This hotel had everything! the most beautiful view across the beach and sea, the rooms were more than perfect..best bed I have slept in! The staff were so friendly and their english was impeccable. Breakfast was a selection fit for a King. I really enjoyed staying here.

We stayed for my birthday, first impressions are fabulous as you drive up to the hotel entrance up the large drive and see butlers waiting your arrival. The whole hotel is ultra modern the lifts have tv screens showing the hotel facilities and sights of Barcelona we stayed on a high floor with a fabulous view of the beach. The rooms were beautiful with a floor to ceiling window and chaise/sofa directly under with a tray in the middle with Bombay gin vodkas and monin mixers, the actual
Mini bar held anything you Could want it was more like a shop with CDs havaianas champagne drinks snacks etc! With walk in shower and the bed in the middle of the room facing the view.. Perfect! We ate in Bravo 24 which is well deserving of the Michelin star food was beautiful and service brilliant, we made use of the spa which was indoor with a fee of about €20 pp facilities were lovely, the lounge with complimentary wines beers magazines and snacks were well worth it. The pool area was also modern & spacious overlooking the beach, We drank in the Eclipse sky bar which is really lively until the early hours with breathtaking views and your own lift attendant to take you up (you won't go in with strangers only with your own friends) giving a very exclusive feel. All in all a fantastic hotel with the wow factor and VIP service. We would defiantly return! While your there make sure to visit gaudis park and the bars and resteraunts along the beach have beautiful views food and CDLC turns into a nightclub into the early hours!

Stayed March 2013, travelled as a couple

We didnt stay at this hotel but we partied here for New Year's Eve in the W Lounge. The atmosphere was great, a mixture of all ages and the staff were very attentive. The fireworks were amazing! Great way to see in the new year!

W Barcelona is a very stylish hotel-although it is not style over substance. The staff were very helpful-especially the 'whatever' desk. The view from the bedrooms are amazing! I thought the Eclipse Bar which local people flock to was very disappointing and in my view looked very dated and like something from the red light district. However the bellinis were lovely and again the views spectacular. The problem with the W Barcelona is its strength-the location! You have amazing views of the waterfront but it is quite a distance from the centre and you have to rely on taxis, which are readily available at the taxi rank outside the hotel. You can walk to the old port in about 10-15 mins. The other problem is the crime in the area-I had my bag snatched by what was clearly a professional gang so do not go out with iphones, cash etc

Although not in the middle of the city, one can experience Barcelona at it's finest by staying here...sleek yet elegant, spacious yet cozy, this hotel has it all....even a hopping nightlife....close to the beaches and a reasonable walk to the gothic quarter, and if you feel like cabbing it...there is ample staff to assist you immediately!

Room Tip: There are 2 sides to the hotel....beautiful rooms with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Barc...
