Stayed in this hotel with three friends for a long weekend. Our check in on the friday was quick and efficient. We had lovely spacious rooms on the 18th and 19th floors. The rooms are bright, clean and modern. The views are great. The taxi fare into barcelona averaged 10 euro. So a couple might find it a bit expensive....

Great hotel! Away from the hustle of the city center, but within a 10 minute taxi drive to Placa Cataluyna (city center). Very global, the staff was very professional and went the extra mile with excellent customer service. I was upgraded, which is always a plus. Rooms are very spacious and every amenity you could imagine is within your room...

My husband and I recently stayed at the W for him to run the Barcelona marathon.

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.
