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...

This hotel has the best location in the city - - on the plaza, across from the Cathedral, in the Gothic Quarter, close to the Ramblas, quite close to the Palau de la Musica (worth a visit even if you don't go to a concert there), and convenient to the Metro. On previous visits I've tried the restaurant and it...

I stayed at the Hotel Colon for three days in mid January and found it to be a charming hotel with great, attentive staff. The hotel is undergoing construction which can be a bit annoying at times, but otherwise I had a pleasant stay. The rooms are fairly basic but have nice character. The rooftop deck and spa is a...

With pleasant memories of a previous visit years ago, we wanted to stay in the Gothic Quarter this time. We were so pleased with Hotel Colon and it's perfect location next to the Cathedral built in the 1400's. The room and service were pleasing and it's convenient to everything. Stop #2 of the get-on get-off buses is is a short...

This is a charming, traditional hotel so if you're looking for modern this isn't the hotel for you. I liked the 'HC' monogrammed towels, sheets and pillowcases and blanket rather than duvet. The staff were helpful. Our room was on the fourth floor with small balcony overlooking the cathedral so the view was magnificent - see photo - and there...
