Last month I spent a weekend in Barcelona for my fiancées birthday, I have been to Barcelona before so I was really excited to go back! We stayed at the Meliá Barcelona Sky for 2 nights – after such a great experience at the ME hotel in Milan I couldn’t wait to see what the Meliá Barcelona had to offer.
The hotel is located around 1.5 mile from the city centre and just a 10 minute walk from the beach. It is also a few minutes walk from Poblenou Metro station which is a quick and easy way to get into downtown Barca.
The Meliá definitely go above and beyond with their customer service, it really is exceptional. When checking into the hotel we were offered complimentary refreshments and even had our own private check in area and reception.
We stayed in one of the suites on the 21st floor which was part of ‘The Level’, the five-star section of the hotel. The rooms were extremely bright, spacious and modern with floor to ceiling windows showcasing breathtaking views of the city and Mediterranean Sea. We were welcomed with a bottle of Cava and some chocolate strawberries in our room – this was a nice little touch! The room had everything you need from a Nespresso coffee machine, an iPod docking station, surround sound system, robes / slippers and a well stocked mini bar. The bathroom was amazing, with double sinks, a walk in shower (literally incredible!) and a bath situated perfectly so you could enjoy the stunning view.
As we were staying at The Level we had access to an exclusive lounge which had complimentary drinks and snacks all day from 12pm – 7pm. This was a great perk to the hotel!
The hotel has two restaurants. ‘Dos Cielos’ which is a Michelin star restaurant located on the 24th floor, unfortunately this was closed during our stay so we didn’t get to experience this. However the terrace bar was open and had stunning 360 views of the city and was a great place to chill, have a drink and take in the scenery. The second restaurant is Merkado which is located on the ground floor by the hotel lobby – this had more of a casual vibe to it.
We also visited the Spa at the hotel which was very relaxing. The hotel has a gym, sauna, jacuzzi, steam room and Turkish Bath. They also offer a wide range of treatments including massages and facials.
Meliá hotels is definitely becomingone of my favourite hotel chains, the service and attention to detail is outstanding. I can’t wait for my next stay!
