Walking down the dark hallway to the hotel’s lobby, lit only by old-fashioned torches and decorated with intricately carved stone pillars, I knew I had found somewhere special. Housed in a stunning 19th century building near the beginning of Rambla Catalunya, it was originally designed by Catalan architect Francesc de P. Villar i Carmona. The lobby is located in the central courtyard of the building, and looking up you’ll see the walls covered in elegant Baroque-style elements, carved floral Modernist motifs and wrought-iron balconies. Modern, yet still retaining its original character, rooms and public spaces feature high moulded ceilings, original mosaic floors and ornately carved wooden doors. Besides its stunning design, my favourite part was the old-fashioned reading room (with free tea and coffee making facilities) leading out onto a lovely terrace garden, complete with lemon and olive trees, comfy seating areas and a trickling fountain.

This is a wonderful Gothic townhouse. A great place to book for many reason. First the indoor is stunning. The walls are decorated with modernist/liberty motifs and the outdoor is an awesome common space, where you can refresh yourself from the time spent touring the wonderful city of Barcelona. Original tiles, iron work for the balconies, everything feels ancient and wonderful at the same time. The area is one of the best possible too: the Rambla de Catalunya is less touristy than the more known Ramblas, and here you can witness the real Barcelona style of living. The rooms are simple but extremely classy and elegant in their style, the service of the staff just lovely and present. I could not find anything that was not perfect. A real pleasure to witness that a building like this, full of history and beauty, can be enjoyed for a trip as an hotel. I would suggest to my dearest friend and parents also just to give a look inside, because is terrific.

This boutique hotel is small but gorgeous. History buffs will be interested to learn about the hotel’s history—once the home of a wealthy Catalan family, it was designed by Francisco de P. Villar I Carmona, the architect who was supposed to design La Sagrada Familia and ended up only designing the crypt, because, rumor has it, one of his young helpers, Antoni Gaudi, betrayed him. Staff are friendly and accommodating—they were happy to talk to me about upgrading a smaller standard room to something bigger and show me around. The library, sun room and wicker couches on the plant-filled terrace tempt you to stay in, and skip exploring the city---which would be a shame, because most of the big Barcelona attractions and neighborhoods like Born and Gaixample are all a short walk or metro ride away. The original Modernista tile flooring, ornate wooden doors and plaster moldings on ceilings are highlighted by modern touches like sleek metal light fixtures and dramatic blocked black and white paint choices. There's no food service upstairs, but there's a free coffee bar, and a fridge with ice for drinks.

This quirky hotel is found in the house of Climent Arola, a splendid Art Nouveau property originally built to house an elite family on the trendy Rambla de Catalunya. The property was recently renovated by award-winning Interior Designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán - enhancing the original features whilst adding an innovative touch. My favourite spot was the colourful terrace - a portion of peace on a busy boulevard. The Praktik Rambla has a range of rooms suitable for single travellers through to families, and food is served all day in the partner restaurant next door - try the yummy selection of tapas! The hotel holds a fabulous location on a street lined with restaurants, bars, cafes and boutique and popular branded stores. It is 5 minutes walk from Paseo de Gracia and Catalunya stations, and the famous La Rambla. I suggest eating sushi at nearby Futami, or enjoying coffee, cake and art at Cosmo Café/Gallery – both located on Carrer d’Enric Granados.

A very stylish and chic hotel, placed in the heart of Barcelona -away from the hussle and bussle of the Ramblas, but just a 5min walk from La Pedrera, La Casa Batllo, Plaça Catalunya and many major attractions. It was refurbished in a very modern and cosy style by designer Lazaro Rosa-Violan, maintaining its charm from the former modernist-style building. Best of it: its patio, wonderfully decorated with plants and ideal for a relaxing afternoon enjoying the nice weather and a glass of fresh orange-juice. Double rooms are big and elegant, and the staff is friendly and helpful. Praktik Rambla is simply delightful! Best option for a city break traveller like me :)
