I stayed in Balmes 12 days: first and last days i booked single room, the rest of my vacation I had studio room. Single room was absolutely terrible: it was more of a prison cell - 4*4 meters, with no plugs in except one at the top of the wardrobe but you have to climb up the wardrobe and switch off the tv. Airco was broken. Studio room had more space and even had a small kitchen in the corridor, some basic equipment and a tea pot. Nobody was cleaning my room for those 10 days, don't know if you are suppose to clean yourself if you book one studio. Plumbing is just ancient... Had to take either hot or cold showers. Same with friends who stayed in other rooms of this hotel. Staff pretend not to understand your problem and choose to ignore. Besides you need to pay and leave deposit for safety box, the receptionist didn't want to give me back my 10eu deposit because you need to bring back some paper not only the key. 15 minutes walk to the beach. What can I say: never again.
