“GREAT HOTEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2011

Fantastic hotel that is perfectly situated for shopping and cultural sight-seeing and also not far from the port.
The staff were excellent - very friendly and professional and discerning.
The bedroom was small but perfectly functional and I had a view over the Ramblas and the double glazing was very effective - no noise at all in the bedroom.
The breakfast was good though could have had more hot choices? But there is enough not to go hungry though!
All in all an excellent hotel that I would not hesitate to recommend.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for posting such a good review.

I would like to focus in your comments about the staff. I have to say that after 14 months running this hotel the service is getting the excellence and every single staff member is very proud and happy about those reviews which are talking aboout them. Thank you very much again.

Regarding the breakfast we have a hot dishes menu although it is just an orientative menu but you can order whatever you want. By the way you are right and we are going to change some words to make it easier.

Finally offer you the possibility to contact me directly in order to arrange whatever you may need in your next visit to Barcelona.

Best regards,

Felipe Turell

It is a small boutique hotel, with a museum on the 1st floor of the Jewels made at that building before converted to a hotel.
The rooftop terrace has fantastic views over the city.
Breakfast was not varied enough to my taste, but all items served were top notch quality. Service was good. We had also an aperitif with some food at the hotel, which was splendid and not over priced. Well worth it.
Room was very comfortable even though was small, we had a corner room so it was quiet but with an open balcony viewing the Ramblas and the cathedral.
The hotel is very close to the Boqueria market, a great place to shop and enjoy the many tapas.

Room Tip: ask for a side room, facing the cathedral

Dear Guest,

First of all thank you very much for posting your good feedback about the hotel.

We personally think there are variety enough but yes, you are right, we value the quality over the quantity.

Regarding the bistrot-restaurant "El Regulador" there are a selection of delicious and fresh food brought daily from the Boqueria market. We are being recognized as one of the best places in the area to taste a high top quality food.

The experience of every single guest will be even more exclusive if you try our tasty restaurant.

I hope to see you again.

Happy new year!!

On Barcelona's famous boulevard La Rambla, a mere minute's walk from the bustling Boqueria city market and adjacent to the delightful Gothic Quarter, who could ask for a more elegant place to stay in the heart of Spain's most exciting city?
We stayed five nights. Our fears of excessive noise proved unfounded, thanks to effective double glazing. Our corner room was tastefully appointed in dark wood, leather and muted gold with comfortable bed and stylish bathroom. To the side was a fantastic close-up view of the facade of the Bethlehem Church and at times we opened the doors onto our tiny front balcony simply to watch the passing show below. The hotel staff were professional and courteous. El Regulador bar-brasserie (on the ground floor) serves an excellent breakfast ... and in the evening an outstanding gin & tonic! The roof top bar has city views. Keep a look out for package deals.

Room Tip: Ask to change your room if you're not happy. Corner rooms have the edge over others.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for such a good review about our charming hotel Bagués.

As you said the noise is totally blocked and that is what i have been trying to explain, we have changed some months ago some staff in our soundproof system and now is working as we were expecting. Thank you vey much again for post some words about that.

I would like to offer you the possibility to contact me directly to arrange whatever you may need in your next visit to Barcelona.

Happy new year!!

Hotel Baques is a small boutique hotel located in the center of La Rambla. Great location! It is near shopping, restaurants & incredible sights. But, the rooms overlooking La Rambla are noisy. Bring ear plugs! The service and the breakfast at Hotel Baques is excellent. Before visiting, you should enroll in "SLH", Small Luxury Hotels of the World. It is free and you can receive a free room upgrade with this membership along with other amenities. For the price, this hotel is expensive. It is more like a 4 star hotel in the US.

Dear Guest,

First of all thank you very much for posting your review in Tripadvisor.

I would like to focus my answer in the noise which i suppose comes from the street. There are too many reviews talking about that (lately in a positive way) and i have to say the soundproof system works perfectly.

If any guest comes to the Bagués hotel and feel the noise from the street just let me know to check what is going on and how to fix the problem. The problem we have found too many times is that the window has not been closed properly.

I would like to offer you the possibility to contact me directly in case you want to make a new reservation at our hotel Bagués.

Wishing you a merry chrismas and a happy new year!

We just got back from a long weekend at this hotel. It is a fairly small hotel in the middle of La Rambla. It is a great location for sightseeing and easy train access. We enjoyed our balcony facing La Rambla. Not too loud in the room. The staff was great and very helpful with any questions we had. The room was very nice and clean. Highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed here for a short weekend away and were blown away! From the moment we arrived the staff were amazing, and they were always keen to help us out during our stay. The room was a great size, cool, and comfortable, plus kept the buzzing ramblas quiet. The bar on the roof was a great spot to relax after a days exploring - the barman was fantastic too, he was really useful on helping us find the unknown parts of the city we wanted to see. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

The hotel is located in las ramblas,which is where you want to be if you are in Barcelona. It was our first trip after we had our first baby. We asked for a crib in the room. They provide it at no extra charge. It's not a big hotel,but rather boutique hotel.Nicely decorated rooms. The room isn't very spacious but you have everything you will need in it. For those many reviews I have read before deciding to disregard them and stay at this hotel ,that its very loud,shame on them ,because the windows they have installed are sound proof. We took the room with the view on las ramblas and to prove my point my baby never woke up by the noise of the street. As long ad the window is shut ,you will have no noise issues. The ramblas street is very entertaining ,if you stand in your balcony you will feel like you are in the middle of the action. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Most of the staff are not even native Spanish ,and their English is okay. As soon as we arrived they greeted us and the person at the help desk gave us a map and started pointing out the attractions and the places we might want to visit during our stay in Barcelona. Breakfast was okay ,don't expect much though,it's a bit expensive because there are very narrow items ,but we decided it was more convenient since we had our baby with us. The room is cleaned twice a day ,once in the morning after you leave for breakfast and another time in the afternoon ,and it's when they leave you a note card of tomorrows expected weather as well as chocolate. We were sent a complimentary bottle of wine same day of arrival. As for the bathroom it's all glass you can see through the glass door ,it didn't bother us ,because it was me and my husband in the room,but I'm sure it would bug us if we had been sharing a room with a friend rather than a spouse. The shower is great after a long day of walking around the streets of Barcelona ,it was very relaxing. Very comfortable and pleasant stay as an overall evaluation.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your feedback about our hotel Bagués.

Yes, as you say the hotel is not a big property and that is what we wanted to make when we thought in this project. This is a boutique hotel where you will feel at home, at least thats what we are trying to do.

Regarding the noise from the street i totally agree with you, there isn't any noise from outside but i have to say we changed some stuff 8 months ago and we improved the soundproof system a lot.

I hope to see you again.

Merry Chrismas and happy new year!!
