There was a first Me Barcelona years ago, but neither the building nor its location was matching the essence of the brand and Meliá planned a change.
After renaming this Me Barcelona on Pere IV street as Meliá Barcelona Sky, the search for another location began. How could Barcelona, a city so cosmopolite and hip remain without a Me?
Finally, a very nice project germinated, the reform of the “Novedades” cinema and the “Barcelona hotel”, at the beginning of Casp street, next to Paseo de Gracia.
The project has been on the table since 2014, but encountered, among other difficulties, the hotel moratorium promoted by Barcelona City Council and could not move forward until 2017.
After three years of construction and various delays, I was able to take pictures of the pilot room and of the views this February. A little more patience and in autumn 2021, it will finally be a reality. There will be, in addition to the hotel, a shopping area and public access to a plaza in the centre of the block.
