I would recommend this hotel for sure.
the hotel is very central in El Born, you can find around a lot of restaurants, it is a walk distance to Rambla, close to the hotel are two metro stations. The hotel is very functional furnished, no-frills. there is no mini-bar, but who does need it if you can find a lot of bars around:) the staff is very solicitous and helpful.
Calling all design freaks - here is something you’ll love! The design hotel Chic & Basic Born is a relaxed place to stay where you can meet people and chill out in a part of Barcelona that’s really on the move.
Location, Location, Location
The Born area of Barcelona, where you will find the Chic & Basic Born, has many a side to it. There are of course all the traditional cultural sights you would expect, such as the Picasso Museum, the Santa Maria del Mar and the old market (Mercat del Born). In the last few years, though, several innovative business ideas have been developed and original boutiques, hip bars and restaurants have been established. This vibrant quarter is ideal for a short break away to Barcelona, which offers a little bit of everything whilst remaining authentically Spanish. Just a few steps from the design hotel Chic & Basic Born you will also find the Ciutadella Park.
