“Very good boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of June 2014 having booked early at a rate of 371 euros for a Classic double room.
This is a very modern hotel in a good location on the Gran Via midway between the Plaza Espanya and the Plaza Catalunya, with some excellent cafes and tapas bars within a couple of minutes walk.
We asked for a quiet room and were given one on the fifth floor facing the park at the rear of the building which was very quiet in the evening & night, but noisy during the afternoon when families were playing in the park when we were trying to have a late afternoon siesta. The en-suite is fairly small and would be better with improved lighting.
All of the staff we encountered were very helpful and extremely polite and our room was spotlessly cleaned everyday by the excellent housekeeping staff.
The only negative point is the breakfast. There is scrambled eggs, bacon and sausages on offer, being kept warm with undertray heaters, but everyday we were there all of these items were completely cold, which is not good at 14 euros pp, although this was reduced to 11 euros pp as we had breakfast every day of our stay.. However, there is a also comprehensive selection of continental breakfast items.
The rooftop pool and lounging area is very good to relax after a day out walking.
Be aware although the hotel states it has a Lounge on the 1st floor, it is only used as a breakfast room and is not a Bar/Lounge as you might expect.
Overall I would agree with most of the positive comments previously posted and this is a very good hotel for the price paid.

We stayed here upon our arrival in Barcelona for 4 nights and returned after touring for our last night before flying home. The staff was always friendly and helpful no matter who was on the desk. The hotel emailed us instructions on how to arrive on the Aerobus from the airport. We stayed on the seventh floor in room 74 the first visit. It was large, modern with a beautiful, large terrace. Our last night was room 73, quite a bit smaller but still nice with a sitting area and smaller terrace. The hotel is a perfect location. Easy walk to La Rambla, sights and restaurants.

Room Tip: Seventh floor rooms are suites and definitely worth the added cost for space and terrace Room 74 is...

I never normally write reviews but had to write something following a really lovely weekend stay at this excellent hotel. It is in a great location near some lovely coffee shops and tapas bars. The rooms are modern and v comfortable and the staff are excellent. The small pool, loungers and seating area on the roof are also a great touch. This is a really great place to stay!

Stayed here for 4 nights and couldn't find any faults with the place. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It's ideally located for the aerobus and is only a few minutes from la rambla and plaza catalunya. We asked about breakfast and the staff recommended 2 nearby bakeries - a coffee and croissant for €1.50? you can't go wrong!
The rooms are clean and the wifi is very good. There's a small pool and seating area on the roof which is an added bonus when you want a break from the city streets. Many thanks to the staff who made our stay as pleasant as possible - will definitely stay here again.

Dear Sharon M

First of all, thank you very much for sharing your Soho Experience with us and with the Tripadvisor community.

It is always a big pleasure to see that our guests had a good time not only visiting Barcelona, also inside the Hotel. All our staff tries hard every day to make our guests fell like home, or if possible, even better. So hearing words like yours helps us to keep working in the right direction.

It is always important to us finding the desired service for each guest. In case of breakfast, some like to start the day faster and others prefer to start the day with a big and relaxing breakfast buffet. The point is finding the perfect place for each ones wishes at every moment.

If you include Barcelona in your future travel plans, it will be a great pleasure for us to welcome you back into Hotel Soho Barcelona.

Best regards,
Hotel Soho Staff

My boyfriend and I arrived in Barcelona desperately seeking a hotel because our train was late and we missed check in at Barcelona Rooms so we called Soho Hotel and we were so happy we did! The hotel is very modern and cool with friendly reception and the amenities were worthy of a 4 star hotel. Very comfortable and clean with spacious rooms and a big bed! We were sad it was too cold out to swim but the hotel also has a beautiful roof top pool that would be great during peak season! Had a wonderful stay!

Nice friendly staff helpful at all times, really modern with great speed of WiFi throughout the building. Great location once you learn the Metro system, also only a short walk from La Rambla and round the corner from the aerobus stop for when your trip is over, would recommend and return.
