I was absolutely amazed by the architecture of W Barcelona hotel when I arrived, it's a building from Roberto Bofill architect. Inside it's very modern and the design is beautiful.
W Barcelona is located at the very end of Barceloneta area. The location is very pleasant because it's really nice to be in front of the sea, but it's not in the center of Barcelona. The metro station is about 15-20 minutes walking, it's easier to take a taxi (hopefully taxis are not expensive in Spain).
My room was located on the 14th floor, very large, with a comfortable bed, top quality linens, some sofas in front of the window, a stunning view (see picture), a power shower , great design, probably one of the best hotel rooms i've stayed in. Curiously the wifi is not for free in the room, you have to go to the living room (lobby area) for free wifi.
The living room has plenty of sofas and a bar, it's a very nice place to relax at any time of the day.
Excellent buffet breakfast and food at Wave restaurant.
The weather was not good enough to swim, but the pool is quite small, it's more a bathing pool rather than a swimming pool (but you are in front of the beach if you want to swim).
On the 26th floor there is a bar and nightclub, Eclipse, very busy on weekend nights.
Overall it's a fantastic hotel with excellent service, one the nicest hotels where I've been.
