Hotel Praktik Bakery

Last time we went to Barcelona, we stayed at Hotel Praktik Rambla and loved it. At the moment, Praktik Hotels has no less than 4 locations in Barcelona, of which two have opened in the last year.  When we headed back to Barcelona a couple of weeks ago, we were determined to try one of the three other Praktik hotels, and finally decided on Praktik Bakery, a hotel with 74 rooms just off Passeig De Gràcia.

The hotel’s theme comes from the bakery located in the hotel lobby. It may seem a bit of an unusual combination, but it makes sense: who doesn’t like the smell of freshly baked bread in the morning? The popular Baluard bakery has a branch on the ground floor/ lobby in the hotel, providing hotel guests and other hungry visitors with breakfast, lunch and coffee. Baluard already had an outlet in the Barceloneta area, but with the opening of the hotel, the bakery also services the people living and working in the centre of Barcelona. In the four days we spent at Praktik Bakery, there was literally always a queue forming inside the bakery and on the sidewalk during opening hours.

Hotel Praktik Rambla

Last spring, we embarked on yet another citytrip to this wonderful city and stayed in hotel Praktik Rambla, right in the centre of the city on Rambla de Catalunya, in one of those typical amazing Barcelona buildings you can find in the area.

I loved staying here. The location is perfect, the service is good and the interior, well see for yourself! The interior of this place was decorated by my favorite decorator from Barcelona, Lázaro Rosas Violan, who also did Boca Chica/ Boca Grande. He created a wonderful modern atmosphere while respecting the original details of the building, and the details are absolutely wonderful! I’d definitely recommend this place. Read more ›
