Location in El Born area is excellent and a block away from the Metro. There's a small tapas restaurant right next door that open from breakfast and dinner, but that's about it, which makes the area a bustling during the day but quiet at night. We couldn't believe that we're actually in the city of Barcelona! We were welcomed and...

Having stayed in Barcelona before I knew where I wanted to stay and stay away from! C&B Born was in the perfect area surrounded by nice bars and restaurants without the throngs of tourists everywhere and a gorgeous park on its doorstep! We got upgraded to the largest room which was a nice little perk, big bed, good shower, descent...

Great concept, extremely good value, astonishingly helpful and friendly staff (seriously, could have stayed in the lobby and chatted to them all day!) and Born is fantastic. The hotel is in a stunning old building with a very grand staircase and a contemporary design. It's definitely got a bit of wow factor, is original and had some nice touches, though...

We stayed at the Hotel back in 2008 .. Loved the Hotel and el Born! The restaurant at the Hotel has great food and great service. The staff at the hotel was friendly and the rooms untraditional. A fun expirience.

Was lucky to book this hotel just two days before the start of MWC - alternative vacant options at that time could be found either in 50+ kilometers from city center (in Granollers and other outskirts) or at a whopping 800 EUR per night (offer from nearby INDIGO boutique hotel).

Both my daughters and son had stayed here and encouraged us to do the same. The position is excellent just near the Estació de França train station and handy for everywhere. It's very unusual with the changing ambience you do yourself with the different lighting. We also liked the lounge with free coffee, tea and biscuits and of course wi-fi....

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighbourhood Profile
El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few places that live and breathe such exciting energy regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A hotel that combines the traditional with the futuristic in a privileged environment: a building that is more than 100 years old with spectacular ceilings over seven metres high and spaces designed to surprise and enjoy. Its rooms, with an original glass shower in the room, are chameleon-like: you can change the colour depending on your mood. The passageways, full of enchantment and mystery, mutate with colour changes from the lights in the rooms. Enjoy our “Beyourself” and “Helpyourself” area in the common area where you can relax listening to music, reading any of our books or having a coffe, tea or water for free. Also, if you want to move about the city at your own pace, bicycles are available to rent. Once you try them, you won’t want to use any other transport in Barcelona. You can also enjoy our chic&basic tour, a two hour walk through Ciutat Vella in which we will mix history with some curiosities, as well as gastronomic and nightlife suggestions. Enjoy it on Tuesdays, Thursdays or Saturdays at 10:00am. ... more   less
