"Amazing Stay."
The location was perfect to explore the beautiful city. It was walking distance from everything and a quick taxi ride to the airport. The room was small but very accommodating. The hotel staff was very helpful and polite. The breakfast was amazing. Would recommend every time while staying in Barcelona.

"Quirky hotel but great location"
Typical European hotel. Not family friendly, size wise. Awesome location within the city. Worth the price for that alone. Very clean. Never stayed in a hotel that doesn't have a printer for their business computer to print boarding passes? Most staff was helpful. Barcelona is incredible and staying here made it a little better.

"Restaurant"
I had breakfast in the restaurant on my last day and was very disappointed. I ordered 2 fried eggs well done and got undercooked eggs. The severs did not clear my plates and on three occasions (!) cleared the plates of guests who had already left rather than to clear the plates where I was seated and still eating. The bread and croissants tasted like they were a day old and the coffee/milk was so scalding hot I could not drink it fir about 10 minutes.

"Hotel Balmes, Barcelona"
This is a great hotel for its' price range. The location is excellent: right off the Passeig de Gracia in the L'Eixample, close to trams and subway and busses. This area of Barcelona is stately and quiet. Great shopping and 5 star restaurants are nearby, as is the Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera and Casa Battlo. The hotel offers a decent breakfast downstairs in its' Bauhaus inspired dining room. The rooms are basic but comfortable and the staff is responsive and friendly. The concierge is great; the dining room staff is outstanding. I would stay there again. Big perk: this hotel has a pool and a lovely courtyard. I thought I would use it more, but walking around Barcelona is intoxicating.

"Quiet, central location in Barcelona"
We had two rooms for two days and one for a third day. It was our first time in the Barcelona. We focused our visits, as many do, on Gaudi buildings and the Gothic district. So the location was super! Even access to City Tour buses and the Metro system was simple. There was an ample supply of extremely nearby quality dining options. The hotel's bar was generally empty, presumably the person manning the front desk also is the bar tender. We ate breakfasts at the hotel. they were fine but offered little variety from one day to the next. Newspapers in that room and at the front desk were available but only in Spanish and, I suppose, Catalan. WIFI and TV service were suitable.The pool was welcome, but small and heavily used by families. The hotel's decor was stylish in a simple, modern manner with some African art donning public areas.

"Business and Leisure in Barcelona"
I was booked into the Balmes through work, and had an extended stay with my husband after. I decided to stay at the same hotel and am glad I did. Hotel is fairly well located, if you like to walk, which wasn't a problem for us. Located within two blocks of Passeig Gracia, which was a straight shot to Las Ramblas, etc. Hotel staff all spoke excellent English, which was fantastic, and they were all very nice and accommodating. Georges at the front desk was super helpful. Our room had a terrace, which we loved, but didn't keep the door open too much as the neighborhood (all of Barcelona?) is pretty noisy. Room had a/c which was great and definitely needed, even in spring. Neighborhood seemed safe, and we were out pretty late a few nights. Overall, a great stay, I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is in a perfect location for visiting Barcelona. lots of nice restaurants,bars and shopping areas are 5 mins by walk. But the biggest drawback of this hotel is that they have the smallest beds i have ever seen!i can not even turned to other side when i was sleeping during my whole stay!room was superior supposedly but i didnt see any difference from standart room so dont spend your money on an upgrade! rooms were clean,hotel was nice and gnereal manager was very kind and he interested on our feedbacks personally,thanks for his efforts.if you are tall,chhose another hotel,if you dont care about bed size then it is a perfect place to stay.

The room was clean yet smelled like a sewer. After this was brought to their attention they promptly moved us. The condition of the hotel shows some signs of neglect. Almost all plumbing fixtures were falling off/apart. The toilet was not properly secured in both rooms. The faucet handle moved and was not located for proper function. And the walls were paper thin.Lot's of restuarants in the area and centrally located.

"Fair hotel with a great location"
It's a small hotel with not too much facilities, but with a great location in Barcelona. You are at a walking distance from Paseo de Gracia and on the same street of La Sagrada Familia Cathedral by Gaudi. Overall, it was a great experience because of the city, however if you are looking for complimentary services in hotel, you might feel disappointed. The first room that was given had the air condition broken, and during our stay in the second room the goods within minibar were never changed.

Service staff seemed super friendly, front desk staff not so cheery. The room felt stale and unused, could of done with a decent airing out and maybe some filtering on the AC. The public space seems to be where the most effort went. The jacuzzi is not hot and the pool is not heated although a pleasant space if you are just sitting by it.

"Good location but not the best"
Hotel was centrally located to main sights. Metro was a little bit of a hike. Room was not ideal for family as wife and I had to sleep in twin beds or a pull out couch. A few minor issues: maintenance done on property (including loud drilling) done in early morning and afternoon affected sleep and or nap; safe in room required deposit to operate; pool not heated; and wife had to get hair dryer from front desk. Main issue with hotel was taxi driver they hooked us up with to go to airport. The taxi driver (friend of hotel staff) showed up early and charged us for chatting with his friend at the hotel desk. Before we got in the cab, the taxi meter was at 9.20 euros (not including supplement for Sunday morning). Be wary of ordering a cab from front desk unless you are ok with this premium.

Room is very small. There was sound of renovation work since 9am and it disturbed my sleep. The wall of the room is also very thin. You can hear every single walking step at the corridor. The only highlight of the hotel is the location which is 5-8 mins walk to Paseig De Gracia.

"Average hotel in good location"
Check-in took a long time as there was a line up. There was a problem with the number of beds and the guest service agent was good in giving us an upgrade free of charge to correct it. The room itself (a family room) was alright - it consisted of two single beds and one pull-out sofa. The beds were not overly comfortable but alright. It would be great if the pool (small but looked nice) could have longer opening hours. It is unreasonable to open it late (at 11am) and close it early. Many people go out sightseeing during the day and get back in the evening. It is very inconvenient for someone who may have liked to go for a morning swim before heading out.
