The Level At Melia Barcelona Sky5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I dont usually leave a review whilst still staying at a hotel, but after being told that I couldnt take my 20 euro cocktail to my 350 euro a night executive suite room tonight I feel that it is fair to give some immediate feed back! As other reviewers have said, this is a hotel of 2 parts. The upper floors are designated the level - a concierge experience that some describe inaccurately as 5 star the lower floors are 3 to 4 star - my comments relate to the level Ive stayed at a number of Melia properties - they are my first choice whilst staying in Spain. This hotel has been the most disappointing of them all. Firstly the positives - stunning views, an interesting location - great for local Barcelona feel, but just a short cab journey from the tourist sites. Some staff members, particularly the level concierge excellent. A cool urban feel particularly around the pool. Now for the negatives - started from the moment we walked in. At 350 euros a night I expect a doorman.... No - walked into the hotel lobby, carrying our own luggage - had to ask where the level check in was - called our own lift - eventually found the check in area. Given the keys to our executive suite and found our own way there carrying our luggage. Stank of cigarette smoke, went back and complained - staff seemed to expect the complaint, then got moved. The room is spacious but ultimately plainly furnished, not what I would consider five star standard. The bed is not attached to the headboard, and dosnt have locks on the casters, so if you sit up in bed it rolls away from the wall. 2 tvs without instructions, that if you try hard enough you can get an english news channel but thats about it. One of the 2 sinks in the bathroom didnt drain - raised the issue with housekeeping staff member - was told I should ring reception. Room hadnt been serviced at 2pm, spoke to housekeeping manager on our floor. By 4.30pm still hadnt been serviced. Eventually when it had been, toilet rolls hadnt been refreshed, bins were un emptied, the only thing that appeared to have changed was that the bed had been poorly made. 1111111Service at the pool was patchy - appeared to be too few staff which appears to be fundamental problem with the hotel - in general poorly motivated staff - (with a few notable exceptions) and therefore presumably poor management and leadership - sadly I wouldnt recommend this hotel as an example of the Melia standard that ive come to expect.
I must say Melia hotels just make me smile, the customer service, decor and even down to the smell of beautiful fragrances they have across the corridors. You just know when you're at a Melia hotel, their hotels are built with love. Once again, really happy with my stay beautiful views I stayed at The level, just perfection. I was really impressed with the restaurant they had as well me and my partner enjoyed a beautiful 5 course meal (basically). Half of which we did not order they were just giving out tastings and so on through the night, which for me being a foodie I loved it! The staff were amazing ah just perfect. I can't wait for the next Melia hotel I go to, I'm in faith you guys will never fail me for my future travels! Thankyou again!
A last minute three-night booking and a flight delay saw us arrive at stylish and contemporary 'The Level Melia Sky' at about 1.30am on a Wednesday morning, so unfortunately missed the opportunity of checking in at the bespoke 'The Level' reception desk, albeit the standard Melia Sky reception on the ground floor was perfectly agreeable and the reception team wide-awake! We were allocated a sea-view room on the lowest of 'The Level' floors (20th) with a bed comfortable enough to accommodate a great night's sleep. Beyond the black-out curtains was a lovely morning view with a distant sea outlook and an urban landscape below. The room was of average floor space with a rarely used bed-end sofa and occasional table taking up useful space but looking good on the room spec'. Room cleanliness was good, but on two of the three full days housekeeping omitted to clear used coffee cups, milk cartons and all-importantly to me replenish the Nespresso coffee capsules which was disappointing. Calling to ask for some in my boxers wasn't on the agenda. The location of the Melia Sky was debatable having previously stayed in the heart of Les Ramblas (Hotel Bagues), it is in a far more remote residential location meaning if you're looking for sightseeing this isn't a good bet, but for a great selection of local bars and restaurants and a non-tourist adventure it fits the bill nicely. A taxi rank is outside the door and 12Euros gets you to Les Ramblas in 20 minutes, a taxi from the airport at 1am to Melia Sky - 46Euros and a midday return to the airport 29Euros, with the journey taking around 30-40 minutes. Albeit a lovely hotel with great staff the location would mean a return visit to a more centrally located hotel would be preferable.
Perfect 4 night weekend in Barcelona. Stayed at The Level 26th Floor with a city view which was absolutely stunning. It overlooked most of Barcelona, and you could see Montjuic castle, which lit up at night, as well as a beautiful sunset every day. Amazing service from the moment we arrived, from all the hotel staff as well as The Level staff. A special shoutout to Paramjot from The Level for his outstanding and efficient service, a very warm, friendly and helpful person. If you are stuck on where to go for the day or night, he has excellent recommendations and advice. The hotel is in a perfect location if you are pro-active and want to make the most of your time in Barcelona. Closest metro station is Poblenou which is a 5/10 minute walk away, and tram line is right outside, which takes you straight to cuitadella park behind the main beach area. The metro station takes you straight into the main areas of Barcelona too, very easy to navigate, similar to TfL. Lots of small bars and good tapas restaurants around the hotel, a short 15 minute walk to one of Barcelonas nicer beaches, gives you a chance to look at local shops on the way, less touristy. The hotel facilities are high standard, spa is quiet and peaceful, perfect after a long day of exploring. Pool is a beautiful, relaxing area, always plenty of loungers and helpful staff around, and good back ground music. The Level has free snacks and drinks (alcohol/non alcohol) throughout the day until 10pm, which was a nice touch. Breakfast was fabulous, lots of choice and stunning sea views with the sun rise. Overall, excellent hotel, I would not stay anywhere else if I was to visit Barcelona again. Many thanks to all the staff.
I travel for a living and I promise you a great time too. hotel is not in the middle of the city but close by metro service and staff awesome, Cristina is the best (by far) she goes above and beyond to help you with everything. Many thanks Cristina.
Cannot fault this hotel in anyway, my wife is very particular and she loves this hotel she wont hear of going to any other and we have been to a few, but this one stands out I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience from check in to check out. The customer service and the staff the facilities the room, breakfast the Merkado the views from the level overlooking the city and sea were all well worth it. Definetly looking forward to our next visit. Keep up the good work !!
Absolutely loved every minute we spent at this resort. The location is perfect. Close to the beach and also to the city. The hotel is separated into two sections. They have the Melia which is downstairs lounge and the lower levels. The Level is the 5 stars hotel with an amazing 25th floor view and a fine dining restaurant! Do not miss the breakfast! I wish I could have that breakfast forever. The breathtaking taking view, the personal chef, and the huge selection of drinks/foods are amazing. They also have a swimming pool located on the rooftop. It is not heated. They also have a really modern gym and spa. If you book this hotel, you will never want to leave !!
I remember when I was booking this hotel I found it quite expensive comparing to other options, but I did it anyway as it was the only one with a swimming pool and an acceptable fitness room. After my stay at The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky, my opinion is that it was a worthwhile use of my money. The room was amazing (Jr. Suite), the lounge service with food and drinks was very handy and the customer service was way above average. Excellent breakfast as well (we preferred the one served on the ground floor better than the one served on 24th floor). I recommend this hotel and I certainly will be there again when returning to Barcelona. Only to mention one disadvantage, the fitness room officially closes at 21:00 (but it is possible to use later if needed), however the air conditioner was turned off about 19:30, making the room unacceptably warm.
Cannot fault this fabulous hotel, with it's great facilities and wonderful staff. So polite, friendly and attentive. We didn't want for anything. Food was lovely. Bar/Pool area stylish and relaxing. Good location - not far from the centre so quiet and relaxing - easy to get out and about.
The Level at Melia Barcelona was gorgeous! Service was phenomenal. Loved going to the lounge for free drinks and apps. The pool area was very relaxing. Good walk to the beach and surrounding areas. Would stay here again if I couldn't get anything closer to the beach!
