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
We stayed here for 4 nights, it’s more in the residential area of Barcelona, so it’s an hours walk to the port or taxi for about €10, it’s a very bright & clean Hotel with spectacular views from our room on the top floor, some bits were a bit tired, most of the staff were very friendly and helpful 👍🏼 Pillows were a bit too soft 😂 Would recommend this Hotel, Not much open around on a Sunday though, we didn’t eat in the restaurant, so cant really comment on the food.
While I was not staying at this hotel, 4 of my friends were, so we would meet up at the hotel bar. The rooms were very modern, a bit small but very clean. The hotel staff was wonderful, so friendly and helpful. We ponied up to the bar many times during our 10 day stay.
Stayed 4 nights. Quirky room and obviously mirrors everywhere. Nice rooftop pool (albeit small) and sauna room. Didn't opt for breakfast as loads of little cafes close by. Great location and close to Metro and short walk to Las Rambles. Hotel was a bit tired but clean and staff very helpful.
An amazing quirky hotel the mirrors and the decor makes this hotel a memorable place to stay. The staff are excellent very welcoming and friendly and go out of their way to help. The breakfast is amazing, great choice, very fresh and tasty. The location is great, it's very near the metro and some lovely restaurants. Highly recommended.
Lovely hotel in the heart of Barcelona. Very helpful front desk and walking distance to tapas restaurants. Breakfast looked nice but not included and very expensive.Room was very comfortable and clean. Specify if u want a tub as not all rooms have one.
