What a fantastic hotel - great location and attentive staff. We - my wife and I and two children (22 and 13) - wanted a quiet hotel with sufficient room for the four of us and within easy walking distance of the main attractions. The hotel fitted the bill perfectly. We would throughly recommend it, especially the roof terrace.

The Hotel was ideally situated for the Gothic quarter, short walk to the beach and Las Ramblas. Hotel room was very good with a really comfortable bed and standard bathroom facilities. Breakfast buffet was excellent value but the food on the top floor let it down when we had lunch one day. The view however is amazing.

This hotel couldn't have been better for our first trip to Barcelona. Ideally located in the middle of the Gotic neighborhood in easy walking distance to La Rambla, the Born district, tons of bars and restaurants, shopping, beaches, churches, etc. Located across the street from Port Vell marina the views from the rooftop bar are excellent. Nice rooms, friendly staff...... More

We stayed here for a few nights before and after our cruise with two children. We had a beautiful room in the new B floors of the hotel, the decor was lovely. The room had floor to ceiling floors with a balcony looking out over the harbour. It gets quite noisy at night but the doors are sound proofed. The... More

Lovely hotel. Roof terrace was beautiful and lovely to relax with a drink or two. Only negative we had was the position of our room, it was over an alleyway with a very noisy bar right underneath our window. Would still return but would make sure well away from noisy alley

We selected the Duquesa de Cardona based on TripAdvisor ranking and its location directly at the harbor. It proved to be the right choice. From the moment we arrived (by car) the service was excellent; someone helped us with finding a closely located parking garage with special pricing for three days and with the luggage. It is a relatively small... More

Hotel Duquesa de Cardona has a prime location on Passeig Colom at the edge of the Bari Gotic overlooking Port Vell. The rooms on higher floors in front of the hotel have a great view over the Port, with good windows that keep out the street noise. The view from the roof deck, with its small swimming pool, bar and... More

We chose Duquesa de Cardona because we were going from there to the port to commence a cruise. We could not have chosen a better hotel. First, it is an old beautifully restored 19th century palace that looks out on the marina with the port just behind it. Second, the staff were perfect.....helpful, professional, cheerful.....they had it all. Third, the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
