Located in one of the Barcelona´s best areas, the chic and basic Born offers you the possibility to reach the majority of tourist attractions on foot and at the same time enjoy the vibrant calm atmosphere in one of the most “cool” neighbourhoods in the city, comparable to Soho, London.
To give you an idea, in a radius of 300 metres you can visit, the Picaso Museum, the Chocolate Museum, the Catedral del Mar or photograph the impressive door of the Arc del Triomf (Arco de Triunfo in Spanish) which leads you to the biggest park in the city: The Ciutadella park, with the geology and zoology museum, diverse outdoor sculptures and the zoo, amongst others.
Very close to chic and basic Born, you will find three of the most famous markets in the city: the old Born Market, which has been reconverted and is now a cultural centre and historic memorial, the Santa Caterina market and the famous La Boquería. The last one is located in Las Ramblas in the city, taking you to the Colón monument and the Maremagnum shopping centre, next to the sea.
Another of the routes close to our Hotel, takes you to the Ciutat Vella (Gothic city) with the Catedral, Sant Jaume square and the Portal del Àngel road with all the shops you could possibly imagine, or the Via Laietana, repleat with some of the most varied gastronomic offerings and with hidden treasure like the Palau de la Música Catalana.
You can explore these routes with the bikes which we can provide you with or, if you prefer to rest, submerge yourself in the spa Aire de Barcelona just three minutes from your bedroom and with 20% discount for chic&basic Born customers.
