Check In: Hotel Praktik Rambla

Barcelona, Spain

When the Hotel Praktik Rambla started following designtripper on Twitter, I clicked to check it out. Wow. The beautiful, ornate facades and decadent modern interiors by Lázaro Rosa-Violán are so old and romantic, and I spent a lot longer than I’d like to admit pouring over the kind of architectural detail nobody is skilled enough to create anymore. With wrap-around iron balconies overlooking Rambla de Cataluna, one of Barcelona’s most picturesque boulevards, the Praktik is a former residence designed by Catalan modernist  architect Francesc de P. Villar i Carmona. Inside, with encaustic patterned tile floors, emerald hues behind old heavy carved doors, soaring ceilings and mirrored partition walls, it’s no wonder they have complimentary Lomo cameras for their guests to use. And another pleasant surprise: Reasonable prices starting at $108 a night.
