 "Trip to Barcelona, stay in Chic&Basic Born"
Great hotel, exactly what we wanted, lovely staff and absolutely perfect location. Would recommend to anyone. Tips: Casa Delfin served our favourite Tapas; Cervezeria Catalunya served the best Cava and our fave place was Sagrada Familia.

 "Wonderful Stay"
Fun, quirky hotel with excellent staff. The room was very clean, and the location is wonderful for walking around the Born district and right across the street from Ciutadella park. I would stay there again.

 "Nice stay and improvements"
We really enjoyed the time we spent at the hotel we had a really nice stay in barcelona. It could be perfect with some improvement : There was only one storages...for two person it's not enough and I wonder if you could add curtains on the window.

 "Chic and Basic Born Barcelona"
Great hotel, superbly located, friendly and helpful staff. Would stay there again. The hip Born area can easily be discovered by foot and the old city is within easy walking distance. Stayed in a superior room with balcony access. Highly recommended!

 "Great Location but......"
The hotel is in a GREAT location and lovely staff but that is the only thing it has going for it. The walls are so thin that you can hear the speed of the hairdryer in the next room, you can hear people talking( arguing). There is a HUGE problem with drains and the smell permeates through the hotel. We had to be moved form out first room. The second room was better but the smell was still in the corridor. Shame because it is a beautiful building.

 "Chis & Basic"
The room was chic and basic indeed. A little more space was needed for the two of us, with the toilet itself as the only place of privacy. No tea and coffee in the room either, which would have been handy. However, the hotel was always clean and smelling nice. It had a cool interior and was designed chicly. There was plenty of varieties of teas and coffees and water in the communal chill out room. The room was only clean and it was quiet enough at night. the hotel was located in a nice area and was easy to get to from the airport.

 "Taking time out in Born--minus 3 kids!!"
This hotel is in a brilliant area near the beach [Barceloneta] , 5minseasy walk from Estacio de Franca [ trainride away from airport with one change in Passeig de Gracia or Sants]. It is also near a gorgeous park--Parc de Ciutadela. It is only about 15 mins from the Ramblas but far enough to be away from all the madness! IWell situated for Picasso Museum. There is a brilliant cocktail bar round the corner from the hotel on Carrer de Rec -24 called JUANRA FALCES formerly known as GIMLETS.It was full of friendly locals. Gimlet [pronounced like gym] cocktail highly recommended. They do a mean G+T too! Found a great bar called BARROC further down on Carrer Rec. Barman looks like Frank Zappa!! They do an amazing glass of sangria--better in a glass than a jug. Hotel room small but adequate. Shower good, shower gel lovely and bed extremely comfortable. Bed is also very big--great for us as my husband is 6ft 4 !! Everything minimal and painted white-lovely.My only criticism would be that the walls could do with a lick of white paint .Other than that hotel was fabulous and we would definitely stay there again. This is the best accommodation we have stayed in whilst in Barcelona as we have been to Barcelona quite a few times.The hotel receptionist was lovely--I think he was calles Raul. Visited CASA BATTLO for the first time---amazing we thought and worth the 18 Euros entrance fee. Barcelona never ceases to surprise us and give us a brilliant time.

Trip to Barcelona, stay in Chic&Basic Born

Chic & Basic Born Barcelona is more than just accommodation, it is a concept, in a great city, in an awesome neighbourhood. Relax in the chill-out zone, or have a drink in the bar. This is a truly original hotel in Barcelona. Located nearby you will find Ciutadella Park, the zoo, Barceloneta beach and the Moll de la Fusta. Ten minutes away you can find Plaza Sant Jaume, Las Ramblas and Plaza Cataluña.

The Chic & Basic Born hotel is located in the Born district, a multifaceted neighborhood: it offers very powerful cultural buildings such as the Picasso Museum, the Textile Museum, the Church of Santa Maria del Mar, the França Train Station, the old Born Market, to name but a few. This is an area in which the most original boutiques of the city have flourished. These are small shops where you can acquire new and promising designs, selected brand collections, the latest accessories and more. This area has become the reference point for the most innovative restaurants and fashionable bars.

Chic & Basic Born Barcelona is housed in a century-old building, with 22 feet-high ceilings, colored curtains and magnificent decoration. The rooms are all equipped with a crystal shower at the center of the room, a lighting system which can transform your room in various colours.
