From Place To Space: Praktik Bakery Hotel In Barcelona

October 13, 2014 0


What happens when you combine the city’s best bakery and a stylish hotel? A city traveler’s dream comes true! Ok, at least in my case. A few weeks ago I spent five days in Barcelona, Spain, and booked a room in the pretty new Praktik Bakery Hotel in the Eixample area of the Catalan metropolis. If I had to sum up my three strongest impressions of the hotel, it would be: the best chocolate croissant, fabulous indoor plants, cool room design. 

In Barcelona you will find a total of four Praktik hotels: the Praktik Bakery, the Praktik Garden, the Praktik Rambla and the Praktik Vinoteca (opening this Wednesday). Each hotel has a special theme but one fact is mutual to all of them: a strong sense for design.

My room in the Praktik Bakery Hotel was pretty small but abound with cool and urban design. I loved the all white setting with stark black industrial wall lightings and the blue tiles as a contrast in the entrance and bath area. But the real highlight was downstairs in the entrance area: Barcelona’s best bakery: Baluard.

Waking up in the morning and stepping out of the room was a treat already – I could smell the fresh bread and croissants even on the sixth floor! And every day started with a scrumptious breakfast in the wonderful bakery – warm croissants, fresh bread, fruits, coffee, juice – it couldn’t get any better! And you could watch the baker working on the fresh supply directly through a glass wall. 

Apart from the design and the great bakery, I was totally smitten by the abundance of indoor plants. The entire back wall of the bakery was covered in various indoor plants giving the space a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The Praktik Bakery Hotel is located in downtown Barcelona and I could see the famous Sagrada Familia cathedral right out of my room window. If you are planning a city trip to Barcelona any time soon, I recommend you have a close look at the Praktik Hotels – you won’t regret it!

Happy new week!

    I love Barcelona! It is full of beautiful bakerys and “pastisseries” where to buy fantastic bread and pastries 🙂 We book a room in a hostel very near one of them, and it was definitely a good choice, we could have breakfast there every day!
