Hotel Review: W Barcelona

The W Barcelona is a landmark in the city, with it’s sail-shaped tower looking over Playa Barceloneta. Earlier this week I had the pleasure of visiting the hotel and I couldn’t wait to share these pictures with you!

For me, the highlight of this hotel is the massive terrace with pool overlooking the beach, or as they call it: Wet Deck. Plush daybeds and waiter service ensure that you have no reason to ever leave.

For those looking for a bit of privacy, there’s a section that can be reserved with a day bed, lounge chairs and hot tub. You can also have a bbq lunch served to you on the dining table, or catch up on your favourite TV show on the flatscreen!

The hotel has two main restaurants, Bravo and Wave. Bravo has a very Mediterranean feel with it’s lush greenery and tapas bar, while Wave is more modern with it’s white and blue decor. Both are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

There’s two very popular bars at the W, and they’re both worth a visit even if you aren’t staying at the hotel. Eclipse is located on the 26th floor and has panoramic views of the skyline and water. Salt is located on the beach, and it’s one of my favourite places in Barcelona to enjoy a drink with a view!

The hotel is equipped with a full gym and a spa. The “Bliss Spa” uses Bliss products from NYC, and the cheerful decor is a refreshing change from the overdone “stuffy” decor you see in most hotel spas. The staff here were equally cheerful, making the entire spa feel very inviting.

The guest rooms have fun names, like the “Wonderful Room” and “Spectacular Suite”. When booking a room here it pays to upgrade to one with a view! The W Hotel is perfectly positioned to give you an unobstructed view of the Mediterranean Sea.
