Negative Reviews

The Noise Level in the Rooms is Very High

Some guests have reported poor sleep quality due to the noise level in the rooms and around the hotel. The cleaning staff starts making their rounds very early in the morning and seem oblivious to sleeping guests. Also reported was hearing people walking in the hallways and on the street outside, hearing lots of noise from other guest rooms and hearing water running through the pipes.

Guest Rooms are not as They Appear Online

The guests rooms appear larger online than they actually are and they don’t seem to have been refurbished recently as stated. Some guests also reported was excessive heat and malfunctioning air conditioning units, dated décor, stained sheets and towels, blocked drains, mould in bathrooms and weird smells.

There is a Lack of Customer Service at Balmes

Some staff members at this hotel are rude and uncaring. Some guests have reported being charged for things they did not use and others reported that the cleaning staff just barges into guest rooms without knocking first. Some guests have also said that when they approached management about issues, nothing was done to correct the problem.
