“Boutique Luxury in the heart of the Placa Reial”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

A super, truly 5-star experience in the heart of the city. My sister and I just returned from 4 days there, and had a marvellous time. The room and the hotel itself were beautiful, and the warm welcome and service from all the staff (without exception), makes this a place unlike most other hotels. I travel a lot for business, and this is honestly one of the best hotel exeperiences I have ever had.

This is truly the MOST superb hotel! In an unbeatable location, with outstanding restaurants and service- the rooms are to die for.... If u want to feel like a celebrity- stay here!!! I couldn't recommend it more strongly. I have never seen a hotel that actually beats the photos on the Internet- this does! After being constantly disappointed by European hotels, this one actually lives up to its photos, website and prices!! Unbeatable.

The DO Placa Reial is a delightful small hotel, in a very central location in the old city, just off the famous Ramblas. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful, standards of comfort and service are very high, and the food is superb. Strongly recommended.

An outstanding hotel with a good location, excellent service, fabulous design and the most amazing breakfasts imaginable. This hotel focuses on attention to detail with thoughtful touches such as fruit and chocolates provided in the room, along with a free mini bar providing a good selection of soft drinks (restocked more than once a day). A surprisingly peaceful and relaxing hotel considering it's location on the Placa Reial which is action packed both day and night! Highly recommended.

Did not stop at the hotel, although it looks fab and great location, but the tasting menu here for Euro50 is superb. Chefs starter before another 5 courses was a procession of I think 9 dishes one after the other. Drinks to match comprising copious glasses of cava, four other wines and a local wheat beer was excellent choice at Euro 25. I have eaten at several Michelin star places, upto 3 stars, and this is deserving of one. Excellent value for a high standard of cooking, at half the price of established rivals in the city.

Thanks to Tripadviser we come across this luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Barcelona on lovely Placa Real. It was just opened six month ego with good size modern arty rooms, great bathroom, 3 restaurants where food been excellent specially included in price breakfast. With all fresh local produce they even included wine for breakfast.
Food price in their restaurants was reasonable with great inexpensive wine selection. Hotel & restaurants staff very attentive & helpful with all ur needs including organizing sightseeing. Staying just on the corner of La Rumbla street u have almost everything on ur doorstep & without walking distance to many attractions plus good shops.
In Barcelona they have 2 company running double decker tourist buses not expensive and 2 day tickets are really great value.
Only one negative for us been fact that our hotel been located on busy and very popular with young people square so all night long there have been action going on, and some rooms been exposed to noise more then others. And if u have top floor room expect some noise from roof restaurant at night ( from where is excellent view on Barcelona)If we are back there we definitely will stay in this hotel, specially being there we checked other recommended to us hotels and won't think of changing.

Room Tip: 3th floor with view on Placa

This hotel is amazing in every way, excellent service, the superior double room is very beautifull, the attention for detail in the rooms, the service, and the restaurant is just amazing. The room is very quiet, has a very comfortable bed and together with the pillow menu it feels like comming home. This hotel is service to the customer all the way and with a smile.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but go for a suite or superior room you won't regret.
