“Barcelona "Second To None"”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Barcelona ”Second To None”
If you are curios on and if you want to make your visit to Barcelona to a very special event, you should continue to read this…
We will try to explain by words something that you need to have experience from; how to explain the taste of the “king of fruits” to someone that has not even seen a Mango…
Hotel DO Reial is a 5 star hotel but could easily have 2 more stars… It is almost impossible to measure the employees’ passion for their work or their longing to give you as a guest something extra. For us this was an extraordinary experience, the only words that we can express for the staff are “second to none”!
Location is one of our most important criteria. We want the Hotel to be in the center and also close to the sea… If you would like to have walking distance to the the Ramblas, the Liceo, the Boquería market, the Palacio de la Música concert hall, the Cathedral, the Palau Güell, Santa María del Mar, the Picasso Museum the Port of Barcelona, it is all there and Hotel DO Reial was spot on!
The next thing is the atmosphere or the feeling you get when you are visiting the room. Every little detail is thoughtfully chosen; Hotel DO Reial is actually given the concept Gastronomic Boutique Hotel a far better meaning than we have expected. With the gourmet restaurant with their exceptionally creative and tasteful food they really delivered and fulfilled our expectations “second to none”.
This hotel gave our 15-year celebration trip, duration was 7 days, a feeling that will be with us forever…we just want to say, Thank You!

PS. In the restaurant they could even serve my favorite grappa, Berta, which you not even always find in Italy…

Room Tip: Vi valde rumet mot det mycket fina torget Placa Reial, underbart och utan insyn...

We had an excellent stay at the hotel do, the staff is extremely helpful and so friendly, you really feel at home, the only problem is the that we didn´t want to leave again. I have to mention the fantastic restaurant La Cuina Del DO, if you stay here you have to have dinner there, everything was perfect, the food very delicious, and the staff again was so friendly and attentive. We will definitely stay there again.

Always eager to try new hot spots, I stayed in this brand new small 5* design hotel on Placa Reial in Barrio Gotico. Very well designed large room, great bathrooms with deluxe Molton Brown toiletries. Beautiful roof top terrace with small pool and great view over the roofs of the old city centre and cathedral. Close to habour, ramblas, and shopping on Paseo de Gracia.
Incredible breakfast selection. I liked the dinner in the gourmet restaurant, Thomas is a perfect Maitre D
