This is part two of my review of the Melia Barcelona Sky. Part one with my room and the restaurant is here. Part two focuses on The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky.
The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky is the 5* part of the hotel. I was told that guests can upgrade their rooms to a Level room for around €50, which could work out quite nicely as breakfast, ‘all day’ snacks and happy hour are complimentary for Level guests.
I checked in on the 25th floor at The Level reception where I was offered a seat and a glass of sparkling wine. I look at the lounge itself a bit further down.
I talked about my room (which was in the main 4* part of the Melia Barcelona Sky hotel) in part one of the review. I was also shown a Level room which was a similar size but had a Nespresso machine as well as a kettle in the room and where my room had a chaise lounge, the Level room had a sofa instead.
The room below is a Level Grand Premium with City View, there are also Sea View rooms available.
The bathrooms in the Level rooms have a shower, separate bathtub and two sinks.
They have toiletries by Loewe. I didn’t get to test them, though I would have loved to as I believe they must be better than the Melia own brand toiletries.
The Level Lounge is open from noon until 10pm and soft drinks, Cava, wine, snacks and coffee are available during the opening hours.
There were a good amount of seats available and the lounge was never packed when I was there.
There was also a work area with a computer.
The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky snack hour
Every day from 6pm until 7:30pm Level guests can enjoy complimentary drinks and canapes at Bar Cielos on the 24th floor.
Included are all drinks from the bar except for cocktails.
The canape selection was decent with gazpacho, sandwiches and a number of small salads and dips. Depending on how hungry you are you could skip dinner afterwards.
Breakfast for The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky guests was served on the 24th flour. It was an impressive buffet with a large selection of cheeses, meats and bread as well as fruits, salad, yogurt, cereals and made to order egg dishes.
The breakfast room had stunning views over Barcelona.
The only thing that bothered me was that coffee, water and juice were table service and I had to wait a little bit too long to be served.
As I said at the end of Part 1, Melia Barcelona Sky is a perfectly fine hotel but I would recommend to pay a bit extra for The Level package. The benefits of the free breakfast, lounge and happy hour should offset the modest extra cost and you will also receive a higher quality room and better views on top.
Thanks to Melia for providing my room.
