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

Stayed 3 nights mid July. Very nice room with street view. Nice extras like potpourri clothes packet. Front desk staff were very helpful and kind, and fluent english speakers. The hotel is in walking distance of few Gaudi locations. I took a 2 day Hop on/Hop off bus tour that was under 40 $US and so worth it. The MNAC... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Our room was great, had all the facilities we required (bed, sofa, mini bar, air conditioning) but best of all was the private outside space. We had patio doors that let onto a small balcony then steps down to a large terrace area, complete with table, chairs and sun loungers. It was very... More

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.

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.
