Stay in the heart of Barcelona Excellent location – show map

Chic & Basic Zoo is in El Born, now one of the most fashionable and cosmopolitan districts of central Barcelona. On one side is the Gothic Quarter, to the other is Ciutadella Park, and the port is a few minutes away.

From the hotel, guests can easily get to the historic center of the city, the Gothic Quarter (Barrio Gótico) where the cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar, Plaza Sant Jaume and Santa Anna are located.

The hotel is also very close to the zoo, the Ciutadella Park, beaches and the Olympic Port. In the neighborhood guests will also find nightlife, bars, restaurants (the area of El Born is where you´ll find the most typical ‘tapas’) and museums, such as the Picasso Museum.

This is our guests' favorite part of Barcelona, according to independent reviews.

Couples in particular like the location – they rated it 9.0 for a two-person trip.

Chic & Basic Zoo has been welcoming Booking.com guests since Dec 19, 2005
