Description: Chic & Basic BornChic & Basic is a concept: modern, urban, fun, basic yet chic accommodation; Chic & Basic Born is a boutique hotel within a chic neighbourhood in the hip city of Barcelona.
The Hotel Chic & Basic Born is perfectly located on the periphery of the trendy Born area: a few minutes walk to the Picasso Museum, Santa Maria del Mar, the Gothic Quarter in one direction; a short walk to the beautiful Parc de la Ciutadella in the other.
The Hotel Chic & Basic Born is housed in an impressive turn-of-the-century building. However, in a city full of stunning architecture, the historic elements at Chic & Basic Born were not considered sacrosanct: the designers have emphasized the ultra modern with white as the overriding colour, leaving space for the coloured LED light system which can literally change the mood at the flick of a switch.
The Hotel Chic & Basic Born is only basic in the sense that this unique boutique hotel has everything a visitor to Barcelona could want - fully furnished fun rooms, a chilled lounge, a hip bar, all in a great location - nothing more. And, no less, it's chic.
Type of rooms: Chic & Basic BornThe Hotel Chic & Basic Born offers 31 rooms in XL, L or M. All feature a predominantly white colour scheme with the LED atmospheric light system, plus a designer en-suite bathroom with a shower in the centre of the room.
