“Really great”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This is a great spot for staying in downtown Barcelona. You get the benefit of being at the bottom of the Gothic area and a view of the harbor; nothing beats a jog on the beach. The hotel has great rooms and even though it is on a busy road, it is very quiet. Be sure to ask the front desk for dining ideas; there ae great spots within very very short distance. We stayed for 4 nights. and it was great.

Dear Jon R,

Thank you for the nice words on your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. Your special mention to location, comfort of rooms and of course our great staff make us really proud. Certainly we are in a privilege location, right in the gothic quarter and facing the harbour, very close to the main sights of the city and undoubtedly we can recommend you the best places to visit. We are looking forward to welcoming you in your next stay in Barcelona!

This hotel is a great place to stay for visiting Barcelona. I went with my daughter and she managed to get a good discounted price on the Internet. We did not eat at the hotel, we got an excellent breakfast on the Las Ramblas and we found some very good Bistro type restaurants in the Gothic Quarter just behind the hotel for evening meal. We had a very nice reception when we arrived at the hotel, each given a glass of Cava. The beds were exceptionally comfortable with a variety of pillows. Dressing gown and slippers were provided. We had a room overlooking the Marina with a small balcony. The hotel has a roof terrace with fantastic views over the Marina. Would definitely stay there again.

Great hotel. Immaculate quality and location. There were three of us and the room was perfect as it had one king bed and two single beds against the opposite wall so noone had to snore in each others faces :) The quality of the finishes everywhere was very high. Location is spot on -- everywhere within walking distance, Tapas bar on the doorstep for 5am return, great view over the old port. Only watch-out is a bit quiet and the roof terrace is more for hanging out with a better half (for a romantic stay this would be a really good hotel), than a big social scene. (Would also say a bit limited if I'd been there with the wife and kids -- pool is tiny).

Was at the hotel for 4 nights for a weekend in the summer with a buddy of mine and had a great stay. The front desk was extremely helpful with all of our questions in english and we were always happy with the outcome. Unbelievable location and a great price. No complaints. Wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else.

A friend recommended this hotel in Barcelona and it was perfect. The location was great for shopping, good restaurants and jogging along the ocean. The free breakfast was a nice touch and we loved the rooftop bar. We would stay here again

Room Tip: European rooms can be small, so we got the quadruple room and it was worth it.

I am traveling with my two teen sons and large rooms are hard to find in Europe, but the hotel Duquesa's superior room was perfect. The hotel is immaculate, the staff friendly and the rooms are exceptional. The one we had had a separate office with a desk, and then the main room had three single beds and a sofa with a very nice bathroom (standing shower and tub). If you can afford this gem, it's worth it. Only drawback is that you're right on the highway. But the old city is right behind you and everything is in walking distance.
