Luxury Barcelona Jul 22, 2016
After an airline cock up with bookings we had to spend an extra night in Barcelona on our way back to Dubai.

I did an internet search and found the Duquesa de Cardona. Recommended by the Daily Telegraph newspaper of the UK who have an excellent travel section. In particular the location is fantastic overlooking the harbour area and the rooftop bar that gives amazing views of the whole seafront.

We checked in just as the sun was setting and after a shower and brush up we headed up to the bar to see the views for ourselves. We weren't dissapointed and sat for a few hours enjoying some local beverages with our dinner.

Happy with our choice we slept soundly in the huge bed in our tastefully decorated room. Next morning we went down to a sumptuous breakfast buffet. Probably the best I have ever seen in a hotel anywhere in the world. An amazing amount of choice in a wonderful setting in this lovely old building. Dating from the 16th century it was home to nobility and a refuge for kings. Restored in 1850 and converted into a high-class luxury hotel on 2003, the hotel preserves the building´s original spirit.

Not cheap but the setting makes it worthwhile as an occasional splurge.

Though it is not in the city’s busy center it provides direct access to the world-famous Las Ramblas, and the many shops, restaurants, museums and theaters that line it.

The Duquesa de Cardona Hotel is located along Passeig Colom 12 and is a short commute to the airport outside of the city.

There are 40 “first class” rooms in the hotel, including five junior suites.

The beautiful nineteenth century structure houses the many leisure and business amenities that give the hotel its “luxury” classification. Guests have access to the fitness center and rooftop terrace where there is a swimming pool and food service.
