Hostal Balmes Centro is very basic hostel in Barcelona. Pros: central location, free coffee in the morning, bathroom in the room.. Cons: basic small room, uncomfortable bed, overpriced. We expected it to be better.

Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognisable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end
international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the
glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best
