My daughter-in-law and I found this hotel after we arrived at the one we had booked online to find it boarded up, having been closed for months. David at reception spoke perfect English and could not have been more helpful. The hotel was stylish and clean, and the beds were very comfortable - even the pillows were good, unlike the usual bricks you get in hotels. Our rooms had a lovely view over the harbour. Breakfast was great with meats, cheeses, fruit, pastries and a choice of eggs (I recommend the scrambled).

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.

We absolutely loved this hotel. Fabulous rooms, fabulous staff and an incredible location right by the harbour. You can either walk up into the old town or down through the harbour onto the seafront so immediately. We felt very safe here and extremely well looked after by all the staff who could not have been more friendly or open to trying to help. We were both working during our stay and had wonderful options for working in our room, in the very expansive and comfortable lobby and also on the joyous rooftop overlooking Barcelona. And then at 630pm, we would have the very best margaritas in town - try them! We know the city very well and have stayed regularly over the last 20 years and I cannot think of a better view. Thanks very much and hugely looking forward to coming back soon

Last month I stayed in Hotel Seventy and so on my return opted to stay in another part of Barcelona to see how Hotel DdC fared given its high rating. First, the good bits: Great location with proximity to Las Ramblas and the Marina area. Excellent rooftop bar with fantastic views and the food was excellent - really fantastic food and cocktails and as we were leaving early breakfast was provided as a picnic. The service throughout the hotel was excellent: front desk to rooftop bar. What could be improved? COVID-19 restrictions aside, the hotel coped very well in spite of a quiet hotel so the downstairs bar was not open and everything felt a little ‘closed’. The most disappointing aspect was the rooms. They were functional, clean and comfortable but they looked tired. Showers above baths and the towels had seen better days. Finally, if you had a car and needed somewhere to park, it wouldn’t be next to the hotel. So Hotel Seventy or Hotel DdC? Fortunately, it’s a split decision. The location of this hotel makes it an excellent choice for the tourist. The rooftop bar and views are really fantastic made all the better with great food. It has a faded charm inside but is feeling a little behind the competition in the bedrooms. If you want a stylish fresh hotel and a cool place to hang out in the bar downstairs, Hotel Seventy is for you but it’s not as central and doesn’t have the rooftop bar.

Arrived quite early. They got the room ready an hour after our arrival and before the check in time. We had a standard room however Marta gave us a free upgrade to a premium room which was amazing and upon entry of the room we had a bottle of Champagne in a bucket of ice waiting for us and complimentary from the hotel. David was very helpful towards us during our stay in Barcelona. The hotel was very clean. The rooftop pool was great. They have 2. The hotel is roughly 10/15 mins away from the beach and same for los ramblas and the shopping centres and areas. Loads of restaurants nearby and next to the hotel. Overall a great stay so thank you very much
