We arrived in Barcelona and we were pleasantly surprised to have our room ready early. We checked in and, map in hand, from a most helpful person at the front desk, we were off to Las Ramblas. The hotel is in a great location. It is right by the waterfront. It is in the central part of the city and... More

I've come to Barcelona every year for 8 years and this is now my favorite hotel. I've stayed at more luxurious hotels in Barcelona, but this one is very nice and more importantly, feels comfortable. The location is great as I like the old areas of the city. My room was bigger than I've come to expect in Spain but... More

We chose this hotel for our wedding anniversary and weren't disappointed. The guest relations concierge was excellent and I haven't come across a better one yet. On arrival we were presented with a glass of prosecco each (a nice touch !) while our room was being prepared. We had a snack and a beer at the open-air rooftop bar/lounge while... More

We stayed 3 nights in a privelegue room with a view to the harbour. Modern design and interior, spacious room, very good isolation. Cava when we arrived, beautiful breakfast, super service during the stay. The location is perfect with short distance to Bari Gothic, Las Ramblas, Barceloneta, etc. We will come back next time in Barcelona.

Dear future guests, Duquesa de Cardona is a small charming hotel located in the Gothic quarter (barrio gotico) and in front of the sea. I can say I was greeted in a very kindly way. As my room was not ready, (I have arrived a little bit in advance), I have been entertained by Mr. Jordi Ibanez. Jordi has accompanied... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
