Reviewed 16 March 2013

Was lucky to book this hotel just two days before the start of MWC - alternative vacant options at that time could be found either in 50+ kilometers from city center (in Granollers and other outskirts) or at a whopping 800 EUR per night (offer from nearby INDIGO boutique hotel). Given above mentioned situation, I was prepared for the worst...

Both my daughters and son had stayed here and encouraged us to do the same. The position is excellent just near the Estació de França train station and handy for everywhere. It's very unusual with the changing ambience you do yourself with the different lighting. We also liked the lounge with free coffee, tea and biscuits and of course wi-fi....

Very good location, very-very friendly staff, comfortable and quaint rooms, big lobby with free tea/coffe and nice organization of space. Fantastic combination of ancient and modern buildings of the original interior, tipical for Barcelona in total. Really, by my experience... I want back here with my boyfriend ;), it's very romantic place.

I just got back from a week long holiday in Barcelona where my wife and I stayed at the C&B born. It certainly is an odd and quirky hotel, the customizable lights in the room, the lack of cupboard space, the exposed shower are some of the things that make this hotel unusual. That being said, we had read the...

Chic & Basic is a simple concept, well executed. The hotel has plenty of architectural style and while not quite as polished as high-end hotels, it has plenty of really nice touches (such as fun multi-coloured lights in the rooms) which really make an experience of it. The help yourself kitchen is a great feature with a Nespresso machine and...

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
