We stayed at Praktik Hotel because I orgainsed a surprise trip to Barcelona for my boyfriends birthday. We saw the sites and also went to Sonar Festival.
This hotel was brilliant! Perfect location to the main bus station and metro to get everywhere, lot's of nice restaurants outside and not majorly busy either & the hotel offers you discounts for local restaurants.
The rooms were perfect; clean, nice large bed, TV, AC, Lovely shower, Lovely Sink, and the decoration was pretty cool too! The rooms were on the small side, but definatly not anything to complain about. It was enough space for me and my partner, plus who stays in there room longer than to get ready, sleep and shower???
The staff were very friendly and helpful, during our stay the Euro Football was going on so they placed a white board in the reception for each room to guess the score each day. Who ever won would get free breakfast the next day! Was a great idea!!
The hotel itself is very pretty and has a lot of character. You can get a lift to the floors or use the stairs and look at the pretty detail carved into the walls.
The rooms don't keep out a lot of noise, and you can hear people in the corridors throughout the day and night. Although I couldn't hear people in their rooms unless we and they had our windows open, which is just a given to noise if you do this. We just stuck the AC on and closed the window.
There are no tea making facilities, but this didn't cause any concern. It is a very British thing anyway and I wouldn't expect this going to another country.
The cleaners were very good, they left complimentory shower gel and shampoo every day.
They have a lovely book room and courtyard where you can eat and drink day and night. The hotel let's you bring food into the hotel, which is good :o)
For those who are looking for room service Praktik don't provide this service, however this didn't affect us as we prefer to explore different restaurants.
Overal the stay at Praktik was very pleasent and I would definatly stay again.
We would stay at Praktik Hotel if we attend Sonar Festival next year!
