    Historical Traveler Reviews Balmes Hotel Barcelona

    We loved Balmes Hotel

    from

    My husband and I stayed at the hotel Balmes in Barcelona last September. We highly recommend the hotel, the location is great (near Las Ramblas and walking distance from most attractions), the staff is very kind, the breakfast buffet is very good also. The rooms are very nice! They gave us a room in the first floor with a little own terrace. Again, I highly reccommend this hotel.

    TOP VALUE BALMES

    from

    Excellent hotel, with friendly staff and central to most attractions - please ignore the several negative rebiews on this site - I think the hotel would have good legal grounds for complaint. Andrew, Clare and Jake, Burbage, Leics

    Pool is fab

    from

    Location was excellent and having the pool was great. The bar was a bit scary - you wouldn't hang out there. Our room looked out on an air shaft - you couldn't see the sky so I would advise others to specify a room looking out on something - preferably the pool. Staff were fine - not too friendly though. All in all, fine for the price.

    Fine Place, Great Pool, Small Rooms, Good Deal

    from

    My three nights were fine. Small room, yes, and on an airshaft, but that didn't bother me as much as the pool (great extra at this price) pleased me. Very convenient location to Ramblas. And neighborhood Gay bars right around the corner.

    Nice, friendly hotel

    from

    I've just returned from Barcelona and thought this was a very nice hotel. The rooms we have were nice and clean, with one of them facing onto the street and one onto the little garden and swimming pool at the back. Although our contact with the staff was limited, we always found them helpful. Good location, about 5-10 minutes walk to a metro station and a great bar just down Calle De Mallorca

    Great Location

    from

    This hotel is located in the very centre of the city, and it is near a metro station. If you decide to make a reservation at this hotel you must insist on a duplex room, these rooms cost the same as all the other doubles but are far superior, they have a living area downstairs with the bedroom located on the upper level. The bar is small and expensive, and the staff are not the most helpful. I would say there are far more superior hotels in this city that would cost much the same.

    Mediocre hotel, great locatin.

    from

    Stayed here for two nights in June 2003. It is a very plain, mediocre hotel, but if you can't find something else in the area, it is in a great location. Poorly decorated rooms, tiny bathrooms, and expensive for the amenities. I'd shop around before I stayed here -- in fact we would not stay here again. Spend a little more and get something nicer.

    Great stay in barcelona

    from

    we sent a few days in the Balmes hotel in Barcelona We injoyed our stay very much. The hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Rambles and Paseig Gracia . Contrary to other reviews we found the staff to be extremely helpfull and friendly . The rooms we took were on the sixth floor facing the back , very quite , well lit . spacious . with a view to the swimming pool . our stay was during a heat wave in europe , we greatly enjoyed cooling down in the swimming pool . All in all a nice hotel well worth the money

    Muy malo

    from

    All around lame experience. The double room was very small. The staff were rude and unpleasant. The walls were paper thin enababling us hear every creak.

    A very medium experience

    from

    Halloo Everybody,this wasn´t the place we expected. We had booked a double room and what we´ve got was an extremley hot and dark room at the fifth floor (the aircondition wasn´t working) with a terrible outlook at the backside of another building. All the rooms I saw were pretty dark without a nice view. I felt most of the time that the staff wasn´t too friendly and not helpful at all. I definitely can´t recommend this hotel. There are a lot of choices better than this in Barcelona. You pay maybe 100-200 Euros more. But believeme you will not regret it to stay away from this place.C.Galli

I naturally got lost trying to find the train, not realizing one had to take a bus to terminal T2B to pick it up. I did use the kiosk to get a ducat to Place de Catalunya [4.10E] but that was the last of my brilliance for the travel portion of the day.

    it was out of there. When I was done with the fish wrangle, I poached it with

    Well Ryanair did not let us down. Flight was delayed 1 hour. Had a blew with one taxi driver at the Barcelona airport, then scored an honest one. Did a loop via a seedy district before finding ourselves at the Andante hotel. I went out for a walk and checked out the sights. Slice of pizza, some fresh cut fruit and some nibbles. Got a knock back on the bottle of wine from the guy in ...

    Was not entirely sure what to expect of Spain but Barcelona has exceeded all my expectations. The city is full of culture and art, old and new. The people are all amazing and friendly too. Today a group of us headed into these awesome food markets which were full of fresh fruit, vege, live seafood, meats and chocolate it was so colourful and fun! We had yummy fresh fruit juices for just €1. Next we headed to the coast part of ...
