Spectacular so long as the room is right

Posted 14-Apr-2015
The hotel is spectacular - great location on the beach at Barceloneta and close to museums, marina and aquarium. It took time to warm to it though, because the room we were given -having booked a 'wonderful' room - presented us with a very unwonderful view. Construction site directly outside and a container dock. I can get all that at home with the added bonus of understanding the graffiti. We complained and were moved from the 3rd floor to the 18th. The second room wasn't as good - but still very comfortable - but the location was much better so we were happy. Or we were till the second night when our key card timed out so at 1130pm after a long day it was back down from the 18th floor to get it sorted. This was done but the problem for a hotel promising a 'wow' experience is that they absolutely have to get the small details right. By the time we checked out after 4 days I'd been completely won over and this was due to the friendliness and good humour of the staff especially those in the bar, the room and the view, the all-round cleanliness, the many design features, and the location.

Hotel am Strand aber zu weit weg vom Zentrum

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: Panoramafenster mit Blick auf das Meer und Terrasse
Cons: Familien kein Zimmer in den ersten 6 Stockwerken anbieten.
Location: Befindet sich am Strand aber sehr weit weg von den Lokalen. Muss man Bus oder Taxi nehmen
Um in die Innenstadt zu gelangen muss man den Bus nehmen und das dauert ungefähr 15 Minuten. Gegenüber steht eine Bauruine. In den ersten 6 Stockwerke hört man alles, vor allem die laute Musik aus der Bar oder die Gespräche von der Lobby. Also sehr hellhörig.

Trendy, hip, modern. The hotel is not bad either.

Posted 13-Apr-2015
Pros: I loved the fact that my significant other and myself looked so hip and beautiful in this place.
Cons: Perhaps they could add more mirrors so trendy,modern people could have a better view of their hip tattoos.
Location: Hotel is right on a nice beach, where you can stroll along and be admired. Barcelona has plenty of hip bars; that's why it's called Barcelona. Lol.
A perfect hotel for trendy, beautiful people with money to blow. No need to complain about lack of microwave or coffee-maker in the room; what is room service for, after all? Wonderful room with big mirror near the bed so you can watch yourselves sleep. Very trendy, hip frosty-glass enclosure for the toilet and shower which are right in the room with you. Who needs privacy when one is so hip and beautiful? The bars are lively and noisy, with plenty of trendy, modern tattoos in evidence everywhere. A place to see, and be seen, as the hotel literature describes.

Fantastic !

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: See above
Cons: Nothing
Location: Due to limited mobility of one of partner used taxis to get to main tourist areas. Would have otherwise been a pleasant stroll of about 20 mins.
Astounded by free room upgrade on arrival to 23rd floor! Glorious views and room, wonderful comfy beds. I had been concerned that it may all be a bit posh for us with 2 teenagers and a granny but the staff were so friendly and helpful, we didn't feel at all awkward. Would love to go back after a lot of saving up !

Tolles junges Hotel am Strand von Barcelona

Posted 12-Apr-2015
Pros: Der Service und das Essen und das Zimmer..
Cons: Ja, die umständliche Anwahl der Fernsehprogramme... Das Hoteldirectory könnte übersichtlicher sein...
Location: Am Port Vell. Also Strand, Bars, Sport....
Das W Hotel ist ein sehr schönes Hotel am Strand von Barcelona. Die Ausstattung ist sehr gut und geschmackvoll. Der Service im Hotel insgesamt ist vorbildlich, freundlich und es geht alles auch auf Englisch. Überhaupt ist sehr viel Personal im Einsatz, was für einen reibungslosen Ablauf sorgt. Einziger Nachteil ist die Entfernung zur nächsten Metrostation mit 15 Min. Fußmarsch.

Great views of the coast

Posted 09-Apr-2015
Nice welcome, room very trendy but not very practical. Lovely beach outside, great for early morning and evening walks. Bit of a trek to the metro for sightseeing, but a pretty one. Felt the hotel was aimed at 20-30 year old, cocktail bar, nightclub, multiple djs, etc.

Hotel der Oberklasse

Posted 08-Apr-2015
Pros: Die Lage ( einmalig ) die Aussicht vom Zimmer, die Ausstattung des Zimmers, das Hotel ist sehr schön, Das hilfsbereite und freundliche Personal.
Location: Das Hotel befindet sich direkt am Strand, Alle Unternehmungen könne direkt mit dem Bus gestartet werden, der ca. 3 Gehminuten vom Haus entfernt hält.
Wir waren über die Osterfeiertage dort, haben das Zimmer 1004 in der 10. Etage bewohnt. Hier hat man einen herrlichen Ausblick auf den Strand und auf Barcelona. Der Service war sehr gut, das Personal freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es gab im Prinzip nicht zu bemängeln. Die Zimmer waren sauber. Mit dem Bus Nr. 64 kommt man direkt zur Via Rambla, oder zur nächsten Metro Station Barceloneta. Wir kommen gerne wieder und können diese Hotel auch bestes Empfehlen. Zum Essen geht man am Besten in eines der nahe gelegenen Restaurants ( preisgünstiger und größere Auswahl als im Hotel ).

Amazing view

Posted 08-Apr-2015
The view from our 'wonderful room' was breath taking. The hotel is a bit out of the way and not walking distance but for us the view was just well worth it. The taxi to and from main attractions was around £7-8 euro but with 2 kids (4 & 6) it was the most convenient way of travel. The room was huge we had two twin double beds was very comfy and kids ended up sleeping on the window seats...got in room service two adult continental breakfast 19 euro each and was more than enough. Got a bit loud at night very young clubby hip scene but nothing too brash. The beach wasn't as busy, was just right but maybe not appropriate for younger kids, can imagine it can get v busy in summer. City was amazing loved mont juic amazing view of city close to out hotel. All in all a lovely 2 day break.

Brilliantly Bizarre

Posted 05-Apr-2015
Pros: The staff were warm and helpful, and seemed to enjoy their job.
Location: There are restaurants near by as well as the marina and it is a 10 min walk into the centre of Barcelona.
Possibly the nicest most bizarre hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were well informed and thorough. The facilities were excellent, it really is worth a visit. The rooms are finished with a touch of class. There are charges for odd things but thats how it is. I can not explain how wonderfully odd the hotel we loved it. Just excellent.
