... thing, considering the waves of people that were walking down the street to the game! The game was not too exciting - other than the Barca song and chant that began the match. It was the last game of the season, so it didn't make a difference in the standings, and Barca had a lead throughout the game. At the end of the game though, there was a celebration of a player who was retiring, Eric Abidal. There ...
... is an awesome giant park created by Gaudi that is covered in mosaics and has a beautiful view of Barcelona. Throughout this park there were numerous buskers and people selling random little souvenirs hanging from umbrellas which added quite nicely to the atmosphere. There was also a funky group of entertainers at the very top of the park that we sat and watched who were singing upbeat Spanish music, playing instruments, and ...
... with a decent view.
I’d had a notion that the concert might be little more than a glorified DJ set, so I was pleased to be proven wrong with the stage quite well populated by musicians, including a reasonable brass section which boded well for the performance of “Iron” which I expected to be the last number. It really was a very good set indeed. In the part of the crowd where we were there were a few people who knew some of the songs but ...
... their children, - or just quietly in contemplation.
By now we are quite ‘Gaudi-ed out’. Not in a negative sense, but just a little dazed. So as Gaudi escapists we visit the Barcelona history museum, and later take a walking tour of Barcelona’s ‘Gothic’ centre. The history museum is not a museum as we know it. No dusty exhibits behind glass panels here: it’s the real thing. But it’s most ...
... two days to squeeze in as much as we could, and we knew it'd be a bit of a rush. Our main goals were to tick off as many architectural wonders as possible, and eat our body weights in local cuisine. We knew we'd be missing large chunks of Barcelona, but Spain was a big place, and we only had 17 days at our disposal. Top of the list was naturally La Sagrada Familia.
La Sagrada Familia (The Holy Family) is a structural masterpiece designed by the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Soho Hotel Barcelona
Stayed for two nights at Hotel Soho with friends - the atmosphere was warm and romantic, and made me wish I were there with my bloke instead.
Fantastic Boutique Hotel - Exceptional
Stayed at the Soho Hotel for three nights from the 22-25 March. Booked via Easyjet. Hotel is fantastic, staff are very pleasent and extremely helpful. Rooms are great, extremely modern, Plasma screens, mood lighting and lots of space. Mini bar and room service which was very reasonable price. Breakfast was fantastic, everything you could ask for. Location is great, has a metro station right outside and is a 5-10 minute walk to the top of the Ramblas. Hotel has a pool and bar-be-que area on the roof of the hotel. Pool is small and very cold - but would be great in the summer. Will def recommend to friends and will go stay again.
Loved It !
On a package holiday in Spain we took a night in Barcelona and the hotel was brilliant. Love the mood lighting, the glass wall between bed and bath (with blinds should you wish for privacy ... or not!).
Room was a good size, tv good and my ultimate test of a hotel ... the shower was hot and had great power. 5/5.
The only downside was booking it on Hotels.com .. the map location was completely wrong (its correct on TripAdvisor) so we ended up walking for an hour trying to find the place. However, once found all was brilliant.
Location is great .. 10 mins from Place de Catalunya, the staff I thought were pleasant and free internet in the lower floor, fantastic!
We paid €220 via Hotels.com for a weekday night and would definately stay again.
My wife and I recently stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. I was a little worried beforehand because it is a brand new hotel and there were no reviews on TripAdvisor; however, everything was brilliant. The room was plenty big for 2 people, the shower/bath was a good size and the room had some interesting touches like mood lighting and remote controlled blinds on the very large windows. The beds were very comfortable. The A/C worked too good as it was nearly freezing every morning. Our room was on the back-side of the hotel and it was very quiet. Personally, I don't think having a room on the Gran Via side is any better because all you see is cars.
Soho? So No!!
Soho? So no! For example, no service, no accomodation for the hotel chainīs overbooking problems, no assistance, no pleasantries. No, no, no. If the hotel aspires to have a hip, minimalist, New York style, it should look to the Royalton in NY (or any of the Ian Schrager hotels - but it will have to keep in mind that those hotels are in the hospitality industry and provide service to customers). Unfortunately, the hotel confused rudeness with hipness, and falls far short.
hotel SOHO is a boutique hotel in fashion here in barcelona. the rooms are quite nice with lots of modern touches and a big LCD television (used rarely). i especially liked the glass wall/window separating the bathroom from the bedroom.
Just got back from a 5 days trip to Barcelona. We stayed at the Soho Hotel, on Gran Via. I am always a bit worry arriving in new Hotels. As soon as we step in the Hotel, we felt safe! Staff is very friendly and professional, room was comfortable, convenient, well design, way better then i expected...for the price! Roof top pool and loundge area was great after an all day walking. We usually don't order food from room service, made an exception and wasen't disapointed, it's a bargain compare to other Hotels room service. Soho is a walk of 15 min. from the major happening places, GREAT location as i woulden want to be on La Rambla... We like action but not all the time. DELICIOUS HOTEL (hey Serrano ham for breakfast on second level), internet for free downstairs, plasma screen salon, just want to go back!
Beauty is skin deep
We have just spent 3 nights at the Soho Hotel & were pleased by the slick design features & warm reception on arrival. It however has teething problems--lifts not working (we initially used the service lift ), minibar fridge not working (no cold drinks in scorching weather & no bar), seating already stained & clearly made with material that is hard to clean, window latches not working, poor storage facilities in our room & nowhere to hang used towels to dry. The bed was very spacious & comfortable so we did sleep well (in spite of considerable traffic noise even though we were on the 6th floor). No recompense was offered to apologise for any problems. The situation is good for exploring the glories of Barcelona.
We stayed in the SOHO Hotel in Barcelona for 4 nights. We wanted a room in one of the above floors and facing the Gran Via - which we also got. Even if the rooms have noice protecting windows it was a little bit noisy - but for us that was not a problem and for cities like Barcelona that should be ok. We got one of the bigger rooms - there was really enough space. On the floor plan I saw that there are also smaller rooms but I think they should also be big enough. There exist also room facing the patio of the hotel and rooms to the back that are facing a public children's playground. Both room types seem to be very quiet. But I wouldn't take the rooms facing the patio because they seem a little dark. The rooms to the back should be very ok.
