Hotel Duquesa De Cardona was a wonderful hotel to stay in! The hotel was in pristine shape with modern decor and a comfortable atmosphere. The rooms were always clean. Additionally, the location of the hotel is perfect; it is within the heart of Barcelona and only a short minutes walk from the beach and Las Ramblas - downtown. It is... More

Need a place to stay after a long cruise. Great place to unwind, friendly staff and good ammenities. Welcoming glass of sparkling wine was a nice touch. Great roof top lounge with mini swimming pool to keep cool.

The hotel is just across the street from the marina, which offered my wife and I stunning views of the Port Vell from our bedroom balcony. The terrace presents the same beautiful view, making it an ideal location to enjoy a cocktail or to sunbath on the outdoor lounge chairs. We were within a 10 minute walk from nearly every... More

I last stayed at this hotel about 4 years ago and although I enjoyed the hotel I never returned until this year. The reason I hadnt returned was that I found the rooms slightly dated and dark, however looking online I noticed the rooms had been given a makeover. This time I booked through the hotels website and booked a... More

This is a second time we chose this hotel for our 3 day and 2 nights stay and as in previous year we were not left disappointed! Amazing customer service on arrival, everyone at the reception accommodated our every need! Lovely surprise in the room as well. We dined upstairs and food was very tasty indeed. We will definitely come... More

The hotel feels like something tiny-special. It is not a huge hotel as one may think, 6 floors, but each floor and section seems somehow different, unlike many mass-hotels and you notice, that this hotel does not aim at masses but being a special and exclusive residence. And indeed they meet this in my opinon. Having stayed in the Privilege... More

If you like both the beach and wandering around Barcelona this is the place for you. 5 min walk to the beach but still just by barrio gothic. Great rooftop bar, nice views from the balconies. Highly recommended - might be a bit pricey, but you cannot beat the location!

The hotel has got perfect location, close to everything: La Ramblas, port, beach and great local restaurants! We stayed in double room with no view, however the view from roof bar is amazing. The rooms are very clean and bathrooms are well equipped.

We rented a deluxe room with a balcony on the port side of the building. The room and view were amazing. The location of the hotel in the Old Town of Barcelona made most of the sites we wanted to see easily accessible. We rented a car for a couple days to visit sites further away, but that is not...

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

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.
