“A great palce to stay in Barcelona”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

A fab place to stay for a city break. Within walking distance of the central areas. Reception staff were helpful and friendly, Rooms spotlessly clean and very modern, Breakfast was great. I would certainly use this hotel again- great value for money .

Room Tip: We were at the front of the hote and the street noise didnt stop us sleeping !

Stayed here at the Soho Hotel for 3 nights, based on the previous reviews I had high expectations and was not disappointed!

Plus points:
Great location - Walking distance to all of the central areas and a hop, skip & jump from Urgell metro station.
*Hotel was spotless, staff friendly and always helpful, spoke excellent English (and seemingly every other language)!
*Stylish rooms, extraordinarily comfy bed and pillows!
*Rooftop terrace with small pool - again immaculate
*Powerful shower, lovely hot water!
*Didn't hear any noise between rooms - heard the odd person in the corridor and the odd person walking or dropping something but never heard a voice!
*Air con worked really well
*Range of lighting options - contrary to other reviews I had no problem putting my make up on etc!
*For breakfast, come out of the hotel and turn left. 100 yards on the left is a narrow lime green cafe which does coffee & croissant for E1.50. Can't fail with that!
*Airport shuttle easy to use & find. Only 6Euros.

Things to be mindful of (I don't want to say negatives as I really rate this hotel!)
*The hotel is on a very busy main road - we were on the 6th floor facing the road and traffic was clearly heard - probably not for you if you are a light sleeper. Or ask for a room on the back of the building.
*No bar but come out of the hotel and take a left, on the next corner is the H10 Cassanova hotel where cocktails are delicious! Room service is available - they seem to bring the drinks in from next door?!
*No tea or coffee making facilities in the room
*Our room didn't have a working safety deposit box but the receptionists have a safe where you can store your passports etc (you each hold a key, both are required to open the safe!) They said they were in the process of changing them over, may have just been bad timing for us but wasn't an issue anyway.
*The bathroom doors are sliding and don't fully close - the bathroom is also quite echoey!
*Wi-fi didn't connect for me on my I-Phone (Vodafone) but did on my boyfriends Samsung Galaxy (Orange). There is a computer zone in the basement if you needed internet access so no biggy not having it in the room!
*They do ask you to hand in your room key each time you leave the hotel but on return each time they checked our names (contrary to previous posts) so we didn't feel that our security was compromised, plus it was nice to not worry about taking the key around Barcelona with us!!!

Overall this is a great hotel in a great location for a really good price. They say you get what you pay for, in this instance I think you get a little bit more!

We enjoyed 3 nights at Soho Hotel in early April. We arrived earlier than the check-in time, but we were accommodated quickly. Our room was spotless and very modern. T bathroom was beautiful, surrounded by glass looking out into the room. The front desk staff were very helpful and gave us some wonderful restaurant recommendations. The location of the Soho is perfect...not too close to La Rambla but well within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this hotel and look forward to staying there again when visiting the amazing city of Barcelona!

We stayed at this hotel for 6 days. Hotel is nicely located, not too close to the center thus it is quite and relaxing from all the craziness. Interior is beautifully done with clean and contemporary design. For the first 2 days we were not able to access the wifi from our room so we asked for a different room; hotel personnel was really nice and promptly switched the room for us. Wifi worked great. The rooms here were super clean and efficient. There were ample storage space. Will stay here again

The title says it all really. Its a lovely hotel within walking distance of just about everything. Staff are very pleasant and helpful. Airport shuttle stops at the University a short walk away. Good cafes and restaurants nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are a bit noisy because of the traffic, but it is in the middle of the city.

Minimalist,clean,dark but all around good hotel in this vibrant city. Reception staff excellent and very helpful. We didn't have breakfast and so can't comment but everthing else about the hotel was fine. Great bakery across the road called Escriba - an award winning confectioner but they have a sit in coffee shop that serve great coffee and croissants. Also a good spot for well priced food /breakfast is the bar/restaurant at the junction. Out of the hotel and turn to the right 30 seconds away - can't remember the name. Placa Catalunya is 15 minutues walk. Metro easy to use and a good value hop on/off bus tour with 2 euro discount for purchasing the ticket at the hotel. La Rambla area is really touristy and very busy. It could be anywhere in the world - Much nicer areas for individual shops and more authentic resaurants are El Born and Gracia.

Room Tip: Room to the rear of the hotel should be quieter although over looking a play park.

We stayed in one of the Terrace rooms on the top floor of the hotel. The room is definitely worth the premium price. Great view of Barcelona, very comfortable terrace and absolutely no noise coming in from the street.

Getting to the hotel is easy, just take the airport shuttle, get off at Universitat and walk three blocks to the hotel. Staff was very welcome.

We didn't take advantage of the breakfast so don't have an opinion about it.

Biggest problem though is the quality of the Wireless Internet. It's free but barely usable. Definitely not on par with the rest of the hotel. Management should work on upgrading the WiFi service. This would actually keep us from booking again.

Room Tip: We loved the terrace room.
