Nothing better than to be in a W hotel where ever you are in the World, the food and cocktails are to die for. Our waiter Sergi was brilliant, not only was he polite and responsive to our needs, you can see he is passionate about the service he provides you and is willing to help you with any questions...

amazing place to enjoy of Barcelona's views. The hotel is amazing, modern, clean, elegant.. the staff are for you 24h and they are very friendly. Furthermore, the hotel is next to the sea, so the place is very calm due to is separate of the noisy of the city. I spent a fantastic hollidays there.

OK, it's as Spanish as the Statue of Liberty, it's a taxi ride from all the shops and sights and seen from the air when flying into Barcelona it looks like you have arrived in Dubai.

I can't fault this hotel, the location is great, the rooms clean and comfortably furnished and the dining was good too. Obviously it's expensive but with so little of the coastline available in the city this hotel is really the best option. The precinct of small reataurants below the hotel has some interesting dining options too.

on arriving at this hotel from a long trip and costing 35 euros by taxi from the airport I was excited by the design and immediate impression of the hotel. My room was ready and very impressive facing the sea on the 18th floor and a bed to die for literally. I sunk into it and looked around the room... More

Unmistakable in its grandeur as it stands unobstructed on the shores of the city, the W is a good choice for visitors seeking a bit of beach life mixed with the trendy vibe that often is a mainstay of these hotels. It's still relatively new at just 5 years old and is the brainchild of architect, Ricardo Bofill (also responsible... More

There is nothing that can be faulted with this hotel except the mood lighting in the rooms is too dim and it is out of town a bit. However it is a lovely walk along the foreshore into the centre of town. Also extremely helpful and nice staff.

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.
