Great basic hotel. Clean, good bar, nice reception, cool decor. Great central location. Down side, twin beds very soft. Don't stay together if you preferred a double. No utensils in room although there was a kitchenette. Noisy from other rooms. Would use chain again but only for short brake.

If you want to be in the centre of Barcelona, but with some peace and quiet, Chic&Basic Ramblas is the perfect hotel. Situated less than a minutes walk from Drassanes metro station, this hotel is round the corner for Las Ramblas - the busy and popular street in Barcelona. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful and rooms were... More

This is the 6 time in the same hotel in Barcelona.The hotel and services are the same = EXCELLENT !!! However, this time we discovered that the food at the restaurant is not anymore like was before. We have tried to find out why and the answer came fast: Last year, the restaurant was rented to another company (chain restaurants),... More

Loved this hotel. The rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. The location was ideal. Being close to the tube and a short walk to Ramblas. 24 hr reception was helpful and staff were happy to make dinner reservations etc. for us. Definitely recommend and would be back.

Not bad. Shower kind of gets water everywhere in the bathroom, but clean, good service and reasonably good price. Hotel room door was tough to open! Tough when sober, let alone after a couple of drinks at the bar downstairs! Had to get the guys downstairs to help!!! Funny view of abandoned rock climbing wall. Alright location.

As the title says, best things about Chic & Basic Ramblas during our stay were the service & location. And otherwise there were hardly any things to complain about. I would definitely recommend the hotel as a base for your Barcelona exploration. The place is interestingly decorated, and it was done with a good taste. Our room was decently sized,... More

Location is really good but we found the hotel very average. Towels and bedding felt very basic and the view from our balcony was very average (Was of a basketball court). The shower was small and the kitchenette was a waste of space really, we were given cups but no jug to fill with water everything had dust on it... More

I felt like I walked into a scene from the 60's, so posh! The design is very cool, the lobby especially. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was very professional and helpful. We rented bikes and rode all around barcelona. The breakfast was very good. The rooms are a bit small, especially the bathrooms, but we hardly spent any... More

Room good and clean. Great balcony. Air conditioning. TV in Spanish only. Slow service at the bar and staff will keep you waiting to serve locals first no matter how long you've been sat waiting.

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.
