I'm a bit surprised by the poor reviews of this hotel as I always thought my standards were pretty high. I found the hotel to be clean, well-maintained and well-run. I won't touch on hotel design because, while not to my taste, there is no denying that it is very nicely done and well within the expected branding of a...

Stayed here and enjoyed a very nice room/suite overlooking the sea (incl. baththub with sea view). However, the room had (as other parts of the hotel) shown signs of ageing (e.g. marks on the wall, parts of the bathroom installements chipped off, etc.). Nevertheless, the hotel itself is quite impressive, the rooms offer a nice view, the pool area allows...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. It was a very good experience and staffs are friendly. The room is not only spacious but also clean. You can drink free wine from 8pm to 9pm. And DIY free laundry too. But breakfast is not too good though.

Nice Hotel with good clean rooms! But... extremely noisy and it's impossible to rest!

Total lack of respect for customers that need to rest and face in the following...

I have to say the rooms at the w hotels need maintenance and renovations. The furniture looks old and dirty. Check-in took a lot of time the staff at reception doesn't help need to be more trained to deal with tourists. The telephone was not working properly at the room. Everything was below expectations honestly at this time of the...

Let me start what this hotel is sure not : a place for kids and families. It is a vibrant hotspot of party, music and nightlife with one of the best clubs upstairs and a very partying crowd hanging around.

The hotel is nice and modern but a bit removed from the Rambla and most fine dining. The roof top bar is hip and inviting. The rooms are typical for a new W hotel - technologically advanced with lots of buttons and automated functions.

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.
