Me and my husband stayed 3 nights at this lovely hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and very clean bathrooms. The hotel offers bike rental for 10 euros and it was amazing. Great location and the breakfast buffet was very good. I would definitely stay at chic and basic again next time in Barcelona!

The location of Chic and Basic Ramblas is actually a couple of streets away from la Rambla towards El Raval area. At night, the area is quite shady if you are out after dark and have families, this also goes for La Rambla at night. The hotel it's self has really nice rooms and bathrooms which are maintained each day...

I loved the restaurant downstairs; good food(especially breakfast), good music/shows. The hotel is perfectly located, not far from all the touristic attractions, and with a metro station less than 5 minutes away. For a...

Quirky hotel just off the Ramblas and close to the harbour. The staff are very helpful and friendly and the hotel is comfortable and clean. We had a superior room which had a rooftop terrace, complete with its own astroturf! There is a small underground car park but access is difficult as the road leading to the hotel is blocked...

Trendy hotel with accommodating staff. Good but a little pricey in house restaurant. Flamenco music on weekends was lovely. Comfortable rooms facing quiet street. Close to the southern end of Ramblas and Metro.

Stayed here with my boyfriend for a couple of nights in May 2016. The location was both good and bad - it is a central location, right of La Rambla, you can walk to many restaurants and it was really close to the metro (a big plus!).

Staying in El Raval

Neighbourhood Profile
El Raval
Once a downtrodden corner of downtown Barcelona, this gritty area has seen a cultural resurgence boasting an excellent nightlife and one of the most multi ethnic spots in the entire city. A sense of humble authenticity protrudes from the many independent record stores, second hand shops, and student bars that seem to light up the streets day and night. The rocking epicenter, the MACBA Plaça, is a modern day forum for bohemian youth, abuzz with the sights and sounds of late-night gatherings and talented skateboarders showing off their latest tricks.
