Spanish architect, Ricardo Bofill, designed the W Hotel in Barcelona.

Completed in 2009, this 24 story, sail-shaped building, has become a landmark on the shoreline, providing exceptional Mediterranean views.

W Barcelona:

“An avant-garde icon of stunning architecture rising high above the Mediterranean in Spain’s most dynamic and stylish city, W Barcelona is designed by world-famed architect Ricardo Bofill. Located along the famed boardwalk La Barceloneta, the launch of W Barcelona brings an unprecedented sensory multiplex of entertainment, recreation, culinary delights, nightlife, and hospitality to one of the most exciting European destinations.

Unwind at Spain’s first Bliss® Spa, indulge in our signature restaurant BRAVO by Carles Abellan or cool off at WET®. Energize at SWEAT® before ascending into Ignite Group’s Eclipse rooftop bar and get caught up in the DJ’s beats that pulse into the blue horizon.
