Hotel Colonial is in a great location in the Gothic Quarter, especially if you're arriving by cruise ship. The room was more spacious than other European hotels we've stayed in. We were able to get a room on the top floor which kept the street noise to a minimum and had the added benefit of a balcony. The front desk... More

The staff were friendly and extremely helpful - from providing directions, providing extra towels and an iron and ironing board, and arranging travel (cabs). We did not partake of the morning breakfast, but the bar in... More

I travel to Barcelona several times a year and after staying at many hotels in different locations, I always come back to BCN Colonial. It's centrally located on the main avenue that seperates El Born & Gotica, it's close to the sea and by picturesque Port Vell. Jose, the front desk manager, is always kind and attentive and the rooms... More

Just ok place, some funky smells in the hallway. Strand bed and covers, but friendly staff. It looks better on the pictures and the lobby gives a better impression then the rooms deliver. Close to the beach and the gothic area. Many bars and restaurants close by
