I did stay at this hotel last week for one night and I am so glad it was only for a short stay. When I arrived to the hotel the receptionist, before saying hello told me "I cannot see your booking" which it was a bit shocking but that was no issue as the system was down, so totally understood...

Amazing location! Nice swimming pool. The room is just OK.clean but quite small and LOUD! Slow wifi speed and unstable connection. Unfriendly stuff, especially those older guys. Won't judge the service there

Okay, positives first. I'll get them out of the way. Rooms were simple and clean. Beds were comfortable and the cleaning staff were consistently good. I loved how you can get WiFi from anywhere in the hotel and it is reasonably fast. I'd also just like to point out that my review is of my families' experience at this hotel... More

It was placed near the Passaz de Gracias street and near the train station you take to go at the airport! Also, the general area was very quiet and good and you felt safe when you walked outside during the night hours! Finally, the room was very clean and good with nice view and the reception staff was very polite!!... More

This little hotel is just on a perfect location - two minutes walk to Passeig de Gracia. And then, a few steps down the street - there is Casa Batlo, a few steps up - there is La Pedrera. As we are good walkers we went by foot almost everywhere. For someone who doesn't like it, there is metro and... More

First of all I had booked this hotel on Lastminute.com thinking it was a 4 star hotel however it turned out to be only 3 stars, it is also confusing as there is more than one Balmes hotel in Barcelona...

We have just returned from a 3 night break to Barcelona, staying at Balmes. The hotel is well placed and a good base for sight seeing around the city. Approx 15 -20 mins walk to La Rambla and 2 blocks across from some of Gaudi's fabulous buildings. On our first night we stayed in a standard room, situated at the... More

This is a lovely hotel if you want to be close to the main shopping streets in Barcelona (had to buy an extra suitcase) and there are great places to eat and chill out near by, not to mention access to the Metro at Balmes/Provenza. However, the blot on the landscape for me was that despite the very small size... More
