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.
