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 Singatravel A place to remembre
This hotel is the best hotel in Barcelona. The location is a bit out from the city centre so taxi is required to go to the main shopping areas (not more than 10 min with taxi) but it is located on the beach so it has its own unique features. Staying at the W Barcelona in the summer season must be spectacular! The service is very good - Asian standard. That should say a lot for a hotel in Europe where service levels usually are lower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jim1886 This hotel has a superb location
I was very impressed with the staff, who were capable of working on their own initiative.
A minor difficulty that I had with my safe was sorted out within 5 minutes of reporting it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ClayP1974 The Best W I have ever stayed at.
From the moment I arrived this was an awesome experience. I have stayed at W's in the US including Hollywood and Scottsdale, but none come close to the service, style, room and location of the W Barcelona. Xavier with the Insider team had everything arranged for my stay and treated me like a true VIP. I have never been treated better as a Platinum than here. This was a great experience beginning to end. Thanks for a great stay!

Although we come to this hotel every year, some times more than once, we have found this hotel now need some maintenance, especially in the rooms. We had booked four rooms, one which should not have been used due to the shower leaking out onto the carpet (which some of the carpet had been replaced) so must have known, and the toilet door didn't close.Really bad.!! Also the plug to the sink was broken along with our room also.

Rated 4 out of 5 by swannie1 Great location, awful bathrooms, some staff lack good people skills
The bathrooms are ridiculous, there should be an actual room that you can close off from the main bedroom. The staff in general were very friendly but certainly not the Whatever Whenever staff and absolutely not the 2 girls that stand by the door out to the pool area who are frankly just rude! Having to request a turn down service in the evening in a 5 star hotel is crazy, cleanliness of the room could have been better.

Rated 5 out of 5 Amazing, awesome,...
There are not enough words to describe the W Hotel in Barcelona. My stay was perfect. The hotel and room are really beautiful. The view is amazing. The personal/service met all my requirements for a 5* hotel. They were so helpful and smiling. I miss only an interior swimming pool... And also It's pity that we have to pay 20EUR for one hour to enjoy the sauna/Turkish bath and jaccuzi...
Otherwise, everything was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bobaustin Surprisingly great location!
When we first booked this hotel we were warned that it's beach location was great but you'll have to take taxis everywhere you want to go. But we loved walking on the beach, and we loved walking down the boardwalk to eat at places like Can Majo in Barcelonetta, and we loved walking to the El Born area for shopping and more eating/drinking.
We will definitely be back to Barcelona and we're definitely staying here!

I have been in the Travel industry for 20+ years and consider myself a seasoned Traveler. I aboslutely loved the W Barcelona!!! The staff was incredible, they could not be more accomodating. We had a fantastic time celebrating a friend's milestone birthday. The W staff made this holiday exceptional. Hotel is beautiful. Beach was great. Fun by the pool. It was a European dream. Planning to go back next year!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TKE1947 The hotel is an icon and our stay there was as memorable as the hotel itself
This hotel is stunning to look at. The location is great. The staff, rooms and facilities all live up to the high standards set by the architecture. The views from the rooms were stunning. The restaurants we ate at were great. We loved the "living room" concept in the main lobby where you could go and access free wifi. If we are ever fortunate enough to return to Barcelona, this is where we will want to stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoanSherlock Wonderful experience except for dry cleaning service
My week at the W was wonderful in all ways with the limitation of the Dry Cleaning. An expensive wool turtleneck was returned smaller by approx. 4 sizes. Good for a four year old, but not a tall woman. the hotel to it's credit is following up on this, I'm looking forward to resolution. I am being helped by Miriam.Vico.

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 5 out of 5 by Cina10 Great location and view.
Great location and view. Relaxing and diverse atmosphere vs. other hotels in Barcelona. Breakfast super.
Need just to improve the cleaning service which is, as per my experience, not at the level of a such a level of hotel: lack of change of supplies in the room (cotton pads, shoes polish, etc), floors not properly cleaned up.
Annoying smell of fried food in the corridor of 5th floor, any time of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yannick Great Experience!
My girlfriend and I spent only one day and one night there but it was an amazing trip. From the stylish interior designing of the room, to the Wet Deck Party and later on a drink at Eclipse on the 26th floor, and the breakfast in the morning, this experience was an unforgettable one. Everyone was friendly and everything was clean. Big Thanks to Valentina and Claudia for all their help! We will be back :)

I love this place. From the amazing, striking design, to the amazingly nice views, killer rooms, good service, this is a great place to stay. In good weather you have the beach right next door... of course, theres a great pool as well. Staff is super nice. Platinums are treated nicely and room upgrades when able are fabulous. The hotel is a bit land-locked, but doesn't detract. Can't wait to return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Pedro Excellent view still to improve on service
The room was great and with wonderful views
However there was a party at ground floow I was not informed upfront and noise was considerable. I fully understand this can happen but great that this is communicated properly
Also I ordered dinner and I receive a knock at the door at 11 even though I did not request any withdrawal; I guess this should be reviewed within the room service procedures

Rated 4 out of 5 by KELA this hotel makes me happy
i love the light, decoration and atmosphere of W BARCELONA,
I love the pool area both during the day and at night,
the staff is young, friendly, international , they all have good will but many times they give you the wrong information... so you find yourself going around . i also thought there are so many rules and employes have no power or knowledge to adapt to a situation or be flexible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HOwZzaT Another signature W property
This is a great hotel, situated nicely with beautiful views (choose harbour side if you can and NOT port side).
It has the signature contemporary feel that just makes you feel better looking :)
Beds and pillows are wonderful. Rain shower was nice but water needed to get a little hotter.
Room temperature changes were gentle but noticeable after 30 minutes or so.
Nice views in W Eclipse bar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sinta2013 Great facilities and ambience, spectacular view
We enjoyed the room and whole hotel ambience, also great choice for breakfast. We wish to have free wifi everywhere beyond the lobby and shuttle to downtown since location of hotel is a bit far off. Great hospitality of all the hotel staff with 'Whatever and Whenever' slogan you can really differentiate from the rest.... Keep it up and surprise your guest beyond their expectation !

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was a great stay!! We had an beautiful view of barceloneta beach and the cool corner room was just amazing and comfortable. All the staff was very heplfull and friendly although they were very buzy the most of the time. As stawood employees we can recognize the good work that these people do. Keep going W Barcelona team!!!
Thank you for everything!

'W' amplifies very well what Barcelona is - a dynamic creative city with a beach at its doorstep. 'W' in consonance with Barcelona is spectacularly chic, dynamic with a bustling party scene, creative and delicious in its cuisine offerings and with great views and a brilliant setting next to the beach. Go for it and you will realise why Barcelona and 'W' are 'in' and 'happening'!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by j75fr comfy rooms but not worth the money
The location is great, beachfront. Downtown requires taxi. Costs from airport about 30€.
Fitness facility is one of the best I have seen in Europe so far
Pool area pretty small
Rooms are good, views are nice but absolutely not worth 250+€.
Service is very average, far below a 5*
Given the open bathroom double rooms are certainly for couples or very good friends only

Rated 3 out of 5 by Marcel12 The room was too loud
We went last saturday to hotel W in Barcelona and we got room nr. 2404. The disco was on the 26 floor. We could hear the hard music untill 5.00 o'clock. The fact that the room had "ear plugs" means that the hotel knows houpw loudy this room is. Even with ear plugs we couldn't sleep. We were very tired in the morning. This is unacceptable.

Our stay was faultless.
All the staff were extremely helpful. Our room had a breathtaking view.
The DJ at Eclipse was brilliant and the Bliss Spa was one of the most relaxing experiences I've ever had,
Will definitely be returning to W hotel again and can not wait to visit them in other countries.
However the only downfall I would have is the food. It was quite disappointing.

This is a superb hotel located right on the beach facing the Mediterranean. Staff are very knowledgable, warm and accommodating. Rooms, poolside and all common spaces are spotless and chic. This hotel offers a spectacular design experience with a cool, breezy, ambience throughout. Top-notch in every way. The pool-side DJ was a special touch that we adored. We'll be back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by giumira A MUST HAVE, WITH FEW IMPROVEMENTS TO DO
The stay, because of the REM of Guess, was amazing. very beautiful room, 22nd floor, sea view, ultra clean and silent.
Perfect staff, quick elevators, super location. very good breakfast.
Improvements: free wi fi in all rooms, it's unbelievable that a 5* GL do not provide it.
The catering wasn't amazing, Food has to improve.
Overall, a very good stay!

When you step out of your car. The staffs are already waiting for you and help you out your luggage. Check in was fast and got upgraded every time to a cool corner suites which is amazing. I love the beach city view and the ocean view. Breakfast was awesome and staff are very good looking and professional. Thank you.

everything was perfect. our room, the staff, the lounge, the morning breakfast, the bliss spa, the location, ...
it's typical to look for flaws when staying in very expensive hotels. this time I am not able to point out anything that was not above our expectations.
we will come back for sure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fiona22 Great seaviews but poor services
This hotel is beautifully located near the coast. Full seaview in the room. It was so beautiful to watch the sunset and sunrise. However, the quality of services fails to achieve a "wow" factor which the hotel has tried to promise. Instances include:- 1. The yound blond lady at the "whatever" desk does not know what she is doing. When we asked for locations, she told us to ask the taxi driver and was reluctant to give us a map; 2. When we asked for late check out, the front desk staff member was rude; 3. There was a new eve party at the lobby. The noise was so loud that we were unable to sleep til 6 am; 4. We cannot close the toilet door no matter how hard we tried; 5. Water leakage from the shower room is a constant problem. Being a starwood member and having stayed at other 5 star hotels, I must say I am fairly disappointed by this hotel. Staff in general are not friendly. This hotel has failed to deliver the 'wow' factor.
