Arrived hot and tired. Great air conditioned reception area. Superb reception team welcomed us and took us to our room. Beautiful stylish accommodation. Very welcome complimentary drink. Fabulous bed and responsive air conditioning. The service is exceptional here. Very quietly efficient. A real gem.

First, the good; great location on the always always busy Rambla (think Times square busy); and boquiera/market and metro stop/cataluyna square for tours. Easy walk to beach but it takes 20 minutes plus. Access to old city is easy and El Born, but again, 20 minutes so expect that time. Easy paths on pedestrian streets Also, staff helpful with restaurant choices, maps, understand english well etc. Boutique style hotel with modern lobby. Great breakfast to start the day (get it included or it is too expensive given the market almost next door).
The rooms however are terribly designed. Small is a nice way to describe; but even small with good design would be acceptable - this is not. The idea of a glass door directly opposite the bed in a tiny room; with a direct view of the toilet; ain't pleasing unless you are single traveler. Ridiculous since could easily 'shield' the glass with opaque/curtain or whatever. Airconditioning is fine and not noisy at all; but 'drapes' the margins of the room so it 'falls' on the head of the bed - design less than perfect.
Good sound 'proofing' especially notable when you open the window - so good for them
Literally around the corner is Bar Lobo - go! good action and good food including tapas and meals. Busy on weekends to the n'th degree but fun as it should be

Overall, nice visit in may, 2012. Hated the room design and i travel a lot!

I stayed at The Hotel Bagues for two nights in March right after Mobile World Congress. It was a fantastic location - quite the oasis from the hustle and bustle of La Rambla, although I was able to open my window and look out on the street in the evening when I wanted to. When I shut the window, the noise was completely shut off. The sound proofing was very good. The room was small but very comfortable, modern and luxurious. The hotel itself is very nice and tastefully decorated. The staff was very helpful. I did not try the restaurant. Would highly recommend it for anyone visiting Barcelona.

When we arrived they told me we had booked a single room. It did have a double bed but was a smaller room. They were totally booked. We saw the room and it was lovely. Very modern and very quiet. We didn't mind the double bed. The service was very good. The location is awesome. It is right next door to the boquiera market which is amazing. We could go to everywhhere. Great position. Our room no. Was 102 and only had a small window but it was nice and dark for sleeping.

Dear Guest,

First of all thank you very much for posting your feedback.

As you say, you had a single room reserved and we were fully booked so maybe because of that your experience was just 4/5 when we are always trying to get the best score through our high standard service.

I am sure if you book the superior room or deluxe room your experience will be unforgettable.

I would like to arrange the reservation for your next visit to Barcelona and help you with whatever you may need.

Warm regards,

Felipe Turell

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend when we went to the Spanish GP. All the staff we encountered were very nice, helpful and professional. The hotel itself is quite designer as was the room we stayed in. The room was quite small but most importantly was clean and kept clean during our stay. The location on Rambla so it is easy to walk most places you just have to be careful out at night although I did notice quite few police around. While it was very noisy outside as soon as the window was closed there was barely any noise at all from outside.
Food and wine was also very good
I highly recommend this hotel as they have clearly made a lot of effort to please their guests.
