First impressions were amazing! From the outside it's stunning, with the sun reflecting from ever angle. The foyer is modern and open, smells amazing and just pretty cool. The checkin process wasn't very smooth as they couldn't find our lastminute reservation. They gave us two free drink tokens to relax in the bar whilst they sorted it. Receptionist was very... More

Super place to stay if a little bit of a walk from the main city. Great restaurants and wonderful outside bar. Sometimes it can be difficult getting a taxi when its busy there but well worth the stay. Prehaps a little expensive. Barca is a wonderful city and so is the W a wonderful hotel.

Upon walking through the doors you notice how hip and metropolitan the lobby is designed and decorated. Although I had to wait for more than an hour before my room was available, I was ok to divide my time between sitting in the lobby and grabbing a small bite to eat in the 1st fl bar/restaurant. I was given a... More

Awesome location! Beautiful view, outstanding service by the hotel staff. Food was very good in the hotel. Can't wait to go back! The pool and beach area were just fantastic. Easy to get a cab to gain access to the city but the beach really made it feel like vacation.

Beautiful location with superb beach views. Enough seats at pool and beach. Friendly staff. Rooms are good. The Mix business and leisure is a bit odd. It is not so great to have a group of business execs lurking over the pool terrace at bikinis. The hotel should put these groups elsewhere. Pricing is a little too high nearly at... More

Overall - Wonderful hotel with a great location and room, fantastic service and amazing cocktails. We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in July and absolutely loved it. We got to the hotel past midnight on a Sunday and the hotel was poppin' with people because they had a popular DJ playing at their pool bar. The receptionist also... More

The w is great! However is is far enough from everything it's easy to get stuck at the hotel. This place is pretty sweet however they Re a bit weird about ice... It's extra pricy to eat here but the views and the rooms definitely make up for it.

Waking up in the morning with beach view is the most amazing thing to start up the day. Rooms was nice, service was great and I pretty much enjoyed the breakfast! Need more than a bit of walking to get to the train station though.

W is the best hotel in Barcelona. I have stayed in a dozen different hotels in this city. W has the best location. Sometimes the best offers among luxury hotels. W belongs to SPG, which is the best hotel loyalty program ever (nine hotel chains). W has great outdoor facilities, pool and its own beach. Great breakfast and a fantastic... More
