Great hotel on a fantastic beach

Posted 30-Sep-2014
Pros: Nice comfortable room. Great beachside and pool areas. V polite staff.
Cons: Careful on drink prices - a little toppy
Location: Location is fantastic - barcelona beach is beautiful and you are right on it with loads to do
First trip to the W Barcelona and we were not disappointed. We didn't get the room we booked but the hotel immediately offered us complimentary breakfast for the two days. A fair compromise we thought. Room was very comfortable with a great view. If you want a great hotel with a slightly different location to city centre ( ie on a big beautiful beach ) then this is the one for you. Concierge was very helpful with some great restaurant recommendations ( try Born Llamber - awesome ). Amenities very good and if the hotel is trying to be slightly cool and targeting the younger generation, then I would say it does this pretty well. Drinks slightly pricey but then I guess that is par for the course for a high end hotel. Would I go again - in a heartbeat !

The W Hotel

Posted 29-Sep-2014
Excellent staff and room impressive. Nightclub ok, best views of city reserved for VIP, all very tedious. No free wifi in room, 19 euros for 24hrs, errr I don't think so in 2014. One bottle of free water in room, the others 4.50 euros, crazy! Great overall experience, just be careful of extra charges.

Nice modern hotel by the beach

Posted 24-Sep-2014
Pros: The pool bar is very cool and spacious, lots of seating area.
Cons: At the restaurants on 1st floor, staff brought us some bread and few pieces of potato chips & olive oil that are chargeable without asking.
Location: Can walk, cycle, roller blade along the beach to restaurants and museum of Picasso etc... a little bit far from downtown but it's a lot more peaceful.
The hotel is very modern and hip. Staff is a bit sleepy, checked in at 12pm were told to wait for call when room is ready, very helpful staff! By 3pm still haven't received phone call and went to counter and collected the room keys. Around 15-20 mins later, receive the call to inform me about the room is ready! Not the most efficient I suppose.

Beautiful View- Fantastic Hotel

Posted 22-Sep-2014
My Birthday weekend at W Barcelona was brilliant start to finish. The check in was a bit slow and busy, however they did let me check in early, which was very kind of them. They also gave me a few complimentary drinks and snacks as it was my birthday. The attendants Maxwell and Andy were particularly great. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Barcelona. Hopefully, I can go back soon.

Fantastic Honeymoon

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Just returned from our fantastic honeymoon at W Barcelona. From the moment we checked in, the service was amazing. Staff are very attentive and personable. Concierge did everything they could for us including recommending some lovely restaurants and bars. We stayed in a Cool Corner Suite on the 11th floor, which had views of the sea and the Barcelona port. Will definitely be going back one day.

Fantastic hotel with stunning views!

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Pros: It's location and the 'fabulous' room.
Cons: Tea and coffee making facilities in the room.
Location: The area of 'Born' (Gothic area) is well worth a visit, gorgeous little streets with tapas bars and cafés at every turn.
W hotel, Barcelona is a haven of luxury located on the beach. With stunning views across the bay this hotel has a tranquil feel, but is still close enough to discover the amazing city of Barcelona. Access to the Barceloneta metro stop (20 min walk along the seafront) means you can get around easily. Hotel staff are very professional and friendly. The hotel surroundings are stylish and very well presented. Food and drink isn't cheap but not out of place in a 5* hotel. The 'Eclipse' club was very pretentious with an odd system whereby only VIPs were able to sit and admire the view and drinks are very expensive. However, well worth a visit to catch a glimpse of the amazing views and the music in the chill out bar was great! Rooms are beautiful (we had a fabulous room) and the views were amazing. The only negative was not having any tea or coffee in the room. Plenty of alcohol in the mini bar, but comes at a price. We loved this hotel and would definitely go back. Not cheap but well worth splashing out for a special occasion (our joint 40th bday)!

Trendy hotel with fantastic views

Posted 15-Sep-2014
Pros: Views are fantastic. Rooms and hotel are trendy. Comfy beds. Beach bar.
Location: Long walk to major areas and metro but plenty of taxis on hand.
Stayed for 5 nights in a Fabulous room on the 19th floor. We'd stayed in this room type before in 2011 and, as ever, this room did not disappoint in terms of the amasing view of Barcelona and San Sebastia beach. In 2011, we were a bit disappointed with the quality of service, and given some of the recent reviews here, we were worried we would see this again. But we didn't! The service was excellent this time - all staff were friendly, polite and always on hand to serve (including the beach area) - vast improvement on 2011. Well done W! We knew what to expect with the party atmosphere on Sundays so this year we went prepared for a party at the excellent Sunday pool party with a fantastic DJ. I'm sure this would annoy some guests who weren't prepared but if you go ready for it, you will love it and the noise finishes by 1 am anyway. Really enjoyed it. Very minor complaint was that our room was not cleaned on the first full day - we had to ring to ask for this at 5 pm, left the room for an hour and came back and it still wasn't done so had to call again and it was finally done at 6.30 pm (while we were getting ready to go out for the evening so not ideal). After that, we asked for the room to always be cleaned between 10 am and 2 pm and it was done promptly every day then. I would recommend telling them when you want the room cleaned if this is something that you need. Also, some nice new additions to make the guests feel welcome - free wifi (big plus), free coffee in the am.
