“Not for Tourist”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Enjoyed our visit at Melia Sarria. Staff was helpful and friendly but not all speak English. Rooms and bath are very nice and modern. Breakfast is fabulous but expensive. Do not recommend for tourist travel however. Not enough restaurants and cafes where people speak English. Not convenient location for hop-on, hop-off bus.

We couldn't be happier with our stay here! We upgraded to 'the level' experience and it's well worth the money in our opinion. The room had a phenomenal view over the city (18th floor), it was very spacious and the bed was huge and beautifully comfortable. The bathroom had a multi jet power shower and a jacuzzi bath. The level upgrade includes breakfast and access to what's basically a vip lounge. Breakfast is fantastic, well above par we reckoned, with the option to eat in the peace and quiet of the 'level' lounge if you prefer. The hotel was clean and smart throughout and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Most importantly the staff were amazing, especially Carlos on the level. They really went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and to help us explore this stunning city. We found the location to be perfect for us, plenty to see locally, 3 min walk to the bus stops or 6 euros for a taxi to take you to the city centre.

Nice, spacious and clean rooms, comfortable beds. Lagre bathroom. The service was excellent most of the time with very friendly staff. The breakfast was really good. We thought first it was situated a bit far from the city centre but concluded that it in the end was a good ting as the city centre was really crowded and busy. Did miss the possibility to sit outdoors in the april sun. Close to shopping and transport (bus and Metro).

Room Tip: Familiy room with older children not a good idea as the sleeping sofa was not so comfortable to slee...

Very well located, next to Diagonal Av, Lilla shopping centre and not far from main touristic sites. Tram and underground stops are available nearby.
Room was spacious, comfortable and clean.
Breakfast was very good, especially the hot food section.
Would consider staying here whenever I return to Barcelona.

Except of being somewhat old and dark furniture in the "Family Suite" my family and I stayed in for 4 nights, everything else was very good.
Friendly and ready to help staff.
Good breakfast buffet.
No major issues.

We are still at the hotel as I compose this. We are really enjoying our stay. The hotel staff are warm, courteous and go out of their way to make sure you are well cared for. Check in was fast, and our room was ready for us early. It was very helpful since we had been on a plane for 15 hours and badly in need of a shower, nap and change of clothes.
The room is large by European standards. We have a triple room and it is very comfortable for three adults. Unfortunately after we unpacked, we discovered the air-conditioning system in our room 824 was not functioning. Three minutes after notifying the front desk, the bellman was at our room to move us to 724 the next lower floor, directly before us.
724 is fully operational.
Other reviewers praised the breakfasts..and I completely agree. The quality and extent of the food and beverage offerings far exceeded my expectations. The diningroom decor is delightful and the table spacing isn't crowded. Our two waiters were very attentive. The two Jurka Expresso makers are fabulous and handy. On our first day we had a delightful lunch in the bar.. We liked it so much we came back our second night for dinner in the bar at 730pm. The restaurant doesn't open till 8pm.
I used the fitness center the first day. The hotel charges 15 euros which I thought was a bit high. I used the pool but found the water too warm for vigorous lap swimming. If you like general soaking or gentle breast strokes, it is ideal.
I developed an itchy, watery eye the second day and am a bit concerned I might have caught pink eye in the warm water. I just don't know.
The cardio and weight area, sauna and Turkish bath and shower facilities are all very nice and well maintained.
