If you want to stay in a sky scraper this is your chance. Not high by Asian or American standards it is still one of the highest buildings in Barcelona but it is not for everyone. It is not exactly a luxury hotel and not as modern as it looks. It is geared towards business travelers.
We arrived early and did not expect to be able to check in. The receptionist told us that the system was down but could she have our credit card anyway. We refused especially as we had heard of skimming stories. See one the earlier reviews. The porter was very helpful though and kept our bags for us and gave us directions. When we returned the afternoon reception staff knew nothing about a system down, and gave us our room forthright. We had been upgraded. Fantastic. And our room was almost on the top floor with an amazing view of Barcelona.
The room was boutique style, well designed with a small bathroom which you look into through glass from the room. There is a big sliding door that opens on one side to the shower and another side to the clothes cupboard. Dangerous if one of you is exiting the shower as the other is getting something from the cupboard. There is a big Tv which we did not use and a very comfortable bed and a small lounge chair. The room is lit by a complicated electronic control panel which we could not figure out. Like wise the air conditioning could not be turned down . Eventually a technician came to clean the filters and it immediately worked better. The fittings are all quite cheap for a 5 star hotel but they work and the room looked good. What makes it special is the incredible building itself and the view and all that glass.
Breakfast was good but the design restaurant where it was served was not to my taste. The gym was adequate if a little small. The small Yhi spa was very refreshing and relaxing at the same time. The pool looked clean and inviting but we did not use it. The hotel is away from the tourist area but if you do not mind walking to the nearest metro it is in a good position for anywhere in the city.
When we checked out we had the original receptionist again. This time the computer was not down and we paid by credit card. She took the card quickly into the back. We checked with our credit card company and apparently two attempts were made to withdraw money. Of course we cannot prove anything but apparently card skimming at hotels is becoming quite common.
But don't let it spoil your stay in the sky scraper. We certainly did not. The highlight of our stay was treating ourselves to the culinary delights of the Dos Cielos restaurant, a gourmet restaurant of exceptional standing situated in the hotel.

Hotel a little run down, could do with freshening up! Staff don't listen and are very slow. We had a young baby with us and our room was over an hour late on check in, they used a number of excuses why it wasn't ready

Very nice hotel for sure but with some flaws that need to be solved.
The hotel is so much focused on conference guests but forget about leisure guests.
Swimming pool was nice but so difficult to get some snacks, drink or lunch.
My first room was without WIFI, or better to say the WIFI isn’t working well. And no bath, If I can remember I must have a bath with the room I booked. Doesn’t matter about the bath but WIFI is essential for me.
It was solved, we got another room now with bath and working WIFI. And we also got a free breakfast! Thank you for that Melia

This hotel is just top! The staff is very friendly and guest orientated. Every morning we had been greeted and escorted to our table for breakfast by a very lovely restaurant host and the guest experience coordinator Mr Simone De Sisti is one of the best we ever came around. He was recommending the spots to visit at Barcelona and even helped us reserving online a visit of the Sagrada Familia in order to avoid a long waiting line. Just perfect.
The rooms are spacious and clean. International TV chains and a beautiful bathroom and a superb view from the top floors are truly a perfect memory add on for this stay.
The gym on the 5th floor is great and as well friendly staff here.
The hotel itself is just 2km away from the beach and two blocks from the next Metro station bringing you downtown.
So, all in all you see that this hotel should be your first choice visiting Barcelona.

Room Tip: Ask for a nice room, upper floor over viewing the beach...and take the LEVEL access. The plus is rea...

The view of the city was wonderful, as was the service and the people. The only issue I did have was that the concierge couldn't help us get tickets to a local show. Otherwise, they took great care of our room and of us. They printed our tickets to the Segrada Familia, so we didn't have to wait in line. They let us extend our stay by 2 days, so we didn't have to find a new hotel and the reception desk people were so nice!!! Also, very conveniently located near the L4 train station.

I highly recommend staying here for those who want "W" quality at a reasonable price! LOVED IT!

We stayed last year for a special occasion and were looked after by the hotel from the moment we arrived. The hotel is in a good location, a little away from the hustle and bustle of Las Ramblas, but still within walking distance of all the main sights. I would certainly return. The hotel room was
very cool, with features such as remote-operated curtains, and the view was AMAZING. We had a city view room, which i would recommend over the sea view room. Overall, well recommended.

Hotel looked good from the outside and inside was sleek and dark with a constant annoying music . We found the rooms spacious and very nice views . Very nice to have a pool on the premises to break the site seeing day with a little relaxation. Breakfast was very good and a huge selection of hot and cold items. What we didn't like was the out of the way location and terrible smell in the surrounding area which for me took away from this city. I was not impressed.
