We were in this hotel January this year for my wife's 40th birthday surprise. We both loved it. the hotel is clean with a modern feel and décor. Beds were 'lush' (my wife's words) Great location in the old part of town just off 'las Ramblas'!? and close to 3 tube stations so perfect for getting about

Hotel Colonial was in a perfect location to be near Port Vell and quite central to shops, beach, tourists areas and restaurants. The reception team were very helpful in any querys I had, whether it be directions to where I wanted to go or booking Cabs. The room was very clean and was lucky enough to have a quiet room... More

This hotel is fairly conveniently situated but there are a few things that let it down. The decor of the hotel is nice but any refurbishment seems to have stopped at the door to the rooms as once you step inside they are fairly tired. We visited when it was very hot outside and the air conditioning took about 45minutes... More

Great location in the Gothic quarter, near the marina and 20 min walk to the beach. Hotel was nicely appointed and our 2 rooms both had balconies which was surprising for a city hotel and good for an evening cava. Only slight let down was a smell of drains in both rooms but not a big issue. Road noise might... More

Dear Chris, Thank you very much for taking your time to express your opinion in this medium. It is a pleasure to receive opinions like yours. They motivate us to continue improving day by day. The issue of smell is because we are in one of the oldest areas of the city and drains sometimes emit this odor. We apologise... More

We actually booked a room at another hotel near by but they we're overbooked so we got moved to Hotel Colonial. I have to say for the rate we paid the hotel is lovely and modern and clean. The view from our balcony was also a plus, we enjoyed sitting out there. The only thing I didn't like was there... More

Following on from my last review- on the second day we were moved to a nicer twin room lower down with a balcony and views of the street. The shower was amazing.

My friend and I specifically requested a twin bedroom when we booked the hotel 2 weeks ago. The hotel confirmed that we would get twin rooms but when we arrived today we were told that there were no twin rooms available. Instead We were given a tiny double room with a small window view of the inside of the building... More

Only got better. We arrived, me and my son, at 10am. They have managed to arrange a room in 15 minutes. We got a twin bed room which we asked for. The room, on the 2nd floor (210) was not too big but had the required facilities including a small fridge for the water. The vending machines have 2EU bottles,... More

Stayed at the HCB in May, loved the location, access to shops, gothic quarter, cruise ships and beach was just wonderful. However, the rooms were dark especially if you only had one window, I noticed other rooms had two. It was very clean, and nicely decorated but oh so dark. There was no complimentary tea or coffee in the rooms,... More

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this picturesque neighborhood is the very heart of Barcelona. It blends historic artifacts from its days under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas brought to life by the many small bars and local musicians lasting late into the night. Fashionistas will be drawn to Portal de L’Angel, which is lined with well-known brand names and smaller boutique stands.
