Cutting-edge crash pad studded with eye-catching sculptures in Barcelona's hip Eixample Quarter
In a coveted location in Barcelona’s Eixample quarter, close to Paseo de Gracia, the Mirror Hotel is a nine-story beacon of the city’s avant-garde style. True to its name, almost every surface is mirrored or polished white, and the property has a disorientating, otherworldly feel that’s only reinforced by the Christoph Mertens sculptures hanging and sitting in the light wells between floors. Known as the “Angels of the Mirror,” the all-white figures (in sports jackets and sneakers) are on full display as you ascend in the glass elevator up to the guestrooms.
Bed & Bath
All 63 guestrooms are as subtly playful as the public spaces, with padded white walls, mirrors on nearly every surface and chrome fixtures. The supremely comfy beds are set into white leather alcoves and face gigantic floor-to-ceiling mirrors. Shy and retiring types take note: There’s no escaping a bad hair day here. The amenities are appropriately 21st-century, from the 40-inch ultraslim plasma TVs (with 22-inch versions in the bathrooms) to the egg-shaped white swivel chairs to the glass-walled bathrooms, which have tubs or freestanding showers. Many rooms have private terraces, which offer welcome extra space (the rooms are compact despite their space-efficient layout and mirrors) and views of the interior courtyard or the busy streets of Eixample. For the best views of the city, the ninth-floor Privilege Rooms have 205-square-foot terraces and panoramic views across Barcelona; they also provide easy access to the rooftop plunge pool and sauna.
The buzzing heart of the property is on the ground floor, where the lobby bar is a lively place to sip a glass of cava. Head up to the roof to take advantage of the plunge pool and the sauna. Las Ramblas and the Barri Gotic (the Gothic Quarter) are both a short walk away for tasty local dining options.
In the Area
It’s almost impossible to get from A to B in Barcelona without crossing Las Ramblas, with its bustling congregation of street artists, mimes, jugglers, buskers, flower sellers, fortune tellers and tourists. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the Diagonal and Paseo de Gracia, Barcelona’s premier shopping belt and arguably the trendiest shopping street in Spain. In Eixample, the tree-lined street of Carrer d'Enric Granados is great for aimless strolling, as it's filled with alfresco cafés, restaurants and art galleries such as Ego Gallery and N2 Galeria. Antiques lovers should head to Muebles Ram (Carrer del Conell de Cent), a treasure trove of retro furniture, mirrors and trinkets. It’s right next door to the city’s biggest flea market, Els Encants. The hotel is a 25-minute walk from La Sagrada Familia Basílica, Antoni Gaudí’s most audacious building and Barcelona’s premier attraction.
