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.

We stayed at the Hotel Duquesa for two nights as part of a larger trip to Spain and cannot say enough great things about our experience. The beds were so comfortable, the bathroom amenities were top notch, the rooms were big, clean, and cozy, and the location is perfect for walking anywhere. The breakfast is expansive and delicious, take time and eat in. The best part, however, was the amazing staff that welcomed us right away, suggested dining and helped with reservations, and treated us like family, especially our kids. We had such a nice time that when plans changed and we ended up back in Barcelona unexpectedly, we called them right up to stay again. It was the best overall hotel experience we have had in a while and would enthusiastically reccommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Barcelona.

Absolutely gorgeous hotel, each room is thoughtfully decorated. Wonderful location, right by the harbour and close to a huge range of great restaurants. The the best part of the hotel is it's customer service - I cannot remember the last time I had service this good in a hotel. The people that work there set a bar of the highest caliber. Nothing was too much, every one of them went above and beyond to make our stay a great one. Highly recommend and will be booking again ❤️

I had a great experience at Duquesa de Cardona. The hotel itself is gorgeous and the service is outstanding. I arrived early and the super friendly person at the reception suggested that I go for lunch at their lovely roof terrace whilst waiting for my room. The lunch was very excellent, the waiter then informed that my room was ready and I got my key. All very seamless and professional. The breakfast is fantastic with everything you might want. The ground floor bar is a great place to hang out and again, service is impeccable. The hotel is beautiful, the location is great but what really swung it for me was the consistently friendly service from everyone i encountered working at the hotel. I will be back!

Returned to Hotel Duquesa de Cardona following a 3 year absence. Absolutely love this hotel. Great location, amenities and staff. Service is excellent throughout the stay. Love the breakfast offer which we tried for the first time. Great quality food and overall breakfast menu. Room was lovely and room services are excellent. Superb location close to the sea front and docks areas. Amazing views from the roof top bar. A great base for exploring all areas of Barcelona. Highly recommended to all.
