“Business trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I only stayed there 2 nights, but the hotel was very clean and the rooms were more than adequate. The hotel is right on the Marina De Bacelona in the old section of the town and had walking access to so many sites including a famous cathederal. Many cafes around.

Room Tip: I wouldn't know of any bad rooms!

Stayed hear a couple of times and been impressed with the views from the roof top bar and plunge pool. Friendly staff and tastefully decorated modern clean rooms. Breakfast was good and there was no shortage of grub.

Great location with excellent view of the harbour from the hotel room. Stay was only for 1 night but would definitely use this hotel again. Room was a good size, with a large and well presented bathroom.

Fantastic base,a spacious room very clean, excellent staff and service throughout our stay. We were offered a room upgrade on arrival for a small amount which was worth the extra. A glass of bubbly offered whist checking in which was a nice touch .

Only booked for one night prior to joining a cruise ship. Very nice and convenient location with excellent roof garden overlooking harbour - it was possible to see arrival of ship the next day with lots of taxis passing if you don't feel like the walk to join it.
We had an excellent spacious room with a balcony and it couldn't be faulted. The breakfast deal was booked in with the room and again was excellent.
All in all a very pleasant experience - thank-you Duquesa de Cardona and hope to return again.

This was a great well priced hotel to stay in Barcelona. It is in a great location by the port and walking distance to most of the sites, and the metro. There was a mix up in the booking (not their fault) but they sorted it out immediately and upgraded us. We asked for a cot for our daughter and it was all arranged with an extra set of bedding,towels and toiletries! We had a great view from our room and balcony.
The front desk were friendly and helpful and arranged tickets for us to go to the Familia Sagrada. The breakfast was great with a wide selection, and good service. Good tip - ask for a tray downstairs and take your breakfast up to the roof terrace..
We spent our Sunday having lunch in the sun on the roof terrace..if we had bought our swimming costumes we would have gone for a dip in the mini pool..
This hotel made our stay in Barcelona a magical weekend...definitely recommended.

Room Tip: It is worth getting a port facing room...

Great little hotel right in front of the harbour. The hotel is nice and the rooms good, but not big (not unusual for Barcelona).

But the staff set this hotel apart, they can't do any more to help. Love the roof terrace as well -great fro chilling out or a pre-dinner drink.

Room Tip: Suggest go higher then floor 5 to ensure good harbour view. Rooms at back of hotel have no view
