This hotel is the perfect location to see everything in Barcelona! You are at walking distance from the beautiful city center and shopping streets and surrounded by great restaurants! Be sure to have a drink on the terrace with a view on the beautiful cathedral!

The ideal location for a trip to Barcelona, busy square with something to watch or listen to all day. Hotel was clean and the chocolate on the turned down bed at night was a lovely touch. Staff very polite and helpful, would stay here again if returning to Barcelona

Four night visit. Very nice old world charm with large rooms and large baths. Door to entrance hallway to each room can be shut. We requested a high floor room facing the cathedral but were never told ahead of time this couldn't be done without paying a premium room price so we didn't have the option to do so. We...

We were extremely pleased with the Hotel Colon. From its location, directly opposite the Cathedral in the Barri Gotic, to the courteous staff, to the beautiful room, we could not have asked for anything more. Our room, #108, had a wonderful cathedral view , with a very nice small balcony. It was quite spacious, and the whole room looked to...

This property is right in the heart of everything. Directly across from the Cathedral. The rooftop spa/patio offers great views around the plaza. The staff was wonderful, the room was excellent. Ours was not overlooking the plaza, rather on the east side of the hotel. Likely a good spot for many as locals don't go to bed early, but if...

I stayed at the Hotel Colon for three days in mid January and found it to be a charming hotel with great, attentive staff.
