The location of Chic & Basic Born is great. We found the Born area to be probably the best to walk around in Barcelona. Near restaurants, the beautiful Ciutadella Park, within walking distance to Las Ramblas, metro and everything you need.
The hotel is very hip and spacey, perfect for couples and people who love design. We were worried it would be tacky but luckily we found it to be very stylish and elegant. Even the LED light shower curtain! Our room was small but clean and light. We played around with colored lights for an hour and felt like children.
Warning: If you're shy and don't feel like showing yourself naked to the one you're staying with, you should probably choose another hotel. The shower is in the middle of the room and although there is a real shower curtain it's a so-so solution. And the toilet is in a glass closet, not like a real bath room.
We absolutely loved this hotel, and hope to stay here next time we visit Barcelona. We'll probably choose a bigger room with balcony next time though.
Oh, and bottled water was free, excellent!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more less
