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

the rooms are poor. Spring matress, very noisy, you can ear car everything in the coridors since quite early. Decor is poor and the AC is old, noisy and not refreshing at all. The breakfast is 16,5€ per person. The gym are only is just two machines: cycle and runing. No matress for abs/yoga nor weights. We had a bigger... More

I was a little worried as I didn’t book this hotel, but the client I was working for did. Well, the client must like us because this place is great. The Hotel Balmoral is located within a healthy walking distance to Sagrada Familia, La Rambla, and some of the best restaurants in Barcelona. The location is great. For my fellow... More

Very nice place to stay. In the right place of the city, close to all sight seening places and away from the noisy places. €5 and a taxi will bring you to the trainstation or you can walk, from there it's 25 min to the aeroporto. Subways are even closer. I had a single room inside so no noise from... More

We were at the hotel for an outing and tried hard to make friends. However , we couldn't have found The City of Barcelona more friendly and accommodating except for the our hotel. The front desk is not friendly or helpful. Forget about asking for help with local restaurants and outings. The bar simply gets a zero. Our group avoided... More

The hotel was chosen due to the location and proximity to a venue where the group would haver some meetings. It's an average 4* hotel in Gran Via where you can easily reach the main attractions of Barcelona. The rooms are simple but stay away from the interior patio view standard rooms. They're dark and not friendly at all. I... More

I and a group of friends I have just spent a long weekend at the Balmoral Hotel. The hotel was spotlessly clean. Very comfortable. Breakfast was very appetising and plenty of it. The bar staff were very helpful. The drinks were very reasonably priced.
