For such a reasonably-priced hotel, I was very surprised as the quality of our stay here over four nights in June. Being my first time in Barcelona, my friend recommended we stay close to Las Ramblas. Chic & Basic stood out as being clean, modern and excellently located. All of these qualities were realised during our stay.
The fitout is very modern but not obnoxious and small, quirky touches abound. Tasteful nude photo on a door anyone? The room we stayed in was super clean and fresh; I couldn't wait to hit the bed at the end of the day. Less than two minutes' walk to Las Ramblas is too convenient, not to mention its similar proximity to Drassanes metro station making getting there from the airport very easy. The staff were excellent too, speaking good English and being happy to have a joke or a chat with us.
The only negative I can recall is that the bathroom had a slight groundwater smell after use, but this is obviously not something the hotel can control, nor was it particularly bothersome.
This property is a winner based on my experience.
