“Stunning view”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

perhaps the best view of beach in Barcelona. The view, service and room are 10/10, the location is perfect for beach but there is some distance to downtown. Facilities are well equipped, rain fall shower, ipod/iphone dock, electronic curtain, philips changing mood lamp, lights down the bed/sofa, silent a/c and full barwares that you can expect.

We stayed here for a weekend from the 9th of jan for 3 nights. The hotel excesses my expectations. The rooms are fabulous, most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, stunning view of the harbour from the bed! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, we used he spa for a massage and that was also very good. We really enjoyed the nightclub at the top of the hotel and the restaurant in the lobby was excellent too.
We ordered breakfast in bed for my birthday morning and when the waitress found out it was birthdays she came right back with two beautiful cocktails and a tray of delicious macaroons. We will be staying again soon!!

This is the first time staying @W Barcelona and it totally lived up to my expectation.

You could expect the hip and chic look of a standard W, not quite as glam as W Bangkok but nonetheless cool. Room was spacious with the whole integrated look, which some might find it lacking in privacy. (I personally loved it as the light from the huge window just shine right through the whole space) Service was great, at least with front desk. The rest of the staff in other departments can be a bit lacking in both language as well as general knowledge of the hotel. A minor annoyance was the lack of wifi, still. We comfortably survived on mobile connection but one would expect wifi should come as box standard.

Location wise. I actually find it ideal as it is away from the main tourist area and thus quiet and relaxing. Only 20 min walk to old town and a bus ride away to main centre, (17 bus @ 2.15 euro) transport is excellent to all major sites.

All in all, a great stay.

Dear Guest from Dubái,

Thanks for sharing your recent experience at W Barcelona with other travelers. Thanks for staying with us for the 3rd time. I am very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay with us one more time.

With regards the smoking floor, indeed, the 6th floor is the smoking one, and I am terribly sorry if you were located there and you are not a smoker. Next time you stay with us, please feel free to request a room in a different floor, and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Hope to see you soon again back at W Barcelona!
With kindest regards,

Hotel Manager

Just a fantastic property. Rooms are wonderful and the views are incredible. We only stayed a few days, but we ate mostly on property. The food was great. Each elevator landing provided just stunning views of the city or Mediterranean sea. This property is a great experience.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking sea.

Best location in Barcelona. Lobby kind of "cold and unpersonal" but rooms are stunning. Make sure to have view over the city /beach. Very good breakfast offered, In Europe currently the best W Hotel. Returning each year and only stay there !

Me and my new wife stayed at W Barcelona as a short honeymoon. We wanted somewhere to make 4/5 days feel really special and this hotel didn't disappoint! Fantastic views from our room, excellent room service and top quality accommodation. Clean, modern and beautiful design which fits right in with modern Barcelona.
