 "Very clean and modern throughout."
Balmes Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of many of the main attractions with the metro nearby for any that are a little further away. We had a room with a terrace which was nice to come back to and sit out on after a long tiring day. We had booked a double room but because we'd upgraded on arrival to the room with a terrace this only had twin beds, I pointed this out to the receptionist who had showed us to our room and by the next day the beds had been put together and made up as a double for us. My only critiscism is that one night I seemed to be able to hear everything going on through the walls, including people walking about and toilets flushing, it was very noisy. However I wasn't disturbed by this level of noise on any other night. I would recommend this hotel.
