The Miramar did not disappoint and my husband and I had a short stay here. Staff were very friendly and helpful, for example the concierge sorted out a problem with our 'private taxi' from the airport which we had pre-paid but the driver was insisting we had to pay him too. The Concierge explained to the driver that our paperwork stated we had paid in advance. Problem sorted!
All the staff were friendly and very attentive. The rooms were spacious and clean. Not so sure about the curtain dividing the sleeping area from the bathroom, and yes you can here your partner very clearly using the toilet.
Breakfast was short on choice but tasty. We had dinner in the restaurant, extremely good food but helpings were small and overall expensive for what we had.
The hotel has fabulous views of the port, marina and city. Be aware though that the container port is next to the cruise/ferry port.
We highly recommend using the tour bus to see Barcelona, and the stop across the street from the hotel. It's a hop on/hop off bus and there are 3 different routes. The hotel is on the red route. We loved being to stop where we wanted and saw a lot of the city which we would not normally have seen. The bus has free wi-fi too and an audio guide (in many languages) which was informative.
The cable car is next to the hotel but a bit pricey to go down to the port/marina. There is the Miramar restaurant which is reasonably priced (next to the cable car) and a bar/restaurant to the right of the hotel which did do drinks and food at lower prices, plus the views are great.
We had a late flight and rather than booking our room for a late check out, we were guided to the spa where the lockers could fit in our luggage (cabin size) and use the facilities. We spent the day sunbathing by the outside pool (flies a bit of a problem) and then showered and changed before going to the airport. There was no cost for using the spa or its changing facilities.
Overall we would recommend this hotel for a short stay and it is in a great position to sightsee Barcelona.
