“Great hotel, great view, great location”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Small Hotel, very well furnished and decorated. in the heart of the city center and view on the port. unfortunately there is no fitness club and the swimming pool is tiny. however You can get a good consolation with a very warm staff.

Room Tip: Choose superior room in the 3 or the 4th floor for the view

Staff was very helpful, Location was great, away from the bustle of La Rambla, but less than 5 minutes walk to La Rambla and the subway station. Explore the area behind the hotel for great bars and restaurants that are not as tourist trap as others. Pool and lounge chairs on the roof were a nice touch, they have a bar on the roof as well with great view of the beach.

Room Tip: Basic room has a view to a wall, but not sure if paying extra is worth it.

We stayed at the hotel prior to our cruise trip. The hotel was in a nice location near the port and 10 minutes from La Rambla . The hotel staff was very nice and helpful! The bathroom was an excellent size having both a bath tub and shower. Although the room was nicely decorated, it was on the smaller side for the price we were paying bearing in mind that we stayed at hotel 1898 when we came back from the cruise and paid less for a bigger room.

The hotel is very well situated just 5 minutes walk from Rambla and close to Aquarium. The zoo is also not far away, so the point is great for those, who travels with children. It is really worth taking a room with a view on the harbour, as these rooms are much brighter. The noise is not a problem thanks to good windows and air conditioning. The breakfast was rather good, with good choice of food. The coffee, however could be better (nespresso could never overcome a cup of real coffee). The staff is very accommodating and friendly. The hotel offers all possible facilities to make the holidays great and easygoing. You can even ask for an umbrella in case of rain:). All in all I can recommend this hotel for everyone!

My family of five just spent two nights at the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona prior to going on a cruise. The hotel was great! The rooms were very modern, spacious and clean. The front desk staff was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast buffet was excellent as well! The hotel is in a great area for sight seeing in the harbor area or the gothic district. We highly recommend this hotel.

What a nice hotel, quaint, clean, efficient. Our room was looking out onto a patio and a bit dark. The bed was comfortable and ordinary. The terrace gave great views over the Marina from the "W" across to the Arts Hotel. small pool but good settees, chairs and cushions. Nice Tapas available. Good position for central Barcelona. We will stay here next visit to Barcelona. Nice friendly, efficient staff. Keep it up

After much research as to location, price and luxury, we chose the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona for our trip to Barcelona. Our room was lovely and it was in a perfect location, near but not on Las Ramblas and near the water as well. The only reason I can't give it a 5 is because the lobby and common areas were small and not luxurious but it was a beautiful hotel and our room was spacious and very nice. The added bonus was the sundeck and rooftop bar area which was a great way to relax after a day of walking and sightseeing. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Select the large family suite rooms in the newer area. Two showers in the room.

Dear Client

Thank you for your kind comments about our hotel. Taking on consideration we are a 4 star boutique little hotel, it is very nice to hear you would hesitate to consider us as a 5 star hotel. Indeed, our hotel is a little one, installed in a former palace of the 19th century in front of the port, very personal, private and comfortable to discover the city center of Barcelona, beaches and main attractions.

Thank you very much again for your words. We will be glad to welcome you again in a future visit to Barcelona

Wtih kind regards

Sandra Martinez
Marketing Director
