We had a great time at Chic & Basic, the guys on reception were super from the moment we arrived - they gave us directions and tips about some quirky bars and good restaurants that I asked about and also offered some more to visit too. The hotel was quirky clean and comfortable in the cool Born area, breakfast at...

Very nice hotel in trendy part of Barcelona. Walking distance to Placa Reial and Rambla, and the beach. Nice clean room with balcony, good shower. Impressive mood lighting. Free Nespresso, fresh tea and water. Easy access to taxis. Enters the top 5 of my best hotels ever.

This place has a very cool atmosphere and very trendy design features... we loved the sleek black & white decor, with LED coloured lights everywhere, the private balcony with modern furniture, the glassed-in shower in the middle of the bedroom. The hotel also has a common area called "Be Yourself" and an adjacent "Help Yourself" area with free coffee, tea,...

This is a cool, funky and chic hotel in a great location. We found this place after wandering around looking for new accommodations for the remainder of our stay in Barcelona. It's across the street from the Chocolate Museum! Stephan and his staff were attentive and welcoming from the moment we walked through the door. Our room was bright, airy...

Booked the XL room for a special occasion for myself and my boyfriend and we were both very excited about staying in the hotel. The website leads you to believe that this is the largest room available and we thought it would be very spacious and the nicest room they had. However, the room was not very big and the...

The location of Chic & Basic Born is great. We found the Born area to be probably the best to walk around in Barcelona. Near restaurants, the beautiful Ciutadella Park, within walking distance to Las Ramblas, metro and everything you need. The hotel is very hip and spacey, perfect for couples and people who love design. We were worried it...

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
