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 to this hotel for 3 nights.
All was good,rooms are looking ok and staff was nice.
The problem that we had is that we rented a car and we asked at reception where we can park the car.The guy at reception said that the hotel parking is full but they are colaborating with a parking just round the corner so we can leave it there .
When we left the hotel they said we have to pay 140€ for the parking,thing that was never mentioned before.I suppose is normal for some hotels to charge for the parking ,but at least i wanted to know is not for free,so I can decide what i wanted to do.
The receptionist said that his collegue made a mistake......a mistake on my money ....not happy at all with this matter.
He said he needs to call the police if we can't pay.Horrible situation
Fantastic location, asked staff various routes and nothing was to much trouble, Thank You.
Rooms very good and clean, Highly recommend hotel.
Metro station 5 minuite walk, Nou Camp 30 mins from hotel.
Las rambla 15 mins away also lots of nice restuarants near by.
We stayed here over new year. the overall design of the hotel is lovely and staff were very friendly. The location is fairly good around 23 minute walk to Las Ramblas which equates to a cheap Uber fair!
The things I didn't like about this hotel were that the room is advertised as coming with robes, however when we arrived there was only 1 robe in the room, which was then taken away the next day and never replaced!! I also understand some of the comments about tattiness as you would expect with a pure white room. There was some yellow staining around the toilet though the rest of the room was in good shape.
Probably the worst thing was the bath/shower - this was located in the middle of the room behind a see through glass screen. It was very difficult and slippery to climb in and out of the bath despite the hand rail provided (and I'm only 24!) So I wouldn't recommend for people with mobility issues!
The best thing about the hotel is the Dry Martini bar a few doors down- exceptional and not to be missed if you love cocktails!
This was the perfect location for exploring Barcelona on foot or by rail. The decor is very unique, the staff was very friendly, and the room was nice. It was especially nice being close to Las Ramblas without having to be right in it.
My husband and I came to Barcelona for a 3 night mini break, hotel staff very helpful gave map and directions to sightseeing places.
Room lovely and breakfast good. Great location walking distance to lovely eating restaurants train station very close.
Great rooftop views
