My husband and I went to Barcelona to watch the Barca play and decide to splurge by staying at the W. WOW! It was such an amazing experience. We stayed in the 21st floor and didn't close our blinds at all during our stay. The view was magnificent. The concierge recommendations were excellent. We had the best Gin and Tonics...

Location and design both excellent, but let down by poorly-trained staff and very sloppy service standards. On check-in, nobody explained the need to operate the lift by using the room-card, or how the various controls work in the room itself (ok, it isn't beyond the wit of man to work it out, but at the end of a long journey,...

An amazing hotel. Stayed here for work / holiday. My room was on the 15th floor and overlooked the beachfront and ocean - the hotel called it a "FABULOUS" room and 40sqf.

This property was one of the most beautiful, magical hotels I have been to. They upgraded me to a beautiful Suite overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, and the outdoor pool area is incredible. The location is outstanding being next to the beach, and you can walk to Old Barcelona and La Ramblas no problem!!Spain is now my favourite destination!!!

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.
