Very clean room, towels regularly changed. Hairdryer, shampoo and soap provided, so you don't need to take these with you. Lift worked. Staff friendly once you make the effort and start speaking to them. Always something to eat in restaurant with a different selection of food available, the staff were attentive but not overbearing. All staff were on hand for...

Originally requested a twin apartment and somehow ended up witha double which was small and smelled like garlic. However, the next morning we were moved to a twin which was much cleaner (although did not meet my standards, it was acceptable). The apartment was only a studio so unsurprisingly was small, but was sufficient for our stay. The kitchen area...

The GHT Balmes Hotel was celebrating it's 60th anniversary during our stay, which indicates it is not a modern state of the art hotel - it is however staffed by the nicest, friendliest and most helpful staff we have ever come across in many years of travelling.The room initially allocated to us (123) was directly above the beer cellar and...

Just returned from a 10 night stay at Balmes Hotel. Hotel had a good vibe and from reception to dining staff it had a 'family' feeling. We were able to join the hotels 60th birthday, where celebrations took place and staff and guests who have been going for many years were honoured. Hotel was spotless and maids excellent.

The hotel is very clean and cosy, the stagg ate always pleasant, with a small pool but plenty of room to sunbathe around the pool. The food is good, but it would be nicer to not have to pay for drinks with lunch and dinner as the prices can start to build up and the food can be quite salty....

The sleeping was awful. We did not sleep, because the walls are paper, we heard everything what the neighbours were told. When the neighbours flushed down the toilette its like a water fall's voice. :-(

A comfortable hotel, awarded the FAMILY TOURISM certificate and ISO 9001. It is a family-friendly hotel, regularly modernized, with a large garden with swings for the children and swimming pools for both adults and children, plus a hydro-massage pool, to make your holiday a truly memorable experience.Besides rooms, the hotel has studios and apartments that can be reserved with "self catering" or daily cleaning and breakfast buffet or half board, ideal for families with children. Hotel Balmes is the ideal spot for a great holiday with your partner, family or friends. It is situated in the quiet, residential area of Calella, close to the beach, the shopping district and the train station. It is very easy to reach from the motorway. At Hotel Balmes all meals are buffet-style and during the summer season (June to September) we offer an entertainment programme for children and adults, as well as opportunities to take part in free activities provided on Calella’s beach, such as kayaking, salsa, trips to the lighthouse, various sports, and so on. The hotel’s location in the town makes it a very appealing sport for participants of the Costa de Barcelona-Maresme Half Challenge and Challenge triathlons, as it is very close to the starting line, the change-over points, the finishing line and the site of the pasta party and the award ceremony. Hotel Balmes accepts dogs (up to 10 kg in weight) at a moderate cost. Hotel Balmes, the perfect hotel for your family holiday! ... more   less
