“Excellent Central Barcelona Hotel”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

We had a recent 4 day stay here for a special occasion. The hotel was excellent - room, food and service. Everyone was very friendly. The location was superb with much to do just a stroll from the hotel. For a place so close to the Ramblas it was quiet. We will go back.
Just one point to note - if you stay here get a taxi or an airport bus. We got one of these shared minibuses which dropped us at the same place that the airport bus would have dropped us (Placa de Catalunya). It was raining and we were not sure of our direction - a poor start. Not the hotel's fault but some advice on the website might help. Used the ariport bus to return - no problem.

This was the best stay I have ever had. Everyone was attentive. The staff really understand the meaning of customer service. The concierges (Xavier and Ruth) were available to answer my many questions, book excursions and make reservations. The bell captains were helpful with explaining the hotel, assist with luggage, and walk with me to the nearby Laundromat. The food was outstanding, you don't have to be a "foodie" to appreciate the great food. The attention to detail that this hotel has is exceptional. The location of the hotel is perfect for a thorough exploration of Barcelona. 5 days was not long enough at this hotel or in Barcelona.

Stayed for 5 nights over New Year 2014.Everything from the moment we arrived was perfect. Excellent room; we had a junior suite overlooking the Placa Reial (which can be rather noisy at night but only if you leave the balcony door open!) which was stylishly furnished - as is the rest of the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Bar and the restaurant facing the square are great "people watching" spots. Good food in that restaurant and basement restaurant - although the harsh lighting in the latter meant it lacked atmosphere. The small roof terrace and pool would be very welcome in summer.
If you are visiting Barcelona and appreciate a well-located, stylish botique hotel you won't do better than Hotel DO Reial!

My family (including 3 teenage boys) stayed here for our winter holiday and loved it. First, it is a beautiful hotel with good, clean and comfortbale rooms in an excellent location. Secondly, the staff are excellent; professional, friendly and very helpful. They were helful even before we arrived; they helped me make some decisions about arrangements during the holiday season. The restaraunt we dined in (Cuina) is very good. We enjoyed many hours sitting in their sidewalk cafe on the Placa Reial. The location - near La Ramblas, but hidden in the Placa Reial - is both unique and ideal for those touring the city. If ever in Barcelona again, we will return to this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Placa have a great view, but the Placa can be noisy in the night and early mor...

this was a great boutique hotel.
fabulous staff, friendly and personalised service.

the food was fantastic - the only thing I would say would be to try and be there on a non-Monday as the only restaurant open on a Monday was the terrace tapas bar (which was however, the best tapas we had in Spain)

the staff looked after us with a great welcome, restaurant bookings (it was the Barcelona holiday, so very booked out), and taxi and breakfast for an early flight.

handy location in the middle of town and fascinating watching in the town square.

would definitely stay here again
