Stayed here with two friends in early September. Firstly the location is definitely the best place to be. We were only there for 3 full days but managed to navigate around really well and found you are pretty much central to where you need to be. The hotel room was very basic but exactly what we needed and to be... More

We stayed at Chic and Basic Zoo in Barcelona. The place was perfect, clean, comfortable and the people at reception were very, very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place. Thanks for making our stay in Barcelona fun.

Great location - Born is THE place to stay - but was disappointed at the standard of the room. Facing a loud street was not awesome, nor was the fact our AC seemed to be broken. We spent our nights tossing and turning on the top of the bed sheets trying to get comfortable while listening to drunken crazies scream... More

Small rooms but having a small balcony was great and the location is super. The buses outside are great for getting anywhere you need. They have free coffee/tea facilities in the lobby, which is very rare for Spain and free water and biscuits too! The decor is very cool and El Born is such brilliant area.

The location is fantastic, easy walking distance to everything. There is free tea/coffee, bottled water and biscuits - which was extremely helpful and saved us a lot of money (espicially on the water)

My partner and I stayed here last week for three nights and wanted somewhere to stay that was central but fairly priced. The Zoo hotel was great. E-mail communication from staff was helpful and speedy- I enquired about transport to the hotel from the airport and was sent a comprehensive list of info. On arrival we checked in at the... More

The reception is 100 yards round the corner next to the sister hotel, which wasn't a problem for me but if for any reason you feel more comfortable with help close by it could be. Breakfast (9 euro) is also served in that other venue, a buffet-style one, good quality. There were cheaper breakfast options locally of course but the... More

Very impressed following a four night stay. We paid the extra to get a better room with a balcony and it was definitely worth it. The rooms are on the slightly smaller side for two people and having the extra space on the balcony was worth it. Plus a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and wine late... More
