Upon entering the flashy/70s Disco lobby of the W hotel, my heart sank. I had expected elegant, beautiful design and felt assaulted instead. There were massive lines of people checking in and out. We had to wait a full twenty minutes to check in and were then told we couldn't have our room for another three hours. Since we were... More

Its a bit Ibiza trashy, kitschy, hip and trendy, a bit high-end Las Vegas, LA madness with a bit of new money bad taste mixed in. As the newest and shiniest hotel in Barcelona, my partner wanted to stay here. After a week of activity holiday in the Pyrenees I thought 3 nights of luxury would be a treat. The... More

We booked and paid for a 'Cool Corner Suite' in advance. We requested a 'high floor' although it stipulated this couldn't be guaranteed. Upon arrival we were informed we had been given the first floor, we made it obvious immediately that this wouldn't be acceptable, unfortunately no higher floors were available, but was assured we would be moved the next...

We stayed 2 nights and truly one of the worse experiences ever. For a start, the hotel lobby was a complete mess, half an hour wait to get our keys in the lobby fit looking enough for a 3 star hotel and one that looks like a bad 70s discotheque. It was small,busy and unfit for a 5 star hotel... More
