Duquesa is a good hotel, with friendly staff (pro-active, book tickets). Altough service was of less quality by the staff of the bar/restaurant on the roof. View from this rooftopbar was (esp at night) amazing, however. Perfect location to discover Barcelona. Approx 5-10 mins walk to Ramblas and metro station. Beach not so much on walking distance, if you ask... More

A fabulous hotel with wonderful views across the city and port. Barcelona is such a wonderful city and this hotel is faultless. The staff were brilliant and can't do enough for you and our room was quiet cosy and comfortable. Every where was extremely clean and we loved the terrace on the evening to have a cocktail or 2. I...

My friend and I had an excellent stay at this hotel. Both the service and the quality was exquisite. I highly recommend the rooftop deck/dining and small pool area. Our dinner on the roof was also wonderful. We both had seafood.

Perfectly located on the gothic quarter, 3 minutes from La Ramblas and across from the harbor, this hotel offers beautiful rooms. We had a family room which easily hosted 4 of us, with a comfortable bathroom and a little terrace. Breakfast was nice and the service was pleasant. A bit pricey but a good option.

We flew into Barcelona the day before our cruise to have the rest of the day in Barcelona. This hotel is not cheap but if you want a luxury boutique hotel in an excellent location, this is for you. We booked 2 rooms, a family room for my 4 and a double for my parents. Both rooms were beautiful with... More

One of the best hotel rooms I have ever been in. The room had very high ceilings and was very large but the best attraction was the large and beautiful bathroom. Location was close to port which was convenient for us as we had just completed our Mediterranean cruise in Barcelona. Only a short taxi ride to the hotel (did... More

Outstanding. Accommodations are great. Staff is beyond exceptional at service. Great location. Rooftop terrace lounge is fabulous place to kick off an evening or nightcap to finish a night on the town. Staff is versed in many languages and very knowledgable of local events, festivals, and great dining opportunities.

My girlfriend and I were extremely pleased with the service at Hotel Duquesa de Cardona. Upon our arrival, a receptionist met us out front to assist with our luggage, and a tourist friendly map and guide awaited us at the front desk, highlighting popular attractions and their distance from the hotels location. We quickly discovered dozens of exciting activities were... More

We had rented an apt in Barcelona but got the dates mixed up so we needed a hotel room for one night before our departure. The booking was so easy to do - and they offered us a discount. We had an early checkout from our apt so I contacted the hotel to see if they could provide an early... More

Located overlooking the harbour / marina / aquarium, and on the edge of the old quarter, an easy walk to the Ramblas, and with tourist buses passing outside. Hence, very well located. Family suite (B side) was comfortable, well-appointed (a/c, small baclony, bath & shower) and spacious for 2 + 2 growing kids. Staff were welcoming (complimentary drinks on arrival)... 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.
