Maybe because Spain itself is a country of passion, maybe 'cause the management selected well, but I can say the Hotel Do has fairly the best staff we've experienced ever. We arrived early in the morning only for a one-night stay expecting to spend the first day walking around waiting for our room. The taxi dropped us just at the...

First time to Barcelona. The hotel was recommended by a friend who has stayed here several times. We loved our room, the location and the staff. It couldn't have been a nicer stay. Will gladly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying here again. Aloha

The hotel was centrally located, walking distance from many attractions. Our room overlooked the scenic Pl. Reial, and had the benefit of providing a pretty view, but thanks to excellent soundproofing, was not problematic at all. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated, and well appointed, offering both a shower (with an oversized shower head) and a bath tub. The service...

Hotel DO is a wonderful hotel with gracious rooms and excellent staff. Located in the Placa Reial, Hotel DO is just next to La Rambla and a short walk from the water. The hotel was renovated about 5 years ago and they have done a great job. With a terrace on the Placa Reial, this is a great place to...

This property is great, its small, centrally located with lovely service. The views from the roof are gorgeous and there's a small pool for very hot days. I stayed for a night whilst on a business trip. I booked a single room, which despite being windowless (I intended to spend all waking hours outside of the room) was really quite...

Wow is the first thing that springs to mind : If only the standards in all hotels were as good as this. Yes, the hotel is pricey, but you get what you pay for. Upon arrival, a complimentary drink accompanies check in and then, when you are ready, staff are on hand to take you to your rooms. The staff...

I stayed at Hotel DO for 4 nights in the middle of a two-week business trip and my stay was the highlight not only of this trip but also of all my travel over the last few years. This gem is located on the Placa Reial, right off of the busy La Rambla. Rather than feel like a part of...

This small boutique hotel was fabulous from start to finish. The location is prime, the service was impeccable, the food was so fresh, great quality and delicious and the wine selection perfect! We thought the roof top terrace was relaxing (even though restaurant only open in summer) we couple still relax in peace with a glass of wine in evenings,...

Three couples were blown away by this hotel! We stayed with them four nights and could have made it a month!!! It is a super place to stay...perfect location. The staff is incredible and the rooms wonderful. It is only about five years old so every thing is relatively new. When we arrived we were offered welcome drinks and to...

“Ask for a room which does not face the Placa as it is quite the lively scene and very noisy at night.”
