    - intimate room - hotel position - cleaning - good coffee at the breakfast

    - there isn't wi-fi in the hotel; - if you are lucky and find wi-fi, it's works just ten minutes; - indolent receptionist

    Perfect city pad for our adventures in Barcelona. Ultra modern. Communal areas were great with free coffee, biscuits and water. Lights were amusing. Staff we're very friendly and helpful.

    A bit expensive, space could have been bigger, perhaps a bit typical of this type of accommodation in Barcelona in General.

    Both the reception and housekeeping staff were all extremely helpful and pleasant. The various relaxation areas throughout the hotel with tea, coffee and water always available were nice. My room was outstanding - loved the lighting and a quiet balcony to relax on. I was pleasantly surprised how quiet it was at night given the proximity to the city center. The location near to the park was excellent, and only 15 minutes walk to the beach is a great compromise between city and surf.

    The free wifi signal in the room was a bit weak - a couple of times I needed to walk through the hallway until it found the signal but then it I would stay connected.

    The hotel brought more than expected in terms of the staff, quality and location. Just a 5 minute walk to get to the gothic quarter and las ramblas as well as little quirky shops and places to eat along the way. The staff were more than helpful, very nice.

    Loved the staff! So friendly and helpful! Location was great! Happy Hour and the wonderful gin and tonics served in the lobby.

    The beads hanging everywhere. Elevator was pretty small and a little scary.

    The location in Born is just terrific. Train delays caused us to arrive at 4 am; we very much appreciated that the check-in desk is staffed 24 hours a day! Our room had a street view. No issues with this: we had plenty of room, and street noise didn't keep us up.

    Because Chic & Basic favors style over function, it took a while for us to figure out how the room worked. And we never got the TV to work, though we really didn't put time into it.

    Location

    What a horrible room: Tacky lighting, beyond tiny (probably the smallest room Ive ever stayed in), with a window that is opaque and overlooks a construction site once opened, and not too clean. Oh and we were never warned to expect construction banging at 9am everyday of the week. A hotel I would never stay at again, even if for free!

    friendliness of the staff

    very far away from a metro station the basic rooms don't have any view,you can't see outside and that gave me a claustrophobic feeling

    Customer service was excellent. All of the front desk,bar tender and breakfast staff did everything to make our stay memorable. We were a party of eight. Your staff arranged travel, event tickets and restaurant reservations for us. When we returned the following week, rooms were ready and paperwork done. Please pass our thanks on to all staff sincerely, Beth Decker

    Hotel is original and unusual. Lobby and spaces outside the room are beautiful and user friendly. I like the concept of self service - outside the room one can make his coffee, tea or take the botlled water, all free of charge, as well as computer on which I'm writing this right now. :). Our room also had beautiful balcony almost like a lounge. There is possibility of the light show inside the room - just use the remote control.

    Inside the room there is no normal closet (wardrobe), just a hanger, not merely enought for 2 ladies! It also didn't have the soap bars, just shower gel, no shower caps or anything else. Also, they don't change towels regularly. The shower is not very practical either, as it doesn't have the "head". And the whole bathroom is in the glass, from all sides, so we were shocked at first, but later discovered the curtains...

    Location, staff, theme of the hostel.

    The walls are paper thin. Internet is slow. Rooms are laid out weird and pretty small. AC doesn't keep it very cool

    - Location - Friendly staff - Anna, at the check-in counter was absolutely terrific. Her spot-on advice, and sunshine personality really made our stay in Barcelona awesome.

    Room was quite spartan. It would have been nice to have had a chair or couch.

    amazing spacious room. Really nice touch with the coffee station. Great balcony with lovely view onto street. Good size bed and loved the shower, so relaxing! Want to stay there again for sure!!!

    The 3pm check in is a little late but it was good we could leave our bags safely downstairs.
