Individual guest reviews

  • Location views over the harbour friendly staff and the hotel is close to many great Seafood. Service is fine, rooms are beautiful and the food, wine, and ambience are fantastic. The pool is tiny and not worth in my opinion.

    Street traffic, as is in a busy area, less than a 10 minute walk to Las Ramblas and the place has a very bad smell. As most restaurants in Barcelona do not open 8 pm.

  • The location was great and the hotel was extremely comfortable and elegant and the staff were friendly. Service at the Duquesa de Cardona was excellent and rooms were nice sized.

    For a 6 night stay, that was very inconvenient and a really,really ugly large painting.

  • Loved the room and location, nice stuffs. The very helpful staff, great concierge and bed was comfortable, bathroom BIG and we didn't suffer any noise problems.

    Hotel smelled of artificial air freshner and service in the rooftop bar was painfully slow.

  • Great location very quiet rooms and near Ramblas. The staff were helpful, we upgraded to suite was wonderful.

    Nice hotel on busy road, service at the Front Desk for the most part was good and breakfast was an additional 16 Euros each and not worth the price.

  • View good selection of nearby resturants, brilliant seafood restaurant on the port and vey near town and the beach. A nice place to stay and i loved being in an beautifully updated period building. The breakfast was included in our room booked and was a continental buffet style, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The heating/cooling system worked well and the rooftop bar was perfect.

    The computer in the common area was very slow and hotel was a bit overpriced. The choice was limited and finished items were not replaced.
