The location is fantastic and, for me, that's the most important feature of a good hotel. My room is comfortable, clean and quiet. It's a single room so is (as usual) located at the back of the hotel. Only two criticisms, both reflecting how old fashioned this hotel is. (1) I can't believe that tea and coffee making facilities are... More

Great location. Although there are many others in the area. Breakfast just ok. Rooms need a refresh, bathroom. And bedroom. restaurant and bar very pricey. Great view of the cathedral. Beds are just ok. Lots of burst restaurants in the area. I wouldn't go back

We stayed at the Hotel Colon for 4 nights and found it to be pleasant place with an accommodating staff! The location was perfect for walking around the Gothic area of Barcelona.....close to many shops, eating establishments and Las Ramblas! We ate breakfast at the hotel a couple of days, and though it's pricey, the food was good. The bar... More

The Colon is a lovely old fashioned hotel in a perfect position opposite the Cathedral. The reception staff were mature,extremely helpful and a pleasure to talk to. The hotel has a lovely comfy feel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay . We think it is important to avoid rooms numbered 125,126,128 and 130 . Whilst the challenges of early morning rubbish... More

It was so wonderful to walk into this pretty hotel setting after we disembarked from our spectacular cruise! The quaint hotel is situated just across the famous Cathedral, and sits in a somewhat private walking square, nestled in between small cafe's and shops. Location,location, location!! Felt safe, and near just about everything in walking distance, and if not, then you... More

Nice hotel in fantastic location. Reasonably priced. Friendly staff. Breakfast is overpriced. However, can be improved. Restaurant seems to be nice. Bath a bit small. Average amenities. However, everything is decent, including room facilities. Recommended.

Barcelona has been blessed with an unimaginable beauty from its bejewelled rooflines to its Catalonian culture and Catholicism. It is a brilliant holiday destination boasting history, art, beaches and shopping. When choosing somewhere to stay for me and mine it is location, location, location. A reconnaissance of the Gothic area with its fine squares and the cathedral made the unfortunately... More

Across from the famous Cathedral, facing the Cathedral plaza is this gem of a hotel. After two weeks in hotels that were very good but each failed in some ways, this place did everything right. The room, the service, the breakfast and the dinner were all outstanding. We got a sixth floor terrace room where the cathedral literally filled up... More

Being on a plaza that you share with the main Cathedral provides a great differentiator for any hotel. And being above average in many respects (staff, ambiance, cleanliness, furnishings, etc.) with accolades from satisfied guests certainly adds to the attraction. Of course, the price of the rooms and ancillary costs (i.e. parking is 20 Euro a day) associated with a... More

We have been to Barcelona numerous times, staying in a variety of hotels in a variety of areas. This time (Sept 2014) we elected to give the Hotel Colon a try. Our room with a tiny balcony overlooked the Cathedral - lovely view and extremely quiet. The square was full of book sellers, musicians, speakers and etc during an important... More
