Lovely hotel

Posted 28-Jul-2016
Could have been a bit closer to ramblas as app 30 min walk Restaurants close by Hotel lovely and staff very helpful Downside is pool only has 8 sun beds, managed one day out of 5 to relax by pool one afternoon. Bar area around pool a lovely place to chill day or evening The rooms are lacking in mirrors, only one in bathroom and no mirror on dressing table area or a full length one which was disappointing as the hotel interior itself is full of mirrors, not helpful when getting ready in the evening Overall I would recommend

Erg leuk, oase midden in het centrum

Posted 24-Jul-2016
Voel je een prinses, bagage wordt direct uit auto aangepakt. Auto wordt door personeel weggereden. Dan kan je direct naar kamer met airco. Zwemspullen pakken en naar de binnentuin om af te koelen onder het genot van een drankje! Kortom een fijn hotel midden in de stad met zeer behulpzaam personeel! Een echte aanrader!!

hôtel parfait pour un séjour à Barcelone

Posted 17-Jul-2016
Pros: l'emplacement parfait et l'accueil du personnel
Cons: le coin piscine très petits avec peu de transats
Location: beaucoup de bars et restaurants pour tous les gouts , hôtel seulement à 10 min de la Rambla ,
Nous avons passés un excellent séjour dans cet hôtel , l'accueil est parfait , le personnel est toujours à l'écoute souriant et serviable , la chambre est spacieuse , très confortable , et bien entretenue . L'espace piscine est agréable mais un peu petit avec peu de transats par rapport à la taille de l'hôtel . L'hôtel est parfaitement placé , dans un quartier animé avec beaucoup de restaurants et bars à seulement 10min de la place Catalunya . Je recommande vivement cet hôtel .

Zentral gelegenes Business Hotel

Posted 17-Jul-2016
Pros: die Lage
Cons: den Schallschutz
Das Hotel liegt sehr zentral. Der Service ist eher desinteressiert und unpersönlich. Ich war das erste mal 1996 in diesem Hotel, mich hat aber niemand gefragt, ob ich es kenne. Beim Bezahlen hat mich auch niemand gefragt, ob es mir gefallen hat. Ich hatte ein Zimmer offen zu dem kleinen Pool und Veranstaltungsräumen. Da darf man gerne morgens um 07.00 Uhr das erste Telefonat mithören. Generell ist das Hotel eher hellhörig. Fazit: Preis/Leistung ist aufgrund der Sauberkeit des Zimmers und der Lage für Barcelona ok. Man darf es halt nicht mit D vergleichen

gutes und sogar sehr ruhiges Hotel im Stadtzentrum

Posted 17-Jul-2016
Pros: Freundlichkeit des Personals und die Zimmerausstattung
Location: fussläufig sind die Ramblas, das Casa Batllo und das Casa Mila (Gaudi) gut erreichbar.
Das Hotel liegt von den nächsten Metrostationen leider ca.10 - 15 Fussminuten entfernt. Das Haus ist in sehr gutem Zustand und auf modernem Niveau. Die Zimmer sind modern ausgestattet und sehr gut schallgeschützt. Roomservice und Freudlichkeit entsprechen dem 4 Sterne Status. Das Rezeptionspersonal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und immer ansprechbar. Ein Haus, das man gerne weiter empfiehlt.

Beautiful hotel, ideal location

Posted 10-Jul-2016
Had a great couple of days at Hotel Balmes, close enough to the metro to make getting around easy and plenty of lovely restaurants nearby. Hotel was beautiful and the rooms were very comfortable.

Not far from la Rambla. Good location.

Posted 01-Jul-2016
The place of the hotel is very good. The staff is nice. The little chocolate every day on the bed was a nice gesture. There's a lot of shops and Restaurants around. 15 minutes far from la rambla by walk. Only my room was a bit small so for the price I would've preferred to have more space.

Hotel Balmes

Posted 23-Jun-2016
Pros: It's cleanliness and that it is well maintained.
Cons: I would recommend installing grab bars in the shower/tub. The surfaces are very smooth and you could easily lose your footing when stepping into it.
Location: Right next door to the hotel is a tapas bar/restaurant, Socar 2, very handy and good prices. Also a 24hr. convenience market almost next door
The Hotel Balmes is just what it bills itself as, a clean, modern, contemporary hotel, in a good location, with modern facilities, nothing more, nothing less. I was in a single room which was a bit tight but I was comfortable The bed was very comfortable. Mostly I was out exploring the city, not spending a lot of time in the room. This is not an "old world charm" hotel but it serves very well for an attractive, clean,comfortable, safe place to stay in the city. I have the impression that it caters to the business traveler who is in for a short stay. I did not take advantage of the solarium and pool so I can't comment about those features. The staff were very helpful with my questions.

Great hotel for the Price

Posted 23-Jun-2016
Cons: Room Doors need to be updated.
Location: Everything is near the location.
Room was good bathroom was good. Great pool area. Awesome bathrobes. Great Staff. The only down side is the room doors are not sound proof. You can hear everything that is going on in the hallways. Great location more towards the north end and high end of town. So less foot traffic but its still an easy walk away from the Main strip.
