Located in a historic building on Madrid's Grand Via, the Hotel Praktik Metropol bills itself as a design hotel with low-cost prices (rooms start at €50). With the tagline "Less is luxe," designer Lazaro Rosa-Violan of Contemporain Studio kept it simple: white painted paneled rooms with practical Shaker-like storage pegs, simple cream coverlets with linen pillows, and tiled baths with pedestal sinks.
