The W is a great hotel for people looking to have beach access right at their door. It is located in the Port area of Barcelona. It is very modern with the rooms being spacious and many different amenities. The one draw back is surroundings. Being that it is in the industrial port area, there is not many things to... More

We loved this hotel in Barcelona! It is a little off the beaten path which could be good or bad depending on your goals in Barcelona! There are plenty of cabs outside to take you wherever you need to go but if walking is what you prefer then tack on a least 20-40 mins until you get tot he main... More

I am really in love with this hotel! I first went 2 years ago on vacation with my boyfriend. Last December I spend a week traveling for business and then came back in April for 2 nights, again with my boyfriend to visit an exhibition. Each time the stay was perfect. Will never get bored of these views! And the... More

The W Barcelona was easily one of the coolest, nicest hotels I have stayed at in my life. The place was always clean, top of the line service, right on the beach, beautiful pool, and hip, sexy crowd. Something special happened after I checked out though! When I got to the airport to travel to my next destination, I realized... More

My husband I stayed at the W on the night after leaving a cruise ship. The hotel is hip and modern and the guest bedrooms large and well-equipped. We were put in one of the rear sea view rooms which have a fairly boring view. The better rooms overlook the beach and pool. I found the bed too soft but... More

My husband and I stayed at the W Barcelona from June 22-28. When we first arrived it was a Sunday morning and we were a little concerned because we weren't initially greeted by the hotel staff nor did anyone help to bring in our luggage. We decided to let this go and make the most of our day while waiting... More

Just completed our stay at the W Hotel In Barcelona. The staff was wonderful. Always greeted with a smile. They all went out of their way to be helpful. We had a corner room overlooking both the harbor and the Mediterranean. Amazing view! Room was very nice. Just beware that the shower water may run all over the bathroom...make sure... More

Am a Platnium guest and I will give you the good, the bad and the ugly for which you can then decide if you concur. Good: Amazing views, super chic and trendy, beachfront access, nice breakfast buffet, continental room service exceeds US standards as far as what is included, sexy bellman, pool area, room lighting and automatic drapes were impressive....

I stayed here last week with my wife. Location wise, it's prime. Great access to the beach and you're right at the bottom of the city, most everything is a 10 euro cab away. I thought the hotel was nice, but wouldn't stay again, but maybe i'm just biased. Here's why I didn't give all 5 stars... It is definitely... More

Located right at Barcelonita beach the W definitely is the hot spot in Barcelona.I love the spacious guest rooms with full blown view of the sea. The friendliest staff great food and almost every night with great events at wet deck and on the rooftop. My preferred hotel in Barcelona.
