This hotel is situated in the old town part which is quiet and traditionally Spanish. The other end of the town is the 'Blackpool' part (if you know what I mean).

I was worried needlessly about this hotel having read various other reviews. Drop off by From 2 Travel was at top of the street which wasn't any problem (transfer times were long due to various drop off's but we were quick away from the airport) The reception staff were friendly and helpful, spoke English. Our room, facing street was all... More

I lived in the hotel for 2 weeks. Asked a little earlier letter to book a nice room. The staff booked a great room with two balconies. Room number 145. Cleaning-good. Very pleasant attitude towards guests. The breakfasts are very diverse. Thank you for a nice stay. I am very grateful!

A comfortable hotel, awarded the FAMILY TOURISM certificate and ISO 9001. It is a family-friendly hotel, regularly modernized, with a large garden with swings for the children and swimming pools for both adults and children, plus a hydro-massage pool, to make your holiday a truly memorable experience.Besides rooms, the hotel has studios and apartments that can be reserved with "self catering" or daily cleaning and breakfast buffet or half board, ideal for families with children. Hotel Balmes is the ideal spot for a great holiday with your partner, family or friends. It is situated in the quiet, residential area of Calella, close to the beach, the shopping district and the train station. It is very easy to reach from the motorway. At Hotel Balmes all meals are buffet-style and during the summer season (June to September) we offer an entertainment programme for children and adults, as well as opportunities to take part in free activities provided on Calella’s beach, such as kayaking, salsa, trips to the lighthouse, various sports, and so on. The hotel’s location in the town makes it a very appealing sport for participants of the Costa de Barcelona-Maresme Half Challenge and Challenge triathlons, as it is very close to the starting line, the change-over points, the finishing line and the site of the pasta party and the award ceremony. Hotel Balmes accepts dogs (up to 10 kg in weight) at a moderate cost. Hotel Balmes, the perfect hotel for your family holiday! ... more   less
