Nice hotel, great location, right in the centre of where you want to be. Good value for money too. We stayed for three nights but only had breakfast on one day at the hotel, very nice. Easy to get to from the airport as well.

I stayed at Chic and Basic Ramblas while on vacation in Barcelona. I was impressed by the cleanliness and comfort of the rooms. I was most impressed by the front desk staff who went out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located near a subway station and is located in a fun part...

It's actually a great place to stay, so I'll start by saying... if you're looking for a good price, great service, and interesting location... stay here. The hotel was clean, and the people at the front door were amazing. We were a little lost, and they came out, let us drive our car up to the front to drop off... More

This is the second visit to this Hotel and we were not disappointed. Our stay was for 7 nights. Our room was on the 6th floor looking towards the Harbour, also we had a large balcony. Our room was bright and airy with ample space for hanging our clothes. The room was cleaned to perfection every day. Although we only... More

Walking into this boutique hotel you are met by a DJ and a Classic Seat 600 in the foyer, letting you know immediately this is a trendy place. Staff are friendly. Very centrally located 1 min from the Ramblas. And reasonably priced for its location, with standard amenities in the room. However rooms are small, but when in Barcelona you... More

Friends had given us high expectations for Chic and Basic Ramblas, and the hotel surpassed these expectations. Here are a few things we enjoyed about it: (1) The unfailing friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at the desk, always available with answers to questions in any language. (2) The bright, clean feel of the room, full of light (ours even... More

This hotel is an ideal location to La Rambla. The lobby is really cool, the rooms are nice and the service was great and very helpful. The only down side to this hotel was very small elevator not enough room. Also the area outside the hotel is a little shady and the view from the room isn't the best. If... More

Thanks to a special opportunity, we had a lovely room with kitchenette, on the 6th floor with an open balcony at a very good price. We found the service to be excellent, very friendly, very helpful. The room we were in was spotless, and cleaned beautifully every morning. The location is really excellent, off the foot of the Ramblas, 40m... More

Amazing Hotel, not too far from the airport either! We got the Aerobus followed by the Metro to Dressanes station and the hotel was then about a 30 second walk from there. The hotel is also about a 45 second walk to Las Ramblas and it is also close to the harbour, with the beach about a 20 minute walk... More

A cute and somehow unique design concept which is unfortunately not very well kept. Maintenance seems not top priority here. Compare to the quite high price for a 3* property I would say this place is average. (over EURO 1'100.- for 8 nights in a Standard Room) However, the Location is great and you couldn't ask for more. Everything is... More

Dear guest, We are happy to hear that you appreciate our design and concept. We would like to inform you that the season you visited us was the highest of all year, including an important congress. You will find much lower rates in the slow season. Maintenance is a top priority for us; as a matter of fact, the aircon... More
