The most amazing hotel ever - small, designed but still warm amd lovely. Best location in Barcelona. The only minus is the WIFI that needs to be reconnected all the time. Besides that - superb. The breakfast is A LA CARTE and is also at the same spirit of the hotel - excellent.

This has to be one of the best hotels in Spain. From beginning to end, we could not fault the service, the quality, the atmosphere, the style, the food and the staff. A perfect 5 star boutique hotel with that extra touch that made our holiday become something very special.

Our room looked out over the square and provided an endless delight to watch the square come to life every morning and buzz with people until late at night. Then all we had to do was close the superbly fitting doors of our balcony to have complete peace and quiet for sleeping in the luxurious bed.

The food was fabulous: casual, well priced tapas style meals on the square with wine recommendations from the friendly Javier - thank you! A stunning degustation meal in the downstairs restaurant (the service was like watching a perfectly choreographed ballet) and the lovely breakfasts each morning.

If you are thinking of anywhere in Barcelona, we are absolutely convinced that you will not do better. This place will be No. 1 very very soon and most certainly deserves to be. Thank you to all the staff and the owners for creating this very special place and your attention to getting it all so right.

Room Tip: We loved our Room 24.

A wonderful experience, from A to Z! The DO Hotel is perfectly located on the very Placa Reial and even though I expected some noise in our 3rd floor room as the square below stays very lively late into the night, once closed, the window kept all the buzz away. The room itself was heavenly! Very elegant, very comfortable, simply faultless down to the minutest details. I've been at posh hotels with sloppy service, and also at places where the personnel is very courteous to compensate for the modest surroundings. At the DO, however, everything is impeccable! From the embroidered monograms on the fine linen to the cheerful, helpful and well-mannered staff, everything spells class. Our special thanks to Galin for being so kind and attentive!
We enjoyed ourselves so much that we already look forward to a spring weekend at the beautiful DO

This is a 5 star hotel by any measure; comfort, location, and particularly the staff. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels over the years and the staff here is unsurpassed. They are competent, friendly , and caring. They go out of their way to help. We stayed four nights and it was a superb experience.

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.
