Experience Barcelona with Meliá Hotels International

One of the most exciting, dynamic and constantly evolving cities in the world, Barcelona is all the better explored from a base at one of its Meliá hotels. This home-grown Spanish brand is ideal for really getting under the skin of the compelling Catalan capital – not least in its ME by Meliá property, which brings together culture, lifestyle and community to truly connect you to your destination.

The brand-new ME Barcelona is an irresistible addition to Meliá’s existing hotels in the city, the Meliá Barcelona Sky (including The Level at Meliá Barcelona Sky) and the Meliá Barcelona Sarrià.

Barcelona through the Eyes of ME

With a plum location in the upscale Passeig de Gràcia, a few stops from the city-centre Plaça Catalunya and La Rambla, as well as just 25 minutes from the airport, this sparkling new property aims to show you an exclusive side of Barcelona you won’t have seen before no matter how many times you’ve visited, through unique artistic, cultural and culinary experiences including private visits.

It also has its own Cultural Programme bringing the city’s most creative minds to the hotel to showcase the best in contemporary entertainment: the like of live happenings, audiovisual exhibitions and partnerships with globally famous events.

Dining at ME Barcelona

As well as being beautifully sited for the rest of Barcelona’s incredible array of restaurants, the hotel has two sustainable Mediterranean restaurants using tomatoes and other fresh organic produce from its own 2,500m2 of urban gardens complete with terraces and fruit trees.

The first restaurant, Belbo, brings together a stunning art collection with urban greenery and delicious cuisine embracing the flavours of the south of Spain, Italy and Morocco in the likes of fish brochettes, paella and couscous, accompanied by tunes from a resident DJ. The flagship restaurant Errenal, serving contemporary healthy Mediterranean cuisine, also has a vast garden for alfresco dining in the sunshine. Lastly, Fasto serves classic and innovative Italian cuisine, similarly accompanied by a resident DJ: think antipasti, carpaccio, ‘zoodles’ and wood-fired pizzas, including vegan versions.

There’s also a fabulous rooftop bar with heavenly views of the Sagrada Familia and bustling Plaça Catalunya, plus a cosy fireplace to snuggle up to in the winter months.

Relaxing at ME Barcelona

A holistic spa with exclusive, tailored treatments melding ancient traditions and state—of-the-art  techniques, a hi-tech gym and yoga sessions out on the terrace mean there’s no excuse to kick back and indulge yourself or work on your fitness after enjoying your cultural sorties. Alternatively, a yoga teacher or private instructor can come to your room or suite for a bespoke session. The cherry on the cake is the eighth-floor rooftop pool with its skyline and sunset views.

Rooms and Suites at ME Barcelona

Accommodation here is dominated by neutral colours and simple lines, with vast windows letting in lots of natural light and open-plan bathrooms for a greater sense of space. Some come with garden views, others overlook city landmarks; some have terraces, and some of these come with outdoor Jacuzzis for really making the most of those iconic vistas. The largest have two bedrooms, a lounge and three bathrooms, making them the ultimate in urban refuges for families, intergenerational gatherings or groups of friends. Interconnecting options are also available.

Where to go for that ‘big moment’

12 June 2024

We’re not talking about your wedding day (though that will be up there with life’s most significant moments). We’re talking about those travel experiences that only happen at certain times of the year. Miss it and they are gone. Here’s when (and how) to be part of the action.

Immerse yourself in the impressive Norwegian coastline

11 June 2024

Hurtigruten’s 12-day classic Coastal Express itinerary is the ultimate way to see the Norwegian coast, taking you from cosmopolitan Bergen in the south to the edge of Europe at the North Cape and Kirkenes, then back again, covering much more of Norway than other cruise lines and visiting many smaller ports they can’t reach.

Experience the luxury lodges of Australia
