Stayed at the Hotel Balmes for four nights and enjoyed a quiet room on an inner atrium with good amenities -- until our final night there. That evening a group of what sounded like five or six drunken English-speaking people returned to their room directly above ours and proceeded to have a very loud party with their window open. Probably...

Noise and vibration of the metro in the room!!!! Impossible to sleep. The reception couldn't care less when you complain. Only for €400 per night. Don't go they pretend to be a four-star hotel they are far from that!!!!!

Everything was superb with our stay in this hotel. Staff were excellent which made such a difference to our stay in lovely Barcelona. The customer service is to a high standard which is hard to find these days. The hotel is very clean and has all those little luxuries. Hoping to return to this hotel some day.

Staff are most helpful. Good location near la rambla, casa batllo is within 10 minutes walk. Room is clean, great shower. Light sleepers - Ask for a room at the back as room facing the road can get a bit noisy from the traffic.

Staying in Eixample

Neighbourhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognised architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
