These days tourists expect more from a budget hotel than a simple bed and a clean shower. And I have to admit I want a small extra as well. Finding hotels, hostels or guesthouses with a superb design which don’t cost you a fortune, is one of the things that makes me happy. The Praktik hotels succeeded cum laude in offering beautiful rooms on a budget.
Since a couple of years they’ve created hip hotel concepts in Madrid and Barcelona. Design hotels – I love their minimalistic style – in a good neighbourhood for reasonable prices. What more does a traveller want?
After the great success of Praktik Metropol (fantastic rooftop terrace!), Praktik Rambla (the most beautiful 19th century building) and Praktik Garden (great garden, what else did you expect?) they wanted more. They wanted to offer tourists more than just a room. So they expanded their project by opening Praktik Bakery and Praktik Vinoteca, their two newest hotels in Barcelona. The rooms of Praktik Bakery are situated right on top of their own bakery. Imagine waking up with the delicious smell of fresh bread and croissants. Sounds like heaven, isn’t it? Praktik Vinoteca is all about wine. Think about it as a winebar, where there happen to be some rooms as well. Ideal if you like to have an apero before you are heading out for dinner or if you like to experience a wine tasting. A dream for me and all other wine lovers.
Great concepts, cheap prices. What’s not to like about that?
