"Tents are not allowed madam...and is that erm...." "a Trangia" I replied randomly hoping its Swedish origination might help in some way. "Yes" the Danish security lady replied..."stoves are not allowed on the flight"... How had I overlooked this? In a desperate bid to make the 15 kilos I'd off loaded the tent and stove into my hand baggage ... "Do …

... hanging down, some inside cases. There were chunks that were vacuum sealed in bags and for sale for $300 or more - for a 2 pound piece!

The dried fruit section looked amazing. all the colors were so intense and looked so fresh. They would give samples as you walked by to entice you to buy. We stopped by a fresh fruit stand and saw a new kind of Mango that we had never seen before. So we bought one and I had the lady cut it up. it was ...

... Ken, who does not care to be near the edge of tall buildings, didn't fully appreciate the views! The rooftop had 30 towers, many of which were chimneys, all in very different and distinct designs. As we were heading down from the roof, we learned to never follow Asian tourists down a dark stairwell...it is bound to lead to a dead end! The attic was my favorite with all of the archways. Also in the attic was a display ...

After a seemingly endless flight from the less than lovely Neward airport in New Jersey to Porto, Portugal, one and half hour sit waiting for our flight to Barcelona, we finally got here, jet-lagged.

We took a bus into the heart of this beautiful city and walked to the apartment manager's office to pay up and get our keys for our new home away from home. We arrived on the first day of the biggest ...

After the tour, we explored the Parc de la Ciutadella, which is filled with gorgeous gardens, fountains and sculptures.

A solo traveler who was on the same tour as us joined us and we headed for some drinks and tapas.

We had the chance to witness some traditional Catalonian ...

    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
