We spent two weeks at this magnificent beachside hotel. The service was excellent. The pool on the Wet bar deck is rather small. There are lots of spots to sit on either the lower or upper decks. We did find however lots of people “reserved” seats by leaving towels and a book on the chairs and then disappearing for several...

Party on!! This is the party hotel of Barcelona! However, we arrived as a tired family of 6 after an international flight only to find out Sunday was the big pool party with booming trance music until 3a and the disco after that... There was a line out the door with girls looking like, well you know. Not exactly a...

It is a fantastic 5-star property and an exciting place to stay.it is the only hotel with the famous barcelonata beach at the W door.the location is such that you can feel relaxed and isolated on the beach but a quick can ride brings you to the middle of citylife. The Lobby is cool and chic and very avante-garde in...

We stayed here the night before boarding a cruise. I booked this as a special surprise for my parents. Checkin is a disaster - the number of desks is limited. We left several hours at the promise we understood of a higher floor (total stay with dinner for 2 rooms was £1100 so I wanted the best I could get)...

First impressions were amazing! From the outside it's stunning, with the sun reflecting from ever angle. The foyer is modern and open, smells amazing and just pretty cool. The checkin process wasn't very smooth as they couldn't find our lastminute reservation. They gave us two free drink tokens to relax in the bar whilst they sorted it. Receptionist was very...

Super place to stay if a little bit of a walk from the main city. Great restaurants and wonderful outside bar. Sometimes it can be difficult getting a taxi when its busy there but well worth the stay. Prehaps a little expensive. Barca is a wonderful city and so is the W a wonderful hotel.

Upon walking through the doors you notice how hip and metropolitan the lobby is designed and decorated. Although I had to wait for more than an hour before my room was available, I was ok to divide my time between sitting in the lobby and grabbing a small bite to eat in the 1st fl bar/restaurant. I was given a...

Awesome location! Beautiful view, outstanding service by the hotel staff. Food was very good in the hotel. Can't wait to go back! The pool and beach area were just fantastic. Easy to get a cab to gain access to the city but the beach really made it feel like vacation.

Beautiful location with superb beach views. Enough seats at pool and beach. Friendly staff. Rooms are good. The Mix business and leisure is a bit odd. It is not so great to have a group of business execs lurking over the pool terrace at bikinis. The hotel should put these groups elsewhere. Pricing is a little too high nearly at...

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.
