Fantastic location in a fantastic city. Gorgeous hotel, friendly staff and delicious breakfast - best orange juice I've tasted! View from spa pool is stunning. Great family room with twin room attached to double bedded room.

There is such an energy as soon as you step outside the doors of the hotel. And the labrynth of streets which make up theGothic Quarter are a very short walk away and yet go the... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel Colon, and had a room with a terrace overlooking the Cathedral. It was a very enjoyable stay. The location was perfect, allowing easy access to Playa de Catalunya and Ramblas walk, and lots of restaurants around. The room was large and very reasonably priced, and the terrace was such a nice perk.

We spent 5 days in Barcelona and wanted some place central and convenient. This hotel was quite nice, right across from the cathedral and an easy walk or metro ride to most of the sights. Very pleasant, friendly service and clean, quiet rooms. (Once you close the windows all the noise and energy from the cathedral square are blocked out)

The location of this hotel is perfect for anyone wishing to explore the Gothic quarter of the hotel, and the cathedral and square is literally on the doorstep. Rooms were lovely, with small balconies overlooking the square. Breakfast was great too.

This hotel is really lovely. Visited for 3 nights, bed and breakfast. The room and the rest of the hotel is kept very clean, with the room being cleaned sometimes twice in a day if you come back and go out again! The only slight niggle was the two single beds instead of a double, but it didn't bother us... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

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.
