We had a fantastic stay in Barcelona for four nightS. The Duquesa certainly added to the enjoyment of the trip. From being presented with a glass of fizz on arrival to being shown to our room, the overall quality of the staff, service and the facilities shone through.
The rooms are beautifully decorated and appointed. The rooftop bar is an obvious winner with great service and outstanding views over the port.
The location of the hotel is perfect as well. It faces the port and all that the beach and harbour can offer. It also backs onto the Gothic Quarter and is only 400 yards from LAs Ramblas.

Heartily recommended!

my wife, daughter and i (from south africa) stayed at the hotel duquesa de cardona for 3 days prior to boarding a cruise ship to south america.
the hotel experience was wonderful from the moment we checked in--the very attractive lady on reception was very fluent in english and most helpfull in what to do during our stay in barcelona.
the hotel itself was immaculate and our room was enormous with two full bathrooms.
the only negative was that their lovely roof-top bar facility was being used by an advertising company to film a commercial so we were not allowed up there for two of the days which was a pity as the views over the marina are spectacular.
the locality of the hotel is perfect for access to the marina/port/beaches/las ramblas and hop-on hop-off busses.
barcelona is a fantastic city and we would like to return some day and would definately stay at the same hotel---highly recommended

Dear Patrick,

First of all, thank you very much for taking your time and sharing your feedback about your experience at the Duquesa de Cardona. Our hotel is indeed very convenient for a cruise traveller because of our location, just a few minutes from all terminals. We are glad to see that our spacious family rooms were useful for your family and yourself. We take note about your comment about the terrace, if we occasionally have an event in the terrace, we always take care not to disturb our guests and to offer in the same terrace an area always available for the bar service. We truly appreciate your comments that allow us to improve every day. All the team of the Duquesa de Cardona wish you a Merry Christmas and we are looking forward to welcoming you again in a near future!

Best Regards,
Cristina Reus

I highly recommend this hotel. We had a wonderful two night stay. The room was classy, comfortable and very clean! The roof top deck provided a beautiful view. The staff members were all very pleasant!

The hotel was perfect for our short trip, it was centrally located and the rooms were clean and spacious. The views from the roof were nice but the pool a little small and more of a hot tub. The Gothic district was behind us so we explored the streets and shops but at night it can be a little unnerving as its a little eerie but overall it was safe and we felt at ease walking round. The staff were friendly and really helpful, overall I'd recommend this hotel.

The hotel is very well located, close to the marina area and a short walk to La Ramblas. Staff were friendly and helpful and whilst our stay was very short we were offered a free drink on the fabulous roof terrace with great views over the marina. Would definitely stay again.
