Nice hotel, spacy room, fine interior. Good location right in the El Born area. Very friendly staff, ultra clean. Very affordable for what you get.
Front of house staff were so helpful and considerate. Room wasnt very big but had everything you could need. Very beautifully renovated.
Truly cant think of anything
Even though it is called basic, the rooms were perfect. Even had a iPod Dock! You get complimentary tea and coffee also. Perfect location in Borne, really friendly staff. Would highly recommend.
Nothing I didn't like
The no reception No service whatsoever Complicated to find at first Phone not working Cannot complain or ask question since there are no reception! LoL
Helpful staff, walking distance to everything. Free water and fresh coffee available all the time.
Rooms were quite small and the hotel was hard to find.
Very good location right across the street from the park entrance, nice building, clean room, strong wifi signal, free espresso, cookies and water in the hallway, good shower, nice staff
Small tv with few international channels, bed could have been a bit softer, and I did have a window in my room but could only see a small patch of sky and some walls, no view of the street
Bed's too short, your legs are outside of the bed. Room is small too. I do not recommend this hotel.
it was just fine in everyway except one..
air conditioner didn't work most of the time we were there, and it was hot..
Cleaning is everyday, wifi is good
No kettle, noise from corridor is well heard
Best location in Barcelona. 1 minute from the park, 1 minute from the bars and restaurants. Good WIFI. Espresso machine outside the room was great.
Internal room didn't have much natural light. Looked out onto a wall but for the price paid I didn't expect a great view.
Cosy rooms. Walls adorned with animal heads (not real). Helpful staff. Perfect location for walking around the lovely park or starting out your day around El Born.
Nothing, as long as you research the reception being around the corner from the entrance to the rooms. All details, with maps, are on their website so it wasn't a problem for us.
Great location (quiet but in the centre of El Born, close to many attractions and just 15 min walk to the beach), friendly staff, nice reception/bar area (in Chic&Basic Meetingpoint just around the corner)
Nothing to mention really
good shower, clean sheets, room and bath room is quite spacious, free cofffee
no reception, no tea
There was no reception where we were staying to so other guest would run around talking on the halls during late hours, and the fire alarm got on in the middle of the night and it took around 15 min for someone to show up from the other hotel and turn it off
Location was ok just beside park & the zoo. Staff were nice.
The rooms were very very small & didnt have a room with a view so looked out at a wall. You needed a card & a key to get into the hotel.
Location, very clean rooms and the staff was very prompt when requested an iron, etc.
The phone in the room did not work so you had to go down a hallway to dial the reception which was located in another building.
Loved location-so many shops right on doorstep!!, staff soo v friendly. Great atmosphere in Meeting Point!
Price quite high -but that was due to the International Mobile/Technology Media Conference at same time!
Location was awesome! Loved the surrounding cafés and restaurants,staff was really helpful with giving directions to all the tourist attractions
Wifi didn't work at first but was fixed later
The staff were friendly and helpful, we were upgraded to a room with a small cute balcony. They provide free coffee in the hallway. It is good for a city trip.
No shampoo in the bathroom.
Excellent location at the heart of of the Born district Easy access to other worth-seeing sights of the city Friendly & supporting staff Free & fast wifi Complimentary coffee & water
The view of my room was not great. TV was ridiculously small (14'' max). Room design could be a little more funky given the hotel's concept. Reception is in a different building but not far away, so not too much of a problem.
The staff were really friendly and helpful especially when I had trouble getting in and out of the building. Lots of water and biscuits! Room was spacious and lots of storage space! Balcony was lovely and cute
TV was a bit small..
Chic and Basic Zoo is in a perfect location, right opposite a beautiful park and 15 mins walks (if that) from La Rambla and the beach. It was clean, unique, and very well managed, and definitely excellent value for money. Highly recommended!
It was a little noisy as you're on a main road, but I still couldn't fault the location and unless you stay quite far out from the centre you'll probably encounter the same level of noise in most places.
Lovely location - facing the park - but just few meters from the bars and restaurants. Nice interior with a beautiful balcony.
Wi-Fi is unstable.
Unlimited free bottled water!!! and free coffee and biscuits the design was very nice, staff were very friendly, and GREAT value for money others: 24 hour reception, elevator, wifi, close proximity to a community gym with real weights and machines (about 15 euro casual entry), good location for seeing touristy things and getting to the station (estacio franco) once you know the area
finding the reception was confusing like others have mentioned, i would advice figuring it out on google maps before going rather than trying to wing it with no mobile internet like i did (walked right past it and ended up walking in circles for ages! be warned that you probably won't notice the sign that says chic and basic since i found it a little obscured, but there is a huge sign saying reception) you can hear others in the hallway (but seems to be the case everywhere in europe) my room smelled like fresh paint (but at least this means it was new i guess? lol), and it left that paint smell on some of my clothes did not like having to press a bell and waiting for someone at reception to buzz you in every time you wish to enter nothing major overall, just be prepared for finding the reception area really
Nice place. Free cofee and cookies and water.Close to old town, Barceloneta and metro. Taxi cost from airport 31 eur. Easy to go back to airport by train 4.30 single ticket.
Reception in other building. Small tv ~15 inch. Repairing works in the house.
