Even though the hotel faces the port and is on a busy street, it's calm and quiet. Our room was comfortable and well designed. There is a "swimming pool" on the roof that is VERY small. But it's a pleasant roof deck with bar and snack service and great views. The hotel is old but tastefully updated. Probably because it... More

Large bathroom with separate bath and rainforest shower. Problem with lunch on the first day was dealt with very professionally by the staff and never put us off this lovely hotel. Small... More

We take great care when booking our family holidays, this one included my elderly parents (mother wheelchair dependent) and our teenage sons. We already knew the location was perfect but from the moment we walked through the door we knew we'd picked a winner. The reception staff were welcoming, taking great care to facilitate my parents at all times. We... More

My wife and I were celebrating our honeymoon with a 12 day cruise that started in Barcelona and so we needed to find a hotel that was close to the Port of Barcelona. A quick search on Expedia turned up the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona. It was fairly highly rated, the photos looked lovely, and they had a great deal... More

The hotel is conveniently located in Barcelona, close to old part of the city with many quaint streets and yet close to the water. Apart from the location, the rooms and bathrooms are clean, renovated and good size, although the lobby is in need of some upgrading and feels and looks tired. Guests get to enjoy a small roof top...

My husband and I spent two nights in Barcelona, with this hotel as our base. The location near the harbor was perfect for us. After a day in the July Barcelona sun, the showers and bath were luxurious. The staff could not have been nicer. It's what a hotel should be.

I thought and was a really good value considering other hotel prices at the time. The rooftop bar is a great place to enjoy drinks at the end of... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
