Hotel Soho Barcelona is a smart and contemporary property in the central Eixample district of the city, just a few hundred yards from Plaça de la Universitat.
The hotel is a 2-minute walk from the Urgell Metro station on Gran Via de les Corts. Eixample borders the old city (Ciutat Vella), so many of Barcelona's most celebrated sights, such as the Plaça de Catalunya, Las Ramblas and the Gothic Cathedral, are within a 20-minute walk. Passeig de Gràcia, one of the city's major shopping streets, is around 15 minutes' walk away.
The hotel's showpiece is its top-floor terrace with outdoor pool and solarium -- a perfect place to recharge after a busy day's sightseeing. There is also a ground-floor bar and lounge, a media centre and a breakfast room.
Basic Rooms overlook the courtyard, so while these rooms are the cheapest, they are also the quietest. Standard Rooms overlook the Gran Via and are slightly larger. Executive Rooms are larger again and, located on the corner of the building, have double-aspect views. You can choose a double or twin version of each room type. Seventh-floor Terrace Rooms are the hotel's biggest, and each has a balcony. All rooms have free Wi-Fi, contemporary décor, air conditioning, a safe, a TV with international channels and beds that are praised by Frommer's as "super-comfortable".
