Hotel chic&basic Born

Carrer Princesa 50, Barcelona, Catalonia, 08003, Spain

The lobby of this hip little boutique hotel in the Born with its leather sofa and banquettes might remind you of a Starbucks, but the rooms tell a different story: the concept for chic&basic was whimsical, edgy accommodations at affordable prices, 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 balconies.
