Stayed here for 5 nights on a vacation and room was clean neat and lovely while service and breakfasts were outstanding. Free Wi-Fi worked most of the time and let us catch up on emails. Front desk was helpful and had great suggestions on places to eat.

We recently stayed at thus hotel for 3 nights and can say we had a very pleasant stay. Our room was very clean and comfy. The only fault I could mention and I am being picky was the shower. I really don't understand showers that work from the tap. You spend 5 minutes trying to get the temperature right and... More

This Hotel is in a good location to all the sightseeing area's, great shopping and plenty of little bars and restaurants very close by to satisfy all your Barcelona cravings.

Great location for exploring the city in a quiet and upmarket neighbourhood. Close to a metro station and a short walk to Gaudi's Casa Batllo - and lots of designer shops en route from the hotel to the central square and las ramblas. Although not in the busiest part of town there's ample bars and tapas places nearby. The rooms... More

Location good - quite central, about 40 mins walk from Hotel down to Port Vell area, but Metro close if required. Room nice and clean, staff friendly. Didn't have breakfast with our deal and for 16 euros, thought it was an expensive extra, plenty of cafes nearby however.

The Abba Balmoral has just cancelled my University study tour stay just 20 days before departure. We had simply requested that the mini bars in the rooms be locked (as per University guidelines), and they told my travel agent that this would cost them money (devalue the rooms.) They insisted on a letter detailing our school group and our intentions... More

This hotel is at a pretty convenient location across the road of the 2 main shopping street of Barcelona. Metro is only 5-10minute walk away. It's clean and the breakfast was amazing! Wifi however wasn't working all the time and it was pretty slow but the staffs were very helpful and give you all the direction you need.

Nice, spacious room, polite and helpful staff. Wifi a bit sketchy, though.. My stay was for free, so can't say anything about value for money, but the hotel is located quite central to most venues of the city; 1-2 stops with the metro to Guell Park, Sagrada Familia and La Rambla
