“Very central, good service, however smelly bathroom”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012 via mobile

We stayed there for 3 nights.

This hotel is in a very good , central location. Room with high ceiling, reasonably nice however, bathroom has a strong drainage smell which makes our stay a bit unfortable. It helps when we closed the door but unpleasant when go in there. Initially we thought it's the area but by chance we tried the toilet near the computer on the 1st floor and it was ok.

Some tips:

Don't stay in room 207 as it smell. Room 208 and 209 on the 1st floor can be noisy.

It is recommended to take the hop on hop off bus as this bus goes to the mountain part of Barcelona. When take the hop on hop off bus we recommend that you hop off stop no. 8 (orange line). Here you can take the steps to walk down to stop no. 11 (bull ring). There is a water show every evening around 8 pm.

The tapas place next door (Picapolos??) is quite cheap and nice, worth a try!

Dear guest ,
Thank you for your review. We regret to know that the smell problem made your stay uncomfortable and we could have moved to another room if we were informed. Anyway the problem has been solved already and therefore we hope you will visit us again in the next occasion.
Best regards from Barcelona

Stayed for two nights at this hotel and found it the perfect choice. Located near Placa de Catalunya, it's just a short stroll from the airport bus stop and the next metro station. Many sights such as Las Ramblas, the old town, Casa Battlo etc. are easily reachable by foot. Being located in an area with lot's of nice cafes, bars and restaurant, it's no problem at all that the hotel doesn't have its own restaurant or many facilities.
We had a standard double room which was not very big but had everything you need. The bathroom was comparably big and very nicely decorated, with a good shower.
The reception staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The building itself is very beautiful and charming.
This hotel offers great value for money and good service in a perfect loction. We will definitely consider staying here again when in Barcelona.

Another great recommendation from the LUXE guide. We booked this hotel as this guide has never let us down in any city we have visited in the world. Hotel is very lovely building, high ceilings, lovely old style look. The rooms are clean, modern, comfy bed, spacious bathroom, great shower. TV at the foot of the bed, that's all i need whilst away, and it was great. Daily room service. Nice and central almost opposite ciudad for Tapas, nice bar and restaurant next door, everywhere within walking distance. I would stay here again! Perfecto..

Room Tip: We were on 4th Floor, and we slept great!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 days in July of 2011. We stayed there to explore Barcelona before we embarked on a cruise to the Mediterranean. This was by far one of the highlights of our trip. Now the 1st thing you need to understand is that this is a "No Frills" hotel. So if you are looking for a large swimming pool or a full service spa, then this place is not for you. Now if you are looking for a clean place to sleep, great service, and a fantastic location then visit here. You will be one block away from the nearest bus stop, 2 blocks away from the nearest metro, and 3 blocks away from Placa Catalunya and the heart of Las Ramblas. The rooms were small but more than enough and the bathrooms were huge! The only down side was the ac. So each room has its own ac unit, which is controlled by the key card. So take out the key card (it also controls the lights) and the ac turns off after a bit. So we just left one of the key cards in the room to come back to a cool room each day. Also you must visit Piscolabis. It is a restaurant downstairs adjacent to the hotel. Great drinks and great food, and you get a discount if you are a patron of the hotel. Ultimately this hotel was fantastic. We will go back. We loved it.

Excellent staff and really nice room. We didn't order breakfast but ate out most days there's plenty of places around that offer great tapas.

Be careful of Obama bar around the corner from Praktik Rambla they tried to put lots of extra drinks on to our bill. Pay as you go.

La flauta tapas bar a couple of streets away is really nice.

Room Tip: No pool and didn't try the fitness centre!

If you are looking for somewhere different, somewhere with delightful rooms and friendly professional service, look no further than Praktik Rambla. We came to it by chance but what a find - great location with bars and restaurants all around, walking distance of many sights and great for connection to public transport. Breakfast at the next door Piscolabis could have been better but, hey, that was a tiny flaw in an otherwise perfect stay. If you can get room 2009, go for it...it has a sweet balcony and an enormous bed!
