The hotel is located in las ramblas,which is where you want to be if you are in Barcelona. It was our first trip after we had our first baby. We asked for a crib in the room. They provide it at no extra charge. It's not a big hotel,but rather boutique hotel.Nicely decorated rooms. The room isn't very spacious but you have everything you will need in it. For those many reviews I have read before deciding to disregard them and stay at this hotel ,that its very loud,shame on them ,because the windows they have installed are sound proof. We took the room with the view on las ramblas and to prove my point my baby never woke up by the noise of the street. As long ad the window is shut ,you will have no noise issues. The ramblas street is very entertaining ,if you stand in your balcony you will feel like you are in the middle of the action. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Most of the staff are not even native Spanish ,and their English is okay. As soon as we arrived they greeted us and the person at the help desk gave us a map and started pointing out the attractions and the places we might want to visit during our stay in Barcelona. Breakfast was okay ,don't expect much though,it's a bit expensive because there are very narrow items ,but we decided it was more convenient since we had our baby with us. The room is cleaned twice a day ,once in the morning after you leave for breakfast and another time in the afternoon ,and it's when they leave you a note card of tomorrows expected weather as well as chocolate. We were sent a complimentary bottle of wine same day of arrival. As for the bathroom it's all glass you can see through the glass door ,it didn't bother us ,because it was me and my husband in the room,but I'm sure it would bug us if we had been sharing a room with a friend rather than a spouse. The shower is great after a long day of walking around the streets of Barcelona ,it was very relaxing. Very comfortable and pleasant stay as an overall evaluation.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback about our hotel Bagués.

Yes, as you say the hotel is not a big property and that is what we wanted to make when we thought in this project. This is a boutique hotel where you will feel at home, at least thats what we are trying to do.

Regarding the noise from the street i totally agree with you, there isn't any noise from outside but i have to say we changed some stuff 8 months ago and we improved the soundproof system a lot.

I hope to see you again.

Merry Chrismas and happy new year!!

This has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and believe me we have stayed in our fair share. Great location right in the middle of La Ramblas. We had a side street room but still plenty to look at, if out on your balcony. Yes there is a building directly opposite so view not great but hilarious for people watching. Did not hear any noise from the street below at night and felt very safe walking around day and night. the rooms are a little dark but very quirky and exceptionally clean which is the main thing. Definately visit the food market very near by the hotel. Down by the harbour is lovely, also the beach. If you want to see more of the city and dont want to walk everywhere, then get on an open top bus and view the sites. Will definately will go back.

Dear Guest,

First of all thank you very much for your compliment considering us one of the best hotels you have ever been.

This is very important for us beacuse we can say the hotel Bagués do not fit to everyone. We have got 31 rooms and the service is totally different from a bigger hotel. We take care a bout every single detail and every single guest.

I believe that you didn´t taste the restaurant "El Regulador" something what will make your experience unforgettable .

It would be great to have you with us very soon.

Warm regards,

Felipe Turell

Must take a room facing the Ramblas- those are cheerful and feel more voluminous . The other rooms face a building on the side street which is close - it creates a vis a vis and affects the view. Despite the proximity of the Ramblas, these rooms can be depressing .
The staff is very friendly and helpful
In its attempt to be funky this Hotel ends up making the rooms too dark - the furniture colour , the over-all colour utilisation etc end up with that effect
Over-all a good Hotel

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your words about our staff and overall for posting this good feedback about hotel Bagués.

If you come again to Barcelona just let me know and i will allocate you in one of the brightest rooms we got by the way i don't think the rest of the rooms are specially dark.

Many guests are asking for the rooms facing the church, they really feel being in the old gotic area of Barcelona.

Thank you very much and best regards,

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon In September this year, only 3 nights as we left our children with relatives!! it is a great location on La Rambla and max 5 minute walk from Placa De Catalunya where the Aerobus drops you off from the Airport. The hotel is beautifully decorated and we had a superior room facing the church with a tiny balcony which you can stand out on and watch the comings and goings, without quite so much noise, however sound proofing is excellent! The staff are excellent and the room was incredibly clean, with the staff coming in the evening to turn down the beds and a fresh rose in a vase everyday. We were even given a complimentary bottle of red wine in our room on our first evening. we would have liked to have had tea and coffee making facilities available in our room though, I bought my travel kettle and supplies but forgot to bring the cups, so never used. The complimentary tolietries are excellent and the bath and shower were really great, even had a self closing toilet seat, on the downside is the glass door into the bathroom, i would prefer a little bit more privacy, frosted door would have been better!!! We didn't sample the breakfast or restaurant in the evening as wanted to eat our breakfast on the go and eat in the restaurants local to the sites we were visiting. Due to the location of the hotel we were able to walk everywhere to all the sites but it is still alot of walking!!! The roof top terrace is a wonderful bonus and particularly lovely at night time! I would definitely stay in this hotel again and would highly recommend it!

Room Tip: A room on the side facing the church is better!

Went for 3 days over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend with my girlfriend.

Located in the heart of Las Ramblas, this hotel was an excellent find whilst on special offer during soft opening.

The room was excellent, very modern and trendy with all the mod-cons. Excellent bathroom, with a nice deep bath, perfect after a long day sightseeing!

Very friendly staff, with a half bottle of red on arrival.

The hotel had a roof top area which we didnt get chance to use, with a small 'dip' pool.

Would definatley recommend this hotel!
