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.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great hotel in the center of Barcelona. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful with any and all requests (Resturant recommendations, more water for the room, etc.) Our trip was for our wedding anniversary and we were surprised with a beautiful gift from the hotel, wine and a lovely note. I highly recommend Sonders to all my friends and family.

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.

1. They would say not to worry about trash during checkout later will send you photo and charge $100 for cleaning 2. Each even floor has laundry room and at least 1 out of 3 was always out of service. Small washer, you cannot give enough cloths altogether, because not enough water is coming. So you would have to give cloths in multiple floors to get it done. Cheapest and worst washer I have ever seen. 3. Internet was out of service for many weeks, they did nothing but blaming internet service provider which eventually proven incorrect. 4. If you live there for a year, you would have to leave your apartment at 3AM or 7AM or anytime for for terrible fire alarm. 5. Sonder said no pet allowed but I saw people with pet in their elevators and few apartments. Many times saw very bad smell for animal's waste in the all elevators. 6. Not child friendly place. My son got severe hurt in their 1st floor launch area. 7. I paid $1750 monthly, in an avg for almost a year but when I wanted to extend for a few months in the winter they asked me to pay $3400+ so I had to quit. Only advantage is its location, near to workplace and somehow furnished, so I had to stay there until I could eventually rent a proper apartment. Not recommended at all.

There is so much good to say about this place. The location is perfect, with easy access to public transportation. The hotel has a classy old world charm, and has successfully kept the hotel modern while still retaining details of the past. Pablo and his colleagues were very helpful, full of good recommendations and took action to address any small concerns. My only less than perfect comment would be that the breakfast area is in the basement. The night time temps were low, and we found the breakfast area to be very cold in the morning. It is unfortunate as this took away from the enjoyment of an otherwise fantastic breakfast.

My wife and I visited Barcelona in January and had a spectacular experience. Most of that was due to the incredible, thoughtful, and kind people at Sonder. The place was in a great location and everything at the hotel was beautiful. I would highly recommend it. Truly, there is no better place to be.

Great location, really easy to get around the city. The place itself is spacious and I liked the convenience of independent check in. It’s budget friendly and with that it’s not top tier luxury or anything, but it was perfect for my needs. Comfy and nice balcony view.

The space was great, loved the place for our stay. The tech in the building (front door and elevator) need work. Every time that I would use the front door or the elevator it was a fight. The touchscreen on the elevator doesn’t work right. If you touch a 6 it reads a 2. Not good when the code ends in 6! The front door sometimes just wouldn’t work at all no code no phone key. We had to buzz the front desk to get in. On the bright side great location and great room.

Hi Jeff, appreciate your feedback. We´re glad that you had a wonderful stay with us. Hope that the location and the comfortable room matched your expectations. We´re not sure about your comments about the elevator as it doesn´t have any touchscreen and works with the key of the room, same thing to the entrance door that is locked overnight for security reasons and our 24hs front desk will answer fast. Overall we´d love to host you again soon.
