Great Hotel, Great Location.

Posted Jul 24, 2017
Visited with my wife for 5nights in July 2017. Quick and easy check in. Lifts available, one day it was out of order when we were leaving the hotel, but on return workmen were already repairing the problem and it was fixed promptly. 24 hour reception, nice but expensive buffet breakfast, great location for everything: beach, montjuic, magic fountain, everything more or less is walkable.. if not then the hop on hop off bus and metro are great and easy alternatives! Would recommend to friends!and stay again myself!

Excellent Hotel just one major issue

Posted Jul 19, 2017
Pros: Everything was excellent
Cons: Wifi
I would highly recommend this hotel. Convenient location to beach, La Ramblas, and the Gothic Quarter. Super cute inside and nice rooms. Great bar downstairs with food. However, if you need Wifi, this is NOT the hotel for you. They offer free wifi but it is extremely poor so you will have difficulty with it.

Fab hotel great location, right near the metro station. Room dark, beds are great. Lift noise is my only complaint. Kitchenette was a plus as making tea is a must. Took our son who is nearly seven, he thought the reception was like heaven. Breakfast and bar food was fab, alley area is not bad.( less touristy) Chic and basic it's name says it all, this hotel is quirky and cool.

Amazing position !

Posted May 23, 2017
Pros: Friendly, helpful at all times. Great position.
Cons: Nothing!
Location: Great location for Ramblas, quay , beach, bars restaurants shopping. Couldn't fault it.
Fab! Hotel is situated one minute from las Ramblas and 5 minutes from the quayside which is wonderful for sights, shopping and eating, day or evening. We walked everywhere even to Sagrada Familia which took us about one hour and three quarters. There is so much to see on the way. Barcelona is such a beautiful city for architecture, obviously Gaudi, and very green and clean. Wifi is everywhere!! Which is fantastic. Took 2trips on the open top bus and saw all the sights, hopping on and off when needs be. Well worth the money. Also good reductions for seniors etc. Loads of fab museums. Shopping to die for!! Loved all the picturesque alleyways and plazas. Such an amazing place!!! The hotel was gorgeous! Small , clean and lovely helpful staff.. the clue is in the name, Basic Chic. So not a lot of wardrobe space!! But a very handy ladder as part of the decor which for us two ladies served perfectly as hanging space! Lovely spacious room and good shower. Also a balcony (superior room) well worth it.

Average and dated hotel with good location.

Posted May 21, 2017 on Hotels
Good location to la ramblas walking street, Barcelona beach, and waterfront restaurants. Metro very close. Room was clean but small and dated. Recommend getting an end room for a little more space. Did not provide hair shampoo and hair conditioner. Provided water bottles and umbrella when requested from front desk. Restaurant food was average. Needed help getting on internet...they should fix known issue.
