Hotel DO: Plaça Reial is a gorgeous boutique hotel that sits right in the middle of Las Ramblas on Plaça Reial (if you want a quiet hotel, this is not it). With 18 luxury rooms, two incredible restaurants, and a decor that included hard wood floors, lush dark leather sofas, mirrored ceilings, and blush colored florals, the hotel was romantic,...

This is a very nice hotel, the location is OK. If you are looking for a quiet place to stay this is not the place. The noise from the plaza goes until 5 to 6 a.m. The rooms are very nice, but small, the staff is very helpful.

Superb service and ambiance. Small hotel located between Plaza Reial and La Rambla. Super clean rooms of typical European proportions (read 'small') with high ceilings (about 13 feet on first floor), and very modern fixtures. Shower is heavenly. Hotel includes breakfast which is possibly the best hotel breakfast we had, including crispy croissants and jamon iberico. Breakfast is in what...

My only recommendation is sincere and I hope the hotel would consider please putting in 2 sun parasols at the pool for shade (just 1 at each pair of chairs). This hotel is lovely. I wanted to be comfortable after such a long fight and so it was a great choice. Looking back, I probably "shouldn't" have spent so much...

A very comfortable boutique hotel in a fantastic location. With large well appointed rooms, a relaxing but fashionable ambience and great service. Not cheap but worth the tariff. The hotel faces one of the prettiest squares in Barcelona, in the gothic quarter and a stones throw (more of a toss really) from Las Rambla. In true European style it has...

This hotel is a gem. Right off Las Ramblas, overlooking a beautiful plaza, the location can't be beat. The plaza has a water fountain, tens of restaurants, constant entertainment from street performers and outdoor fairs. Despite all of the activity, we slept well each night. The hotel itself is an oasis. The staff greets you by name as you enter....

About as central a location as possible with the inevitable price tag and, certainly true of the first floor, a lot of street noise! The staff are friendly, professional and welcoming and the hotel tries very hard with a range of little extras. A pleasant but not large room with limited storage. Nice bathroom. Would like a bit more soundproofing,...
