For me this 4 star hotel did not live up to its promises. I stayed here for 4 nights with a room booked towards the exterior. While the staff is super friendly and nice and try to make this stay as comfortable as possible, I didn't enjoy my stay as much as I could have. The room is nice and minimalistic, the bed okay (did not think it was that comfortable, quite on the hard side), coffee and water not being refilled. But what really bothered me was the noise level from everywhere. Expedia and Booking.com say on their homepage this hotel has soundproof rooms. However, you can hear your neighbors talking etc and the construction noise was insane (8am-8pm). As this trip was mostly a business trip where I had to take lots of zoom calls, this was nearly impossible. You couldn't even hear your own thoughts. Working was made extremely difficult and I had to go to coffee shops with patchy internet to continue working, that's how stressful and annoying the noise was. Even without the noise level this hotel would only be a 3 star.

Hotel's Favorite
I have just returned from a long weekend celebrating my 40th birthday in Barcelona at the Duquesa de Cardona and would absolutely recommend this amazing hotel. For me, it just ticks all the right boxes. Location with views of the harbour and close to the ramblas, cleanliness, facilities with lovely bars and restaurant and fantastic service. I can honestly say the service in the hotel has to be the best I’ve experienced anywhere. Nothing was too much effort, the staff were always attentive, available and polite. The welcome we received and birthday suprise was absolutely lovely and showed the class of the hotel. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel and will certainly book again when i’m next in Barcelona.

I booked 5 rooms for a quick business trip in Barcelona and the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona did not disappoint. It is very well priced and has a fantastic location. We ate dinner on the roof terrace which is a hidden gem and they had a decent selection and the food was excellent.

We used the special weekend promotion which was set on a fix price including a nights stay, dinner for two and enjoying a drink at their terrace. Room is clean and spacious, comfy bed and big rain shower with bath. The food at the restaurant was quite simple but it was part of a great deal. The breakfast staff was very friendly, but the food on offer was quite limited. The best feature is the rooftop terrace, but cocktails are quite pricy (around 12 eu for an Aperol Spritz). The live midnight music was superb! And the young man wearing a suit who was looking after the service at the terrace was a superstar, very fast and efficient and you could sense his smile behind his mask. Overall a great stay and a great package!
