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.
How to Get There
Stayed here for one night, the staff was very nice, friendly & welcoming. The room was clean and felt a bit like a luxury shop because of the mirrors and shelving. But by the bed the wall padding felt a bit as if I was in a nut house ???? because it is white the place could do with a facelift due to wear and tear. However, I had the BEST night sleep, their bed is sooooooooo comfortable. And I found that this hotel has the BEST channels. I watched some really good movies. Oh, and a TV in the toilet which I found quite cool.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from 3 nights and 4 days at this lovely hotel.
We arrived at 10am and were able to check in early to our room. The room was so nice, big and the bed very comfortable. A few minutes after a waiter bought two glasses of prossecco to the room as it was a trip for my boyfriends birthday.
The rooftop pool was amazing. The views were lovely, it was so quiet that most the time it felt like our own private pool!
There is a metro station about 30 seconds from the hotel, but me and my boyfriend were lazy and got taxis everywhere. A taxi to the pier was about 11 euros each way. The staff were very helpful however letting us know what metro to take and how many stops etc.
The only slight let down was the air conditioning. I believe during our stay a fault happened with the entire hotel. Luckily a lovely staff memeber called Diego got us a brand new cooler room sorted for us. Diego was very helpful our entire trip, and nothing was too much of an ask!
On our final day, our flight wasn’t until the evening. After checkout we were still able to use all of the hotel facilities and store our bags.
The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the hotel itself looks amazing, comfy big rooms and a amazing pool.
100% will be returning and recommending to friends! Thank you for such a nice trip
We booked at the last minute and really enjoyed our stay. Super friendly staff and the breakfast buffet was excellent, for the money, this was clean, welcoming and delivered on all it promised. Cool decor and efficiently run - we enjoyed our stay and long breakfasts v much.
