An historic boutique Barcelona hotel in front of the port and just a few minutes’ walk from Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter.

The Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona is a fantastic choice for a hotel in Barcelona. The non-smoking hotel beneficiates from a privileged situation on the sea side, close to the port, in the heart of Barcelona. From here, guests can enjoy the most emblematic places of the city including Las Ramblas, the Cathedral of Barcelona as well as the Gotic Born Quarter and Santa Maria del Mar. The Barceloneta Quarter with its numerous seafood restaurants near the beach is also a short walk away.

This XVI century residence has been completely rebuilt for top level boutique hotel use and you will find a beautiful building both inside and out. The 4-star Hotel Duquesa de Cardona retains the spirit and the style of the original building, combined with a modern “vanguardista” decor in the rooms. The restaurant downstairs boasts high and curve ceilings, frescos on the walls, paintings and mirrors reminding us of the building’s history. The penthouse terrace on the top floor features a restaurant cocktail bar, a pool and a solarium from where you can enjoy unforgettable views over the port of Barcelona.

The rooms at Duquesa de Cardona Barcelona are decorated with warm sand colours respecting the modernity but also the history of the hotel; it used to be a palace, in the 16th century. Every soundproofed room includes an en-suite bathroom and is equipped with modern amenities such as complimentary wireless Internet access, safe deposit box, minibar and a television with satellite channels. Room service is also available and wake-up calls service can be arranged at the reception.

Duquesa de Cardona is surrounded by all the city centre attractions. Offering good working conditions for business guests, the hotel is of course ideal for tourists who will have a large choice of remarkable shops, buzzing cafs, lovely restaurants and many other points of interest on their doorstep allowing guests to feel the ambience of Spain’s second capital city.
