Loved this place. I uprgraded to the Level and had a wonderful room on the 2nd top floor. It was hard to leave, except that Barcelona is such a great city. As I am on a budget this meant that I could enjoy the drinks and meals in the Level Lounge. Location is a little out of the main action - but with great transport links you are not far from the action but without the noise and bustle of an old city location. Loved it!

Room Tip: Spoil yourself with an upgrade to the Level. I got a discount with my Melia membership

Spent four nights here. Would have been five nights but we were informed on arrival that we couldn't be checked in due to a problem with our room. Not a promising start but the Melia Sky more than made up for it. We had already been booked in at a nearby Hilton and we were swiftly delivered there by taxi for an overnight stay, with the promise of room upgrade and access to 'The Level' on our return. Guess we'll cope then!

On check-in the next day we were given room 1902. A very quick journey in the lift got us up to our lofty room. The views of Barcelona are really stunning from this height and grabbed us from the moment we arrived. The room is on the small side but was perfectly OK for our needs. Not sure where I stand on the overall look and design of the Melia Sky though really, it wont be to everyones taste!

The bathroom area, shower and sink and the toilet area are directly behind the double bed, which is fine. However part of the design includes a huge pane of clear glass which means you can see out into the bedroom and vice-versa. Fine in the day but bothersome at night as the light from the bathroom and toilet areas floods the rest of the room...mmm. All the room doors are sliding, and again not sure if I liked this arrangement. Personal taste.

It was very handy to have been given access to 'The Level' up on the 25th floor. It was nice to have a glass of wine or a beer and a snack, on the house!, and the views were stunning from even higher up. We often stopped off there at the end of a days sightseeing.

Breakfast was buffet style and was always fresh and of high quality with plenty of choice. We didn't eat at the hotel so cannot comment but they do have a Michelin starred restaurant, bit too upmarket for us though. The rest of the hotel was very well laid out, but again, not sure about the overall aesthetic.

All of the staff were friendly and very professional and the way they dealt with our “problem” was impressive. Què bé!

I chose to stay there becasue i am an architect and i was looking for a design hotel in Barcelona. Melia Sky tries really hard on the design part but there is something missing. I was not at all impressed. The rooms are pretty small and although it is a 5 year old hotel it needs already renovation. The sink was very scratched and chipped off, same with the floor. The overall cleanliness of the room wasn't satisfactory with dust balls on the floor and mold in the shower. The complimentary wifi did not work in the room and was very slow in public areas. The positive of the hotel is that it is tower and you have the chance to have a nice view of the city.

A really nice improvement now it's been completely rebranded and redecorated. Staff are so nice: helpful and friendly, going out of their way to assist and make one's stay comfortable, reserve restaurants etc. Rooms are tidy, well appointed, yet very (too?) compact. Decor is clean & modern, almost to the point of taking it too far however. For goodness sake can I simply have a normal light switch, I don't need a fancy panel of buttons with different "mood settings" and brightness settings. I like having a choice and being manual! That said I would stay again, the location is great, food is nice and not too expensive. Business facilities and top floor lounge are exemplary.

Hotel chosen by supplier for business.
Smallish room but very nice. everything was top quality and the shower was great.
Not located right in the core of what is considered old or tourist Barcelona but not too far away. I was there for business after all.
I did get a chance to do some sight seeing and Barcelona is a beautiful city.
Nice bar and meeting spaces.
Actual travel was November 2012 - forgot to review earlier.

Room Tip: try to choose an upper floor facing back towards old barcelona for a fabulous view.

Although a bit of the Ramblas and other touristic attractions the Melia Sky is not a bad choice. Spacy rooms, tastefully decorated, a big bathroom, comfortable beds, hardwood floor. The breakfast buffet is generous and has a good variety, the bar is well stocked and the staff is friendly and attentive.
All this comes at reasonable price. The Metro is just round the block. Good choice for a business trip!

A friend and I stayed here for a couple of nights on Easter break 2013. Everything was easy and quick with booking and checking in, the room had a great view of the city, it was clean and located in a relatively quiet area. Loved the fact that the halls are carpeted (so no noise from incoming and outgoing "neighbors"). The shower was huge. But the most awesome thing about the room, no matter how weird this will sound, were the bed sheets. They were so soft and fresh I could barely get out of bed! Never before have I experienced such a thing!
Also, the staff was very attentive. Would definitely return!
