We had a wonderful stay here this month. We stayed for 4 days and could easily have spent two weeks with Hotel Do Placa Reial as our base as it is a good central location to walk to many attractions and has easy access to buses, taxi's and metro.
The staff were warm and friendly and put us at our ease from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble. On one occasion I couldn't get the safe open. I phoned reception from my room and within 10 minutes it was repaired.
We had a lovely spacious room with balcony looking out onto the square with a lovely en suite bathroom, separate shower, large bath and toilet. Our room had a huge bed and I had the best nights sleep I have had in months. There was also a free non-alcoholic mini bar in the room. Extra touches such as a couple of tangerines or strawberries dipped in chocolate and a weather forecast for the following day were left in our room which made us feel spoilt.
We had no idea what to expect from the restaurant and chose the tasting menu. It was the best meal we had during our stay. Each course was a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds and we were very happy to shake the chef's hand and thank him in person after our meal.
We enjoyed a visit to a jam session at Jamboree Jazz Club just a few steps from the hotel and next to that is a venue for Flamenco dancing.
Thank you Hotel Do Placa Reial, we had a wonderful stay.
