Stayed at Hotel Duquesa de Cardona in January 2014 for a long weekend break. Right from the start the service was excellent, the room was spacious and clean and the hotel is in a great location with plenty of restaruants and things to do nearby.

Dear Yxseven1212,

Thank you for taking you time to write this kind review. As you remarked, we are very close to the beaches (very nice area for a stroll or running), right in front of the port (fantastic views from our terrace and rooms) and in the heart of the Gothic quarter. Our rooms have been mostly renovated very recently and we appreciate your positive comments on this, I am indeed very proud to belong to a very motivated team that strive to make each guests stay with us an exceptional one.

We hope to welcome back again very soon, and if it is from May to October, to enjoy our barbecue soirees!
Kind regards,

Cristina Reus
Hotel Manager

Spent a very enjoyable pre-Christmas long weekend with my wife and friends at the Duquesa de Cardona. Its situation, overlooking the port and very close to the old part of the city, is excellent and makes it very easy to get to many interesting parts of the city on foot. The bedrooms were a good size, comfortable and had well functioning modern bathrooms. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. A great breakfast.

I cannot thank you enough for your nice review. I am very pleased that your friends, wife and yourself chose our hotel for your pre-Christmas long weekend with us and that it was ‘very enjoyable’. We appreciate your lovely comments on the hotel, and particularly our rooms, newly renovated with great care for best comfort, and of course your kind words about our staff! Our team do strive to exceed all our guests expectations and to read that we have succeeded is just fantastic.
Certainly, the hotel is a perfect base to explore the city, located just at the hearth of the city, facing the harbour.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in a near future.

We stayed in Hotel Duquesa De Cardona in early January. It was not peak season, and Barcelona was all the better for this. The Hotel is a converted old "palace" or grand residence - lovely place. It is in a great location - facing Port Vell, right in the Gotic area, very close to Le Born, Barceloneta and the beaches, and most attractions (the best attractions in Barcelona are in fact these historic areas, with narrow streets, and endless surprises).

We booked a room for 4 people, which was very well prepared. The room also had 2 full bathrooms, with baths and showers in each.

The hotel has a lovely upper deck area overlooking the Port: even though it was winter and chilly, we still visited this area, and enjoyed the views one evening.

The reception and staff were very helpful, and the Hotel also had nice touches such as a welcome gift (cava), and little chocolates daily.

As a boutique hotel, it does not have a "kids club" or similar; but we have never used such facilities anyway (even when younger, our children objected to being stuck in "kids clubs"). If you are looking for a resort hotel, then this is not the place - however nor would you be wanting to go to Barcelona. If you want a great boutique hotel in a top location in old Barcelona, then this is ideal.

Overall this is a lovely hotel for both couples and families, and very well located.

My partner and I found this hotel via tripadvisor. We were delighted with our stay and the staff had a big part to play. A gentleman named Ivan and the other staff whom we dealt with were all very pleasant and helpful. The map of Barcelona, which we were given, was carefully explained to us and was very useful on our trip in finding great spots in and around Barcelona. The hotel room itself was spacious and the bed was comfortable. A hotel bonus is the open air bar on the top floor with a great view of the harbour. Unfortunately, the time of year in which we visited (November 2013) prevented us from utilizing this area enough as it was cold in the evenings. Nevertheless, our stay here was relaxing and enjoyable. The location is great! Close enough to the harbour, the inside cobbled streets with a range of little quirky shops and a few small bars, and yet still close enough to the hustle and bustle of the Las Ramblas strip.
