We started our combination land tour and 5-day Mediterranean cruise (Barcelona to Venice on NCL) with a two-night stay at the Colon Hotel. It's a 20 minutes or so cab ride from the airport. The hotel is by the historic old cathedral and many of the rooms overlook and have wonderful views of the cathedral and piazza. The front desk... More

I stayed at The Hotel Colon with my friends during our visit to Barcelona for 2 nights. One room was a Jr suite and the other was a standard one. The Jr. Suite was quite spacious with all facilities like the storage Safe, Nespresso etc. The Standard room was also sufficient and good enough. The standard room had a premium... More

The Colon Hotel is in a perfect location. Most places of interest, the metro, the busstop is all within walking distance. Rooms are spacious and very clean but definitely dated.

The Colon is in a perfect location, directly opposite the Barcelona Cathedral. The rooms are spacious (some under refurbishment) and there is a great terrace overlooking the Cathedral (which is probably under utilised as no one knew where to get drinks from. We took our own!) The Spa area is also lovely. Breke was fine and the staff all very... More

We enjoyed very much our stay at the Colon hotel. The location is excellent as you are part of the Plaça de la Cathedral, a very entertaining "Square" possibly the size of football field at the bottom of the Cathedral's large steps - (No - not Sagrada Familia) but very large and beautiful too.
