Fabulous 8.6 From 103 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great hotel ideally located
Our experience of this hotel and Barcelona from start to finish was nothing short of ab fab!! The location of the hotel in Born area was the best, with great restaurants, great bars and many of the sights were within walking distance. The beach was only a 20-minute walk. The reception staff were so helpful which made our stay exceptional...we cant wait to return which we intend to do next summer.

Cute Hotel, Great Location, A/C was broken
When I checked in my A/C wasn't working, but I was told there maintenance guy was gone for the day so the best they could do was bring me a fan. Then the next day, when it still wasn't fixed all they could tell me was, "we're all booked up, so we can't move you to another room." And they made an off-hand comment about how Americans like their rooms cold -- no, I just prefer it not to be 80 degree still air in my room. Aside from 2 nights of terrible sleep, it was conveniently located, and it was quiet. All the ropes in the hall and dark lighting felt more like I was walking thru a nightclub than a hotel, but it didn't really bother me - just seemed a strange decor choice. I appreciated the complimentary water & coffee in the lounge area.

Nice place to stay in BCN.
This hotel is in a great location for seeing the sites of Barcelona. Very clean, very friendly and helpful staff. A few of the “chic” features were not the most functional. A little less chic and and a little less basic and it would be a little more user friendly.

Stellar property, beautiful staff
Anna and the crew at the Chic & Basic was accommodating, kind, generous, fun, funny and super duper sweet! I looooooved our room. The elevated flooring and original details really made the renovations pop. I also liked the naughty shower ;) I would recommend this place for any adventurous traveler.

The property is located in a great neighborhood and the staff is super friendly. Free Nespreso and water were nice. The cleanliness was less than optimal, particularly in the washroom: stained sink and shower, dusty floor...

Great Hotel in an Awesome City
Great Hotel. Bed was a tad hard for me, but that’s personal choice.

Great complimentary water and coffee
Toilet did not flush properly, thermostat did not bring room to comfortable heat temperature. Room had steps down to bath. Hard to deal with in the chair in room, clean and quiet. Bazaar design with hanging beads and mirrors. Staff friendly and caring.

Very good 8.0
they give you slippers
The room was quiet and comfortable but very tight. Could barely get my luggage in the door and then have to lift it above the bed to get it to the other side of the room to store. Thought the floor could use a good scrubbing too. Great price for the location though.
