I was disappointed with our stay at Hotel Praktik Rambla especially after researching TA and other websites and reading good reviews. To sum it up, a very small dark room, (standard room only has a bed, TV, shower, sink and toilet) noisy interior surroundings and not even the basic services of a 3 star hotel. I’ve rated this hotel average as a poor rating is too harsh but in reality it is somewhere in between. Maybe at best average for a 2 star hotel.

This was our second trip to Barcelona in the last two years and my wife and I were very excited to spend more time in this wonderful city, especially La Rambla district, a very lively area with many good restaurants and close to the "must see" attractions of Barcelona. Hotel Praktik is located in this bustling area and that really is where the positives end.

Cons: No closet and a very limited place to hang clothes in the standard room, terrible room lighting, not even a chair or table and no place to place your luggage except on the limited floor space. We were there four nights and everyday housekeeping recycled our allotted two drinking glasses in our bathroom. Really, the same two dirty glasses all four days! We had to wash the glasses ourselves. After our first night we hung one bath towel on one of the hooks (no towel bars here) and dropped the other bath towel and two hand towels on the floor expecting 3 fresh towels. Housekeeping picked up the dirty towels, hung all four of them on the hooks. The next night we were provided only one towel for the entire room. The walls and ceiling are paper thin as you can hear every footstep above you, hear every toilet flush, shower run and hear everyone walking down the hardwood hallway. There is absolutely nothing available as far as food or drink on the premises. You want ice? I was told "We have no ice machine" You are sent to the restaurant next door... Not even a cup of instant coffee in the building. Not even a clock in the room. Our second day (Thursday) we arrived back at the hotel at 5:30PM after a long day of excursions only to find housekeeping had not made up the room. They said they had been busy that day. Hate to see what happens a busy weekend during high season! Do not accept ... repeat, do not accept a room on the 1st floor around the "lounge area and terrace". Unless you smoke (the hallway reeked of cigarettes) and/or plan to party until 5AM, this is not the area you want your room. As a side note we noticed some very interesting “guests?” hanging out in the lounge area still partying at 6:30AM the Sunday morning we were leaving to catch our plane.

Pros: Great location, free wi-fi, moderate room rates (but you'll get what you pay for)

I will not be returning or recommending this hotel. My suggestion is to go directly across the street, pay the extra 25-30 Euros per night at the NH Calderon (a truly nice hotel from previous experience) and enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Stay off the first room floor away from lounge and terrace area. Standard rooms are very small minim...

Dear Steveo145

I am sorry to hear you were disappointed with your stay at the Praktik Rambla Hotel.

I would like to appologise for all the inconveniences you had in your stay with us. I will investigate what happen with your drinking glasses and with the towels you mentioned. We replace the towels and sheets every two days and in case they are dirty or you want to replace them.

We offer limited services as we announce in our website, which means we don't have minibar, or ice machines, or tea/coffe facilities in the hotel, and one of the reasons is because we are surrounded by plenty of restaurants to provide that service for us, this makes posible to offer to all our guests more affordable rates to stay in the center of Barcelona than the rest of hotels around.

All our rooms are sound-proof but in case there were guests making noise we have 24 hours service so you could hace contacted the reception and we would have acted right away.

Sorry again for the inconveniences and we hope you give us another oportunity to prove we are the best hotel in the area.

Best regards

Room Tip: Single rooms are really small, even for one person. Get a double room if you can, even if traveling...

It was our first time in Barcelona and we were advised to stay on Las Ramblas. We accidently booked this hotel which was at the end of Ramblas and I couldn't be happier with my location. It is minutes away from Ramblas but has better restaurants around. The area was very lively even in the late hours of the night. And the Tapas bar across the street is a MUST GO!
The hotel itself was very nice. It was clean and very trendy. There is not alot of extra space in the room but it is just enough! And the staff was super friendly! Everyone spoke English and gave us a lot of helpful tips. Will definitely stay here again!

We stayed at Praktik for one night - the building and its interior are really beautiful.
We got upgraded to a superior room - the room had really high ceiling which made the room seem so much larger then it really was.
The bed was really comfy!!!!
The bath was superb with a rain forest shower overlooking the terrace.. (perfect if you are an exhibitionist:):))....
The service was really good both in the reception and for breakfast.
Hotel Praktik has a fantastic location at Rambla de Catalunya just a short walk from where you want to be:)
The hotel offers free wifi - which should be standard at all hotels.
We will for sure stay at the hotel again.

Dear Imyren

Thank you for your review in Tripadvisor. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our superior rooms with the walk-in shower.

Wifi today is very important for everybody so they can connect with the people they love when they are away and we think it should be always free in these days.
I hope to see you back with us.

I've stayed in this hotel the last several times I've been in Barcelona. The rooms ARE as tiny as they say on their website, but the size of the rooms is amply compensated by the charm of the building. Plus, being so well situated to enjoy the wider charms of the city, you'll only be in your room to sleep anyway. I'll be back
