"Great place to recharge & culture on the doorstep"
My husband and I want to go somewhere we could relax and have culture - here was the perfect place! The W has amazing views and great service, we didn't really need to leave the hotel as it had everything and was so comfortable! I would advise however their recommendations for places to eat aren't always great (avoid Bar Mut who they always recommend […] - but then they treat you like trash when you get there as they have so much business from the W). The W restaurant Bravo was good as was the places under the hotel by the beach. The culture was great in the city and saw lots over the week. The W is right out on the harbour so about 5/10min walk to the nearest metro or 20 mins walk to the centre or you can get a cab outside which is only 5-8 euros to the centre if you don't feel like walking.

"Anniversary with a view"
Expensive but your paying for the view and how can you stay in Barcelona and not stay in this hotel. Patrice (Patrick) on reception lovely. Remember to take your credit card as a gurantee we didn't so had to withdraw cash... One night was just right finshed off our trip in hotel Mirimar which is far superior and food fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfiest bed ever"
The hotel rooms are fantastic - the best shower I have had in a long time and the bed was the best I have ever slept in. Although this hotel costs more than you would expect to pay in Barcelona it was worth every penny and thoroughly recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
This was the best hotel by far we have stayed in.Location was perfect allowing us to enjoy a city break whitest been able to enjoy the beachGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best beach hotel in Barcelona"
We had an amazing time and were well taken care of by all the staff. Pool area was perfect as was the hotel`s own beach area. Service was excellent and extremely friendly. Room was spacious with a breath taking view of the sea. Our flight home was very late in the evening and we had to check out of our room at 12, but the hotel staff took great care […] of us providing us with access to all areas and showers so that we left the hotel relaxed and happy.

"There when you need them!"
We had an unfortunate accident while at the w. the stay gave us first class attention and proved to be well trained in emergency situations (better than us). Barcelona is great and the w pushes it over the top!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel for a special occasion"
Great hotel, went as a treat for wedding anniversary Got a free upgrade to a suite, great views from room of ocean and city Convenient position on beach with nice walks along sea front The lady on the reception desk, Tatiana deserves a mention for her help and was always smiling Would love to go backGenuine Expedia guest review
"great for a chillout, don't share with a stranger!"
Middle aged female travelling alone for one night beachside crashout. Though Barcelona is clearly a weekend stag/hen party destination and this is definitely a Party Hotel, I did not feel I was a total wallflower, due to the great amenities at the hotel and the good staff. Great beach location, either flop by the pool, people watch, go for a walk along […] the boardwalk or try the excellent choice of restaurants both inside hotel and along the boardwalk, all great. Pool area fantastic - staff there really attentive. Room would have got 5/5 , as views are terrific, there is plenty of lounging around space and the bed is fantastic (goosedown duvet, pillows AND mattress cover, very snuggly). BUT agree with other guest reviews that the bathroom arrangement is stupid - loo opens out onto the room (only ok for singles or very close friends/spouses!), there are no towel hooks, the shower room is a victory of style over substance...also hate it when (warm) bottled water is in the room but costs 4 euros a pop AND 14 euros a day for internet access that hardly ever holds up more than a minute at a time. Nevertheless would go back again, great value overall for a 30 + hour stay as a much needed sunny crash pad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Looks good at first glance"
The hotel is good fun and is in an excellent location. There are plenty of restaurants along the beach all within walking distance. However breakfast at 30 euros and 10 extra euros for my 5 year old shows how far this hotel is removed from real Spanish hospitality and run by accountants! I think maybe the W stands for "Without" since nothing is included […] and everything is an extra. We received only one bottle of water for 3 people, complimentary, per night. But they leave plenty of other bottles in the room to tantalise you at the cost of 4 euros for a small one. This is a design hotel a great building very stylish however the finishing details have been done on the cheap. I was very happy to be leaving after 3 nights. One last point , we stayed in Early june the weather was 22 to 25 but the pool was freezing! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"DO NOT DISTRURB"
Whilst this is a fabulous hotel in a great location, it tries far to hard and is far too trendy for its own good and misses some of the basics. One of desk lamps in our room could not be turned off, so we asked for it to be fixed. Upon our retunr from a night out a note had be left to say this had been done. However when we put keycard in socket to […] turnon power the light came on and stayed on! at 2am this was too late to be calling housekeeping and so we went to bed with the light on ( fortunaltey it was of the bendy type so could be directed under the desk ) and the do not disturb sign on the door. We were woken the next morning when the housekeeping turned up to check the light was ok and despite us calling out please come back later the knocking continued. until we answered the door. Not a great customer service. Plus no kettles available to make tea or coffee, undertand that room service is available but when in hotel - which I am frequently relaly appreaite a cup of tea whilst getting ready.

"Relaxing weekend for two"
We decided to stay here for a self indulging weekend staying in a fabulous room. The first night we arrived we found a room with a wet sofa and dirty carpet which was below our expectation. However what they lack in up keep they made up with great service by changing our room the next morning and checking daily that we were happy with our stay. The […] view of our room was amazing and being able to wake up to the Barcelona seaside is really relaxing! The hotel is great in location and the staff is very polite and helpful and we would definitely visit again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Amazing hotel, felt like being at Miami Beach. Very young and hip vibe, which may not be what families and more mature travellers are looking for but was definitely a different experience from most European hotels we have stayed in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Modern hotel with an amazing view of the Mediterranean from the room. Amenities are great, the staff is nice and helpful. The beach and the boardwalk are right downstairs. Will be back for sure.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
the hotel is very modern, and extremely comfortable. it was very clean and very quiet in the rooms. great views over the marina and the beach, and the whole of Barcelona. staff were also very conscious of security, though we felt very safe. lots of restaurants to choose from, and the bar on the top floor, very popular with the young ones. great hotel […] for families and couples.

"Fabulous hotel in stunning location"
This was the best hotel I have ever stayed in, I could not find any faults at all. I would certainly choose this hotel again. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The view from our room was stunning as was the roomGenuine Expedia guest review
gone downhill in the last 3 years - more like a 3 star conference hotel - nothing special apart from views if you are lucky to get a room on high floor . room smelt of smoke and carpets dirty , no turndown service like our last stay when it was opened and no one explains the room control when checking in and gym looks tired. shame when they charge 5 […] star prices. however the new restaurant is very good.

"Great hotel for family"
We had a very nice experience there. All the staff especially the Concierges were very nice when we forgot our bag in a cab. They phoned up and managed to get the cab driver who brought our cab back to us. The Restaurant staff were also very nice and made our breakfast sessions enjoyable. No complaints at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"luxury in a great city."
Hotel had all the luxury you would expect from five stars, although we didn't use most of the facilities everything way available, staff were very polite and obliging. Would have prefered to have been higher than the 2nd floor couldnt see much of the city but its down to price and what you can afford - the view from the 25th was stunning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent but expensive weekend stay"
Very impressive outlook and great first impression. The view from the room was amazing. The bed was extremely comfortable and general condition very good. Our only reservations, as with those before us, include the lack of privacy in the toilet and the absence of any tea or coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel facilities, including the pool, […] gym, bar on the 26th floor were all very good. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Stunning hotel in a great loaction. Possobly the only criticism might be a little too much style over practicality, but I love it.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful beautiful hotel, I had a girlie three days holiday and was very Spoilt would recommend this hotel for pure luxury lGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good but not quite excellent"
Overall the W is hotel of a very high standard albeit let down by some poor finishing & colour schemes in the corridors leading to the rooms. Also we would have preferred a room on a higher floor than the 2nd floor we stayed on to appreciate the views but on the flip side the lift rides were quick. The card system to activate the lifts were also a bit […] tricky to operate & not mentioned at check in. The hotel is slightly further out of the city centre than some others but this makes the hotels surroundings more of a chilled environment & also a pleasant 25min walk or a 10min cab ride & you are in heart of the city. Ordered coffees from room service that arrived cold but were replaced within 10min of calling reception. The elipse bar on the 26th floor is one of the most exclusive nightspots in town but surprisingly small & we preferred the atmosphere at the lounge bar poolside. Finally there was a error on my final bill at check out but this was checked & quickly rectified by the friendly staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fab, can't wait to go back!"
We stayed for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. We had a standard room and it was amazing, beautiful view and super comfortable bed. The staff are brilliant , so friendly and efficient. Cannot wait to go back for a weekend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel with very helpful staff or talent as they are called. AC could be a lot better and accessible rooms should have choice of bath or shower. Architects should realise some wheelchair users find bath tubs easier than wheel in showers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"W Barcelona June 2012"
Fantastic modern hotel right on the beach, with the centre of Barcelona only a short bus ride away which only costs a couple of euro's.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, amazing location and really friendly staff. Only stayed for one night but would definitely recommend based on my experience. Only negative point I can say was the staff weren't very informative. If I hadn't looked up the facilities I wouldn't have known about the gym or the spa etc so make sure you ask questions or research beforeGenuine Expedia guest review
Gorgeous hotel, amazing pool, great rooms. Try to get Fabulous Room for better view. As on the beach, about 10euro cab ride away from centre of town, so not perfect location if you're going for a sightseeing trip to Barcelona, but great to relax by the pool and have fun at the 26th floor bar!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Another great stay"
This was our second stay at W Barcelona and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The design and furnishings in the hotel are second to none, as is the service. The view over Barceloneta beach from the Fabulous rooms is positively awe-inspiring. The only possible negatives are that when the hotel gets busy, it feels very busy (for example, be prepared to wait […] ages for the elevators and then stop at every floor for more people to get in - this can get annoying). Also, the bathroom facilities in the bedrooms lack any privacy whatsoever (the toilet has a glass door which opens directly into the bedroom) therefore pick your partner wisely! Both of these negatives could be improved by the hotel with a little thought and change, I am sure, however. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The W hotel Barcelona is a really funky, modern hotel which is situated on the sandy beach. in Barcelona. Firstly, the hotel really is amazing! We stayed for the Easter weekend and would definitely return. It was busy and lots of people milling around when we arrived, however, I guess this was due to it being Easter... We were really lucky to be on […] the third floor (room 322) The window was floor to ceiling and the view directly looked out to the beach and sea which was incrediable. The room itself was large and modern. The only minor negative was it did not have a bath and the pressure of the huge power shower in the bathroom was not brilliant, however, we also had a handheld shower attachment which was on the wall and that was fine. We had the continental breakfast both mornings which cost euro23. You had plenty of food to choose from. we did queue, however, they brought around orange juice whilst waiting and it could have only been about 10 mins. We also had dinner both nights in the Wave restaurant. I must say that the food is excellent and although quite expensive, this restaurant is well worth a visit. We also went to the bar which was at the top of the hotel and that was lively and buzzing although cocktails were about 14 euros!! Just wanted to say that the hotel is not close to La Ramblas (the shopping/sights) - it's a long walk although I believe you can get a bus outside the hotel or a taxi....

"Barcelona W Hotel 22 - 25 Feb 2012."
I found it a bit dissappointing that they charge 20 EUR extra if you want to use the spa i.e. steam bath or sauna. otherwise found that the service at the bar area was very slow and unattentive, possibly too few staff for the number of guests at the bar. otherwise room was amazing and general interior of hotel great. Would go back but would love to […] see the service improve and the steam and sauna should be free for hotel guests. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This is my 3rd stay this year in barcelona and I have now found the hotel I want to come back to. From arrival to check in they were fabulous. Our room was gorgeous - could have done with it being on a higher floor - we were on the 1st - but realistically my rate with hotels.com was fantastic - so even though we asked to move higher and they said they […] would do their utmost we were happy. Food, atmosphere, pool, chill out area, staff get 5* from me. We will most definitely come back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"W hotel in Barcelona - fab hotel with bad service"
This hotel looked stunning on the website and did not disappoint upon arrival. A gorgeous design hotel which had the best looking staff I've ever seen. However, the location was a bit far out for my liking and they are building right next door although we didn't hear any noise from this. The hotel service was not great. We had a problem at check-in […] and despite being told by phone that our rooms were ready when we went back to reception to get room keys one of the rooms wasn't ready. We then had to wait till 4.30 despite check in being at 3pm. There was also a few problems at breakfast. Big, big queues at both restaurants on both mornings. They don't seem to have big enough breakfast areas to accomodate the number of guests. Also there didn't seem to be enough staff as we had to ask several times for tea/coffe and then had to wait for a long time. Would stay here again but only for a few days to relax and would only go out of season. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

A Room With A View!! Wow, amazing hotel, great views, food, rooms, bar, sun terrace! I didn't want to leave!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"W - WOW!"
I love the Arts Hotel but now have a problem as the W Hotel also sets a very high standard. Both hotels offer exceptional service with great staff. The location of the W offers fabulous beach and sea views. The room was large and very modern. Minor irritations were having to pay for internet access and no plug adapters in the room. The gym is big and […] well equipped. A highlight was watching the bar staff work a very busy Saturday evening - the best and happiest team I have ever seen in action. This hotel lives up to the brand's reputation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel W Barcelona - with exceptional views"
We enjoyed our stay in Barcelona immensely - partly due to our fantastic hotel which was really a 5* ++++ Although quite expensive and we wouldn't neccesarily eat there - the factilities, service and bedrooms were superb; positioned on the beach with breathtaking views. Would def stay there again,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful place to stay but very expensive"
We loved the room and view (we had a Fabulous room). It was large, with a huge rainshower. There was a problem with the hot water but they sent someone to sort it out very quickly. The location is lovely, but not all that convenient as it is a fair walk to the centre (about half an hour) although there are cafes and restaurants closer than that, along […] the beach a little way, and a little further on along the road and at the port. For this reason we chose to stay at the hotel for drinks and dinner the first night but the prices were so inflated that we decided not to do that again. The bar area and restaurants are great but you get the feeling that the hotel is a little 'conceited'. It still irks me that a hotel of this calibre and price still charge for in-room Wi-fi when you get it free at the Holiday Inn and Best Western type places. However, the W are not alone in charging for this as it seems to be the norm for expensive hotels. how refreshing it would be for a top hotel to include it in the price of the room. All in all I would definitely recommend, there are plenty of places to eat and drink in Barcelona for a more reasonable price and returning to this hotel was always a pleasure.
