Set in a former cinema, Acta Mimic is an offbeat, cutting-edge design hotel located in Barcelona's infamously seedy, yet decidedly creative, El Raval district. The playful graphic façades give way to a splendidly retrotastic lobby with exposed concrete, bold colours and 70s-style furnishings
Minimalist "anti-chic" rooms feature black and white decor with adjustable chromatherapy lighting. Rooms have an open plan with a glass-enclosed shower by the windows, giving the rooms an airy, light feeling. Room facilties include air conditioning and a flat-screen TV. Selected rooms offer pull-out sofas (children 8 and under stay free) and/or private terraces.
The hotel offers a buffet breakfast (fee), a hip restaurant and a terrace bar/lounge. Other amenities include a rooftop patio with lounge chairs and views of the port, the Columbus monument and the Tibidabo mountain.
