“Great Location - historical building; worth consideration”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Beautiful historic hotel in the heart of Barcelona. Located just off La Rumbla providing easy walking access to key attractions. Hotel has been refurbished and provides the opportunity to experience living in a building with historic significance (with modern day convenience).

The Lounge on level one is a wonderful place to sit and relax, enjoying a complimentary afternoon juice.

Having said this, the photos of the rooms on the hotel site are a little deceiving. We stayed in a double room which, in essence, was barely big enough for the double bed and not much else. The room also had a mouldy smell, which I imagine is due to the age of the building. Bed very comfortable with great pillows providing an excellent night sleep. Restaurant next door is the breakfast venue - offering best prosciutto and Sangrias in Barcelona. If you are prepared to look beyond room size and are prepared to put up with the smell - the location, the service and the building character will not disappoint.

This hotel was in a very nice location, close to restaurants and just two blocks from the Placa De Catalunya. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a bit small, however the hotel has a lovely courtyard on the 2nd floor.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a girlie city break, the staff were very friendly and welcoming from the off set. We were taken aback by the entrance, light wells and stunning carvings in the stone when we arrived.

Our room was even better, gorgeous bathroom with old victorian style tiles modern chandeliers etc ect everything was just perfect.

Even panicked a bit when we arrived i had read the price wrong as it was so nice but i hadn't it really was that nice and reasonably priced!!

We stayed for 7 nights and got a warm reception from staff. The hotel is very convenient, easy to locate. Our room is with a balcony facing street view, very relaxing and not busy - highly recommended. The staff were very helpful and gave us good recommendations for the scenery and restaurants. We will definitely choose this hotel for our travel to Barcelona again.

Room Tip: high floor with balcony

We stayed at the hotel for 6 nights. Before arrival the staff were very helpful providing us information via email. Our room was nice and quiet even though it was facing the street. The front desk staff were very friendly and nice. They even helped us print tickets that we bought online. It was nice to have a free tea/coffee service, however there was something wrong with the machine. It was very slow and on occasion it would explode (made a mess of my husband's shirt and shorts the first day). The juice service in the afternoons was a nice surprise. Wi-Fi was very slow. The hotel location was perfect since it was between two metro stations. Nice to have been within 5 minutes of Passaig de Gracia since we were able to take the train to the airport. The restaurant with its seats directly in front of the hotel (lighted flower pots) was wonderful.

On arrival given a (free) upgrade; Good beds and great shower;
Good closet space; Delicious (free) coffee/thee;
Super Friendly Staff
Across the street our favorite tapas restaurant (Ciudad Condal, Rambla de Catalunya, 18)
Just around the corner our favorite bar with live music every night (Obama, Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 603)
And after a delicious dinner and a drink, a good night's sleep in hotel Praktik Rambla!

Room Tip: Room 310 was Outstanding (at rear, fairly quiet, no balcony).

I stayed in a single room for a couple of nights before moving on to a motorcycle trip that departed from a hotel near the airport. I wanted to stay close to the excitement. I was not disappointed.

First thing I noticed - location was unbeatable. Walking distance to the Rambla and Gothic Quarter. Also easy walk to the subway.

Second - service was excellent. When I checked in, I was informed that there would be a taxi strike on the day I checked out. I was offerred help to coordinate transportation to my next destination. Later, when I came to retrieve the bags I left in storage (after checking out previously), I was offerred the opportunity to use the amenities on the first floor - washroom, coffee, place to relax - before moving on.

And the quality of the room was excellent. My only comment is that a "Single Room" is just that. It was just enough for me for a couple of days but would have been too small for more than one person.

Room Tip: "Single Room" means just that - one person!
