We have just stayed in this hotel for a four night break. Rooms are very clean and functional. We were on 5th floor with a view of the street and it was very quiet with just a faint rumble of the metro. Bathroom adequate but I wish the hair dryer was not attached to the wall as I went with...

Just arrived in the high speed train from Madrid. Hotel is a short ride via taxi from the train station and steps from Calle Las Ramblas. Bring your comfoŕtable walking shoes and take a nap so you can enjoy the culture, food and nightlife Barcelona offers. Breakfast and WiFi is included

Nico at the front desk was amazing. He was not only friendly but helpful. He actually went down the street and got me a converter, and he wanted to give it to me for free. The complimentary breakfast was far beyond what I expected. The location was perfect--quiet and it added to the ambience of beautiful Barcelona.

The room was fine, but the shower is in the bathtub with a very small space to get in and out. For a senior traveler, this can be problematic. The breakfast is good. However, the dinner menu includes only sandwiches and the service is terrible! It took two hours to get a sandwich and pay the bill.

This lovely boutique hotel was recommended to us by a friend who lives and works in Barcelona. What a gift! We paid just about 100euros/night for a spacious, quiet room with twin beds on a single headboard, a modern bathroom, TV and free WiFi - excellent lighting for reading or working. The staff was exceptionally gracious - even to printing... More

I had a bad experience in this hotel. My bathroom window (room 805) was huge and I was surprised by another guest watching me naked in my bathroom from the other room window. The windows were so close that I could even touch him if I wanted to. There was no warning at the window and no chain preventing the... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with a Gate1 Tour. It really is just not very nice. The room is very small, and very noisy, you can hear both street traffic and noise from hallway/other rooms . The bathroom was the worst though. There is a bidet placed about 4 inches in front of the toliet. Does not make it easy... More

Good staff can make a difference, this was not true for the Balmoral, the staff were good but it did not change the fact that the hotel has very little to offer other than cost. Do not stay in room 505! It has whited out windows that do not let you have good light as you look out to an... More

Had to stay 5 nights in Barcelona for being at the Hispack trade show. To stay in a hotel around FIRA for such a long time did not attract me very much so I decided to stay "in town" but a bit away from all the hussle at Placa Catalunya. The Abba Balmoral was a very good choice. I had... More
