“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

Can't recommend this place enough. One of the best - probably THE best - hotelexperiences I have ever had. Everything was just perfect. Our room was so ridiculously beautiful with large windows and views on the square but perfectly soundproof. The bed... I miss it already. A la carte breakfast, also to be ordered in the room at no extra costs. Free minibar. Twice daily luxury sweets. The Milton Brown amenities. We felt so spoiled.... Have I told about the beautiful designinteriour throughout (the stairs are a must see, triple wow). Perfect hospitality you won't find in a big 5 star hotel. The only reason why I would not recommend is because I am afraid this place will be fully booked the next time we visit Barcelona.

We loved it. Great welcome. Lovely area. Terrific breakfast. Great bed. Superb food. Sauna and steam a treat in privacy after exploring thie old city and its museums on foot.
Just DO it. Go.its great value for money and you won't be disappointed. A great hotel is all about the little touches and gracious service. This one has it all.

We just checked out today after staying 2 nights, and my husband & I (both very seasoned 5 stars hotel travelers) are very happy with our stay. Here's why:

1) SUPER ala carte buffet breakfast spread! And the option of serving in our room is a star touch.
2) Excellent location. Walk to most sights
3) very comfortable rooms, extremely clean and well kept (kudos to the housekeepers)
4) very good sound proof balcony doors allow peaceful sleep
5) Molton Brown amenities. Wow!
6) free wifi
7) very helpful staffs

Our only complain is the wifi requires frequent logging in.

And our only regret is not having dinner in the hotel restaurant. If the breakfast standard is anything to go by, dinner will be an event.

Definitely will stay here again.

After a magical week in the Catalunya countryside we returned reluctantly for a final two days in the city. The hotel greeted us with a welcome glass of Cava while they took our passports and checked us in. Particular thanks to the very welcoming young woman who checked us in--and my apologies because I did not write down her name.
Our rooms were small but very attractive and beautifully equipped, with thick robes, loads of thick towels, great amenities. A free-of-charge minibar held bottled water, juice, vichy water and chocolate drinks. When I refused my afternoon delivery of a fruit bowl I was brought a small plate of sweets instead. Breakfast menu had a great deal of variety and food quality was good. The Placa Reial is pretty. I read many warnings about pickpockets but we neither saw nor experienced this. Restaurants abound nearby, and the old city is right outside the Placa.

We had a 4 30AM taxi to the airport, and the hotel delivered coffee and rolls to our rooms at 4AM.
Lovely service, great value. I would go again in a heartbeat.

This is was my second stay after hotel opening in early 2012 and I must say that service, food and room facilities are on a top level.
I loved:
- La Cuina del DO - the elegant gourmet restaurant with its inventive cooking and Thomas efficient staff
- the wonderful location in historical building on Placa Reial
- the stylish decoration all over the place with high quality furniture and well designed guest rooms.
- Paloma at thr reception, always helpful and professional
- the a la carte breakfast with many local specials
- very confortable bedding
- the large choice of Molton Brown toiletries in bathroom

Room Tip: room 34, great view on the square, lots of closet space and large bathroom with shower stall and tub...

The Hotel Do was a brilliant base for my trip to Barcelona.

I stayed in a deluxe room, with an amazing view of Placa Reial from both the bedroom and bathroom. The energy and interest of this view is just amazing, and I had absolutely no issue with noise from square (even though I didn't let the staff shutter the balconies at night). Its perfect.

I stayed for four nights, and I really don't have a single complaint.

The rooms are elegant and fresh, with top quality bed linen- extremely comfortable.

The bathroom used excellent bath products, with a separate toilet room, and an extremely deep bath.

The breakfast here is extraordinary. They bring you whatever you want- I ordered mushrooms off the menu, in addition to the extremely extensive Continental and Hot spread they brought to my room just for me. It is very special sitting out looking at Plaza Reial eating a late breakfast. I left the hotel for an early flight, and they arranged a full cooked breakfast for 5am, fully inclusive in the room rate.

This hotel feels like the height of luxury. At roughly 375 Australian dollars a night, it was superb value.

Room Tip: Try and ensure you have a Placa Reial view- its beautiful
