Fodor's Review

The lobby of this hip little boutique hotel in the Born, with its leather sofa and banquettes, can remind you of a Starbuck's; the rooms tell a different story. The emphasis at Chic & Basic, when it opened in 2006, was to be on whimsical, edgy accommodations at affordable prices (most budget billets in Barcelona at the time were probably best avoided), and designer Xavier Claramunt rose to the occasion. The rooms have bare white walls; a beaded curtain separates the stall shower from the bedroom; a remote control lets you change the color of the room lights to suit your mood. There's no furniture per se: just a collection of molded plastic modular units you arrange to make tables, seats, back rests, trays–-whatever you need at the moment. Standard rooms have Internet-capable TVs and small private terraces.
