I had always wanted to stay at the W so I came on here to read reviews before travelling and reading mixed reviews I was abit worried what to expect. We arrived to a sunny Barcelona and the hotel was beautiful, the reception wasnt crowded like previous reviews i had read & the staff were helpful. Our room was on the 17th floor and the view was amazing. The lift, corridors are very clean and the room was very clean and housekeeping were spot on. Breakfast was gorgeous although we turned up at 11:02am and got turned away cs they stopped serving at 11am!! But thats our fault not theirs. The interior design is outstanding and the water feature and pool is lovely, On a sunday night its a hip trendy night where all the chic people come to party which was nice, maybe abit potentious side tho. The restaurants at the front of the hotel are so nice, We had seafood and tapas and the pricing was so reasonable concidering they are nearly attached to a 5 star hotel and with a view to die for. Its about 10 minutes from Las Ramblas and you can walk into the city from the hotel, realy pleasant, all round great stay and would definately visit again. If i had to pick at something ... With it being a 5 star hotel you would expect to be greeted outside of the hotel by staff, opening taxi doors, greeting you, making you feel like you've paid the 5 star costs s its not cheap. The other 5 star hotel "Arts" did have this but thats very minor!
