We stayed at Hotel Bagues for 3 nights and chose one of the "Jewel" suites to splash out on for a treat to experience something special to finish off our hectic 2 week holiday with a bit of R&R and luxury in the heart of Barcelona. The room and facilities more than matched our expectations and we thoroughly enjoyed the luxury of having our own terrace with an outdoor jacuzzi bath. We were in room 603 and I must admit the other suites on that floor did seem to have more spacious terraces with sun beds etc and I don't know if that means our room was slightly less in price, I don't think so but it is worth bearing in mind when booking. We do have a few grumbles but must admit they are minor and really only about the housekeeping side of things. The fan in the bathroom wasn't working and although there was a flower vase in the bathroom, there were no flowers. We had special towels for using outside (we noticed these were also on the roof for using in the pool) delivered on the first evening (about 8 ish) after we had already used the tub and not again during our stay? We had mats for either side of the bed and the weather forecast for the next day delivered on the second evening but not on any other night and although there were glasses and tumblers in the cupboard for use with the mini bar on the first night they were not automatically replaced and we had to ring down and ask for them. To us, the treat of staying in a 5* hotel is to have impeccable service, attention to detail and little touches that you do not normally expect in cheaper hotels so it was shame that we experienced these minor lapses.
Even so, overall, we would highly recommend the Bagues for your stay in Barcelona. Most importantly the sound proofing was fantastic and we enjoyed peaceful nights which is vital on la Ramblas! The staff were extremely helpful, polite and welcoming and a credit to the hotel. The roof top bar and pool area was very stylish and the barman particularly friendly and helpful. Breakfast was generous and varied and we didn't need to eat again until the evening!
