I absolutely love the W chain and Barcelona was no different. My husband booked the W for a surprise long weekend away. The room was awesome...roomy, with a gigantic bed facing out over the water. The staff are lovely...the reception staff found out it was birthday and sent a small gift, the bar staff took the time with my husband...

I loved the hotel The view from our room was fantastic. The service was good and location within walking distance to many things. (Although it is a bit of a walk to the gothic area it is a nice walk with lots to see in the way).

We were not staying at the hotel but went in for a couple of cocktails after a recommendation. The Cocktails were amazing, the hotel staff were attentive and the scene is great. However, take a credit card, it is extremely expensive. Really enjoyed the swinging chairs too!

An “interesting” hotel built on reclaimed land on the beachfront of the Barceloneta area of Barcelona. Building style is very “Dubai” of 5 years ago. The trouble is the location may be on the beach but unless you take a cab you are 20 to 30 minutes walk from the city – there are loads of restaurants, sand and super-yachts...

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.
