.I would recommend this hotel. It was clean and friendly and in a five star location. It is across the street from the Cathedral and borders the Christmas market. We paid for a cathedral view and ended up with a view of a tree. We were directly across from the cathedral and could not see it. It is the best... More

Although the hotel is in a great location in Barcelona and the staff is really nice, there are renovations going on now and all day long there is constant banging noises that could be heard in the rooms. Also we came back one night to terrible lacquer smells. Make sure if you reserve that they are done with this work... More

I hardly can think of a better place to stay in Barcelona. Facing the Cathedral, steps away from the Gothic quarter, and walking distance from the Ramblas. What better you location you can ask? Elegant old style classy hotel making feel good from the moment you enter at it. I found the reception staff a little too serious and a... More

We spent a week at the Hotel Colon in September 2014. The first four nights were in a standard room as part of a group tour and then we stayed for another three nights after the tour finished. We had booked a room with a terrace and view of the Cathedral for the nights after our tour finished. We we... More

This hotel was a real disappointment, maybe most of the reviews were in summer, because in November it was really bad. The hotel was under renovation, so the terasse was closed, but that's not really a problem. We arrived late to Barcelona, and the second day we got awake by the heavy sound of the works in the hotel. We... More

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location. Our balcony looked straight over at the magnificent cathedral. Room fine. Reception staff very helpful. Buffet breakfast was varied and ample. We would definitely look nowhere else in Barcelona, which we reached by through train from Paris, great journey

Reception excellent, room good and clean. Not in very much so didn't use any of the hotel facilities. Checking out easy but beware of the Barcelona tourist tax,I'm never happy when you go somewhere and you are going to spend money and then they tax you to do it on top of all the other taxes eg food,shopping etc.

There wasn't anything that could be improved upon here.

The hotel is in a great location, but their customer service is awful. When we arrived, I asked the man at the reception, Gregory, to check the program at the Palace of Cathalan Music.

The view on the cathedral is amazing. There was a street musician singing lovely ballads in the evening, which was really nice. The room was small enough, the 'double bed' being two single beds (with single bed bedding). They were very comfortable though. There was a bathtub, which doubled up as a shower. Little fridge-minibar; a small safe. Old-fashioned decoration.... More

Staying in Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)

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.
