Just returned from a three night stay here. Lovely hotel, great value for money and very clean. Hotel pool is small but lovely. No complaints at all. Only point, we thought the breakfast was rather expensive at €14 but didn't affect us as we decided to eat out. Would definitely return to this hotel. Very enjoyable stay.

We're on our 4th visit to the Balmes Hotel and wouldn't stay anywhere else in Barcelona! Great location and nice swimming pool and grounds! Very welcoming after a day in the city. Staff are friendly and helpful. Always ready to recommend restaurants etc.. Will be back next year!

The Balmes offers very convenient accomodation in the centre of Barcelona, still quiet and reasonably priced. You need to walk maybe 5-10 minutes to Las Ramblas, but it is worth it, as there are less tourists around. The room was very comfortable and clean, with nice bathroom. Even though my room was rather small, I liked it.

I stayed in a Superior room, which was huge and beautifully furnished. Hotel seemed very new or recently renovated. Great location - quiet street within walking distance to Sagrada Familia, Gaudi's masterpieces, Plaza de Catalunya, etc. Breakfast was good, but I'd say it isn't worth the 14EUR they charge, so I wouldn't recommend it if you have the time to...

Just returned from Barcelona. I've stayed two nights at the Balmes Hotel. The hotel is very easy to reach in the city center, 10-15 mins walk to the famous La Rambla street. 5 mins walk to Diagonal or Passeig de Garcia metro station. I would say that the pros of this hotel is its location, the rooms are small but... More
