The W Barcelona hotel is an amazing place. It’s fair to say that l have been dreaming about this hotel ever since l got a chance to visit it on my last trip to Barcelona. The hotel is fantastic, gorgeous, and right on the beach. I can’t think of a thing that l did not like. I find myself wanting to visit Barcelona again, just to stay there. I will show you the reasons why l think it would be an awesome place to spend a few days. I have no affiliation with W Barcelona, it was one of the destinations during my press trip with the Barcelona tourism office.

I am mostly going to let the pictures do the talking. These were taken with the cell phone, so they are not as great as l would have liked. I’m sure you can guess which place in the hotel would be my absolute favorite once you’ve seen them. 🙂

The whole bar area is dimly lit, allowing for intimacy. Makes it quite romantic. The space is quite large, but it doesn’t feel empty even when it’s not crowded. You can tell it was well thought out and designed. In the afternoons, there is a live DJ. Hey, if you ever run out things to say, you could always just listen to the music, or dance. There is also the Eclipse bar which is on the 26th floor that is open in the early evenings and stays open till l think 1 or 2 am for the party people (young ‘uns) . The best part is that it is open to the public as well, and it is free entry. We saw a very mixed crowd in there, from young to older people. Seems like a fun gathering place after work. Very smart on their part.

The Rooms at W Barcelona Hotel:

We got to see the “Extreme Wow” suite. A very expensive suite that goes for €10,000 a night! in high season. I tend to have expensive tastes, but l would never pay that much for a room, honestly. It was gorgeous. It had a total of 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and measured almost 3200 Square feet. That is only 100 square feet less than our old house in Houston! It had a 360 degree view of the city and the sea, floor to ceiling windows, Bang and Olufsen TV’s, even it’s own telescope. It was designed by an architect by the name of Ricardo Bofill. You could fit like 10 people in easily, and you wouldn’t even run into each other. The closet was humongous!. I guess if you’re an oil sheik of something, that amount would be peanuts to you.

They have several levels of rooms, including the regular “Wow” suite, the “Marvelous Suite”, the “Spectacular”, the “Fabulous” and more. The least expensive ones are the “Cozy” rooms, which clocks in at a “mere” 420 square feet. And that is where you would find us :-)!

The hallways are dimly lit, and l think on purpose too. You automatically find yourself whispering so as not to disturb anyone.

W Hotel Barcelona Gym:

There is a gym in the hotel, and it’s open 24 hours. This would be one of Federico’s favorite part of the hotel. Me?..not so much 🙂 . It does have an awesome view though as it faces the beach. How cool is that?

Food at W Barcelona Hotel:

We ate at the Salt Burger restaurant which is on the bottom floor of the W hotel, on the beach side. The burgers were extremely delicious. The portions were American sized, meaning huge. They were not cheap, but l definitely think they were worth it. The drinks were also fantastic, and the staff, super friendly.

Great food at W hotel Barcelona restaurant!

Views from the W Hotel Barcelona:

I have saved the best for last. The views are amazing! The beach stretches all the way from the W, located in Barceloneta, all the way to Barcelona. I could picture myself walking all the way, or better yet, a nice bicycle ride along the beach, breathing the wonderful sea air.

Lovely beach views, reminds you of L.A.

Now, can you understand why l want to stay there? The W Hotel Barcelona is part of the Starwood group so if you are a member and have enough points, you could easily stay here as well as their other locations across the world. I am sure if l saw the other ones, l would want to experience them too :-).

Overall thoughts on the Hotel W Barcelona:

It is an amazing hotel in the best part of Barcelona. The amenities and care received was superior. The prices are not for the faint of heart, but you get what you pay for. This is luxury at its best. Everything is carefully designed and thought out, from the hallways to the suites to the lounge areas and bars. This is highly recommended for special occasions when you want pampering, something to remember for years to come.

What do you think of the W Barcelona hotel? Have you stayed at this or one of their other hotels? Does it sound like a place you would like to stay in? or a you more of a Motel 6, AirBnB etc. kind of person? Most important, would you pay €10,000 a night for a hotel suite even if you had the money?

  1. This is such a beautiful hotel! I loved everything about it, but the views from the gym are really cool: I can already imagine working out and watching the beach and the palm trees…

    The $10,000 suite is beautiful too, but for me, that would be just too much space and I’d get lost in all those rooms. I am sure that even the regular rooms look great there, so I would personally go for one. Of course, if somebody were to gift me a few nights at the $10,000 suite, I wouldn’t complain :))

    Reply
    • I fell in love when l saw it! Every room has a view, and imagine if the “worst” view is a little bit of parking and the docks, l can deal with that. A regular room would be just fine for me too.

  2. Wow. Yeah, I’d pay if I had 10 Trillion dollars! For that kind of price I expect to get rubs from girls in slinky outfits if you know what I mean.
    Thanks for being upfront about non-affiliation with the hotel Kemkem. A pet peeve is someone who raves about a place and then says at the bottom that they got a free night’s stay but that of course all opinions are of their own…yeah right.
    Looks absolutely gorgeous though and although I wouldn’t pay that kind of money I’d for sure come for a drink.

    • Hah hah! I’m surprised you would even have them wearing anything.. :-). I know it does get tiring when you see the disclosure at the bottom, even though if l got free rooms.. I might do that..lol! No, l think l would still put it at the top, and would still be honest. :-). It is gorgeous, but l would still “settle” for a regular room which l am sure at over 400 square feet is still quite nice.

  3. I gotta admit if money was no object I would! I’m a fairly simple person with simple tastes, but I’ve loved staying in fancier hotels in my past (especially if someone else was paying for it). 🙂 I just love the luxury of it all for some reason. One of my favorites was the four seasons in Maui. Sigh…I would have LOVED to have stayed there. I love the name of the spa!

    Reply
    • Hah hah hah! I hear you! If someone else was paying for it, l would be all over it.. :-). When l was single, l thought nothing about staying in high end hotels. I spent every dime l made.. :-). Now, l save it for special treats, and sometimes get lucky with lastminute.com .

  4. I love the W properties! Going through your pictures most of them are very familiar in design. I stayed at the W South Beach with the family in December for a weekend and it was over the top. My room wasn’t $10k a night but it was up there. You should forward your article to them, you never know they might comp you a room.or a spa treatment. 🙂

    Reply
    • Oh wow! How nice it must have been to stay at one of their properties, especially in South Beach! Thanks for the input, and you know what? I just might do that.. like you say, who knows? right? :-). Gotta do some nosing around on their site.. 🙂

  5. This hotel looks amazing – most W Hotels are super luxe. But I would absolutely NEVER spend that kind of money for one night. Ever. Lol! That bathtub is right up my alley though. And the spa…YES! Jave just treated me to a spa day for my bday this past Sunday, and as the lady was giving me my facial I told her that I would literally love to get a facial and massage every single day. It never gets old! Anyway, I’m more of a boutique hotel kinda girl, and I do love AirBnB (have lots of AirBnB stays planned this year), but I definitely wouldn’t pass up the chance to stay here.

    Reply
    • It does look very luxe, doesn’t it? I would like to think that l would spend that kind of money to stay there, but l know the frugal part of me would stop me :-). You know, even if someone else was footing the bill, l would still say no….not unless there were a group of people. What couple needs a 3 bedroom, 3 bath suite?. I like a mix of everything too, but this just calls me… 🙂

  6. Firstly, let me just say that I really like your new blog theme. I haven’t noticed it before so I hope it is actually a new theme as i like the background colour. Very calming! I really like this post kemkem as the photographs are really cool. 🙂

    Secondly, I like Barcelona a lot but I have never stayed at any of the W hotels. Of course, like others, I like the good things in life but I also like to use my common sense thus, luxury in budget-priced destinations and B&B’s or boutiques in the more expensive destinations. If I had an extra €10,000, I would use it to book a TransSiberian train trip to China LOL!

    Reply
    • Ooohhh…Thank you!. I just switched the theme, it’s only a day old, so it is quite new. I’ve been tinkering with a few, but this one just makes the pictures a great size. The bigger the better l say..:-) . I think l would use the €10,000 to get a smaller room, and book a full spa package daily! Massages especially :-). I am totally getting the charm of Barcelona more and more.

      Reply
      • Yep! The pictures look great. Did Federico use his professional photography magic or are they all iPhone photos? I especially like the full view shots. It takes me ages to do that LOL!
        p.s. Barcelona is simply one of the best.
        p.p.s. I actually like Barcelona more than the actual capital – Madrid. Shush! Don’t tell anyone. 🙂

        Reply
        • Oh.. I would so take that as a compliment! They are all iphone pictures by me :-). It means l have been paying attention to his lessons on photography..lol! He didn’t go on this trip with me which is another reason why l want to go back. We were not so impressed with Barca first time around, but l loved it, and l want him to give it a second chance too. It’s a great place! I liked Madrid a lot too. I need to go back there again as well. I have no qualms about going back to places l enjoyed.
