After my week in London, it was time to move on to my next destination, Barcelona, Spain. The first hotel I stayed at in Barcelona was definitely famous in the city. It’s a spectacle and it’s right along the beach. Have you guessed which hotel I’m talking about yet? You’re so smart, yes, it’s the W Hotel Barcelona. You can see this hotel from many popular areas of the city, and it’s gorgeous. It’s basically a large work of art. It has a very unique shape and proudly displays the large W at the top.
When entering the hotel, the first thing you’ll notice are the four hanging chairs in the lobby. It’s a great place to sit and very comfortable indeed. This adds to the futuristic modern design of the hotel. Looking up is also quite interesting with the column in the middle. I checked in at the reception, and then it was up to my room to observe the masterpiece.
As soon as I opened the door, I began to jump for joy because the room was so gorgeous. Lots of white and nice lighting really set the room off. The W brand is known for having an in-your-face design and this room was no different. However, unlike the W Bangkok for example, this room was less about colors and more about the absence of them. It almost felt like I was in heaven!
When you first walk in, to the left is the bathroom and shower. With typical W fashion, the bathroom is connected to the room. The shower stall is large and could fit several people. Wink.
Before I went to sleep, I couldn’t help but take pictures of the beautiful view. It was simply gorgeous and the next morning was nothing besides amazing.
After getting my night’s sleep, I headed down the beautiful red hallways to the gym. I’ve seen some fairly large hotel gyms in my life, like in Korea, but this one was huge! I got there early before anyone was there and I had this sports-field sized gym to myself. They use Technogym equipment throughout the premises. From the gym, you can access the pool area and the sauna. There are multiple pools!
I remember how amazing the breakfast was at the W Bangkok and got excited for the buffet breakfast in Barcelona. I was not disappointed folks. Included in the price is your choice of à la carte options and a large buffet selection. I went with the goat cheese sandwich and it had a great flavor. On the buffet, I especially enjoyed the various meat selections. Even though the hotel was very busy, the staff were great at taking care of my needs. Don’t miss your chance to have a nice glass of Cava during breakfast to really enjoy the morning!
My one night stay at the W Hotel Barcelona was fairly smooth and enjoyable. There was a bit of an internet issue, which I was assured was a one off problem, but other than that, I enjoyed my time there. I’ve seen all kinds of beautifully designed hotels with great views, but this definitely made one of the top spots. The location of this property, along with the design of the rooms and the facilities make this a hotel you can’t miss! The food was not a bad touch either. Wink. At the end of the day, if you’re looking for a hotel with a beautiful design, great location and wonderful service then I would highly recommend that you check out the W Hotel in Barcelona, Spain.
