They had a unique welcome pack that makes this hotel distinct in terms of service and sense of humour! The toilet room is really really tiny though.

Pros: Cool ambient lighting in every room; clean rooms; great location in El Born (approx. 5 min walk to metro); FREE bottled water and coffee machine Cons: Small rooms; virtually no counter space in the bathroom Overall: a great place to stay, especially for young people and couples who don't mind living in close quarters for a few days

Well located somewhat away from the Ramblas, thus quieter on the outside. Very ecclectic design, but functional, if you want a typical hotel with typical facilities, this is not the place for you. Great if you are looking for something different. Internet access, coffee and water free 24hrs a day which is a bonus.

Originalità sicura e quindi un po' di compromessi con la praticità bisogna accettarla. il servizio gratuito the caffè frigo andrebbe migliorato. la colazione è improponibile, carissima e scarsissima e anche un po avariata (yogurt) ...è una incredibile caduta di stile questa specie di ristorante con condizionatore altissimo bicchieri scheggiati personale burbero e avanzi di mangiare. meglio andare la bar di fronte, si paga la metà ed è fornitissimo e gentilissimo! peccato, tutto il resto è raccomandabilissimo una bella esperienza, ...originale la doccia in mezzo alla stanza e le tende che cambiano colore con il telecomando... wow!

This was my second, and far superior, trip to Barcelona. This hotel and area are less of a "travelers" experience and more for the "in-the-know/local" experience. Though the hotel is high design it is also very comfortable and a break from the bustling city. We were lucky and had an terrace off the room which was an outstanding addition to the stay. (If we didn't have that I might have felt like I was trapped in a nightclub.) The public lounge area--where you can get coffee or use the internet for free--is convenient and a place to meet other guests. I saw many couples and just a few business travelers at the hotel. The location is a very short walk from Estació de França but a serious haul to Estació de Sants (if you are using the metro). Barcelona on its own is very cool, but El Born is very hip--with great shops, food, and close to the beach--which met my travel expectations perfectly. The best part of the hotel is a small guide book they give you to Barcelona as part of a welcome pack. There is also an extra-small workout room and restaurant that we did not use, but seemed nice. Nearby is a small grocery and Born seems to be the location where the 20-something crowd hangs out at night. Though the hotel is above my price range, I would stay in this hotel and this neighborhood again in a heartbeat.

si consiglia di optare per una stanza "large" Gradito il servizio di caffé the acqua gratis. Albergo consigliato a gente di "spirito" giovanile. Arredamento delle stanze particolare.

We had a fantastic stay at Chic and Basic. I love the decorations of the hotel and it's super-cool feeling. The White Bar next door was also very chic.

We booked an L-Size room for 3 nights but as these were full, we were upgraded an XL-room without more costs. The room offered a balcony on top. Everything is really concentrated on the things needed, but that all in a very good way. It's hard to see something from the city if u have such a pleasant room. All pics completely speak for themselves. We can't comment the breakfast as there are hundreds of possibilities to get some close to the hotel. Free internet, coffee/ tea at all time. There's a little unnecessary room for workout offered (more basic than needed ;) Very nice staff also, they seem to be proud of working for this place. Conclusion: an ideal place for a short intense stay in BCN, not only to sleep, but with tendicies to settle down in a room.

Very nice room. Very good bathroom. The bed was also great. The staff was very helpful and welcoming - borrowing city guides, helping with tips. The room where computer, internet, coffee and tea where available was very pleasant.

We stayed at Chic & Basic for part of our honeymoon. We were greeted with a "Congratulations" from the manager and a bottle of cava waiting in our room. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay. The lighting concept in the rooms is a bit cheesy, but in a silly, fun kind of way. The only minor issue we had was that the housekeeping could be a little more thorough considering the rooms are entirely white and EVERYTHING is noticeable. It wasn't exactly dirty, but the white leather furniture was a bit soiled looking as were the walls. There were also some visible cobwebs hanging around the ceiling. Also, our air conditioning wasn't working when we arrived and it took quite some time to get it fixed and get the room cooled off. The location is completely fantastic, but the best thing in my opinion... the "help yourself" area with free, serve yourself coffee and free bottled water. Also, we booked a "Large" room and it was pretty tiny. I wouldn't recommend anything smaller than that unless you are traveling solo.

young , fun, creative idea...this hotel is really moving to the new era..i liked the most the salon, with the nespresso machine, tea, water and desktop internet, which was so practical, generous, 24/24... friendly feeling... the personel is too young, i think the must be more interactive with clients...coz the style ofthe hotel is young and hip...so a small smile, a small chitchat...would catch clients hearts ;)
