Here you get the W experience ( cool, relaxed, blue hue lighted rooms ) away from hectic Barcelona. Wether for breakfast or dinner it has great options. It is a 15' walk from Barceloneta; so that you can also experience the touristic side, if you are for it. The right choice for the visitor, either on business or vacations, to... More

Hello Luis, Thanks for your great review! For business or pleasure W Barcelona is a great choice. As you highlighted, there are several exciting dining options available including Bravo 24 by Carles Abellan, Wave and soon to reopen for summer, Salt. We hope you can make it back to see us shortly!

Was over the last days at the W in Barca for a congress. 2nd time for me there, as always excellent service, cool rooms (nice space) with wonderful views over the ocean/city. The Bar 24th. floor is very nice regarding view, the people mostly younger (av. 20-25) the prices are too high (beer 7€ is even there too much!). Oldtown... More

This hotel is absolutely fantastic! There was absolutely nothing lacking and I was particularly impressed with the excellent customer service throughout my 4-day stay.

I cannot give this hotel less than 5 stars only because of it's complete unsuitability for me, which is really to be faulted on my friend who recommended it and clearly doesn't know me at all.......

Thanks for your 5-star review! As you highlighted, W is not for everyone but I am glad you enjoyed our rooms, gym and spa. For your next trip to Barcelona I recommend you try our sister property Le Meridien, which is very centrally located on Las Ramblas.

Writing this review I'm compelled to compare this hotel to another in the brand that I've stayed in and another recent stay in Barcelona of the same grade.

I loved my stay at the W in Barcelona. When you walk in the room, you wonder if maybe you've been upgraded. It's set up like a small suite. The bed is in the middle of the room facing out towards the floor to ceiling windows, so you have a lovely view of the city and the water, day and... More

I stayed at W Barcelone for 5 days for a corporate offsite. The location, design, service, and rooms are what one would expect from the W-brand. However one accident changed my perception and despite positive experiences in other locaitons (Dubai, Qatar) I won't recommend this hotel for foreseeable future.

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.
