I am so glad I choose this hotel for my first night in spain. Hotel is well situated near the cathedral with access to transportation nearby. The staff were friendly and helpful. My flight got in at 730 am and they held my bags until a room became available. I was offered access to the facilities in the meantime but...

This wonderful hotel with friendly staff and lovely bedrooms is situated opposite the gothic cathedral in the centre of Barcelona. The staff were great and very helpful and although we only used the bar each night, the atmosphere was warm and relaxing. We had a room overlooking the cathedral on the second floor and unfortunately there was a tree blocking...

Would highly recommend Colon Hotel, location was perfect for walking and touring Barcelona. The staff were all xtremely courteous and helpful. Cathedral just across plaza. The Gothic area has enough to do to keep busy for days.

We stayed for four nights in early April with our kids (ages 7 and 9). We had a suite with a view of the Cathedral. The views were great - windows open from both rooms and you feel like you are in the middle of everything even when you are taking a break. The setup for four people was just...

It goes without saying that the hotel is excellently situated in the Cathedral square (ask for a Cathedral facing room if possible just to maximise the experience, and if happy for a slight increase in daytime noise), it is within easy walking distance of the main attractions of the Gothic quarter and well situated as a good choice of base...

We booked 2 rooms overlooking a he cathedral and loved hearing the night music: opera, guitars, etc. it was wonderful - and if you didn't want to hear it, once the balcony doors were closed, it was very quiet. I had an issue with my plane ticket and their concierge spent half an hour getting it resolved when I thought...

A beautiful hotel located across from the Barcelona Cathedral. Many shops and restaurants nearby and within walking distance of many attractions, including the Barcelona Cathedral, Barceloneta and Picasso Museum. The front desk staff was friendly and efficient and the "superior" rooms were huge (especially by European standards), clean, and well appointed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
