TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 days ago

The W Hotel in Barcelona is situated directly by the see and harbour with fantastic views over both. My room was on the 16th floor and was quite spacious with the bed facing the big windows with fantastic views. The bathroom was separated from the room though glass walls and the sink was in the actual bedroom which was quite unusual but one gets used to it. The bed was very comfortable and I slept very well. The breakfast buffet offered a wide selection of warm and cold foods and I enjoyed it very much. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I'll be back!

So, I stayed in your hotel last March and it was anything but 5 star- worthy.... I am still mad about it. In all fairness, me and my companion both work in gastronomy and work / have worked for the Stawood and Marriott chain in 5 Star superior hotels in Germany. I do not expect special treatment, however given what 5 Star service means in my country and in your hotel- worlds apart! Before arriving we had received written confirmation for an early check in. Arriving shortly after 1 pm we were told that our room was not ready yet. Upon asking whether we could store our luggage, we gave that to the staff and each received a voucher to redeem at the bar on the ground floor. We left our phone number with the reception clerk, who assured us, to be called as soon as the room was available. We did redeem the vouchers, had something to eat and waited and waited and waited. Once the clock passed 3pm I went to the check-in desk again to inquire as to the possibility to check in now, since 3pm is the official check-in time. First surprise, the room was indeed ready and had been for quite a while apparently. The staff just failed to inform us. Unfortunately, we had to pick up our luggage and rolled up to our room ( 5Star superior service: when waiting for the room, the luggage will be brought up to it!) But ok, no big hassle, as all luggage these days practically rolls up itself..... Upon entering the room we sat down and then did a checking round, as most guest do. We only had one bathrobe in a room for 2. The bed wasn't properly made, meaning on one side the bed sheet was tucked in so deep, that on the other side there was nothing left to be tugged in. I could see the matress and the bed framing. Then I took away the decorative Dalí pillow, only to discover that it had a dirty spot on its backside....probably the reason it was propped up that way and not with the dirty side up, which states your hotel logo.... Also both sleeping pillows on the left side of the bed were dirty. So we called the reception /concierge and were assured somebody was going to come up and fix all stated problems. And they did, all, one by one. Every couple of five to ten minutes someone knocked at the door, entered, taking something out or bringing something up and then slamming the door on their way out. After the fifth time of slamming I had had enough. My friend and I intended to head out and explore the city despite the weather, so I freshened up, went to the bathroom only to notice that there was no toilet brush. By now it was past 5pm!! Hours had gone to waste. Downstairs we asked whether we could get a toilet brush for the room and were told, that that was not possible, because there were none to be had, since housekeeping cleans the rooms daily. Are you kidding me?? Even if you share a room with your spouse, whom you have seen ill and sick....people go to the bathroom and sometimes the toilet simply dirties up and you want to tell me , there is no toilet brush. (There are also no toilet brushes in the toilet stalls in all the public areas!!) After returning later that night , wanting to warm up , I phoned the room service to asked for a teacup and 2 bags of green tea. I was told , that things ought to be brought up very soon and sure enough things were brought up quickly. However, I was brought a couple of tea bags of black tea, which was already in the room, with the simple commentary of ' Green tea isn't complimentary'. Now that was the last straw! Do not tell me when I'm placing an order that things will be brought up only to not bring what was ordered , let alone to tell me that 2 tea bags of green tea aren'´t complimentary. You claim to be a 5 star superior hotel!! Had I ordered a whole package I would have understood , but please. Next up, when something is not complimentary inform me, while I am placing my order or call back with this information. I would have, at this point, even paid for 2 tea bags of green tea. To relieve my stress I headed to the gym only to head to the spa, to let someone know that it was raining into the gym, since apparently the window- side was leaking..... By that time I was not even surprised anymore.. Breakfast the next day was alright, though the following two days the labels for juices always noted grapefruit juice , even though none was available on both days after the first. If it's not there, why put up the sign for it?? Also the staff tends to be a little too quick in clearing tables... my friend and I had dishes taken away before eating them, same with a cappuccino. Also for the kitchen staff, how come, when I order an omlette 3 days in a row it is significantly smaller on one day than the other???I'm talking about half the size here. And as for the rooftop bar. I had made a reservation via email months ahead and checked a week before our arrival. I also send a mail wanting to postpone the reservation to an hour later that same day that was reserved but I never got a response back in 2 days. Then we went, we were on the list, went up and: no table available. I made a reservation for a VIP table with a bottle of Cava and we arrive and there is no table available. Luckily a couple just left and we got a place on the sofa side looking out the window onto the beach. Seriously that was the worst stay with the most mistakes and failures I ever had as a guest. My friend let all those points I wrote be known to a senior receptionist staffer and I struggled with letting a bad review be posted. However even though months have past since March I am still very upset and angry about our stay and your service, since my friend and I simply treat our guests very differently. I seriously hope this is going to be taking as constuctive criticism since you'll have to do better and given all the bad reviews already on here and other websites the bad comments in per cent are way above average for other hotels in the same or even 4 star categories. I cannot recommend a stay in your hotel which is a very sad thing to say. I get that things can go wrong and if it were just one or two things, but I haven't even mentioned the little things....

For extra the hotel need a credit card , like everywhere.For extra I gave a new credit card , not the card I paid for , because that card I forgot it at home.It was a big problem for them , although the amount was charged by the hotel three months in advance.I see athers guests who had no problems and stayed very much at check-in. I am Gold Member at Starwood , but it never happened to me like this-should always be a beginning . I do not recomend this hotel

Stayed in this hotel couple of times and probably my favourite hotel ever with stunning views from the rooms, rooftop bar and access to the beach as well as to Barcelona marina. The staff is very helpful, friendly and music at the lounge creates a vibe and liveliness in the hotel makes its quite good experience during my stays. Only minor point to note - It has no inhouse dry cleaning facilities

The first impression is the most important, and having Kathleen check us in made it so much better. She was warm and welcoming. Her collegue, the gentleman with the braces was great as well, so nice (i apologize but i am unable to recall his name because of his accent).The ocean view in our room was breath taking. The hotel is very clean and open. The only disappointment was the nightclub, Eclipse. Though the signature drinka were delicious, the music and the vibe was a let down. All in all, we would love to return in the summer so we can enjoy the beach.
