The W Barcelona was easily one of the coolest, nicest hotels I have stayed at in my life. The place was always clean, top of the line service, right on the beach, beautiful pool, and hip, sexy crowd. Something special happened after I checked out though! When I got to the airport to travel to my next destination, I realized... More

My husband I stayed at the W on the night after leaving a cruise ship. The hotel is hip and modern and the guest bedrooms large and well-equipped. We were put in one of the rear sea view rooms which have a fairly boring view. The better rooms overlook the beach and pool. I found the bed too soft but... More

My husband and I stayed at the W Barcelona from June 22-28. When we first arrived it was a Sunday morning and we were a little concerned because we weren't initially greeted by the hotel staff nor did anyone help to bring in our luggage. We decided to let this go and make the most of our day while waiting... More

Just completed our stay at the W Hotel In Barcelona. The staff was wonderful. Always greeted with a smile. They all went out of their way to be helpful. We had a corner room overlooking both the harbor and the Mediterranean. Amazing view! Room was very nice. Just beware that the shower water may run all over the bathroom...make sure... More

Am a Platnium guest and I will give you the good, the bad and the ugly for which you can then decide if you concur. Good: Amazing views, super chic and trendy, beachfront access, nice breakfast buffet, continental room service exceeds US standards as far as what is included, sexy bellman, pool area, room lighting and automatic drapes were impressive....

Located right at Barcelonita beach the W definitely is the hot spot in Barcelona.I love the spacious guest rooms with full blown view of the sea. The friendliest staff great food and almost every night with great events at wet deck and on the rooftop. My preferred hotel in Barcelona.

I recently stayed at the W with my family and I have to say that the hotel definitely met our expectations. Particularly good for us was the pool area where we enjoyed great views over the beach front while relaxing in the glorious Barcelona sunshine. The service we received was excellent - really friendly and personal, particularly from the ever-smiling... More

What a great place to stay in Barcelona! We had a wonderful check in experience with Cristina. She was very apologetic as she thought we had waited in line too long, we were only there maybe 5-10 minutes. We had a beautiful view of the beach and pool area. Very, very quiet and the room was amazing! Would definitely recommend... More

We upgraded when prompted via email after initial booking to a fabulous room and we fortunate to get a view over Barcelona. Stunning room. What struck us most is the concept behind W hotels - totally unstuffy, young happy staff and nothing is too much trouble, just ask anything. We did just this, so had great advice on where to... More

Service was absolutely wonderful. The staff was extremely polite and helpful. The view from the room was breath taking and the bed was extremely comfortable. The rain shower was unbelievable. We didn't try the pool since we were right on the beach. The beach was well maintained as well.
