Fabulous 8.6 From 120 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Everything was great about staying at hotel Balkonis. Right from Checkin through to checkout. We couldn’t have been look after better or made more welcome.

Very good 8.0
We were checked in by Marianna who was very friendly and helpful, gave us some amazing personal recommendations and advice about what to pay to see, all of which we followed. Room was very clean and had more than enough space for 2. It was very noisy however as we overlooked an internal terrace. Our hot water did not work from the second night but staff were very helpful in providing us with a key to another room to use the facilities there and also refunded 15% per night as a good gesture will. Excellent location for exploring Barcelona, we walked most places but there is a subway station meters away. Also very easy to find off the airport bus.

Lovely place to explore the city
This is a lovely place to stay at in Barcelona to explore the city. It's located centrally, very convenient to get from and to the airport on the Areobus and to catch the metro to sights. It's about 15 min walking to Placa Espaniya. There's a bakery accross from it to get your morning coffee and breakfast. All the staff we met were extremely helpful and polite. We arrived later in the evening and the only room available was one on the first floor facing the main street. Unfortunately it seems the isolation is not so good so it was very noisy at night. They managed to get us another room for the rest of the stay which was also facing the main street but on a further floor up. This time together with some earplugs I managed to get some sleep :) Unless you possess the superpower that my partner has to fall asleep anywhere and with any loud noise, I'd recommond you ask for a room that is not facing the main street if possible. Alternatively, if the hotel can improve the windows in those rooms that could also be helpful. I recommend the hotel and would stay here again.

Good 6.0
Tricked into a poor experience!!!!
The room was practically windowless as the light well upon which my room's only window was overlooking was grim and unclean so I did not dare open it with the result that the room was stuffy and not ventilated AT ALL!! The room was small, but efficiently furnished with new IKEA furniture in good condition. The bathroom was great with bathtub and strong hot water in the shower. But the worse was that every day I get a visitor, a small COCKROACH. I killed 3 and missed he forth. The hotel front desk people were very nice but nothing was done to solve this problem. They were fully booked and did not attempt to change my room. I was busy all week working long hours so I did not have time to move to another hotel. Location was great with Metro station, market and restaurants at 2 minutes walk away. Another problem with the room was the noise.... with thin gypsum board walls just at the back of the reception area, I could not sleep for several nights hearing all voices of arriving and leaving guests!! It is a shame that I cannot recommend this hotel although I loved the location and if professionally sprayed with insecticide and having a front room, well ventilated and with real walls, I would have considered staying there again. Defintely overpriced for the quality I sayed in for an average of 80 Euros a night!!!!!

Perfect for First time travellers in Barcelona!
Lovely room, amazing and friendly staff, only a short walk from the city centre and all the main attractions. Sheets were changed daily and the room was clean. It was a little difficult to find the place however they were updating the door buzzer during our stay. Got to experience both the city life for the locals and the tourists. A Perfect Place for First time travellers in Barcelona!
