Hotel staff are personable and speak English to help you with whatever you need or where ever you want to go. Only a short 1 block walk to the Taxi stand. Across the street from the cathedral and right on the Cathedral plaza area where there are different things happening every evening. Breakfast can be included for each morning which...

Very nice hotel across the street from the Gaudi church. Can walk to many restaurants, shops and sites including the Picasso museum any City Hall. The hotel and rooms were very clean. I would go back to this hotel if I go back to Barcelona.

We were entirely pleased with Colon Hotel. Our rooms were large, comfortable and nicely appointed. The staff was accommodating, helpful, and pleasant. The terrace restaurant is a perfect place to watch the world pass by and thankfully served at times when we were hungry (which was always before the traditional dinner time in Spain). Definitely a winner!

Across the plaza from the cathedral. On the edge of the Gothic Quarter, and the Hop On-Hop Off bus stop is a block away! The staff is great (they spoke more languages than I could recognize!) The only issues were the sewer pipes outside our window (we had a view of the "courtyard") which really did not disturb us and...

Perfect location that is close to many sites. Hotel is clean and they are in the process of remodeling although it's still very nice. Our room's view was excellent facing La Cathedral. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.

The location of this hotel is stunning. It is in the heart of the gothic quarter walking distance to anything you need. Is is right across La Catedral and somehow the noise doesn't interfere. Staff is very helpful and friendly! They were great recommending attractions.This is a great historic property.

Once again we arrived at the Hotel Colón in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, right across the Plaza from the beautiful Barcelona Cathedral. Construction of the Cathedral started in the 13th century on the site of a church whose origins go back by another half millennium or more. Hotel Colón is a classical hotel, maintained in perfect condition and with...

Perfectly located among the bustle of Barcelona the Hotel Colon is the perfect choice. A great staff able and willing to help with any need matched by a beautifully renovated room works very well for exhausted travelers just off a long flight. Very good value for money

Because we were embarking on a cruise from Barcelona, my husband and I decided to go early and enjoy a couple of days in one of our very favorite cities. We had stayed on Las Ramblas before, but wanted to be even deeper in the Gothic Quarter, so I looked to Tripadvisor for inspiration. The Colon Hotel sits directly across...
