We were enjoying our time in Placa Reial (one of my fav spots in Barcelona) and it didn't take me long to decide we were checking out of our average accommodation and into one of those rooms overlooking the square! It turned out to be the best decision of our trip. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating when we fronted up for a room (no booking) showing us a beautiful room overlooking the square. We lunched at the terrace restaurant, sunned ourselves on the rooftop terrace, had a dip in the plunge pool and ordered a bottle of cava room service which we enjoyed while watching the constant entertainment in the square from our little balcony. The bed was a dream, the bathroom divine and we had a fantastic 1 night stay. In the morning our flight was early so we had a room service breakfast (no extra charge) which was amazing and we on our way. If you are coming to this city I can't think of a better place to spend your time. The only complaint would be the service in the terrace restaurant needs to be improved.

We stayed at this beautiful hotel June 15th-17th, 2012. This hotel is gorgeous and the service is outstanding. There is nothing that hasn't been thought of. The rooms are exquisite, gorgeous design, beautiful views and extremely comfortable. They have a private spa that ou can reserve, free of charge. There is a deck on the top floor that is gorgeus with a pool for dipping. The morning we left, since we were leaving quite early, they arranged a private continental breakfast for us in the gorgeous restaurant located on the bottom floor. Everything about this hotel is outstanding! Lucas, one of the managers, went out of his way to ensure that our every need was met, from arranging a private breakfast the morning we left (at 4:30 am), to arranging a private car. We had booked a different hotel initially, and after checking in realized it was horrible, we found this hotel, and Luca arranged for his bell boy to walk down to our hotel (3 blocks away) and transport all of our luggage (7 huge bags) down tot heir hotel. I can not say enough about how amazing an experience it was in our stay at this hotel. I would highly recommend it. It is a boutique hotel with only 18 rooms located right on the Placa Reial, yet the price we found to be incredibly reasonable.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the Placa Reial, all the rooms have terraces, but the ones overlooking the...

Ok! We just stayed here in April as I was in town to see El Clasico. We stumbled upon DO by accident. We were staying in a cute place in Barceloneta and wanted to make our last two nights special: DO fit the bill. The rooms are plush and immaculate. The service almost borders on over attentive...a porter actually escorted us to a box office so we could acquire tickets for a dance event. The restaurant is very good and always open (no siesta which comes in handy) though you are in Barca so don't rely on it. For being in the heart of La Rambla the rooms are nice and quiet. The roof deck is a great place to escape and have an evening drink before going out. We're not the easiest of travellers, yes we adjust and aren't overly demanding like some but we do expectations that exceed those of less frequent travellers. DO met everyone one of them.

Room Tip: I think if you want to have less static from the crowds below, do not opt for a plaza facing room th...
