2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Let the adventures begin at DO Plaça Reial — steps from La Rambla on its namesake square. The rooftop terrace overlooks palm trees and iconic street lamps designed by Antonio Gaudí. Bar Tomate BCN serves delicious tapas and paella dishes downstairs on the patio. And breakfast is available every morning. The rooftop pool is a perfect spot to cool off on hot days. Or you can unwind with a session in the sauna. This is a central location and prone to noise. This property belongs to a collection of boutique hotels powered by Sonder. No two properties are alike, but all offer our mobile-first guest experience. Use the Sonder app to navigate your stay from start to finish. Check in. Request amenities. Connect to WiFi. Contact customer support. All via our small (but mighty) app. Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered. This Sonder has a front desk which is staffed 24/7. Our on-site team is available to ensure you have a better stay.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

While the location is ‘central’ in the city, there were homeless people sleeping outside the front door, no hotel lobby, lights off, and the sign for the hotel looked temporary and dirty. I tried to cancel my reservation after they asked for every personal detail including passport number and picture but they wouldn’t refund me. I stayed somewhere else in the city and so glad I did. I went to check out this hotel while there and it did not feel safe.

The hotel has a great location, it is in a square that despite a little noise with beggars partying all night long, noise of bottles breaking, and urinating through the walls, it has a charm, a accordion playing music at dusk, restaurants. The rooms are very clean, and with a construction care. The Wi-Fi works 60% of the time, the room keys often stop working. The service has average quality, and unprofessional, which in some moments cause a lot of sadness. The expectation was for a memorable experience, but no, it’s common. If I had a 4-star rating, it would be more honest.

It is puzzling how DO Sonder can be classified as a five-star hotel. Three or four stars would be more appropriate. Advantages: The location in the city center is good (although the hustle and bustle and music at Placa Reial can be disturbing), the hotel has an old-fashioned charm with nice albeit slightly worn suites. Disadvantages: The breakfast is hardly five-star. Guests are forced to choose from four small fixed menus, which means you can forget about loading up for the day. Freedom of choice should be a given at a five-star hotel. Some of the staff should take a course in service. The hotel’s Wi-Fi is a joke.

Great little hotel. Rooms were excellent. A funky vibe, with sprial staircase funky old lift, great art in the rooms, 4 post bed, great facilities, double sink bathroom and fantastic shower. Even supplied an umbrella just in case. I had a seafood paella from the hotel restaurant on my first night which was great. Brilliant location, right on the square with lots of bars and restaurants, and on the other side, La Rambla with walking distance access to everything. Great staff too. Thank you 😊

Beautiful small hotel right in the square! The location can’t be beat and easy walk to everything including the main bus station about a 10 minute walk. Breakfast is included and is great. It is downstairs but the main restaurant is upstairs and that one costs money. There is a rooftop and a small pool. Service for bar is hit or miss you might have to go downstairs to the main bar to order. Or just bring your own bottle and ask for glasses at the bar downstairs. The room. Nice. Big. The issues…it’s very dark, lights not working. Plugs are hit and miss. Check your phone as it is charging woke up in the morning and phone was dead. Stayed in room 15 on the first floor it faces the side and not the main courtyard which for us is great it’s not as noisy as it turns into a party at night.

Room Tip: Room 15 is on the side of court yard so less noisy. Bring your own bottle of wine to the rooftop...

Thank you for sharing your experience at the beautiful DO Placa Reial! It's great to hear that the location and breakfast stood out positively. However, your feedback about the lighting, plug issues, and the hit-or-miss service is duly noted. Note that some of the switches in the room turn off the plugs and that could be the reason for not charging during night time. Your input is valuable for the hotel's improvement. If you have any more insights or suggestions, feel free to share. We hope that despite the minor inconveniences, you had an overall enjoyable stay and that we may have the pleasure of welcoming you again in the future!

Stayed in room 21. This beautiful top-floor room was clearly recently renovated so there were quirky lighting issues that were promptly addressed. Super central gothic quarter location so a bit noisy on weekends. Great breakfasts. Employees were friendly and efficient. I would stay there again.
