Room with a view

Pros: This hotel from start to finish was lovely! Yes it is expensive but as a treat it is definitely worth it! The view is fantastic and although we were out of the hotel most of the day, we spend a few hours before heading out in the evening relaxing and people watching. The hotel bar is very nice but can get quite crowded late in the evening, drinks are fairly expensive but they are strong ones! We found the staff courteous, polite and very helpful! As it was November the pool was a bit chilly to use but the views were still worth going upstairs for! It is a fair walk if you are planning on going sight seeing but we enjoyed the walk along the beach promenade and into town, really made you appreciate the fact that barcelona has everything, beach and city!
Cons: My only real complaint which I have reflected in the room comfort scoring is the air conditioning wasnt cold enough, even after a call to reception! Im not sure if it was because it was the colder season but the minimum temperature was 18 degress which is far too warm for sleeping in my opinion. I called reception and they said they would reset it to 16....this is still too hot but anyhow didnt make any difference, still 18 afterwards! We also didnt opt for breakfast as we felt 33 euro per person for breakfast was a bit ridiculous!
Location: Quite far out of the main town but I think its worth it to get the best of both worlds if you dont mind walking!

A real treat!

Lovely stay in W hotel. staff couldn't do enough to make our stay as wonderful as our room description - Wonderful A good 30 min walk to las ramblas but to be honest if its too hot to contemplate there are taxis outside the hotel that cost approx 5 euros I would say the hotel is better than described on the website. Lovely atmosphere, views and very much enjoyed the music. A few little extras that are memorable - ices by the pool, towels for the beach.....bliss Ive tried hard to think of a negative and could only come up with a shortage of hooks in the bedroom for the luxurious bath robes Recommend to anyone who likes a little piece of heaven for a few days.
