Reviewed 14 June 2012

We had planned a 4-day weekend in Barcelona, and Soho Hotel in the heart of Eixampla was a great place to stay. I highly recommend it.
The hotel can easily be reached from the airport through Aerobus (Stop at Urgell - the bus stop is at the intersection, opposite corner of the hotel, cost from airport is $6.75 one-way or $9.75 return. On the way back to the airport the bus stop is one block away down at the corner of Comte d'Urgell and Sepulveda, a 5min walk from the hotel).

We had booked a Terrace Room (#73 - seventh floor with views to the gardens at the back). The hotel is very modern in design. The staff is really great, very friendly. As mentioned in other reviews the lights in the room are rather dim, but this wasn't a problem for us. As for the bathroom which has a glass partition separating it from the bedroom, it can be easily shut off by electric blinds.

Breakfast was excellent, with cold cuts and danish pastries, doughnuts, fruits and yoghurt. Coffee is available through an expresso machine. There are a few tables outside, so you can enjoy your morning expresso in the fresh air.

The rooms have cable TV, with Spanish channels, english (BBC World News, Fox, and 1 or 2 more, French TV5 Monde, and a German channel).

The Metro/Subway station is just outside the hotel (Urgell station). The University is a 10min walk, plaça Catalunya 15min, La Rambla 15min.

There are quite a few restaurants near the hotel (take the Villaroeal st and turn right onto Diputacio).

Room Tip: If you can afford them, go for a Terrace room which will give you that extra space. Preferably at th...

Really friendly & helpful staff upon check-in. It's always nice when you open the door to your room and it turns out to be spacious, modern & comfortable. The decor was nice, the bed was comfortable, and we never heard any of the other guests or too much street noise, which was an issue with our friends who stayed at other hotels around town.
The hotel is located very close to a metro stop and kind of in walking distance to La Rambla and all that. If you are a big walker, it's not too bad of a walk up to some of the Gaudi buildings.
It's worth noting that there is an amazing Tiki bar a few blocks away, and a great health food market a few doors down.
I only have two issues with the hotel - first, we couldn't take a shower without flooding the entire bathroom (the water pressure was great, tho!). Second, we went up to the outdoor rooftop lounge and ordered a few cervezas. After about 30 minutes, we gave up and went back to our room. I tried to call and cancel but couldn't get through, so eventually, they found us and brought the beers to our room. No big whoop.

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in May 2012. The hotel has some very good points and is quite good value for money. It's a 3 star hotel I think but it's rooms are easily the quality of a 4. The roof top pool area is a winner, however you do need to get in early as it gets crowed and it is actually quite small. The wifi is good, although I didn't have the breakfast, I think it was well priced for a hotel at 13 euros or 10 euros if you booked it for each day of your stay. The hotel is placed in a good location, only about a 10 minute walk into the city centre, but far enough out to be away from the tourist area.

located close enough to the action, but far enough to be peaceful and quiet. there is a bus stop and subway stop right around the block. very convenient.

the room is trendy and funky, but is still functional. had enough storage and surface space. rooms were clean and comfortable. bathroom though was weird. had big issue with the shower as the enclosure was too small, and showering resulted the bathroom floor getting all wet.

breakfast was ok. a bit limited and repetitive.

service was nice. they were always up to help and answer questions.

Great hotel with helpful staff especially Daniela. Comfy beds & good shower and lovely breakfast. Good location for sights/beaches/shopping/public transport. We would stay here again. We stayed for a week 31/5 - 7/6 and had a room at the back and it was quiet enough to sleep as we were worried about that as we live out in the countryside so are used to quiet.
We went to MotoGP and could walk to the bus stop in 20 mins which only took 25 mins to circuit so it was easy. A fantastic holiday!
