“Not expensive but we had problems”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

On the first night,Instead of twin beds as requested I had to share a double with my future son-in-law. They changed our room very efficiently the next day and at least the air con worked in this room but like the first room the safe failed to work. The curtains do not keep out any light so it gets light very quickly in the morning. On the plus side the shower was great, all of the hotel was exceptionally clean, the staff were pleasant, the breakfast more than adequate and there is a very friendly tapas bar only a few yards away. Because hotels in cities are generally noisy I use ear plugs so can't comment on the noise issue.

My husband and I stayed at the Praktik Bakery Hotel mid June 2014. The entrance way is through a bakery, and the reception desk is towards the back.

Positively: The hotel has a fresh feel about it and the decor is very nice. It is very central close to shops and restaurants/transport and the €7 breakfast available at the bakery downstairs is good value.

However, negatively - the rooms are very, very small, and there is no fridge in the rooms. The walls are wafer thin and you can hear your neighbours talking/showering/flushing toilets.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review. We are so glad you appreciate our location and our bakery.

We regret you are disappointed because you don't have a fridge in your room however you dispose of a fridge in the breakfast longe where you can leave your things.

About the noise we are doing our best to solve this problem along this month.

We hope to see you again next time you come back to Barcelona.

Best regards

This hotel has serious ongoing construction and general room issues.

The king beds are pushed together singles and move very easily not having box bases. The room is VERY small with the entrance way to the room also being the closet, sink and entrance to the the shower and toilet.

The check in area is based at the thoroughfare/entrance to the cafe seating and does not have space to sit separately it is mostly only manned by one person so wait times when checking in and out can be considerable.

Construction/street noise is constant and so is the noise from all your neighbours, on either side, the hall ways and above. You can hear your neighbour sneeze, kick their shoes off, go to the toilet, speak (in a normal voice), walk around their room. It is very unpleasant and I am not exaggerating. There is no minibar or fridge or water provided. The aircon is set to go off when the room reaches the temp you set it to but it doesn't come back on again when the temp goes up again so you will get very hot in the summer and you can't open windows as the street is very busy. This is controlled centrally so you can't change any settings other than the temperature.

Substantial serious issues with build quality that could be very dangerous! The owner told us they were closing in 6 months to do remedy work but I think this is irresponsible as some of the issues we personally dealt with could have seriously hurt someone less able or elderly.

Book at your own risk!

Room Tip: Book another hotel for at least the next 8 months until remedial work is carried out.

This boutique hotel was recommended to us by a friend who had stayed in one of the other Praktik hotels in Barcelona. The hotel has just recently opened (April), and is located between some great Gaudi sights (Sagrada Familia a 20 minute walk down the street, and Casa Mila and Casa Battlo just a block away).

The rooms are small, as they tend to be in Europe, but are well laid out and lovely. We ended up with a balcony room on the 2nd floor (room 204).

Of course one of the main features of the hotel is the bakery on the main floor. It's a busy bakery, with a window to the kitchen from the lobby sitting area. For 7 euros you can partake in a breakfast buffet of lovely baked good, cheeses, jams, ham, juice and coffee/tea.

We didn't stay at the hotel but we had lunch here today. The savory pastries were to die for and the sweet ones exquisite! The decor of the bakery is very casual & clean. Loved the plants and being able to watch the bakers at work. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Stayed there from 18-20 May with my sister.

It took us a while to find the hotel since we took the airport shuttle, A1, and alight at Placa de Catalunya. It's almost 20-30mins walk, along the never ending Passeig de Gracia, with our luggage and trying to navigate our way to the hotel. You will take the right turn from a pharmacy (one block after LV boutique) and the hotel will be in the street to your left one block down the side street. Although the hotel is between 2 metro stations, Pg de Gracia and Verdaguer, I don't think it'll be easier for me to take metro from Catalunya to either of these station. Having said that, once you settled down, the location is actually quite good, all high street brands are just round the corner. Ample restaurants to choose from.
Check in was smooth & at end of registration, the lady at the reception checked and managed to give us our room ahead of published check in time. That was nice after more than 15hrs of travelling.
Room & bathroom were spacious, double bed very comfy. Everything works in the room & wifi was functioning ok. Maybe we're just lucky.
A few suggestions though:
1) install shower curtain or partition between shower & toilet areas cos after shower, the whole area was really wet.
2) provide bottled drinking water although I was told it's safe to drink from tap, not everyone would be comfortable to drink from tap.
3) have more hooks in the bedroom & bathroom to hang our clothes & towels.
4) implement security for accessing room floors by tapping room card in elevator only since I don't see any security personnel at night and the street tend to be very quiet & deserted at night.

Hotel staff had been very responsive to my queries prior to arrival and I'm very happy with my stay. I will definitely recommend the hotel to my friends.

Stayed May 2014, travelled with friends
