“Surely the best hotel on La Rambla”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

The location is absolutely unbeatable for tourists. Super service with a young crew who gave great restaurant recommendations as per our wishes. Breakfast buffet also high quality. Design is modern and stylish, rooms perfectly soundproof, just a bit on the small side, let's say cosy. Amenities were also great. We loved every bit.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for another good review.

Yes, i don't know if we are the best hotel in Las Ramblas but i can assure we are fighting to achieve that target.

We have opened just 16 months ago and we are already rated as one of the best hotels in Barcelona by the tripadvisor members.
The tripadvisor hotel list measures a quality-price ratio so we are being compared with every single accomodation based in Barcelona.

Do not hesitate to contact me directly if you come back to our hotel in order to arrange whatever you might need.

Best regards,

Felipe Turell

Highly recommended. Had a great stay for 4 nights with Hotel Bagues. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect. Great experience staying on the La Rambla without actually having to put up with any noise. The soundproof system for the rooms is indeed world class. Breakfast was well executed and tasty. Variety could be an issue if one stays for a long period (but this is the same problem with all other hotels).

Will definitely return to the Hotel Bagues when back in Barcelona!

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the La Rambla for the full experience

Small and cosy hotel in the middle of La Rambla. We stayed in Bagues for 4 nights during our stay in Barcelona. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I was impressed the minute I arrived at its doorstep. The doorman and the reception officer came to our cab to help us with our luggage. The staff who served us breakfast on the first day remembered our order on subsequent days.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and well kept. The sound proof system is excellent.
Security is rather good. I felt safe in the hotel except for an ocassion when a strange man came into the hotel and approached my husband and I who were having our welcome drink at restaurant. He flashed a card with some spanish words and walked off quickly.

The smart car that came with the christmas package was a great deal. Getting around in the city with the smart car was a breeze. I was also given a christmas shopping card that gave discounts or free gifts(with purchase) at certain stores. I received a free coin purse at Loewe!

I will definitely choose to stay at Bagues should I return to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Rooms facing La Rambla street have a great view of the area. Don't worry about the noise. Sound...

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to write your opinion. We think the reviews are very helpful for the clients who are looking for a hotel.

The only matter which make me feel worried is the man who was inside the restaurant, we got a very modern security camara system and have always three members of the staff (doorman, porter and receptionist) taking care of who is getting through the entrance.

In any case I was not informed about that but next time do not hesitate to contact me directly in order to fix the problem and figure out what happened.

since we opened the hotel we have not had any problem inside of the building and as you can read in other reviews the hotel Bagués is a very safe hotel and everyone who has been here felt this security.

By the other hand i would also like to say thank you very much for your words about the hotel staff, all of them are happy to read it and know how they work is being appreciated.

Best regards and i hope to see you again,

Felipe Turell

Hotel Bagues is in an excellent location on La Rambla. The staff is very friendly and service oriented. The hotel is walking distance to anything in El Gotic and the main streets with shopping, Passig de Gracia, etc. Hotel was clean and housekeeping did an excellent job daily. We didn't eat at the hotel so can't speak to the food.

I opt'd for a top floor 'suite' with the deck and private jacuzzi tub. I thought this would be perfect after a day of walking and exploring. My particular suite, room 603, was not much bigger that a regular hotel room. There was an extra seating/lounge area but the TV was mounted right over it so you really couldn't lounge to watch TV. The space seemed useless. The jacuzzi tub was broken and they couldn't fix it during my 5 day stay. This rendered the top floor deck/jacuzzi tub useless. To me this left me in just a regular room at the suite rate. The manager gave me 20% off my bill and a free breakfast, after negotiating up from his original 10% offer. I still left mildly disappointed as I feel I shouldn't have paid more than a regular room rate.

The room was cold upon arrival and took a few hours to heat up. After a long trip we took a nap under the blankets with our coats on. We thought the heat was broken but it was just a very low air flow out of the vent. I recommend they get a head start on heating the room before they check people into it.

A couple other notes, the bathroom door is glass and transparent. You can see anyone in there doing any bathroom business. We draped the cheetah print blanket over the door and clipped it to the door frame with a couple hangers. You can hear street noise. If you are a light sleeper this could be an issue. You will hear the drunk folks yelling down La Rambla until about 3am.

I wouldn't return based on my personal experience, plus I'd want to try one of the other nice places I saw embedded in El Gotic, but I wouldn't recommend you not try Hotel Bagues.

Dear Guest,

Fist of all thank you very much for choosing the hotel Bagués.

We are very happy for the comments about the service and the staff, we are working very hard to reach the excellence of service.

About the complains i have to say we couldn't fix the jacuzzi because the piece took more than 5 days to get the hotel. As we were fully booked and we couldn't sort out the problem we offer you a 20% of discount and free breakfast which was exactly the same rate we were selling our standard rooms. The gap between both rooms is not always the same.

By the way i am very sorry of that and i would like to offer you the possibility to contact me directly in order to take personally care of your next stay.

Warm regards,

Felipe Turell

This hotel was the very best we have ever experienced in Barcelona and we also can say, among all the other 8 we stayed during our recent two-week trip by Spain.

Even with our great expectations, it was successfull in exceed it with great and polite attention, cleanliness, high class amenities and facilities as well as its unbeateble location, in the middle of Ramblas, very close to Catalunya Square and the Gotic quartier.

The room with its trendy, but very pleasant and slightly romantic decor was always perfectly clean, and we had silent nights and very good sleeping.

And what a charming and pleasant terrace, a perfect playground for chilling out with wine and tapas after long walking days by the sunset, facing the Cathedral´s rooftop.

Room Tip: Ask them for a pic-nic box available, if you are going to get out early in the morning, even before...

Excellent hotel in the centre of everything. Rooms are a little small but well furnished and very clean. Staff are extremely helpful. We had a Jewel Suite on the 6th floor with a large terrace and hot tub - a very nice part of the room offer.

Room Tip: Room 602 is fantastic.

If you want a romantic relaxing and fundamentally cool break in Barcelona this has got to be the place. We spent four nights here last week and everything was more or less perfect. Great location in the centre of everything in an uber cool room which was warm, comfortable and sound proofed. Staff amazingly friendly. Everything good and yes I want to go back.
