We stayed at Colon Hotel prior to embarking on a cruise. The location is great. It's situated across the plaza from the Cathedral de Barcelona and in the Gothic Quarter. Easy walking to tapas restaurants and shops. The hotel could use some sprucing up but the staff was very helpful and the breakfasts were tasty and ample. We'd definitely stay... More

I chose this hotel for its location and for that I was not disappointed. Perfect view from the 6th floor on the Cathedral de Barcelona. Also perfect location to walk around in the Gotico. However, the hotel, room and even the staff and guest look a bit "dusty", this hotel was probably great but lost a bit of its 'splendid'!... More

This hotel has it all for us. The location can't be beat. The staff is very helpful and the view from our window of the Cathedral is amazing. To boot, Miro once resided here and some of his original paintings are in residence here. It's the ONLY place that we stay in when in Barcelona.

If you're looking for a place to stay in the Gothic Quarter, this is a good choice. Right across the street from the Cathedral and centrally located. Our room had a view of the Cathedral and although the plaza below is very active most of the day and evening, our room was amazingly quiet with the balcony door closed. The... More

We were greeted by a wonderful staff who spoke English for us. Our rooms were very nice with large bathrooms. My room had a spacious veranda with electric awning.

We stayed 3 nights before our cruise. We chose the superior room terrace Cathedral view. Wow is all I can say about the view from our terrace. It was spectacular. Perfect location to walk to sites. Front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. We would recommend to all and will stay here again when we return to Barcelona.

Situated on a pedestrian plaza directly across from a lovely basilica. The balcony overlooks the plaza and louvered doors open so you can enjoy the street performers. Hotel staff was very attentive and the price fix breakfast was lovely. Definitely recommended.

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.
