“Poor value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013 via mobile

The interiour design is unique and impressive but the quality and service is poor.

Our room was oddly shaped, barely any natural light and rather dirty and shabby looking. There is no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms and reception won't supply a kettle. Also, the shower and toilet have a glass door so anyone else in the room can watch you doing your business. Location is pretty far from beaches and attractions.

A neat, comfortable and a little quirky designed place to stay. The staff was helpful in recommending restaurants and another hotel when we were going to leave for a few nights to go to Bilbao and there was no vacancy at the Mirror one of two nights we needed in returning to Barcelona. Only negatives: it's a little bit out of the way from the happening areas and there is not even a minimal office center/computer & printer for doing on line tickets or boarding passes.

Just taken my 14 year old daughter on her first city break. A total success! The Mirror was her first hotel experience and it certainly made an impact on her! She loved the modern white design and the fact that ther cherubs are wearing Converse! Staff very helpful, spa and roof top pool lovely. The hotel is very well located giving easy access to both tourist attractions and lesser know tapas bars and quirky shops around Placa del Sol. Thank you!

Stayed last night in Barcelona in the Mirror and enjoyed the white design experience.Standard rooms are excellent in design and fitness for purpose. The bed was very comfortable and on the second floor it was very quiet. Staff were very helpful and recommended a restaurant that we were lucky enough to get into (Cerveceria Catalana). It provided a fitting last night experience in Barcelona.

This hotel is very clean and comfortable and ideally situated close to the Ramblas but in a fairly quiet area. The walls are sound proofed so there was no noise from other guests and none from the street outside. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. However, I was a little dismayed to find that I had to have a wash in the 'corridor' of the bedroom. The basin was situated just opposite the wardrobes. Also, the shower door was see through; and so there was no privacy to wash/shower at all. For this reason I have given it a 4 star rating. So, for those of you who are broadminded and don't mind washing/showering in full view of each other, this hotel is perfect.

Stayed at The Mirror recently with four friends, two in each room. I was a little apprehensive having read other reviews, but it was lovely. The room was lovely and clean, nicely laid out. I suppose if you were shy it could be a bit embarrassing when taking a shower, but the rooms are large enough that you can be doing some else rather than looking through the shower screen! Ideally located for sight seeing. Lovely bar a few doors down. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Didn't eat at the hotel, lots of places to eat nearby. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Lovely rooms we had rooms with a terrace I wouldn't pay for them again. They overlooked the family neighbourhood flats or should I say they looked on us. The rooms were very well equipped, nicely decorated (very modern) and the shower was very good. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful and recommended places to eat. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel as it was 22 euro's each but there are lots of cafe's around doing breakfast for 5 euro's. Air con/heating is controlled by receptionist which is a bit unusual. My sons room was set at 15 degrees and the first night he was cold even though we had thought we had turned the room stat up but they don't work in the room you have to ask the receptionist to alter it on the computer. Metro stop is not too far so although Hotel not in the middle of the razzmatazz it is quite close to all the sights.

Room Tip: We had a room at the back of the hotel but a room at the front would be just as quiet as it is on a...
