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.

Excellent. The staff was perfect, expecially the "Whatever Whenever Manager", who helped us a lot (as we are Italians and we do not speak Spanish), meeting all our needs. The rooms are fantastic, with an impressive view. The Hotel's location is perfect as well, surrounded by peace. We'll surely come back.

The only bad thing I can say about my vacation at the W in Barcelona is that it rained most of the time we were there and that is not the fault of the W! Everything was great.
Sometimes the key to the room and elevator would not work.and that was an inconvenience, but the front desk gave us new keys.

As before, entering the lobby will make you feel at home and welcome. Then getting up to the room - lets you calm down and relax in luxury.

Very nice room.... very W. The service though was strange. The service from guest services seemed fine (the person on the phone was very polite), but the food and bar service was "okay" with the food not-good-at-all. Not what I have come to expect from a W. Fro the value at this location, I say "no".

My wife and I recently stayed for two nights at the W Hotel in Barcelona following our cruise. We can not say enough about this hotel...it was just wonderful from every aspect....the staff, the location, the facilies, everything. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to all our friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Taher W Hotel is the best globally
i have stayed at W Hotel from 19 to 22 may 2013 and i got seven stars treatments, when i arrived to check in i didn't find my room ready and it took them around 45 minutes to prepare it due to that they compensate me free breakfast and free internet connection for all my stay. they are great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steph22 Exceptional staff, beautiful hotel
The staff at the W were truly exceptional--every staff member I encountered was professional, courteous and friendly without being overly so. The hotel is beautiful. My kids loved the pool. The pool seems a little small for the size of the hotel--this mattered because the hotel was fully booked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GGENYC Amazing service only surpassed by the Spectacular views!
Arguably one of the very best W Hotels I've ever had the pleasure of staying in! Amazing service by ALL staff with very good size rooms featuring spectacular views! This W met and often surpassed all of my expectations in a quality, luxury hotel. For the money, the very best buy there is!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Quicksilver Fun hotel with great views
The young and good looking staff were friendly, we security checks were duly exercised but the lower floor rooms can hear the W Lounge quite loudly. Views were fantastic but location is close to only the beach but further from other attractions. Breakfast was good, but not mindblowing.

My wife and i were at this property and were disappointed with the overall quality. Carpets were coming off, sofas were torn and the hallways were worn out with wallpaper coming off. Would not stay at this spg property again. The hotel is a 3 star property and should be tariffed as such.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AlBahrain Poor choice of room service
The lack of vegetarian options for the in room dining was appalling. Margarita Pizza was the only thing I could find.
This is supposed to be an international hotel chain - was expecting it to cater better.
I won't be staying here again for this reason.
Rooms and staff were fantastic.

When traveling overseas one of the biggest things that are essential to a successful trip is being comfortable. My expectations are very high and while staying at the W Barcelona I was very impressed on how great the service was. The staff should be commended for their amazing service.

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 Bouj77 The W continues to uphold its standards
The staff at each W I stay at is consistently professional and very accomodating. I heard this from other guests as well while I was there. Our room was lovely too and all ammenities make the experience even better, but the number one draw will always be the treatment you receive.

"Loved W Barcelone from minute one" I have stayed here few times, every time you guys make my stay excellent. I was impressed with some employees recognizing me back and that was a great touch. Ivano at the bar knew me straight away and the french/Morrocan girl was great too.

The W Barcelona is quite simply a wonderful hotel, I always enjoy my stays there, you can have a relaxing trip or live it up, all without leaving the hotel grounds. I could look at that view from my Fabulous room forever!
The hotel management and staff are second to none!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dan16 This hotel was anything but quiet
Aggressive music everywhere, even sitting at the beach, different music from the pool bar and the beach bar. Not relax, quiet as you would expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ira13 A unique Barcelona experience!
As if the wonderful beach and ambiance of Barcelona is not enough, the W offers a personal touch to a visit to this magnificent city. All the staff treated us in a very gracious way....and we had
a great visit. Hope to come back soon!

I've stayed at plenty of W hotels and this by far is the BEST! Not only is it in one of the best cities in the world, but look at it! It's amazing! How can you be in Barcelona and not want to stay there? Amazing hotel with a great staff and i reccommend it to all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by albans Exceptionnal hotel, but packed in July!
Our stay there was nice, but there's clearly too much people in July and the staff is a bit overloaded... Big waiting time on cocktail orders, trouble to find free spot next to the pool and overall a feeling that there's too much people around.

The position of the hotel makes it amazing, the views from and of the hotel are incredible, however the staff from the manager, to the pool staff, combined with the food make the whole experience truly wonderful!
A huge well done, we all had a fantastic holiday!

Family stay at hotel was great. As platinum member was able to get corner suite upgrade, plus adjoining room. We all enjoyed the stay immensely. Staff was wonderful, had breakfast each morning of stay and dinner in restaurant one night, all being most enjoyable.

Location, facilities and service first class. Rooms are minimalist but chic and well equipped. Wet Deck is a great spot to people watch and relax during the day and party at night. Eclipse is also good fun. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SS44 Great Location if You Like the Beach
If you like a hotel with fabulous views, great amenities and a beachfront location, this is the place in Barcelona. It's a long but interesting walk to the Metro station but there are plenty of cabs at the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and quiet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by cucu1965 Outstanding hotel, wild guests
W Barcelona is in all respects an outstanding hotel, and I was very pleased to stay there. Apart from the obvious - fantastic architecture, outstanding location, great breakfast, room settings etc - I was extremely impressed by the courtesy and efficiency of the staff. Just as an example, your colleagues Patricio and Xavi managed and resolved a misunderstanding at check-in about our suite upgrade in a quick, friendly and easy going way... but I have to say all staff, no one excluded, left with us a very good impression.
In that respect, I have to say that W personnel greatly outperformed W clientele. Unfortunately, many of the guests at the pool - very crowded for the weekend - behaved in a wild, impolite, arrogant and aggressive manner - to the point that we felt threatened and unsafe at times.
Given the small size of the pool, we felt at the end that the private hotel beach was a better choice and we did not regret this decision, which I would recommend to everybody - unless you belong to the evergrowing tattooed, pierced and bodybuilded crowd.
