“Great location, clean with good service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Superb location right across from the cathedral, making it easy to walk almost everywhere in the old town. Decor is a bit old world and the hotel itself isn't particularly new or modern, but it's well maintained with comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Front desk service was excellent, as was the free wifi throughout.

Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is centrally located and perfect for exploring the delights of Barcelona. The staff could not have been friendlier. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices. Rooms are very comfortable and well serviced daily. We were delighted with this hotel and will be back. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Comfortable room and bed, good bathroom, excellent breakfast, and helpful staff. I enjoyed my Campari orange in the bar. The hotel is on a ovele square which includes a beautiful gothic cathedral and a brilliant tapas bar. Barcelona is such a beautiful city what more could you want?

Located near to the cathedral and shopping areas. 5 mins to Las Ramblas. Decor of the hotel outdated and in need of a facelift. Hotel staff unfriendly and unhelpful. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The cathedral facing rooms have excellent views

This hotel was in a perfect location for a self tour of Barcelona. It is just 50 steps from the double decker tourist buses that are a terrrific way to see the whole area and you get on and off whenever you want.
Walking distance to everything.... and easy to get taxi's when needed. Parking is available also.
Staff was accomodating, rooms were large and clean.

Very nice and comfort hotel just next to the Cathedral, 5 minutes walking from Placa Catalunya.
Lovely and helpful stuff, room is nice (ask for the Cathedral view). Our room was towards the alley...
Breakfast is good, but after 2 days it starts to be the same.

Room Tip: Ask for Cathedral view.

Dear guest:

Thank you very much for your stay at the Hotel Colon and your explanatory feedback.

For any leisure traveller interested in visiting Barcelona's many cultural and tourist attractions, our hotel is definitely an excellent choice: Many of Barcelona's hotspots are virtually round the corner and the city's efficient and easy-to-use metro system takes you to sites further away.

We look forward to accommodating you again.
Kind regards,

Airport to Placa de Catalunya was cheap and easy with the A2 bus.From this main central square it was only a 10 minute stroll to the hotel which is centrally placed in a lovely square immediately opposite the cathedral.The hotel is classy and understated in appearance with very attentive and helpful staff.Our room was rather small and situated at the back of the hotel but we had purchased a reduced on-line rate so couldn't expect the best views.There is so much to do in Barcelona that you should rarely be in your room except to sleep! The breakfast was excellent but there are so many restaurants in the vicinity that we didn't eat at the hotel.
The hotel is very close to La Ramblas, the main tourist area in Barcelona, and major shops are close.We took a City Highlights Tour of Barcelona which included the Port, The Olympic and Spanish Villages and the incredible Sagrada Familia. This architectural masterpiece is worth the whole trip alone;unique.
On Saturday we sat in the cathedral square and watched traditional dancing to an excellent band.Late on Sunday evening we heard applause from behind the Cathedral.In a small street we found an ageing group of opera singers complete with chorus .Such a pleasant atmosphere and brilliant street music.A scene from'Quartet' perhaps.
Spring was a nice time to visit Barcelona and it is an affordable place to visit.I would definitely come again and the Hotel Colon would be my high on my list. PJW

Room Tip: Ask for a Cathedral view and you will be very happy
