If you don't spend much time in the room/hotel, the Melia Barcelona is just fine. I don't think it is quite a 5 star. But there wasn't anything to complain about either.
The location and atmosphere doesn't really cater to the tourist looking to experience the charm of Barcelona. Nor does it have spectacular views. The only nearby attraction is the mall.
There were also several conventions going on and lots of business travelers (busy!). So I think it is quite sufficient for that type of travel 'experience'.
The rooms are a really weird shape and dark, but the huge tub and multi-head shower are pretty cool! No coffee in the room (deduct points) and the drinks from the hotel bar were expensive. The hairdryer overheated and they had a new one up to the room in seconds. This actually happens to me a lot and they were the fastest so far! (add points)
We only stayed one night so I didn't get a lot of exposure to any of the other amenities so again, everything was just fine.
