On arrival, we were given a glass of cava and a warm welcome. We were too early to get into our room but our bags were locked away until we came back at check in time. When we did get back our bags and coats were already in our room. The hotel is on the road overlooking the huge marina... More

This hotel is located directly in the old Gothic Quarter of Barcelona enabling one to explore many of the main sights (Cathedral, Las Ramblas, Placa to Catalunya, Picasso Museum etc.) by foot. Copious good restaurants and bars are in the near vicinity however, just far enough away to have a quiet nights sleep. The hotel is clean and modern and... More

As beautiful as the hotel is and as happy as we were with all of the benefits of staying there, we most appreciated the high quality of service. The staff could not have been more welcoming and went out of their way to be helpful to us with restaurants, directions and recommendations. They even called technical support to find the... More

I've just returned from 2 nights at the Duquesa de Cardona while staying on business, and after spending hours trying to find a hotel to stay in (I'm quite picky!) I have found a true gem I arrived late Tuesday night and was greeted by a lovely gentleman on reception and a glass of bubbly which was lovely after my... More

The hotel's location is great,just near La Rambla,the port, and very close to metro and bus facilities. Amazing view from rooms overlooking Paseo Colom. The rooms are comfortable and fully equipped. A big thank you to all the staff, receptionists, and the awesome guest relations manager Jordi Ibáñez who helped make our stay even more amazing. Hope to be back... More

This hotel is very good, and has lots of advantages. It is a small high quality hotel, with a personal touch. It's nice when the staff remembers you - and opposite. The service in the reception is personal and very good - everything from serving snacks and drinks to umbrellas when it's raining. We had a family room for three,... More

I don't think I have anything negative to say, other than a squeaky lift! Was a lovely stay and very nice location. The rooftop pool and bar area is just fantastic, unfortunately I was there in winter so not quite warm enough for a swim! It would be amazing in summer though.

Spent 3 nights in this wonderful hotel. Perfect location and the staff couldn't have been more helpful with booking taxis,restaurants etc. The roof terrace was lovely and as we were blessed with great weather we made the most of using it. When I return to Barcelona I will certainly stay at this hotel again Thank you

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.
