“Great value hotel in central location ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

This hotel is great value. 8 of us stayed in Hotel Balmes for 3 nights and have no complaints - it is a great base for exploring Barcelona and only a few Metro stops away from Barca FC's stadium. Good size twin rooms, which are both clean and comfy. Also some good restaurants in close proximity. I would definitely recommend the hotel and stay there the next time I visit the city.

Good location, clean, not too noisy and staff is very accomodating.
If you go for the offer of buying breakfast for several days, it's a bargain.

Dear guest,

Thank you for (4) your words,

but I have to tell you that I don´t agree.

If a client have a problem we try to solve it, and all the rooms are very clean, perhaps you will not like the decoration , the style, the ubication, etc,I can accept it but not the other things.

Thanks.

The room was outstanding for my friend and I, enough space for luggage and ability to move, I especially loved the shower :), the beds were comfy but the walls were a bit thin we could hear everything happening outside the room. Breakfast seemed ok but not worthy of 14 euros! There was a lovely terrace with a jacuzzi and swimming pool. The hotel staff were so friendly and helpful with any query we had. The hotel was very close to all the important attractions (Ramblas, Passeig de Gracia, and 2 or 3 metro stations to Camp Nou to which we had to go to watch FC Barcelona game :D) The metro station itself was 8 minute walk (in Passeig de Gracia), and went on foot to Sagrada Familia which was down the avenue (Mallorca). All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Barcelona, and I, for myself, wouldn't mind staying there again
