This is a very nice hotel and has a lot going for it. It's location is excellent, being right in the middle of the very south end of the Gotic Quarter, making it easily accessible by taxi. Many attractions as well as the whole Gotic Quarter are within a 20 to 25 minute walk. The hotel is clean and well... More

We're still currently staying at this hotel. I must say, third time to Barcelona and I would happily book this hotel again. We arrived before check in and were able to change and leave our luggage. When we returned, not only were we greeted with a glass of champagne but our luggage had already been taken to our room. Major... More

The hotel is in a great location near the port. The staff was very friendly and helpful! This hotel was also very clean and the rooms were a good size for 2 people. We would definitely stay there again.

We booked the basic room facing back but air conditioning did not work and shower leaked into main room causing me to slip! Very noisy next to a service elevator! In fairness, we fed this back to reception and we were moved. Current room appears better! Roof terrace staff not very attentive... had to chase for a second round on... More

We stayed four nights and found the room to be very clean, spacious with a large walk in shower and a comfortable bed which was bigger than a king size. We used the roof top area which includes a bar and a very small pool which was a good place to relax although the area couldn't accommodate too many people... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Duquesa de Cardona following a cruise on the Disney Magic out of Barcelona. The hotel is within walking distance of Las Ramblas, the metro, and several museums. The rooms were spacious and comfortable but the bathroom shower could use a full glass enclosure to avoid spilling water everywhere. There is a lovely rooftop terrace... More

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.
