This hotel was probably the worst experience I have ever had in any Starwood hotel round the globe. The only positive aspect is the design of the building, but the moment you step into the hotel you'll be WOOOOOWED in a negative way wherever you go. Whenever I went into the lobby it was crowded with drunk Russians who behaved...

What a place. Visited here after much research. Super-stunning. Our room overlooked the sea. Infact as you gazed out of the window whilst lying on the bed, it made it look like the hotel was in the middle of the ocean. So much to do here. An awe-inspiring hotel. Trendy places to eat and drink.

Went looking for a cocktail overlooking the city ....... The cocktail bar almost looks like someone has owners what to do with the attic - added some purple and green lights, grabbed the best looking waiters and waitresses from the hotel and - voila - a cocktail bar. Noises, tables that needed replaced and no tables next to the windows....

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.
