Hotel Description

It’s rare that a hotel manages to give itself a name that’s quite so on-the-nose, but if you know that El Born is one of Barcelona’s hipper neighborhoods, then the name “chic&basic Born Hotel” tells you just about all you need to know. (They sold the capital letters and passed the savings on to the customer.) The only questions that remain are: how chic? And how basic?

They’re best answered together. It’s refreshing to find a concept of chic that doesn’t depend on lavish luxury, and this hotel is unapologetically bare-bones. The décor is very nearly all-white, which simplifies the interior design tasks a bit, and also opens up the rather cozy interior spaces — and the LED mood lights allow you to dial in your preferred hue. Your shower is right there in the room with you, which isn’t perhaps ideal for total privacy freaks but is a classic boutique-hotel gesture that the younger clientele always appreciates.

Services are similarly, well, basic, amounting to a couple of lounge areas serviced with gratis coffee, tea and mineral water. No matter. There’s no mistaking a place called “cheap&basic” for some kind of opulent pleasure palace. This is a place to lay your head and hang your garment bag, and little more — the neighborhood fills in the rest of the blanks, and for guidance in that department, the desk staff is only too happy to help.
