We stayed here for 4 nights and it was perfect. The room was splendid. The lobby is very impressive and the staff are very helpful. Wifi is an added bonus. The artwork on display in the lobby is a nice touch. It is within walking distance of the city centre. The manager is a gent. Would have no hesitation in... More

Stayed here with my family and was quite uncomfortable for the two night stay. We reserved for a queen bed and a sofa bed and the room we received had two twin beds and a sofa bed. The two floor room was poorly lit and very small. The sink in the bathroom clogged up and the shower floor was dirty.... More

This was a great hotel in a good location for exploring the city. It was a very reasonably priced hotel with good quality facilities. About 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street. There is a fabulous restaurant La Catalana which did the most amazing tapas and wonderful wine at really good prices. I look forward to my return trip... More

We have stayed at Balmes several times as we arewatching Barcelona football. Great place and really good service. We get upgraded to rooms with terraces each time. Ok breakfast. The onlye minus is that bar/restaurant is closed in weekends. Strange

Please be careful when reserving for a family, we reserved a one queen bed and a sofa bed room for almost $250 per night and were given a sofa bed with two small beds. The room is divided in two spaces so they can comply with the measure requirements but none of the spaces is big enough to fit two... More

This hotel worked well for us as we needed to be near a specific location, however it worked well in its proximity to all of the tourist areas as well. It was only 3 blocks from the hop on, hop off stop and even closer to all of the outdoor cafes.

Near Barcelona's fabulous restaurants and walking streets, this hotel is smart, modern and very good value. The service is polite and efficient and my room was impeccable. The rooms are modern, quiet, well equipped and I had a great night's sleep. The area is gorgeous..Barcelona's best.

We only stayed for one night at this hotel, staff were friendly, the room was clean and quiet! The bathroom was new with quality towels and a decent bath. The location, whilst in walking distance to Catalunya square and Las Ramblas is a little out of the way. That said, many tourists prefer this, however we also stayed closer to... More

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.
