    As above, looking for a well-located hotel for a 2 night family trip to hit some tourists attractions. Ideally with inter-connecting rooms available…but not a deal breaker. Trying to keep 2 nights cost under 4 figures….

    Have provisionally booked the The Level at Melia Barcelona Sky, but it seems a little too far away from the action….. Nobu hotel also on my potential list.

    Any thoughts would be much appreciated…. Thanks

    We stayed at Nobu before our Virgin cruise booked on points and really enjoyed it, the furnishings and view were excellent and the value for money at the time was good for summer. The rooftop pool area is very well done but it’s small. Breakfast in the restaurant was good, but nothing spectacular as you may reasonably expect from a brand like this. If prices are roughly the same, Nobu over Melia for sure. Perhaps Emyr can get you some extras here too?

    For such a short trip, you really want to be central central: have a look at hotel 1898.

    It’s maybe worth looking at the various Room Mate options there which are all centrally located and they have a few family rooms with two separate bedrooms. You won’t find usually find facilities like spa, pool, gym or even restaurant (save breakfast room) but that is the concept, so if you don’t need/want those facilities you get great locations, very comfortable, well designed rooms at reasonable prices. I’m afraid there’s no points angle as that’s just another cost for the operators.

    We haven’t yet tried the Barcelona ones, but recently stayed at Oscar in Madrid which was very comfortable and incredible value. It does have a very popular roof bar.

    Absolutely try the Casa Camper – we have just come back and it was fantastic. 4* on a lovely little street just off La Rambla. Staff are superb and the terrace has a lovely view. The hotel also has a concept where you can have free food and drinks in the afternoon

    We did a long weekend for two, BA club avios flights, hotel and food (2 very lovely meals out) for £550 for 2 people

    I stayed at the Level Meliá Sky last year for work. It was fine as things go, and the lounge was a nice place to pass the time, but it’s not the best location for a short visit as a tourist. I am sure the Nobu would be a notch above from a design/finish perspective as well. As noted above, I would look elsewhere.

    Thankyou all very very much for your help. Hugely appreciated.
    The Melia will be cancelled.

    Nobu looks ideal, but Room Mate has decent family interconnecting rooms for similar price, aswell as a great looking terrace. Will give my wife the final call…

    (Casa Camper and Hotel 1898 didnt hhave rooms or needed 3 night stays)
