“Could not fault the service”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Probably the best service ive ever had in a hotel anywhere in the world. Room was fantastic, fluffy towels and robes. L'occitane toiletries, a huge double bath and you cant beat the view. A bit out of town but it commands one of the best locations in Barca and every taxi driver knows it. Yes there is a funny smell in the corridor in parts of the hotel, yes its an easy walk around the park or into town and yes there are two hop-on hop-off bus services right outside.

Stayed for 1 week in a premium double room (516). Bedroom and bathroom spacious and clean with ample storage. But some points of detail. The bath mixer tap did not mix the hot/cold and was not fitted well. The provision of toiletries was interestingly hit and miss - some days this and other days that regardless of actual use. The television was fixed on a wall beside the bed and to access the latter it was essential to bend sideways to avoid a nasty collision (I could never work out why it had been so located!) but did slightly spoil what was otherwise a very comfortable room. The balcony was superb overlooking both city and sea. Restaurant okay but needed a design overhaul and decoration - it just did not sparkle!. Breakfast was more than just acceptable but not perhaps the variety of a true 5*. All staff superb in every sense of the word but especially so in reception. I say this because I became a victim of a Barcelona pickpocket and the reception staff were unstintingly supportive - and apologetic on behalf of their country. The hotel is wonderfully located but half way up a mountain - but you get the hand of it after a couple of days. Overall, I thoroughly recommend the Miramar.

Room Tip: Take a room at the front of the hotel and especially one that overlooks both city and sea

Nothing wrong with this hotel - we had read some slightly negative comments on Trip Advisor but my partner and I had very enjoyable experience here.

Service from the staff was simply first class. You can tell that the management team has drilled discipline and quality into the staff here. Not one person let the side down in the five days we were here - the welcoming glass of Cava when you check in was a particular nice touch. Well done!

The location of the hotel is not as central as other hotels we have stayed at in Barcelona but the benefit is the fantastic view you get of Barcelona from the hotel and surrounding pathways. The hotel is still easily within walking distance of the main attractions though - a 5 to 10 minute walk down the steps at the foot of the hotel terrace and along the main road at the bottom will have you at the bottom of La Rambla - so unless you struggle with walking then accessing the attractions on foot from this hotel is not a problem. You are better off doing this than walking up the hill to take the funicular down to Paral-lel - the walk to the station is 5 to 10 mins uphill and then if you miss a train you will be waiting for 10 minutes at the station for the next one.

The room we had was great - we were on the side that overlooked the harbour so we had a great view. Luxurious standalone bath and powerful separate shower were great (although we had intermittent problems with hot water (luke warm at best) on our last two mornings which other people were complaining about when we checked out).

We had read comments about the shooting range which is next to the hotel and I made a point of asking on check-in whether the room was on the opposite side which the receptionist confirmed was the case. They clearly do have issues with this as the receptionist knew exactly what I was talking about when I asked - upon leaving the hotel one morning and walking up the hill you can clearly here the guns going off loudly so I would make sure you ask about this when you check in and pack a pair of ear plugs just in case you end up on the wrong side! However, on the side of the hotel we were on we were not troubled by this at all.

We didn't eat either breakfast or dinner at the hotel as we generally prefer to find somewhere cheaper and better value for money. We did have drinks each night though which were not cheap but you have to expect that at a hotel like this - I don't have any particular issue with paying €12 for a Mojito in a hotel.

Overall a great hotel with great service.

Room Tip: Rooms on the side facing the harbour are not affected by nearby shooting range noise

I was treated to a stay here by my family as a birthday present. The hotel is on the side of a mountain with an amazing view of the harbour and the city. Maybe a bit difficult if you have walking difficulties getting into the city itself but saying that there are many taxis available and there is a cable car just outside the hotel. Dont do this hotel on a budget it wont work, barcelona is like most major cities in the world...not cheap ..saying that, if you looked, reasonably priced food etc can be found.
We stayed bed and breakfast and breakfast was stunning, huge choice, beautifully prepared and full of flavour, cold meats, cheese, bread of many types, cooked, pastries and cakes, cereals, fresh fruit, coffee, tea and juices.
Rooms were spacious with magnificent bathrooms, large shower, very large bath and a toilet.
Staff were impeccable, efficient, polite and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
There are two swimming pools, an outside for a warm day with bar and food and a heated indoor one for more serious swimmers.
Ive given this hotel 5 stars because quite frankly i could not fault it .....
its very close to shops and the city centre and all that has to offer, if you have any interest at all in food you must visit the food market of off Las Ramblas it is a truly awe inspiring experience as is the gaudi cathedral..
If i can afford it i will definitely come back to this hotel and this magnificent city...
Highly recommended ..

We couldn't have been happier with this hotel. The staff were the nicest I've ever encountered in all of my travels and the view is amazing. I highly recommend it. Yes the hill was a challenge after a day of walking around the city but it was worth it.

The hotel, the bedroom and facilities are amazing. Really beautiful and top class.
However, there are a few downsides to the hotel.
First of all the price of food there is ridiculous! There was no way we were going to eat in the hotel when there are so many wonderful restaurants to eat in, at far better value.
Secondly, while the views are wonderful, it is a bit out of town and up a very steep hill. If you're touring all day it's the last thing you want to see!
That brings me in to my final point, if you are going on holiday to Barcelona, which I highly recommend, you won't be spending very much time in the hotel, there is so much to see and do that a more central and reasonably priced hotel may be more suitable. No point paying for amazing facilities if you're not going to use them. Barcelona isn't the place you go to sit by a hotel pool for a week.
But the hotel is stunning, the staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful and the breakfast was very nice!

Amazing 5 Star luxury in a perfect location with 5 star service. We stayed here for 3 nights for our anniversary. We honestly could not fault anything about the hotel and service. The staff couldn't be more helpful especially Mark on Reception who organised most of our trips and sightseeing expeditions!! The hotel setting is breath-taking as it is on the top of a hill overlooking the whole of Barcelona, The location is great, perfect for us and not too far away from most of the sights. you can get a taxi, cable car, bus or metro from the hotel very easily and it only takes 10-15 minutes to walk down. The city of Barcelona is an absolute Gem, so much to see and do and culture at every turn and obviously the Gaudi influence is all around. Must see sights are the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell , Art museum near the Olympic stadium and try and see a match if you can at FCB. Oh and the Beach and harbour area are stunning.
