Across the street from the cathedral. Great restraunt with outdoor dining Sangria and appetizers which get you grounded. Short walk to old city sites and wonderfuls restraunts, bakeries and wine stores. Perfect for a great stay before or after a cruise vacation.

The Colon Hotel was a very comfortable hotel, the staff were gracious and helpful and the location was superb. It's on a square right across from the Barcelona Cathedral and within walking distance to many sights. Also, very near the Metro and the Hop On/Hop Off bus. We would definitely stay there again. We had a room on the square... More

We stayed here for one night before leaving on a cruise, the room was very comfortable. We had just a basic room but it met all of our needs, the staff were very helpful and it was conveniently located. The only negative I will mention is that the rug in our room needed replacing, it was worn and stained, besides... More

Stayed with daughter for three nights last weekend and cannot praise the hotel enough. We are demanding travellers and were in e-mail contact with the hotel prior to arrival. Everything we requested had been seen to. Our room number 219 was perfect, quiet and comfortable. STAFF EXCELLENT, service superb and a spotless hotel. What a delight.

We upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the Cathedral of the Holy Cross and Saint Eulalia, aka Barcelona Cathedral. We had room 306, and every night we opened up the balcony and were serenaded with an opera singer or other very good street/plaza entertainers. The view of the Cathedral was perfect, and it was fun watching the people... More

This is a Michelin restaurant, Food good but service just lacking something. I suppose a Sunday night in November is a skeleton staff night. Will revisit next we are in town but we'll then make our presence felt, having just travelled from Manch, not on fighting form.

The location cannot be beat! Right across the square from the Barcelona Cathedral and located on one of the many walking streets/districts in Barcelona. So it was easy to get out and walk around. Rooms were typical European size, we were a triple (3 adults) but still had room to move. Front Desk very helpful as we arrived very early... More

A key feature of this hotel is its central location. It is on the cathedral square (the Gothic as opposed to the Gaudy) and indeed some of the superior rooms have cathedral views. Our standard room was on the side of the building but had a view of the cathedral if you stood on the balcony. The room was standard... More
