Hostal in the centre of Barcelona

First we need to clarify something. In Spanish, the term 'Hostal' is not the same as 'Hostel' in English. A hostal is more like a guesthouse, with private bedrooms and bathrooms, but more economical than a hotel. On top of that, our hostal is inspired by design and attention to detail that is characteristic of all our chic&basic hotels. Not only do we have free Wi-Fi, free breakfast and snacks are waiting for you in the open kitchen.

Our Hostal is located on Calle Tallers 82, in the very heart of the city. Just a 5 minutes' walk from Plaza Catalunya square and Las Ramblas street, between the neighbourhoods Eixample and Raval, only a few steps away from the main tourist attractions.

The location of Hostal chic&basic Tallers in the Ciutat Vella (Old town) district, in the heart of the city, is valued by our guests as their favourite part of the city, according to independent reviews.

Without a doubt, a fantastic location for travellers interested in culture, food, and shopping.

We will be happy to help you with our tourist recommendations so that you can experience the true energy of Barcelona.

chic&basic Tallers is located on the first and second floor of a local apartment building.

We have 14 private rooms with minimalist decoration, white walls, and parquet floors: 1 Single, 4 Double Exterior with balcony, and 9 Double Interior Rooms facing a quiet neighbourhood courtyard that is characteristic of Barcelona's Eixample quarter.

Among other facilities, all rooms are equipped with Wi-Fi, flat-screen satellite TV, hair dryer, air conditioning, and heating. The bathroom is integrated into the room. Here you can see our image gallery.
