All time favorite mixed city/beach hotel. Lovely pool. Big variety of restaurants/bars within 5 minutes (!) walking. Club on top floor is average. But at the pool is pretty cool. Views are possibly the best in town.

W's tend to annoy me with their hectic vibe and unwarranted attitude (chains are not cool, period). But have to say that the W BCN won me over. Magnificent room both in layout and with an amazing view of the ocean, beach and city (which most rooms should have given the architecture). Also appreciated that both bed and desk area...

It's a superb hotel but my friends and I had a real problem with the surly attitude of the bar staff when we spent 3 days there. We've all been in shops and bars before when you're given the 'pretty woman buying clothes in Beverly Hills moment' i.e. bar staff thinking they can ignore you or that their time is...

Clean comfortable hotel with helpful staff and good food including gluten free options which we needed. Dark walls in the corridors and low lighting on reception are a bit at odds with the bright beach setting but it is the nightclub image that they are going for and the huge amount of alcohol in the room suggests they are focused...

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.
