This hotel's most valuable asset is it's employees, who are top notch. The hotel is nice, but perhaps needs a remodel in some areas. We stayed on the 2nd floor and had a view of the ocean. The rooms have a large bed which faces the large glass windows. The room had a glass shower and toilet area, separated by a frosted glass between the bed area and these areas. We have seen this in other hotels and found it no less strange. The check in personnell and the hotel's restaurant "Fire" are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is excellent. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

Great stay. Although very large and busy the hotel is well organised. The staff and very friendly and helpful. The vibe is very cool and modern. Our room had a beautiful view of the old cable car, the beach and most importantly the sea. The breakfast buffet was excellent with international favourites and local specialties. We loved the French toast, praline filled brioche and the açai bowls. Dinner at Noxe was spot on with great food and attentive service. Pool area is a little small and we had to wait for someone to leave to get seats by the pool. The only negatives I have were a dog yapping from a nearby room and the noise of the spinning sessions on Saturday morning by the pool. Overall excellent I would stay here again.

Had an amazing stay here on a city break. The check in was seamless with Varum and Marlon, who upgraded our room with amazing views across the port/beach from 20th floor. Breakfast was lovely but recommend ordering off the menu as buffet was relatively cold. We also had room service and burgers are highly recommended. It was my birthday and they delivered a beautiful cake to my room. Lots of nice little touches. Location was good for beach, weather wasn’t great though and quite windy. Would definitely stay here in season. Around 20 minute cab journey to La Rambla, around €12. All in all, great stay here in Barcelona and highly recommend this hotel.

We have stayed in some lovely hotels and this has been by far one of the best. I don’t normally write reviews but wanted to take the time to share how impressed I have been. The staff really make it, everyone from the concierge, bar staff to restaurant staff take the time to ensure you are having an enjoyable stay and go above and beyond to accommodate you. We had excellent restaurant reviews and were handed umbrellas at the front door when it was raining outside and taxis called to the front door. The concierge staff recommended some lovely restaurants and they took the time to print out maps for us. Honestly the service is faultless. The hotel itself is incredible, the rooms have amazing views it’s breathtaking! We went to the bar on the top floor and the barmen made incredible cocktails! What a fantastic experience. Thank you W hotel for making our experience so enjoyable. Thank you we will be back to stay again! Nick and Selina

After several previous visits to Barcelona decided to stay at the W Wanted to be on the water this time Boy glad we did Got upgraded to a suite due to platinum status with Bonvoy Appreciate the fact that they honoured the status given how busy this hotel is Suites are on lower floors but are perfect for viewing the water and skyline They are huge , modern,clean and bright Loved loved loved Very quiet floor and suite was soundproof Not sure how we can ever stay elsewhere Was so nice to go for daily walks along the boardwalk and enjoy the spectacular views Very busy city but manageable in February Would stay away during summer and heavy cruise ship months Restaurants were always busy and served delicious food Make sure you book in advance

The hotel is fantastic, my wife and I have stayed in other Marriott hotels in Barcelona, The W is the number 1 in our opinion. The staff are polite and attentive, the house keeping and cleanliness first class. We had previously been apprehensive to stay at the hotel due to comments relating to noise and service, we had no such problem and can recommend the hotel. We are Platinum Elite members and have stayed in lots of hotels, the W Barcelona will be a return visit.

We visited this hotel to go to the cocktail bar on 26th floor for a drink & nibbles & to get the view! The bar opened at 7pm for people to visit, We arrived at 7pm to be told to wait outside until spaces came available for us to go up, they made us wait for over an hour outside in the cold & wind! I understand that we wasn't staying at this hotel & they was very busy We wasn't impressed as we could of queued in the lobby area! Not treated very nice by the door staff, but when we was let in the staff at the Noxe bar were so lovely & attentive, the cocktails were amazing, well worth the visit. Just would of been nice to of been treated better at the beginning of the visit.

My husband took me to the W hotel for my birthday....we have stayed in various W hotels across the world so do have certain expectations. This hotel did not disappoint..it is in a fabulous location near to beach and bars..the hotel itself was clean and smelt fresh on arrival.. check in was smooth and easy. Our room was beautiful...if I had to pick on something..I would suggest the carpet needed a better hoovering but as a whole the room was clean and very modern. The only negative was the housekeepers took ages to come to the room...we had been out early most mornings and I enjoy coming back to a fresh room but this didn't happen for our whole stay..one day we returned at 5pm and our room hadn't been touched😞. Still...the hotel is lovely, the staff friendly and professional. Definitely recommend and return...also lovely spa service and areas clean...wonderful breakfast selection and great breakfast staff...thank you W Hotel👍

Our stay was a really nice experience. The view from our room was incredible, especially the sunrise that you can see from an high point of view. Our room was really comfortable and practical. Their breakfast is costly but worthy of: lot of choice and nicely fresh. One of the best moment was our check in, the lady from reception was amazing, unfortunately I forgot her first name but I remember she is originally from Morocco. She deserve a bonus, due to her customers service skills and all the tips she gave us about Barcelona. She make our experience incredible.
