Great stay at the bales good location to shops and places of interest.reception team very helpful with maps locations to visit. Good location for many good restaurants and bars.Good variety at breakfast and room clean and comfortable. Nice compact and private pool area but too cold for january
After comparing some booking sites we decided to book two nights directly on the hotel's site. Got breakfast included for free that way. We had some difficulty finding the hotel because of it's positioning in between apartment and office buildings and on a street with fast driving, heavy trafic. With the kind help of a member of staff we managed to carefully squeeze our Volvo S90 in the rather small parking underneath the hotel. Just a tip: for those who have a bigger car, there is a public parking garage right opposite the Balmes hotel and it's probably a lot easier to park there.Reception was easy, friendly and efficient. Hotel lobby area has a permanent display of African art. (Superior)room is on the small side, but clean with a well equiped bathroom and a large and comfortable double bed. A complimentary bottle of red wine awaited us when entering the room. Also in the room: an impressive glass cabinet with two African masks. Most unusual and a nice touch.Breakfast buffet with a good selection of breads, meats and cheeses and plenty of fresh fruits. Eggs and bacon are made to order (other dishes at a surcharge) and we found the service there extremely friendly and helpful.The Balmes is conveniently located close to the Diagonal metro station and the Rambla Catalunya. Nice place to stay!
Very slick modern hotel with an inviting feel and friendly staff who were most accommodating to our needs on this trip. The travel agent who booked the accommodation booked the wrong rooms and the hotel staff quickly changed it to what it should have been - excellent.
Hotel Balmes is a well located and pleasant hotel in the centre of Barcelona. The staff is very friendly and prices are quite reasonable. It has free WiFi, which works very well. I recommend this hotel.
We stayed for two night at the end of our trip with our two teenagers and this had to be the most uncomfortable and noisy hotel we have ever stayed in any country. The modern decor and friendly staff could not make up for the tiny space provided in what was called a family suite. It was one very tight room that you could barely fit along two sides of the bed with a narrow staircase up to a tiny loft with another bed. We had a reasonable amount of luggage for four people after a two week trip in two countries. The staff asked if they could store our luggage because they did not think it could fit in the room. That is utterly ridiculous. Besides the small room, it was almost impossible to get the heater to turn off and it was warm for our liking. Lastly, the walls were so thin or the vent space was not insulated enough that the neighboring room noise blasted us all night long for two nights. We never really slept the whole stay. The neighbors had to have heard us when we were awake and they chose to carry on all night knowing they were disturbing other guests. Just a disappointing end to our long trip.
