Stayed at this hotel for a 3 night city break Cannot fault the location very central! Staff were also very friendly As expected the rooms are very basic and minimal I understand it's a central city location, however, rooms were very noisy! Not just with street noise but people in the corridors and cleaners in the morning, unfortunately we visited...

We stayed there for four nights. The hotel is near to the metro station and this is very comfortable,near to the hotel you have Barceloneta ,the Colombus Statue and the famous Ramblas. The center of Barcelona is very easy to walk. The hotel itself was ok,nothing special,but it was decent. You don't have view from the hotel because it surrounded...

The hotel is what it's name says, basic but clean and tidy. The location was great just off La Rambla near the port end so great for exploring. Having said all of that, I think it's probably the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed in! Don't know if it's the guests that were there when we were or if it's just...

We have just returned form a weekend in Barcelona.... What a beautiful City it is! We wanted somewhere really central, and after a lot of research on Trip Advisor( I'm a fuss pot!) we opted for Chic and Basic.What an absolute find! The hotel is perfect in every way. Spotlessly clean, with great decor. The staff could not do more...

The room was too basic, the only thing that kept me from making trouble at the reception was its low price comparing to other options for that weekend. We had a room for 4 and our friends were in a double room which was much better. The shampoos and stuff in the bathroom were a good brand but this was...

The hotel is perfectly located, 3 min walk from Las Ramblas, close to the metro and the sea. As the name suggests, the rooms are basic, but with all the amenities needed and a great sense of humor. Rooms come with a small kitchen, great shower, comfortable beds and free wifi. Restaurant attached, comfortable setting with chairs, pool table, bar,...

As advertised, this place is basic. Certainly they make an effort to be chic. The staff are friendly, the location great (right at the foot of the ramblas) and it is clean. Downsides: spotty elevator. Overall a clean basic option in a great location.

Chic or not is very personal, but it's no doubt a basic hotel. So don't expect much. The Hotel is centrally located at a good price. We took a taxi from Airport to Hotel & needed to walk a little bit. However, when we left, we asked the Hotel to help arrange a taxi, and it did stop right in...

Located on the side corner of the main and buzzing street of Las Ramblas, this hotel provides value for money. We booked for the 2 night stay and were happy with our stay.

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
