Everything is high class and solid, typically Catalan and Spanish, at Hotel DO Reial; a family owned, 18 room hotel perfectly located in Barcelona: I saw all room cathegories and must say that no 24, our room, is my favourite: hiiiigh ceilings with visible beams, ancient ironworks protecting the balcony with full views over Placa Reial, egg shell white and dark brown colours, perfect lighting, white marble and dark oak in the bathroom…pure joy.
Food is simply fantastic, with all imaginable local dishes and tapas. The outside terrace gives great views over the vivid square. Staff is genuinly kind and helpful. And I have saved what may be best of all at Hotel DO Reial: the roof top terrace with a small swimming pool and a bar that offers views of the city: Gaudi, the gothic cathedral and again the high palm trees at Placa Reial.
Just one small warning when you leave the hotel: be aware of pick pockets when walking around in Barcelona. Leave your wallet in the hotel safe; just bring some Euros and a credit card. #hoteldoreial #doreial #lottiesworld #visitspain
