I cannot give this hotel less than 5 stars only because of it's complete unsuitability for me, which is really to be faulted on my friend who recommended it and clearly doesn't know me at all....... My feeling out-of-place, uncomfortable, and like a foreign un-cool alien traveling solo was hardly because of the hotel, which is beautiful, very cool, and...

Thanks for your 5-star review! As you highlighted, W is not for everyone but I am glad you enjoyed our rooms, gym and spa. For your next trip to Barcelona I recommend you try our sister property Le Meridien, which is very centrally located on Las Ramblas. All the best, Badr Bennis Hotel Manager badr.bennis@whotels.com

Overview: This is definitely one of the best hotels I ever visited, starting from the outstanding customer service, amazing rooms with impressive views, excellent bars & restaurants and great location. While there is a room for improvement (particularly at breakfast), overall it is a fantastic 5 star hotel and place I’ll definitely come back to. Check-in/out & concierge: Check-in was...

I loved my stay at the W in Barcelona. When you walk in the room, you wonder if maybe you've been upgraded. It's set up like a small suite. The bed is in the middle of the room facing out towards the floor to ceiling windows, so you have a lovely view of the city and the water, day and...

I stayed at W Barcelone for 5 days for a corporate offsite. The location, design, service, and rooms are what one would expect from the W-brand. However one accident changed my perception and despite positive experiences in other locaitons (Dubai, Qatar) I won't recommend this hotel for foreseeable future. Here is the story: I booked my stay in advance providing...

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
