Soho House Barcelona I Lol’ed when I saw the choice of Cowshed soaps in the shower. I guess why not right..? Big ones you can’t keep, but everything miniature went straight into the bag.

Soho House Barcelona The rooftop is the spot. Gorgeous Mediterranean oasis with views over the sea and stunning Barcelona rooftops. Fun fact, the stairways have fun paintings by the cool Blanca Miró.

Soho House Barcelona These pictures are highly illegal, so soak them up. Pics on the club floor and in changing rooms (duh) are not allowed. But my complimentary breakfast was highly appreciated and how dreamy is the girls changing room at the gym?

Soho House Barcelona Furniture thought out…Soho House is a mixture of midcentury European pieces, local antiques and custom made design from Soho House team itself. They have an online shop where you can deck out your pad in the same manner. Lush. Cinema is also lush.

Soho House Barcelona With locations in London, Miami, Berlin, Brooklyn, and West Hollywood, Cecconis Barcelona definitely takes the throne design-wise.

Soho House Barcelona It’s the contemporary relaxed luxury that really wins me over at Cecconis, and the Italian of course.

Soho House Barcelona Show me a person who doesn’t like Cecconis and I’ll show you a liar. I am obviously a huge fan. A major plus, it’s open to the public, no need to be a member to enjoy this goodness.

Highs & Lows

  • Where should I start.. The gym is stunning and has fun classes - yoga and spinning, the lush cinema, the two pools, the relaxed work atmosphere during the day, a huge sweets selection, the beautiful views from the roof, great service, the spa, Cecconis, gigs and activities, the food, the cocktails…

  • The rooms are so beautifully designed. And there is an incredible amount of surprises and treats around the room. Hot water bottle, complimentary cookies, a bartender mixing you a cocktail (!!), Marshall speaker, miniature Cowshed everything, complimentary laundry service and etc etc etc.

  • The worst thing is that it’s hard to leave.
