      Good Value In The City Centre


      Spent two nights here with my wife as a treat away from the kids.

      Room was spacious and quiet (at the back of the hotel) despite close proximity to Placa de Catalunya. Staff were helpful, and deal offered as a walk-in was excellent (transferred from other, poor, hotel).

      If you want to be near the main sites and access points without being kept awake by partying, then this definitely fits the bill.

      Excellent location


      Have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Duques de Bergara. We had a good sized twin room with a small wrought iron balcony overlooking the main street. It was very clean, light and airy.

      We found the staff were very helpful and professional.

      The hotel is in a quiet street about 100m from Catalunya Square and adjacent to a metro station. It is very well placed for both sightseeing and shopping.

      We will be visiting Barcelona again and will definitely stay at this hotel..

      A Very Poor Choice of Hotel


      I returned last night from Barcelona having spent Christmas there. It was my first trip to the city and I loved it - but the experience was ruined by the hotel. It is NOT worth the money - there are much nicer hotels on the same street which cost thesame or even less.

      Despite the guidebooks saying they have had a recent refurbishment, the lobby area was uninviting, the rooms dark and noisy and the breakfasts were the worst I have had in a long while - no freshly cooked eggs for example - just a tray of scrambled eggs sitting out for hours served on chipped and broken china. There was very poor lighting in the bathroom and old fashioned furniture. This is NOT the standard of a 4* hotel. Go somewhere else - this hotel does not deserve your custom.

      Friendly staff


      Have just returned from spending 5 days in this hotel. We found all of the staff without exception to have been very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel location was excellent for both shopping and sightseeing. If we are in Barcelona again we would certainly use this hotel.

      Very Disappointed in the Duques de Bergara


      We stayed at The Duques de Bergara with another couple last weekend over the August Bank Holiday.

      We'd booked 2 double rooms 6 months in advance, requesting a low floor as I have a phobia of lifts.

      Upon arrival we were given two TOP FLOOR rooms, one of which was a TWIN room, despite receiving confirmation for 2 Double rooms

      We tried to get the situation rectified, but were told the hotel was full and therefore no other rooms were available.

      This totally ruined our 'Romantic weekend'

      We choose this hotel, despite it being pretty expensive, because it looked beautiful and seemed to be well located.

      The original part of the hotel is amazing, entrance, staircase etc, but the newer part totally characterless.

      Our friends did get a double room, but it was small, and cramped with very little natural light.

      There is no way of guaranteeing a room with a balcony and street view.

      It seems the room you get is a very hit and miss affair.

      Not good enough for a 4 star Hotel

      The reddish brown marble bathrooms were spotless and ours had bidets.

      However, they were very dark.

      Breakfasts were good and the dining room spacious.

      The location was o.k, but there were much better ones, such as The Barri Gotic area or close to the Port.

      I would suggest if you are planning to visit Barcalona soon you take a look at the small 3* Hotel Nouvel in the old part of town, just off of La Ramblas, which just oozes charm and has polite and helpful staff.

      For less than we paid for The Duques de Bergara you can stay in a fabulous corner suite, with balconies

      We took a look around this hotel whilst we were in Barcelona and it was just fabulous.

      Great hotel


      there was 12 of us girls on a hen weekend and we had the time of our lives we fought the hotel was great very clean and the staff friendly especially the bar man he looked after us we stayed for 3 nights just wished it was longer the only down full the pool was very shady did not matter the beach is only 5 mins in a cab we went 13 august

      Not worth the money


      We stayed at this hotel for four nights, and was promised airconditioning. The room was small, and we could not open the windows because our room looked right into another guest's hotel room. When we complained they simply shrugged their shoulders. AFter two days of complaining they switched us to another room. It was a hassle.

      Don't waste your money here


      Barcelona is a fantastic city and we had a great time there! can't wait to return, however.....if you are considering this hotel I would advise you to go elsewhere. Firstly it very overpriced , considering what I paid I was expecting much more!. The food is terrible, breakfast urgh...... The staff were rude and unhelpful...... the entrance and lobby were impressive but the room small and claustrophoic. They tried to rip us off by saying we had completely emptied the minibar! - I kept a record (on provided sheet) of what we did have, a few soft drinks was all! - needless to say after big row we managed to pay what we owed and checked out before they tried to con us out of anything else!!!

      The location of the hotel was great, ideally placed for Las Rambalas and the shopping district. Go on the underground to visit Sagrada Famillia, its cheap and easy. El Cortes Ingles is fantastic for shopping. You'll love Barcelona but spend your hardearned cash on another hotel, this one does not deserve it.

      Have Sangria by the Pool!


      A friend and I stayed at the Duques for 4 nights and loved it! We found a last minute room rate of 99 Euros then called them directly and they gave us the same rate. The staff is pleasant and helpful, not superb and the rooms were very clean and spacious. The pool is an amazing plus to this property to take a quick swim on steamy summer afternoons away from the crowds and have a very inexpensive pitcher of sangria made fresh and served poolside at your command! We loved the place for our great rate and the pool, but when we tried to extend our stay, they were full of conventioneers and quoted us a rate double what we were paying, so book in advance or call them directly and haggle for the best rate you find online through their website (Hoteles Catalonia).

      Nothing special, over priced


      At first we were given a very small room with an en suite facility which was positively cramped and smelly. To cure the smell an air freshner spray was used. Obviously the effect of this did not last long. The balcony door would not lock. The safe was an additional 3.80 euros per night. Our second room was larger but to get this we had to give up a street view for one of buildings and rubbish. The facade of the building is great, as is the entrance and staircase, but you do not have to stay in the otherwise plain hotel to see these features. Overall our stay was mediocre and detracted from the holiday.

      Located close to the Place Catalunya it is reasonably located but there are better locations in the city.

      The price seemed to be expensive in relation to the room and general decor. I found it was a little cheaper to book through a city break tour operator, Citalia in our case than book directly with the hotel.

      Citalia provided a rep who sorted out our room problem, as the hotel reception staff were not very approachable or friendly, and gave very useful advise for the city

      Construction of the Cathedral’s choir commenced in 1390 and the stalls are one of the most significant sculptural works in the Catalan Gothic style. The dark wood has a rich patina through age and use. At the entrance to the choir on the right is a ...

      It wasn't long before we began to realize we were in the newer areas of the city - the university and the Barcelona football (soccer) club stadium. Fascinating how advanced this city is with its management of infrastructure. Cars, ...

The brothers had prepared a beautiful "Tickets" brioche and served it to Battery Boy with an amazing sauce. Ferran said, "I hope you enjoy my food, I once had three macarons" As Battery Boy wandered off he though Ferran must have also worked as a baker due to his love of macarons and how good was Ferran's cafe, El Bulli, if it had closed ...
