The Soho House brand has long thrived for its ability to adapt to its specific city, while also retaining its unmistakable mission—to create a comfortable home away from home for the cosmopolitan creative class. In Barcelona, its maiden Spanish venture has achieved all this and more. Housed in a 19th-century compound, centered by a striking glass atrium, the hotel’s Juliet balconies (which afford views of Gaudi’s spires), gothic chandeliers, and Spanish tiles are a tribute to its Catalan host—even while hallmark elements like the armada of striped chairs that typically line the signature rooftop pool and charming selection of early 20th-century furniture remain. The 57 bedrooms span the size spectrum, though even the smallest, at a petite 260 square feet, manage to make room for memorable perks such as walk-in rain showers, vintage radios, and fluffy Frette bathrobes. Add a decadent spa and a ground-floor outpost of Cecconi’s, a contemporary Italian gem known for hearty Venetian cuisine, and you’ve got all the trappings for a first-class stay.
In the Area
The hotel is a short stroll from Las Ramblas (and the Drassanes metro stop), Barcelona’s most famous pedestrian boulevard that’s bursting at the seams with souvenir vendors, buskers, and street artists. If you’re seeking a quieter spot, there’s the underrated Gaudi landmark, Palau Guell, a medieval residence built for an industrial tycoon and one of the storied architect’s first pieces of work. A ten-minute walk will bring you to the gargoyles of La Catedral in the nucleus of the Gothic Quarter—for one of the best bird’s-eye views of the vibrant city, head to its roof and tower. And for an irreverent take on tapas, there’s Bar Cañete, a family-run establishment that specializes in rare cuts of Iberico pork.
How to Get There
Mauricio took amazing care of our brunch! It is an experience which hotel enthusiasts or “foodies” should not miss out! Furthermore, the concept of cecconis is as well in Barcelona well established, one feels like being in London. Thank you for being what you are.
I'm a worldwide member and have to say this is the best house I've ever been to. It's got all the decadence and character of a soho house mixed with catalan touches. The bar is beautiful, the menu at the restaurant is a mix of tapas and 'classic soho dishes'. The staff are just lovely. Can't recommend it enough :)
Just returned from a 2 night stay at The Soho House and I cannot recommend this hotel enough.
We were greeted on arrival by very helpful, friendly staff and shown to our room. The room was beautiful, great amenities and lots of lovely little extra touches, great bathrooms. Victor who showed us to our room could not have been more helpful. Each evening between 6-8pm a member of staff knocked on your door with a cocktail trolley and offered you a cocktail of your choice whilst you got ready for dinner. We were there over valentines and again staff knocked on our door and gave us a plate of strawberries dipped in chocolate with a half bottle of champagne. The staff were so happy and friendly.
Hotel has a beautiful roof top bar and pool but it does get busy. Definitely worth a stay.
Had a lovely time here for a friends Birthday luncheon. Great cocktails, lovely food with superb surroundings. Enjoyed using the photo booth after dinner and a little tipsy ! We did pop in the terrace pool after to enjoy the vibes and soak up some of the sun which was a great way to finish the afternoon
Great location, very comfy rooms with Cowshed products, super friendly staff (not always a given at some Soho Houses), good food and even better cocktails. Easy access to the waterfront and gothic quarter, nice Spa and pool, great rooftop bar.
