“Very good, very central”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

I stayed at the Hotel Praktik Rambla for four nights in February 2012, with my mother; we each had a standard double room, which meant they were inward-facing, but even so they still had natural light and were very spacious. The hotel is 19th-century and very elegant, with lovely mosaic floors and floral carvings on the walls, but the rooms are very modern and the beds big and comfortable. I have to say that I wasn't very keen on the shower, but this was a minor issue. The staff are friendly and helpful and fluent in several languages. There is no breakfast room or restaurant in the hotel, but there is a nice lounge/conservatory where we went to sit and drink a bottle of wine in the evening, and there are plenty of places nearby where you can go for meals - we had breakfast a couple of times at Matamala, a block or so nearer the Placa Catalunya, where you can get a very nice coffee and croissant for €3. The hotel is extremely central, very close to the Catalunya metro station and a few minutes' walk from the Ramblas.

Dear Teresa

Thank you very much for your review.

We do offer a buffet breakfast in our restaurant which is right next door to the hotel. As we are a historic building, we cannot change the walls of the hotel so it is necessary to go out and in right thru the next door.

Please don't forget to ask for our breakfast in your next visit.

Thank you again and Regards from Barcelona

My husband and I stayed her for the first half of our honeymoon and could not have been happier. First off, the staff was incredible. He let us check in early after a red eye flight from NYC, gave us a map and showed us all the places we asked about. He literally knew everything. He even gave us a few hours to pay for our room when our debit card wasn't working overseas (had to find an ATM). The room went above our expectations! From what I understand, it is close to impossible to find an "american" sized room in Europe. Well, they have them here! I can't decide if the bathroom or the view from the balcony was better. I am usually not a fan of the Ultra-Modern look that Europe is so fond of right now, but Hotel Prakrik did a fantastic job of combining the old with the new. We really loved this hotel, and for the price, it was well worth it. Hotels down the street are twice this much, and the location is the same. Stay here, you wont regret it. My husband and I still talk about how much we loved this hotel a year later. We really can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the view and larger the balconies I believe.

My husband and I stayed here last May but I just realized I forgot to write a review. We read a lot of reviews online that we shouldn't stay on Las Ramblas so we stayed here upon the recommendation of a friend. This hotel is in a perfect location! It's in an area called Catalunya which is full of shopping and restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to the double decker city bus and touristic center to book other trips. It is less than 10 minutes from Las Ramblas and if you really feel up to it, you can even walk to La Barceloneta (the beach) which is probably about a 30 minute walk. The front desk staff is very nice and super helpful. Very knowledgable about touristy type questions as well.
The hotel itself is very tiny and quaint. Typical European style. The good thing is, while in Barcelona, you will barely spend any time in the hotel. The room itself is super small but the bathroom is a very nice size. The hotel is very modern and clean. There is a courtyard area on the roof with lounge chairs that is really nice. There is no kitchen or bar on premises but food and drinks can be found right next door and all around the area.
We spent 4 days there and one day we did the double decker bus tour which I would highly recommend to see all of Gaudi's work. We also did a day trip to Montserrat- just took the train out there which was super easy. The views were just gorgeous. We went to a flamenco show, visited the impressive W Hotel, ate some great food, got lost in Boqueria, hung out at the beach, partied with the locals and walked the entire city. It was an amazing trip in one of the most amazing cities. And this hotel made all of it a little more enjoyable and a lot easier!

Dear Guest

Thank you for the comment after all this time! Thank you also for sharing your experience at the Praktik Rambla with other guests who will definetly come after reading your nice comment.

The size of the rooms are different, depending on the type of room you select at the time of reservation. In my website there are explanations and pictures of all of them. As we are a Historic Building, the size of each rooms depend on the original wall of the building, as we cannot change or touch anything as it is protected by the Patrimonial laws, that is why we did standard rooms and superior rooms, which are bigger and exterior.

We hope to see you again with us in the near future.

Best regards
