On the border between the Raval, the Gothic quarter and the district of the Eixample, from this hotel you can to visit the historic old town in the city on foot or by bicycle, where the main monuments are located. However, if you need to use public transport, the proximity of the hotel to Plaza Cataluña offers travellers ideal transport connections: Metro stops L1 and L3, the majority of bus lines, as well as local trains are all situated just two minutes away from the hotel. Transfer to the airport is also very simple from chic&basic Lemon thanks to several shuttle buses and trains that operate this route frequently.

Because by staying with us, you can enjoy three districts in one location, let’s discover all the leisure possibilities offered by each one of them:

A Hotel in the Old Town

We wouldn’t want to appear too pretentious, but we are convinced that the Raval is possibly the area with the best cultural offer in the country. This is because it houses first rate cultural institutions such as the Barcelona Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB), the Contemporary Art Museum (MACBA), and the Filmoteca de Catalunya, but also because it boasts the most active and multicultural social fabric in the city.

Market places, restaurants, designer bars and multiple shops along with their multicultural inhabitants, make up the most charming and authentic side of the district.

And with legendary streets such as the Ramblas and the Boquería market, the Raval district invites you to stroll its streets.

A Hotel close to Paseo de Gracia

In contrast to the Raval, the Eixample -traditionally the most elegant area of the city- is just ten minutes’ walk from the chic&basic Lemon. In a pleasant walk from the hotel to Paseo de Gracia, you can reach the heart of modernist Barcelona, featuring works of recognized international fame by Antoni Gaudí and Puig y Cadafalch such as the Casa Batlló, the Casa Amatller and la Pedrera.

A walk along this avenue is like being transported back to the prosperity of the end of the nineteenth century of the bourgeoisie of the time. This was once the most prestigious street in the city, and remains so today thanks to its luxury stores and restaurants.

A Hotel in the Barcelona Gothic quarter

The Gothic quarter is also located just a short distance from the hotel; the district in which the ancient Roman and medieval Barcelona was built.

The labyrinth alleys weave alongside fine churches such as Santa Maria del Pi, the Cathedral, Gothic palaces, bustling plazas such as Plaza Real, or quieter ones such as Plaza San Felip, and the busy Portal del Ángel, the shopping street par excellence.

Its strategic combination of factors means that chic&basic Lemon does not only burst with positive energy from every corner, but it is also located in the heart of the city’s cultural and leisure hub, an ideal place from which to explore the city’s highlights, but also to get lost in, and discover the surprises of this city of contrasts.
