The Hotel Duquesa de Cardona overlooking The Port of Barcelona is on Conde Nast Johansen’s Best Roof Terraces Around the World list and what a view.


Dine at La Terrassa del Duquesa for fabulous views of not only the port but extensive views of the city too. After a hard days shopping or sight-seeing there is no better way to relax or view than on the roof of the 16th century Hotel Duquesa and far above the maddening crowd.


With 40 rooms it’s not small but the remodelled former home of kings and nobility has a modern feel with touches of the past nicely interwoven. Just a stroll to Ramblas and the Gothic Quarter it’s not only the best view but central to the very pulse of the city.

Definitely one of the best hotels in Barcelona and the best roof terrace view this port-side city hotel is the one for the. But you don’t have to stay there to enjoy a cocktail on top of the world’s best terrace the bar is open to all.
