Let the adventures begin at DO Plaça Reial — steps from La Rambla on its namesake square. This restored 19th-century façade features shuttered windows, Juliet balconies, and neoclassical archways. And 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 complimentary breakfast is available every morning. Plus, the rooftop pool is a perfect spot to cool off on hot days. Or you can unwind with a session in the sauna. Each space features cable television and a minimalist design with warm wooden furnishings. Outside, the Gothic Quarter has endless cafés, bars, boutiques, and historic landmarks to discover. From impressive basilicas to stunning theatres, like Gran Teatre del Liceu. See the best of Barcelona at DO Plaça Reial.

Hotel's Favourite
We recently visited Spain and our highlight was time spent in Barcelona. The location of Sonder DO Placa Reial is nothing short of AMAZING. Situated just off the Ramblas, overlooking a beautiful square buzzing with activity and nightlife, and a short stroll into the heart of the Gothic area. Amidst the nightlife and excitement that is Barcelona, the rooms at the hotel still manage to be quiet and are stylishly decorated. The staff were helpful - especially Augusto who went out of his way to make our stay unforgettable.

We were booked on a cruise beginning in Barcelona and wanted to spend a few extra days to tour this fascinating city. We discovered an absolute gem of a hotel called Sonder Placa Reial, just a minute from Rambla de Mar, the famous walking street and bordering on Placa Reial, a beautiful square with a fountain and a number of indoor-outdoor restaurants; all part of the Gothic Quarter. The location is ideal for seeing the sights but also just a 10 minute walk to the very lovely harbour, recently developed. The hotel is also recently renovated with very comfortable new rooms in a classic style and modern bathrooms with everything that you could desire. They served a very good breakfast and we found Pablo, the manager and desk clerk to be courteous, so helpful and kind and efficient. We would certainly return to this hotel and recommend it highly.

Hotel Review We stayed in the king suite with private terrace and pool for our honeymoon in November. As far as we can tell this is their nicest room. TLDR: The location is great and the staff was helpful. The hotel was clean and comfortable. BUT, this is not a 5* hotel. It is at best, a good 3* hotel. This gives a review of 4 green orbs. Things which were 5* - The private terrace was amazing. - Customer service was amazing. - The fit and finish in the room, particularly the bathroom was great. - The location is 10/10. Amazing. Things where were 3* - Premium suite next to late night bar. Seems like an oversight and diminished the experience. - I could see through the towels. - The plumbing seems a bit wonky. Really loud gurgling and sometimes smelly. - The electrical in the room is complicated. Easy to accidentally turn off all the outlets. We are fairly sure the electrical turned off on its own overnight cause the AC to also turn off. And our electronics weren’t charged. - The air conditioner seems incapable of maintaining one temperature. Seems there is an unlabeled switch that turns off the AC. Often hot overnight regardless of thermostat temperature. - The included breakfast has only three options. While these are good, I’d expect either a broader selection or a variation from a 5* hotel. - Room service was so hard to figure out that we have up. This is a great hotel in a great location but it doesn’t come close to other 5* hotels. If you get a good deal, stay here. But don’t pay top dollar.

Absolutely loved this hotel. Interior was clean and wonderfully designed. The location is also great as you're right off La Rambla and Placa Reial so plenty of famous spots to see within walking distance. Our room was very comfortable and spacious and also included a balcony.

Great place everything we needed, beautiful neighborhood. Great comfy bed. Roomy common space. There was a gym, large rec room, and an outside deck that we were able to use on a beautifully warm November Saturday in the city. Will definitely stay here again!

Not only because the location is the best. The service is personalized and warm. The whole reception team welcomed us very well and explained many things about the city and the building. Thank you very much Jordi, Marina, Geo and David! About the room, it is perfectly designed. Very comfortable and extremely clean, it is a pleasure to sleep in that bed! The bathroom is spacious and away from the bed. The arrangement of the furniture and the use of space is very well thought out. The hotel is boutique, cozy and functional. It has a small rooftop pool and a bar that is open from 17:00hs to 00:00hs. On the second floor there is a sauna, which is appreciated in these cold days in Barcelona. You can tell it is a classic hotel but adapted to modern times. You can communicate with the front desk through the Sonder app and by whatsapp! The breakfast is amazing. This service is not part of Sonder but honestly the quality is very good and guess what... it's included! Being such a centrally located hotel and being located nothing more and nothing less than in the Plaça Reial of the city, it is true that some nights it is a bit noisy. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place, don't go downtown! Nothing more to say. Thank you Sonder! We will definitely come back.
