My son booked a holiday arriving on the 16th August and departing on the 23rd August 2014 for my belated 70th birthday present ( I was waiting to have cataract operations on both eyes and wanted to get them out of the way before the holiday for insurance reasons). We arrived at around 11.00am and the doormen took charge of... More

Upon arrival discovered my reserved room was not available. I reserved a superior room with a view on the upper floor. Received a standard room on the second floor. They would not refund the overcharge rate. They just started construction in front of the location. The town is booked so they got me. Avoid this place book another similar hotel... More

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
