Opened in 2006, this chic six-story hotel has 78 petite rooms with zebra-striped lampshades, Mondrian-esque murals behind the beds, and flat-screen TVs. It's also surprisingly good value for money, but take a closer look and you'll notice where they've made savings: The cups in the bathrooms are paper not glass, there's a low-power hair dryer, and you'll find no minibar (although there are free-access fridges stocked with water). There are some great perks, though, not least of which is its location on the edge of the chic El Born district, and a rooftop sundeck and pool overlooking the medieval quarter. Skip breakfast (you'll get much better food in one of the neighborhood cafés), but make a point of going along to a live jazz session (Thursdays and Fridays only) in Colors, the hotel restaurant.
