“Great room! ”
Reviewed 13 November 2013 via mobile

Stayed here for a romantic weekend with my boyfriend in November.
The room was huge, with 2 bathrooms, 4 showers, modern, big comfy bed.
Good central location and helpful friendly english speaking staff (Ivan)
Little pricey but would recommend.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

As everyone has said previously great room, location and lovely breakfast - even for us vegetarians with big appetites. What makes this hotel shine is the attitude of the staff - nothing is too much trouble for them. Ivan seemed to be on duty continuously during our 4 day break although I am sure he went home at some point. He was very patient with us and looked after our bookings and found the Segway tour which was the highlight of our stay - all with a smile!

When we told people we would be visiting Barcelona for my husband's birthday they all had suggestions. We did the open top bus tour the first day to get our bearings but found more than enough to do around the hotel and will have to return to do the museums etc further afield. We loved the closeness to the Gothic area and the Marina.

Beautiful hotel in perfect location in Barcelona; the staff were friendly and very helpful. The disabled member of our party found the room and bathroom excellent to manage in; the hotel itself really added to the whole holiday experience - thank you to Hotel Duquesa de Cardona, you really looked after us all.

Room Tip: They are all good!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was very nice. Despite being on a busy street, it was very quiet. The location was very convenient and could walk many places we wanted to visit.

The breakfast was very good and we are glad we included it in our room package.

We would definitely stay again, which we likely will in the future because we loved Barcelona.

Room Tip: Get a room on a high floor facing Marina for a good view.

This small boutique hotel was perfect for our needs since we were leaving on a cruise the next day and the hotel is right on the marina, maybe 10 minutes away from the cruise terminal. It is 2 blocks from the Columbus monument and on the edge of the Gothic Quarter so perfect for seeing some sights or shopping near Las Ramblas. Our room was very small but modern with a large bathroom, fully equipped.
The breakfast was adequate since we don't eat big meals then anyway. The great thing about this hotel was the bar on the top floor with a stunning view of the harbor. Great place to unwind or end the day.

Dear Guest;
Thank you very much for choosing hotel Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona.
Indeed, our hotel is a very convinient option for cruise passengers, since we are near the terminals Moll Adossat ( Adossat Quay ) and A,B,C and D Terminals. At the same time, our hotel is 3 minutes walk to Ramblas and the Gothic quarter ( historic center of Barcelona ).

We hare glad to hear you had a nice time with us, and we hope to welcome you again in our city and in our hotel soon.

Have a wonderful weekend

A great hotel for a family break in barcelona. The terrace bar and plunge pool added to the whole experience. We would definitely stay there again either as a family or as a couple. They recommended some good places to eat and definitely book in advance for tickets at the sagrada to avoid the two hour queue.

Great friendly staff and a very warm welcome (and not just because of the cava they offered). Location is prefect, close to the marina, the beach and the gotic quarter. Beautiful room and bathroom. Very clean. Beds were perfect. Breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, bread, pastry, different kinds of ham, cheese, yoghurt, cereals, eggs, bacon, sausages, juice, tea, coffee. We didn't have time to try the pool or the roof top bar/restaurant but we enjoyed the roof terrace and it's a very nice extra! We would love to visit this hotel again next time we visit Barcelona.
