I was struck by the advertising of The Praktik, with a particularity in innovation that becomes interesting. Hotels under the "low cost" model are common, but in this case, The Hotel Praktik offers you a lower cost without sacrificing the quality of a hotel of its category, while still offering services such as free wireless access and spacious beds. Let's see how they have done so that from € 50 you can find a good hotel in the center of Barcelona.
This concept has been implemented by gas stations, which sell you the most comfortable fuel in exchange for or have a firefighter to serve you but you pay with your credit card and you serve yourself.
In this case, Hotel Praktik has implemented a reception system in which there is no jelly-haired manager, but an ATM where you pay with your card, receive your keys and go directly to your room. Ideal for those who travel for work and the least they want is to waste their time just to receive a key, of course, this implies a reduction in operating costs that are transferred to clients.
2 They do not give you what you do not need
The Hotel Praktik has eliminated unnecessary aspects, for travelers who are in a hurry and who frequently use their room only to sleep a few hours.
You get a clean room, and as a general rule, a maid cleans it every day in the morning. However, if you do not think this service is necessary, you can request that they not do it and they will deduct € 5 for each day. This idea may not seem to many to many, but in practice, frequent travelers for work reasons will find that their rooms do not occupy daily cleaning and in many cases you barely get ... to continue working.
3 Minimum spaces
Another aspect that this hotel has taken advantage of is the reduction of spaces, the bathrooms are small, also the rooms, although the beds are large. There are no cabinets but a shelf and several hangers, flat screen televisions attached to the wall reduce the volume that built-in appliances would occupy inside a closet.
In short, these low-cost strategies end up being solutions for the provision of hosting services at a lower price. So if you will be in Barcelona, and you want to save some money, El Praktik is the alternative.
