I booked this hotel as a surprise holiday for my husbands 40th birthday. The hotel is in an excellent location, all the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We stayed for 3 nights and our room was situated at the front of the hotel, we thought that it would be noisy as there is a main road outside but in fact we heard absolutely no noise whatsoever and had the most fantastic nights sleep. The roof top terrace was an amazing place to have a drink in the evenings, we stayed in November but even though the evenings were a bit nippy they have heaters and even supplied us with blankets!! Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of visiting the beautiful city of Barcelona.

Nice hotel, but little touches missing, it would have been nice to have a fully stocked bathroom, tissues were empty , and no shower cap. There was a nice message saying you could request any item, but it would have been nice to have few more items for 2people as only one soap , one shower gel etc. also plug was not working so no relaxing bath.
Bed was comfortable as was room in general but pool much smaller than in the pictures. Staff very pleasant, did not have breakfast as we had other plans but in general a nice hotel for the price, mp3 dock would have been nice as would later opening time in hotel bar .

Stayed 3 nights before our cruise and 4 nights after our cruise. Front desk was very friendly and helpful when we needed directions or recommendations, especially the lady on duty during weekdays, I wish I remembered her name, the room was clean and well decorated (we had the superior room overlooking the port) and nice long and deep bathtub for soaking after all of the walking we did. We like to walk, so the location was perfect. Short walk to the Rambla, all of the restaurants in the Bario Gotic, and the beach. We even walked to our cruise ship with our small rolling suitcases, but I don't recommend that, except for those that are fit and really love to walk. It's a 5 or 10 minute taxi to the cruise terminal. We also walked to the Sagrada Familia (about 3 miles) because we think it is the best way to really get a feel for the city. The zoo is a short walk if you have children or just like zoos. We rode the hop on/hop off bus the first day and highly recommend it, the bus stops a few blocks from the hotel. For dinner, I recommend a walk to the Placa Reial, a large plaza with restaurants that surround the entire plaza, from pizza to fine dining and great atmosphere and people watching.

Room Tip: The superior rooms have a view of the port. Although the street noise prevents keeping the windows o...

I've just come back from 4 days staying at this hotel and want to recommend it - it's on the edge of the Gotic quarter just a few minutes walk from La Rambla and about 25 minutes from the airport. The staff are brilliant, very helpful and really friendly. The room I had was well decorated, was clean and well maintained - best thing though was that the bed was great, not too hard, not too soft, the pillows likewise. I was attending a conference at the CCIB which is only about 10 minutes away by taxi so if you are going there and can't get into the hotels near there this one is an excellent alternative. Next time I come to Barcelona I will stay here if they have room.

Excellent hotel - the hotels location is perfect, within walking distance of city tour buses which are perfect to hop on and off to see all the sites in Barcelona. Most friendly staff at the reception, in the dining area, the cleaning staff and not to forget - the great sky top bar overlooking the harbor with great drinks and the best roast beef sandwich I have ever had, perfect service too. Clean and comfortable bed. Lovely shops also within walking distance.
Unfortunately our telephone was stolen while dinning at one of the restaurants overlooking the harbour -.

Room Tip: Our room faced one of the side alleys, nosy at night due to all the tourists and bars/restaurants. I...

Dear Guest;

Thank you very much for your "Stunning" qualification regarding Hotel Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona. We work very hard every day to fullfith the expectations of our guests, and it seems we succeeded with you!
Indeed the location of our hotel is excellent to discover the historic center , but at the same time, we are the front door to the port , the beach and the mediterranean quarter Barceloneta. I am sad to hear your experience at that area.
We are very glad you liked our roasbeef roll sandwich New York in our terrace with view over the port, which is also a "classic" between the locals !

Thank you again for your kind comments about our staff, and we hope to welcome you again very soon in our Mediterranean lovely city!

Excellent hotel with only about 46 rooms. Get one facing the passeig overlooking the harbour. About 1/2 km walk from the hectic pace of La Rambla to the quiet luxury of our room. Within walking distance of so many amazing barcelona sites and city tour busses, great bed and pillows, and excellent bath facilities. Really good service from reception. English is no problem. About €33 to airport by taxi. We will be back.
