The historic building, dating back to the 16th century has been transformed into a luxury hotel in 2003, has a panoramic terrace that serves as a cocktail bar and restaurant, with a splendid view of the Port Vell yachts.

The 63 rooms of the hotel maintain a unique and avant-garde decor, comfortable, elegantly furnished and soundproofed.
They are also equipped with individually adjustable heating and air conditioning.

Spacious and bright, with private balcony overlooking the harbor. The marble-clad bathrooms are spacious and modern, accompanied by a courtesy set. The suites offer a relaxation area and a Nespresso coffee machine.


Is located a few steps from the Rambla of Barcelona, between the port and an ancient pedestrian street in Medieval style. In the Barri Gòtic district, a picturesque neighborhood that is the heart of Barcelona, where historic artifacts dating back to Roman rule and up until the time of the Spanish Civil War are fused, with a vibrant modern culture of craft shops and authentic culinary experiences.

The structure is excellent for tourists who love the beach (the nearest one is Barceloneta), and is a good choice for travelers interested in food, sightseeing and culture.

Duquesa de Cardona is just 500 meters from the Maremagnum shopping center and the Barcelona Aquarium. It is 2.5 km from the famous Sagrada Familia and 300 meters from Barceloneta Metro Station.

El Prat airport is half an hour away by car.

Food & Drink

Intercontinental breakfast deserves to be tried. It is served on the ground floor and consists of a rich buffet of typical dishes, such as mini sandwiches with salmon and cream cheese and generous international dishes. On request it is possible to request scrambled, boiled, poached and soft-boiled eggs.

For lunch and dinner, the upstairs terrace welcomes its guests allowing them to enjoy a breathtaking view of the port of Barcelona. The menu is simple, unpretentious, with meat and fish as main dishes, with the addition of standard dishes that surround it, from cheesburgers to salads. Excellent is the wine and the typical Spanish champagne list.

In the evening, the terrace bar turns into a fantastic cocktail bar, offering the best of snacks and delicious cocktails, accompanied by an incredible view.


Friendly, patient, and ready to make you feel at home. They even remember the names of the guests.
For each room, the staff provides a mobile phone for any eventuality, with free international calls, and internet surfing.

Its strong point is without a doubt the terrace on the sixth floor with a breathtaking view above all at sunset.
Excellent for relaxing with friends, ordering light snacks, or enjoying a swim in the pool.

Unfortunately, the hotel doesn’t have a gym, but at the same time, it has two swimming pools on the upper terrace overlooking the city. For the disabled, the Duquesa de Cardona offers two comfortable rooms with all the comforts for a relaxing holiday.
