“Not exactly the hotel we were looking for”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

I can say it was interesting... different, but not exactly what i call a nice hotel. The room was small, with no door for shower and no privacy. The shower walls were transparent inside and outside the room. Good view for the neighbors and for us, from our shower :)
Rooms has no windows to open, so there was not fresh air.
And the hallway is dark, with red lights. Interesting overall.
Breakfast was good and the staff was friendly.
And the location is good, near Las Ramblas.

Room Tip: No windows to open, no shower door and transparent walls, but clean, white, with a very good bed to...

Very interesting old theatre transformed into a hotel. All the communal areas are very good but we don't think we'd spend more than one night in the open plan room. Nowhere to put a case. Hardly any room to get into bed. Worth looking at the design though... Maybe we're too old!

Room Tip: Get one where the bed is smaller than the room!

Acta Mimic has a great location around 2 blocks away from Las Ramblas. Staff was very nice and helpful. Rooms are great for couples, very clean and decoration is very modern. Breakfast itself and breakfast area is really good. We would definitely stay here again.

Modern clean stylish hotel near las Ramblas / place de la Catalunya. Nice breakfast. No doubt I will go back there when I am in Barcelona again. Worth the money!! Near the Harbour as well. Bed and pillows are nice.

The hotel is located in a very quiet area, 5 min walk from the La Ramblas, 15 min walk from the Barceloneta area and it connected with metro line L3.
The hotel offers pretty good prices. it was the cheapest bed and breakfast offer I found for a couple so I didn't expect too much :)
We were in the 5th floor and however we got a huge window wall, it was unnecessary because we had no view and we needed to close the curtain because the window was in front of a building.
Also there is no ventilation in the room or in the bath and toilet area.
The room is well designed with the glass shower area but since it's not separated well, the water steam stick to the walls and floor all over the room and lake of ventilation cause fungi and mold.
The bed wasn't a real bed. They took 2 single bed on whiles and put a big mattress on. So it wasn't too stable.
The service was very good. The room was cleaned every day and the reception people where very nice.
The breakfast had a lot of options and was in good quality.

So in average, the hotel need to improve the rooms a bit but in general we enjoyed our staying.

The hotel is located at a good spot, just about 5-8 mins walk from the Ramblas or the port. The room is much nicer than I expected, spacious and bright.

The cons, you might want to consider:
The room had its bathroom on the ground floor with the air conditioner being on the top floor, it was impossible to warm up the bathroom. Also there was no door on the shower cabin.
Airco controlling unit was not controlling the temperature properly. At the setting of 17 C, it was around 26 C in the room.
There was no possibility to open a window when it got too hot.

Anyway, I would recommend it, it's a nice place to stay, especially at this price, and you have free wifi too.

This hotel is great and easy to access everything Barcelona has to offer. When we arrived, we found the shower to be blocked. After informing reception, this was resolved within a couple of hours. The breakfast was delicious and the lounge area was a great place to relax. The only issue we had was with the steam from the shower making everything damp as there was no exhaust fans in the room.
