Hotel Acta Mimic Rating: 3.0 Pearls
Sants-Montjuic, Barcelona, Spain

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Central location, one street away from Las Ramblas
  • Bright, spacious bathrooms with rain showerheads
  • Free welcome drink upon arrival
  • Breakfast buffet, snacks, and cocktails at Gastro Bar
  • Quirky common spaces include lounge and outdoor dining area
  • Lovely (albeit unfurnished) rooftop terrace with city views
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel

Cons

  • Small rooms with few furnishings and tiny flat-screen TVs
  • Bathrooms have curtains instead of doors, which may make some guests uncomfortable
  • No pool or fitness center

Bottom Line

Housed in a former theater, the Hotel Acta Mimic is a boutique with a youthful, modern vibe. Quirky furnishings in vibrant hues brighten up communal spaces, but small guest rooms seem more stark than cozy. They offer few furnishings and the only natural light available comes from the bathrooms, which are separated from the bedrooms by curtains instead of doors. A funky outdoor dining area and lovely rooftop terrace (albeit unfinished) are pluses, as is the hotel's close proximity to the bustling Las Ramblas pedestrian mall. Certain streets in the immediate vicinity are a bit seedy, however, so guests should ask staff for the best routes before setting out on foot.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A central location near the southwest end of Las Ramblas, and close to the port and public transportation

The Hotel Acta Mimic is in Poble Sec, a mostly residential area near Barcelona's Port that's part of the Sants-Montjuic district. The proximity to Palau de Congressos convention center makes it convenient for business travelers, and it's located right on the neighborhood's main drag, Paral.lel, where a few small, local restaurants can be found. Las Ramblas, Barcelona's most popular thoroughfare, lined with restaurants, bars, and shops, is within walking distance. There are also two metro lines near the hotel (Drassanes and Parallel).

Guests should be warned: the alley known as (Calle) Arc del Teatre -- which leads straight onto Las Ramblas from the hotel -- is a little seedy. It can be avoided altogether by following a slightly longer route via Drassanes Avenue. Ask at the hotel for directions.

  • 15-minute drive or 55-minute bus ride to Barcelona El Prat Airport (BCN)
  • 12-minute walk or 4-minute drive to Columbus Monument
  • 14-minute walk or 5-minute drive to Town Hall
  • 14-minute walk or 5-minute drive to Gothic Quarter
  • 15-minute walk or 7-minute drive to Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art
  • 5-minute drive or 11-minute bus ride to Placa Espanya public square and transportation hub
  • 8-minute drive or 17-minute bus ride to Barceloneta Beach
  • 8-minute drive or 23-minute ride via public transportation to the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC)
  • 13-minute drive or 21-minute bus ride to Antoni Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia church
