Travelers' Choice
Just steps from La Rambla, on the eastern edge of the iconic Plaça Reial, DO overlooks the fountain, palm trees, and Gaudí-designed streetlamps of the beautiful square below. The property, constructed in 1856, has been lovingly restored, maintaining the shuttered windows, juliet balconies, and neo-classical columns and archways of its facade. Begin your enchanting experience with an aperitivo on the terrassa, watching the crowd of the bustling square pass by. Luxuriate in an afternoon dip in the rooftop pool and let off some steam at the on-site sauna. Spoiled for choice, enjoy dinner at the restaurant downstairs or round out the evening with a cocktail on the roof overlooking the gorgeous Gothic Quarter.

Sonder DO Placa Reial has a great authentic atmosphere, beautiful rooms and a very serviceminded staff. It is located in the very center of Barcelona meaning that we walked to the sights and when sights were too far away (Tibidabo) public transport is only two minutes away. Many great restaurants nearby. Great experience. Thank you.

Where to begin? The hotel location was right on Las Ramblas, walking distance to the beach and smack ON the plaza which in the evening is a hub of music, people, and fantastic dining options Most amazing was the personal attention from the front desk/concierge team of Silvia and Laura. Their attention to detail and help with everything (suggested shopping, dining, shows, directions, etc.) made all the difference in our stay. The hotel photos are true to life and totally accurate. It's as good in real life as the photos appear. The only difference was that the basement dining room was closed at the time of our visit. So, if coming to Barcelona, don't waste time looking for a better priced hotel; this place was a total deal for anyone looking for VALUE for your money; impeccably clean, good sheets, bathrobes, great location, spacious rooms, refrigerator stocked with complementary water bottles and safe in our room, and a beautiful rooftop. Breakfast was also delicious, although a little on the pricey side. Regardless, we will definitely be back!

Absolutely fantastic hotel! The staff is incredible, the location is awesome, and the rooms are luxurious! If I could come up with more glowing superlatives I'd add them! Our flight arrived at 6:40 AM from the US so we were at the hotel by about 7:30 in the morning. Check in time isn't until 3 PM which we knew and were prepared to leave our bags and walk around for hours. Luckily they had a room available and allowed us to go ahead and check in. Made for a wonderful nap before exploring the city in the afternoon! The rooms aren't particularly large, but everything is so luxurious that the extra space isn't needed. Plenty of storage both in the room and bathroom. The bed and bedding is amazing - you can even choose from a "pillow menu" if you don't like the feather pillows that are on the bed. I'd kill to have that bathroom and shower at home - and the upscale toiletries, robe, slippers, and towel warmer just topped off the deal! Every evening there is a nice treat in the room, fruit and/or pastries, and of course the turn down chocolate. The location right on the plaza was perfect. Loved looking out our little balcony to the activity below. But have no fear, the windows are very soundproof and (except for the English football fans that chanted late into the night one night) you don't hear the sounds from outside. And it's very central - an easy walk to the harbor/beach or further into town the other direction. Or just cruise up and down Las Ramblas right outside. Also close to a metro stop so you can get anywhere else you might want to go. Oh, and the rooftop deck! It was a bit chilly when we were there but we spent time up there anyway. I imagine in the warmer months it's the place to be! I really can't say enough wonderful things about the Hotel Do - our entire 6 night stay was perfect from start to finish. No question about ever staying anywhere else if/when we return to Barcelona.

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel DO after a Mediterranean cruise so that we could explore Barcelona. The service, accommodations, and food are world class. Oscar the hotel manager, and David, the restaurant Manager, were both outstanding making sure that our stay was perfect. The location is perfect in the heart of the Bari Gothic within walking distance of everything. We will absolutely stay there anytime we return to Barcelona.

I travel at least 70 nights a year for business. This time Barcelona was a lay over to my final business destination in Malaga, and decided to stay in a boutique hotel. What a fantastic experience! The personalized experience at the Hotel DO, was above any expectation. This hotel by far exceeded my expectations. The personnel at the hotel were super helpful, and tried to make your stay even more special. I will definitely stay here again during my next visit in Barcelona! Fully Recommend.
