What they thought of our performance

Shine baby, shine!

Camera and action! We invite you to see the world through our lens. Discover the details of our rooms, the common areas, and the terrace of our design hotel in Barcelona in images.

Some Like It Hot

Barcelona is a city to be enjoyed outdoors and the terrace of our Hotel is a great way to do so.

On the top floor terrace you will find a spectacular space to sunbathe or cool off. Spacious showers, sunbeds, and cabins to get changed far away from the cameras.

"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore"

We would love to tell you that if you follow the yellow brick road you will reach our hotel, but the truth is that we are located in the characteristic Eixample quarter of Barcelona. A very central location and just 10 minutes away from Barcelona's Montjuic mountain.

Rooftop terrace and bar in the middle of Barcelona

Located in one of the nerve centres of the city and very well connected, at Hotel chic&basic Velvet we also thought of spaces to disconnect from urban life.

The journey begins at the reception. Near the lobby you will find our unmistakable 'chic&arts area', and one floor up you reach a wonderful space to eat, drink, and relax. On one side of it is the breakfast area, with coffee, water, and tea that you can have whenever you want free of charge. One the other side you will find the 'Helpyourself' area with an Honesty Bar where you can pour yourself a drink at any time, just write down your consumptions including your room number. In the back you enter the ‘Beyourself’ chill-out space that opens onto a spectacular terrace surrounded by plants.

If you want to continue the tour of our Hotel, we recommend that you go up to the top floor. Our 'Loveyourself' area awaits you there with a fantastic rooftop terrace inspired by the French Riviera. You can get changed in the wooden cabins as if you were on the beach, and then stretch out to read on a sunbed or cool off under one of our spacious showers. Now that’s what we call relaxing.

Breathe in the rhythm of the Eixample neighbourhood near the Sants quarter and Plaza España square.

Lights, Camera, Action! Welcome to one of the 50 rooms that await you at Hotel chic&basic Velvet.

They are all equipped with Wi-Fi, flat-screen satellite TV, saf, and a full bathroom with a hair dryer and other facilities. You’re starting to relax already, right?

Shall we continue? Well, if you come by car you will find a parking in the building (subject to availability) and we are available to you 24/7 at our reception.


Experience the coolest culture in our chic&basic hotels. Fashion, art, photography, design, performances, and music. Daring artistic and cultural expressions that stir our interior, invite us to interact and make us feel part of the experience.
