Hotel Praktik Bakery In Barcelona Mixes Cool Design With Warm Bread From Its Own Bakery | 26-06-2015

Who needs an alarm clock when you can wake up in your hotel to the intoxicating aroma of warm bread right out of the oven? For those of us who just have to have carbs in the morning, this could be heaven. Whether you're a guest for the night or a passerby on the street, the Hotel Praktik Bakery in Barcelona aims to lure you inside, not only by the sights and smells of warm bread and treats, but also by its cool contemporary design. The Hotel Praktik Bakery, and its Baluard Bakery, makes the analogy that no two breads are alike just as not two hotels are alike. We can't say we ever thought about it that way, but it's an interesting premise for the hotel's design. This is after all, Barcelona, and there is artistry in everything, including and in particular, bread making. The hotel's interiors were created by Lazaro Rosa-Violan, whose talents in boutique hotel design include Hotel Cort (Mallorca,) Hotel Do (Barcelona,) and Only You (Madrid.) The design studio is also working on the upcoming Hotel Cotton House, due to open in 2015 and already nabbed by the Autograph Collection by Marriott. The Baluard Bakery and adjoining hotel common areas are clearly the feature of this design hotel. These public spaces exhibit an eclectic modernist style, featuring brick walls, exposed steel framing and industrial style lighting. Furnishings are sleek Barcelona modern - they go with everything. The hotel offers 74 rooms, cosy in size and in a predominantly white palette (often the case when cosy in size.) Some cool details include two-way adjustable lighting and geometry inspired blue tile in the bathroom. Guest amenities include flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi, coffee maker, and air conditioning. The hotel also offers beach towels, parking, airport transfers and a luggage scale. Fortunately, the bread you take with you won't add much to your luggage weight limit. Rates from €60.50 (windowless rooms) and from €82.50 (exterior rooms)
