The first time we stayed at the hotel, we liked it mainly due to it's central location, accessible to many activities. But during our second visit there was more negative than positive : we had a room just net to our first room but more view of the cathedral : although the view was better the price difference was exaggerated...

This was my second stay at the Colon. I first heard about it in the 70's but didn't get there until 2005. Stayed a week and just came back this April. Loved it then and loved it now. Fabulous location! Just across from the cathedral and the Gothic Quarter and close to everything. The rooms are a little small, but...

Like most hotels within the historical center of Large Cities, rooms are built as they fit the existing floor plans, However spaces are reasonable and all the amenities to be expected on a four star are available. Location on the Square where the XIV the century Cathedral was built is impossible to beat.

Stayed here for 3 nights to celebrate 25th wedding anniversary. We were in room 604,top floor with terrace and cathedral view. Good size room, comfortable bed and very clean although it did smell fusty on arrival until we opened the doors to the terrace. Hotel location is excellent. All staff very friendly and helpful. Good selection of food for breakfast....

I rated the Hotel Colon 10/10 all round from Hospitality, service to location. My family and I could not have had a better stay in Barcelona. Rooms were large clean and stylish balconies overlooking the Cathedral and city square. Staff were super friendly and accomodating. About 50 euro cab fare from airport Thank you Hotel Barcelona

We just spent 6 days at the Hotel Colon. Tho we were unable to book a room facing the cathedral we did have one with a nice balcony with table and chairs.

The hotel staff was absolutely wonderful. They were very helpful with restaurant recommendations, shopping places and special places to visit close by. The view of the Gaudi Cathedral across the Plaza was spectacular. I highly recommend this hotel to all visitors.
