Great location in Barcelona to stay, breakfast was lovely, rooms were tidy and clean, great shower and comfortable beds and linen. The hotel staff made us feel very welcome and the decor was fresh and modern. I am not a big fan of the toilet facing the bed and having a frosted glass door which is why I didn't give... More

I came here with a group of friends for a few days and our room was so dark and dingy we definitely did not feel like we were in Spain. Of an evening it also gets very noisy with fights and people shouting after a few too many drinks so our sleep was interrupted quite a lot. Within our first... More

We really feel we got value for money. Balmes Hotel is close to everything: Rambla, restaurants, shopping and taxis. The service at the hotel was excellent. All persons were very helpful. We are sure we will come back to Balmes Hotel, barcelona when we - hopefully - soon come back. Best regards....Winnie & Stig

We had a family suite which gave plenty of space for the 4 of us. Very clean. Great decor, bathroom and mini kitchen. Perfect location for metro, cafes, shops. Staff very friendly and helpful. A real bonus to have access to pool, spa and sun deck in city centre. Will recommend to friends and family. We had a perfect stay.... More

This hotel is beautiful, affordable, in an amazing location. Ask for a room with a new bed. One of the few places in Europe you can actually get a quality king sized bed. No split. Was like sleeping on a cloud. Wish I could have stayed longer. Everyone there is super nice. I give staff 5 stars. They held our... More

This hotel is excellent value for money, centrally located and a great place to stay if you want to see the city. We were given a room on the second floor with a large terrace, which was a really nice touch. We found the maid to be a bit noisy in the mornings, it seemed she got prepared for her... More

Had a quiet room on 4th floor. Room was silent at night although you could unfortunately hear the plumbing. Room was average size but quite adequate. Located a block and a half off "The Ramblas" was very convenient to all attractions. Staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately as I suppose with most European hotels the were no tea or coffee...

This stylish, modern hotel is well located and has a lovely pool in a leafy garden terrace. We really enjoyed our stay and were allocated a spacious family room (two separate bedrooms & a well-equipped bathroom). Good value for money. Would definitely stay there again!

This hotel is in a great location. Couldn't have asked for better having never been to Barcelona. I was on the first floor and the room was very noisy but clean ( the cleaning staff was very good).

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.
