A charming new hotel in Barcelona, located next to the emblematic Montjuïc Gardens. Formerly a palace, the hotel has been carefully restored to create an elegantlyfurbished hotel that will make your stay a unique and unforgettable experience. The palace was built between 1927 and 1928 by the architect Ramón Raventós, and opened by King Alfonso XIII in 1929 to celebrate the Universal Exhibition in Barcelona. The landscaped area surrounding the hotel and most of Montjuic, that was laid out by Forestier for the Exhibition, contains species of vegetation, flowers and trees that are mostly Mediterranean in origin.
In 1929 Miramar was turned into a restaurant, and hosted a countless number of elegant banquets up until 1959, when TVE, Televisión Española (the Spanish Television), started broadcasting from Catalonia, and set up its headquarters here.
In 1983 the television studios moved to Sant Cugat and, inexplicably, the building fell into a state of neglect. Over the last three years this emblematic landmark has been rehabilitated, and converted into a luxury hotel that, thanks to its stunning location, dominates Barcelona. The five star hotel is located in one of Barcelona?s landmark areas, next to the Montjuïc Gardens and to Costa i Llobera, a palace that has been lovingly restored, using the criteria to provide the luxury, privacy and charm. From the hotel you can enjoy panoramic views over the city and the Mediterranean Sea.
