“Take me back”
Reviewed February 10, 2014 via mobile

I absolutely loved this place! It's in the best location and the drinks on the terrace late night are so much fun listening to cool music and winding down is great. Good rooms and the higher you are the better the view and I love it. There are a few restaurants next to the hotel which are worth visiting.

We were there to celebrate my 50th birthday and we had an amazing stay at the W. The room had a spectacular view of the sea and harbour, The beds were very comfortable and the walk in shower was fantastic. There was a large selection at breakfast including a wide range of fresh fruit, fish, meat, breads and pastries. The staff were professional, polite and helpful. It is a bit of a walk to the attractiosn but there is always a line of taxis outside or three busses stop at the bus stop two minutes walk from the front door. We never waited more than two minutes for one to arrive and it is only 2euros. It was a lovely surprise to return to our room on my birthday and find a delicious chocolate dessert waiting for us. Thank you for helping make my birthday very special.

I had a room looking down to the Barceloneta and it was fantastic. The room was comfortable and well-appointed, no complaints at all. The only drawback is the location - it's a bit of a walk to get anywhere interesting, but who doesn't enjoy a stroll along the beach in Barcelona? For you shoppers, there is a big Desigual store right next to the hotel. I recommend this place but only if you get a room facing the town, as the view is what it's all about.

We stayed in the spectacular suite on the 21st floor which was a lovely appointed suite with a large terrace overlooking the ocean. A very large lounge and large separate bedroom also overlooking the ocean with two WC's and modern bathroom with a bath in the bedroom. The suite was modern and high tech as most W hotels are everything worked and a grown up mini bar was also part of the suite. Room service started a little slow at first but raised their game for the rest of our stay and did a good job.Concierge was on the ball taking care of most of our requests. Overall we had a lovely stay and loved the suite nice area for long walks along the beach and into the city.
The only department that let the side down a little was house keeping very in inconsistent and didn't clean the terrace properly during our stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2115 really nice

Dear Guest from Gante,

Thanks for choosing W for your stay in Barcelona and thanks for sharing your suite experience with other travelers. I am very happy to read that the Spectacular Suite was as per your expectations, and that you were able to enjoy the large terrace the suite has. Imagine the Spectacular Suite in summer time!

However, I have taken good note of your comments regarding the cleanliness of the room, especially the terrace, and thanks for this useful feedback. The issues you have raised have already been addressed to the Director of Style and appropiate action taken to prevent any guests being similarly inconvenienced in the future.

I look forward to welcoming you again to W Barcelona. Thanks for the interest shown again on our hotel.

Yours sincerely,

Hotel Manager

Some say it's too far from downtown, we think it's a fabulous hotel with an outstanding view onto the city, IF you book that side.The rooms are amongst the nicest we've stayed in. Modern and the layout just makes you feel like your in a stunning apartment. Beds facing the windows, remote control curtains....first thing in the morning a view of one of Europe's most beautiful cities by the click of a button! Great restaurants at the beachfront, which don't all belong to the hotel. Staff mostly very young, super friendly, chatty and above all very helpful! A wonderful stay!

Room Tip: It pays off to have the view towards the city!

The service is absolutely great, and every staff made you feel you are so special. We booked a sea and city view room, which is fabulous. When you look though, you just feel like you are looking at a picture. I will definitely recommend the hotel to my friends. Also, it is easy to find out, you will see the big W from far away, which is not able to lost.

Room Tip: I would say the sea and city view room is much better than the harbour view room.
