Great view but a little chilly for a W Hotel, that is the true...Maybe the reason is the size or the fact that is a little far away from the rest of the city(Barcelona is a walking city and the hotel is in the limit of the center area..) or maybe because they try to build perfection and it became...

Location and architecture are great. But one cannot help thinking that the management and staff just don't really care about you and whether you like it. One does not feel welcome. Luxury everywhere, Fresh Oysters at the 1st level bar, but nobody thinks of providing a seat outside in the sun (in January). There is not a single place in...

The hotel as all W Hotels is very stylish and depends the style of the traveller you are if you will like or not. Even if is not my type of hotel, I can not say anything bad about the hotel itself.

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.
