Recent guest reviews

Great staff, convenient breakfast. Less touristy feel. Coffee tea water whenever. Great area if you like walking, trains, metro.

Cute boutique hotel. Rooms are small but meet the basic needs. Clean. No real division between bedroom and bathroom, didn't bother my husband and I, but wouldn't work for non-couples. Can hear everything in the hallway, but not a lot of foot traffic in the hallway either. Great location! A lot of restaurants within walking distance. Nice little space with free water, etc. My favorite was the vending machine that had half bottles of Frexinet!

It was located in a nice area with cafes and shops just a few feet away. The rooms were clean and tidy and very modern looking. Our room had a balcony which was nice to look out onto the street below. The staff was very nice and helpful and bilingual.

The Chic & Basic Born in Barcelona was fabulous. A great location in the Gothic district and close to so many stores, restaurants, etc. The staff was very friendly, and we loved the "Help Yourself" amenity. We will definitely be staying again. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at in Europe. Perfect for a couple looking for a little fun.

Hotel was clean,and in a safe area, we were able to communicate with staff.... selling point with hotel is their high tech TV/computer set up with internet connection... ours didn't work... we came in on a Sat. morning and they couldn't get someone out there to fix the problem til monday afternoon.. we checked out the next morning... the TV/computer controls the tv, music,internet, computer,.... with out it , the room was just plain small and very quiet! Up side, they have coffee and internet in lounge... few chairs nothing more.. they also had a small gym!
