Expert reviews

CNN review:

“A beacon on the Barcelona beachfront, the W edifice gazes out into the Mediterranean. From the outside it’s eye-catching; inside it’s roomy, light and does a slick job catering to the guest prepared to spend extra on expansive sea views.”

Fodors review:

“Architect Ricardo Bofill’s W is a stunner, inside and out, from the six-story atrium lobby with its black ceramic tile floors, suspended basket chairs and glitter walls to the adjacent bar-lounge with direct access to the ‘Attitudes’ lounge deck, chill-out divans and pool.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Barcelona.

Telegraph review:

“You’ll need a streak of fabulousness to feel at home in the W – its poolside areas, particularly, can look like catalogue photo shoots, and entrance to the Eclipse bar is only for the glam. In the rooms the all-glass fronts afford spectacular views of the sea, the city or – if you’re lucky, or pay a little more – both.”
