Review of the Hotel Melia Barcelona

Page Content

This page will give you an outline of the Hotel Melia Barcelona in Spain. We mainly cover the location in which the hotel is based but have also provided links to a review of the interior of the hotel with photos.


Where is Hotel Melia Barcelona?

The Hotel Melia Barcelona is in the north western most section of Eixample near Les Corts. Although this hotel is in Barcelona city centre it is approximately 40 minutes walk from Plaça de Catalunya (Catalunya is in the heart of the city centre) The hotel is therefore not as conveniently situated for sight seeing as the other 5 star hotels we have reviewed.

The hotel Melia is however only 10 minutes walk away from Hospital Clinic Metro underground stop on the Blue Line, L5. (See our Barcelona metro map page.) The metro will take you to practically all the important sights in Barcelona.


Sights of interest near the Hotel Melia Barcelona

The main sight of interest near the Hotel Melia is FC Barcelona which is only 10 minutes walk away. Photo gallery of Barcelona FC Camp Nou Stadium.

The other main sight of interest is Palau Reial de Pedralbes which houses the Museu de Ceramica and a collection of famous ceramics, tiles and porcelains including works by Picasso and Miró.

Apart from these two sights you have a good 20 minute walk to any other sights of interest. Alternatively you can use the metro to visit other parts of Barcelona.

The Melia hotel is close to Diagonal (only 10 minutes walk) which is on the 5 km shopping line. Diagonal is home to some of the best shops in Barcelona (along with Passeig de Gràcia)
