“It's all right but you have better options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Location is all right but not a walking distance from anything (I am not the walking type). Rooms were simply and pleasantly designed, yet quality is not as you would expect from a ME chain (The desks, Bedside tables, and bathrooms, although simple and nice, were of mediocre quality at best.

The pool was small, yet very chilled and relaxing. Tanning and laying down on their wooden floors with their awesome background music is quite a treat, especially when complemented with a refreshing cocktail.

This hotel is nice and represents good value for money, if booked in advance and at a low rate. I’ve told by some friends, however, that Zero Diagonal and Silken Diagonal hotels in Barcelona are better and cheaper alternatives.

Me Barcelona was great! We booked to stay via lastminute.com and had quiet high expectations after viewing the hotels website. As a hotelier I know that websites can be misleading at times but we were pleasantly surprised on arrival. We were booked to stay 7 nights in a superior room. Check in was smooth and Mario was great, recommending places to visit and things to do as first timers to this wonderful city. Our room was well appointed and had some nice views of the mountains. The bar service was great and all staff really friendly. The pool area was nice however I was somewhat disappointed that the angels and demons bar was not open throughout our stay. We didn't try any of the restaurants but did have room service a few times which was average. I was quiet put off by the pizza in particular but the breakfasts are great! It was really nice on a Friday and Saturday night as the lobby had a dj and it turned into a party. The location was perfect, tram stop is outside the hotel and metro station 2 mins walk away, about 5 minutes by metro into the city centre, which was great for us as we were away from the huge crowds of tourists. This was nice especially when you live in London. Overall out stay was great and we will be returning very soon!!!

My wife and I stayed at the ME Barcelona for three days September 7-9 of this year. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. ME is definitely more of a contemporary hotel with a cool foyer and main floor lounge area pumping out some lounge beats We upgraded our stay to include their Level Lounge on the 25th floor which had a good selection of pastries and fruit in the morning and chicken and beef kabobs and other small tasting plates in the afternoon. The LL offers, teas, coffee, cold drinks and spirits if you wish to have a refreshment. I would definitely agree with other reviewers regarding the location. Even though ME offers great value, it is a 10 euro taxi ride to Las Ramblas and a 20 minute walk to the beach. The subway is a couple of blocks away and is a quick way to get to many of the top tourist destinations in the city. We felt quite safe walking in the neighbourhood around the hotel and there are some great restaurants close by. I would give ME an 8 out of 10 with a 2 point deduction for location.

The hotel is really nice, close to the beach but away from the city centre. However the metro station is only a close walk away. Overall the room was amazing. If you can get it at a good price, I'd recommend it

The hotel is not as modern as the one in Madrid but the rooms are slightly bigger. It's located on about 5 miles away from the city center and about 2 miles from the beaches. The metro station is about 2-3 blocks from the hotel so getting to all the action is about 6-7 metro stops away from where we are. Room is clean but the mattress we slept on is too hard. If you like sleeping on a futon type mattress then you won't mind. I prefer a softer mattress because I like waking up and not feel like I slept on the floor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant Dos Cielos upstairs is very modern but the food is mediocre for the price they charge. Better off going to eat somewhere else.

I'm sorry that you didn't like the Dos Cielos Experience, the restaurant has been awarded with 1 Michelin Star and since the opening 4 years ago the restaurant is always fully booked and with long waiting lists, I hope you'll have the chance to give it another opportunity, I'm sure you will change this image

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. On arrival the spacious light and ariry lobby with bar and seated areas was impressive. It gave off a cool, relaxed atmosphere, the reception staff were also friendly and attentive. Unfortunately we had arrived in the morning so our room was not ready - The option to choose an early check-in was not available- but this wasn't too much of an inconvenience to us, as we were able to leave our suitcases and wonder the city.The hotel is conveniently situated on the Avenue Diagonal, a huge street that runs through the city connecting you to shops, cafes and tourist attrcations.

When we eventually returned to the hotel, our room was a big disappointment. We had booked a supreme room with a sea view. The view we had of the sea and the city below was inpressive but the furnishings let it down, they were shabby with chip marks. The bedroom smelt of cigarette smoke and the rug had what appeared to be nail clippings on and sesame seeds. The curtains were hanging off the rails in one corner and the bathroom had a loose toilet seat and marks and scuffs all around the basin. There was no guide to services or entertainment or anything in the room which we were quite suprised by and viewed as a standard thing provided in any hotel. We definitely do not class this as 5 star. The carpet in the hallway outside our room was also filthy

Nevertheless, we did have a reasonably nice stay here, we just expected our room to be a lot nicer and bigger than it was. The hotel has a lovely pool area on the 6th floor with a bar and plenty of seats and sun loungers to lie out and relax in, this made the experience a lot better for us, . We also ate in the restaurant which was ok - not a wide variety of dishes, but tasty enough.

All in all, not a bad place to stay, the staff were all friendly and attentive, just don;t expect it to be 5 star, I would say 3 star.
