XVI century building renewed for an accurate high level Hotel use. Completely rebuilt, the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona keeps in its noble parts the spirit and own style from the original structure, which combines with modern and vanguard deco in the rooms.
The Hotel Duquesa de Cardona, a four superior star category hotel is located at the maritime promenade called 'Moll de la Fusta' keeping the Gothic Quarter in its back.
From its location you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view from Montjuic Mountain and Christopher Columbus monument to the Olympic Port.
The Hotel Duquesa de Cardona is part of the block tha faces the 'Moll de la Fusta', delimiting Mercé Street (North), Plata Street (East), Passeig Colom (South) and Simó Oller Street (West). The Hotel Duquesa de Cardona has six levels and a nice terrace as well as a plunge pool on the penthouse. During the XVI century the property was in Cardona family's hands. In that age, lineages like the Gualbes, The Montcadas, the Queralts and the Cardonas built in this site their prestigious houses, which lodged the Royal Court during its stays in the city of Barcelona.
The present construction was finished in 1850 when Josefa Trabal was the owner. We can appreciate that the building was made in an eclectic style under a neoclasssic inspiration. Its most noble face was the one that could be opened from Mercé Street, however the sea wall desappearance in 1888 the Passeig Colom face became the most visible one.
Although all these years the Hotel Duquesa de Cardona has had different owners, the building has always held private houses. Finally, a group of investors decided to create a new and different hotel project to give an actual sense to this 1800 building.
