      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

      Epiphany is the celebration of the Magi coming to worship the newly born
      Christ. In Spain (and I think Italy) it is pretty much a second Christmas.
      Celebrations in Barcelona went until very early hours of the morning. Our hotel
      (Hotel Soho) even gave us chocolates in our rooms for it.

      ... amazing buildings than would exist in the whole of Australia, cable cars that span over the harbour, glass hotels atop the peak and a telecommunications tower that is a work of art. All the excess that seems inherent in the Spanish DNA is on dazzling display in this amazingly lively place. Wow!!!

      Later on i went back to the hotel to check up on Rudi and how he was feeling and if the blisters had gone down. He was felling a bit better and both of us were hungry so off we went to find a place to eat.

      We decided to go all the way to the beach and found ...

      ... Of course, I couldn't. My most sincere apologies, stranger.

      Our group migrated to another beach bar, so we followed behind. Eventually she stopped me, gave me a hug, and told me she loved me. I started to laugh at how emotional she was being and told her to start having fun. I don't know what happened, but she ran off, so I spun around and started to look for my friends. Nowhere.

      I started to search through giant crowds of people searching for ...
