HOTEL CHECK SPAIN, W Barcelona


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…

The lobby walls sparkle like a

Breakfast is available in two restaurants. We recommend Bravo for...

A petite and elegant presentation, cozy
interiors and possibility to dine outside
on the terrace

City view. Below is the huge terrace WET
WET features a pool, pool bar and loungers, and is just in front of the beach. 

More cool features...
