    Excellant facilities, concept of relaxing area with coffee , tea etc was very good. The gym could do with re arranging to allow more floor space! I am not sure why there were 2 clothes rails in there. All other services were excellent and the few things we needed addressing were done so in a timely manner.

    It was very very noisy at night, double glazed windows would help!! Channels on the tv were limited

    Chic & Basic Born is totally chic and different, we had a very warm welcome by the staff and they were very helpful. The hotel had everything you needed and the rooms were amazing.

    It is a completely new concept and a change from the standard hotel accommodation (I preferred it infinitely to the hotel Central where my family was staying). The room was lovely, the bed super comfortable and all the little touches very agreeable. I loved my balcony, very private and yet full of life, and I like the fact that it was very design and so different from an ordinary room. It was a very pleasant experience. And yes, I would recommend it and come again if I can.

    Really a very good hotel especially for its money and in a great neighbourhood with nice restaurants and bars.The metro station it was very close. I liked the lightning in the room.The hotel stuff was really nice and helpfull and the free coffee, tea or water is really a great idea.The only negative was the cleanliness. Although they cleaned every day the room they never changed us the towels in our 6night stay.

    They haven't changed oyr towels.

    The location is excellent and as i am a women solo travelor, i felt very secured in the hotel and in the area. The personnel was very nice and friendly. Very easy to communicate too as they all speak english or french. the personal at the annexed restaurant are also very attentive. The self service coffee and water is also appreciated. the lobby is very small and, following the pictures i had seen on the web site, i was a bit decived. However, i had a very nice stay and I recommand it.

    In the web site they talk about the white bar. That's'wrong. It is the burguesa and the restaurant is not part of the hotel but they make arrangement. They should explain more about the hotel and restaurant services when we arrive because we don't really know. There is no bar or restaurant in the hotel itself.

    Location was excellent and in particular, Stefan was extremely helpful when we had difficulties getting our tickets from La Caixa

    The hanging beads in the hallway were a bit annoying

    Great location in Born, friendly staff, stylish. Completely no fuss from the brown paper bag of essentials to the breakfast bar. Lives up to its name.

    I didn't mind but the (enclosed!) shower in the middle of the room and the rather cramped quarters wouldn't be to everyone's taste

    Superb

    Really enjoyed the interesting design of the hotel. The rooms weren't huge, but I found them totally adequate. The funky design made up for lack of space. The staff on reception were really helpful and friendly - a nice change from other hotels we have stayed in recently. Complimentary bottled water and coffee was a real bonus! I would stay here again. Location is great. Amazing steaks in Argentinean restaurant across the road! A must!

    Staff was exceptionally helpful; location is fantastic; the room was fun!

    we would prefer a queen or king sized bed rather than twins. Ideally there would be more space for unpacking and for writing.

    Superb

    The design of the hotel itself with the multi-coloured beads in the corridors, the 'help yourself' area and the design of the room. The desk staff were incredibly helpful and should be complimented on their approach to helping guests

    It was disappointing that the White Room bar was closed for refurbishment, it being one of the reasons we chose the hotel in the first place.

    availability of unlimited tea/coffee/water in the help yourself area - great. good location. pleasant room with all necessary facilities.

    poor quality towels - time to invest in some new ones.

    Convenient central location. Great modern design, very clean, spotless. I really enjoyed my stay. The only problem is that I stayed there for only one night! Next time I am going to Barcelona, I know where to stay!

    Location in quieter neighborhood with nice restaurant options, proximity to Gothic Quarter, amazing design and roominess

    The clear glass shower with beads assumes that all friends or families who stay at the hotel are comfortable being naked in front of each other. A curtain should be provided instead of beads.

    We loved our stay and the Chic and basic . The staff was super friendly and helpful. We even came back again at the end of our trip, and they found a place for us. It is stylish and fun. The rooms were comfortable and clean and right in the heart of Born. Everyone who worked there could not have been nicer.

    Fabulous

    Amazing location,in the heart of the Born district,close to some great independant boutiques and vibey bars. The beach and the Parc De citaduella are less than 15 mins walk away and there are easy and cheap transport links to the airport (buy a t10 ticket,take the r2 train to Passeig de Gracia,stay on the same platform and wait for the next r2 to Estacio de Franca. The hotel is just round the corner!) Loved the "Help Yourself "room,a communal area where you could grab free expressos and bottled water. Rooms are simple but clean and modern with everything you need.

    It would have been great to have a safe and a fridge but these are only minor grumbles and the overall the hotel was extremely good value for money.
