Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gaudi Barcelona
Loved the Gaudi
We stayed at the Hotel Gaudi in February 2004.
The staff could not have been more helpfull or polite. The room we had was on the front of the hotel, and although it was a little noisey because the street are very narrow it did not cause a problem. The location is fantasitc. The breakfast were great with a variety of choices. We hope to return the Gaudi very soon.
An excellent short break
Been back a week, after an excellent short break (4 nights) 28 March - 1 April 2004 to Barcelona. The Gaudi is a comfortable, clean and friendly hotel, which for us was superbly situated towards the seafront end of the Las Ramblas, on the Nou De Las Ramblas. On reading previous reports I emailed the hotel to try and reserve a room on the 3rd floor, facing the the Palace Guelle with its wonderful rooftop. On arrival we did indeed have a 3rd floor, front facing room as requested. The room was small but adequate. There was however a good deal of noise during the early hours from drunks or whatever from the street outfront, but that comes from being in the city I suppose. The breakfast buffet sets you up well for the day ahead and the choice was superb. The reception staff were most helpful . Any request such as extra pillows etc were followed up quickly. They recommended places to eat and drink. One of the best we found was called Le Quinze Nits in the Placa Reial just over the Ramblas from the hotel. Be warned in the evening they begin queing at 7pm, and open at 8.30pm. The food and price is worth the wait (even in the rain!). We did the Tourist Bus, both red and blue routes on consequetive days, (20 euros) which we considered to be good value, although somethings do seem to be closed on Mondays - although this might be due to the season. Gaudis cathederal (La Sagrada Familia) was breathtaking, and to think they still have over 50 years work ahead of them - even with todays modern building techniques and siestas!. We climed up inside one of the spires - not for those who don't like heights or confined spaces! If you only visit one place I would recommend this. There is plenty to see and do in Barcelona and the Hotel Gaudi makes a fine base.
The hotel is in a great location, the staff are very friendly and helpful - told us of a great restaurant to visit. There was hardly any noise - O.K. the rooms are small but surely you don't visit Barcelona to sit in a hotel room! Would happily go back.
Loved the Gaudi
Our stay was the week-end of January 16th 2004, a party of 10. The reception area is very pleasant, the rooms not very big, but nice and well appointed. Breakfast is abundant, staff very nice. Location is brilliant, in a side street just of La Rambla. The bar was a nice cosy area to meet other guests. We all agredd that we'd stay there again.
A group of us ( 7 ) went to Barcelona for a cultural weekend, and decided to stay at the Gaudi Hotel. We had 4 rooms ( 3 twins and a single ) and all were clean, warm, quiet (for Spain), and large enough.The hotel is in a fantastic location, just off the Ramblas, close to the marina end, near the Plaza Real ( which is stunning). The breakfasts were good, and the staff were lovely, extremely helpful and accommodating. They recommended restaurants, and made bookings for both restaurants and taxis.I will definitely return to Barcelona, and when I do I will definitely stay here again ┬ although do ask for a room on the 3rd floor as the roof of the Palace Guell opposite is fantastic and well worth seeing.
Don't be put off by the narrow street....this is one great value hotel, with staff who really know what 'service' means........breakfast until 1100 hours (great if you don't stop until the early hours), checkout mid-day, unbeatable location.......just across Ramblas is Plac del Reia (with Gaudi lamps and fountain), the best location in town for a leisurely drink or six while watching the world go by.
Great place, great location !
We stayed at the Gaudi during the first week of August 2003 and found it to be extremely comfortable and very well located. We had a quad room, spotlessly clean and very large. The aircon was very efficient and welcome due to the heatwave, (high 30's). The small bar/restaurant serves good, plain food, reasonably priced. Drinks are reasonably priced also although the atmosphere in the bar is quite subdued, ok for us but if you want party time, try somewhere else ! Breakfast was very good and set us up well for the day ahead. Despite it's very central location(seconds from the Ramblas)the rooms were very quiet at night.
We found the staff to be very efficient and friendly. We would recommend it to anyone, especially those with young families
Great Views Of Palace Guell
We were lucky stayed in the front of the hotel with fanastic views on Palace Guell- room adwequate size with quite a large bathroom. My Nan was in the adjoining room, but she faced the back of hotel and no view at all- but the bed was a double, but the room wasn't as big. Great location though!
The only good thing is the location of this hotel.
We stayed at this hotel in March and the room we were in was very disappointing. Although the room was clean, the decor was poor and the walls were in need of a lick of paint. The reception area is very nice but this does not stretch to the rooms, which are disappointingly small for a 3 star hotel. We were going to ask for another room but as we approached the reception desk another couple were checking out early - they had a room at the front of the hotel, because its so near the busy Ramblas, they did not manage to get any sleep for all the noise. If we had been there for more than three nights I would have moved to another hotel. Its great for location but compared to other three star hotels we viewed I felt it was overpriced.
Good location,nice friendly staff
The Hotel is just off the Ramblas and ideally situated for sightseeing. The rooms are small, but adequately furnished. The third floor is the one to be on, as your room will give you a unique view of the fantastic roofline of the Palau Guell.
The staff are very friendly and the little snack bar will make you chips or coffee at any time.

... really nothing more than a bar with a couple tables. Unfortunately we may have been better off on our own as this was really the first time that a hotel recommended restaurant let us down. However we made the best of it and we were determined to not let a kind of mediocre meal cast a shadow on our excitement about the city.
The next morning we headed off bright and early, back to Plaša Real to meet up with the same tour company for a walking tour focused on the ...

We went down to the old harbour part of Barcelona in the afternoon. We went to the Maritime Museum - still under construction - and saw a replica gallery, some stuff (old maps) and a display of 'gegants' used in the Merce Parades. As part of the Festival there was a tall ships regatta in the old harbour. We went onboard the Russian 'Mir' training ship and wandered around the moll. As the City's Merce Festival website said:

Went out walking and came across a large assembly. Had to get involved and it turned out to ...
