We stayed in two hotels, in close proximity, during our stay. Our last three nights were at Hotel Colon. Ask for a cathedral view! Amazing to wake up to that view every morning. The square is a bit noisy later in the day, so you might not keep your doors shut when spending time in your room. There is a... More

I have stayed in this hotel twice now and on both occasions have had a brilliant time. It enjoys a prime location in the heart of the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona with many 'attractions' within walking distance. The staff are incredibly helpful and knowledgable regarding local eateries and interesting places to visit. The rooms are clean and airy and some... More

A well appointed hotel with friendly reception. Good breakfast with small English section. On a square but no traffic. Opposite the cathedral. Very close to a large number of restaurants and The Rambles. Hop on hop of bus less than 100 m away and this is the way to see Barcelona. The rooms were of reasonable size. We would stay... More

Small busy patio, view on the Cathedral, dressed up servers...all ingredients lined up for a tourist trap. But no. OK, too expensive for what it is, a bit pretentious, sloooooooooow (did I mentioned slooooow? I had to wait 20 minutes for the bill only) but if you are not in any rush and want to have a good relaxing lunch,... More

Very old hotel is located on a large square where there is a open market, very good restaurants and close to a hop-on, hop-off bus connection. Staff very friendly, hotel quite clean however, our room had a problem with a smell of sewer which we addressed by stuffing all the drains with paper to stop the venting of the smell.... More

We stayed in Regencia Hotel Colon twice during our Spanish trip and couldn't have been more at home. It's less expensive than its sister hotel Colon across the road not as luxurious but very cosy. The staff are very helpful and you're in the middle of Barcelona opposite the Barcelona Cathedral and 4 mins to the Ramblas - perfect!

Lovely well maintained older style hotel, situated in the heart of the city opposite the cathedral, in the Gothic area and surrounded by great restaurants. Close to shops and the tourist bus stops near to the hotel, which very convenient.

You cannot get more flavor of Old Barcelona than staying in a room with shuttered balcony directly across from the old Cathedral. Situated on a cobbled pedestrian square in the heart of the Bari Gothic, the Hotel Colon is unassuming from the outside and elegantly comfortable inside. It was well worth the few extra euros for the room on the... More

We are in Barcelona once a year and always stay at the Colon. It is an older hotel, but nicely located, nicely priced, large rooms and friendly staff. The old city and several excellent restaurants are within walking distance.

This hotel is in the perfect location - right on the cathedral square. The rooms were basic but very clean. The hotel is surprisingly affordable, given the location. We found the staff really friendly.

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.
