“Trendy hotel but no bar”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

After reading good reviews on here I opted for this hotel.

There are more central hotels than this and it is on a very busy road. That said the staff are friendly and helpful even when u had my iPhone pinched in Barcelona .

The room I was in was very trendy but couples beware the glass window from the bedroom Into the bathroom leaves little for the imagination if one of you is in the bath! It looks cool though.

My only criticism is that there is no bar here. They should have a rooftop bar where to enjoy drinks at night but alas they shut the pool area at 9pm so nowhere to have a drink except in your bedroom or if course go out .

Overall I would recommend it but for similar money you could stay in the grand hotel central which is more central and has a nice rooftop pool and bar.

Fantastic trendy hotel at a good price. Close to the metro ( just across the street) and within walking distance ( 10 -15 minutes) to great shops, restaurants etc. Friendly helpful staff and nice to have the terrace pool area to recover from a tough day/night enjoying Barcelona.
The only thing that wasn't ideal from a girls perspective is that the lighting in the room was not so great for doing makeup. However on the positive, after the late Barcelona nights the lower lighting made for a much more flattering reflection in the mirror in the morning!!

I liked the design of this hotel and how well they have distributed all spaces. Also it is in a prime location and close to all tourist landmarks. We stayed only for two nights but plan to revisit this amazing city again and hopefully we will stay in Soho again.

Fab - wht can I say it has the best location close to all landmarks of interest! The staff are very helpful and will help you on your travels whatever you require to see, friendly helpful staff. The rooms are clean and stylish - prob won't suit everyone but I liked the whole setup. The bed was comfortable it was very quiet an dark. Great night sleep. The pool is small but had a great afternoon on the terrace chilling out! I loved the stay here and would go back for sure!

I stayed there for four nights and I must admit it was generally ok. Pros: nice,safe close to placa Catalunya location, Clean. Helpful and gentle staff. Cons: bad lighting (I couldn't put my make up on easily during the night nor read). The window blinds didn't capture all of the morning light. The bathroom doors didn't close well (so you might feel insecure about noises coming from natural activity).6.5/10 for me

This is a very "modern" hotel -- it took me a couple minutes to figure out how to work the lights and the bathroom sink!

Overall, the room was quite large, and the bed practically filled up the whole space. Even though we were on the 5th floor, facing the street, there wasn't really any noise and we had a very comfortable sleep. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Just a little on the expensive side for me. Great location to walk around the city, or to catch buses to the airport.

The hotel location is very close to the city centre, yet not in the middle of the hustle. The staff were very nice, very helpful, even advised on few restaurants and few activities to do which turned out to be a great experience. The rooms are fairly new with large LCD tv. The bathrooms are clean and nice. All in all, it was a lovely experience and I would personally book in this hotel again when I'm in Barcelona next time.
