes walk from the hotel). So all you have to do, is get into the Funicular and you are part of the Metro system, i.e. you can use the same ticket for metro. That was a big win for us, because we already had Ola Barcelona - 3 day Metro Pass. One thing to keep in mind, if you are changing metro lines, be sure to leave some gap in your schedule. We had a 3 year old and a stroller so sometimes, catching the subway and going to places like Gothic Quarter (you need to change the metro line for that) would be around 45 mins. Yupp, going to Montjuic to anywhere around the city will take time, but we think that the amazing views and the hotel experience compensated for it. You can also skip the Funicular and walk downhill yourself to the nearest metro station (~12 minutes). Food wise: I won't rate it at the top. I have had better meals and breakfasts at 4/3 star places. But we usually go for the city experience and eat out, se I did not mind it. The location will make you forget that piece. I will however take 0.5 points away for that (the 4 points overall rating that I am giving, is actually 4.5 points). Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our son really enjoyed the place because of the amazing views (cruise ships, tug-boats etc.). We even went for evening walks around the back of the hotel to catch some really stunning views of the city. You can actually see the entire city from there (i.e. top of Sagrada Familia etc.) Barcelona was the last destination in our trip to Spain. The hotel experience really contributed towards us enjoying the last 3 days instead of feeling depressed because we were nearing the end of our trip.
Expected that "little extra" for a 5 star hotel and we spent a lot of money for our honeymoon. Would more say it's a 3-4 star hotel. Couldn't get fresh vegetables for breakfast when we asked for it(!!!) We're vegetarians and there was a lot of meat at the buffé. We had a suite, but no fresh flowers or any other nice details. No good cleaning in our room. Chocolat on the floor for a whole week. Had to ask for fresh wine glasses. Had to ask for new pillows to our balcony chairs, they had suddenly disappeared. Nice and helpfull staff in the reception though!
We had the most amazing stay at Hotel Miramar Barcelona. We visited for my birthday and there was a bottle of cava waiting on ice for us in the room. The room was gorgeous, just like rest of the hotel, and we had an amazing view over the sea. We arrived from Madrid before check-in time so our room wasn't ready, but the staff was SO friendly and SO helpful. They securely stored our bags and helped us to plan lunch and book tickets for Park Guell until our room was ready. They also helped us to reserve a table at the hotel's restaurant, Forestier, to celebrate my birthday. I'm really disappointed that I can't remember their names; otherwise I would shout them out by name because they were just so wonderful. The only tiny gripe I have is that service to the room was very, very slow -- if they came at all. We had to call for an iron, for more toilet paper, etc., and the iron took at least an hour to be delivered (I had to call twice more) and I eventually had to snag a roll of toilet paper from a maid's cart (sorry!). Other than that, the service was impeccable and our stay was amazing beginning to end. We recommend the hotel to all of our friends traveling to Barcelona. Thank you!
