About W Barcelona, Barcelona

Designer beachside hotel near downtown Barcelona

Barceloneta beach address

The W Barcelona's shimmering glass tower, designed by architect Ricardo Bofill, overlooks the waterfront right on the Barceloneta boardwalk. A 25-minute walk from El Born and the Gothic Quarter, the W is perfect for those who want to be central, yet away from the bustle.

Close to city attractions

Guests who stay at the W are primed for some serious swimming and sun-bathing at famous neighboring beaches like San Sebastian and Playa de la Barceloneta. The Museum of Catalonian History, 20 minutes away, is a great way to weave culture into a day of sand surf.

Bliss by the pool

In addition to BRAVO24, where celebrated chef Carlos Abellán dishes up high-end Catalonian cuisine, the ECLIPSE bar offers rooftop views, and SALT serves Californian fusion by the pool. The W also houses Spain's first ever Bliss Spa, alongside a 24-hour fitness center.

City or sea views

Each of the 473 rooms is furnished with a W signature bed and stocked with Bliss Spa bathroom products. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer city or sea views, and the extensive entertainment system features an iPod® docking station, free WiFi, and a 32-inch LCD TV. As an added amenity, the hotel offers rollaway/extra beds.
