Very smart and modern hotel with art pieces displayed throughout. Stayed here for 4 nights and we have no complaints at all. Clean and bright rooms with enough room for a couple of medium sized cases. Good location and only a short walk to the city centre. Plenty of places to eat and drink just a stones throw away. We...

Stayed at Hotel Balmes as my usual hotel was fully booked. Had an apartment for 3 days and it was amazing, with a great terrace and living areas. Will be asking for the same room again when I visit Barcelona again this year. The area in Barcelona was convenient and quiet at night which was peaceful

The location is convenient to major tourist attractions and an easy ride from the airport by Metro (L9 to Collblanc and L5 to DIagonal). I arrived at noon but check-in was not until 2 so I left my luggage and had a nice lunch at Cerveseria Catalana on Mallorca at Catalunya. My luggage was in my room when I returned....

Our room was not that large, but it's enough and clean. We enjoyed the garden & minipool. Bed & shower excellent. Breakfast also very good (we had also breakfast outside, because pretty expensive, but ok). The hotel personal was very friendly. We can only warmly recommend this hotel.

Really enjoyed our stay at Balmes. The room was comfortable and the location was perfect. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would have liked a kettle in the room but this was provided within minutes of asking, nothing was too much trouble.

We selected Hotel Balmes as the location was near our previous Derby hotel, and we needed an easy place to store our luggage during a weekend outside of Barcelona.

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.
