The building and rooms are beautiful. The staff was barely pleasant. Did not offer assistance unless asked then answered our questions sparingly, without offering any additional advise or ideas. Also of importance, upon departure we realized that two bags of souvenir items (food and knicknacks) were missing (which we didn't bother reporting since we listened to another guests' complaint of missing items and the staff response).

Great hotel in a fabulous spot! We stayed three nights and then moved to another hotel because the Duquesa was booked for the weekend. What a difference! If you visit Barcelona (and you really should!) this is where you want to be. The hotel staff could not be friendlier. The rooms, while small by American standards, could not be lovelier. And the location is perfect. Walk to the best of everything (with the exception of a few spots -- more about that later). The view from the rooftop terrace is breathtaking; the terrace itself changes the whole vacation. It provides a wonderful, relaxing place to be outside! Bring your book, order a drink and enjoy one of most beautiful cities on this planet. Recommendations: You can walk to Las Ramblas, the Maritime Museum, the basilica of Santa Maria del Mar, the Olympic port, Port Vell, the Picasso Museum, the Gothic Cathedral, a gazillion plazas and tapas bars, etc, etc. See what I mean about location! Take the Bus Turistic to visit Parc Gueill, Sagrada Familia and Montjuic. Eat at The 4 Cats! Enjoy Barcelona and enjoy this hotel... we did!

We stayed in this hotel during the exhibition in CCIB that we were a part of. Staying previously on Avenguida Diagonal, we've decided to choose a more central location, even though it would mean a taxi drive to the venue. And we were so right!

The hotel is located right on the sea with a beautiful view on the harbor. We didn't take breakfast at the hotel, just walked a couple of blocks, got some coffee and snacks and went to the pier. It is just a 5 minutes walk to Rambla, and 5-10 minutes to any place in the gothic part of the downtown.

I had a standard room, and it was pretty dark, as there was just a small window facing the inner yard. But the rate we've got was pretty good for a 4* hotel (about 130 euros), so no complaints. The reception staff was very nice and helpful.

The roof terrace and sun deck are very nice. I've ordered food there and it was average, but the sunset and sea in front of you makes it up.

I would be happy to stay in this hotel again.

I did stay in this very good hotel in Januar. I asked for a room with harbourview and got one. Everything in the room and the bathroom, which were both very well-sized, was tip-top; Nice style, good materials, comfortable. Real four-stars luxe.
The people at the desk were very friendly and helpfull.
And of course the roofterrace is marvellous to relax on.
Many nice neighbourhoods on walkingdistance. E.g.the Born is next door, with a lot of good places to eat and drink.
And very nice as well: The low prices in Januar, when there are already much sunshine and good temperatures in Barcelona.

We had a nice three night stay from 1/26 - 29/2008. The location of this hotel was great with just a short walk to Las Rambla, the Gothic Quarter and a nice view of the Sea; a quick walk to the Christopher Columbus statue to catch the Bus Touristic tour bus, which is a great way to get to the key destinations in Barcelona.

Service at the Duquesa de Cardona was excellent. All were English speaking and willing to help. Despite being a cool evening, they accomodated our request to bring drinks up to the 6th floor roof patio after dinner.....a very relaxing patio.

One word of warning....the hotel does back up to a "street" in the Gothic Quarter. With the lively nightlife of Barcelona going into the wee hours, there were a couple of sleepless nights due to partying outside the room. Request a room facing the small internal courtyard (not a great view, but peaceful nights, according to my traveling associate).
