      Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Sant Agusti Barcelona

      Excellent

      from

      I stayed at the hotel February 2004 and It was excellent! Friendly, helpfull staff and the breakfast was fab too! The maids are great and the room was spot on!! Will definately return soon!!

      Not bad

      from

      We stayed at here for 3 nights in January 2004. The location is great for touring the rest of the city however it is next to a rather dodgy area and I would advise to keep your wits about you when you've been out on a night. The hotel staff were very friendly and although small the room was clean and fresh linen was brought in every day. I would agree with one of the other tripadvisors though in that the walls are paper thin which was annoying when people were up at 6:30am taking a shower at what felt like the end of your bed!! The breakfast was standard but I'd advise eating in one of the several cafes as they're really cheap and the food is fresher. I'd also recommend a good restaurant on La Ramblas "Attic" the staff are great and the food, especially the deserts, are really good. You'll not be disappointed with Barcelona though it's fantastic and although I will be back I'm not sure I'd stay here again.

      Get Thee to A Nunnery

      from

      We had one of the attic rooms at Sant Agusti, old timbered sloping ceilings with a great view of the old quarter. It's one block from La Rambla, and felt close to almost everything--good shopping, eating, sight-seeing. Staff were fine except for one female receptionist, who didn't think we should be given a discount for the first night when they had given away our reserved room and put us into one the door of which didn't lock from the inside or the outside. We won.The breakfast, which is included, isn't brilliant--coffee is quite good, but the rest is lowest common denominator type food. The giant convent oven is used as a table to contain all the breakfast items, and is worth a good look.A word of warning: although just a block away from La Rambla, it's a dark block, and as we neared the hotel our second night there, somebody ran up from behind us and snatched my friend's purse, disappearing down a dark alley. At the police station there were many different stories of thefts in the area, with a surprising variety of methodology.Bottom line: watch your back, use your front pockets, wear your purse under your coat, take a photocopy of your passport (to show when you make a credit card purchase!) & leave the original, with most of your credit cards & money in the safe (which the hotel charges extra for).We love Barcelona, especially the Gaudi works (pure mad genius), and our 10 days there were fully occupied & there's still stuff we'd go back to see.

      Barcelona by the sea

      from

      We like to travel independently and when our friends invited to share a fiftieth birthday treat we opted for a trip to Barcelona, a place they had visited twenty years earlier but was unknown to us. We booked flights from Bristol Airport in England to Barcelona with Easyjet. The trip was good with minimum fuss and formality. Arriving at the airport we took the train into the heart of the vibrant city and eventually found our hotel - the San Agustin which is situated in a tiny square near to a church just of the Ramblas - the main thoroughfare. The hotel - a modest tourist class place was adequate for our needs and provided a very useful base for our week long excursion around the art galleries and sites of the area. Close to the hotel is the famous daily market where fish, meat and vegetables are sold in a noisy throng. This was the place where we opted to breakfast on a couple of occassions, tiring of the hotel's rather predictable fare. There were plenty of moderately priced restaurants a stone's throw from the hotel and we dined in style at a different place each night. Our best meals however were had a lunchtime where the spanish custom of providing a Menu del Giorno offered for about 7 euros a full three course meals. This is widely available and well worth considering as the main meal of the day. The very best of these lunchtime explorations found us down a side alley at a small eatery hosted by Marina, a fierce Barcelonan woman who took no nonense from her clientele made up of mostly stonemasons and builders. For a modest 7 euros we dined on a most delicious seafood paella brimming over a steak platter and washed down with half a carafe of strong and fruity red wine (included in the price) swiftly followed by a huge pork steak and vegetables that we struggled to finish. Not content we then ate a delicious chocolate pudding followed by as much coffee as we could consume. We literally rolled back to our hotel for a necessary siesta. Unfortunately our friends had succumbed to a nasty tummy bug and spent the rest of the holiday cooped up in the hotel while we took the opportunity to explore Barcelona's Zoo. Five days was not really enough time to do the city justice and I for one shall certainly be returning to this delightful place full of Catalonian charm.

      San Augustí good hotel

      from

      Nice hotel, excellent location near the Ramblas good transportation possibilties (bus), no complaints.

      San Agustin OK.

      from

      After reading the reviews on this site, I decided to book this hotel.

      The hotels location was excellent, it was a stones throw away from Las Ramblas and close to many must see sites. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful when I had a problem with my room key, (it snapped!) the problem was sorted out very quickly. The room was very clean and had all hotel room type things we all come to expect. The one and only thing I disliked about this hotel was that it had paper thin walls and you could hear everything in rooms nearby and I could constantly hear people walking up and down the corridor. I would recommend this hotel but only to those who are heavy sleepers and can sleep through anything!

      Very good value hotel, great location!

      from

      I stayed here in 2001 and thought the hotel was great value for money.

      Clean, basic and very comfortable, the staff were friendly and the location was central for sightseeing. Would definately stay there again.

      Very good

      from

      a good hotel in a very central area. works well as a base for getting about easily. the hotel was clean and the rooms were of a high standard and visted by a maid daily. breakfast was simple and quite a limited choice. an excellent restaurant called "rita blue" is adjacent to the hotel where live music was played every night we were there.

      A great base for visiting Barcelona

      from

      Hi,I have at this hotel twice recently (Feb & March 2003). The first time we stayed in a twin room on the first floor. This was similar to many hotel rooms that I have stayed in when visiting continental Europe, i.e. clean and functional. The second visit we got a double room on the top floor, this room was much better retaining much of the original character of the building which I believe was a convent.Breakfast was included and consisted of a buffet style breakfast.This hotel is in an excellent location and is a short distance from many great places to eat and shop. Although situated on a quiet square off Las Ramblas I still found it to be noisey at night (perhaps this is true for most of Barcelona).

      Lovely Friendly Hotel

      from

      We had a lovely stay at the Hotel San Agustin, in October 2002. The hotel is lovely and clean and the staff are helpful and welcoming. The location is perfect, 50 metres to las Ramblas set in a quiet square. The rooms were spacious and bright and it was air conditioned.

      breakfast was good quality with a good selection, wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel at all.

      ... work is incredible and the views of Barcelona are spectacular.

      After leaving the Monument Zone, I take a hike up to Calvary, an area inside the park that is marked by a cross, hence the name of Calvary. Its a short 10 minute hike up and the views are just as incredible, can see the bay around Barcelona. Appreciate the view of Barcelona for a bit before heading back down and exploring the rest of the free area of the park. ...

      Two days in Barcelona

      Train ride into Barcelona was smooth and fast pace of over 300 kilometers which equates to approximately 186 mph. Very modern in design, a glass doors that opens like star trek and a little food coach to enjoy some coffee, beer or wine. Very modern train that put the Chunnel train to shame. We left from the same train station in Madrid where the bombings happened in 2004. Upon our arrival we met with our city ...

The Barcelona card is a rip off it doesn't include entry to anything worth seeing within a couple of days. So after a cone of chips with Catalan sausage topping we walked along the beach. Apparently the sand in Barcelona is imported every year from Egypt so that means I've had Egyptian sand between my toes. We rested on the grass with an icy pole. ...

The wonderful thing about Gaudi's work which we discovered time and time again yesterday at Guell Parc also, is that his designs were extremely functional, ergonomic and resource-efficient, sustainable etc long before these concepts became trendy. Tonight we are off to a traditional Catalan restaurant called Botafumeiro which comes highly recommended. We have learnt over the ...

Let's be more original American geographers!) I had also heard of the region of Catalonia in Spain, but I had no idea that Barcelona was part of it, so imagine my surprise when they weren't even speaking in Spanish!
