Stunnig view of the sea, the beach and the city..

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.

Everything was perfect at the W Barcelona! From the incredible hotel itself to the superior level of service, every staff member made us feel special. Adrian, the banquet manager, went above and beyond, preparing a personalized surprise and showing us around. Jorge (the concierge) was also incredibly helpful, as was Pratik. To top it off, the gentleman who checked us in gave us an upgrade and was incredibly sweet. We were so impressed with our experience, we’ll definitely be back!

Ask for a room on the higher floors for a great view. This accommodation has an incredible nightclub with great music and atmosphere. While breakfast selection may be limited for vegetarians, the overall stay was great. The hotel's location means there is a great promenade nearby, but beware of pickpockets just outside. That view from the room is unbeatable!

I tried going out here with my mates, and after a few hours of being up in the club on the 26th floor we came back down for a smoke (which the staff upstairs said was okay and we could come back upstairs no problem). We are all dressed appropriately and following all house rules by the way. However, after said smoke, the rude bounce downstairs wouldn’t let us back up despite what the staff upstairs told us AND his colleague downstairs saying we could. But as soon as he told his colleague no she took his side and called us the b word (in Spanish think we didn’t understand). This is beyond unprofessional and absolutely disgusting behavior and I strongly recommend staying away from this venue if you want an enjoyable night out. Absolutely disgusting treatment and I hope they replace the staff and train them better because otherwise this would not be an ideal place when visiting Barcelona. I’m highly disappointed.

Gorgeous views but appalling service. Was patronised by the manager when we visited reception multiple times to ask for the beds for our grandchildren we had requested when making our booking. They weren't ready until 11pm, destroying the first night of our holiday. To make matters worse, the duty manager refused to speak to us when we departed. Definitely won't be back here.

My stay at the W Barcelona was complete with an unforgettable night at the Wet Deck. At first, I had a few hiccups in getting on the guest list, but a lovely man called Renee helped me out a great deal. He went beyond what was expected of him and provided amazing service. His kindness resulted in the most amazing night of our Barcelona trip. I am ever so grateful to Renee for such remarkable hospitality.
