“Browsing the Internet for a place to stay at in Barcelona, I chanced upon Hotel SOHO and couldnt believe the pictures on the wesbite. Everything looked perfect, modern and very stylish, just as we like it. My excitement soon turned to scepticism when I realised that most hotels post glossy pics on their sites and when you actually land up, its a whole different picture. Not with Hotel SOHO. It was everything we dreamed of, and more!
Our first impression as we walked into the lobby area was ‘WOW’. We we greeted by Alessio, who was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room was amazing. Luckily we got a back-facing room, as we had requested, away from the noise of the main road. Everything about it was perfect! It was super comfortable and very convenient, while at the same time, very modern and classy. Both of us really appreciate good design and from the doorknobs to the window blinds, everything was brilliantly thought out. We stayed here 8 nights, and every single night, after a long day out in the sun, sightseeing and partying, coming ‘home’ to our room was bliss. The media centre, with its free internet access was a pure bonus!
If I could make a few suggestions, they would be: Better lightning in the bathroom, and the possibility to make coffee/tea in the room (when room service is closed).
Oliver, our wonderful friend at the reception made our stay so worthwhile with his many suggestions for places to go and where to eat. I was touched by the grace and hospitability of everyone who worked there. When my husband was ill for 2 days, we were helped with medicine and room service – beyond the call of duty. When I expressed my thanks for this, I was told to think of the place as my home and feel free to ask for anything we might need. Such service is rare to come by these days, and we are very happy with our entire experience. Thank you!
We will surely return to Barcelona, and there is only one hotel to stay at – Hotel SOHO. See you soon Alessio and Oliver!”
