I stayed here for 8 days last summer, and enjoyed it a lot! The best location ever - in front of the Cathedral, steps away from the Gothic District, and minutes away from the La Rambla. It's a very touristic area but not too noisy. Ask for the Cathedral view rooms, they will give you a great, beautiful view and...

This hotel has a very central location and faces the hustle and bustle of the Catedral area in Barcelona. However the hotel itself is extremely peaceful and quiet. The lobby, the restaurant and the public rooms have a nice cozy old-world feeling, which makes it pleasant to return after a day of sight-seeing. Our room had a balcony and the...

The Hotel Colon is on the square across from the Barcelona Cathedral. It's right in the heart of the gothic district with restaurants, shopping and history. The Cathedral is beautiful. Hotel Colon is an older Hotel but well preserved and classy. Try to get a balcony room overlooking the square and watch the people gather and dance on the weekends....

We stayed at Hotel Colon for 2 days before going on a cruise. We were happy with the location, service and even the size of the room: small but comfortable and so was the bathroom.

We stayed for 3 nights at the Hotel Colon early December, 2011, during the Christmas markets. Our room for 2 cost 120 euros per night, without breakfast. What a location!

We searched by foot and taxi for 4 hours to get an available room but the cheapest one was Hotel Colon at 260Euros per night (July 2011)! And so we checked-in.

Neighborhood Profile
Barrio Gotico (Barri Gotic)
