“My room was a spacious modern design dream”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

Was given a free upgrade. The room was more like an apartment, windows on 2 sides, for which I initially paid just over €60/night. Staff was patient and helpful. Super clean. Very quiet, very good huge bed.
Central, especially if you use the clean, prompt and frequent Barcelona buses and Metro.

Only the breakfast seemed overpriced at €14, but there are lots of breakfast places nearby.

Room Tip: Request a quiet room when you boobk ahead. Mine was 5. Floor.

Great central location and the staff were really helpful especially with local places to see and eat out. Alessi on reception was exceptional and couldn't have been more helpful.

Rooms were clean, comfortable and modern. Only downside was that there was no tea or coffee facilities in the room.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Gran Via can be noisy.

Just back from 3 nights at Hotel Soho in Barcelona. Central location, great value for money, comfy beds, exceptionally clean rooms and the big bonus is the exceptionally friendly and helpful staff. They couldn't do enough for us - provided maps, helped with printing boarding passes, provided suggestions - just great. A big thumbs up - would return and recommend to others.

I arrived just after the 2pm check-in, having found the hotel easily enough as the bus from the airport drives past it and stops just up the road, and was greeted by the friendly, english speaking staff at the front desk. Check-in was quick and simple and I was even given a free upgrade, which is always a plus. My partner arrived shortly after and was shown to our room.
The room itself was perfect for our stay; a decent sized, comfortable bed, big TV and a powerful shower. And although opening the windows let in the noise from the main road closing them immediately returned the room to near silence.
It was a great location, Placa del Universitat being barely 5 minutes up the road. Urgell Metro station was also just outside making it very easy to travel all over the city. The hotels central location also allowed us to come and go as we pleased throughout the day.
All the staff were very friendly & helpful throughout our stay, and we are already planning a return visit.

We stayed at the Soho Hotel during our visit to Barcelona in November for two days before departing on a cruise.
The people at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful. They knew the city and helped us so we were able to make the best use of our time.
The room was clean and cozy. It was on a main street, so there was noise from the traffic below.
The breakfast buffet was very good.

Stayed here for a long weekend in October. It seemed to be really reasonable for a 3 night stay so I was expecting it to be pretty basic, but the hotel definitely exceeded my expectations!
It's in a great location, within easy walking distance of Ramblas, the nearest subway is right outside as well which makes it a good base for everything you want to see and do in Barcelona. The room was larger than I expected too and very clean. The only possible negative point I can give is that the lighting was quite poor - we had a room facing the courtyard though so maybe a room with a view of the street would have been better, however this would not stop me from recommending this hotel to friends or returning there myself!! Lovely hotel and the staff were really friendly too! Great value for money because of the excellent location.

We stayed at the Soho hotel in Barcelona for a long weekend. The location is great, it's a short walk to Ramblas but it's in a quiet residential area so it's nice to get away from the hustle and bustle after a day in Barcelona. The rooms are a good size and have a modern feel about it. Beds were comfortable as well. Hotel has a great roof terrace with plenty of space to relax and unwind on the comfy sofas. There is a small pool on the roof which is nice to chill in after a day in Barcelona. Staff were really helpful as well. Only downside to our room was that it was overlooking the central courtyard and so the room was quite dark, if possible try and get a room overlooking the street. Overall great hotel and would go back their.

Dear Guest,

We’re particularly proud to read that our hotel exceeded your expectations. The location of the Hotel Soho Barcelona in our perception is the same as you described: Close to everything but not in the hectic middle of it.

Hopefully, you have the opportunity to return to Barcelona in the future and until then, we wish you equally comforting and relaxing hotel stays wherever you go.

With kind regards,
