“Night Club review at the top of 'W' Hotel in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

Upon entering the hotel and exclusively escorted by staff to the private elevators taking my friends and I up to the night club/lounge on the top floor, we made our way through the chique interior and delved into some bubbly and dancing. The place is filled with lots of pretty people and great to engage in meeting some fun ones. Eye candy abundant too for the ladies!
Service was supreme and a table was cleared for my friends and I when we entered and ordered the champagne.
Give it a try. Views are sweet,, in every aspect!!!

Stayed April 2011, travelled with friends

beautiful hotel - very stunning, but service is poor. Service is very cold. I even wrote a letter to the manger about a problem I was having I did not get a response at all - not even an apology! Besides the service my room AC did not work - and this building gets very hot because of the sun and the ocean. I noticed a lot of outside guests in the hotel hanging out and next time if I am in the mood for a 14 euro mojito - I may stop by as well . I will NEVER stay there again

Room Tip: rooms are hot - you will sweat. The ocean and sun make the building warm.

Everything about this hotel screamed luxury! Being SPG members we were immediately upgraded to a high floor room...with a view that is amazing!

From the food, to the pool, to the beach, to the service, this is one of the bet hotels I have ever stayed in.

Bravo W! Thanks for making our European trip even more incredible

New hotel with everything you could imagine, and great views. Hip and trendy, its for the younger or party people. If you are like us and are looking for more sophisticated/less beach-y oriented (its very much like Muscle Beach or South Beach), then this is not the place to stay. IF you are looking for the mediterranean version of any of the aforementioned - then location is great.

Just got back from a weekend break in Barcelona and stayed at the W Barcelona.The hotel is a impressive building. As we arrived in the morning there was a queue at the check in which was not very well organised. Must admit the check in process was quite slow.When we were eventually seen to by the receptionist we were informed that the check out times were 3.00pm and that they will call us when the room was ready.

We then decided to have a look at the pool area and sea which was really nice and we decided to have coffee before we explore Barcelona. The receptionist was very kind and offered us a voucher for our coffees which was a nice touch.While we were seated we were approached by one of the hotel customer services staff called Jeremy. Jeremy welcomed us to the hotel and sat down with us and explained the best places to visit in Barcelona.We really had no plan and his advice was absolutely invaluable. We have the highest praise for Jeremy, he was professional and guided us on exactly what to visit and where, and how to travel around the city. Jeremy acted on his own, was polite and our weekend break was wonderfull because of his advice. We feel he is a fantastic asset to the hotel.We feel this was wonderfull customer service from the hotel.We intend to write a special letter to the management ensuring that Jeremy passed our compliments.

When we got back from a great day in Barcelona, we were noticed that teh hotel had already left a call on our mobile earlier to let us know our room was ready.We went up to our room (215) which was wonderfull.Very clean and maintained. The highlight off course is the fact that you overlook the sea.We had a great minbar in the room, which more than made up for having no coffee making facility. Overall great room.

There are several restaurants within the hotel which are lovely and serve great food but can be quite pricey which is acceptable as you have the best location overlooking the beach. The clean the beach everymorning and this is fantastic.The only issue we had was with breakfast where we felt the dining hall is understaffed.We were served quite cold tea which was a negative.

We did visit the Eclipse bar which gives you wonderfull views of Barcelona at night worth the vist to see the view. Drinks are not that expensive. In fact we found the prices of the drinks in the hotel quite reasonable compared with the bars in the city.We felt the lobby bar and the bar by the pool were great and service was good.

Overall a nice hotel with staff who are very frendly and make sure they show that the apprciate you staying with them. We had a lovely time at the W Barcelona

Room Tip: Any room a good , but of course the higher you are the better view.

First word, wow. From checking in, the girl was very friendly, took the time to chat and assist us with tips and help with exploring Barcelona. The bar staff were all very friendly and always on hand. The room was perfect, and very clean. The only thing there was a stain on the window seat that was covered up by the table and the plugs was did not seem to like plug adaptors. Kept coming out and the power completely cut out at one point.
The hotel is not central, but very easy to get into town. It was lovely staying on the beach and very relaxing to escape the city after a day of sightseeing. Drinks are a little dear, E5 for beer, E12 - E15 for cocktails, E5.50 for glass of wine. But its nice as a treat. We stayed whilst it was my friends birthday and the hotel delivered a W cake, which was a nice surprise.

Room Tip: ask in advance for a high floor, with a beach view
