Stayed weekend of 17th-19th Feb for birthday weekend. Great Location, amazing staff and a lovely room. Only thing i could ask for would be tea/coffee facilities in the room but apart from that amazing!!!
We chose this hotel based on all the good reviews and it didn't disappoint us. The location was the main reason we chose this hotel. Within walking distance to Casa Batllo and Casa Mila, 1 block away from the famous tapas place Cerveceria Catalana. The room was very spacious and clean. Water pressure was very strong when we took showers. All these plus the great service cost us less than 80euro per night. Will definitely stay there if I visit Barcelona againThe only downside was that the free wifi only allowed 1 device at a time so we had to take turn to use it
A very nice hotel We stayed in an apartment but experienced hotel service; every daynew towels, bed maae up, dishes done, etc. Location is also very nice. Lots of restaurants in the neighborhood. 10 minutes walk to shopping area and Casa Battle.
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would certainly return! Firstly, the members of staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, our room was incredibly clean and everything was of a high standard. We had a safe in the room and we were able to store our luggage after we checked out (we also had an early check in). We can't fault this hotel!
The thing that stands out to me most at the Balmes is the friendly, helpful approach of the staff. I had to correspond with them ahead of our trip to arrange a birthday surprise which was done with good grace and seamlessly organised. Each member of the staff team on reception each day took time to ask about our plans for the day and were keen to offer suggestions and advice where needed. We ate breakfast in the hotel one of the days, and Ali, our server was great at delivering the cake (said birthday surprise) and making an occasion to remember for us. As for accommodation, the general ambience of the hotel is classic/modern. We stayed in single rooms which were compact yet pleasant. There can be quite a lot of traffic noise from the street, but Barcelona is a busy and populous city so please expect it. The bathrooms were really nice, and slippers and bathrobes are supplied, along with decent toiletries. The location is ideal for Gaudi's architecture- much of which is within walking distance. Great shops nearby too, especially if you like designer gear. There are a couple of nice bars and cafes nearby; including the simple but pleasant Wakka bar and Creps cafe on the corner. You can easily travel further afield from Diagonal subway, around 15 mins walk. The hotel bar is small, and quiet. There is also a gym and a small pool outside on a shady terrace although of course it was too cold for us to swim in January.
