Reviewed 7 January 2014

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

My third stay at Hotel DO - the staff have welcomed me back as if I am family. I love the decor, copious breakfast, great food, location and excellent staff. I highly recommend people to this small family owned hotel.

We spent three nights here in early November and it couldn't have been better. The staff was amazing and there to help whenever we needed. This hotel was centrally located and we could walk everywhere. The attention to detail was amazing, from personalized business cards waiting for me in the room to the afternoon fruit and evening chocolates waiting for us everyday. When we return to Barcelona there is no question we'll be staying here again.

This hotel does not deserve to be 5 stars hotel and it is overvalued in term of price, we have window with city view in the shower! And there are only four or five staff.

Poor internet connection, lack of staff, no trolly for laugguges, bad entrance, one elevator only, very small hotel, the breakfast is menu type so we have to call the only one waiter each time we need peace of bread, our room with a pool but it was very cold one even tough we are in winter season.
