Planted in the heart of the Barcelona’s modern Eixample neighborhood, a hidden oasis blossoms in the Mediterranean sun. Far from the chaos of La Rambla, visitors find peace and quiet in one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. The Praktik Garden Hotel in Barcelona is a secret find for the visitor looking to enjoy the heart of the city in a relaxed venue. In the garden at Barcelona's Praktik Garden Hotel.

The hotel’s starkly minimalist design focuses the guest’s attention on the large exterior garden.

There were also storage lockers on the main level to store larger bags out of the way. The bathroom at the Praktik Garden Hotel in Barcelona, Spain.
