Very nice, stylishly decorated hotel. Everything feels new, clean and in top condition. Staff are welcoming and provide a great level of service. The bedroom and bathroom were spacious and very comfortable with slippers, robes and decent toiletries provided. Complimentary chocs on the bed daily and choice of room fragrances were a nice touch. We were provided with a map... More

My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona for 4 nights after finishing a cruise in Aug 2014. It was our first time in Barcelona which we really enjoyed. First the good news. Great hotel and great location and great city. I won't repeat all the positives that most people have written in other reviews. We really... More

Comfortably sophisticated with an excellent location. Very friendly and helpful staff providing good but not overbearing service. Very good quality of furnishings. Had a problem with a smelly bathroom but they were very prompt to try to resolve this even though it was late at night. Breakfasts excellent and superb views from the roof terrace. The pool isn't really viable... More

Reading the reviews I hoped all would be good. Well we were not disappointed. The front desk staff were warm, welcoming, and helpful. Jorgi went above and beyond to assist with anything during our stay ( I'd add that most dining establishments were not this warm and friendly ). The rooftop pool/bar deck was perfection and a bonus with everything... More

Hotel Duquesa de Cardona is really well located down by the port in Barcelona. The positives are its location, which has sea views but is also minutes away from any destination in the old town. It had a wonderful roof terrace which has fantastic views and a bar, and is great place to come back to after some sightseeing to... More

Best hotel we have tried in Barcelona. The rooftop bar and pool are excellent and the views are to die for. The staff are fun and friendly but professional and made us feel so welcome and relaxed. We will always use this hotel when we stay in Barcelona - it's perfect!

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Really well positioned hotel for all that Barcelona has to offer... Staff were polite and friendly, reception and breakfast rooms were beautifully decorated. Our room was small and overlooked a courtyard, it was cool and quiet so great for us in busy hot August. We really enjoyed the roof bar/terrace and plunge pool,... More
