We looked at several hotels for our 20th anniverary break in Barcelona without kids. Chose Hotel Bagues for its location and style as well as price - good value. It was stylish and luxurios without being over the top. We splashed out booked a Jewel Suite which came, as advertised, with an enclosed balcony with Jacuzzi, sun bed and table and chairs. Decor was great although the room was smaller than expected but perfectly useable (could do with storage space for empty bags) with plenty of clothes spaces, internet connection and TV/Ipod connection (speaker on the balcony would be nice for jacuzzi music). Sliding glass doors to bathroom were very well designed with frosted panel for toilet privacy.
The hotel was small and friendly. It felt much more homely than larger ones. Just what we wanted. Restuarant food was excellent for dinner and breakfast. Staff were very approachable and helpful in organising restaurant bookings and airport taxi. Room service was generally prompt and housekeeping helpful when asked. Room was not always 'turned down' in the evenings but as we took time adjusting to the late Barcelona evening meals we were not always out of the room at the right time to do this. It didn't spoil our stay at all.
Location on Las Ramblas was perfect. 5 mins stroll to Opera House, Barri Gotica and Place Catalunya. 10 -15 mins to Cathedral and water side. Good AC and window/door seals meant any street noise was not a problem (had a side street view).
A spa facility would be good (especially as most accomodation is rooms and not suites) but having the jacuzzi and booking the spa potions pack meant we didn't miss it. Our first time to Barcelona was excellent
