So many choices in Barcelona. Fantastic city, great restaurants, great bars, great people, great architecture......you get the point. This hotel is just another "great" to go along with the rest of the city. For the price, it's a bargain. The room was very stylish and "Soho" is a fitting name for such a cool atmosphere. But that aside, the staff here are truly professionals and not just "workers". This review is 5 months late but i'm sure it is still accurate. From the moment we arrived, we knew we made the right decision. The location is right on the Metro line, easy access from airport. Beautiful and comfortable neighborhood and on a lovely, tree lined street. All the "action" of the city is within easy reach by transit, on foot, or taxi....the choice is yours. Some great places to eat and drink very nearby and you mustn't miss the famous Escriba chocolatier and Cafe, directly across the street from the Soho. It is a landmark in it's own right.
I've saved the best for last. I already mentioned the professionalism of the staff. They were all wonderful. Even the cleaning staff would greet you with a genuine smile in the hallways and wish you a "buenos dias!". The concierges outdid themselves all the time. After only a day or two, most of them already knew you by name and would greet you personally as you walked into the lobby and handed you your keys without you having to remind them which room you were staying in. Though all the staff were outstanding, a special shout out and honorable mention must go out to the concierge Alessio. He was without doubt the best concierge i have dealt with, including some of the "real" 5-star hotels and resorts i have been lucky enough to stay in. He was a true professional and did his job like it wasn't a job. It was like being shown around the city by a good friend or relative who truly loved their city and wanted you to truly love it as well. You can't pay enough for that kind of service. This man deserves all the accolades that i can think of. Hopefully for people reading this review, he is still working there. If he isn't, i would want to stay at a hotel where he is presently. That's how good he is at what he does!
To sum it up, i'd say there are many great hotels in Barcelona and you can't go wrong with many of them and this place falls in that category. Just book it and enjoy.
