We enjoyed out stay. Good value for money in BCN. Pool area was quite small like expected because of the location near city center. Service was very friendly and helpful to give information about city also.

I stayed for one week with my family, kids loved the swimming pool and I really liked the sauna and jacuzzi. My room was very clean and comfortable. Overall a pretty good choice for the next time I visit Barcelona.

Exiample neighborhood of Barcelona is great for cafes,bars, and restaurants. Have to agree on the previous review stating the pool area was taken over by 8-10 British hens party which disrupted everyone and pretty... More

The hotel was just fine, no complaints about the room, though the mattresses could be better, and the decor has more of a business feel than a leisure destination. But it's clean, and the shower was hot. With one notable exception, the men at the front desk were, at best, perfunctory, even somewhat dismissive of requests. A good variety was... More

Balmes is located comfortably in a walking distance to both shopping and attractions. A longer distnace to Ramblas but walking doesn´t metter so much in Barcelona. Many good tapas restaurants around the corner. All facilities breath cleanliness and comfort. Very comfortable bad. Very good breakfast with fresh food. Wifi works perfectly.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
