In my opinion, it should be rated higher. The location is excellent. The staff is EXCELLENT as well. They were very helpful. Yes, the room decor may be a little outdated, but not very. It has some character. Maybe a new carpet here or there, but otherwise, leave it alone. At least it wasn't one of those contemporary European shoe... More

A very central location just opposite the old cathedral, walking distance to 2 metro stations, buses and the central Plaza Catalunya. My room was at the back, without a view, but remarkably quiet for such a central location. Yes, the decor is a bit dated, but the room was was kept very clean which I find much more important, the...

We arrived by car early. The parking was very conveniënt in front of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We could already enter the room at 13:00h. We had 2 nice rooms which were connected. The view was great and with windows closed there was no noise The breakfast was OK but relatively expensive. Our kids loved... More

You cannot beat the location of this hotel. We chose a room with a direct view of the cathedral. The view was amazing!!! unfortunately, we paid for the close proximity to the cathedral with lots of noise coming from the area in front of the church nearly all night. It seems that the steps of the cathedral are a hangout... More

We had booked 5 nights in Hotel Regencia Colón, but walked into Colon Hotel. They had our reservation (& price) and we got a very nice room - quiet, as asked. This place was better than reviews suggested to us and more luxurious than we expected. It's right on the plaza at the cathedral. Turns out the Hotel Regencia Colón... More

We, a couple on vacation in the most busy part of the season, found ourselves a great hotel, in a central part of a great city! All the things that usually are a bit negative in hotel-rooms in big cities, were absolutely non present. Like water-pressure in the shower, for instance. Also the a/c worked just perfectly. Cleanliness was flawless,... More

Staff were helpful and welcoming and had upgraded our room booking to a suite, which is always a good sign! The room was well decorated, clean and comfortable and had a spectacular view over the cathedral, as promised in the booking. Highly recommended. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't comment on the food but it looked good... More

We stayed three days after a cruise and could not have been happier. The location was my favorite in the city. My brother stayed by the beach but this was so much better. I felt we were in the heart of Barcelona. We had two rooms, my mom was in a double with the Cathedral view which she was so... More

Treated my wife to a birthday weekend here beginning of July. Superb choice. I won 5 stars myself for picking this hotel! I can echo other reviews.Brilliant location - loved the entertaining square on the doorstep with the cathedral and Plaça de Catalunya nearby. The staff were highly professional and kind - the guy who helped us with our luggage... More

Love this small intimate hotel literally right in front of Cathedral in Gothic district of Barcelona. We woke up to live orchestra music on the weekend and watched traditional dancing from our window in the cathedral square below us with the most spectacular view of the cathedral! The rooms are lovely and this could certainly pass for a well-known boutique... More
