Having booked a 4 days visit through Asda Travel for nearly £2000 for the 3 of us at this hotel we had some expectations of luxury. We were given a room on the 2nd floor with a fold out bed for my son with linoleum flooring. Nothing like the rooms advertised. it was at the back of the building facing... More

When we booked we knew we wanted one of the 4 rooms with the balconies overlooking the square and the cathedral. We spent so much time out there, it doubled our living space. The hotel is well located for sightseeing and heading out for drinks and food. Room was very comfortable, staff was really helpful and friendly. We did not... More

We stayed at Hotel Colon August 8-11, 2014 before boarding a cruise. We absolutely loved the hotel as it provided all the comforts we needed along with a perfect location. This is def a classic/vintage hotel so if you're looking for all new, American style hotels, look elsewhere. We got a nice corner room that did not face the Cathedral.... More

We were originally booked into the Colon's sister hotel but upgraded to the Colon and upgraded to a room on the 2nd floor (209) overlooking the Cathedral. Room was clean, shower good however there is a terrible repetitive noise as the water drains away, awkward how they have positioned the toilet and bidet which means you are unable to sit... More

The location of the hotel is really good, close to most of the turistic points in Barcelona. Apart from that, the service in the hotel is really slow. I got disappointed because I made a mistake in the reservation, I was traveling with my wife and I made a reservation for a single room as I got confused making the... More

Great central location. Hotel dated. Forget eating here...we went to Starbucks for breakfast across the street. We stayed 2 nights after our Princess Cruise to the Mediterranean. My daughter and grandson had a room on the 2nd floor that truly stunk (was never fixed nor were they given the option to change rooms) - our room on the 5th floor... More

We stayed at this hotel last week for three days, August 9, 10, 11 - 2014. We picked this hotel because the internet showed they had a new pool. I asked where the pool was when I got there. I was told they don't have a pool. We saw the pool on the internet, so we decided to go exploring.... More

Very clean hotel in a great central location. Our room was on the third floor overlooking the Cathedral Plaza- yet was very quiet when we closed the windows. This is not a "W" or Ritz C. This is an authentic hotel in a very old building. If you want "new" and American- you should be at one of the previously... More

We have visited Barcelona three times, this is the first time we stayed at the Colon Hotel and I would recommend it. Obviously the location on the square right in front of the Cathedral is excellent. It is also conveniently located to the Jaume 1 Metro, shopping, the Gothic District, great restaurants, etc. It offers a very walkable location to... More

Stayed here for last minute weekend. Loved the location (but beware of whole night noise from the square) close to Born and old city w convenient access to taxis. Pedestrian area means it's relaxed around hotel. Hotel is looking a bit tatty IMO and reception staff are a bunch of aged men who've seen a few too many tourists. Indifferent... More
