Hotel DO Plaça Reial

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed for 5 nights while in Barcelona for a conference and I am very glad I chose this hotel. The room was beautiful with a high ceiling and a view over the Placa Reial. The bathroom was lovely with nice bath products. The breakfast was fantastic each day and there is no extra charge if you have it in your room. The best aspect of the hotel, however, is the staff. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. A special thank you to Luiz who arranged a taxi to get me to a meeting and then to wait for me to take me to the next meeting. As most of the taxi drivers do not speak English he made sure that the driver understood what was required. The one potential downside to the hotel would be for people who are sensitive to noise. I arrived on a Saturday night and I can confirm that they do indeed party all night long in Barcelona. I could hear noise from the Placa below all night and the last of the revellers didn't leave until the stall holders came to set up their stalls at about 7am the next morning. Having said that, I would still return and stay again. It is a fabulous hotel.

My wife and I Stayed at the Do for one night towards the end of May. We would happily have stayed longer had this been possible. The reception staff were very helpful, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever slept in and the bathroom was excellent. We had a very good breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Square. The location is central. We have no hesitation in recommending Hotel Do to anyone looking for a boutique hotel in Barcelona

What a gem of a hotel, close to everything, stayed here for 4 nights. Extremely friendly and helpful staff especially Adrianna at breakfast. Spacious room with complimentary cold drinks and fruit every day plus a surprise treat each evening, such a lovely comfortable place to stay, can be a tad noisy at night due to being So close to placa reial placa and La Rambla but not too bad and is all part of being close to the action. Lovely roof top pool and bar to cool off after sightseeing

We stayed here for 5 nights. First time to Barcelona, and we found the hotel and service were great. Very comfortable and modern rooms, and the breakfast was amazing. Noise was fine if you shut the doors, not a problem. Would definitely stay again!

Our first visit to Barcelona. We stayed over 3 nights following a cruise. I wanted a hotel that was close to the port, close to the historic area, and safe. Hotel Do was a perfect choice. We walked from the cruise terminal, maybe 15 minutes with big roller suitcases. An easy shaded walk. The location was excellent and easy to find. Literally steps off of La Ramblas and facing a big square (Placa Reial). The square was surrounded with higher end, tourist focused cafes. Crossing the square led to the Latin Quarter, returning to La Ramblas provided easy taxi access and plenty of activity. Less touristy local restaurants were a short walk away. The Hotel itself was excellent. Small building, big room, elevator, fantastic breakfast, clean, modern with good wifi. We received complementary tapas, drinks, and a bottle of wine. The staff was exceptional. They welcomed us with big smiles every time we returned after a day of sightseeing and answered every silly tourist question I could dream up. While we enjoyed the sights of Barcelona, Sagrada Familia( a must), Park Guell, Picasso Museum, Montjuic, The Beach, the city remains just that... a big city with the crowds, the hustlers and scams ever present. When in the city, I always felt defensive and on guard based on stories and actual attempts to get our money. I can't thank the staff of Hotel Do enough for providing us a wonderful sanctuary in the midst of the chaos. If you can afford this hotel, don't hesitate, you will not regret it.

We are lucky enough to have room 47 again. I loved this place so much in 2015, I booked this room as soon as I could. Large bedroom, great bed and linens and wonderful toiletries. It is the staff who make it-helpful and they each go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I suppose the adjoining Placa could annoy some but we don't hear it. Our room has a private pool and deck. Breakfast is terrific as is the location. If I can travel in the future I'll be back. Nothing bad to say. Housekeeping is excellent on the whole. Highly recommended.

We spent the last 3 days of our vacation in Barcelona. We had never been there before and Hotel Do got good reviews so decided to stay there. It is located on the Placa Reial which is a very busy tourist spot off the La Rambla. The staff at the hotel were very accommodating and the mini frig was stocked full of free refreshments. The room was very large and clean. It over looked the plaza. Every once in a while you can hear the noise from the plaza but it's not bad. The hotel even put together a to go basket with coffee and a small breakfast when we had to leave early for the airport. The only negative thing was when you sit outside at the restaurant on the plaza , the homeless people are constantly coming up to your table begging for money.

My partner and I stayed here. The staff made us feel welcomed and appreciated. The room was swell with a mini fridge, excellent bathroom with molten brown products, yummy breakfasts included, great location, nice roof top area. There are stores, shops, and all kinds of restaurants close by. The only things I didn't like as much was the bed--it was two singles pushed together. That said I slept fine. The roof top pool is really just for your feet and hanging out. I would stay here again if I ever go back to Barcelona.

We were a week in Barcelona and decided to spend some extra luxury on ourselves the last day-we checked in at hotel DO. It was fantastic! Best breakfast in my life. Nicest hotel room in my life. Don't order drinks to the very nice roof top pool- they are also nice but too expensive . If you want a high quality hotel experience - go here...its just soo nice!

We absolutely loved the Hotel DO. From the moment we arrived until our 4 am checkout we were blown away by this small but wondeful hotel. The Hotel Do is an oasis in a beautiful but busy city.We had a lovely arrival cocktail on the house while taking in the sights of the square. We loved to walk through the door and each time get greeted by name. This gem is right on the Placa Reial off of the busy La Rambla. If you have enough of the square, go up to your room for a bit, swing open the french doors and stand on your balcony and observe from afar. Nothing like it! We were even serenaded by a violinist from the balcony! Each member of the staff we encountered went out of their way for us. They all seem to love their job. We felt so comfortable and at home. We ran into two of the staff members in a nearby shopping square and we were greeted by name and had a nice chat, like meeting a friend on the corner! We appreciated all of the small touches. Complimentary breakfast started with a plate of croissants, and fresh baked goods along with coffee and delicious fresh squeezed OJ. Then you get to order anything off the menu. Everything is cooked to order. Our room faced the Place Reial which is very lively late into the night. However once we closed the windows and shutters we heard hardly a thing. Double glazed windows eliminate all noise. The room was beautiful. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the sheets excellent. The bathroom was wonderful and the shower large with good water pressure. Fresh fruit was left each day. Also upon returning each night, little chocolates or treat were waiting. They were s appreciated. In addition the mini bar of juices, water and soda is complimentary. Also greatly appreciated. Small details which make your stay memorable and special. The rooftop pool is wonderful after a long day. It is tiny, but so welcoming and refreshing. We usually were the only ones on the rooftop. They do have dinner and bar service there in the evening. Also, the spa was another tiny but perfect gem. We used the sauna and shower before heading out for an evening of exploring Barca! There were refreshments, robes and a stockpile of towels. It seems as though they only let one party use it at a time as the lobby keeps the key. So private and relaxing! We had an early-4am taxi pick up to the airport. We were greeted with a to go bag of fruit, pastries, water and juice. The had also made us hot toasted ham and cheese sandwiches to go. How much more personal can that get? I hope to return to the Hotel Do!
