Totally decent and attractive hotel. Location was great as well as the price. The room was really small which would have been fine but I was surprised to find only a small twin bed that wasn't that comfortable. I would still stay here again
however. Staff, if not overly service oriented, was competent and helpful.
The Balmes hotel was in a super location as we had friends in the Eixample area. The staff were referred to by another guest as "keystone kops" as they did not seem to have a clear idea how to get things done and could care less if the hotel
guests were accommodated. They were aloof and generally unhelpful unless we insisted upon answers.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
dine on tapas at Contal on the rambla near the hotel
