Hotel Colon is in a great location, opposite the Cathedral in the old town. Service is everything you would expect from a 4-star hotel. Our room was bright and spacious with a small balcony, suitable for watching the world go by, but too small to sit out on. As a Brit, I like to be able to make my own tea and coffee, but there were no such facilities in the room. The mini-bar was, like so many, well stocked and over-priced. There were nice touches - three of us stayed and they provided three bathrobes. All in all, a pleasant experience and definitely worth considering if you are spending a few days in Barcelona.

Room Tip: Get a room on a higher floor - quieter there.

This hotel is in one of the best areas of Barcelona - the view from our room was fantastic looking straight at the Cathedral in the Gothic area. The room was comfortable with balcony overlooking the square. Breakfast was ample but I thought a little on the expensive side. But for views and location it is the best.

When I first saw our room in Hotel Colon I thought it was small; however, I definitely changed my mind when I learned that the location of the hotel, opposite the cathedral and within walking distance of many restaurants, shops and museum, was absolutely perfect for us. And I soon got used to the room, which was just the right size for us with a great shower and great service from the staff. If we go to Barcelona again in future we would definitely choose this hotel!

Superb location right across from the cathedral, making it easy to walk almost everywhere in the old town. Decor is a bit old world and the hotel itself isn't particularly new or modern, but it's well maintained with comfortable beds and spacious rooms. Front desk service was excellent, as was the free wifi throughout.

Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is centrally located and perfect for exploring the delights of Barcelona. The staff could not have been friendlier. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices. Rooms are very comfortable and well serviced daily. We were delighted with this hotel and will be back. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Comfortable room and bed, good bathroom, excellent breakfast, and helpful staff. I enjoyed my Campari orange in the bar. The hotel is on a ovele square which includes a beautiful gothic cathedral and a brilliant tapas bar. Barcelona is such a beautiful city what more could you want?
