It was amazing to see Barcelona Spain. The history and Cathedrals were amazing! Went to the soccer arena as well,,, markets and medieval festivals were very nice. The Columbus monument was fantastic on the waterfront. We stayed on a camp ground and drove to each attraction. Worth going to see this beautiful country and its history. P. Schwarz Ontario Canada.

I need to travel around the world for a number of professional responsibilities. As well I love to travel for vacation. This hotel is one of my very favourite places to stay anywhere. The view is extraordinary, the staff is amazing, the services are wonderful. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.

Lovely hotel it is. This is the best W hotel I have ever stayed so far. Location: Properly located on the beach with beautiful view. Slightly away from Barcelona city center but you can easily use bus or metro to get in the center. Plenty of marts and restaurant in walking distance.

We have always wanted to stay at this iconic Barcelona landmark hotel ever since our first trip to the city, so when we found a special online November deal for 2 nights staying B&B in a 'Fabulous' room including flights we didn't hesitate. It more than lived up to expectations. Our room was on the 18th floor with the bed... More

I've stayed in this hotel twice and on both occasions had wonderful experiences. You can think of it as a resort hotel in Barcelona because it is on the sea and especially on weekends has a resort holiday spirit about it. On both visits we were upgraded to rooms with absolutely gorgeous views of the sea and the city. My... More

I have traveled millions of miles around the world for business and travel, and have stayed at countless hotels. The W Barcelona is my favorite hotel in the world! Great location, facility, service, room views, hotel architecture, surrounding venue and culture, etc. All of the staff have a great attitude and you will have an amazing experience.

Very nice and cool designed hotel. Almost all rooms has great view. The downside is that the staff can sometimes be a bit arrogant - especially the front desk and managers. Was promised to have my SPG points added but nothing happened.

Staying in Barceloneta

Neighbourhood Profile
Barceloneta
Originally a fisherman’s quarter, this quaint area can’t escape its small village feel: laundry hanging over the narrow streets, old ladies clamoring at each other from their balconies and elder gentlemen playing games on short wooden benches gossiping the day away, Barceloneta could double as a film set. Artists line the boardwalk displaying their magnificently detailed sand structures making this the most visited beach in the city (the shirtless men working out might help too). You’ll know by the delicious aroma that you're in the right place to try some of the best and most authentic seafood including paella, Spain’s national dish.
