We enjoyed a 3 night stay at Balmes where we found most of the reception staff to be friendly and helpful. Our priority in staying in Barcelona was to visit the Sagrada Familia but when we went there the next morning they had no entry spots until 12pm the next day. The lady informed us that to be sure of... More

We arrived to be shown to a room that had painters inside. They hurried to clean it all up, only to let us peak into this beautiful room with grand ceilings, a fireplace, and balcony with incredible view. Then, they moved us to a room....in the basement. It smelled dank, was dark, and not even close to what we had... More

I stayed for one night on business and will not be staying again. On arrival, there was no record of my booking, fortunately there was a room available.

Traveled for business, stayed only one night. I happened to meet the General Manager who was at the front desk when I arrived, very friendly and warm! I had a great sleep, ordered room service which was delicious and well presented. I will definitely come back to this hotel in my next visit to Barcelona, whether for business or leisure.

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.
