Hôtel Balmes 4*
Ce que nos clients disent
Excellent wifi in well-appointed, if not large, rooms. Staff exceptionally helpful. Many good, but not fancy restaurants in walking distance. Nice private patio adjoining room. Room nicely furnished with good working desk.
Perfect location a few hundred yards from Placa de Catalunya. Rooms are big, clean and modern. All members of staff were friendly and polite. The swimming pool and garden area is a real bonus. All in all a great place for a Barcelona city break.
I have rated only four stars not because there was anything (not a single thing) to complain about, but because there was nothing really to sing the praises about. Breakfast was sufficient to get a coeliac full, without having anything hot (except coffee). The staff were polite, but not bending backwards to smile or make eye contact etc.
I think we'd stay there again, but I feel no brand loyalty to this hotel.
Love Barcelona and the Balmes Hotel. Rooms have a great design and always kept clean. Staff were very friendly and I loved the pool just to relax for an hour. will be going back for sure.
