I recently stayed at the W for a conference, on the 23rd floor, had amazing views, blah, blah, blah - I can't argue with the positive reviews of the hotel. It was a great location on the sea - but too far away from the business center of Barcelona; it was a beautiful view and a nice (maybe overly decorated/designed)...

Great location by the water, big rooms with floor to ceiling windows and amazing views. Decor,furnishings and facilities are typically W. Busy hotel. Really good during the summer as it is located on the beach. Beautiful pool area and food is good. If your into jogging then there is the perfect option outside your door along the beach.

I will start at the beginning as it gets better. Dreadfully slow check in and disappointing foyer which looks drab and tired. However, GREAT rooms, views, pool area, staff etc etc etc. Definitely better than staying in the centre, this is on the beach and near a marina. If you want the centre it is easy to get to. We...

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.
