There are very few hotels in the world that feel homely, smell of freshly baked bread and give you that instant warm and fuzzy feeling. Most of hotels today are impersonal, business like and rather cold which is something that cannot be said for the establishment that we are presenting you today – hotel Praktik Bakery, located in stunning Barcelona.
To say that Praktik Bakery is different is an understatement. The element of surprise is definitely there with the hotel having its own bakery as the focal point. And not any old bakery, mind you, but the prestigious Baluard Bakery owned by Anna Bellsola. Anna comes from a long line of bakers and has been trained in Italy and France. When you taste her bread, you’ll understand why she has a huge cult following.
The hotel itself is located in the 19th century Eixample quarter, known for modernist architecture which includes Gaudi’s works. It has 74 elegant rooms with art-deco inspired bathrooms. Celebrated architect Lazaro Rosa-Violán has designed the hotel’s rooms in a simple, yet polished and refined way. White cotton textiles, painted brickwork and bright yellow walls all add to the sophisticated feel of the hotel. Of course, the rooms have everything that guests need to feel as comfortable as possible – safe, hairdryer, concierge service, coffee machine, free Wi-Fi, soft pillows, cozy beds and a high-pressure shower. Added bonus is that all rooms are soundproof.
So, look no further for accommodation if you are planning a well-deserved, quiet, out-of-the-box holiday in one of the most beautiful European cities. There isn’t a hotel in the world where guests wake up to the sweet smell of cinnamon buns and almond croissants.
