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.

I stayed in Balmes hotel, Mallorca 216 in Barcelona for 3 nights and it was wonderful! The stuff was kind and helpful, the facilities and room very clean and a great breakfast. It's 20-25 minutes from Plaza Catalunya and Rambla Street, the metro is 7 minutes (combining between L3 and L6) I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!

The staff were great, very friendly and helpful. The room was lovely very pleasant. Breakfast was not anything special and it would have been nice if the breakfast was served at 6am for those with flight rather than at 7 .

The hotel was lovely, the service was excellent and the location was perfect: close to the centre, but not so close that it was noisy. The room was good, but if we had stayed for more than three days it may have been too dark. I think it might be a choice between a quiet room further back in the...

I only booked one night and it was not too expensive so I came with low expectations, but found a hotel that was much better than I expected, more so than hotels that cost 50% more. My room was an interior duplex with tons of space and very pleasant and looked recently updated. Staff were incredibly professional and friendly and...

The hotel exceeded our expectations in every respect. The staff were lovely, room was great and the breakfast was perfect. The location couldn't be better with bars and restaurants all around plus the best shopping street a stones throw away. Taxis are located close to the front door and it's only a 10-15 minute stroll to the centre. I can...

No complaints what so ever about the quality of service and staff. The room that I got was the apartment and it was fantastic. I got a bottle of wine from the manager on the first night of stay. They had wines service the first few days at the reception, I believe it was during the MWC week. The staff...

I travel to Barcelona quite often, and this time I chose to stay at the hotel Balmes since I saw it being rated as an excellent hotel.

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.
