    Must do W Barcelona !!

    Superlative experience at W Barcelona. The wow room had all the required facilities just at a hands reach click and the view was killer! The breakfast spread was too good and their service is attentive. The variety of restaurant and the access to the walk by the beach makes it so tempting. The pool, the spa and the rooftop club were top notch . We did stay 2 days at la ramblas too but that was purely for shopping purpose. But W Barcelona was worth every bit for the actual feel.of luxury.

    W stand for WORST hotel in Barcelona

    The W stands for WORST hotel I’ve ever been to. Make sure you use a card you can report and investigate the scam charges. ASK FOR RECIEPTS. We had to leave the keys on the front desk because none of the employees wanted to help me. They will just stare at you in hate silence like you do not belong in here. They helped people in line behind me like I was invisible. I was so happy to leave this hotel but I came home to multiple scam charges. 2 thousand US got pulled out of my account with no consent or signature so beware of the charges to your account. This hotel ruined my vacation & the only thing they can do is pass my comments along to housekeeping ??? It’s not the housekeepers fault the mirrors have mold seamed in them. You have to replace the mirrors. This is the absolute worst hotel who hire employees that act like they own the hotel. We couldn’t stand being here anymore so we went to the Olivia Balmes in Barcelona and enjoyed the rest of our stay. BEWARE OF THE W they are trash.

    Location: not walking distance to Main attractions. But nice to be by the beach. Staff: overall not helpful and a “no” attitude. Was there for a work event and there was lots of issues such as damp In the main room (bad smell), mixed messages from the staff, no one owning up to anything or being able to help there and then. Would not recommend for work events. Bedroom: had a suite so had great views. Communal areas: Pool was closed, main bar was tired. Staff in the top floor bar was rude.

    Beware of the Salon

    Our stay at the W Barcelona was overall fine - the location is incredible and the pools are nice (as long as you understand that it is a party destination). Dependent on the location of the room, it can get noisy. The upper floors can hear noise from Noxe while the rooms off the lobby can hear party dwellers waiting to get upstairs to Noxe. This stay we were able to move interior and finally got a great sleep (beds are cozy). The views are second to none on all sides of the hotel. The salon is untrustworthy and I caution anyone to do business there. I got two simple blow dries / the first was 100 and the second was 160! Mind you I have medium length, medium body hair and the blow dry took a total of 25 minutes. They aren’t transparent before the blow dry and knowingly overcharge you. I made the mistake but save the money and take a taxi into town for a better quality experience at a salon that has integrity.
