Hotel SOHO Barcelona’s modernity, striking design, central location and excellent service has attracted an exclusive and discerning gay clientele, and word of mouth has turned it into a reference for this collective. This hotel, belonging to the NN Hotels group, has never had to adopt the gay-friendly label, a trend that has prevailed in hotels for over a decade, to indicate its openness to a homosexual clientele.
The hotel is located very near Avenida María Cristina, where the Pride Barcelona festival is held, this year taking place from 19 to 29 June and involving more than 30 associations and companies in the LGBT community. Pride Barcelona already has five editions under its belt and has consolidated itself as a key event in Southern Europe, attracting visitors from all over the continent.
The SOHO offers tasteful interior design combined with architecture at its purest. The hotel’s name is derived from its two defining characteristics: SOFT and HOT. Visitors will see these characteristics constantly reflected in the hotel’s design, style and originality, which is a perfect fusion of retro and modern elements. Another distinctive feature is the work of well-known visual artist, Fran Aleuset, in the form of a set of methacrylate panels which represent different parts of the human body and create an aesthetic that is sure to impress.
To enjoy a passionate stay, the hotel proposes, for all kinds of couples, a special pack called Soft&Hot. The pack includes a stay in a room with sensual lighting, breakfast for two, a bottle of cava and a sensual kit including a feather duster, mask, massage gel and lubricant gel. SOHO Barcelona is located in one of the city’s most emblematic neighborhoods, the Eixample, just 10 minutes from the famous Ramblas and Plaza Catalunya. All its rooms – last home automation system integrated – are different from each other, all in a color palette including indigo, green, orange or maroon. In its inner part an interior courtyard and a gardened zone is hidden, as well as the terrace located on the rooftop where we can find the swimming pool and the solarium zone. A place where the visitor is able to enjoy the privileged view on the Barcelona’s Gran Via street.
