1 min walk from the El Born area, trendy boutiques, tapas bars and restaurants. Close to the Picasso museum and the port and beach area. Only a 10 minute walk to las ramblas.
Metro station and train station 2 mins away. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Barcelona!
Clean and comfortable rooms, friendly staff, good wifi - all at an affordable price. Good option for budget conscious travellers.
Excellent hotel, very clean and staff were very helpful. The hotel is very central and is only 5mins from a metro station and 10-15 min walk to playa de cataluyna and la ramblas. Got a taxi from the airport to the hotel and cost approx 25€ due to the time of our flight coming into Barcelona, however there is an excellent bus service to and from the airport which we got back to the airport which only cost 5.90€ for a single. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going and would go back too
We stayed at Acta Mimic in early August after making the trip from Australia for the Europe summer and were very happy with our choice. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made our trip a memorable one. We would have no problem recommending to anyone!
we've been in Chic&Basic Tallers in sep 2014 and we have only great things to say about it.
first, the location is awesome. the hotel is located on the universtat so the bus from the airport dropped us very close the hostel.
the hostel is near the rambla. it's really close to many of the shops so it's great for shoping.
the metro is right next to the hotel too so u can travel anywhere u want easily.
we got a really small room... so if u are a big guy u need to book the biggest room they have and it will be ok.
it's really quiet in the room, although it's close to the centre.
there's a good wi-fi there and a good air-condition.
it's seems that the place was renovated recently, u can smell a bit the new paint, but it's ok.
the best thing of the hostel is the service. nikos and luiz are very lovely and helped us whenever we needed something.
there's a dining room that u can use for breakfast any time of the day u want.
it's really homey, there's a great coffee machine, and small things that makes the difference.
next to the dining room there's a computer u can use anytime of the day.
it's not a hotel, it's a hostel... but it delivers anything u need (if u're not fussy too much).
in general it had a great value for the money we paid.

"Nice hotel close to Las Ramblas and bus station."
We were a party of four which wanted to stay in a room together. This arrangement is hard to find but was well accommodated in this hotel. The room was spacious and the hotel was quiet - no road notice. Air conditioning great. Nice cafe two doors from the hotel so we would have breakfast there and head out for the day. Pleasant walk to Las Ramblas, market Barri Gotic.

"Great spacious rooms, amazingly central location"
The Violeta boutiqe type apt/rooms are incredibly spacious. Tall ceilings and brigth neutral colours throughout. We had double balcony doors with view to the city and it all reminded us about renaissance feel apt. It is incredible value for money and although it does not provide all the same services as in a luxury hotel (pool, restaurant, bars) the rooms and accomodation is incredible with very helpful and personalised reception service, free coffee and tea in the morning.
The rooms are larger and better than most hotels in the 4* category and equal to some in 5* category. There is less of whats not needed but lots of what makes the big difference
We did stay a few nigths in a 5* hotel that has a more luxury feel to linen, services, decoration but considering the Violeta and what it offers it is certainly the place we will return to on our next long weekend in Barcelona.
Catalunya square is literally around the corner and so is many of the best restaurants and places to visit during nigths as well.
There was also a coach service to La Roca Village outlet village from rigth outside our entrance door
