This hotel isn't cheap but I think it's worth it because of the staff and the amenities. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and gives tons of great tips on restaurants (take their advice and make reservations where possible!), sightseeing, etc... In multiple languages. That's invaluable. The amount we saved because of the free bottled water, coffee, and cookies the hotel provided was great! Otherwise, the decor is interesting - chic, the rooms were big and the beds were nice. The location for us was good: near some great restaurants, and near the train station we needed to drag our bags to for the next part of our trip.
The shower is a little messy because of the open design, but not a big problem.
The staff really makes this hotel a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. They helped us with dinner reservations and a taxi to the airport. They could not have been more welcoming!!!
Staff was very pleasant and location was excellent
Smell of room 22
Great location in the Born district. Helpful staff. Quirky rooms, simple and basic (but that's to be expected with the name of the hotel). If you're looking for glitz&glamour, it's not the place for you. But if you're looking for something that will cover your basic needs at a good price and give you a good place to drop your stuff while you're out and about exploring Barcelona--- Chic&Basic is a great option.
No closets in the room, not a lot of private space -- not necessarily a negative, just something to note if that's important to you.
We thoroughly enjoyed balcony and good quality unlimited tea and coffee to start and end our days ... staff charming and location great ! Thank s !
