After staying the weekend in Madrid I travelled to Barcelona with the high speed Reve train, I can’t believe how great it is to travel with these trains and how everything is really well organised and easy to find at the huge Madrid Antocha station. After drinking lots of coffee on the train and working a bit on my pictures we arrived in Barcelona city centre after 2.45 hours, so much faster then taking a plane from Madrid to Barcelona.
For the rest of my stay in Spain Praktik hotels kindly offered me accommodation in their Barcelona hotels. Praktik Garden hotel is located in a early 1900 century building in the Eixample district, I am staying in one of the 4 Garden rooms that are recently renovated by Internationally acclaimed interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán, who decorated the hotel paying attention to every detail. There is a beautiful desk to work from and a small lounge corner and a French balcony with a street view.
The blue ceramic bathroom is the most beautiful bathroom I saw in any hotel I stayed in so far, and I am really appreciating it’s high pressure rain-effect shower with the heath in Barcelona. The floor mosaics are coming back in black and white on the balcony’s of the other rooms, this hotel is full of little details for interior design lovers.
