I stayed in Hotel Miramar for ten nights in March 2014. I visited Lanzarote to view all that it had to offer. I had decided that Arrecife would be my base due to the fact that the main bus terminal on the island is in Arrecife. I viewed hotel reviews on this site and others and decided that Hotel Miramar would suit my needs. I simply needed somewhere to sleep and shower. I did not intend to spend much of my waking hours in the hotel.
I slept excellently while staying in Hotel Miramar. There was no problems with noise. Most of the other guests seemed to be short term guests on business. The time of year that I stayed was not the peak time for tourists.
The room was clean. I had booked a single room but received a double room at no extra cost. There were two single beds and enough storage space for two peoples luggage. The bathroom was also clean and spacious. The towels and toiletries were replaced promptly. There was two problems with my room. The handle on the front door was falling off and the balcony door was broken and did not slide open. This did not bother me. I did not wish to use the balcony. It was very small and my room was at the rear of the building which did not have a view worth looking at. If views are important then you should request a room at the front of the hotel.
Hotel Miramar is on the coast. It is opposite Castillo de San Gabriel. The second street to the right seems to be the main shopping district in Arrecife. There are plenty of clothes shops for men and women. There are pharmacies and also a supermarket. A few minutes walk to the left and you will find El Charco de San Gines. A popular attraction in Arrecife, El Charco de San Gines is lined with cafes and restaurants.
Hotel Miramar is about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and it is also about a 15-20 minute walk to the bus terminals. It is possible to get a bus to and from the airport. I had to book a taxi to the airport when I was leaving. The man at the front desk organised the taxi for me. It cost about €15.
Hotel Miramar does not have all the amenities of a holiday resort. There is no pool, gym or games room. Parking is extremely limited. There is a bar and restaurant. I did not try these so I cannot comment on them. The staff in Hotel Miramar did not speak English. Not many people in Arrecife do speak English. However, the staff were nice an pleasant.
If you are single or travelling with a group of adults then Hotel Miramar will be just fine. It is cheap, clean and has free wifi. I do not recommend it for a family holiday. A night or two might be fine but definitely not a week. The hotel has nothing for children and neither does Arrecife.
