- very dark rooms, no sunlight at all
This is a 'hostel alike' concept of hotel. Good location and great idea with coffee (very good coffee machine!) and tea facilities in the hall. Plus free water! Comfortable rooms. Great and beautiful park across the street! I strongly recommend this place!
The only thing I missed was a window-view! Remember that reception is in the different building, but I think this is not a problem at all!
Small and basic, but great area and price. If you wont be your room a lot this is perfect for the $. Free unlimited water and the staff is exceptional.
Wifi works well and the staff are very nice
In two days found cockroaches in the room when I arrived. Lousy. too expensive for what they offer
The Hotel is Chic and Basic! Great and funky design, friendly staff! And great location :)
We were given a room at Chic & Basic Born, not Chic & Basic Zoo, as there was a problem with the pipes and our room was unusable. In the end we really enjoyed our stay because the room upgrade was a great surprise.
Leaking bathroom ceiling, no shelves in the shower, and night lamp in middle of bed - kept hitting head on it.
If you love walking down the streets, you'll love this place, because it gives you a quiet atmosphere while you can just go for 20 minutes into the city centre. The hotel is quiet, private, and if you want some water or a snack, you got it in the hotel's hall for free! They supply water bottles and biscuits :-) In conclusion, the hotel is great, and if you'll take the room with the balcony you'd really enjoy from it.
The double bed was seperating while we were sleeping on it! So we found ourselves connecting the beds in the middle of the night a couple of times :(
Service is excellent with Great professionals working Price is excellent value. Room is very confortable. Water, tea, coffee facilities free.
Just 1 thing: TV screen too small
Very good location .rooms small but very well layed out . Free water tea coffee and cookies was brilliant to be se to just lift cold water for free as you wanted
My only complaint is that the beds are very uncomfortable we stayed 3 nights and my back and neck was sore in mornings a and didn't get much sleep . And the view from the window was a brick wall
Great option really good location in the gothic quarter
It's location next to the zoo - beautiful surrounding buildings.
They weren't kidding about the basic - I guess the expensive rate was based on the location alone. And there was black hair in my bed and a couple of cockroaches hanging out in my bathroom....
Excellent location and value for money! Couldn't ask for anything more. Fantastic!
Change of location of reception could have been posted better. Hard to find
Really friendly staff! Helpfull, great tips about cool local shops and restaurants. Breakfast is amazing! Homemade marmelade, fresh coffee and fresh fruit yummie!
free coffee and water all day. location is great.
superior room was very small. not easy to find at first time.
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.
