One of the great European cities, Barcelona is full of history, memorable architecture and Old World ambience. Although visitors will enjoy soaking up the classic flavor of the city, it is just as enjoyable to indulge in a stylish, comfortable hotel with all the modern conveniences. The Melia Sky Barcelona, one of the most unique and upscale hotels in the city, fits this bill to a tee.

A high-rise hotel in Barcelona’s up-and-coming high-tech neighborhood, the Melia Sky has the feel of a hip boutique hotel — but with stunning views of Barcelona’s grandeur.

The hotel has 258 rooms on 29 floors. The rooms are modern and comfortable, featuring minimalist decor with fresh splashes of color and high-tech gadgets. On a recent stay, I particularly enjoyed waking up each morning, pushing a button and watching the curtains automatically open to reveal spectacular views of the city.

The hotel also features an outdoor pool, a luxury spa, the Michelin Star Dos Cielos restaurant with panoramic views of the city, a business center for groups and more.

Guests should consider booking a guestroom in The Level, Melia’s hotel within a hotel. Benefits to this room class include access to the private Level Lounge on the 25th floor, which provides guests with snacks, drinks and cocktails throughout the day, as well as its own front desk and concierge service.

Although the Melia Sky Barcelona offers a modern hotel experience, it’s only a short taxi or bus ride into one of the city’s historic areas. So guests staying here can enjoy the history of this beloved city and still benefit from 21st-century comfort.
