Very trendy hotel with absolutely stunning views

Pros: The views - it was the only reason we chose this hotel and it didn't disappoint. Stunning.
Cons: Breakfast was confusing, so much so we decided to leave to get breakfast in town. Check in took a long time. You need to pay to enter the spa!
The hotel has stunning views of Barcelona. I was on the 19th floor in a 'Fabulous' room, and the view never ceased to amaze. The room was spotlessly clean and amazingly comfy, and surprisingly for a hotel known for its party atmosphere, it was dead silent at night in our room. The hotel was also kind enough to leave us a birthday cake as in previous email communication I mentioned we were staying for my girlfriends birthday, which was a really nice touch. The hotel is a fairly long walk from the town center which is lovely on a warm day, but less so when it's cold. Taxi's were super cheap however (6-8 euros each way) are there is a taxi rank outside the hotel. Good restaurant but won't be to everyone's taste, the Eclipse bar is very cool and exclusive to hotel guests.

From arrival to sad departure we had an amazing time in Barcelona taken to another level by the W. The team are fantastic and ensured every element of our stay was catered from advice on where to eat, what to see, to a surprise cake to celebrate my Daughters Birthday. Big thanks to the team, highly recommend Barcelona and a must to stay at the W

Pros: Customer service and views.
Cons: Onsite night clubs and Sunday afternoon dj sets adjacent reception.
Location: Great location for beach access.
The hotel staff are excellent and go out of their way to help, I received a free room upgrade as we were there celebrating a special occasion. Only negative comment would be the on site night club which attracts a lot of extra activity around the hotel entrance and lobby. Not sure the hotel overall benefits from this facility.

A couple of issues

Posted Nov 1, 2016
Location: The location is great.
The concierge staff and bellmen gave misleading information from time to time. They charged for hot tub use which seemed cheap in a high end hotel.
