Beautiful old hotel in the heart of the Gothic area of Barcelona. Hotel exceeded our expectations with walking distance to all the main tourist sites. Our room overlooked the cathedral and the plaza below which was both beautiful and a hive of local activity. The rooms were clean and attended to each day - our bed was turned down each... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with my cousin, and I definitely recommend this hotel! Location was perfect, and staff was wonderful at the front desk. David was very helpful about transportation questions, restaurant reservations, informed us of original Catalan dancing that occurs outside every weekend, etc. Steps away from the Cathedral, Colon's outdoor restaurant is perfect for lunch (Tortilla Espanola...

Spent 2-1/2 days at this hotel before catching our cruise. Very happy with our stay. Room was simple and clean. The location next to the Gothic Quarter cannot be beat. It was worth the slight upcharge for a room with a view of the Cathedral. Very easy to walk places from here, and the tour buses, etc. stop at the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights after flying 24 hrs from Australia. The position was perfect and our room had a lovely balcony overlooking the cathedral. The room was spacious with a perfectly nice bathroom, and very quiet considering the position we were in. The staff on the day we arrived were pre-occupied, but very helpful when we checked out....

Stayed there 2 days after a cruise and was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was for the price. We had a great view of the cathedral. and our room was clean fairly large for Europe and quite comfortable. The Colon is also close to public transportation. The biggest surprise was the fabulous restaurant on the premises. The food... More

The location is awesome, few steps from the Cathedral, with many rooms directly viewing it. Clean, well furnished, all in all silent considering the position. The breakfast is copious and the personnel always nice and keen to help. The hotel is walking distance from every attraction in the Gothic Barrio and the Ramblas, as well as from Barceloneta... Really great... More

We had a great stay at the Colon Hotel. The view from our bedroom was like something from a movie and the location was ideal right next to the Cathedral. This is an perfect location for walking around the city and taking in the sites. The rooms are large even though you won't spend much time in them as there... More

My husband and I stayed in a top floor room with a terrace facing the Cathedral for three nights. The view was seriously AMAZING! I can't even describe what we got to see from our 'rooftop' terrace, but it was definitely worth the extra bucks to get the room with the view. The location was great and we were able... More
