3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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
