Meliá Barcelona Sky Review

East of Plaça de les Glòries, the Meliá hotel group's Me Barcelona has taken a serious run at the top end of the city's hotel scene. The lobby, a black-white-and-red throwback to 1980s decadence, leads to a futuristic check-in desk, all white lacquer and lucite. The rooms continue the lobby's color palate, with a few mid-century chairs and benchs to balance the look. Natural rain showerheads, push high-thread-count bedding, and Elysian geese feather pillows add to the maximalist appeal. For some, the hotel's restaurants are the strongest selling point: the Dos Cielos with star chefs the Torres twins at the burners and the Angels & Kings pool and restaurant could be considered the most luxurious amenity of all.
