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.

Overall, this really didn't meet my expectations of a four star hotel. Good: -Central enough location, but not on a busy thoroughfare so not too noisey -Friendly staff -Comfy bed Bad: -Poor breakfast offering -Poorly ventilated room -Mould build up outside bathroom window -Room facing into a dark shaft -3 euro for a tiny bottle of water from the minibar...

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

Cared for hotel. Friendly staff, proactive and keen. Rooms are modern, clean and comfortable. Bar is a little "sterile" but comfortable enough. Would come again, was a business trip this time, but love Barcelona so will look to come to this hotel next time on a holiday visit to this great City.

The Abba Balmoral hosted a big meeting this week for people from around the world. For Europeans, the hotel was fine, a typical 4 star with rooms a bit on the small side and quite a few with no windows. For the US and APAC visitors, we knock a star off the rating. Our APAC visitors were not impressed. Breakfast... More
