“Nice stay at Soho”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I've had a pleasure stay at Soho Hotel in central Barcelona. Nice rooms, beautiful design, all over a positive experience. To improve the breakfast, it's just standard. Only negative point is the bad smell in the corridor leading to the rooms on the 2nd floor (lack of air ventilation I guess....). Recommended anyway.

I stayed at the Soho for 4 nights during October and it was a very pleasant stay. One of the best aspects of the stay was the staff, they were always helpful and ready with a smile.

On check in I wasn't overly happy with my room and they arranged me to move the next morning to a room at the rear overlooking the community park at the back, which was great I felt like part of the neighborhood:)

The hotel is short stroll to La Rambla and the easy to use metro is across the road, thee are numerous local cafes and restaurants for breakfast and lunch.

The design is modern and funky, the roof pool is very cool. Some of the bathroom design isnt that functional and needs attention, but the beds and the rooms overall are great.

I would definitely stay here again and am planning to do so in August 2013:)

Room Tip: Try and get a room at the rear

We are staying at the Soho Hotel for 2 days and we have two more. It's brilliant! The location is great, it's only 4-5 mins walk from Placa Catalunya and La Rambla in nice historic place. The rooms are well-equipped, the lights are stunning, you even have an additional sofa bed just to sit there and relax near the window. It's December but there weather is amazing: +15 C during the day. The bathroom has a bathtub, the interior is contemporary and looks very modern.

I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights after having been to Madrid and Seville. This was bay far the best hotel I have stayed at in Spain. The value you get for the price is excellent. The rooms are very clean and modern. The front office is extremely friendly and would give you tips and advise on were to go and show you directions. The locatoin of the hotel is also ideal. It is only a few minutes walking from La Rumbla and the famous Gracia Street.
All in all, I receomend this hotel.
I had stayed in a 35 Euro hotel in Madrid that was an absolute dirt hole. So the 20 additional euros that this hotel charges were absolutly worth it.

Yes, "urban cool" is a pretty good way of describing it - but unlike some hotels that merit this description, not 'up itself' in any way at all. Excellent service at all times - all staff spoke very good English and were very polite and helpful. Breakfast was very good with a decent choice of food. Room was very spacious and we both loved the design. Only slight disappointment was the balcony - not much of Barcelona to overlook as ours (as would all on that side) looked out onto the courtyard of a block of flats of similar height to the hotel. Balcony is therefore overlooked from all sides by flats and you look down into a communal area with a playground etc. The view over the top is quite limited too so, all in all, wouldn't go for the balcony next time. However, overall experience very positive and very good value given size of room and location. Oh, and the best value restaurant I've ever had the pleasure of eating at is just round the corner Soho Hotel plus Codium restaurant - hard to imagine there's a better value, classier combination anywhere.

Room Tip: Balconies don't necessarily offer much in the way of a view and may be overlooked from all sides...

Not sure what I can add that others haven't already said. My wife and I stayed for 5 days in Spetember. Very contemporary, feels like your own apartment rather than a hotel. High end materials throughout and extremely nice staff. Only complaint is that the King bed is actually two beds pushed together which is quite (and unfortunately) typical for Europe.

Location is good, close to the Las Ramblas but not on top of it, very chic, exceptional value, will stay again. Book it already!

We visited Soho Hotel for two nights in November 2012 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. From the moment of arrival, we were treated warmly and immediately given a free room upgrade. The reception staff couldn't have been more polite, we were given recommendations for food and places to visit, and help with travel and airport transfers.

The hotel has a fantastic aesthetic, and our room was immaculately designed without being too cold. The bed was Huge, shower powerful and hot, and the ambience of the room (as well as the company) was a pleasure to relax in/with.
