|W is a Barcelona landmark; locals often |
call it Hotel Vela (the sail hotel)
At W Barcelona you can truly have a cosmopolitan beach holiday. The best of two worlds, one of the most amazing cities in the world just 5 minutes by taxi, and the beach at your doorstep. Select Collection checked in for a weekend to see if this gem was still as good as it was a year ago when we last visited....
And yes, it was probably even better. Because this hotel has managed the very unusual, to be cool and trendy and offer a truly five star service. The staff is just as attentive as in a classic iconic 5 star hotel. The concierge team deserves a special mentioning.
To sum it up there was basically just one thing we did not like, the lack of free wifi in the room.
But let’s take a snapshot tour…
