Rated 5 out of 5 by Jcarp82 Wonderful Stay
My wife and I stayed for four nights in September 2013. The hotel was beautiful, clean and well-located right next to the beach. The staff was very helpful with local restaurant recommendations. I would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a beach retreat or mix of city/beach vacation.

Excellent Hotel with a wonderful atmosphere overall . Modern and really stylish, it makes me thinking if I do compare it with the music at the wet bar side like Fashion TV :-)))

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iamboku Amazing Platinum recognition
Beautiful hotel right on the beach. Guillemo found an upgraded room for us and went out of his way to make sure our stay was Amazing. I have never received such recognition for being platinum. On top of that, the location of this hotel could not be better. We could just walk down the boardwalk and enjoy the beach, food, etc. We are already planning our return to Barcelona and this W hotel.
GUILLEMO"S BOSS, please give him a raise!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Isabel13 Lack of service
Great facilities, great location, but W Barcelona has the worst service ever.
There is no whatever, whenever, staff is unfriendly, room is not ready on time, keys stop working after 1 day, speaking to the supervisor is only possible after multiple attempts.
Some work needs to be done in this W hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelTheWorld Great hotel, slow internet
Great hotel at the beach. Service was great and the staff was very friendly. The Internet WiFi was very slow both from the room and the lobby area.
Not recommended for business trips until the hotel have fixed the WiFi problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Richard270358 This Hotel is World Class
W Hotel Barcelona is ideally situated on the beach in the harbour port of Barcelona. I used suite upgrade rewards and spent all 6 nights on the 25th floor! Even with the discoteque on floor 26, it couldn't dampen my spirits. The "Beach Party" on Sunday nights is extraordinary with live DJ Wally Lopez the guest this past weekend. Wonderful time with an exceptional light show. The restaurants are fantastic and a stroll down the beach boardwalk leads to Tapas Tapas, one of the best local places for over 50 different delights! Staff at the W are amazing and truly extremely helpful. Mucho Gracias Amigos!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Celine77 Reception and welcome outstanding. Beach location among the best in the world.
Aries at the front desk was warm, friendly and welcoming, as well as efficient. She is a credit to the resort. The beach location is among the best I have seen, as a frequent traveler and SPG Gold member. Room and bar service could be improved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Xavier75 Room service food was so so
Great venue, amazing view, good design, overall good service ... But please, the quality of the food for the room service is really not in line with the ambitions and positioning of the hotel. It was really not good, the caesar salad was not a true one and the chicken was oevrcooked and of,poor quality, the benedict eggs were a disgrace ... It should be easy to improve here, especially for that price ! But overall, the stay was glamourous and we enjoyed it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KIRROYALE77 GREAT COUPLE OF DAYS
This is our 3rd stay in the w Barcelona and it hasn't failed to impress again. Having previously stayed at the hotel in the winter months it was nice to visit in September and be able to take advantage of the pool, the pool bar and the very comfortable sun loungers. Our fabulous room was spacious and with amazing views of the sea and coastline. We will definitely be returning for a 4th visit next year!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by stu21 not 5 star service
Disappointed with check in, had to queue for 15 minutes, room not ready until 4pm then only one room was ready, the other was forgot about, had to queue again for another 10 mins.
To make matters worse, renovations started on the second day of our stay in the bar / reception area, the noise was annoying! We were only informed by email 2 days before arriving that the work was to commence during our stay.
This hotel is oversubscribed and cannot cope with full occupancy, what a shame it spoils otherwise a fantastic hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RichW Barcelona at it's best!
My wife and I spent our anniversary trip (13 year) here from September 6 - 13th. This was our first visit to Barcelona, but have stayed at many W hotels in the past.
Without question this is one of the best W hotels in the world. From the first glimpse of the hotel's unique sail shape as you are driving into Barcelona from the airport to it's unique rooms with the best views of any hotel in Barcelona.
We were greeted with warm welcomes (Platinum member with over 100 stays per year). We actually had my suite award nights rejected, which caused me some concern several days before our arrival. As this was a special anniversary trip and wanted our 8 days to be fantastic in a terrific room. Upon our arrival the front desk, indicated that I did not need the upgrades as they had put us in a "Cool Corner Suite" room 1818 which has unreal views of both the City and Beach out of the one floor to ceiling widows and of the ocean out of the front floor to ceiling windows.
The suite was huge, with great sitting, bathroom, bedroom and office area space. What a delight!
The service, restaurants at the hotel, and all the staff were - WONDERFUL.
If you are looking to stay in Barcelona and have the best of all worlds - Beautiful Beach just outside the hotel, Unbelievable and Spectacular Views and short stroll to the city center of Barcelona - look no further as you have arrived at the W in Barcelona!
Thank you so much for the great accommodations and service you provided my wife and I on our anniversary holiday!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dkp1 What a W is supposed to be
We love the W brand even if some of them have been a bit run down in recent years. Not so with the W Barcelona. It's a spectacular site at the end of the beach. Everyone speaks English as well as Spanish of course. The service is impeccable and the room was large. The shower is a bit odd as it opens up into the room and also the WC offers no privacy if you like that sort of thing.
We went to the Eclipse Bar every night and it is quite a party - especially on Sunday night.
The pool and beach area are very nice and again excellent service. A standout being a young server named Georgiana who helped us secure a seating area and champagne when we showed up to the pool party on Sunday night and found it extremely crowded.

i have stayed for 2 weekends in W. rooms were on 2nd and 3d floors. There are no view at all and it doesn't make sence to stay in W in this case. Moreover a lot of room equipmet was not working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bingodog Fantastic under all aspects
Fantastic hotel, location is perfect - just a bit away from the city center to have a "beach resort" feeling, and still in a few minutes you get everywhere by taxi.
The staff are really fabulous - w/w service is top notch, restaurant, beach and pool staff friendly and helpful, no attitude at all.
Hotel was fully booked and still got an upgrade to a fabulous room with amazing views. Room is very spacious and very hip for a couple. Perfectly sound proof too.
Online live chat and W app work perfectly to get in touch with w/w, in fact even better than the phone.
I can't be more happy with this hotel, and I can't wait to be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JJansen This hotel is amazing!!!
We had such an amazing experience at the hotel.
Points to enhance. A possible shuttle service to the airport would be great. The concierge could be a bit more polite.
Overall, the suite we had was lovely. We loved the room and the hotel was in an optimal location to enjoy the water and beach.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Petra1978 Bathroom :-(
We enjoyed our stay,but what we didnt like about our room was: we were missing the privacy in the bathroom( just glass door separating it from the sleeping area).it was not possible to use the bathroom without letting everybody in the room know and show..:-( and also the beds-are so soft,that you have a feeling of sleeping in the hammock..not comfortable and you have your back in the pain after the night..otherwise we were satisfied..

Rated 5 out of 5 by Willyfog2 Wonderful summer trip
I'm already a frequent guest at W Barcelona and every time both the hotel and the staff exceed my expectations. Definitely the place to be in the summer time! Great atmosphere and excellent experience to enjoy a few days in Barcelona. Even though the hotel was almost full, the Welcome Desk managed to get me upgraded to a fantastic Cool Corner Suite. The views have no equal and the rooms together with all the facilities are really amazing. All the staff is extremely friendly and pay attention to every detail to make your stay unforgettable. If you are a Platinum SPG, make sure you get in touch with the W Insider for an even more special attention.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Werner22 The WOW Effect.
When you arrive at the W Hotel - it is like meeting friends and when you leave it is like leaving home.
This is because the guys outside when you arrive with the taxi do an extraordinary job.
They have just a warm, relaxed spirit.
And the people at the concierge desk do an outstanding job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Dima999 waiting time for check-in
very nice hotel .. but terrible waiting time at check-in. 4th time we try the hotel. Always same story. Rooms are not ready before 6pm and check-in time takes an average of 20 to 30 minutes. Very unprofessional staff in the hotel. Average of 25 years old. Pretty faces but so inefficient ..
Where is the boss ???

I like the hotel . i enjoyed the view :) i like ghe concergie service they were excellenr staff.
however the cleanses of the room was not as required.
The hotel team has to make sure that the bed sheets and pillows are clean before any guests come to the room.
also the Internet service in room was quite expensive.
I also expect more Arabic food in the Menues but there was no variety of it.
In general W hotel is a well known trade mark which we will always be loyal too.
All the best
