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.

Dear guest. Thank you very much for your message. We would like to inform you that there are plenty of options for walking tours in Barcelona, some of them are free but you also can have a private guide, being part of a group or just for you. If you can be more specific about your idea of that walking tour we would be able to make any recommendation. Regards, Front Desk Hotel Balmes

"We were facing Mallorca street and if you had the windows open it could be noisier but we didn't and could not hear street traffic."
"There are street views but we settled for an interior room which we found very quiet."
"Deluxe room was beautiful and had its own garden and wee pool/ hot tub."
"Our room out the back in the garden was lovely and quiet."
"Ask fora room at the back, if traffic noise bothers you"
