Really loved this hotel, which is unique in that in converting it, they have left the orginal, beautiful 19thC building intact, with its fabulous, original modernist entrance hall, French windows, painted tiled floors, ceiling decorations etc. I had 209, the biggest and best room, with a lovely semicircular terrace overlooking the inner courtyard garden below , huge high ceilings and an enormous double bed. I think there were 1-2 single mattresses in there too! My only negative - I was travelling alone on business, so had no-one to invite to party on the terrace!. Staff were very helpful and professional too, and it's in a great central location.

Probably one of those worst hotels I've even been to. A two star hotel at best. Had to switch rooms twice because rooms smelled like sewage. Pleasant. Got upgraded to a bigger room. Manager was nice about it. The man in the green tie at the front desk was not helpful or nice at all. Only thing good about hotel was the location. Not worth what we paid for room.

Fabulous hotel in a great location - far enough from the Ramblas to be a bit quieter but only 5 mins walk away.
Stunning old building (supposedly with Gaudi links) that has been converted brilliantly to a trendy boutique hotel.
Room was very clean and bathroom was excellent - i want one!
Highly recommend it and not too expensive considering its in the middle of one of Europes most beautiful cities.

I stayed here for 4 nights in July with a friend and we loved it! Small but gorgeous hotel, lovely rooms and a lovely atmosphere. Very quiet; we only saw a few other guests during our stay, all rooms are soundproofed so a very good nights sleep! The terrace is lovely and relaxing after a long day in the city. The staff are very friendly and willing to help whenever you need them, they helped us with directions each day. Also the best tapas bar EVER located next door- we went there every day as it was so nice!! The location for this hotel literally could not be any better; right in the centre of town! And literally 2 minute walk to Ramblas.
The only thing we were disappointed with in the room was that we had a view of a wall and there was no full length mirror in our room, the only mirror we had was a small one in the bathroom. Only tiny things... Other than that the room was VERY clean and just a gorgeous hotel in general!
Would recommend to all! I can't wait to return!!!!!!

The hotel is a converted tenement building to a high standard with many of the original features. Consequently, unless you got a front or back room you had no view from your window. Such was ours. I reckon you could swing a cat but it would just touch each wall on the way around. The TV had loads of channels, unfortunately none were english. The ubiquitous CNN was there but a half hour was more than a normal person could stand. Electricity fusebox kept blowing due to faulty extractor fan but as long as you kept the bathroom light off you could keep the light on in the bedroom. On the plus side, the hotel fronted onto an extension of Las Ramblas which was excellent for cafes and transport. The only we saw were on the front desk. They were most friendly and helpful. A pleasant stay despite the rainy weather.

I wanted to add my review to the many other positive things people have to say about Praktik Rambla. We stayed for three nights and had the most perfect time. Everyting about the hotel lived up to expectation: the location is safe and ideal; the service was friendly and efficient; the wifi worked all the time; the bed was huge and exceptionally comfortable (especially the pillows). Also I have to point out in particular that this one of the cleanest, if not the actual cleanest, hotels I have ever stayed in (and I've stayed in loads throughout the world).
All in all our stay at the Praktik enhanced the wonderful time we had in Barcelona. I can't recommend it highly enough!!

First of all - perfect location. In the centre on city, near Catalunia Sq. But on the very quiet street, so you will be not disturbed by car or people noise. Next point - atmosphere and rooms. This hotel is not standart coridors and rooms. Its like a very big flat on each floor, with lounge zone, library, terrace and few bedrooms. Of course in the room you will have all own facilities as shower and wc, aircon, etc... In the warm weather you can go to terrace directly from the room. As for other benefits - clean! really clean and very tidy, no problem with hot water (temperature, pressure), normal (I mean - modern) fan in bathroom, big beds and room was also quite big. Probably only one moment a bit inconvenient - no frig (but we didn't need it and so it was not a problem during our stay). And second one - sometimes it was cold in room, aircon couldn't heat it. But anyway!!!! We liked this place, really enjoyed our staying and will recommend this hotel to friends!
