“It's all about location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013 via mobile

Just returned from 2 nights in Bagues Hotel and was very happy altogether.Yes the breakfast was a little pricey but all fresh locally sourced ingredients and freshly cooked for you on request.
All staff very courteous and helpful, giving travel advice and booking restauraunts.
5 minute walk up to Plaza Catalunya for bus transfers to and from airport, very easy.Rooms tastefully decorated.
All in all, 5 star hotel? Imo not quite but definitley value for money and location the best!

This small hotel is very well located in the middle of the Ramblas in Barcelona, we had a ordinary
room with a tiny balcony overlooking the rambles, the room adequate in size, had everything you could want. the bathroom(shower only) but very tastefully decorated, no noise from the street during the night. Staff very helpful, breakfast I found was very good plenty to be had, and different varieties choice for everyone. The top terrace overlooking the city was interesting.
The only problem (and not one the hotel can deal with) is the tube which seems to run under the hotel, but then all the hotels in the ramblas have the same problem.
Security very good in my opinion. Not a cheap hotel but we enjoyed ourselves.

Room Tip: Over looking the Ramblas if you like people watching.

Firstly it is worth paying extra for jewel suite - do not think too hard about price just book it - the pleasure that comes from sitting in the jacuzzi with champagne listing to the bustling La Rambla down below is priceless. Rooms are small but tastefully decorated and have nearly everything you need. Breakfast was very disappointing - we felt that we had to ask for everything. Only a small selection of each item of food was put out and obviously went quite quickly - food was then not replenished we had to constantly keep asking for things. We were here for 3 days and was same for each day. We arrived at about 5.30pm and although we were shown to our room immediately we had a visit within minutes for a house maid to sort some things in our room which were not quite ready. Rubbish was not taken away daily nor were dirty glasses taken away and no bin to put rubbish in so had to put rubbish in carrier bag which was not taken away. On last night bath robes were taken away and not replaced with clean ones - this spoilt our enjoyment of jacuzzi somewhat as we had nothing to slip into as it was very cold outside. We asked for replacements and just got more towels! For a 5 star hotel with private jacuzzi we would have thought we would have at least got bathrobes and a good breakfast.

Room Tip: Jewel suite everytime

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying at Hotel Bagues and for reviewing on Trip Advisor.

We are very sorry to hear that our breakfast buffet was not up to your expectations. All our ingredients are fresh from Boqueria Market and as seen from the other favourable reviews on TripAdvisor, your experience was not the norm.
Regarding the inconvenience with the cleaning service, we are taking action on to rectify and make sure that this issue won’t happen again.

We greatly appreciate your extensive feedback about your visit and we hope you give us the chance to demonstrate the service that we are known for with a return visit in the near future.

Sincerely,

Mercedes Garcia
Front Desk Manager

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

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.
