Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Trendy pool and sun deck with poolside bar
  • Gorgeous spa with extensive treatments, and a fitness center
  • 2 good restaurants, a sleek bar, and a sophisticated nightclub
  • Contemporary, chic design throughout
  • Stylish rooms with high-tech amenities and great views
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Not within walking distance to any major tourist attractions (but close to the beach)
  • Fee for parking
  • Fee for pets

Bottom Line

The Melia Barcelona Sky is one of the most stylish hotels in the city, with contemporary design and vintage-chic decor. Its 258 rooms come with top-notch amenities, such as flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, Aveda toiletries, and Nespresso coffeemakers, plus a trendy layout with a glass wall separating the bathroom from the room. Highlights of this property are the wonderful spa, the two good restaurants, the sophisticated nightclub, and the great pool and sun deck. It is located in the new business district, meaning you will have to take the subway to get to most tourist attractions, but the beach is a short walk away, and there is a lively commercial strip nearby with many restaurants and bars.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the border between traditional Poblenou and business-y District 22@

Melia Barcelona Sky is located on the border between traditional Poblenou neighborhood and District 22@, the up-and-coming business area. While the western part of the area still preserves the local flavor of a working-class neighborhood, the eastern end is characterized by the high-rises and corporate buildings popping up in a once-industrial area.

However, it is close to the beach and the hopping waterfront, and it is well connected via public transportation to the rest of the city and the main tourist attractions. Also, its proximity to the Ronda del Litoral, one of the main thoroughfares in Barcelona, offers easy access to the airport. The subway is four short blocks away.

  • 25-minute drive to El Prat International Airport
  • 15-minute walk to the beach
  • 15-minute subway ride to the Barri Gotic (Gothic Quarter)
  • 15-minute subway ride to the Picasso Museum
  • 15-minute bus ride or 5-minute drive to Ciutadella Park
  • 20-minute subway ride to La Rambla, a lively street with acrobats and mimes
  • 20-minute subway ride to Placa Catalunya, the heart of the city
  • 20-minute subway ride to La Pedrera and Casa Batllo, wonderful examples of unique Modernist architecture
  • 20-minute subway ride to Sagrada Familia cathedral
  • 25-minute subway ride to the Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA)
  • 15-minute drive to Guell park, designed by acclaimed Catalan architect Antonio Gaudi
