Comfortable stay near unique tapas restaurants
This hotel is in an excellent location. Blocks from Las Ramblas, the beachfront, old town, and great tapas. The hotel has a glorious rooftop restaurant with amazing food that’s priced right. On the subject of food, as you exit the hotel, turn right, then turn right at the first corridor. Walk straight ahead crossing over one nartow street. Then, at the next intersection turn right. You’ll find a secret tapas bar called Gilda by Belgious. Amazing tapas! Also, there are other great restaurants on that street and immediately behind the hotel. Lastly, the front desk staff are like world class, they speak great English and they’re amazingly helpful. You’ll be in good hands here! Oh, one more thing, rent a scooter for a few hours and ride along the beach boardwalk. It was one of the best things we did! To get to the scooter rental place, exit the hotel and go to the right for about 1 to 2 blocks. The rental place is just along the road.

Possibly my favorite hotel, ever!
Hotel Duquesa de Cardona may have been the best property I have ever stayed in. The hotel is beautiful and clean, the rooms are comfortable and sizable, the views from the rooms as well as the rooftop restaurant are incredible, not too big and not too small, quiet, perfectly located and at an excellent price. However, I believe above all this the staff is perhaps the best I have ever encountered. The Front Desk Staff and Baggage Porter were above average. There was nothing more we could have asked for. Friendly, Through and Professional Extremely knowledgeable and wonderful with recommendations. Four days was not enough time, the admirable staff and property made me want to return to Barcelona!

Nice hotel but some construction noise
Nice hotel - clean rooms that are well-kept, very friendly and helpful staff, great location on Passeig de Colom, and nice rooftop with views. Negatives were that bathroom could use some updating, WiFi was weak in my room and unfortunately the building next door is under construction so there was some construction noise during the day. Was fine because I was not in the room much but if you’re there for work or have young kids napping during the day might want to look somewhere else.
