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
What a great looking hotel in a fab location! Was a little worried when we booked however on arrival we were made to feel welcome and the hotel looked quirky and different. This is a great location too we walked to Las Ramblas and the beach everyday.
Staff is very helfpul, breakfast is great, rooms are ok. Definitely not enough towels in the bathrooms and be careful when the floor gets wet, you can break your neck as it is more than slippery. I have written the hotel about this but never had a reply. Due to the danger of the slippery floor I would not come back
From first entry the hotel is surprising, the aesthetics is wonderful, the attention to detail is great, the rooms are super comfortable, elegant and with everything you need and more for an excellent stay in Barcelona.
The service of the hotel staff was very helpful, from the desk to the room services, all very attentive, cordial and friendly, the best from the day of entry to the day of departure.
I would definitely go back.
The moment I walked into The Mirror Barcelona I instantly felt calm and relaxed. Decorated in all white and mirrors with a beautiful splash of Angel statues watching over you in various positions around the building. The staff are the best I've come across in my travels, friendly, informed, generous in nature and some with the best sense of humour!
My superior double room with terrace was amazing, clean and so very comfortable, The continental breakfast is delicious and generous. The roof top pool and deck although small is a lovely place to relax. I highly recommend The Mirror and will be back. My travel was actually in August 2016.
A really nice hotel, if a bit quirky. Most of the decor is white but very stylish. Room was nice, clean and bright. Aircon wasn’t great, very noisy and ineffective. Staff were very friendly. Situated about a 20 minutes walk from Las Rambla in a lovely part of the city. We didn’t eat at the hotel. All in all, very nice stay.
