We stayed at this lovely hotel in early October. We booked online and didn't really know what to expect. We couldn't have been any more pleased. It is located within walking distance of all the places of interest, Las Ramblas, the Port, the tourist buses, the beach and the Gothic Quarter.

The staff couldn't have been any more friendly and helpful. The roof terrace was perfect and the mojitos went down a treat. On the days when the weather turned chilly, the staff offered us blankets so that we could sit out on the terrace for longer. Breakfast was relaxed and always good and the room was serviced quickly and efficiently.

Would highly recommend a stay here.

Dear Guest;

Thank you very much for visiting hotel Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona during your last visit to Barcelona. We are happy to hear you liked our location in the city, and the service from our staff.
Indeed our terrace on the sixth floor is ready to welcome our guests all year through, since the Mediterranean weather is very mild, and even in December or January, with heaters and a blanket, it is still very comfortable to be there and enjoy the fantastic views.

Thank you for your excellent review, and hopefully see you again!

With kind regards

Sandra Martinez

I love, love, love this boutique hotel! Its location is right across from the port, a few blocks from Las Ramblas and right around the corner from two cute little casual tapas bars: Boga and La Plata. In nice weather (and my stay was on October 24th), the hotel's rooftop terrace (with tiny pool) is open, serving lunch and drinks and offering a superb view.

The above alone would be enough for me to love the hotel but while checking out, the woman at the desk received a phone call from the housekeeping person who was cleaning my room. I had left a dress and a blazer behind in the wardrobe! The housekeeping person's quick action prevented me from sailing away--literally--without two of my favorite garments.

A terrific place with fabulous, service-oriented people!

We would highly recommend this hotel as we loved the location with its marina views. Also near to Aquarium and La Ramblas. On arrival enjoyed complimentary drink then lunch on the roof terrace in the october sun while enjoying another glass!. The hotel concierge was very helpful as were all the staff. Lovely find, nice to get back to the hotel to relax (lovely comfortable big beds ) after the hustle of Barcelona. Only gripe is that the only bar was on the terrace that did not have any heaters.Near to the charasmatic lanes where the choice of eating authentic paella was in abundance and doing the city break ritual of 'people watching'.

Regarding the heaters: in october we introduced 4 new heaters in our roof terrace, and blankets to keep enjoying our terrace cocktail bar also in winter. We are sorry if they were not there yet during your stay with us!

This hotel met all our expectation and more. The location was perfect. The staff at the hotel made you feel like you were part of their family and went out of their way for us to make our stay there very pleasurable. The view from the rooftop was the best ever. We will return for a longer stay in the near future.

My partner and I spent 4 nights at hotel duquesa de cardona and would highly recommend it. From the minute we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful giving us a map of the area and pointing out the good places to visit. The location was ideal for restaurants and la rambles was a 5 minute walk, as was the nearest metro and the beach is around a 15 minute walk. The staff were happy to call a taxi if we required one and said it would be around 10euros to the beach.

The room was very nice with great views of the narrow gothic quarter streets! We had a bath with shower in addition to a seperate power shower. The bed was very comfortable and the tv had a few English Channels. The rooftop bar and pool has excellent views of the port and does great food. Breakfast was also very good with a wide selection of hot and cold food. Overall for the price you pay for this hotel I believe it is excellent value!
