Absolutely excellent service, brilliant location right next to a metro stop, Port Vell and Las Ramblas. Brilliant decor and got a free upgrade to a room with a balcony. Would definitely return to chic and basic ramblas or one of the other hotels in the city.
great hotel in a great location”
had a great stay here at chic and basic. the staff were all really helpful and friendly. the hotel was perfect for what we wanted and we loved having the extra feature of the kitchenette. the hotel is located near a metro stop which is really handy for seeing all the sights and is within walking distance of the port and beach which is brilliant! this hotel is great value for money as the location is brilliant being just off la ramblas but it is really quiet as is down a little side street. i would highly recommend this hotel!!! the only negatives are that there are a few thing missing in the kitchenette, as there is no bin or kettle and the pillows are a little weird as you get one long thin one and one square one, both me and my husband found it a little hard to sleep. this place would be perfect with just a few tweaks.
Some hotel photos are just their nice photos. Chic & Basic is AS ADVERTISED. Interior design and whole ambiance are so cozy and not pretentious. All staff: PROFESSIONALS and GENUINELY helpful. Thanks to Bea and Francisco for helping me call the cab to return my phone. 5-STAR HIGH FIVE TO C&B Ramblas!
A Great Hotel”
We were welcomed by the very friendly staff when we checked in and there was always someone on hand to help with enquiries or make bookings, which they did very willingly. The mini kitchen was a great bonus and allows you to make hot drinks or make a very simple meal. The kettle boiled very quickly, unlike many hotel kettles. The hair drier was good quality as were the towels which were changed every day. Location was very convenient and only a minute walk to the metro and Ramblas. Rooms were basic but everything needed was there and were decorated thoughtfully. The bar was friendly although we did not have any meals there. Overall a great place to stay and we would definitely return to this hotel.
Great Hotel right on Ramblas”
We stayed here on one leg of our honeymoon, and really enjoyed our stay here. They give a great little guidebook in every room which I would recommend viewing, its right on Ramblas one of my favourite areas of Barcelona. They do advertise that they have parking available although the hotel is on a side street that is not accessible via a car, which sent our sat nav into a bit of a panic, however there are plenty of multi story car parks close to the hotel.
The experience is in the title, this hotel was well placed to access the harbour, beach and later ramblas. It was basic but had everything you needed including kettle, cups, fridge etc. It was very clean, was cleaned every day unless you didn't want it to be. Our room had the view of a alley/street but we weren't there for the views. Hotel staff were lovely, buffet breakfast looked good and value for money but we didn't use it. Drinks were reasonable. Overall a positive experience and we would stay there again
Perfect location and value”
The hotel was the best choice regarding the location. Two minutes walk to get to La Rambla, ten minutes walk to the port, two minutes walk to the metro station and yet in a quiet small street. The staff were very friendly. As we have three kids we had a family room with a large sofa bed. The room was very cozy, very clean.
Summed up by my 20yr old daughter,'This is the coolest hotel I've ever stayed in'. A great hotel set near the bottom of La Rambla the rooms were spacious, clean and cleverly designed to include a kitchenette in each room. The whole hotel has been designed to be cool and chic. Will definitely be seeing if this hotel is available next time we head to Barcelona.
Great location and very near to the METRO”
Location is good, just a block away from the main street of La Ramblas. Very near the METRO station of Drassanes. Also very near to the main stop of the Barcelona Citytour Bus. Room are equipped with kitchen utensils and cooker. However the cooker is very old and can't possibly cook. Room decent size and good design.
Great location but small rooms”
Nice hotel, which really is what the name suggests... chic and basic... they could do a little more effort in putting more chic in the rooms, but then again who will stay in the room when in Barcelona. The location is perfect, right at the end of Rambla near the Colon monument. Walking distance from beach and placa Reial.... Nightlife and gotic area around the corner.
Really nice hotel will re visit”
Right on drassanes metro station at the the bottom of La Ramblas. No views and a little back off the main st. But the hotel it's self very nice great bar, food and staff family room is a good size. Great to explore the city very central.
staff! Best location, clean, fair parice and awesome u”
Located a minute of walking from the ramblas, 3 from the beach, 5 from the la buqeria- at he Gothic quarter which is the most beautiful area at the city. The staff is very kind, the place is very clean- the best price:clean, location, food ratio I have ever had! Highly recommended!!!
Clean and convenient”
Clean room with comfy bed and clean bathroom/shower facilities. Quirky hotel just off La Ramblas, close enough to easily walk to the shops and stalls and also to the marina, shopping mall and beach.
Basic but Great Location”
We were only there for 3 nights but had previously requested a room with a view and also one of the brightly coloured rooms. We arrived and our room was not quite brightly coloured, a plain white room but it was still quirky and clean. Balcony was small and not the best view either. There is no arguing that this hotel has a great location though and is only minutes away from Las Ramblas as well as the metro Dressanes that was great to see al the city in such a short pace of time. Would use this hotel again but if it wasn't as expensive as it was basic.
Nice stay with convenient transportation. ”
Good location close to metro and la ramblas which is one of the most famous places in Barcelona. We have a room with cooking facilities like utensils and stoves, very convenient Very friendly and helpful stuffs, both check in and out process are quick.
Awesome location with a very unique decor”
We were very happy with the generously sized and clean room. Location was great as it is nicely tucked behind the busy street of La Rambla which means great accessibility but quiet during the night.
Attractive and Quirky”
Attractive and quirky place to stay in excellent location very close to Las Ramblas and harbour. We would definitely stay there again!
A central and comfortable hotel”
Our stay at the chic and basic hotel was great. The staff was friendly and the outdoor cafe was cute and it was also a good place to have breakfast. The only thing I could put my finger on that was not so great was the coffe from the machine that came with the breakfast, it tasted awfull. I would rather order a coffe from the bar. Otherwise it was easy to get to all the tourists attractions as the subway was a 1 min walk from the hotel and the beach was a 10-15 min walk away. We also loved the roof terasse that we had, a great place to relax between sightseeing and late dinners! Thank you for the stay:) would definitely recommend this hotel.
At the heart of Barcelona, yet quiet and basic”
We stayed for 2 nights, so we wanted to be in the center of the action. The rooms are basic but clean, just what you need in a vibrant city like Barcelona, where staying at your room should feel like a waste of time unless you need a nap, or a shower. The space is smartly manage. Rooms are small, but the lobby area is well designed and spacious with a nice quiet terrace and coffee bar in case you need a break at your doorstep. We booked last minute in high season so the price was a bit high, but so is every room in Barcelona in August. If you book in advance prices seem really worth it. As the name says its chic and basic. No unnecessary services and amenities, Though I would have appreciated 2 complimentary water bottles every day, not only at the start of your stay.
