Stayed at the W for two weeks in August and had a great experience. I was visiting for work so didn't get to participate quite as much as I would have liked in the hotel offerings. Check-in can be a little slow so that is a pain but the front desk staff were always very patient and friendly. The hotel...

I have only stayed at the cool corner suites so I can't speak for the other rooms but can definitely recommend this type - wonderful room with a wonderful view of the Barceloneta. Extremely comfortable beds. The only downside is that when compared vs. Arts Hotel, the restaurants are probably not quite as good but it's still a fantastic experience

I must admit that I love staying at this hotel. Each time I go to a Starwood Hotel I always reference this one. The views are absolutely stunning and the rooms are quite spacious.

Staying at the W in Barcelona is no different than staying at the Fontainebleau in Miami Beach... For many, this sounds great but coming from the U.S. I felt I never left home and although that may be a preference for some I tend to enjoy the cultural differences when traveling halfway around the world. The W undeniably is deserving...

This W Hotel, like most properties in this hotel group, caters to the 20-30 something crowd, and does it very very well. Having said that we were a family of four with kids 8 and 12 and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Indeed it has been requested by said 8 and 12 year olds. Rooms here are not spacious...

This is a very chic hotel with a great location in relation to the beach. The room was huge and the amenities were plenty. Do pick a room on the lower floors as the dance club can be somewhat noisy at night. The gym is very well equipped especially for a hotel. If you want to see the city, walk...

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.
