"Family of 4, 2 night stay at Balmes"
Stayed in a room for 4 people (situated at the rear of the hotel - overlooking the pool area). The room was a duplex arrangement with a sofabed downstairs and a double bedroom upstairs. This worked perfectly for us so the kids couold have their own space. There was not a lot of space but it was fine for a short city break. The location of the hotel was great and we could walk or catch public transport to all the sites very easily. The pool was very handing for cooling down after or before sightseeing. We would definitely stay here again.

"Disappointing!!!"
I do not recommend to stay here. Points: - Front desk: - staff struggled to communicate in English, not friendly at all. Watch out for the final bill too, tried to over charge us - Room Service:- 9pm tried to order food on room phone, spoke to two people and they could not understand English so I gave up. - Pool Area:- small and shaded by tall trees, No available bar until 7pm. No food available for the pool area either. - Information - lack of room brochures on Hotel Services and Attractions in Barcelona. - Cleanliness:- cleaning staff were the best part of our stay, they were very friendly, helpful and rooms were very clean. There friendliness and helpfulness actually put the front desk staff to shame.

The hotel was ok biggest issue for us was a member of staff on reception who was frankly rude, the hotel is also extremely noisy if your room is on the ground floor and not cleanest, dust simply pushed under the bed

"Very central - three of Gaudi's creations nearby"
We walked to three of Gaudi's creations. Sagrada Familia is amazing, also Predera and Casa Boltt. The hotel staff were excellent and very helpful. Internet access in lobby was very convenient as I had difficulties with my phone. The pool was great to cool down. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

"Over Rated 2 star"
Terrible, dismissive and rude front reception staff. the hotel is a bit shabby as the money was spent on the front lobby and African art while the rooms were left to be rundown. the pool area is small an overcrowded with tons of children splashing the guest and using the Jacuzzi as a pool. cleaning staff worked hard and were pleasant but forgot to put toilet paper in our room twice and had to ask repeatedly for it. over all a terrible experience.

"Scored 3 overall, 4 or 5 possible, but for ......."
Stayed for 6 nights (Sunday to Saturday). check in was quick and easy, shown to our room (room 116) by hotel porter who explained everything in the room and about hotel. Room was very clean and comfortable and fully air conditioned. The whole hotel was lovely with African art scattered around, we never made use of restaurant, but did use the bar which was quiet and goo d place to chill for a bit. Location of this hotel was perfect for everything, bus tours, underground, shopping and some Gaudi buildings. unfortunately a few things stopped us giving it a higher score, every morning between 0730 & 0800 hrs building work started in other rooms on our floor. So every morning we we're woken by builders talking outside our door and constant banging from room renovations. On one occasion opened our door to a dust filled corridor. Could not use our rooms in afternoon for a quick rest as noise so loud. Also on one morning at 8am someone just opened our door while we we're still sleeping and we thought it was a intruder, just house keeping who quickly apologised and left. Thought they would of knocked before storming straight in. Pool area was very nice, but screaming kids running around did ruin it for us so only spent around 3hrs the whole week. This hotel would of got higher, but not being informed of building work was a bit off.

"Lovely hotel in the city"
The hotel was a 10 Euro taxi from the beach or you could get the metro with a short walk either end. Las ramblas was a short walk to the metro that took you directly onto it which was ideal. It was very clean and served its purpose of a place to sleep each night. Only issue was a lack of sun beds and small pool not always in the sun but that wasn't what we chose the hotel for.

"relaxing and very comfortable"
we had an enjoyable stay during our four day visit. On arrival, the hotel staff (extremely courteous and professional) offered us an upgrade. Our upgraded room was excellent and we enjoyed an evening turn-down service where the room was beautifully prepared for bedtime with chocolate on the bedside, a linen mat on the floor at each side of the bed to step on to getting in/out of bed. The towels in the bathroom were perhaps the most luxurious we have seen and the bathroom was spotless with all modern amenities. We would happily stop here again - now that we know the walking route to las ramblas. some really good restaurants near the hotel. Well done to the staff and excellent work by housekeeping.

"Excellent Hotel near to Main Tourist Areas"
We had a wonderful holiday for six days in Barcelona. The Hotel was convenient for many of the places that people like to visit but away from the immediately busy streets. We have rarely slept in such a quiet room in a large city. There are an abundance of places to eat within a 10 minute walk of the hotel. The 'Sagrada Familia' is along the same street with a 30 minute walk. The staff had a reasonably good command of English. Our room was ready when we arrived early at the hotel. We had a memorable holiday which we would be pleased to repeat, and recommend to others

"Nice basic hotel in an excellent location"
We stayed in Balmes for the duration of a 9 day trip to Barcelona. As we were seeking to explore the city, we chose to stay in a reasonably basic hotel close to the city centre, but we would have got more for our money had we been willing to stay outside the centre. The area surrounding the hotel was lovely, with many bars and restaurants. As we are keen walkers, we walked for most of our trip, but also found it easy to take the Metro as required. The hotel itself was very clean and well maintained, with a pleasing lobby, garden, pool area and terrace, and the staff, though serious, were professional and dealt with our queries efficiently. The room was small and basic with a boring view of a wall, but very clean, well-maintained, and had all the facilities we required. The WiFi was extremely intermittent and we had to make do by finding free WiFi in cafes and bars around the city, but this was not difficult and did not affect us hugely as we were very busy exploring. Overall, I think this is a great choice if you are looking for a central hotel on a budget, and it suited our purposes very well.

"Barcelona Balmes - Super value, perfect location"
A small hotel, perfectly located, near La Rambla and a brief walk to some major must visit Gaudi buildings. Rooms are small, but, adequate, since you won't be spending your time in them. We couldn't book breakfast when we booked our room, but, when we checked in, we were offered a promotional breakfast deal for 9 Euros per person for the week we stayed. Promotion, or no promotioin, breakfast at the Balmes is recommendable. The hotel staff were really great - helpful, friendly, efficient. One way we judge a room is how well the shower works. It worked beautifully.

"3 night break in Barcelona"
My 14-year old son and I had a great 3 days in Barcelona; we sometimes worry that we'll get the 'single parent room' when we book a hotel anywhere, ie. overlooking the dustbins etc. But our room was lovely, with a balcony overlooking the street. We were out for most of the day, but our room was nice enough to chill out in when we needed to. Free Wi-Fi worked well. Thoroughly recommend both Barcelona, and the hotel for a great mini-break.

The hotel ended up being a lot better than I expected when I booked our room. We were all really impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and the overall style of the hotel. It was very nicely decorated. I was also particularly satisfied with the concierge service. The staff were always happy to help me with plans, directions, advice, etc. I must have sought advice from the same man at LEAST four times and he was really patient and very, very helpful. We only took advantage of breakfast once. In my opinion, it was a little more pricey than most hotels, but the food was delicious and always warm and refreshed. I would recommend staying here, if you get the chance. It was worth the money. (And I'm saying that as a typical, broke college student, so you know it's true.)

"Dog friendly hotel, helpful staff"
Good location, hotel provided dog sitting staff for ten euros per hour when we had a function to attend one evening. The room was clean with mini bar fridge but sub standard wall insulation for pipe works - you can hear toilets flushing and showering etc in rooms above as the pipes ran down through the interior of guest rooms and not on the outside corridor walls as would be normal practice. Also some toilet smells came into the guest rooms because of the poor insulation of soil pipes. A bonus is the parking which the hotel has 20 spaces. But there is also secure public car park directly opposite the hotel for same charge of twenty four euros per day. This is a good 3 star hotel and would be even better if they fix their plumbing!
