“Perfect Location”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Stayed in March with my partner and our son for his 18th Birthday. Had a large front facing room with king size bed and a single bed, plenty big enough for the three of us. Lovely balcony over looking the main street. Although on a main street glass doors plus shutters meant no night time noise at all. Hotel simply beautiful, and the location could not have been any better, right in the middle of everything. Would definitely recommend this hotel and can't wait to return.

We loved this hotel. It is architecturally impressed, and our room was stylist, spacious and clean. (Including a shower to die for). The staff were very helpful and friendly. And the location is perfect, quiet, but a few minutes walk away from Placa Catalunya and the Rambla. (Note that this hotel is not on the main Rambla -- Rambla de Catalunya is a different street). There is also a lovely deck which was a nice place to relax between outings. The only negative concerns breakfast. The hotel does not have breakfast but they have an arrangement with a small restaurant next door. That would be fine except that the breakfast is poor. But it's no problem since there are various better and cheaper options within a few minutes walk. Overall this hotel is very highly recommended.

An excellent location, with most places accessible easily on foot. We stayed in a Superior room (room 303). We had asked for a higher floor and a balcony and the hotel gave us just that. The room was large, with a huge comfortable bed and a lovely bathroom with a rainshower. The room was clean and modern, with a large wrought iron balcony overlooking the street. The building has loads of character with lovely orginal features. The staff were friendly and efficient. The only thing that was a bit of a letdown was the breakfast. It was in the nextdoor restaurant, and was rather limited and often did not have cups/plates/glasses and the staff seemed too busy and reluctant to rectify this. I would definitely recommend the hotel and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Higher floors are quieter and balconies are lovely at the front of the hotel. Pay extra for Superior...

The hotel is situated very close to Placa de Catalanya, in the heart of Barcelona. It is easy to take the airport bus when arriving. The front desk is friendly and we got upgraded to a superior room! The hotel is a nice boutique hotel with a lovely Barcelona charm. Trendy design and clean. Nice backyard terrace. We didn't have breakfast with our room, but it was served in the neighbor restaurant. We went to see it one morning; a very basic, quite poor buffet breakfast, not worth the money.
Our room was on a 3rd floor with windows to the backyard. Room was nice, light, modern and clean. Very comfortable bed!! However, the walls are like paper and we could hear every conversation the neighbor room people were having and even woke up to it at 6:30 in the morning. The neighbors also came to knock on our door when we were talking with a normal voice at 11pm...not pleasant.
Location and design is great, but due to the noise, I would not stay in this hotel again. If you do, take ear plugs with you!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking time to write this review about Praktik Ramble hotel and we really appreciate it. We regret to know that the breakfast was disappointing for you and we will take note of this to improve it. We also regret to know that the noise problem made your stay uncomfortable and we could have moved to another room if we were informed. We hope you will visit us again in the next occasion.

We were very happy with this hotel. The location was ideal, right on the Main Street closeby to all the major attractions. We walked to the beach, Picasso museum, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batillo etc. Tons of cafés and small shops nearby for food as well!
The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the bathroom was clean, rain shower was lovely.
The only downside was that the room wasn't very large but it was clean and sufficient for 2 people, we were very happy with it. We requested a room higher up and had no street level noise, it was a peaceful night.
Overall we were satisfied with our stay, it was great.

Dear Guest,
Thank you so much for your nice review! I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay with us even if you found the room was small. The hotel is located in a Historic and amazing building and Government is very stricted with keeping the structures and decorations in the way they were at the beggining of the century, and we also wanted to keep it that way. We are delighted to invite you to come back to the hotel and try one of our Praktik WOW rooms, which will make your stay "unforgettable".
Thanks again for your stay with us and hope to see you soon again.
Best regards,

Beautiful rooms, fantastic rainshower and a comfortable bed. A great stay at Praktik Rambla!

We've had an issue with purchased football tickets, but the wonderful hotel receptionist Johanes helped us solving the problem and made our stay even better.

When we come back to Barcelona, we'll definitely stay here again.

Good small hotel, very different from the average chains, with a unique blend of new & old in a fantastic location. It is within walking distance of Placa Catalunya, Las Ramblas, Bari Gotic & Casa Batllo. What more do you want! The airport bus drops off in the Placa Catalunya & the hotel is only about 5 mins walk (a couple of blocks up from the square). The hotel is also easily identified by the yellow canopy outside - useful as we nearly walked past on a couple of occasions when we were so busy looking around that we nearly missed it!

The hotel has managed to combine character with providing modern facilities. It lacks a little atmosphere due to limited public areas -we only saw a few people during our 4 night stay. However, in better weather I imagine the lounge & outdoor area would be much more popular.

The freezer in the lounge area could do with defrosting or replacing with an ice machine although these can be noisy. The complimentary tea/coffee was a nice touch.

The room was not particularly large but had a high ceiling & the space was well planned. The room was at the back, with the only window looking onto a central light well. This meant that the room was a little dark, especially with the black ceiling, but it was quiet with no street noise which suited us. You are always at the mercy of other guests in relation to noise particularly when the floors are tiled, but we were lucky during our stay. The bed was large & extremely comfortable.

Another reviewer was critical of the TV but we only switched it on once & it seemed fine. Anyway we didn't come to Barcelona to watch TV.

The bathroom was well equipped with a handy shaving mirror, a rain shower & also the option of a hand shower, useful if, like me, you want to keep your hair dry.

The staff were friendly & helpful & provided us with a map which was useful. They also told us we could get 2 buses to the airport on our return which would be much cheaper than the Aerobus, but we were happy to stick with it.

We did not have breakfast next door as we only have coffee & croissant so we just tried a different place each day in the surrounding area. The prices did vary considerably - from less than 4 euros per couple to 12 euros ( the latter included a large orange juice at 3.85 euros)

We would definitely stay at this hotel if we are returning to Barcelona.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back have no street noise but also no view.
