Praktik Bakery Hotel, Barcelona is a boutique hotel that incorporates Baluard, the city’s best bakery.
What could be better than waking up to the smell of freshly baked bread?
The hotel is the work of local designer Lazaro Rosa-Violán and, though small, he has made it cheery with bright colors in the hallways and an airy whitewash in the rooms.
The artisanal bakery has a glass-walled view of bakers at work. Day and night, handmade boules and pastries being created by the team of local dough maven Anna Bellsolá, a third-generation baker.
Preparing for a day of Barcelona sight-seeing with the sweet addition of a pain au chocolat with your jamón, chorizo, and cheese at the breakfast buffet? That’s got to be a good thing.
