Cute little adaptation of a historic building. Great location, I booked because it’s close to the beaches. The hotel concept still feels like work in progress, not the finished idea, overall a bit too boutique for me, felt a bit small, and I felt watched by the staff a bit too much, especially when coming and going through reception. - Room size was good but not very interesting, and the single continuous brown decor felt a bit depressing. I didn’t enjoy staying in the room. - Great sized, modern large bathroom & very hot shower - Charming breakfast room with heritage elements, buffet was small selection, average things. - Very clean throughout, all rooms and bar area. - Excellent location at bottom of Gothic quarter and close to beaches & Barceloneta - Roof top terrace looked great, but wasn’t really open in December + pandemic - Although rooms are soundproofed, I could hear the people in the next room and my room was next to the building renovation next door, so it was not a quiet experience. I would come back again in the future. The location is great, and I think once it settles into itself, it could become more charming.

Hotel's Favourite
I have been looking for a hotel of excellent quality at a fair price in Barcelona for several years. I tried many 3* and 4* and 5*, but never had a "wow" effect. And I found that one. This one gave me a "wow" effect for several reasons: 1. The staff is the best I found in Barcelona up till now. 2. The location is perfect 3. The hotel is classy and the room are beautiful and very clean with all the needed amenities.

Our weekend break at Duquesa de Cardona was superb. We arrived at 11 am and David at reception was so welcoming. A room was available and we settled in as if it was ‘home from home’. Our room was wonderful and spotlessly clean. Breakfast every morning was a delight. Truly excellent experience made so by the welcoming and professional team at the hotel. A return visit is a must. Thank you. Ian & Jill.

Beautiful hotel in a great location. The staff were wonderful. We had a room with a small balcony facing the front of the hotel; we really enjoyed that. Beautiful rooftop area. Highly recommend this hotel. We were there during CoVid and felt the hotel was clean and as safe as it could be.
