“I expected more”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

The hotel is very nice and so was the staff. It may be a little overpriced though; my bedroom was nice and clean, but way too small - there was barely enough room for my suitcases, considering that my bed occupied 90% of the bedroom. I'm quite sure that they put me in such a small room because the hotel was full and I was by myself - I wouldn't believe that most rooms in such a famous and expensive hotel are that small. The location is okay - cabs in Barcelona are not expensive, but if you're planning on using public transportation that may not be the best choice since the closest metro stop is not that close. It's a little far from the main touristic areas of the city and from the beach as well, but at least there's a big avenue close to it where you can go shopping and eating.

The Hotel Melia Sarria is a nice Hotel Close to Avenida Diagonal. City Center is some 30 minutes walking, well connected with Bus or Taxi no Metro at walking distance.
Staff have been very friendly, Lobby is large and very representative good for relax or some short Meeting.
The Restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, Food is delicious and Prices are fine for a 5 star.
Rooms are average, not very large well equipped probably over fit with furniture, desk, Sofa etc.
I´ve been surprised by the extra Charge to Access swimmingpool span and gym, with few hours available I´d just like to enjoy this Services for a short time without extra fee however all in all a good Level Hotel probably not a 5 star luxury Hotel but very nice.

I really want to give this hotel a better review. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was clean and comfy and the breakfasts were absolutely delicious. I can also honestly recommend upgrading to The Level for the high quality lounge, drinks (booze!) and snacks.

However, I had two major issues - the Hotel is in a lovely suburb, but a suburb which is a loooooong way from the centre and the beach. We ended up spending a fair amount of money on late night Taxis to get back and getting very toned, if achey legs from all the walking. Also, the bathrooms aren't that private, even though there are two doors, they're both lightly frosted glass and not at all soundproof. I also think the shower needs an upgrade - mine was still fairly powerful, but not all of the settings worked well.

Oh and try and avoid checking out at the same time as an entire cruise ship filled with disorganised people. Not the Melia's fault, but it might be sensible to check the day before if there are going to be any mass check outs when you need to head for the airport.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a "Level" Room - Anything over 15th Floor. Worth it for the use of the Lounge a...

Let me start off by saying this Hotel is very nice. There just happen to be a few problems. Problem number one, check in takes too long. After a long day of traveling you want to spend time in bed rather than standing at the front desk waiting to be checked in.

You might be very confused with the room as there are many sliding doors. The second big problem no views. I've been to this hotel 3 times and each time no views.

The upside is that it's near good restaurants. Just 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel. I would recommend eating at a restaurant called Madarin.

The Hotel Melia Sarria makes a good impression as you step in the Lobby. On one side is the Bar and coffee shop. While the other side is the front desk, with a few sofas to sit and relax. The lobby lounge is big, comfortable and relaxing. Lots of tourists and group tours stay here. The location is between city centre and airport. And the main artery, the Diagonal is only 100 metres from the Hotel. The Hotel serves a sumptuous breakfast on the first floor, American and international. the rooms are fairly big, and the bathroom is very comfortable with a Cubicle as well as a bathtub. When you use the Bath Cubicle, the water does tend to run off out of the cubicle, so you got to be careful not to slip. There were no bathrobes provided in the room. No tea kettles in room, but for an extra they do provide tea/coffee kettle. The windows do not open completely but a little slantedly. The TV channels are not many, mostly sports and news in different European languages. All in all the experience is good and satisfactory. the staff is polite and friendly. Unfortunately i'd like to caution people about their articles in the Lobby. It can diappear if you are not alert. it happened to us that our new and quaint boutique umbrella disappeared in the lobby and till date even with cameras its untraceable.

Room Tip: higher the floor better the view.

I stayed with my family at Melia Barcelona for 5 days, it was a great experience, here is a little summary of my journey there : The first day we arrived from the airport we were really tired and we found out the first and last negative point: the check-in is too slow mainly because the hotel is very pointy on security issues. Then we went to the 2 rooms we reserved and both of them were clean tidy and very good the only mini problem is if you have a baby like we did, the park will take a lot of place in the room. The restrooms are very clean and offer a combination of shower and bath, but the sliding door did not offer alot of privacy. The next day at breakfast we were well surprised by the service quality and the huge choice of food. Then when we went out of the hotel and walked aprox 500m we arrived at the touristic bus stop and the intersection was on the Avinguda Diagonal which is the biggest avenue in Barcelona. So from there and 10-15 min walk we arrived at La Rambla. But the hotel is a walking distance from all Barcelona main interest points. Then 1 day before our departure the Hotel staff came in my brother and I room at 4am making us realise that the room is flooded bcz of a technical problem, so in the middle of the night we were transferred to the a Suite at the 14th floor and the view plus the room were a great combination. So in the overall it was an amazing experience the staff are great (they helped us everyday for our itinerary even to plan our trip to Port Aventura) and I really recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Barcelona and especially for a couple

Room Tip: if you are a couple the dimensions and the features of the rooms will be really great.
