The rooftop bar and pool is fabulous at The Renaissance Barcelona Fira.
In fact it's one of my favourite hotels in the world! They very actively upgrade elites, and all rooms booked by the elite get the excellent free buffet breakfast. Alas, it's position is not central, but Barcelona is a cheap place to get to by Easyjet! Ryanair and Jet2 that it's easy to visit more often and do a little bit each time.
FInally, rates are very good here, frequently below €100/nt.
Sounds great. I went to Barcelona without my family and stayed at an AC Hotel near a train station. It was easy to get around, but very bare bones. My wife still wants to go there since she hasn't been and I'd love to go back. Sounds like a good idea for a getaway from long Latvian winters.

The above photos are of the CY Boulogne rooftop lounge in the daytime. You can see La Defense in the distance. You can also see the Eiffel Tower from this rooftop, but for some reason I don't have a shot. NathalieF, I can still only post one photo per reply and any photos that I upload will hose any previously typed text or previous uploaded photo.
