Expert review of Gat Xino

Chic on a budget.

The Xino and its more modest sister hotel, the Gat Raval (Carrer de Joaquin Costa 44, Raval, 08001) were the first to bring the concept of cheap ’n’ chic to Barcelona hotels, though you shouldn’t expect too much by way of amenities. Nowadays other hotels have sprung up to meet this demand (see Market Hotel and Chic & Basic Born), however, so it's no longer the leader of the pack.

Location: 

The Gat hotels are aimed at a younger crowd, and older travellers may feel intimidated by the hustle of C/Hospital, although La Rambla is just a short stroll away, as is (in the opposite direction) the MACBA.

Bedrooms: 

The colour scheme is snowy white and lime green, with further splashes of colour in the prints of backlit Raval streetlife above the beds, but otherwise the rooms are quite basic. Be warned too that they can be fairly tiny – avoid 401 if you can. Suites are also available, one of which has a rooftop terrace, though I would say the others are nicer rooms.
