Stayed at the C&B Ramblas 3 years in a row, for MWC. The location is great, the staff are friendly, rooms are clean, and pricing is ok for the season. On the other hand, rooms are tiny and facilities are really basic, making it a challenging for a business traveler.

On my third visit to Barcelona for a night break we stayed here. What can I say it is perfectly situated off las Ramblas and near to bars and restaurants. The port is only a few minutes away as transport links. The hotel is quirky with a retro feel to it . The decor is unusual with the bedroom doors... More

We enjoyed a three night from Saturday of February 2015 (Valentines day) and I have to say this is an excellent hotel. The location is superb step outside the entrance turn left walk for about a minute and you are at the bottom of The Ramblas which is the main tourist strip. You will also find a underground station here... More

Set in a fantastic location just off the bottom of Ramblas, this hotel was clean, stylish and had everything we needed for a trip to Barcelona. The room even had a little kitchenette which was great and the balcony was a nice touch too. There was a small problem when we arrived as their booking system was off line but... More

Amazing place to stay. Value for money as its near all attractions and metro lines. Only problem was the tv in the room. But we had an iPad so all good. So much to do so hardly spent time in our room. Friendly staff.

We (three girls in our mid-twenties) stayed at Chic and Basic in January of 2015. We were on a four day stay and it was very affordable, clean, and in a great location. We stayed in a three bed room and it worked out perfectly for what we were looking for. I would definitely come back here.

I went on a girly trip to Barcelona for my friend's 40th and we stayed at Chic & Basic for 2 nights. The reception area was very retro and quite nice, but the rooms were cramped and very "basic". The beds were tiny and not particularly comfortable. The bathroom was okay but there was no natural light in ours so... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Warm welcome, helpful & attentive staff. Comfortable well appointed room. Breakfast was good value & plentiful. The hotel is great, clean, quirky & an excellent base for exploring the city - just minutes walk from Las Ramblas & the Harbour area. Will definitely chose to stay here again given the opportunity to return to Barcelona

Stayed here for one night on route to cruise port.Room for 3 people was very clean and comfortable with a lovely shower room. Breakfast was extra but good value for money. Good location and fairly central to tourist areas. Hotel foyer very unusual and stylish. Hotel staff helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay again and recommend for both couples and... More

Staying in El Raval

Neighborhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
