Editorial review:

This completely renovated building has 31 strikingly white rooms with high ceilings and large beds. You can choose a room which is either small (S), medium (M) or large (L) and enjoy the ultra modern lightning and televisions. At the same time the hotel retains the charms of the original building and some of its architectural features like a marble staircase. Enjoy a drink in their all white bar.

        I ve visted bcn plenty of times and have stayed in all kind of accommodation. even in the chic abd basic apartments just down the road. the hotel was wonderful.the design and the location are definetely worth the stay. I highly recommend the hotel, although it should be a bit more on the less expensive side. the rooms have a "sexy" ambience. A slight default would be the noise entering the rooms from the street. a nice convenient addition is the serve yourself free of charge drinking water.

        probably to find a way to stop the street noise

        Very original approach in their branding & communication. Slick design! We loved the common area with free espresso machine, tea, water. The personalizing aspect in the room (colours) was great too. Comfortable bed.

        Sleeping in a room facing the street, especially on the weekend night was very loud with people partying outside. Also, the water temperature of the shower was not constant, it went from hold to cold without adjusting. Other than that, everything was great!

      • Couple
        7.8

        The relaxed environment with common area, coffee and fruit were great! The location was perfect for eating, shopping and walking.

        The room design looked very cool but was very difficult to maneuver in.

      • Couple

        Helpful staff. Cool design.

        Noisy doors in hallway. First night was woken up several times.

        Location is fantastic- easy to navigate the city from- great restaurants within a block. Very helpful english speaking staff. Enjoyed our stay.

      • Single
        9.2

        The atmosphere is unique...that s why everytime I m in barcelona I have to spend at least 1 or 2 nights here

        No wifi in the room

      • Older travelers
        5.8

        Excellent location close to lots of bars and restaurants, free supply of good coffee and water. Staff were friendly. Lights in rooms were interesting though the beaded curtains were irritating after a while.

        Room not very clean, horrible smell every time we used the shower. Very noisy from other guests just walking past - the sound insulation is non-existent. The finish of the rooms was very poor. No wifi in the room, had to use the communal area. We wouldn't ever go back.

      • Couple
        8.8

        The location is the best in Barcelona. And Stephane, who I assume is the hotel manager, could not have neen nicer.

        Thin walls. Bring ear plugs and you'll be fine.

        Location Location Location..near almost everything and not in a noisy section.Hotel has a unique atmosphere and nice amenities like free expresso.

        We had a great experience at Chic & Basic Born, the rooms are really different and cool and we really enjoyed our stay. The staff was fantastic and no question or request was difficult or not wanted. They gave us tips on places to go and bars to visit and they were totally right for us. We had a balcony towards the street and truly enjoyed a glass of cave there in the evenings. The location is right in the middle of the cozy old town and it was so easy to walk everywhere.

        The Hotel is different and so many Hotels aare so boring

        Good beds, nice atmosphere and creative design.

      • Couple
        7.4

        The Hotel was very unusual, we loved the decor and the ambiance. It was a great experience and the staff were superb.

        Tea, coffee etc was not in the room but in a large lounge upstairs. the bed was not that comfy, however we are very fussy and my husband has a bad back so for most people it may be fine - we would go back!

      • Couple
        7.8

        Loved the free coffee and tea!

        Stayed in a medium room and it was a bit small but was still ok for a short stay. Because of the design of the shower there was often water on the floor after it was used.

      • Couple
        7.0

        Staff at the reception, placement,

        Room is a bit unpractical, no place to put something. But for short stay 1-2 nights it is ok.
