Hotel duquesa de cardona gave us outstanding service. The staff was always very kind and welcoming. The hotel is very beautiful and extremely clean. The rooms are gorgeously decorated, and are not like the typical hotel rooms. The decor of the hotel and rooms is contemporary elegant mixed with modern. The terrace has an amazing view of the bay with the harbour. The location of this hotel is prime, right across from the bay and close to restaurants and the downtown area. Our Catholic Church, The Basilica of Mercy was around the corner. We spent hours in the terrace using their swimming pools. They are smaller than in resort hotels of other countries but they were fun for little ones of ages 7 and 9, and for young adults and older people. The terrace restaurant is beautiful and the service is the best. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Barcelona. We stayed for 3 weeks here.

The Only Hotel I Will Ever Stay At In Barcelona!
We travel a lot but I rarely leave reviews. However Hotel Duquesa de Cardona deserves one! I cannot say enough about how amazing our experience was during our 1 week stay. The rooms, food and the staff were amazing! The location can't be beat. It's near La Ramblas, Gothic Quarter, Picasso Museum and the beaches... all walking distance. I will tell everyone I know about Hotel Duquesa. It did not disappoint!

We loved the location because your so close to main attractions especially walking the Born and Gothic areas. If you like smaller more quaint hotels this is a perfect place and the staff is so friendly and hard working especially Reuben!! Rooms are nice size and bathrooms too. Don't worry about noise because the balcony has 2 doors so traffic noise won't be a problem. Rooftop eating and drinking are nice!!
