Have passed this hotel many times during trips to Barcelona. Visited the interior, and the reception, bar, sitting area and piano bar were always classic and comfortable (not at all "modern") and well presented. Got a double room using an internet site, and paid a fair price. Checkin staff were warm, sincere and were capable of good English as well... More

We picked Colon Hotel for the location on the square across from the Cathedral. Located on the edge of the Gotic Quarter and close to La Rambla. It's an classy hotel with lots of old world charm. Rooms are nicely appointed, having a small balcony looking out at the Cathedral was a bonus. Front desk staff are excellent, willing to... More

Location is great. Its a tourist spot, away from main roads. This hotel has really considered all the smaller details and the cleanliness of the room was spot on. Breakfast has a nice selection of healthy options (Fresh fruit and smoked salmon), unhealthy options (Cake and pastries) as well as the continental options that you would expect. Nespresso machine in... More

I stayed here for one night on business. The room was very old fashioned and you could hear noise coming from all over the place. The bed was also very uncomfortable. I would not recommend this to anyone going to Barcelona on business.

This hotel is ideally located to explore the exquisite area of Barcelona called the Gothic Quarter. It is a quaint hotel with all of the amenities, which may be a tad dated however they are in the process of a refurbishment. Some of the rooms have balconies which is a pleasure to sit on, get some fresh air and allow... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at the Hotel Colon. Our room had a balcony on the first floor over looking the square in front of the magnificent cathedral. The was always something going in the square...music, dancing, markets. Our room was very modern having been recently renovated. Views from the roof top terrace were stunning.

The hotel location was great because we could walk or get to a subway station quickly, and there was lots of shopping nearby. Our travel agent told us this was a four star hotel, but it wouldn't be 4 stars in the US. The rooms were clean but the beds were lumpy. Shower drained very slowly. The decor was worn.... More

A colleague and I spent three nights at Hotel Colon, a pleasure trip after a meeting and conference. The time was way too brief! We wanted to have several more days and nights there, and I want to return. The location, in front of the cathedral, is fabulous. It is also very easy to get to other places in Barcelona.... More

If you are going to Barcelona - THIS is the place to stay! In a pedestrian square opposite the Cathedral, it is a central location without traffic noise. Excellent facilities and the most wonderful and helpful staff - multilingual!! In the centre of the Gothic section, you have Roman walls and Roman around you. The harbour is 10 mins walk... More

Great location across from the Basilica St Maria del Mar. Beautifully restored. Everything seems to be brand new. Bathroom fixtures very high quality. Even the doors on the rooms and the hallways are perfect. Rooms nice size. A small hotel close to everything. A few steps away from Hop on off bus stop. Very close to Las Ramblas. Roman ruins...
