Reviewed February 24, 2013

Perfect hotel, huge room with huge wet room, enough space to house my husband and I plus 3 children (one in a cot). Very accommodating staff who couldn't do enough to help us. Breakfast was in a restaurant next door - large buffet, can't fault it. Go for room 409 if large room is needed.

Lovely "quirky" hotel situated right in the heart of Barcelona, just a couple minutes walk from Placa de Catalunya. You'll understand "quirky" when you get there, it's a bit difficult to explain!! Do not let "quirky" put you off this lovely hotel.
We arrived at the hotel after a few minutes walk from the Areobus stop and were able to check in straight away. I had only booked a standard double but was upgraded to a superior room on arrival. Thank you to the reception staff for the upgrade. The hotel staff are very helpful and friendly. All spoke very good English.
We were on the 1st floor and our room overlooked the main road (Rambla De Catalunya). The room was a good size size and had a kingsize bed, very comfortable, and a small balcony. The bathroom was only small but had what was needed, toilet, sink and shower. Towels (replaced clean everyday), shower gel, shampoo, hair dryer etc were also provided. (Incidently if you do run out of shower gel/shampoo contact reception and they will supply more). Only thing not in the room are tea and coffee making facilties, but this is common in Spain. We knew this, after reading other reviews, before we travelled so took a small travel kettle, tea and coffee.
As I said out room overlooked the main road, which during the day is busy with small cafes and tourists etc but it did get quieter at night and did not affect us sleeping. The window/balcony door does have big shutters to pull accross if required, but we did not use them.
On the 1st floor, at the back of the hotel, there is a large garden/terrace (pictures shown) with plenty of seating, great for a relax/chillout after a busy day sightseeing.
Breakfast is provided in a restaraunt, Piscolabis, next door to the hotel. It was a help yourself affair and offered a continental type of breakfast with cereal, breads, ham, cheese, etc and a cooked (only egg and bacon) if you required it.
Bracelona is a city well worth a visit and this hotel is just in the right location to be close the main parts of the city, Placa De Catalunya, Las Rambles, Gothic Qtr, Gaudi's Casa Batllo etc but far enough away from the centre to be quiet at night. Bus stops for the city tours are just a short walk away from the hotel also.
We had a brilliant stay in this lovely hotel and will go back to it on our next visit to Barca.

Room Tip: Standard doubles are all internal facing. Upgrade to a superior if you like natural daylight in the...

Dear guest,
Thank you very much for this nice review! We always like to make free upgrades, depending on our availability, in order to offer a more comfortable stay to our guests! We do not have coffee or tea facilities in the hotel due the huge offer of restaurants and cafeterias in the near surroundings, but we are glad that you were well suited! Hope to welcome you again and please receive the kindest regards from Barcelona!

The name suggests it quite clearly: Praktik Rambla is a very practical choice for accommodations in Barcelona. The location is great, service exceeds expectations and the hotel is beautifully designed with Modernista touches all over. The best part? The price. The hotel is a real steal for what it has to offer.

GREAT LOCATION: Located at Rambla Catalunya, the hotel is right smack in the heart of Barcelona. Tapas are across the street. Casa Batlló is around the corner. Starbucks is down the street, on the first right. Zara is dangerously close. Cabs are at your doorstep. Public transit is also nearby. Everything you’ll want is literally steps away.

AMAZING SERVICE: My father was suffering from high blood pressure the day we had to check out and the hotel was kind enough to accommodate us for a few hours longer until we left for the airport. This flexibility is a real rarity in Europe.

BEAUTIFUL DECÓR: Simple & modern combined with Modernista accents--the ambience could rival some of the best boutique hotels out there.

VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY: With all of the above considered, it’s unbelievable that the hotel's rate is much lower than other 3-star hotels in the area. With money saved in accommodations, you’ll be able to enjoy more of beautiful Barcelona.

The location is topnotch, the staff are astonishingly helpful and knowledgeable, friendliness even from cleaners and janitors. Superb experience! You could not be more centrally located and still have quiet at night. The little deck in the back is a nice little plus. Cleanliness outstanding! Will definitely keep this place on the short list of places to stay, especially for a weekend getaway when you spend minimal time in the room. Only minus is the lack of day-light, but I also asked for a quiet room so... There is no food service in house, however there are places to eat, and shops, everywhere around the hotel. Value for money = unbeatable!

Just returned from 5 days in Barcelona.
The hotel is in a great location. 5 mins walk to the plaza catalunya where the aerobus stops. Well worth using, quick, easy & cheap. Check in at the hotel was efficient and quick. A fab room on the 4th floor, superior twin. Very modern with the most comfortable beds. The hotel is a work of art, very old and what makes it interesting is that the rooms aren't all next door one another in a long corridor. It's a boutique hotel with only 44 rooms, I imagine all very different in shape and size. We had a superior room which was large, overlooking the street which was not noisy and had everything that we needed. In a city you tend to be out all day so no need for minibars, English tv channels etc...there is. no bar or restaurant in the hotel. Breakfast is taken in the restaurant next door. A simple continental offering with waitress service for eggs/bacon. Maybe a little over priced at 9eur but perfect for me. The outside terrace is a spot of tranquility in a busy vibrant city. If you're looking for something a little different, exceptionally clean and comfortable in a great location than this is the hotel for you.
