    Never has basic looked so hip…..It’s not really surprising to find this stylish hotel on one of Barcelona’s coolest streets (Princesa) in one of Barcelona’s coolest barrios (Born). Every is carefully designed---you could possibly describe it as mod with a healthy dose of whimsy. White prevails in rooms and shared spaces with pops of color via oversized furniture, lights, and art. If you’re staying for any real length of time it’s worthwhile to book an extra-large room with a terrace. The meeting point is a cozy lounge area where you can hang out, or wait around for your local friends to pick you up for a night on the town. Travelers worried about their carbon footprint can rent a bike or hoof it around town—most of the major attractions are nearby.

    Chic but definitely not basic, this design hotel found in the centre of the Born area is perfectly located for the Cyan and Mutt galleries as well as the contagious nightlife of the Passeig del Born (a bar-filled street with a buzz, running through the middle of this district). With 7-metre high ceilings, intriguing corridors and the option to change the lighting colour depending on your mood, Chic & Basic Born reflects both modernity and it's 100-year history. Eat at Mosquito, drink at Mudanzas and then roll into your plush sheets just a few minutes stroll away.

Description

Chic but definitely not basic, this design hotel found in the centre of the Born area is perfectly located for contemporary art galleries like the Cyan and Mutt as well as the contagious nightlife of Carrer Princesa and the Passeig del Born (a buzzy bar-filled street running through the middle of this district). With 7-metre high ceilings, intriguing corridors and the option to change the lighting colour depending on your mood, Chic & Basic Born reflects both modernity and it's 100-year history. Complimentary tea, coffee and water can be enjoyed in the "Help Yourself" lounge and wifi is free in rooms and shared spaces. Bike rentals and walking tours can be booked in reception.
