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

We were looking for a hotel close to the port for easy access to the cruise terminal. We got more than that. A funky hotel, clean, comfortable, close to the train & port & with a satisfying & tasty breakfast.

Stayed here for four days in June. Great location close to a metro station and the marina. Front desk staff were professional and helpful and the whole place had a good atmosphere. Our room had kitchen facilities and they were lots of opportunity to eat close by. Would definitely go back there.

The concept of the hotel is great and when you walk into the lobby it looks like such a fun hotel. The location is great at the bottom of the Ramblas and a short walk to the beach. However, for the price, I paid for my stay, I was definitely underwhelmed. I had paid for a superior double with terrace... More

We paid quite a lot to stay in this hotel for a romantic weekend, but the room was so basic and shabby that there was nothing romantic about it at all. The bathroom was especially horrible. My advice would be to avoid this hotel. Barcelona is full of other, nicer hotels, trust me.

Anyone wanting to stay handy to La Ramblas cannot go past Chic & Basic. 2 minutes walk to the action and tucked behind other building gave us quiet , restful sleep. Large modern rooms and kitchen facilities made this hotel a great find. Breakfast down stairs if chosen was a great start to the day. Priced to suit most budgets... More

I really appreciated this hotel, the location is very good, near restaurants, night life (if that is what you are looking for) and on the beginning of Las Ramblas (the Marina side of it). Staff was always available and ready to help. Hotel room was very comfortable and looked brand new. Didn't catch the breakfast but a friend that did... More

My daughter and I stayed at C&B Ramblas four nights in mid-July. We were wrapping up a wonderful two weeks in Spain and the hotel, the staff, and the city provided a most pleasant closure to our trip. The staff people, whenever we approached the desk, were always cheerful and helpful. The actual desk was cheerful, bring constructed of stacked... More
