Reviewed 20 August 2014

the hotel is stunning, the staff are really friendly, the rooms are really comfy and very classy looking, one thing about the rooms also is that when the balcony doors are closed over looking La Rambla and curtains closed you could be mistaken for not being on a the busiest street of Barcelona with the sun bright in the sky, its so dark and quiet, and as soon as you open the doors the noise comes flooding in, i can't say enough good things about this hotel, the roof terrace is brilliant and has excellent views of the city, highly recommend staying here 100%

Room Tip: ask for one over looking La Rambla

We stayed at this hotel from 15th to 18th August and had booked a suite as the trip was for a birthday celebration. We arrived early at the hotel and only had to wait 5 minutes before our room was ready which was great!

When we were taken to our room it was a bit disappointing having looked at it on the website we were expecting more of a wow factor. The room was tiny, no way worthy of being called a suite it was just a double room with a very small terrace, we only had a small jacuzzi and no sunbathing area as shown on the hotels website. The guy showing us the room advised he had put the canopy down to keep the sun off the room but recommended we keep this down as anyone at the roof top bar could just look over on to our terrace. This room is not worth the price for upgrading so don't waste your money!

We never ate in the hotel as there are so many great places in the city to try.

The staff at the hotel were all very helpful and nice and nothing was too much trouble.

Would we stay here again? The answer is probably not as you are just paying for the location and there are probably much better hotels off La Rambla that would be better value for money.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel, great location, very friendly service, clean room and even though there was a constant traffic of people right downstairs, I did not hear a single sound once the door was closed. The front desk staff was amazing and made me feel welcomed and at home right away.
The only complaint I have is that they raised the price on Friday when I had booked for 5 nights in advance for the same price. They should mention it up front or at least when you are checking in.

I am definitely going to stay there again and may be next time try their suite.

Hotel Bagues is one of my all-time favorite hotels: a small boutique hotel in the middle of action in Barcelona. The location is perfect to get oriented to Barcelona: next to the famous Boqueria Market, down street from one of Gaudi's first houses, next to the Metro. The service was very personal from the front desk, from ordering on-line tickets to advice about the city. My room was perfect although small, which I liked as I was travelling solo. The pool on the roof was unique, and the view of the city from the roof amazing. I will definitely stay there again if I am Barcelona!

Hotel is situated directly at La Rambla, the busiest street in Barcelona. The room is really small although it is decorated with designer ideas but overlooked practicality. The service is ok to some standards. If one do decide to have a drink at the rooftop bar, you have to call the concierge before heading up as there is no one attending the place. The "swimming pool" is so small that I can only term it as 3 combined bath tubs. Staff were polite and spoke English but all else fell below my expectations for being a 5 star hotel.

Staff extremely helpful and pleasant. Most everyone spoke English which was great. We stayed on the 5th floor facing La Rambla. For as loud as the pedestrian traffic is, it was nice to close the balcony door and not hear it. Happy with bed, size, decor, bathroom. Seamed like we had to keep adjusting the air conditioning but it wasn't. Enjoyed time on the rooftop patio--sunny and shady areas. Location is perfect--easy bus ride from airport and short walk to hotel. Can walk everywhere--to Gothic area, to waterfront, to catch a tour bus. Loved the tour bus--perfect & inexpensive way to see the city. Can get on and off as many times as you want for the day.

The hotel is designed as trendy, boutique, styled etc. - but there were numerous instances when designer's zeal trumped common sense, and cause numerous instances of inconvenience - here's a list:

Bath: no handle to climb out, no soap holder, no rubber mat, no chance to reach faucet without climbing into bath itself

Wash basin: stupid design that doesn't let water run off, tap inconvenient, leaks and strains immediately

Toilet bowl suspended too high for comfort (NB toilet on the roof terrace is also suspended, but at the right height). Paper holder bass design: unrolls with great resistance, but cannot year off paper with one hand

Lack of ventilation is abysmal: after shower (key alone after using toilet) atmosphere status stagnant for hours

Room:

Dark walls and black mirrors challenge even his eyesight to see

Lighting is bad: spotlights radiate heat to such an extent, that the feeble aircon immediately losses out, and room gets hot

Storage provision is non-existent: drawers lack rear wall, do small items fall thru

There's nowhere to put away luggage

There is no chair, and the sofa is inconvenient for two, as us the table

The empty well that runs thru the middle of the building uses up space that would have been better used to provide some are for guests' common use, meetings etc.

Roof terrace:
This is a grilling torture under scorching sun. No parasols nor tent provided, so it's a health hazard after more than an hour. The empty bar looks sorry for itself, and is useless: if it is just to prove support for a phone, then a phone on the wall would have done better. There is no shower provided, and the pool is an epitome of uselessness: one runs into the walls the moment one tries to swim, like in a bath...

Health club:
"Sauna" is in fact a steam room, but: steam is coming out at such level that it heats up maybe top third of the room, whilst the floor remains freezing cold!

Room Tip: avoid flat washbasins, leaking taps and bad ventilation
