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 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 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chappaquamom Loved our stay
The hotel could not have been nicer. Let us use pool and beach even though our room not ready and we arrived 9 am from cruise ship. fun vibe in hotel. room fabulous. Only complaint is hotel is far to get to, so cabs more expensive from here when trying to go to other parts of city. But you have the beach here so it is a trade-off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rich2809 One of the nearly greats
I love this hotel. Rooms and suites are spacious and comfortable. The staff always friendly and some of the best restaurants and bars in any hotel.
I had room service for lunch, roast chicken, very delicious
It is everything the W brand encapsulates, stylish and sophisticated.
Only slight niggles
No coffee in room
Insanely complicated lighting, TV system

Rated 5 out of 5 Great stay, one of my favorite hotels!
The W Barcelona is beautiful with a wealth of amenities. The pool area is a great place to relax, there are a variety of food options, and it is situated right on the beach. We were upgraded to a corner suite and had breathtaking views of the harbor and the Mediterranean. The staff was incredibly friendly and willing to offer anything we needed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vienna Room not clean
I stayed with my wife for our anniversary one week in the hotel. The room we had was not cleaned very well and the non-smoking room had a burned hole from a cigarette on the night-table.
The roses which I orderd with the reservation were not delivered at our anniversary.
I was surprised that the service at wet deck was so poor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ElTiberon Great Resort Hotel with limitations
This new W resort hotel drives really your WOW-effect! The only bad thing is, when travelling during the summer (main season): you will not get a table at the main restaurants, even you tried to book 24h in advance. So why staying in a hotel where you cannot dine? Similar if you want to get a place at the beach or at the pool - all full!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Khaled83 Romantic location
Had a warm welcome from the hotel staff, I was upgraded to the cool corner suite which had a fabulous view ( breathtaking views of sunrise/sunset along the sea). The design of the hotel and rooms where very artistic.The location was romantic where I took long walks with my wife on the beach.
Highly recommended for romantic getaways.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JuliaAnn A Dream Vacation
A dream location for an anniversary trip, a family with young children or parents with older teenagers.
This is a place where you can relax with the beach and sea breezes or have an busy trip with water sports, sightseeing and a very active nightlife.
We spent our time sightseeing and at the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by zo1947 W was wonderful
Had a great visit to Barcelona. The hotel was great. The staff was very responsive and helpful. The only downside was the distance from most attractions. The hotel is on the beach, which is not a big factor in the winter. The view from the room was very nice. We used room service frequently, it was always correct and good quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by awesome Hotel with breathtaking view of Mediterranean
This hotel offers the breathtaking view of the sea.
The walk along the beach offers is a good experience and there are many good restaurants within the walking distance.
The hotel staffs have been very friendly from the moment we checked in.
This is definitely one hotel that we'll be back to stay if we come to Barcelona again.

Also to Claudia and Oto from the Wave for the special attention. Were very warm and made us feel at home!
I will definately recommend your hotel to others and look forward to returning!

My sister and I were not planning on staying so far out of the city, but this W was definitely worth it! It was a nice walk into the city center and you get the benefit of being right on the beach! The room was amazing and comfortable- we didn't want to get out of bed. We would for sure stay here again- the service was top notch

Rated 5 out of 5 by supatight80 Excellent Platinum Recognition!
Stayed here for 4 nights with my boyfriend. Excellent Platinum Recognition! They upgraded us to their cool corner suite with fantastic views of the ocean! Simply loved the place and everyone was very helpful and friendly. Definitely NOT a 'stuck up' W hotel property.
Eclipse Bar was fun too. Had a blast there everynight :)

Just visited the W in Barca and had a fantastic stay. Great room with a fantastic view of the city, beach and sea. Food at breakfast was good and the Bravo tapas fantastic. Usual great service from the www team and really enjoyed the atmosphere in the cocktail bar on the top floor. Now cheap but well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovekush Great if you want American Hotel in Spain
I came to Barcelona for a business/personal trip with several colleagues. As the trip coordinator, I chose to offer a variety of hotels to the group and the majority chose the W due to familiarity and location on the beach. Since none of us had ever been to Barcelona, it sounded like a winner. The hotel is a total W experience and the staff was awesome AND Bi-Lingual which really helped us. The location is also great if you want to be on the beach. The only challenge we had was to get to the city center you had to take a cab or take a long walk (30-60 minutes). The city of Barcelona is best in the city...not on the beach in my opinion. The beach was great, no criticism there, it's just the best part of Barcelona is the city...not the beach. If you want an authentic experience without North American influence, I'd highly recommend staying at a local hotel. If you want to be on the beach, then this is definitely the best location and hotel in Barcelona for that purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 Excellent stay at W-Barcelona
We had a wonderful time at W Barcelona. We definitely will come back soon, since we had a great stay!
W-Insider team took care of any single detail and we are very happy with them.
Everything was perfect: room accommodation, food, services, gym and the very high professional massages and beauty treatments

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.

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.
