This famous hotel caters first and foremost to the city’s LGBT visitors, although it does operate a hetero-friendly policy too, meaning everyone feels welcome here. Located in the heart of Barcelona’s gay quarter in Eixample, nicknamed ‘Gayxample,’ there are a number of bars inside the hotel, including the popular Sky Bar, which is located around the swimming pool on the rooftop offering a great view of the city. The rooms combine a modern feel with the essence of the Mediterranean lifestyle, and the hotel restaurant offers a variety of modern Spanish dishes.

The hotel décor is modern and minimalist but with an air of simplistic luxury, while the rooms are generally bright and many come with their own outside terrace with a seating area and sun lounger. In addition to the main restaurant there is another more casual dinning area as well as two bars: an elegant cocktail bar downstairs and a rooftop bar on the seventh floor of the hotel.

The most iconic of Barcelona’s hotels, the W Hotel is located at the very tip of the Barceloneta pier, perched on its own private beach and surrounded by nothing but the Mediterranean sea. Opened just a few years ago, the ‘Hotel Vela’ – or ‘Sail Hotel’ as it is known by locals, owing to its sail-like shape – has fast become the trendiest hotel in Barcelona. The lobby area and downstairs restaurant and bar boast a futurist design, combining bold aesthetics with an eye for comfort and convenience. The Eclipse nightclub located on the 26th floor of the hotel is one the most exclusive nightclubs in Barcelona.
