A lovely gesture ❤ Location of the hotel is great with lots of bars and taps restaurants within walking distance . The Born area and gothic quarter...

An absolute gem. Admittedly not so close to the Rambla...but for me that was a blessing. The area is a little retro but hip at the same time. That does not mean run down by any stretch of the imagination. Winding streets with Flamenco, little restaurants, shops by the billion. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Myself and my best friend just got back from Barcelona on a girly weekend away. We had decided to stay in the Chic & Basic Hotel as we didn't have much budget and the reviews we'd read were pretty good! I have to say, on the whole the hotel was pretty perfect. We had requested twin beds and got them,...

I took my husband for his birthday for a short trip to Barcelona. I was looking for a hotel near to all main point (La Rambla, Sea and so on). And the Chick and Basic was the best choice! Just few min from Gothic Quarter, 10 min to Rambla, 20 to the sea (but the way is just breathtaking, this...

Born is a great location and place to stay for a short break - Barcelona is pretty compact so you are within easy walking distance of a lot of key attractions - my not to be missed sights include the delicious tapas at the Mercat de Santa Caterina food market and a promenade along the Barceloneta beach. The hotel itself...

Kudos to the designers who conceived these whimsical and surprising rooms! Our room was clever and comfortable. We enjoyed analyzing the engineering that was evident in the floor plan. We had noisy neighbors, which is no fault of the hotel. The reception staff was welcoming and helpful. The Born district is lively; restaurants and shops are nearby. Most sights were...

Nice hotel in the heart of El Born. Short distance to anything you might need, but still quiet from traffic. Can be a little noisy at night, in the weekend, as the walls are super thin. You can hear everything happening in the rooms next door and in the hallways. The staff is super friendly and helpfull. The rooms are...

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more   less
