Centrally located, friendly staff and comfortable - ideal for a short city break - we walked everywhere from here! Jacuzzi and pool were a bonus. Room had a small balcony area which gave extra space. Adults and teenagers all enjoyed it

We are on a 14 day Spain and Portugal vacation with friends and started our stay here in Barcelona. Very convenient location for site seeing, shopping and restaurants. Not the best place we stayed on the trip but it was clean and comfortable and well located. Nice pool and jacuzzi.

The Balmes is a good but not outstanding hotel. The front desk was efficient but did not seems exceptionally eager to help. The rooms were small but clean and sufficient. Breakfast was good (not outstanding) but expensive and the same thing every day. The location is good and within walking distance (about 20 minutes) of most of the main attractions... More

Balmes is a really friendly hotel within easy distance of La Rambla and the gothic quarter. The room was really clean and comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. Excellent choice of continental breakfast.

I booked online months before my trip. I regretted it almost immediately because my cruise line offered better hotels with tranfers. I was stunned when we pulled up in front of a beautiful hotel. The interior was decorated beautifully. Our room had two small twin beds which was a problem for me. But most of the hotels I see in... More

This hotel was quiet central to local restaurants and shopping centres as well as popular attractions. The rooms were clean and well maintained although the bathroom was a bit on the smaller side. The staff were ok but not overly helpful in reception. The hotel bar was open only one night of the stay and was poorly stocked, most requested... More
