The second W Hotel established in Europe is the one of Barcelona: W Barcelona opened its doors in October 2009 and one can say that it has already reached the reputation of its famous predecessors of the Starwood Group… Called the Sail, this building designed by the Master Ricardo Bofill is ideally located on the beach, on the entry of the port, in the district of Barceloneta.

Located on the beachfront in the Barceloneta area of Barcelona, W Hotel is, since its opening, the new icon of the city. 
Could you imagine a kind a sail, set on the sea at the entrance to the Port of Barcelona? 
A great design from catalan architect Ricardo Bofill known for other projects in Barcelona like the Diagonal Mar renovation, the Olympic Village apartments or more lately the magistral Terminal 1 at Barcelona airport. 
W Barcelona, popularly known as the Hotel Vela (Sail Hotel) is part of the Starwood hotels group, that is to say that we are here talking about a luxury and highend hotel.

 The favourite hotel of the F1 pilots..

With 473 guest rooms, including 67 suites, with endless sea and city views "W" is the favourite hotel of the F1 pilots during the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Spain.
If you like F1 your better book there during the 3 days show.. 
Rated 8.6 by Booking, 4.4/5 by Google "W" is not only the favourite hotel of F1 pilots by also one of our recommended hotels by the sea in Barcelona.

People enjoy luxuriously comfortable slip into this urban oasis by the beach and its unobstructed views of the Mediterranean Sea.
You are in the Barceloneta district, that is to say at walking distance of the historic city center, points of interest, shops and best restaurants. 

You went to stay around? 
Enjoy 3 hotel restaurants: Bravo24 by Michelin-star chef Carles Abellán, Wave or Salt restaurants. 
And 3 hotel bars : Eclipse, W lounge and Wet Bar for a fresh tropical cocktail by the pool.

We recommend also Pez Vela restaurant by Tragaluz group.. Easy to find it's just on the beach at the entrance of W. 
Find more restaurants in the Barceloneta on our Where to eat guide.
