    Very disappointed, booked a room with a sun terrace in January 2011 for a stay to celibrate my wifes 60th birthday, confirmation was recieved, however when we got there we were not given a room with a sun terrace, and told they had none left. Even though they had accepted the bookinig january and confirmed it back by e-mail.

    Short walk to Passeig de Gracia and a main Metro stop. Good location between Passeig de Gracia, Plaza Catalunya and Sagrada Familia. We walked almost everywhere; even all the way to the beach. There was so much to see along the way that it was painless, however it would have been very easy to hop on the Metro if we didn't want to walk.

    The hotel was in an excellent location in a pleasant area. The staff could not be friendly enough. We were late arriving so did not get theroom we booked and when we highlighted this they made the appropriate change and we got the nicest room in the hotel. large terrace and access to the spa area......there was also good access to the Camp Nou, which was our main reason for being in Barcelona this time.

    We really enjoyed our stay in the balmoral, and will use it again for our next rip to Barcelona

    Superb

    Mainly I liked the location (fantastic, close to touristic attractions, but also on the calm street, which allows good rest), very friendly hotel staff (I tried to pay for the bottle of water from minibar and even that was not possible - they have given it for free), all our needs addressed to the reception have been immediately satisfied - bags storage, city map and directions, taxi booking and so on, nise and clean rooms.

    The only possible area to improve is breakfast. It is good in general, but the selection could have been a bit better for such a hotel.

    Very good

    I liked the room itself and bathroom that was very nice. Also the cleanliness of the room, the hotel facilities. The location is good in the very center of Barcelona, but if you would like to be near the sea then it isn't the best choice.

    There was a little bit noisy at night because of the cars and also far from the beach.

    Superb

    We only stayed 2 days but would have been happy to stay longer. The room was very spacious. Toiletries and towels were replaced daily. Good air conditioning. In room services seemed well priced although we did have need of them. Simple but useful spa amenity was well maintained and was a good extra in this price bracket. We found all the hotel staff very helpful, honest and professional.

    Probably in need of a refurbishment in a few years time but currently quite satisfactory and well kept.

    The roof terrace, although we never used it! Rooms were clean, staff were friendly, location was very safe and quite

    Pillows were not comfortable, woke up with a creak in my neck most mornings. Bar closes at 10.30pm. Did not have an iron. Too far from the main areas, not much around hotel! I chose the hotel because I was told the the area around las ramblas was very nosiey and hectic at night, but I didnt find this the case at all, I found the night life very low key, and if visiting barcelona again I would definitely stay closer to las ramblas, as we ended up spending all our time around this area and so had to get the metro a lot, which can be a bit pricey if used a few times a day!

    Very good

    The holtel was clean and staff were friendly. Rooms were a good size. Nicely situated, only a short and cheap underground train journey to the main street Las Ramblas.

    No english speaking channels on the tv.

    Very good

    Barcelona has turned in to a very expensive city, and this without improving in quality. Even London is cheaper in many ways. This hotel had dropped the rates a lot, and with a heavliy reduced rate it was fair value for the money. Clean, ok rooms, and good service. At the original price it was not good value for money, which is very common for Barcelona but I guess the times are changing.

    The staff were extremely rude and unwelcoming and they tried to charge us twice for the room which we had already paid for and then they didnt even say sorry. We were also put in the worst room in the hotel with no windows and it was very noisy as you could hear the tube every two minutes. We booked months in advance and when we asked for a new room they said they had none available even though they did when we asked again from a different staff member. Good location though.

    The hotel was at the centre of the city close to many touristic hot spots . I like the place so much and strongly recommend it!

    Clean and comfortable room. Service was friendly. Location was good. Restaurants and bars in the area and a reasonable walk to the old town. Taxi from the old town back to the hotel at night was about 8 Euros.
