PROS AND CONS OF THE W HOTEL IN BARCELONA
It can’t go unnoticed. This sail shaped building of 99 meters high at the seaside it’s seen from miles away, changing completely the seascape. Although the polemic construction of the W Hotel at only 20 meters from the sea (Spanish law states 100 meters from the sea), it has already become an emblematic contemporary building from the city, and the first hotel in Western Europe from the Starwood Hotels and Resorts chain. The architect was the well-known Ricardo Bofill.
5 reasons to stay at the Barcelona Hotel W:
It deserves a huge Wow. Two complete floors and 700 square meters dedicated to beauty and relax. There’s a boutique, two manicure and pedicure nail stations, treatment rooms, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi… and a wide range of Trademark Bliss services. Check their website for weekday discounts!
Other hotels with great spa.
The drink bar of the Barcelona Hotel W is definitely worth a visit, as much as for its great cocktails and music, as for its views. It’s located on the 26th floor and it’s open every evening. Go at sunset if you are not a party goers, or arrive after midnight for a magical and chic dancing night. Don’t hesitate to try their Passion Fruit Martini or a Mojito!
Bravo 24 restaurant by chef Carles Abellán
Have you ever wonder what people from Barcelona from the 15th to the 18th centuries ate? Carlos Abellán, Michelin star chef, cooks at the Bravo 24 restaurant traditional old recipes using modern methods and high quality products.
Meat, fish and seafood are the main dishes, often broiled on wood or charcoal to preserve all natural flavors. It also offers an all-day tapas service (we love their bravas, bombas and croquettes).
