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).
