Hotel Miramar Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain
Imagine gazing out over beautiful Barcelona, the Mediterranean glistening in the distance, while you bask in the hot tub on your private terrace. At the Hotel Miramar Barcelona, such luxurious living is just another day. Part of LVX collection of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, this beautiful hotel was originally a palace built in the 1920's, and has been redesigned with a sleek modern style while retaining all the palatial elegance while preserving the original facade of an old palace. The 75 rooms, decorated in pure whites and dark earth tones, provide you with amazing views from the picture windows or private balconies. With plush linens, stand-alone tubs, and all the modern technology you desire, the Hotel Miramar is truly a masterpiece of harmony between classical and modern styles.
Set above the vibrant Las Ramblas district, the Hotel Miramar is just a short trip from amazing sights and eclectic culture. Walk down La Rambla and marvel at the multitude of street performers while shopping for luxury brands. Or stop at La Boqueria, the premier market for fresh foods in Barcelona. Here you can browse for amazing fresh produce and meats, or sit at one of the restaurant stalls and sample some delicious tapas. If you just want a small sample of La Boqueria, try one of the juice stalls for some refreshment before you continue your journey. Stroll through the Gothic Quarter to find some great cafes and marvel at the architecture of the great cathedral. After a long journey return to the hotel to unwind in the spa with a deep tissue massage, or ice water bath. Complete the night with a meal indulging your palate with a menu of Catalan and Mediterranean cuisines, as well as a list of fine European wines to pair with. Or perhaps recline next to the pool and delight in a cocktail from the poolside bar.

Reviews for Hotel Miramar Barcelona
The photo of the elegant pink pillared facade of the hotel gives a misleading impression - on both sides and behind it is an ultra modern establishment, very sleek inside, the exterior rather harsh with black facings. The outlook over the port (where we could see our cruise ship moored) and the City to the north is lovely. It's about a 15 minute walk downhill to the Rambla, the centre of life in Barcelona. Our room was on the south corner of the 5th floor with the aforesaid view and also overlooking the garden and large, inviting swimming pool. Very spacious and well appointed room, comfortable bed. Regrettably we found that the phone did not work, despite 3 visits from hotel personnel, so we had to go down to reception several times to ask for things. The light on the large balcony also was inoperative . The fine big walk-in shower leaked profusely onto the bathroom floor and, first time, into the the corridor of the room. After that, we placed towels strategically to stop the flow. The woodwork round the base of the bathroom door was rotten, so this must have been a long term problem. In the morning, despite several attempts by both of us, we could not get the big blind over the bathroom window to go up. A chambermaid did it with a special "tweak". At breakfast we experienced a pathetic attempt at English tea - warm water poured into large mugs, tea bags which burst on being stirred! We know that the Continentals by and large find tea-making a bit problematical, but one might reasonably expect that a 5 star hotel would have mastered the art by now! We had coffee instead. We reported these problems and had an interview with the charming manager who promptly cancelled our "extras" bill - a few drinks, and he sent up a bottle of wine. He seemed inclined to make a deduction from the bill but said that as we had booked through Booking.com this was too difficult. I usually try to book with hotels direct for this reason. The terrace in front of the pink facade, overlooking gardens and the port, is very pleasant for drinks. Provided you can avoid the problems we had, it's a lovely place to stay.
Great room with very comfortable large bed and a large balcony overlooking the whole Barcelona. Great bartenders who made us Gin & Tonics. The breakfast was great but the dinners a bit tastaless. Will return!
A modern hotel with all the amenities, including L'Occitane en Provence products. Jonathan and Cinzia made sure everything I needed was taken care of and more. I hid away in a corner of the Forestier restaurant eating lunch and working for hours, with a view of the harbour. In the afternoon I went for a swim in the indoor pool and then a sauna and spa. The whole event was relaxing and enjoyable.

We arrived at about 3.30pm very hungry and ordered a snack from the bar. After waiting about 45 minutes the food appeared but it was just warm not hot. No reason given for the delay. We sent the food back and replacement food arrived which was not particularly good. When we returned to our room after an evening out we found that the room had not been turned down nor the towels replaced. Unfortunately the room phone was not working and I had to run down to reception. They told me that the battery in the phone was not working, my response was that it wasn't my fault and the receptionists response was that it wasn't hers either!! Sadly after another 20 minutes of waiting for the turn down service I had to go back to reception to remind them that we were still waiting. The rooms were quite spacious but on close inspection were not particularly clean and indeed the settee was soiled. We would not choose the Miramar again, there must be better options in Barcelona.

We had a 2 night stay in the Miramar, they were kind to upgrade us to a suite. The hotel has a view overlooking Barcelona - 20- 30 min walk down to the city , a taxi ride on the way back . Rooms were modern spacious, good size terrace overlooking the bay. There is a pool area with lots of open space to chill out, we also like the spa - with various water features. It is a great choice if you want to stay away from the hustle of the city.
