I stayed at the W for one night only whilst on business in Barcelona. Despite the hoards of screaming teenage girls outside (1 Direction were staying whilst I was there) I had a really great experience. The hotel is modern and funky, the staff were very helpful and polite and my room was amazing. It wasn't cheap - I think... More

The hotel is excellent: the location, the service, the club Eclipse, the many restaurants, friendly staff, good atmosphere, the hotel beach, the room, the view! Points of attention to the hotel are: breakfast is too expensive. It is cheaper (and sometimes better) to get a meal a la carte in one of the hotel restaurants on the beach. Great breakfast... More

My husband and I are huge fans of W Hotels and stayed at the W Barcelona for 2 nights last week. The hotel is next to the beach, a little bit too far to walk into the city but a taxi is around 7 Euros into town and around 30 Euros to the airport. Check-in could be smoother. Long queues... More

Stayed here for one night and wished I could have stayed longer. Not a perfect hotel by any means, but the W Barcelona is a meaningful part of the city and a hotel that simply feels lively and essential. I was upgraded as a Platinum guest to a suite, which was much appreciated, albeit one without much of a view.... More

I normally don't write reviews before staying in a hotel however W appear to be unable to allocate a room on time... If you love waiting in a crowded bus station type of environment I strongly suggest booking the W Barcelona. Checked in at 2:20pm (early but aware that the room would not be available until 3pm). Horrific, disorganized check... More

Fantastic hotel - highlight of our Barcelona trip! We couldn't wait to get back to our room everynight! Location is a bit out of the way if being central is a priority. Best breakfast in Europe, great service by staff and amazing trendy W design Booked a standard room and given one with a beautiful view of the sea!

The location of this hotel is perfect just next to the beach. We stayed here for three days. We absolutely loved the city of Barcelona and this hotel was close to everything. The poolarea was a bit small and you had to be up early to get somewhere to sit. Service was great and the staff was very polite and... More

We just walked in for a drink while in Barcelona for a day and Sergi took care of us in the bar. He was friendly, attentive, and fast. We also had a bite to eat in the bar and, again, the food was excellent and arrived almost as soon as we ordered it. The "W" is a great place to... More
