Great location, walking distance from the beeches and Las Ramblas. The staff were brilliant, really helpful and friendly. The rooftop terrace is a little gem and a great place to relax during the day, or in the evening before going out. Highly recommended

After extensive research on tripadvisor I selected Hotel Duquesa de Cardona...what a treat! Great location, amazing room (the pictures don't capture the beauty), and outstanding customer service.

What a stunning hotel in the perfect location. Loved the feel of this hotel from the moment we arrived. We had booked a deluxe room, port facing on the 2nd floor. Despite overlooking the main road, we hardly noticed any traffic noise. Rooms large with really comfortable beds, plenty storage and all the required amenities/complimentary toiletries. Good selection for breakfast...

We've just came back from 3 nights at this fabulous hotel - our 1st time in Barcelona. It's perfectly situated overlooking the Marina on the edge of the old town; has really amazing staff; lovely rooms; and a gorgeous rooftop terrace overlooking the Marina where you can sunbathe, have a cocktail and eat.

Nice hotel, good customer service & great location with lovely rooftop terrace. Probably the best location to be near the sights, the beach & shopping. My only criticism would be that it can be a bit noisy at night however not a big deal and would go back.
