I was there 2 weeks ago with my friend. The location is great (3min walking from the metro station), however that's all...indeed the room we had was very small, the bed takes all the space, there is no place to put the luggage, our stuffs, or even walk. The washbasin is in the room and not in the bathroom, just in front the bed, so when you wash your hands or your teeth the water falls everywhere! However, we told them we wanted a view, so they gave us a room with view on the street with a small balcony.
On the 1st day, the room service forgot to pass by our room to clean it, we had to advise the receptionist.
Finally, the breakfast is not diversified: they only serve 2 sorts of pastries and sandwiches already done with cheese&tomato sauce (spanish speciality), or jambon inside. Regarding the coffee, you can't use the machine directly, you have to go the reception on the 1st floor, give your room number in order to get "one capsule" of coffee and after that go back to the breakfast room on the 2nd floor to use the machine....it's the 1st time i see that in a hotel with the breakfast included! You can choose the eat inside the hotel or on the terrasse which is very nice.

So all in all, I will advise this hotel to people looking for a simple hotel well located, but who are not very picky concerning the service, the rooms and the breakfast!

It's the kind of hotel I love to stay at.
The decor is just incredible, original, modern and plenty of colors!
I stayed at a single's room, big bed, comfortable pillows and soft sheets.
The view wasn't much (looked to a small space between the buildings) but then you don't spend much time at the hotel when staying in Barcelona.
And to compensate you have a wonderfull terrace, with sofas, sunbathing area, tables, chairs, and parasols.
The location is great, walking distance to almost everywhere, and if you are not much of a walker, the subway is nearby, and so are the big central avenues, La Gran Vía and Pasaje de Gracia, where almost every bus goes by!

Definetly the place to stay in Barcelona!

Room Tip: the lift can be a little bit noisy...if you have a light sleep, ask for a room not to near by,

Really enjoyed The Praktik. Big, clean and comfy bed and stylish, simple rooms. No fuss, no frills, but relaxing. Great shower, flat screen TV and french windows opening onto the street. Clean towels every day. Our room looked out onto the main street, but at night with the shutters closed it was not too noisy. Breakfast fine, bocadillos, pastries and fresh fruit, tea, coffee and orange juice, but loads of cafes nearby if you want a change. As everyone says, a great location, central and near to two or three metros. Barcelona was amazing and the Praktik was a lovely hotel to come back to as a base. I really liked the design and the terrace with the astro turf and fairly lights was really relaxing at breakfast and in the afternoon for a rest between trips. Air conditioning was a wee bit noisy, but it cooled the room down enough to switch off at night. A hotel bar and a safe in the room would have upped my rating.

Room Tip: We had a superior double looking out onto C de Diputacio, not too noisy with shutters shut, but inne...

Good location and centrally located next to several key destinations like Catalunya square and Paseige de Gracia although they are a 10-15 minute walk. Close to metro transportation and several main shopping areas including la Rambla. There were several good restaurants close by. Modest sized hotel with minimal amenities but that is what you will get for this price range and location in Barcelona. Very clean and well maintained rooms although the room and bath were relatively small but not cramped. Good value for the breakfast offering which was 4 euro. Staff was extremely friendly and courteous. Provided good restaurant suggestions and travel directions. We were traveling with our children and asked for adjoining rooms. Although they put us on the same floor, it was at opposite ends. A minor inconvenience but annoying. I would stay here again or recommend it to others.

hotel is located very close to Catalunya square, and Paseige de Gracia street, in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. hotel is quite unique in style, full of lively colors, plants, books ... making atmosphere which makes you feel like at home. Despite casual design of reception, corridors and other shared spaces of hotel, rooms are quite nice, done in minimalistic style, completely new, clean and cushy. i have been in single room, which did not had some view, it was overlooking empty corridor between buildings, and had a sink as a part of the room (generally single room was small) but it was really nice, and the sleep quality was good. if you are staying for more than one of two days, try to book rooms which are overlooking the street.
breakfast at hotel is nice, big choice of bakery products, fruit, sandwiches, freshly squeezed orange juice... overall good hotel which i would recommend for short visits to Barcelona
