Couched within an architectural gem and seated along one of the prettiest streets in the Catalonian capital, Hotel Praktik Rambla boasts sublime interiors and remarkably affordable rates.
Undergoing a complete refurbishment in 2009, each of the hotel’s 43 rooms highlight the supreme design of the host building the Casa Climent Arola, a modernist jewel built at the beginning of the 19th century, with mosaic floors and floral details contrasting nicely against delicate furnishings, green glass tiles and modern light fixtures.
Offering three types of rooms (single, double and double twin) starting at 80€ and featuring all the necessities (TV, bathroom, WiFi), its the location itself which is the drawcard here, chosen as a spot to visit by the Barcelona Tourism Board as part of its “Barcelona Walks Modernisme” and, of course, mere minutes from some spectacular monuments.
A small tip-soak up a bit of the local atmosphere (and drink in the building’s architecture) by booking the double room with a patio-facing balcony. Fronting on to a typical Eixample patio, this is the hotel’s biggest room and boasts the same rate as terrace rooms fronting on to Rambla Catalunya.
