I was struck by the The Praktik’s advertising, with a particularity in innovation which becomes interesting. The hotels under “low cost” model are common, but in this case, The Praktik Hotel offers a lower cost without sacrificing the quality of a hotel in its class even offering services such as free wireless and spacious beds. Let’s see how they have done for, so that paying 50 € you can find a good hotel in the center of Barcelona.
1. Self – service
This concept has been implemented on gas stations that sell you cheaper fuel in exchange for or having a firefighter who assists you, but you pay with your credit card and serve alone.
In this case, the Hotel Praktik has implemented a reception system in which there isn’t a manager of jelly hair, but an ATM where you pay with your card, receive your keys and pass directly to your room. Ideal for those who travel for work and the least they want is wasting their time only by receiving a key, of course, this implies reduction of operating costs that are transferred to customers.
2. Do not give what you don’t need
The Praktik Hotel has eliminated unnecessary aspects, for travelers who are rushed and often use the room only to sleep a few hours.
You receive a clean room, and as a rule, a waitress daily cleans it in the morning. However if you think not necessary this service, you can ask for not to do it and you will be deducted € 5 per day. Perhaps many do not look like this idea, but in practice, frequent travelers for working reasons will find that their rooms do not occupy clean everyday and in many cases just arriving … you have to continue working.
3. Minimum Spaces
Another aspect that this hotel has taken advantage is the spaces reduction, bathrooms are also small but the beds are spacious. There aren’t closets but a bookshelf and several hangers, attached to the wall, flat screen televisions reduce volume that would occupy devices embedded in a closet.
In short, these low-cost strategies end up solutions for the provision of accommodation services at lower prices. So if you’re in Barcelona and want to save some money, The Praktik is the alternative.
