We had a fantastic stay at the W Barcelona. The rooms had amazing views - and you cannot beat the location. My only wish is that I was there over summer - because the pool was very inviting. It definitely brings in a posh and chic crowd which I am all about! Would love to come back to this hotel...

Was here on a business trip. This is a great hotel. After an efficient check in I went to my room. This was a corner suite with a bath tub in the living room. The view is fantastic and the bed, bathroom and amenities were excellent. This was really a great hotel and I had a great stay. There was...

After a painfully long welcome at reception at 11am we were advised our room wouldn't be ready until 3pm and we would get a phone call when ready.So we went to beach. Tried a few times to get service but ignored. After 4 hours no phone call so went back to reception where they wanted passport details yet again for...

The location is perfect and the views are breathtaking. We booked a Marvelous Suite which is on the corner with gorgeous views in two directions. The suite is very large. The shower area is huge. The staff is exceptionally courteous. If we return to Barcelona, we would not risk staying somewhere else.

We stayed in W Barcelona for 3 nights and it was one of the worst experience we had ever. At first they made us wait for check in for about 4 hrs saying they haven't received any confirmation from Expedia. When at last they cleared the misunderstanding, they didn't gave us a room straight away saying room is not ready....

A simple request for change of room as it was on low floor facing a public road with nil privacy was flatly refused. Supposedly because we were in a Group Booking. Avoid this Hotel. It makes you feel so unwelcome.

Beautiful place to watch the sunset with amazing views of the city, service could have been faster, glass of champagne 17€ and cocktails start from 12€. Similar price to what you expect to pay in London at a nice hotel.

The hotel has a spectacular views of the city and the sea. Rooms are great and breakfast delicious. But this what you expect for the price. The problem starts with the service. Worse experience I had was a pool bar. The smiling waiters just actively ignore you. You can wait 40min for a drink and then you get something different...

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.
