This is a wonderful, wonderful hotel. The staff, the environment, the location, the lovely room, and the great bathrooms - what a terrific place to stay. We loved this place and will make it our "go to" location in Barcelona. It's our 6th time in Barcelona and this is by far the best hotel we've stayed in. Cannot recommend it... More

Great food ,service & location close to the port, harbour & Plaza de Catalunya. Located in a quaint romantic historic part of town. Feels classy & trendy. The tapas and Sangria here was very reasonable & well presented.

We chose Barcelona and the Hotel DO for our 40th Ruby Wedding Anniversary and what an excellent choice it was. The hotel is brilliantly situated on the Placa Reial and just off the Ramblas - nothing was far away by foot. The hotel staff were just brilliant - so friendly and helpful and went the extra mile to make our... More

A warm welcome in both atmosphere as well as personal greeting, we were instantly at home. Love the location, the décor and the service. A couple of the restaurant recommendations were spot on, while a couple missed the boat entirely. Just like anywhere, choose your dining carefully. The concierge does not always have the best experience upon which to draw.

Loved this hotel. Boutique and lovely. Our suite had full length windows on two sides with juliette balconies which was amazing. Very accomodating, food was very good and the staff were lovely. Modern decor and very comfortable bed and pillows. Overlooked a popular square but closing the windows eliminated the noise. Breakfast on the square or the room terrace was... More

I stayed for 10 nights in this elegant hotel and recommend it highly. The location is superb, the food lives up to the hotel’s gastronomic billing, the rooms are clean and comfortable and both the terrace and roof restaurants afford views of the charming “royal square”. But, what really distinguishes this lovely hotel is the attention paid by members of... More

I give two thumbs up for Hotel Do Placa Reial although I hesitate to write a glowing review because if the hotel becomes too popular, we may not be able to stay there next time. We stayed for 4 nights in this amazing hotel just off the touristy La Rambla. The location is perfect, near the metro stop Liceu, allowing... More

We stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise. I totally agree with all previous reviews, this is a lovely little hotel with extremely good and friendly staff. Our room was not large but very airy and light as we had a balcony overlooking the side street to the square. Bathroom lovely and elegant with Molton Brown soap, shampoo and... More

My wife and I recently spent six nights at the Hotel DO Placa Reial. This hotel is located on the always busy Placa Reial one block off the Rambula and within easy walking distance of many exciting places to visit including the ancient Barric Gothic section of this beautiful city. Our room was spacious and very comfortable with many amenities... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
