Really good hotel in a perfect position for walking to all the main sights or getting on the tour bus. Lovely rooms and nice sun terrace right at the top of the hotel overlooking the city with a small splash pool and sun chairs. The breakfast was lovely and very fresh and the best orange juice you'll ever drink! kids love the jars of free sweets in the lobby! Expensive hotel but well worth paying the extra.

Took one of the Jewel suites, a good size room with a proper bathroom and, brilliantly, a private terrace with your own jacuzzi.

Breakfast expensive (the special offer was €15 each, against the normal €26).

Room service and cleaning first class.

Right on Las Ramblas bur on security issues, full time doorman and reception.

Expensive, but worth it.

Hotel Bagues is an updated boutique, trendy hotel that can be an excellent choice if you want to be in the middle of the energetic streets of the Les Rambles district. If money is not an issue and you aren't traveling with children than this is the perfect hotel for you, with the location that will meet all your shopping and restaurant desires. All the classy amenities of this upscale hotel (each with a balcony overlooking Les Rambles street) is at your fingertips.

For the price of a standard room, don't expect a big room, or some other features such as a fan in the bathroom or a full length mirror. Also, you may want to avoid the breakfast because the food is way below premium standards and a private transfer from the airport is ridiculously over-priced.

In conclusion, the somewhat friendly staff needs a lot of training when it comes to recommendations and manners when dealing with guests. If you do decide to make a reservation at hotel Bagues, here are the 3 prerequisites I suggest before booking here. 1) you are a middle age to older couple not traveling with children 2) have money to burn 3) want a perfect location for a Barcelona excursion.

Dear guest,

Thank you for writing a review about your stay. Your feedback regarding the room design and breakfast at our property provides insight into areas we may be able to improve upon to accommodate guests better in the future. However we would like to inform you that due to this is an 1850´s building, structure modifications cannot be made in order to protect its heritage. We were surprise that you were unhappy with the design of the mirrors in our rooms since we do have full length mirrors in most of the rooms and the rest have the bathroom door as a mirror. Guest feedback is incredibly important to us and we will take your comments and look to improve our design in a near future.

We are glad that you found the staff to be friendly, in fact, if you read other guest reviews; they are very delighted about the service and recommendation our staff provides.

We hope to make it up to you in the future next time you visit Barcelona and we hope your future stay with us make you change your opinion about our property.

Sincerely,,

Felipe Turell

General Manager

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights mid March for a birthday celebration. We certainly made a wise choice. The position of the Hotel on the Rambla could not be better, being halfway between the Port and the main shopping area, near to the Cathederal and the Gothic area, with the Baqueria market a couple of minutes away. The room was comfortable, clean and of a good size. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very modern inside and of a boutique style. It also has a roof terrace and bar, and even at that time of year it was nice to admire the view over the city.

I would not hesitate to recommend it to my friends and family.

We stayed at Hotel Bagues March 7 and 8. We had booked Hotel Bagues on the recommendation of Hotel DO Placa Reial which was booked. We were travelling with another couple who decided to stay at Le Meridien which is only a block and a half away. We could have stayed at Le Meridien with our Starwoods points but decided we didn't want the business man's type of hotel: we wanted boutique. Hotel Bagues is definitely boutique and it's beautiful and clean and the staff very nice. I can't give it 5 stars for a few reasons: mostly my own fault/expectations. Our room was TINY; I should have asked for an upgrade but I was tired and stressed....We had two large suitcases which took up the entire leather couch that was in the room....no where else to put the luggage. It was a full size bed, not a king: not used to that in a 5 star. I'm very tall but I thought oh it's only two nights.....The bathroom is beautiful and well stocked with amenities and towels/robes etc BUT there isn't a soap dish in the shower....there is "design" but function should play at least a small role! This was the 3rd 4/5 star hotel we had stayed in on our trip to Spain. 2 of the 3 had glass doors on the bathrooms....Americans aren't used to that! The other observation I have, based on the 3 hotels we stayed in: no coffee/tea making in any of the rooms! I miss that, to be honest. I ordered coffee for two from room service early one morning and they literally brought two cups of coffee. I was expecting a pot of coffee and a pot of milk. Again: my mistake/expectations. They, of course, immediately brought more and only charged me about 7euro. Breakfast was not included which is normal for the city. It's almost always included in the countryside though. Hotel Bagues is practically next door to Le Boqueria which really is one of the best markets in the world.
La Rambla is interesting but I probably wouldn't need to stay there again. Placa Reial was beautiful and would probably try to stay there next time. The rooms at the Hotel Bagues are exactly as they appear on the website but the standard room is really only suited for a single or very small couple. I just didn't feel that they were trying to "out do" themselves which is, again, my expectation of a 5 star.

Room Tip: We had a lower floor on the side street.....no street noise at all. Completely sound proof. Occasion...

Hotel Bagues is located in the heart of Barcelona on La Rambla, the location is magnificent.
The staff went out of their way to assist us, giving recommendations, doing reservations and being very very helpful. This is not to be taken lightly and should be highly appreciated as the staff dedication, commitment and professionalism is what made our 2 nights in Barcelona into a great and fun trip.
The room we had was very nice with a view to the La Rambla. The breakfast was very good and the breakfast staff were really nice and gave us a great feeling.
All in all it was a very nice stay and we are planning to return.

Great location. Lovely to be able to open the balcony doors and and watch La Rambla come to life each morning. No problem with nosie at night.
Comfy bed. Great shower. Lots of nice extra touches such as a note with the next day's weather forecast and sweets you could help yourself to in reception.
Great roof top bar and pool area. We stayed in March so couldn't really appreciate it but lovely if you stay in summer.
Polite, helpful, friendly staff.
Darkened glass bathroom door initially a little disconcerting but you don't really notice it after awhile.
Would definately recommend Hotel Bagues.
