I stayed at the Duquesa de Cardona in September 2008 and had a great time. Great boutique hotel in an central and safe location. The rooms have no real views unless you pay extra for the ones that overlook the water (only 5 of them), but are a great size for Europe and large and very clean bathrooms. The breakfast was hot and cold - fruit, cereals, juices etc and scrambled eggs, bacon and micro sausages but no fried eggs. Beautiful French pastries and bread. It kept me going until dinner. The TV room is small but I would strongly suggest you have drinks and a swim in the plunge pool (it's small !) on the rooftop terrace, awesome views. Some guy had a massage and a guy playing a Spanish guitar for him one night. It's a 5 minute walk to Drassanes Metro, on the waterfront and at the edge of the Gothic Quarter. Barcelona has amazing atmosphere day and night, and we found ourselves wandering the nearby Gothic Quarter after dinner and drinks. Heaps of people about and generally very safe, but you do need to be aware. Walking distance to a lot of restaurants, bars and shops. Great hotel and highly recommended city.
