Better options in Barcelona.

I made reservations at the Praktik Bakery for their "Grand Opening" based on reviews from their other two hotels. Unfortunately, the opening wasn’t so grand, as the hotel and touted lobby/bakery (the main reason I selected this particular hotel) were still under construction. (I wouldn’t have even considered this a "soft opening.") Having worked in the service industry, understand that best laid plans don’t always work out, so I can understand a few issues upon opening, but I think it’s imperative to have solid customer service regardless of the situation, and I felt the hotel’s employees did not have it together. I was not offered the complimentary glass of champagne other guests were when I checked in or came to the front desk to address various issues (safe not working, internet out, broken mirror). When I asked them about the celebratory drinks later they just stated, "Oh, we’re out. You can get a drink next door at the bar." (It would have been classy if they comped it.) No one ever asked how my stay was while I was there or when I checked out. I overhead another couple inquire about using a rest room when they picked up their left luggage, and they just answered they didn’t have one in the lobby for guests to use, and since they had already checked out, they were out of luck. Again, I understand the stress of their first week of opening, but you really need to take care of your customers or they won’t return. Despite little regard for their guests and construction noise during the day, my room was comfortable with lots of natural light, and it was a great location. However, based on this experience, I think there are better options in Barcelona.

Hotel description

This is a unique idea to Barcelona, if not the whole world! The ground floor of the Praktik Bakery is home to the hotel’s own bakery, which supplies the upstairs Bed & Breakfast not only with fresh bread, but also with a wonderful smell and a fantastic home-from-home feel. When it comes to the look and feel, the bakery and the hotel also blend together seamlessly. From the street you can see the baker’s oven through the large window while the reception and bakery counter sit side by side in the large entrance hall that oozes industrial charm. The breakfast area at the hotel is also located in the cozy lobby. The original design by internationally known interior designer Lazaro Rosa-Violán lends the hotel its unique flair.
Bed & Breakfast hotel: Breakfast at the hotel & dinner in town
The Praktik Bakery is a bed & breakfast hotel which means it does not have its own restaurant. But not far from the hotel you’ll find plenty of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines. The reception team will happily make you a table reservation.
