Chic And Basic Tallers Hotel Hotel Barcelona Reviews
Unique and comfortable lodging in prime Barcelona location Jul 15, 2008
I cannot possibly say enough good things about the Chic and Basic Tallers Hostal. The rooms are modern and stylish with clean design. The area is small but very sufficient, containing enough room for the bed and a bathroom area (sliding partition containing shower stall and toilet area). The rooms are wired with a flat screen TV, WiFi, and a MP3 player hookup or custom DJ set on the stereo. The beds are extremely comfortable and the rooms are very clean. The uniqueness of the hostal lies in its own take on the “bed and breakfast” concept. In the lobby area, there is a kitchenette for your use 24hrs a day, which is always clean and stocked with fruit, juice, coffee, bread, milk, ham, cheese, cookies, and water. Patrons are encouraged to eat whenever they like and even pack a sandwich to take with them and are only asked to clean up after themselves. The lobby area also has a computer with internet access, area information, and an excellent desk staff (fluent in English). Additionally, it is located one block from the Universitat metro stop (L1 and L2 lines) and about 4 blocks from Las Ramblas near the Placa de Catalunya end. While the area is considered a haven for pickpockets, I had no troubles there even when alone.
NOTE: the hostal is located on the 2nd and 3rd floors of a small apartment building, and the entrance is relatively unmarked (look for building number). There is a buzzer located near the door for contacting the staff, as the doors are locked during most hours.
