W Hotel Barcelona
Shaped like a large mirrored sail with 26 floors and 472 rooms, offers you everything you might need during your stay in the city. On approaching the hotel, you will be amazed by its looming modern exterior. The lobby area follows suit - a large expanse of mute coloured sofas and large coffee tables lead to large floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean.
The hotel gives a 'hip' atmosphere - its lobby buzzes with well-dressed international people, promptly booked into the new five star in town. It has a very modern feel and is in only 20 minutes walk from the nearest metro Barceloneta. However it does offer the ultimate in luxury if that is what you are looking for.
There is also fitness centre that is available in the hotel. It is open to all hotel customers and is open 24 hours a day every day of the week. Furthermore, the hotel offers you an access to the swimming pool, plenty of chill zones, restaurant, a cub located in one of the top floors and even a spa!
