      Everything about our stay at Duquesa de Cardona was wonderful and we cannot praise the courtiness, expertise and kindness of the staff enough. The location was better than we ever dreamed...with a stunning view of the sea and at the heart of city. Even better, the noise level was never an issue as one would expect for a location that is so convienent to everything. The room was cozy and classy and the bed very comfortable. We will not hesitate to choose this hotel on our next trip to Barcelona.

      There was not a single thing we did not like about Duquesa de Cardona.

      The roof terrace is a great bonus. I think food and drink should be available throughout the day and until late at night.

      I think breakfast should be included in the price of the hotel room and not an extra cost.

      Really lovely hotel with very nice staff. Would recommend this hotel no problem. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable.

      Noisy - this was not the hotel's fault - its just life in Barcelona.

    • Older travelers

      The location is very attractive, opposite the Marina, the entrance is light and spacious and the Reception friendly and efficient. The bedroom is also well designed, especially the bathroom. The provision of bathrobes and slippers is appreciated. The short walk along the shoreline to Las Ramblas makes a pleasant approach.

      The bedroom faced another building across a narrow alleyway, a sea view would be marvellous but obviously it cannot be arranged for all bedrooms! One of the reasons for making the booking was because the Hotel had its own restaurant, however when we sat down to dine it transpired that there were no hot dishes. Even the lunch menu involved a series of tinned fish done in various ways. Consequently we abandoned the hotel restaurant and went out to eat. I suspect that occupancy does not warrant running a working kitchen but this is not the image projected in the advertising. I like the hotel and will stay again but some thinking needs to be done about the catering.

      Fantastic location. Our very quiet 5th floor room faced the harbor and provided a great view of the area. The hotel is close to many great Seafood, traditional and tapas restaurants. Walking distance to La Rambla street. Staff we extremely helpful with directions to restaurants and sightseeing venues.

      Only wish would have been an earlier room cleanup.

      The room was spacious clean and well equiped.

      The room was a bit noisy. Breakfast was a bit basic for the quality of the hotel.

    • Older travelers

      Location, price, view from balcony room at front (room 42). There was nothing we didn't like. We would stay again and would be happy to recommend. The hotel provided everything but soap, (and thats not an issue as most people have their own). Key point is the bed was great and after all thats why we are there!

    • Group of friends

      The hotel was extremely comfortable and elegant and the staff were friendly and very polite. The bedrooms were clean and the upgrade to a harbour view was well worth it. Very good position for exploring town, the port area and the beach. Would definitely go there again.

      Breakfast was expensive so we ate out after the first morning.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      We loved this hotel as it is centrally located, beautifully appointed rooms (spacious too) and friendly hotel staff. Highly recommend this hotel!

      Only thing I would ask of the Hotel is to remind the guest about the cost of the breakfast. Although there are lots of breakfast items, we were in a hurry and we just grabbed a coffee and pastry which ended up costing about 40 euro. Very expensive coffee and pastry :-( Had we known how much it cost, we would have either skipped it or go down much earlier so that we can enjoy all they had to offer.

    • Older travelers
      7.0

      The hotel is perfectly placed away from the main area of la rambla. There are some good restuarants and tapas bars within walking distance. The hotel itself is clean and the staff welcoming. The terrace is lovely for relaxing with a glass of cava.

      Our room was at back of hotel and very noisy at two in morning. For some this would be a real problem.

    • Group of friends

      Excellent help at the front desk. Answered all of our questions and assisted however we needed. Very nice style and rooms were nice sized. Had a really charming bar and restaurant on the top floor which we visited for a pitcher of sangria on several occassions!
