If you are looking for a convenient hotel with excellent customer service at a reasonable rate - try The Hotel Balmes. We were a little leery after we booked this hotel for such a great rate, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. - very central location to all sites, a front desk that will go the extra...

We got room on the first floor with window facing the inner wall. The smell was not exactly fresh. Wall are thin, so everything was audible and tobacco smoke drifted in our room. The room was really expensive for what it offered. Wifi is slow and requires logging in every time. Breakfast was nice, but not enough space for all... More

This compact hotel is wonderfully located for exploring Barcelona, rated at 3 stars it goes beyond that in many ways, with a nice attention to detail and good facilities. Staff are good if not spectacular, breakfast is limited but more than satisfactory and the hotel and rooms are appointed in a very contemporary and modern way. There is a limited... More

Nice little hotel with a good central location. I stayed with two of my kids in a grand old room, which was beautifull in its decoration. The hotel has a small garden with a small pool, which was great though after a long hot day walking the streets of this wonderfull city. I am coming back, because it have what... More

Very neat, silent area, near the Rambla and many shopping centers. Close to metro stations can visit so many attractions easily. Rooms are a little bit small. Nice breakfast tasty but no variety. I will chose it again in the next visit to Barcelona

Our stay was fine - clean, functional, good location, pleasant and helpful staff, slightly high priced breakfast buffet for what we got but otherwise good. We had everything we needed, including a bar fridge!

If feel I need to help this hotel to a better TA rating. It is only three star and it delivers that. Boringish rooms but clean and functional. Very good fruit salad at the breakfast. Catalan bread, Spanish omelette and local ham. No pancake chef, but I did not expect that. The area is their biggest asset. Close to metro... More

I simple love this hotel. Fantastic location with dozens of exceptional restaurants within a stones throw. Great rooms, and the team couldn't be more helpful. Lovely garden area - perfect for a coffee or beer, sitting in the sun. Highly recommended.

Stayed here twice now for work. Rooms at the back of the hotel are quieter. Rooms always clean and good rate for the location. Many good restaurants a very short distance away. Had breakfast in the cafe next door so can't comment on food here. Reception staff not overly friendly but didn't bother me really.

Overall, I would rate this very centrally-located hotel a very good value for the price I paid. The bed could have been a bit more comfortable, but overall, it was a very good stay. Internet access was very important for me and I had no problems with Wi-Fi access in my room. I would recommend this hotel as a great... 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.
