We stayed at the Soho Barcelona for three nights, May 1, 2 and 3. Chose the place due to tripadvisor ratings, it's accessibility for the Barcelona shuttle bus to and from the airport, along with a great rate obtained on the hotel's website. In fact, we obtained their spring/summer package which included an upgraded room, with breakfast each day, a bottle of cava and tapas one night, all taxes, for 378 Euros total. An average, per night, rate of about 126 Euros, which, after lots of research, turned out to be an outstanding rate for Barcelona during the period we were there.
As others have stated, the rooms and facilities are very nice, very hip and very contemporary. We were in a room facing the courtyard at the back of the hotel, so it was very quiet. We found the bed to be quite comfortable, and the room spacious enough for our needs. Enjoyed the breakfast each morning, also, which was completely adequate, as was the bottle of cava, with tapas, in the hotel's breakfast room the night we arrived, too tired and worn out to go out exploring for restaurants, after a very long 20+ hour, multi-stop, trip originating in San Francisco.
About the only complaint (and this isn't much of a complaint) is that we'd have preferred a location maybe two blocks closer to Cataluna Square, from where most of our sightseeing began. But the walk wasn't bad and, as stated earlier, the hotel's location on Gran Via was absolutely perfect for the Barcelona airport shuttle bus which stopped at the intersection of Gran Via and Urgell, only about a block and one-half from the hotel. Return shuttle to the airport was from a location about another block further away which runs parallel to Gran Via.
This hotel is a real find, especially if you can get it at a rate as good as that which I found. But even if at a higher rate, we'd highly recommend the Soho Barcelona, in all its aspects. And Barcelona itself is really a fascinating destination. Our days (2 full days and until about 500 p.m. the third day) were filled from early each morning, until late each night.
