“Located in the heart of the action of Las Ramblas the chic&basic group has opened another successful mid range property which will cater to all those seeking a trendy city break pad that won't break the bank. chic&basic Ramblas has been created as an homage to all things Barcelona from the '60s. So you'll find an iconic green Seat 600 in the lobby, and all hotel room doors are adorned with a photograph and text creating an art gallery feel to all the corridors. With triple rooms and family rooms sleeping up to four, it ticks the boxes for larger groups of friends and families. Decor is minimalist with white linens and furniture offset by a single colour on the walls. The restaurant offers simple home-made style cuisine and claims to serve the best weekend brunch in town.”
