Having read other reviews I expected better from The Hotel Gaudi. Don't get me wrong, the location is faultess, the room was clean and the secure car park next door (20 euro for 24 hours) was a major plus point and the staff were friendly.....so what was the problem? The room was so small you could just about fit around the double bed, it was unbearably hot in the room even with the heating turned off it was still 28 degrees. The air-con was not working and the window opened onto a small inner courtyard that provided no cooling.
The bed whilst fairly comfortable had pillows fashioned from some form of hard wood so sleep was difficult. However what was most frustrating was the noise transferance from the hall and other guests - yes of course the hotel can not be held responsible for other peoples lack of consideration but I feel they could have done more to stop the screaming kids running up and down the hallways banging on doors in the early hours.
Couldn't wait to get away and was thankful that I was only there for one night.
I'm due to return to Barcelona this month but won't be staying here inspite of the fact that it is so well placed - I'd rather get a better nights sleep and walk a bit further to see the sights.
