Good but expected more for the price

Very clean, well maintained, and attractively decorated old-world hotel located across the street from the waterfront. There is a great terrace bar and hot tub space on the top floor that is comfortable and provides nice views of the waterfront area. We were warmly greeted when we checked in and sent off to our room with a glass of champagne in our hands which we thought was a nice touch. Even so, at roughly $400US for one night, we were expecting more and there were little things that annoyed us. For example, wash cloths were not provided; there was no shelf or counter top on which to place toiletries; a make up mirror was provided but placed in such a way as to make it unusable. The hotel has a nice dining room from which we enjoyed Sunday Brunch (an additional 18 Euros per person). Lastly, $400US per night was not enough to buy a nice view from the single window in room 15. All that we could see from our window was the brick façade of an adjacent building just 20-30 yards across the ally from us. We kept the curtains closed. There was much to like about this place but for the price, I would probably look at other hotels before going back.

Staff at reception were really

Staff at reception were really good - very helpful and friendly. The only criticism I have is about the food available at the bar upstairs. Given the wonderful food we had had in Barcelona, the choice was limited. Also, when we went up, there were no staff there and we had to go back down to the front desk to check

Small quality hotel with very good customer service. A personal touch and good location only round the corner from Las Ramblas and across the road from the marina. Marina is well worth a visit. It has a good indoor shopping centre and eating places.

Fremragende beliggenhed

Fremragende beliggenhed på kanten af den gotiske bydel, 5 minutters gang til Ramplaen og 10 minutters gang til Barcelonetta bydelen. Smuk tagterrasse med mindre swimmingpool, udsigt over hele havneområdet med lystbådehavn etc.. Godt værelse med gode senge og badeværelse. Alt i alt levede hotellets 4,5 stjerner helt op til forventningerne. Morgenmad dog ikke inkluderet i prisen men kunne tilkøbes for 18 Euro pr. person ( for dyrt), der findes dog et utal af restauranter omkring hotellet hvor det kan købes for det halve. Vi havde en rigtig god oplevelse af hotellet og kan varmt anbefales. VH. Steffen

Super Aufenthalt für eine Städtereise

Wir waren zu zweit im Hotel Duquesa und waren sehr zufrieden. Die Lage ist super, nur 5gehmintuten von der Rambla entfernet. Direkt am Hafen, einfach eine super lage. Ich würde wieder in dieses Hotel gehen. Das Personal war sehr freundlich. Wir haben um 15:00 Uhr einen roomservice gewünscht und diesen sofort bekommen. Kann dieses Hotel nur empfehlen, im zimmer 40zoll Samsung LCD TV. Im Bad waren 2 Duschen (eine Dusche + 1 Badewanne) Super grosser Spiegel, shampoo, badematel, seifen etc alles zur verfügung gestellt worden. Auf der Terrasse oben hat man einen super ausblick auf den Hafen. FAZIT : Sehr zu empfehlen :)

super Stadthotel

Dieses Hotel hat 4 Sterne verdient. Zimmer und Badezimmer sehr geschmackvoll und grosszügig. Das Frühstücksbuffet mit guter Auswahl. Mit 19 Euro teurer als anderswo, aber wohl üblich in Barcelona.

excellent emplacement

très bel hôtel, très bien situé (proche des Ramblas, du port, etc...). Seul point négatif, les chambres sont très mal insonorisées! Nous étions juste à côté de l'ascenseur de service et dès 7h15 du matin il y avait beacoup de bruit. La chambre était confortable -juste un souci avec les rails des rideaux-, la salle de bain spacieuse -elle aurait été parfaite avec une baignoire à la place de la douche-, une belle terrasse avec vue sur le port au dernier étage -avec bar et piscine- et le personnel était serviable.
