Luxuriously convenient and elegant! This hotel is the best. Their attention to detail is exquisite. Their employees are courteous and professional. Despite it being a Latin country, when inside the hotel, I forgot I was in Europe. No expense has been spared to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Every employee is fluent in English and Spanish. One even... More

If there was a 6 Diamond it should go to the W. Service, attention to detail, suite amenities, pools, spa - food - It had it all including location on an amazing beach. Iit was in walking distance to shops and restaurants and easy cab ride to museums. Staff was amazing .

Worth going here for the roof bar alone. Stunning views from ceiling to floor window along one side. A fantastic cocktail menu too, be prepared to spend a lot of time & money here! Hotel has a very contemporary feel with cool & modern public areas.

Our first impression was 'this is noisy'. Reception seemed to be full of young children bouncing around on the swinging chairs. Check-in was fast and easy, the lifts were fast and plentyof them. The view from the full height and width window across the beach and the sea were stunning, and could be enjoyed from a comfortable full width sofa.... More

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighborhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
