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

Top location on the beach. Rooms have impressive views on the sea and/or Barcelona city, the higher you are the better your view. Rooms are spacious and nicely designed. Well thought through. All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Congratulations. Super breakfast with lots of choice and also the possibility to eat outside on the terrace. Lovely pool area... More

We recently visited Barcelona and were staying at the Le Meridien but decided to switch over for one night to check out the W on the beach. We did not regret our decision! Pep, a Winsider manager took extremely good care of us and as Starwood status members were upgraded to an amazing suite overlooking the Mediterranean. We only wished... More
