My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Colon for three nights and it was a very nice experience. The hotel location cannot be beat – across the plaza from the cathedral and close to many points of interest for tourists. There are numerous cafés, restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. On check-in, the staff was very helpful and...

We just returned from a weekend stay in Barcelona. First time for me, and we couldn't have picked a more perfect location. The hotel has real old fashioned charm and was very comfortable/clean. Not modern or boutique by any means, but friendly and well run. We didn't eat, but the restaurant certainly looked popular (even with locals looking for somewhere...

The Hotel Colon is in a perfect position, directly opposite the Gothic Cathedral in the Barri Gotic. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our large room was ready on arrival. Whilst we did not have a view of the cathedral, it was big and well-equipped. The bathroom was also a very good size, with 2 basins. No tea or...

We stayed here for 4 nights in February with my husbands parents and our two teenagers. My inlaws had a great view of the cathedral but ours was on the 5th floor and faced the back.

The location was perfect, very easy to walk to all of the sights in Barcelona and only 1 mile to the beach, which is perfect for running, walking, and biking. Staff was very friendly and they even upgraded our room for free. The rooms were older but well maintained and quite roomy for our family of 5.

Hotel Colon would be a very nice hotel anywhere. Nice rooms, nice staff. Nothing fantastic but no complaints. But what makes the place is the location. Right across a plaza from the Barcelona Cathedral, short walk to La Rambla, the center of the old city, the Boqueria market, and the metro. The location couldn't be better!
