Historical Traveler Reviews Soho Hotel Barcelona
Perfect for romantic getaway
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.
The room was perfectly clean when we first found it. The bed was so comfortable, and the flatscreen telly definitely added to the luxury. For the first five minutes, my mates and I were very excited about the state-of-the-art technology working the blinds and lighting in the room!
Hotel staff were friendly and very helpful. Not all of them spoke fluent English, although they certainly got points for trying. They recommended some excellent restaurants and places to shop. Breakfast buffet was delicious and in a gorgeous little dining area.
Free internet access proved useful during my stay.
It was still too cold in March to make use of the jacuzzi/pool, but the terrace would have been a great place to lie in the sun if we had had the time. Not so sure I would call it a 'panoramic view of the city' though - for that, you should definitely hit Park Guell instead.
I liked where the hotel was located - it wasn't too busy and crowded like on Las Ramblas, but all the main tourist spots are still within easy reach. There are no problems walking along the streets in the area, provided it is sunny and you have a map to keep track of where you are going. Otherwise, there are always taxis to turn to, which are relatively cheap.
Nightlife in the area isn't too great, and Port Olympic is pretty far away for a drunk tourist to find her way home - but the hotel's complimentary cava champagne provided a good night in!
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.
The hotel has a computer with internet access which I used each morning for free. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. As far as location goes, the hotel is not in the middle of the tourist area but only about a 10 minute walk away.
We paid 120 EUR each night. Considering it was a festival weekend I thought it was a great deal. I would definitely stay here again.
Soho? So No!!
Soho? So no! For example, no service, no accomodation for the hotel chain´s 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.
New hotel still working on it...
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.
we chose a room with a view of the gran via. a little noisy at times which i suspect is to be expected. would recommend rooms not facing the gran via for those who may have trouble sleeping.
the location is decent, but i would have stayed at the hotel B (another hotel from nuñez and navarro) if i could have done it again for the lower price but not as ideal location.
we stayed for four nights in late september, and the hotel had just opened. i noticed lots of staff working on final touches. once they work out the kinks, i suspect things will be great.
lastly, there is free internet.
''The place in Barcelona''
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.
Nice for a city stay
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.
The hotel is a design hotel. They have different lighting situations for the room (for example "hot"). In our room one light didn't work and the powerd blind did also not work proberly. We didn't mention the defects prior to checking out so I can't tell you if the very friendly staff would have repaired it. But we got a free breakfast therefore.
As mentioned the staff is very ok, also the breakfast is good. The pool is small but for a city hotel it's ok. The hotel is very new so some things were not fineshed at our stay - but that was not a problem at all.
The bathroom is great - espacially four couples! The bathtub is behind a window but there is a blind so you can also stay at the hotel in one room if you are not a couple ;-)
So I would recommend the hotel - I think what you get for the price is really ok!!

... take one last deep breath, lie down on the table, set my arm out and it is on. The girls are clicking away with their cameras and giggling at my misery. I clutch my hair at the back of my head with my right hand and tightly shut my eyes.

In the morning, we went to the hospital so Yang could have a check-up. Thats the reason why we had to come back to Barcelona, to see the same doctor. Everything all cool.

It was getting fairly late when we got of the train on the way back to the hotel and we had agreed that we didn’t have much energy for another very late night, especially with a flight back to England the following day and work the day after so for once we managed to get to sleep at a reasonably civilised ...
