We were staying at the Level, Melia Barcelona for my daughters 18th birthday treat. The 25th floor reception with complimentary drinks and snacks was excellent and the staff very attentive. On our first night the pre dinner reception (free alcohol and tapas) that was held on the 24th floor with views overlooking the city was great. Unfortunately, this is where the five star service pretty much finished. Our breakfast on our first morning was not on the 24th floor with panoramic views, it was in the ground floor restaurant ( where the food was ok and totally self service - including teas and coffees). We were also advised that breakfast would be served down here on our second day because the bar on the 24th floor was being refurbished, so access was no longer permitted. In addition, the pre dinner reception was to be held on the 25th floor ( in the lounge/reception where you check in). Breakfast on the second day was even worse - the restaurant was very busy and because we were in the five star area we weren’t supposed to get our own drinks ( however it took ages to be served) and when they finally realised we were there, and had helped ourselves to food, we were offered a selection of eggs cooked to order ( which would have been great if we hadn’t already helped ourselves to the buffet - including inedible cold scrambled eggs. Sounds like we hated it. We didn’t. I don’t think it was a five star experience but a really competent four star hotel. Breakfast was disappointing and I wish they had let us know before hand that there would be renovation work taking place, so we could have made a decision as to whether to change venue or not. However, The room was very pleasant, the staff was very helpful and their English impeccable.

We have just returned from our stay at this hotel. From the moment we arrived we enjoyed every minute of our stay.The check in service on 25th floor with welcome glass if Cava is a great introduction. We sampled the spa for massages and loved it. With it being my wife's birthday the hotel sent a complimentary cake and bottle of chilled bubbly upto our room.My wife was delighted with this personal touch. The private lounge and bar areas are great for relaxing and enjoying the panoramic views of the wonderful city. Breakfast offer was very varied and set us up for our days of visiting the numerous attractions. This is a genuine 5 star hotel in a good location for both beach and city centre.We will definitely be returning.

From the offer of a welcome drink at the 25th floor reception, the atmosphere was immediately cordial after travelling. After taking some snacks at the lounge with a view over Gaudi's Cathedral Sagrada Familia, my bags were taken to the room. Rooms have lovely views over the city of Barcelona; inside the modern slick room with wall to wall curtain there is a soft and welcoming bed, funky chaise longue sofa, ambient red corner light, a good desk and chair to work at, power sockets in the right places. Slightly odd metal freestanding post for your room card made me think 'slightly spaceship'. The bathroom is separated by a glass panel, there is a walk in shower, and a couple of robes & slippers in the red shelved open wardrobe. Heading down to the small gym, the facilities are enough to get the blood pumping. After that you can relax in their steam room, sauna and jacuzzi pool. There are three chill out couches for relaxing after. Unfortunately I didn't get to check out the bar or restaurant, but enjoyed a couple of 2 hour sleeps here and there amongst a busy schedule.

Our stay at the hotel was really a memorable and pleasant one: with its great connection to public transport (roughly a 5-10 min walk to the Poblenou Metro station, and 3-4 mins to the next Tram station) this hotel is the ideal base for a city trip. Also the beach is located in walking-distance, which gives you the best of both sides - sightseeing and relaxing. Yet, despite its great location it is still far enough removed from the overcrowded tourist hotspots in town, so that you can return to a quiet haven in the evening after a day out in the city. The interior is kept very modern, and has a luxurious feel to it. From the moment you enter the ground floor hallway, you feel welcome and pampered, and can relax in the beautiful, quiet and sensuous atmosphere (soft music, dimmed lights, and soothing fragrances in the air). This becomes even more evident as soon as you leave the elevator on the 25th floor to check in at the closed-off 'The Level'-lounge, where you're welcomed with a glass of chilled champagne (or softdrink) by one of the friendly members of staff. The rooms of 'The Level' are located on the top floors of the hotel, and are furnished in a modern and sophisticated way, without seeming spartan. They come with walk-in showers, high-end quality beds/ mattresses/ pillows, and floor-level windows which offer amazing vistas either over the city (also the Sagrada Familia) or the ocean. Also, they're equipped with a Nespresso-machine and free coffee capsules, which are re-stocked daily. Among the amenities of 'The Level' is also a closed-off snack-bar, which offers complementary cold and hot drinks as well as snacks throughout the day, a complimentary tapas-hours from 7 pm in the 'Dos Cielos'-restaurant on the 24th floor, which provides an assortment of hot & cold tapas and drinks (champagne, gin, vodka, beer, soft-drinks, and many more) with lovely views of the sea, free access to the superb spa area with jacuzzi, as well as breakfast in the 'Dos Cielos'-restaurant (for this, the restaurants is closed off to the other guests, so that you can enjoy breakfast in front of the sunrise over the ocean in an intimate atmosphere). Also the staff of the hotel (particularly reception & concierge) go out of their way to fulfil whatever wish you may have, and are always ready to assist you in any way possible, and are friendly above and beyond what can be expected! The only negative thing which we noticed during the whole of our stay was the staff in the 'Dos Cielos'-bar during the afternoons/evenings: much in contrast to the other members of staff, who are the personification of kindness and professionalism, the general attitude here was much more reserved (not to say condescending and arrogant), and also the service was in no way comparable to the rest of the hotel. Just to give one example: on our last evening at the hotel we went to have cocktails, and after being ignored for 45 minutes, we left without having even ordered. Also, during the time we waited to be served, one waiter dropped a tray of wine glasses right next to us; now, while that isn't a problem at all - accidents do happen - his reaction was: instead of apologising for the mishap and for getting splashes of wine on us (and other guests), he cursed, turned around, and went back to the bar, so that we were left with broken glasses and puddles of wine on the floor. This was really a shame, as this experience fell so far behind the standards which the rest of the hotel set. I can only imagine that this is not the usual treatment guests receive there, and that they were either tight on staff or that the waiter was new to the job, as this in no way matched the (excellent!!!) impressions we got in other areas of the hotel, or even in 'Dos Cielos' during other times of the day. But as this was literally the only setback during the whole of our stay, I would still highly recommend staying at this hotel. I would also like to extend a hearty "Thank you!" to the hotel for making us feel so welcome and pampered!

When you arrive at the hotel, you go up to the 25th floor for the reception. At reception you are offered a seat and drink. The room was on the 23rd floor and had a good view of the city (you can pay an extra 30 euros for a sea view). The room was modern with a king sized bed and plenty of electric sockets. There was no USB connections next to the bed. The bathroom was a little small and didn't have a suitably placed mirror. However the shower was very good and there were bathrobes and slippers. The wifi was easy to connect to and reliable. The room was dark and quiet enabling a good nights sleep. As a guest of the hotel you have access to the lounge, where you get free drinks and food. The food is basic food for most of the day, but a lot more is put out for 7pm. The lounge has comfy chairs and a nice ambience with nice views over the city. The breakfast rooms are on the 24th floor, there is a sea view or city view. There is a wide choice of foods including fresh fruits, yoghurts pastries, cakes and hot foods. However the staff were slow and not very responsive. We asked twice for hot tea and eventually gave up waiting. We had very good service from Diogo and want to specifically name him for doing a fantastic job (all the staff on reception and in the lounge were good). It is about a 25 minute walk to the Sagrada, 50 minutes to Las Ramblas and 5-10 minutes to the metro.

Just got back two days ago ( March 18-20th ), travelled as a couple for a mini break. We arrived outside the hotel via taxi which took 20-25 minutes ( oh that cost us 41 euros from airport to hotel , there was extra charge as we arrived on a Sunday, return on a weekday was £35 euros) and was welcomed outside the hotel and our luggage taken from us, inside we were then taken to the lifts to go upstairs to level 25 to be checked in, as the reception on ground floor is for the 4 star hotel. We walked out of the lift and turn the corner in to a lovely calming are with two reception desks, to the left a reading /lounge area and to the right an area for refreshments such as tea, coffee, soft drinks and wine ( red, white, rose) and a selection of food to nibble away on whilst taking in the amazing views of Barcelona and the hill tops. We were given a warm welcome and invited to sit when checking in and offered a glass of wine or water. We had arrived early and our room wasn't ready, not really a big problem we got a ticket for our luggage and off went went not to waste any time as we were only there for 3 days/2 nights. We found our way to the beach area. Took us longer than normally now to my mobility as it slows me down, but I reckon normal speed walking probably 10 minutes away. The beach is lovely and the sun was out and so the beach had a busy but calming atmosphere with volleyball, ball games, people sitting on the beach, people sitting along the many benches just watching others and the sea, with the odd plane out at sea coming into land. Lots of people walking dogs, on roller skates and cycles it really seems an active place along the sea front. There was a few restaurants along the beach front but we walked to the little harbour and sat in the sun and had a drink and bite to eat as here there was plenty of food outlets. We strolled back to hotel and sampled some of the nibbles and enjoyed a few glasses of wine taking in the view at a window seat as our room was ready our luggage was taken to our room for us. Our room: Room 2305, floor 23. This room is an interconnecting room. Card entry and on entering we were wow'd. To the left was Nespresso coffee machine, capsules, kettle, cups, mini bar -- the mini bar is chargeable -- there was a clothes hanging area and automatic rail light when you walked passed, draws and shelving. A free safe to use. Shoe buffer/cleaner accessories. Next was a huge walk in shower with over head shower head or choice of a normal spray , though no hook on the wall for this to sit in so you had to hold it to use. Personally as I have longish hair I didn't want wet hair by using the over head head and there was no shower caps to use. The toilet area had a sliding glass door that didn't quite reach across , the glass had blocked out area in the middle for privacy. Heated towel rail, more shelving and bin. Then there is a huge window looking into the room and you can see the amazing view outside from here, there were two basins and swing out mirror ( behind the mirror were electric sockets, tissue box, hotel toiletries and a moveable little mirror. Two dressing gowns and two pairs of slippers in a little bag, oh and for a nice change there is a proper hair dryer. that was lovely and powerful. Towels were white and very soft. Fixed mirror behind the main door into the room. Walking into the main bedroom there is a huge tv on the wall, a wow of a view over Barcelona and hill tops --sun sets this side and let me tell you it was beautiful and late at night with all the lights of the city was stunning. --- The bed was huge with plenty of sockets for charging, light switches and reading light. Telephone for reception. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and I slept so well. They have a turn down service in the evening. Breakfast is on floor 24. Again as you'd expect for being up high , stunning views this time looking over Barcelona and the sea. Choose of sitting to enjoy in here of sofas and tables, chairs and tables, this is also the evening bar area. But back to breakfast : The choice of food is vast in the separate area as they show cook in here too. You have your meats, cheeses, hone from a honeycomb, cereals, boiled eggs, range of different breads to toast, fruit, huge range of pastries, then in hot servers : bacon, potatoes,scrambled egg, beans, chicken sausages and more. There is something for everyone. Your are served fresh orange juice and coffee/tea and on each table is a selection of the famous Tiptree jams to enjoy ( lovely to see as we live about 10 miles away from Tiptree jam so we know the quality) . Staff were friendly and we were often asked if we wanted more orange/coffee/tea, So relaxing to sit here. The first morning the sun was beaming through and really warmed up the area, as they have covered over the ceiling area that most come off during the summer months. The second morning they had the heaters on and it was lovely warm and gave a nice atmosphere too. This area has a bar for the evening to use and they had the heaters on then too. Floor 6, has the decking area and sitting area and an outside pool. The hotel also has a spa area too and treatments - payable. We loved the area of the hotel, not right in the heart of the city, but in a quieter area. The hotel is immaculately clean, very comfortable and has staff make this place. We must say a very big thank you to Yolanda Beitane- this young lady is the best! So friendly and extremely helpful. She booked our hop -on-off-bus passes, tickets to Sagrada Familia and recommended us a restaurant to eat in the evening, which was so good she booked us in again for our second night , this restaurant was called Raco De La Villa. You can't beat the staff here, so friendly and their English was very good. To help enjoy your Barcelona trip : The hop on hop off buses run near by , about a 10 minute walk and this is one the Green route, You can swap routes and get on the Orange route too. So you can really get around and see the city in your own time this way. Taxis are plenty full and can seen seen easily as they are black a yellow. There's a tram line not far from the hotel and there's also the metro trains - can't comment on tram or metro as we never used them. Our time in Barcelona was short and flew by. We had a lovely time and I truly enjoyed my birthday treat from my hubby. I didn't want to leave. I can't recommend this hotel high enough. Though if I could make two changes it'd be free bottle of water for the room, so I could of made a cup of tea, as water was in the coffee machine already for us, ( yes, I know there's water in the selection in the mini bar be expensive) and a shower cap . Thanks The Level at Sky Barcelona for a fabulous stay and a massive thank you to Yolanda, you're a little star and help us with our bookings for trips and restaurant in the evenings , Raco de la villa is a hidden gem we'd not of found without you. Thank you also for my little Melia biscuit, it was yummy :) If we visit Barcelona again, I will not hesitate to book to stay here again.

The Level at Melia Sky offers an elegant, affordable experience in a great location. Rooms are well-designed and modern, although small. Bed and bedding were great. The sea views are terrific and it's only a 15 minute walk from the hotel to the beach. The best part about the stay is The Level. The morning breakfast is top notch, truly amazing. It features great variety with top quality, fresh fruits, breads, pastries, cereal, meats, cheeses, and made-to-order waffles and omelets. In the afternoons the Level is a perfect spot for quiet working or relaxing with snacks and drinks. The service is great, top-notch overall. I certainly recommend this hotel for business travel or vacation stay in the beautiful city of Barcelona.

The hotel is located in Poblenou a nice Area with walking distance Mall. The Level is an upper category from Melia and they treat you very well during the entire stay. The staff is always smiling and a great attitude, The rooms are very comfortable and wit a beautiful view to the city and the ocean. Overall is a Hotel that I recommend and expect to stay there again. Thank you very much to Antonio at the 24th floor (The restaurant) who was always very nice to us and everyone. Excellent Hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights last July with my friend. We had been Barcelona last year and had wanted to go a bit more luxury this time around so picked the The Level at Melia. Really enjoyed staying here from the lovely champagne welcome at check in to the friendly good bye on check out. As I had visited quite a while ago I cant remember every detail of my stay, however what stood out to me was the following: Room- view from the top floors are absolutely amazing overlooking the city. Room was really clean and tidy. The bathroom has a glass window which I didn't mind but I guess it depends how comfortable you are with who you are sharing the room with. Pool/spa- Pool spa area was lovely the large sheltered beds by the pool are so comfy that I had fallen asleep on it whilst it was raining! Theres also sauna/steam room and thermal pool (which was the perfect temperature). Cocktails served by the pool bar staff were great. Food- We had breakfast buffet at the level restaurant for the first two days which served nice hot food including omelettes with ingredients of your choice. On the last day I had asked to use the main restaurant for breakfast and to be honest the variety was much better here than breakfast served at The Level. We were out all day so didn't manage to eat any lunch or dinner so cant comment on this. Staff- I have stayed at a number of hotels and I must say the staff at Melia really stood out to me. From checkin in to when we left all the staff we interacted with including the check-in staff at the Level, those at reception, the pool bar staff, chefs at breakfast and the cleaners were all so friendly and were happy to help us with any issue that we had. All in all this was a wonderful stay at a hotel with its lovely amenities, hospitable staff and general good vibe. I am planning to visit Barcelona again this year and I will defiantly be booking a room at Melia.
