The good yellow stuff

Our chic&basic Lemon hotel is located in the heart of Barcelona, a few metres away from Las Ramblas street and Plaza Catalunya (Barcelona’s main square); the nerve centre of the city's metro, train, and bus stations. Our boutique hotel in the centre of Barcelona also allows you to explore the main tourist attractions of the city on foot.

Hotel in the centre of Barcelona

Our hotel in the centre of Barcelona is located on the border that separates the central districts of Raval, Eixample and Gothic, right in the heart of the city.

Just like an oasis has historically been a point of provisions and rest for travellers, chic&basic Lemon will be your private refuge in the big city; the place where you can recharge your batteries after an intense day.

To do this, we have completely renovated the hotel, located on the outskirts of the Raval quarter, to ensure that it is completely in tune with Barcelona's personality. A reflection of this are our 30 design rooms distributed over five floors. We invite you to enjoy the urban rhythm from the freshness and light of our rooms.

Get the best rest in a hotel in Pelayo Street.

Responsible for providing a feeling of calm to the hotel - despite being on Pelayo Street, the main shopping street in Barcelona – is the wild vegetation that floods all the spaces: yellow is harmoniously combined with green thanks to native flora such as lemon trees that give the hotel its name, as well as wilder variants with tropical reminiscences.

We are an urban hotel in the centre of Barcelona that also offers rest provided by our spectacular garden-terrace and our 'Helpyourself' and 'Beyourself' areas where plants are once again the protagonists. Before or after a hectic day, our hotel with terrace in Barcelona is the ideal space to pause and unwind by having a drink before going out at night.

All our rooms are equipped with a double bed, 40'' TV, wardrobe, safe, private bathroom, and Wi-Fi service. On top of that, the Superior & Exterior rooms have a large window or a balcony with views of Pelayo Street. The hotel also offers Triple rooms ideal for a holiday with friends or family.
