“Great stay at the Mirror”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Just returned after 4 nights at the Mirror booked for my husband's birthday - I had requested a room on a high floor with a view of the city, and got exactly what I asked for. The hotel is within walking distance of Diagonal metro station which means its easy to get around. Its in a quieter side street though which means you can sleep undisturbed (we had room 851 which is at the rear of the hotel - just high enough to see views of Tibidabo mountain, although be aware that there are lots of windows facing from other residential flats so if you book a room with a terrace you wont get that much privacy.) We had breakfast on day 1 - all perfectly acceptable but if you are happy with coffee and a pastry there are loads of cafes around serving this for around 2 euros which will save you money. Staff were all really helpful, room was clean and well equipped - especially great shower. We visited a restaurant called the Ceveseria Catalan in Carrer de Mallorca - recommended in our guide book - simply great Tapas and frequented by locals and tourists alike so you know its good, be prepared to wait for a table though. Thanks to everyone at the Mirror for a great stay - we hope to be back!

Room Tip: Choose a room on a higher floor and/or at the rear of the hotel for a quieter stay - but even at the...

We looked at the website and saw a really interesting looking place from a design point of view and I must admit on first impressions I thought we had chosen well as the check in staff were lovely and the room was really cool.

That's where it ended though as by the end of the stay the good work of the staff was taken away by;
- There was a horrible smell from the shower drain that we told the staff about but nothing was done about.
- When you use the bathroom at night the design of the room is such that the light shines right onto the bed and wakes up whoever is with you
- There is no kettle or any way to make a coffee/tea. Considering the cost, I would have assumed there would at least have been a kettle and when we asked we were told that only in the more "expensive rooms"

Honestly there are better places to stay for the money in Barcelona

We enjoyed our stay at the Mirror, a very different hotel to the ones we usually stay in. The style is very extream; all white & mirrors. However it works very well making the most of quite a narrow building & filling it with light. It's location is within easy walking distance to the metro & tour bus routes, we even walked to La Ramblas & the harbour. The rooms were quiet,comfortable & well equipped if a little stark. All the staff were friendly & very helpful. The breakfast was excellent & there are plenty of restaurants close by. We would definitely stay there again.

I just came back from a vacation in Barcelona and twelve nights at The Mirror Hotel. I really research hotels before I book and this one lived up to the positive reviews. From the time you check in, the desk staff are really helpful. They were never bothered my my questions about directions.
The room was immaculate and the beds and pillows were posh. The hotel staff keeps the white floors and all the mirrors shining. The hotel is just three blocks from the Metro Diagonal and there are markets and many places to eat. It's a nice sand safe neighborhood. They even had a rose in the room for St. George's Day. They'll get my business again.

Room Tip: I stayed on the sixth floor, street side and found it to be very quiet.

I chose this hotel mainly based on location and the good price offered since I had some family who was visiting the area.
The check in process went smoothly, although I thought it was a bit awkward that before they even gave me my room key, they took out a map and started showing me places. They didn't even offer yet to take our bags up to the room for us.
When I made general inquiries to the front desk about Barcelona, they were able to give good information but they didn't give as well rounded answers to my questions that a typical concierge would when it came to transport questions, opening times, etc.
The room is average. There wasn't anything about it that was special or memorable. I was annoyed that the shower and bathroom are each in separate rooms, attached to the main room. Make sure you're very comfortable with your roommate, if you have one, as the doors to neither of these rooms close all the way and are made up of frosted glass, with not all parts frosted. The shower leaked water almost to the door to the hallway a few times since the shower door does not seal at the bottom. The only way it doesn't do this is if you only use the overhead nozzle.
A big annoyance we experienced was regulating the temperature in our room. The first night, I tried to lower the temperature in my room before bed, only to wake up a few hours later very warm so I opened the window. I asked the front desk about this the next morning who told me that the thermostat was under my control. The second night I tried the same thing, happily with no problems. However on the third night, I had to call reception twice for help since the room had no air flow. He turned on something downstairs and it worked. My biggest pet peeve in hotels is when the room is stuffy and dry, and I experienced this 1.5 nights of my stay here with getting frustrated with a themostat that is supposed to be under my control.

A tip for the area- the cocktail bar Dry Martini is outstanding. There's plenty of breakfast places around the hotel where you can eat for a few EUR per person, as opposed to 17 EUR per person in the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask if the theromstat will be controlled from your room, or from the front desk, or both.

This hotel is well appointed. Me and my friends stayed her for a quick stop over and truly enjoyed the hotel. The mirrors add a fun touch and the décor and style makes for a wonderful experience. The price is right and the location is great.
